  1. Hi I have a 2015 model Hilux SR last of the old shape. The diff centre failed at 9500K's and Toyota rejected warranty due to what they claimed to be shock loading. I took it to a diff shop for further advice and he told me that Hilux diffs are a real problem but Toyota wont admit it. He went on to say that most aren't set up properly ie backlash in crown wheel and pinion is not set properly. Has anyone else had issues like this. I ended up paying for the repair to get the car back on the road, ironically the parts bloke quoted the price for the diff centre of the top of his head without even looking at the computer. What does that tell you.
  2. Hi, I am new to the world of toyota as well as this forum. I recently purchased a 1991 2wd Hilux SR5 running a 22R carby engine. I have gone through the usually maintenance when purchasing a vehicle, new plugs, leads, filters, oil etc etc, Since purchase she hasn't run perfectly, I bought a haynes manual and I have been going through it to get her back to where she should be. few issues I have found that I would love some advice or help with. 1. I have gone through the timing procedure as per the manual and cant get her to time correctly. When the rocker cover was removed and i manually turned the engine to get cylinder 1 at TDC on the compression stroke as per the dimple on the camshaft sprocket, the timing markings on the on the crankshaft pulley dont line up. the mark on the pulley is about 25mm to the right of the '0' mark on the timing plate. Im confused why....... 2. I have adjusted the valve clearances as per the manual but the valves still seem to be noisy, im assuming it has to do with the above problem. 3. Apart from the tapping from the valves shes and drives ok, but under hard acceleration she runs out of puff at 4000 RPM and backfires when changing gears (manual gear box) is this all related to the above timing issue or is there something im missing. If you need anymore info please let me know. Thanks
  3. Hi I have a 2002 4x4 v6 petrol hilux pushing 250,000 kms and it has a loud whistling sound I think coming from the fuel pump. Used to just happen when it was lowish on fuel but now always does it. Looking for any advice on what might be wrong or what I can do? Thanks

    2015 vs 2016

    Hey fellas, looking to buy a new hilux sr 2016 model for 34k, the salesman has offered me a 2015 sr for 32k.. Just wondering weather there was much of a change from 2015 models to 2016 models in relation to the motor and interior, a few friends just told me is only a stamp an that nothing has changed. So I need your help.. Are these offers appropriate for the earlier model? And have there been any changes? regards, Matty..
  5. i'm looking at buying a hardtop canopy for my 2012 TRD HiLux. These are the ones I have my eye on - - Does anybody have any experience with something similar (or this particular brand)? There isn't a whole lot of info out there about them. Any advice/info would be great. Cheers.
  6. Hi all, I'm new here, and just have a quick question. I've done a ton of research but can't get any definitive figures. I have an LN46 hilux and the radiator went bust. None of my local parts stores stock a radiator for this model, and neither does eBay. However, eBay has a ton of radiators for the two generations above (hiluxes with the 2L and 3L engines). My question is: Do radiators that fit the 2L and 3L powered hiluxes (year 1984 - 1990 or thereabouts) fit in my 1982 LN46 Hilux? Or, is someone able to send me the distances between the mounting holes from the radiator if they have a diesel hilux between 1984 - 1990. Cheers, Karl.
  7. Hi guys, I've got a 4x4 1997 2.4 22r powered hilux, my gearbox recently blew up and I'm wondering if I can swap it with a gearbox out of an 87 diesel 4x4 hilux and if so what I need to do to get it to go in? Do I need to swap bell housings or somthing like that or will it just go together? any info on any possible gearbox swaps would be appreciated cheers

  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. Sharing my hilux. Soon will be adding TRD kit, not so sure about the wheels and suspension tho. What do you think?
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. Hey Guys from Melbourne, Driving a 91' Hilux surf, new to this so go easy.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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:)
  21. 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?
  22. HI guys, I'm just wondering where people have mounted there second battery in there 2002 Hilux. Struggling for space and need ideas.
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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.
