Water pump replacement bolts

I just noticed there is bolt locations for the water pump after I've done the job. Is there any problems that anyone knows of that can happen if you don't get all the bolts right?

cold start

It could be your head gasket leaking coolant into your cylinder after shut down. I think this is happening to mine. Can you hear your expansion tank gurgling after you shut your car off? Is there a bit off white smoke when you start your van?

My L300 is in serious trouble

I would take the top timing belt cover off and see if there's oil on your belt and if it's coming from the fuel pump. 10mm socket with a small extension and ratchet is all you need.

Timing belt service advice

I just saw the other post with a Allen key. I love finding better ways to do things although I just figured out how to get the panel under the e brake off after already doing 3 timing belts. It was out of necessity though. My rad had to be replaced.

Timing belt service advice

There is a way better way to get the crankshaft bolt loose and tight. Go under the engine at the back and there is a thin stainless plate covering the torque converter I think it's 4 10mm bolts holding the cover on. Remove the cover and Just stick a flat screw driver(at 3 or 9 o'clock position) in t...

Re: Balance Belt - Who is choosing NOT to run one?

I did my first timing belt on my delica 7 years ago and the balancing belt was at the bottom of the pan. Torn in half. I didn't notice one bit. It looked like it was broken for a while . The biggest fear is if it breaks it could go through the timing belt which would be a disaster.

Re: So many lights, one at a time

There is a wiring diagram on delica wiki. I would check all the fuses and see what is the common ground with all the lights.it could be there is too much voltage going to the lamps and burning them out one by one.
