  2. Re: What's it worth? Toyota Prado vx kzj95 2001

    I bought a one owner FSH Prado 120 V6 with 174000 km, 2005 model last week for R100k. Stock standard though but still. Over R100k you start entering 120 territory. So you will struggle over R100k and...

    Re: What is this and how do I fix it?

    You will find the vehicle is either standing higher than usual at the rear or the axle is off set to the right possibly

    Re: Tiguan or BMW X3?

    Sigh!

    You said "VW 2.0 Tdi Turbo problems are a real thing" and I asked for your sources. You then responded with a list of unrelated problems on your Polo. The reason I asked is because I drive a...

    Re: Tiguan or BMW X3?

    This is why I despair sometimes. You made a statement about 2.0 Tdi turbos and when questioned gives me a long answer on everything wrong on a Cross except a turbo!

    Re: Km`s vs age and services.

    I'd pay very close attention to rubber items, especially all hoses. They deteriorate over time, distance travelled notwithstanding

    Re: Tiguan or BMW X3?

    Care to state your source(s) of information. That is a very wild statement! BMW had huge problems on their turbo diesels, especially 2 liters for quite a while.

    Re: Why shouldn’t I buy a Ford

    Funny you should mention this. Just about all reviews I have seen in Aus have rated the Ranger higher than the Hilux, yet the Hilux outsells it.
    I can only mean that long term ownership shows up the...

    For me SFA with front and rear selectable lockers is the ultimate. I don't like TC because it is not instantaneous, no matter how good it is and there is always a degree of wheelspin. TC also brings...

    Re: Decals for restoration project

    Alex, that decal used to be a legal requirement for delivery vehicles, but not any more. It is not specific to the manufacturer but was put up afterwards. So you don't have to put it back now.

    I'd venture the opinion that the majority of 4x4 vehicle fires are caused by dodgy after market work.
  27. Discovery 1 Re: 300 Tdi Rings and bearings replacement job?

    I have only ever overhauled one 300Tdi motor and that was 23 years ago, but I think the main bearing bolts are stretch bolts. So maybe just fit new bolts. But just check to be sure.
  28. Discovery 1 Re: 300 Tdi Rings and bearings replacement job?

    In theory what you say is correct yes. My experience in general with diesel engines are that it is a short term solution. At minimum, take off a main bearing cap or two and check the condition of the...

    Jeez, the heat was so intense it buckled that Disco body so much it almost looks like a Cruiser>:D

    I might be misinterpreting your post, but do replace the main bearings means engine out.

    I'll be blunt. You'll be downright stupid to do it. Even in daytime I encountered a lot of animals on that road, night time will be suicide (or murder if you have people with you).
