    Good morning,

    My 2007/8 Honda CRV CDTi coils sagged, and I had it replaced. Ever since there has been clunking sound coming from the left rear wheel, sounding like the coil spring, every time the...

    Re: Mercedes GL350 an alternative to Hilux??

    Air only. Was optional on the ML.

    It has low range with front, center and rear lockers. It was, at one point being considered by Merc to replace the G wagon, but for obvious reasons that never...

    Re: KB 280 vs 300tdi

    The 300 has less turbo lag, which makes it feels slower than the 280. I believe there were some issues sorted on the 300tdi making it more reliable. And then the obvious 96kw vs the, I think 74kw. ...

    Sounds like a broken engine mount. You can try K&B in 535 Jacobs street, Gezina (083 282 4082). They work on a lot of Amaroks.

    Re: Amarok De-CAT

    Decat and map. It also only smokes on boost. So I guess it is fine. They had Polo Tdi 74kw on the dyno, and the Amarok still doesn't smoke half as much as the Polo. So it is probably fine.

    The consumption is high, yes. I have owned the Fortuner you mention, as well as currently, a 2003 Prado 120 V6. Thing is, what else are you going to buy for the money you can get v6...
