    Try this Norma - Thanks to iH8Mud - JBHorne https://www.dropbox.com/s/2rnk6nd9c4wapnd/2008 Land Cruiser Owner's Manual.pdf?dl=0 & here https://www.project200.com.au/atf-flush/
  2. Nice question….! I'm thinkin you talking part No: 11401-80010 which is the block sub assy = 117.40Kg according to Amayama Exactly which sub assy you order would affect this etc
  3. Jacky, Try these - maybe some pointers for you https://youtu.be/ZJESG91GbCQ https://youtu.be/4UKdMiWG9No http://www.offroadexpress.kiwi/Forums/viewtopic.php?t=35981 https://www.hilux4x4.co.za/views/viewtopic.php?t=29665 Not really a fan of these push button style engagement units for the exact reason you have found - that good old fashioned gearstick has good feedback… There is another thread on this somewhere -if I can remember where ill post it for you :cheers: G.
  4. James, You might be onto it with the timing - I'm not familiar with the reluctor ring but could it be out by a small amount or have play in it which might give random codes? - in a VVTi engine this could be why the symptom is not always there? Specially seeing as the mechanic also mentioned he thought there may be an issue with….etc Certainly not my area of specialty but if were me on another engine I would replace the whole timing gear set up to eliminate any stretch or play in the system - not sure what this would cost on that motor?? It would also confirm this to be
  5. Hey James, Not wanting to panic you here but it would be well worth your time to read up on warranty claims in Vic = here https://www.consumer.vic.gov.au/cars/buying-a-used-car/warranties dealers are notorious for trying to escape at the cheapest way out - not surprising. You don’t want to end up with a lemon after all the grief so keep your finger on the button… have a good read of the "resolve your problem" link at the bottom of that page so you know how to go about sorting out issues etc. If at all possible get the problem on file through Consumer Vic so then y
  6. Morning Daniel, So this gives you 220Kg left for snacks & the baby…? Should be enough I think?? Just check out the GCM = Gross combined mass for your vehicle which will be in the manual or on the compliance plate. It may have a modification plate which has an updated number so look for that too. A bit late perhaps but it would have been good to weigh the camper trailer as well then you have all the answers. Here's a couple of good articles for you = https://www.carsguide.com.au/car-advice/why-payloads-and-tow-ratings-should-be-taken-with-a-grain-of-sal
  7. You're lucky - its evil weather here today so a bit of time to hide from the heat…. Not sure if I have the exact model on your vehicle but try these links - Looks like the dash part No is no longer available = here https://www.megazip.net/zapchasti-dlya-avtomobilej/toyota/hilux-4runner-truck-42451/kun26-55710/kun26r-urmsyt-935177/meter-18018442#/il-416755148-10435416-10435416 P/No 83800-F0G21 Dimmer switch is here - https://www.megazip.net/zapchasti-dlya-avtomobilej/toyota/hilux-4runner-truck-42451/kun26-55710/kun26r-urmsyt-935177/switch-relay-computer-18018454#/il-416
  8. Hi Daniel, Hmmmmm….. ok… I might suggest you should get a second opinion Try these guys who all will happily look at the vehicle & try to sell you their product - do your homework & have a bit of patience I might add. That vehicle looks pretty well set up already so someone has put in a bit of effort there. https://www.efs4wd.com.au/find-4wd-suspension/vehicleapplications?series=152 https://www.tjmperth.com.au/vehicle/toyota/hilux/2011-2015-2/category/suspension-kit/ https://www.westraliasprings.com.au/4wd-suspension/ I
  9. Lance,- Now without being too for-see-tious….. (Facetious) - perhaps some multifocal glasses might be in order….? What about some high intensity LED replacement globes like these = https://www.narva.com.au/categories/lighting/globes_auxiliary/dash_panel/l_e_d_dash_panel - you would just need to check the globe type behind the dash unit to see if they are wedge type globes - most are but best to check. They are available in different intensities / brightness, / colour temp etc. Or Is the white background dash available as an option on that model?
  10. oh - i forgot - try this for your tyres = https://www.tyrereview.com.au/tyre-advice/the-4psi-rule a bit of experimenting & you'll figure it out
  11. Not sure if this is the exact model of your Lux but a bit of info for you = https://www.redbook.com.au/cars/details/2015-toyota-hilux-sr5-auto-4x4-double-cab/SPOT-ITM-425983/ & a nice chart by Beadell tours here - http://www.beadelltours.com.au/payloads.html - lots of other stuff on that site you might find interesting as well. So…. A small camper trailer should be in the vicinity of 1000Kg's ? assuming you & partner + baby arent more than say 500Kg…. I'm sure you're not!! 😉 then with the GVM at 3300 you should still have plenty of capacity in your setup
  12. no worries - Pedders are reputable so i think you should be fine most rubbish tips have a weighbridge & just look up "public weighbridge" & you could find one later of you need it a good indicator is how much pressure you find you need in the tyres to look ok on the road - depending on the tyres of course... Gary.
