    Re: What’s happened? And, why?!

    Thank you for your opinion! I am not technical at all, and appreciate all advise. I will test the battery.

    Re: What’s happened? And, why?!

    😱 Thought it would be expensive!
    The thing is, the gearbox changes as smoothly as always. Baffling!

    Re: What’s happened? And, why?!

    I drove it around on the farm today for quite a while today ( approx half an hour), in H , HL and LL. There was no sign of what happened yesterday.
    After driving around, I checked the ATF level,...

    Re: What’s happened? And, why?!

    Unfortunately, I have no idea when oil was last changed. I bought the car two weeks before lock-down. No service records.
    I am now checking everything, and will service it as soon as shops open.

    Re: What’s happened? And, why?!

    Thank you for replying.

    No debris in oil. I filtered it through. Quite dark red.

    I will change it as soon as I can buy a new filter and ATF.

    Re: What’s happened? And, why?!

    The oil ( dark red in colour, but without any ‘debris’ in it) was about four notches above the full mark, with the gearbox hot and engine still running! Way too much oil in gearbox.
    Can it be a...

    I am interested to know what the colour of the gearbox oil can tell.

    What’s happened? And, why?!

    I drove my 3.4 V6 to fill up today. Close to the filling station there was a shudder-like vibration coming from the front of the car. As I stopped at the pump, the car died in Drive. I started it...

    Re: 2001 3.4 v6

    Ek het dit gedoen, Francois.

    Die Prado was in neutraal, met net die diff-lock aan- die agterste wiel draai onafhanklik van mekaar. Die diff-lock lig bly flikker.
    Wanneer ek egter die HL of LL...

    Re: 2001 3.4 v6

    Kan jy die stappe asb meer breedvoerig verduidelik, Francois?
    Moet die diff-lock eers geaktiveer word voordat ek die wiele lig.
    Enjin lopend? In rat? ( sekerlik nie ).
    Dit nog nooit gedoen nie.

    Re: 2001 3.4 v6

    Op my Isuzu kon ek onmiddelik voel dat die diff-lock aan is, Danie. Daar was ‘n gevoel van weerstand teenwoordig sodra die diff-lock geaktiveer het. Ek kry nie daardie gevoel op die Prado nie. Hoe...

    2001 3.4 v6

    Good day. I recently bought a Mighty 90.

    I have two questions about my 2001 Prado 3.4 V6.
    Firstly, it does have a second (sub) fuel tank, but, from what I could ascertain, it was retro-fitted,...
