    Re: 17 Isuzu 300 auto 4x2 Fuel Consumption

    The consumption sounds too high.
    What was your previous car and what was the consumption (I assume with identical usage pattern)?
    Do you have standard wheels and tyres on your Isuzu?
  2. Re: The story of Shrek - My T5.1 Transporter 4motion

    I share your sense of satisfaction (R12k permitting). It does appear as if Shrek needed that nose job and R12k for such a service is most probably below par.
    PS. I caught a lift in one of Shrek's...

    Cats,
    Could you personally confirm the cambelt condition? I smell another upsell here.
  4. Re: Ford Raptor sticker kits - to remove or not to remove ??

    I saw a few (real) F150 Raptors this weekend. Man, that is one handsome beast. They were all unfortunately parked, so I couldn't experience the song of the two big exhaust pipes in anger.

    Re: Pajero Sport question

    Interesting question.
    Either NSRI have a typo on their side, or they are simply running the same add as last year to save cost, or Mitsu have a few of the previous model 2.5s still in storage and...

    For my own clarity: I assume CHT in this case actually means coolant temperature as it exits the head.

    Re: Toyota Australia in trouble .

    EGR is a valve that opens to allow exhaust gas to return back into the inlet manifold and combustion chamber.
    DPF is a filter that catches some harmful particles in your exhaust gas.

    Great stuff. Removing those seats (kicking and begging to go with, I imagine) saves you big on weight. My Pajero had "locating holes" in the floor next to the bolt holes. If your Pajero is the same,...

    I also have a Zero 3-way. It is actually a gas freezer. When on 220v or 12v, it heats up an element to mimic the flame. So yeah, like Joshua said: heavy on amps.

    Re: Trailblazer - some experiences and problems

    If there is one thing I know about these VM MOTORI engines when they were originally used in some Jeeps, is that if they start giving trouble it never ends.
    My personal opinion: don't do it.

    Mr Stranger,

    1) the auto box doesn't really have a direct drive in 4th, like the manual (even if the ratio is 1:1). So that perceived benefit of locking it in 4th isn't quite true.
    2) when your...
