  2. Hi, Im new to the diesel Hilux world, having very recently purchased a 2008 Single Cab Chassis D4D KUN26 Utility. My impressions are good, except for the Malfunction Indicator Lamp coming on. It started about three hours into my drive home from picking it up (140000km's). The light came on. I stopped and unearthed the power connection to retrigger the computer???? and it came on the next day. Same process, same result. The manual warns of 'abnormally high boost pressure in the turbocharger!!!' The turbo seems to be working fine, (well its not slipping into idle mode), but the light is still continuing to come on. It's going into a Toyota repairer very soon but I want to have something to go on.......because the ute is driving fine!!!! Please help!
  3. Hi all, just wondering if anyone has cleaned out there turbo directly with ( liqui moly diesel intake decarb ) like disconnect the intercooler pipe from turbo also exhaust on other side then completely spray out! Also, is it a stupid idea to do so if my truck ain't lacking any power? I have previously done the ecu intake etc but not inside the manifold, the improvement that that made in power was unbelievable. Just keen to do while I've got R/H wheel and upper control arm off replacing and I have complete access now?? Cheers guys
  4. I was wondering if anyone had seen or knew of any accessory options to remount the original Toyota Fog Lights on my SR5 Hilux? Recently fitted an XROC Bullbar and I would like to remount the original Fog Lights rather than buy an aftermarket set. Any thoughts?
  5. Sharing my hilux. Soon will be adding TRD kit, not so sure about the wheels and suspension tho. What do you think?
  6. I'm after a tub liner for my 1996 Toyota Hilux, Dual cab. I cannot find any online or local wreckers, I'm pretty stumped. Any help would be great. 2nd hand or brand new, which ever one, preferably under $300. Cheers
  7. Hi, I just bought my first Hilux, (2006 SR5 4x4 KUN26R) and an immediate observation is that none of my 4 doors hold themselves in the fully open position, which considering all my cars all my life did, is very annoying and actually dangerous to my 2 kids. Is there something I need to do, a clip or something missing.... appears odd all 4 doors are exactly the same. Thank, Simon.
  8. I have recently purchased a 2011 Hilux. can anyone recommend a good 2-3" lift kit that will provide plenty of flex. I have a aluminium tray, and a steel bullbar. It has leaf springs in the rear and coils in the front. i am after a comfy ride, most offroad driving will be on soft sand and corrugated roads also after recommendations for good tyres for sand. Thanks.
  9. Hello everyone, I did some research already but I still cannot find the answer to my question. I am still a bit green when it comes to this topic so feel free to redirect me to another post. I have a 2003 Toyota Hilux 270VX with a 2.5L D4D 2KD-FTV engine without an intercooler. I was planning to add a bullbar, air snorkel and some bigger tyres on my pickup and wanted to get some more power from the engine (as it will be doing more work). As it is I already feel that it is a bit laggy from standstill and was wondering if adding an intercooler would help. I might consider adding a chip as well. Having said that, should i just get the chip (any product suggestions)? Should i get a top mount or a front mount interooler? I heard that top mount would have less turbo lag which is better for my case but considering that I will mostly be doing city driving with it, i was worried about heat soak after a while. Then again not sure if the snorkel with the front mount will cause even more lag. Should you have any questions please ask Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  10. Hey Guys from Melbourne, Driving a 91' Hilux surf, new to this so go easy.
  11. Hi guys I am new to this whole scene. Current vehicle is a VT Commodore Wagon, for obvious reasons I am looking to upgrade and am pretty sold on a Hilux. Having never owned one before, are there any things in particular I should take note of when inspecting? Also are there any things I should be wary of in the next 5 or so years in terms of overall health of a 2009 model SR5 Hilux. The truck in question is a 2009 SR5 Hilux, automatic, dual cab, 4x4, turbo diesel. Currently has roughly 120xxx K's on the clock and seems to be in fair condition. Haggled the owner down to about $25K from $29k. Any input would be much appreciated, as would criticism. Cheers.
  12. So my friend just received a set of these new mats and he cant stop raving about them. Has anyone else given them a try?
  13. I have a 91 live axle sr5 with a 2 inch lift running 285\75 R16 federals but they just scrub the gaurd Was wondering how easy or hard it is to move the front axle forward and are there any other problems created by doing this THANKS IN ADVANCE:)
  14. 2 years of utter frustration with my Bluetooth and my Toyota Dealer say its not their problem. As a travelling sales person I have covered 99,000 km in 23 months in utter frustration with the Bluetooth. I can hear them and everyone says its sound like I am under water.I have a Iphone 6. Final inspection is up, probably will get the same response from Toyota when I complain about it. OK car for the job if you don't need a phone, seriously thinking of changing cars. A $16,000 Hyundi rental have near perfect bluetooths. Is there anyone having this same issue? Secondly, my toyota canopy has had a broken lock for 13 weeks and they still can't get a part. What happens to issues that keep recurring are they still under warranty?
  15. HI guys, I'm just wondering where people have mounted there second battery in there 2002 Hilux. Struggling for space and need ideas.
