2000 V6 Delica 6g72 Head gasket job/kit

I found an interesting You tube video on when not to change the head gasket. It goes through, seemingly, all the tests you could do troubleshooting head gasket symptoms so you don't change it when not needed. Called "Schrodingers Box" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVn-IDi7da8 He also lists a bunch...

2000 V6 Delica recommended maintenance

Did you lose cooling fluid or overpressure the cooling system ? I can't see any bubbles in my cooling bottle, too difficult to see in it. just curious cuz I've developed a slight overheating issue as well. i may be a little paranoid but I'm monitoring it.

Fair price on delica purchase?

Seems very high. If it causes you no grief for 2 years then it's a bargain.
Enjoy

Cam shaft thrust O rings leak?

I have to ask why this work wasn't done before you bought the L400? Did you buy from the Japanese auction block or a dealer? There's lots of initial import repairs that need be done when bringing in a vehicle from outside the US. Headlights, alignment, tires, brakes and inspection all need be done b...

Cam shaft thrust O rings leak?

Hi J I'm a moderator on this site, long time (3) delica owner and a 3 litre gas owner presently. I do virtually all of my mechanical work including the oil leak on the cams, timing belts and spark plug changes. Sounds like you have been given some confusing stories about the cam leak. The entire job...

4 cylinder gas Delica L400

Hi Sam Are you buying off the japanese auction block or from a "dealer" her? Any dealer worth their salt here will change the timing belt and do all the headlight/tire/brakes/alignment changes etc before they sell it. Check it out carefully. There are a few shady dealers out there. FYI New headlight...

2000 V6 Delica 6g72 Head gasket job/kit

Log onto Megazip (japan) and compare pictures of their headgasket kit and Rockauto's Continental timing belt kit to see if all the parts are in the kit. It's time consuming but the only way to make sure you have the correct kit. Rockautos timing belt kit had all the correct parts and was so much che...

I'd change the entire trans fluid, torque converter included when changing the filter. I won't explain how unless you need. I've already posted instructions on this site.

2000 V6 Delica recommended maintenance

This part is bigger than the rest and need be done first...... Plugs are a small PITA to change but clean out the air butterfly when you take the top end off the engine. Drop the engine a few inches when everything is off the top and change the rear (often) leaking cam covers. Be careful, you need t...

2" lift woes. What did I screw up?

Hi JB I don't often offer my opinion on L300s but here goes. The biggest problem is the 2" lift. Max 1 1/2 inch on the delica front end is best. These deli front ends were never engineered for 2 inch lifts with the stock upper, lower control arms and spindles. You will be forever replacing tie rods ...

replacement headlight lenses

Hi W Cheapest thing may be to pay your deductible and make an insurance claim. CCA on Van Island has parts, just guide your body shop their way and let the 2 talk it over. Alders took out my front fender,window visor and headlight this fall. The final claim was #$%&#@ outrageous but my deductible co...
