  1. Knocking noise on cold start up

    HI there, If it is very loud it is more likely the symptoms of injectors operation. Which is normal. If the ticking is continuous I suggest it needs a replacement of injectors. Then I suggest you where to buy them if that's the case. Good luck Noel
  2. Knocking noise on cold start up

    Hi O'Neil, These models all have this ticking noise. All diesels do it until the engine warms up. It depends how loud it is mate. Injectors could be noisy also and look for smoke from the muffler. If you suspect the injectors need replacing try to listen to each one of them with a stethoscope or a long screwdriver to your ear. Take a look at this link it might help. http://www.pradopoint.com.au/showthread.php?31335-Ticking-Noise-1KZ-TE Good luck Noel
  3. New wheels desperately needed!

    G'day welcome, I suggest you go to a good tyre store in your area. As they come across a lot of utes like it. Then it depends how much lift you want the ute to be. I advice not to go low profile with huge rims. Get 16"s or 17"s with good comfortable ride 70 x 225 roughly. hope this help. Good luck. NOEL
  4. Pinouts for early kzn165r

    Hi Neil, I don't think ecu goes to turbo timer. ECU only monitors the engine. You can check though. You mean turbo boost indicator clock. They will have a vacuum rubber pipe operation connected. Hope this might help? Noel
  5. Pinouts for early kzn165r

    Hi there, You can track the speedo cable from the firewall to the tranny. My RZN149 didn't have electronic one. Good luck Noel
  6. KZN165 - No CEL Light or Glow Plug Light

    It could be frying a cable all the time. Make sure all starter and alternator cables are connected ok and no short circuit somewhere around the ignition. Better take it to electrician maybe. Good luck Noel
  7. KZN165 - No CEL Light or Glow Plug Light

    Hi my friend It sounds like blowing a fuse for that system when you turn the key on. Try and check this issue Hope this help Noel
  8. 1st & reverse gears not engaging

    Hi Mate, You could have the trust bearing in the gearbox not engaging fully or syncro on 1st and reverse getting worn out.
  9. Hi there, It happened to me one day when they gave me the wrong globes. So you could have one globe with the wrong resistance that macks up the rest when they operate. Check if you have replaced a globe recently and try replace it again. Regards Noel
  10. Hi there, Check if you have bent any lines or you got dirt or mud somewhere between in the brake calipers and the pads. The brake pistons might have been stuck if rubber boots are teared off, so you will not get vacuum in the system. Noel
  11. Bleeding/Priming problem 1KZ-TE

    Hi mate, You have to fill up the fuel filter first before you get fuel to the injector pump. You should find a little bleeder screw on the filter housing and maybe also on the pump.
  12. Click/tick sound A pillar KZN165R

    Ok just another thing to check. Have a look around the wheels maybe something suspicious. Guess what I found one day. Brand new tyres with a long thin rubber from the factory that hits the guard while I'm driving. Actually you could hear it more on low speeds. It has to be a simple thing where you do not expect to find it. Look around the engine bay for something loose. I would take the wheels off too. Maybe some little creature!! Noel
  13. Click/tick sound A pillar KZN165R

    Hi mate, It sounds the same issue I had earlier this year. Can you notice that the speedo is jumping up and down? If yes it is about to stop working. So it is getting twisted inside itself until it snaps. And try to notice when it is moving does it do the noise also. Just try to take notice of it. Good Luck Noel
  14. Leaking in rain..

    Hi there, I suggest you to find out if it is leaking from the bottom or from the top. Get someone to spray water with the hose around the car where possibly you think it is leaking. You stay in the car and look where the water has been put. Noel
  15. Hello and Hilux 300,000km service

    Hi there, I think 300ks you will have to look for a new air cleaner pollen filter if fitted new sparks fuel filter you have to look for the servicable items like you do on a service interval. Also look at the brake discs and pads, and possibly flush the brake fluid ****Noel*****
