  1. Hilux De-Sludge

    Give this article a read mate, contact them as they might have a distributor down your way, My way of thinking is if you are going to solve an issue do it right once Cheers Conrod
  2. Vibration/shudder

    Have you got underneath and checked out the centre bearing in the tail shaft, could be flogged out, You don't really mention if the smell of a slipping clutch is still present, that could of just been a coincidence with the passing truck
  3. Hilux spotlight connection in wiring loom

    Positive earth, if that's how he thinks steer well clear of his advise! They are NEGATIVE EARTH, open the bloody bonnet, look at which terminal earths to the body, then ring him up and tell him he is a Fool. And as for running separate wiring because the OEM wiring is too small your only using it to trigger the bloody relay, then the necessary power will be supplied from the relay to the lights by a decent size wire capable of your requirements
  4. Hilux spotlight connection in wiring loom

    Hi Brickpaver, nice to meet you too mate,I hard wired mine so as soon as I flash or hit high beam they come on.I did it this way as I didnt want to drill holes for a switch and also run additional wires simply to have a switch.I figured the more I keep it original the better.I put an inline 30amp blade fuse(waterproof ) in the power supply wire from the (battery to terminal 30 on the relay )and also a 10 amp inline fuse in the wire from the RED wire on the back of the headlight plug to terminal 86 on the relay.(this wire triggers the relay so if you are running a switch run it from the red wire on the back of the headlight plug to the switch and back to terminal 86 on the relay,and as you can see the relay earths out through RED/Yellow wire on back of headlight plug when lights are on high beam, hope this helps you out mate, cheers CONRO PS Narva make a neat switch with a foglight symbol which illuminates and it fits perfectly into the hilux accessorie blanked off holes- Part#-63027BL,Let us know how you go Edited June 19, 2011 by CONROD
  5. Particle Filter Burn

    In regards to what????? The DPF but more specific info would greatly gather the replies you are after, Cheers
  6. O2 Sensors

    Have you physically removed them and checked them out, The threads are not smothered in grease ? A hard to remove oxygen sensor may come out easier with rust penetrating oil, WD 40 and the like. Tests show that many penetrants not only loosen oxygen sensors, but also poison them. Oxygen sensors are sensitive to "poisoning" if liquid of any type (that leaves a residue) penetrates the inner platinized surface of the zirconia cell (the heart of the zirconia type assembly).
  7. 2014 Aurion Strut Brace

    Unless you are fanging around a track, its not gunna do jack squat, Syndicates is giving you an honest first hand opinion
  8. Rim size

    That's the word I was lookin for, Thanks Champ
  9. Rim size

    Any thing with a 5x 114.3 PCD Ford stud pattern. Falcon, Territory, Nissan X-Trail, I was running rims off a Kluger on mine 16 x 7 and they exceeded the Load rating required, If you do put rims from a Falcon on even though they are the correct stud pattern beware of the larger centre hole on the ford compared to the hilux, you will need eccentric rings ( readily avail ) to take up the difference otherwise all the weight of your ute will be on the studs not on the hub
  10. turbo charging 12R 1600 motor

    Mate you do realise these things ONLY run a 3 bearing crank, save the heartache drop a 3y or 4y straight in, they will most likely exceed the final turbo figure of the 12r any way naturally aspirated.
  11. Difference between Hilux Surf and 4runner

    From what I understand Hilux Surfs are imports and they are stand alone when it comes to interchanging parts with the 4 runners and other hilux,s of the same vintage, to put your mind at ease best bet is ring Toyota spares dept and ask them
  12. This is what those pipes attach to and feed your brake booster Notice the vanes, they are more than likely only made from fibre,so any sh*t that gets drawn in will score the hell out of them, Only a thought to help you pin point the problem, but if you have checked and you have no vacuum from the lines coming from the pump, it points to it needing a once over, easy enough to pull apart and check the internals,but as trentmeyer stated if you are not 100% what the problem is, its all too easy to spend replacing what don't need replacing
  13. If you are pretty switched on with disassembling and putting back together, Id say the vanes that produce the vacuum are full of sh*t and need cleaning out or replacing
  14. Air-conditioning vents and smoke/fog

    Had the same thing happen to a new commodore we once owned all good signs of a air cond in top working order. Conditions must have been ideal for it to happen, high humidity, moist air. Not a thing to worry about
