Hi everyone. I have a 98 4x4 3.0 diesel (5l) hilux. Engine was a low on compression and had a heap of oil leaks so I have recently gave it a basic freshen up. I replaced rings, bearings, gave it a light hone, full gasket kit, full timing belt kit, diesel pump front seal, glow plugs, valve regrind and head planed. Engine was reassembled correctly and to proper specs everything is correctly timed all marks line up dead on. Engine turns over fine now has plenty of compression turns over freely without any odd noises or anything out of the ordinary. Have also bled the system, is glowing up properly, is getting fuel into injectors. My knowledge with diesels is somewhat limited as this is my only one I've had although I have plenty of experience with petrol engines and have reassembled those before with no problems. Everything's plugged in, all lines are on properly, its all timed properly all marks line up, its glowing up getting fuel but will not go. I sprayed a little bit of aerostart into it today and it sounded like it wanted to go but other than that just winds over. Just wanting to know anything else I can check or other potential issues something I may have done wrong or something I don't know before I have to send it to the mechanics as patience and time are running low. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
Hi all, I've got a 1998 hilux. The motor model is a 5L with aftermarket turbo. Driving back from pt Augusta to Adelaide the gearbox lost power in 5th. Can only use 4th gear now. No 1st, 2nd, 3rd or reverse. I understand 4th works cause its straight through. It was rebuilt only 23months ago going by receipts. (bought second hand 2 months back). Chatted to the Mechanic today and he says he can replace it for 950 plus labour. I asked him about the possibility of putting an R151 in and he wasn't sure. If I purchase an R151 is it a straight swap over? From what I gather they are a stronger gearbox. If it's not a straight swap over what is required to make it work? Before the gearbox went it use to run around 3000rpm a100kmh. Anything I can do to reduce this since I'm replacing the gearbox? I read a little on a dyna 5th gear.
