    Captiva 2.2 Diesel ERG disable

    Has anyone managed to disable the EGR system. I see its vacuum actuated. On my Fortuner it was an easy block, not the case on the Cap!
    Any advise?

    Re: Fortuner Fuel Consumption Comparison

    That is normal for the auto 4x4 FT. Mine gave exactly the same, and it was chipped. The only way to get away from the heavy consumption is to sell it.

    MediaRelease: Re: D4D hard start

    Ok I am not sure I understand this correctly, by "hard start" do you mean it struggles to turn over? Or it struggles to start, turning over just fine.

    Re: Toyota Hilux d4d starting problems

    What rubbish! It is a mechanical pump driven by the crank and pressure is controlled by the two valves on the common rail. Who ever told you this should get a kick in the nuts.

    Re: Toyota Hilux d4d starting problems

    So after some quick start spray, it was running? and now the fuel pump gets the blame?

    Get another mechanic to have a look. A fuel pump works or it doesn't.

    If you want a softer ride, get different rated coil springs (90Hz or lower). No decent shock will give a soft ride in a Fortuner ESPECIALLY unladen.

    Re: Workings of WRND charger

    With my Flexopower panels I found that they will give voltage in heavy overcast, but with very low amps (mili amps) coming through. Surely the WRND would need a certain amp threshold to start?

    Not bad Watt wise, still need 3x 105Amp batteries to make ice though, plus solar panels dedicated to charge those batteries which makes it an expensive bush exercise.

    I had similar issue on a Corsa DTi. Got a guy in who specialised in these things. He used a reverse thread tap to get the glow plug out.
