  1. Hi All 😁 I have a 94 LN106 with the 2.8D 3L non turbo engine - my cars only done 156k, the engine was replaced 10yrs ago at 149k and it has only covered 7k since. The car spent the last 10yrs garaged after its previous owner fell ill, sadly he recently passed away and the car was put up for sale, I bought it a couple of months ago. She was running perfectly well, until last week. I had to have the fuel lines changed as they had perished, I also decided to have the timing belt and water pump done at the same time. I picked her up from the mechanic after the work was done and all seemed good. Next day I drove her on the freeway and noticed a decent amount of black smoke when under load (constant). I’m 100% certain it wasn’t doing it before the work. I took it back to the mechanic for them to double check the timing and no issues found. They checked the valve clearance, they are out so I’m having new shims put in to adjust back to spec... I have my fingers crossed that this will resolve the problem but if it doesn’t where next? I thought maybe fuel pump (over fuelling?) but there was no hesitation when driving and no recent adjustments. Id really appreciate any advice anyone can offer, it seems odd that it’s happened after the work was done but she’s literally been sat still for 10yrs so anything could happen! 😉 Thanks in advance!

    Hilux De-Sludge

    Hey Guys, Ive had my 2.8 Lux for almost 7 years now. Trying to do services on her every 5000 but she has also been sheded for a year here and there through the years. She has always been a little dirty pig. Blows plenty of black smoke and drips oil from who knows where, but i love her to bits. I've had many different opinions on where and why but still she is in her same situation. Im thinking and researching about a Desludge with Diesel, ATF or a mixture of one of them and oil. I know this is a hot topic but i want to know what is the consensus on old LN106r 2.8 engines. I really think she could benefit from it, maybe, i think. She has only done 260000 but before me you can see she's had a hard life. I think a pigging mobile! Anyway I've read that maybe ill have to take out my oil pan after the first flush, how do i do that? if i go ahead with the desludge. or are there other ways apart from diesel or ATF flush. Cheers Im open to discussion and reasoning. A proud 90's Hilux owner. Senne
