    Only been running veg in it for a week or two approx 1500 miles. I have cleaned the tank and two of the filters on the pump but as mentioned the one under the spill is near impossible to get off it is as if it is rusted in place. I can see that the pump will need to come off to remove it. I have...

    Turbo sounds good. Onne of the reasons I suspect gearbox is that the rad has been changed by the previous owner and i suspect it filled the trans with coolant if not cleaned out properly it will not do the gearbox any favours. This issue first started whilst running on diesel only and has only...

    I have bought a pup, been sold a lemon, been stitched up, ripped off, shafted!. Which ever way you paint it I am now convinced that the auto box is buggered. The car now only needs to be shown a hill or even a slight incline will do and it reduces itself to 10mph and a faint judder. when it...

    It has been suggested that the EGR could be cacked up. Anyone agree I will block it off and give it a go but I am losing faith in it and am looking for yet another Hilux to add to the collection they are easier to fix when they go wrong. I love my Collie but it's not looking promising as a keeper

    I have checked the fuel system from front to back today but no joy blew the lines out with a compressor, disconnected the breather, changed the filter again but still the same. I tested the gearbox speed sensor to see if that was at fault but the resistance is ok. I also took out the ecu and had...

Changed the fuel pick up pipe (looking crusty and snapped taking tank off) £30 gen Toyota part. New fuel...

    Fuel Starvation issues

    Took the tank off and the pickup pipe is corroded so a new one will arrive in the morning fingers crossed that will do the trick. I am trying to source a new axle I assume a petrol one will be ok as long as I swap the diff as I should think the ratio will be different? or if I buy a pair will it...