  13. Hi Daniel, Hilux's do break in the middle - usually on that model the chassis at the back of the cabin where the tray starts. In my experience its always been obvious for some reason or another:= 1. Gross overloading 2 Point loading on the chassis The overloading is an obvious thing to be careful about & only one answer which is travel light. Sometimes the overloading is behind the rear axle & so the chassis flexes & work hardens if you like to the point where it just cracks from repeated flexing - just like you can do with a fo
  14. Sounds good - the other Lux guys will probably tell you this too but make sure you drop tyres pressures a bit to have a bit of give like this = different brand / ply tyres behave differently so a bit of experimentation might be in order for your specific set up. Patience & no rain - i expect you should have a great trip
  15. Welcome Steve- Hmmm…. Sorry no specific experience on that unit but looks to me like you want to flip that fitting 180° as you say - so the hose is heading away from the belts - that way the welded plate there is acting as a protector from the belts / pulley. Otherwise what is the little plate for…? - locator? Not sure if this thread can help at all? - https://au.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/54653-5l-e-vacuum-diagram/ & this one is probably no use but you might get something out of it = https://www.hilux4x4.co.za/views/viewtopic.php
  16. I wouldn't waste the money on a lift kit even if you can get one- you don’t need 4wd for that drive as long as it is dry!!! - if its wet even most 4wd's wont be moving. The problem you will have is the limestone rocks embedded in the surface which will smash your tyres, steering & suspension with any speed. You can't turn a 2wd into a 4wd just by lifting it - the chassis, suspension & running gear are all designed for the task on a 4x4. If what you really need is a 4x4 then I would consider changing it over. Having said that the best thing you could do is
  17. ah roger that - a bit slow over here sometimes you know.... i was thinking perhaps the yellow ones all rusted away before they made it to WA not a lot of them around so certainly a worthwhile project to keep original if you can = classic
  18. Hey Bill, I don’t think that’s correct about the numbers - they weren't that rare on the road in the eastern states & only later (81-82) did the LWB overtake it & subsequently replace it. Yellow was reasonably popular colour with red, then orange, white, blue & the occasional forest green one around. I would think the most popular colour was red followed by the yellow in the 4x4's. that car really started the whole white FRP canopy thing is Aust as people wanted something better than the canvas / steel frame solution - an icon really!. Try Wikipedia here = https
  19. Welcome Brendan, Patience dude - work around the door panel & remove the plastic clips holding it to the door unscrew armrest & opener - (should be a Phillips screw visible when you lift the opener) & screws under the armrest GENTLY remove the plastic weather cover now visible over the door - the black goo will separate with patience & you want it there for later so don’t chuck it in the sand. Now access the regulator to remove the window track (bottom) - clean out the old glass etc. New window usually goes in tilted to 45° or more wi
  20. Hey Dom, In Aus Hilux's only have DPF's on the 1GD-FTV (2.8) or 2GD-FTV (2.4) engines released here from 2015. Lots of troubles with DPF's but equally lots of work has been done with them so its both a good & bad thing……. Try this - https://www.dieseltuningaustralia.com.au/dpf-delete/#1502273870676-882bda24-2a92 or https://www.whichcar.com.au/news/low-emission-toyota-turbodiesel-destined-for-australia rgds G.
  21. Ah bummer - You win some you lose some.. that’s a bit rich for 10 mins worth of press time! Haven't tried it but I'm told on the track you can also use the standard Toyota jack under a heavy point on the car with the right size sockets etc - might be a help for someone else.
  22. Yo Conrod, Sometimes a bit of heat is needed - have a hunt on the tube there are plenty of techniques. - this is one eg - Definitely should be a zerc fitting in your uni joints though - some are in the end of the cross & some are in the middle depending on the exact version rgds G,
  23. Steve, You’ve done the right thing certainly with the timing belt & valves. Do the obvious things first - IE: sitting around for 10 years = all the crud that was in the tank has gone through the system to the filters or to the pump & injectors if it got past the filter. My guess is the filter will be clogged with gunk out of the tank. Diesel grows mildew over time when sitting so this cloggs filters real quick once its shaken up. 1. Drain tank & fresh fuel (you have probably done this by driving it) 2. Replace all filters = fuel,
