Re: How much do you guys smoke and what grade of diesel ? MP

Diesel tests for air care only involves the opacity level....which is basically how much soot or unburned fuel is coming out of your exhaust... What the egr valve does or means is E -exhaust G - gas R - recirculation. EGR valve is actuated by vacuum controlled by a solenoid switch only on engine dec...

Re: L300 Erratic Temperature's

i would check the basics first....is your rad full of coolant? Is the coolant reservoir full as well? What is the condition of your rad cap...make sure the rubber seal isn't cracked up. Sudden temperature surges might just mean you are low on coolant.

Re: 4WD Not Disengaging.

Preventive maintenance suggestions....replace all your fluids every 2 years. ie. engine coolant, rear differential fluid, brake fluid. Transfer case and front differential fluid - I would check the condition first because unless you use your 4WD everytime, there's no need to replace that every two y...

Re: failing turbo?

Turbochargers will either be good or bad, nothing in between. Quick way to check it is to take off the air inlet hose (10mmor8mm clamp) and air filter cover (for L400) and you can see the turbo spinning right away. As turbos are very delicate piece of engineering work, it will only get damaged if it...

Re: crank pulley problems

Hi... Check the crankshaft key way housing for wear and ovality. Lots of times, when the bolt comes loose, the pulley starts wobbling on the shaft wearing that shaft quite a bit. If the shaft has worn down, there's no way you can put a new pulley and bolt without repairing or rebuiliding that cranks...

Re: timing belt changed but unidentified broken part : any IDEA?

That's called the idle up compensator. Previously mentioned, it pulls the throttle lever on the IP up to increase idle once the A/C switch is actuated to compensate the extra load the engine will need to drive the A/C compressor. BTW, the A/C compressor will only turn on if you have enough freon in ...
