Some help with A L300 muffler

Go to a good muffler shop. Don’t go to someone that says cu$tom,cu$tom,cu$tom. Should be around 400$ for everything maybe 200 if there just replacing the muffler.

New Delica checklist (please add to)

Replace the oil line to the alternator. The flexible one with a bolt.

Do you really need both alternator belts?

You should definitely keep both belts especially if you are having problems with one braking. There’s an oil pump on the back of the alternator so if it stops spinning the oil stops flowing.

Should I buy

When it runs does it blow a lot of blue smoke? I was thinking if the ip pump was just done maybe that is the problem with the ruff idling, could be a timing issue.

Reward: open my rear gate?

I had the same problem. You need to take the panel off and pry the latch mechanism because it slips over the other side of where it’s supposed to be. I live at main and 51 if you need a hand.

Oil filling into alternator

:o 2000$ for just the alternator! No warranty? I would be jumping up and down til I got my money back. I have gone through 3 alternators in 10 years but never back to back and it was always the oil leaking from the turbo which I just fixed along with the head gasket. I would definitely install a vol...

What to do post Delica?

I got an elgrand 3.2 diesel after my L300 Delica blew a head gasket and now I’ve fixed my head gasket and have 2 vans. The elgrand is awesome and my wife and kids never want to drive in the Delica anymore. The clearance is the only problem with the elgrand for off-road.

Another Glow system mystery

I had the same problem but I don’t have a manual switch. I had 2 wires chaffed together in the harness above the fuel pump. Check it out the engine vibrates so insulation will wear down.

Looking to buy a Delica

Look on the ones Rising Sun has for sale on Craigslist. Diesel is a bit different from a gas model so follow the list that he fixes before he sells them. Also there’s probably a list on this forum of stuff to do right away. Another option is to import one through a importer. It would be way cheaper ...

Also you definitely need to do the timing belt before you drive it.

Looking to buy a Delica

Velocity cars are a good price for a reason. I bought one and I’m generally happy with it. They don’t do any maintenance but maybe change the fluids. That is why there prices are good. If you are a good mechanic then it’s a good buy because you can do the work yourself. I have tried to get parts fro...

Batteries dead/not charging

There should be an alternator shop around you that can overhaul in a day for under 200$. It is a real pain to remove but might be a lot easier if you take the drivers seat out and the panel under it. If you read the thread on the head replacement it shows how to remove it. I’ve had my alternator reb...

L300 wont run, what to do next?

Check the ground that attaches to the head under the glow plugs. If the head was off that could have easily been missed. Also check for voltage on the glow plug rail to see if your actually getting power to them.
