    Default Recommended Hilux D4D Mechanic in the Helderberg/Western Cape Area

    Hi Guys,

    It's about time that I do a full check over on my d4d. Specifically I am looking for someone who you use who can do a full check
    on my injectors, replace my injector seats and ideally run a diagnostic on the bakkie to just check for anything strange.
    Can you recommend someone who specializes in the d4d motor? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Indi, Johan Nel, based in Bellville, work from his home. Very sharp mechanic - he actually owns a Tuna D4D so he knows them well, D4D's and VW Tdi's, he's your man. 072 5seven6 981nine. ps. I might add that he has been maintaining my out-of-plan vehicles for the last 3 years.

    If you make a noise or need music in the bush or on the beach, you’re missing the point.

    Thanks - you're right.
    I was inattentive - I apologise.

    If you look specifically at the injectors and diesel system, I'd suggest you go to Udel in Stellenbosch. No use going to the best mechanic or even dealer for that.

    Agreed, this is where most injectors in the area go to get tested anyway.

    A friend of mine has serviced his Hilux's here and he is very happy. They also did injectors on his previous D4D and it seemed like they did a good job.

    Cheers

    Toyota Kuilsriver has their own injector cleaning system and is known for good service
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?
