4m40 engine rattle

After doing some minor work to my engine I've noticed a loud engine rattle while driving ONLY between 1500-2000 rpm. Has been doing it for about 2000 km, but no other symptoms. Doesn't do it in neutral, so its difficult to tell where its coming from in the engine but sounds like the driver's side. ...

Re: Need help finding a small lift for L300, shipped to Florida

You can run 30' tires without a lift. Loved the cooper AT3 30's on mine.

Re: Does a missing vibration damper explain my problems? bad u joint?

Go have the drive shaft balanced and u joints checked. You don't have limited slip differential so the one wheel is the drive and the other does what it does with no resistance up on the stands. I've chased noises down like crazy and an unbalanced drive shaft does crazy things.

Sudden loss of power.

If it isn't timed perfect then get that done. We tried to eyeball a timing when the gun we used was acting up. It ran crappy, smoked and hotter than it should have. It was parked immediately till we could do it right. Also check and make sure the air filter is good. Huge difference there too. (The v...

Re: 1990 L300 - reverse lights won't turn on

Other possibility is if you have trailer light plug / module. That module may have died. It's happened to me in the past. Just went and picked up another trailer light adapter and rewired it (on my old L300)

Re: L400 suspension lift - if you have it, make sure it's good

That's strange.

Not sure why that would come up unless something was different on yours to start with.
Mine was a 1" spacer, but the heavy large coils putting it up about 2" total.

Hard to sell L400 Series 2

Must be the oil industry but the number of vehicles being up for sale is enormous. We had put the L400 up for sale thinking it should move alright. Silly wife, something about her and the 2 kids not being able to drive the van so it wasn't fair her vehicle was always in use. We even had a full mecha...

Re: Just bought my holy grail: 1997 Pajero Evolution

Do you have a mechanic in mind for maintenance and repairs? Get ahead on that front. And always always put the highest octane fuel in this unit.

Re: Question about installing Aux battery just for starting

Putting a third in is excessive. 2 proper batteries should be enough. You may be having a problem with the connections , one of the batteries or both or maybe your alternator.

Re: power locks don't work

Check the connection at the door hinge. Those wires can wear.
