    Re: Interesting but useless?

    Interesting indeed.
    Isn't it simply a case of less air, which means less fuel, which of course also means less kw?

  3. Re: Trailblazer Duramax 2.8 diesel - how often should engine oil be replaced.

    On my 3.8V6(petrol) Pajero, as well as my Isuzu 300, I opted to do midway oil changes. The Pajero was so cheap with 5L of 15W40 mineral oil and a R130 OEM filter.
    The Isuzu needed 8L of full...
  4. Re: Trailblazer Duramax 2.8 diesel - how often should engine oil be replaced.

    Yes.
  5. Re: When do engine damage happen when overheating occur?

    Agreed, and to add:
    As soon as the coolant starts to boil it dramatically reduces the contact area between the metal and the coolant, which will lead to a rapid increase of the metal temperature....

    Re: Can tyres make SUCH a big difference

    I really think the OP should relax and calculate the consumption a on tank to tank basis for a few tanks (while adjusting the ODO reading by 1.8%).
    After that he can decide if there is sufficient...

    Re: Can tyres make SUCH a big difference

    In the OP case the difference is 1.8%, based on tyre size. On a 10L/100km car, the calculation difference will take it to 10.18L, which is hardly noticeable. If there is a noticeable difference for...

    Re: New 2019 Triton

    Logic suggests that 8 gears or even 10, like the new Ford, will rely on shifting the whole time to make sure the engine stays in the sweet spot. That alone should result in better consumption. The...
  9. Re: Chernobyl - a wildlife haven. Would you go?

    Back on topic.
    I would love to go. I'm facinated by the Chernobyl incident and by ghost towns.
    I see R20k is enough for a two day round trip.
  10. Re: Chernobyl - a wildlife haven. Would you go?

    The table you posted is in milli sieverts, so it supports my 3.6 Sv as it indicates that 3600milli Sv is pretty unhealthy and likely to lead to your death by radiation sickness.

    Re: Ammo box, it is a good option

    Another positive to add to your story is that they stack very well without sliding off each other. Very handy for us blokes without drawer systems.

    I can't comment. I owned seven Pajeros over a span of 21 years and never had to replace a failed component.

    Re: Paj 3.8 v6 2005 lwb

    It isn't the MIVEC, so I think it is in the region of 155kw. I'll see if Google can help us.

    Re: Paj 3.8 v6 2005 lwb

    Those engines require plugs and cambelt every 90k km. Check the service history to get a feel for when the next replacement is due, and budget for nothing under R10k.

  35. Re: Trailblazer Duramax 2.8 diesel - how often should engine oil be replaced.

    I've "experimented" with the oil quality indicator and am convinced it just counts down 10k km. But yes, it is a horrible feeling to drive another 5k km with the car telling you to change oil soon....
