    Like the title says our plow trucks oil pressure light/choke light stays on. The truck is only used at our camp. The light was staying on and then the idle was slowly getting lower and lower- then it died. Had some trouble trying to refire it. Let it sit for 10 minutes and it refired and rode around fine. The light stays on though. Drove it around abit the next day and it rode fine but the light is still on.

    Im going to buy a manual but Im guesing the choke light is to blame. The truck has 62k on it. Oil is full. Has anyone ever had a similar experience? Thanks

    I was messing with the carb opening and closing the flaps but Im not sure how the choke is supposed to operate. Going to get a manual. Only problem is the truck is 350 miles away at our camp.