  16. Hi all - appealing to anyone and everyone. My beloved 2007 Hilux was stolen from near my house, early morning on Tuesday the 7th of July from Marrickville in Sydney's Inner West. One broken front road light, Flexiglass traytop canopy with ding next to left hand side window. Rego AP 58 JJ. Any information please email me Thanks in advance! Bowani
  17. Hi Guys, I'm new here and with Hilux so bare with me. My truck is a Hilux 2000, LN146R, 3.0L Diesel, 5L, D4 Recently bought it and was driving around when the truck made a weird noise and the steering became stiff, open the bonnet and found the pulley on the power steering pump and belt has come OFF (lucky it did not caught onto the radiator fan). The teeths inside the pulley is shredded to the point it is nearly bold. The shaft from the power steering pump has its thread completely grinded down, lost the nut (come to think of it not sure if there is one or if there is even a thread), but the teeth is still in good shape (85%-90%). The belt is fine no cuts no bruises. So I am wondering what is my best option at the moment: -Buy a new Pulley (definitely), cant see anyway of salvaging it The biggest headache is the power steering pump shaft. -can I replace just the shaft itself because pump is working just fine no leak or anything (is that possible and is it easy to do it? tutorial?). Saves me from emptying out the power steering fluid. my mate also recommended that the shaft is fine, it still has the teeths, just need to make a new thread at the end of the shaft for the nut to hold the pulley. or worse case new power steering pump, quite expensive from what I heard, plus power steering fluid on top of that. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance. Also one last question, how long can I run my truck without power steering pump working? Kind Regards, Bill
  18. Gday, This is my first post on here, I really hope this is in the correct spot! Here's my question, I went and looked at a 1990 SR5 hilux on the weekend. the battery gauge, fuel gauge, temperature gauge, oil pressure gauge, taco and aircon all didn't work, I was told this is because of a wiring short that occurred while hooking up a roof mounted spot light (the wiring short blew a fuse). Are all of these things on the same fuse and is it as simple as putting in a new fuse to fix the problem? Any help will be muchly appreciated! Cheers, Aaron.
  19. Hi there, Ive owned my hill for 3 years now and apart from a reversing camera which I had fitted prior to delivery I haven't changed or added anything yet. Its time to start fitting her out and make her the beast should should be. Im looking specifically for advice and suggestions of the best additions to a standard model and order of priority to get my Hilux ready for Off Road trips. Cheers Match
  20. Hey People I recently purchased a 2002 Hilux Single Cab and my only qualm is the bench seat in across the front.The car came with a lot of after market accessories so I have saved myself a pretty penny in that regard however I wish to overhall the seating arrangement in the vehicle. Its a bit beyond my know how so does anybody know any mechanic, car builder that could help me remove the bench seat and make it a comfortable 2 seater. My girlfriend and I are planning an around Australia trip. If anyone can help I am located in South Western Sydney, NSW. Cheers
  21. Hey guys! welcome to my first post! I am currently in the early stages of a 1kz-te conversion on my 94 dual cab lux as i shagged my 2.8. i have gone and sourced an intercooled 1kz-te out of a 99 Prado for a very reasonable price and an even more reasonable one for the entire car. For the conversion i need (from what i know) - Engine........ - KZN GB - KZN bellhousing - wiring loom to suit - 1 piece tail shaft THIS IS WHERE MY PROBLEM ARISES! The prado i have found would be great value for money if i buy it whole and grab what i need before parting/ scrapping the rest. However this particular prado happens to be an auto.. It got me thinking whether i should just buy the engine and TRY find the rest of what i need OR if an auto conversion using the GB/ tranny out of the prado would be possible? Not the biggest fan of auto but it would make an interesting result. Any opinions or tips? Maybe someone has done this conversion before? Note i will be performing a rebuild on the 1kz due to the 240xxx on the clock. just for good measure.
  22. Well, after a bad dose of the "Man-Flu" and being dosed up on drugs (the legal kind, of course) My flares didnt stand the 'brick letterbox' test. I'm just hoping someone on here knows what years i can interchange as Im not even close to interested in buying a new drivers side rear flare at the princely sum of $508 + gst (unpainted, fk me!!!) So anyone wrecking a sterling silver tray/tub Id like to hear from you or those with the knowledge of the compatible years of my 2013 sr5 lux.
  23. ok so i have just bought a 2010 SR hilux and noticed that the two little front "indicator/parking lights" on the bulbar where damaged, i bought a new set of LED Narva "indicator/parking lights" for both drivers and passenger sides which i installed, once fitted i tested the lights and noticed that the indicators where flashing twice as fast as normal (which i think is because of the different resistance loads?) anyway i just drove around for about a month or two with fast flashing indicators when all of a sudden yesterday morning on my way to work every time indicated the hazard lights would come on! would have a clue why, maybe its because of the new LED front lights?? Cheers love to find the solution
  24. Hi I am nearly finished my v8 hilux build but im having trouble finding the wiring that would go to the dash cluster for the speedo sender. Could anyone shed any light on where to look or post up a pic for me please. Thanks in advance
  25. Greetings to one and all. Was curious to see if anyone else had a v8 Hilux and what sort of radiator they had in it. I have a 79 RN46 model with a Holden 308, standard 4 speed with a LN46 radiator and 16 inch thermo fan. Only problem is it gets hot when not running at speed, arouns 40 kph or under even with the fan. Was looking for alternatives to keep this one cool, as its 4WD capabilities are nil. It runs straight gas, goes like a dream on the road now it has a 3.58 centre in the back from 4.875, front diff not yet changed over. When time permits!!
