I just bought 1996 Toyota Prado 1 kz 3000cc D . The car is in good nick both body and engine wise. Suspension and shocks also fine. But as a general rule, for second hand cars all oils filters plugs and belts to be replaced on first day. This is my first deisel vehicle, pl advice which things to change and what is their replacement milleage.Also i m looking for new crystal lights, for how much i would get them.
pl guys comment
My advice would not be directly applicable in Pakistan. I am sure the experts will reply soon enough.
Congrats ... On your purchase .. Post some pics also ..
About the crystal lights you can get it from Khan Autos opposite chaudry sons in sadder Peshawar .. He has a lot of parts and accessories for pardo but he is very expensive.
If you want I can arrange lights from here (Dubai), last time I asked it was around AED 600/- for the pair which is very reasonable price.
1kz 3000cc Diesel Engine ......... and u said replace PLUGS ............. WHAT A JOKE ........... Lolz
bro this is my first diesel vehicle and i know nothing about it. U want to say there r no plugs in 1 kz, ok i might b wrong, thats y i m here on pw forum so that u guys can guide me. Pl advice which things to replace
thanks bro, let me check prices here then i will let u know. I will post pics after facelifting of the vehicle.
what is wrong in saying plugs .for all we know the chap might have been talking about glow plugs.surly diesels do have them.why not just help him out as has khanrocks.cheers:)
just get the nozzles serviced.
mashallah Allah naseeb karay
i think give some time to your beast,,,, like get to know what it really wants,,,,,,
well buss vese he pooch rahaa hu,,,,, gari lete he uss per aese kerna theek rehta hay ???
service pump and change nozzels with reputed diesel laboratory......
why are you guys forcing him to do stuff when his car is OK - the preventive stuff is just a timing belt change, check the fan clutch for proper functioning and check/replenish/replace fluids as necessary. Clean out the air ways and EGR to ensure proper engine breathing.
For nozzles leave those alone and work on them when you hear nailing or have a hard time starting or just stupid smoking with loss of power. If you mess with the pump you will have to set it with a dial gauge and adapter - or it will be like a blind doctor trying to perform brain surgery.
I would just run a bottle of liqui moly purge through the system for proper functioning.
today i visited khan autos, got crystal lights ( head and indicator ) for 15000. Also bought other serviceable stuff like oils, filters , belts and some shock bushes. Thanks for ur concern.
as long as nozzles r not giving any prob, i dont think to touch it
yes when u buy a second hand vehicle, just flush out all oils and filter and get them replaced with genuine one. If vehicle is a bit old then it is wise to replace timing and fan belts.
yes i also think so. Thanks bro
Great ! He must have reconsidered his prices cuz when I asked him about 6 months ago he was asking 30,000 for the pair with the indicator lights ...
Anyways waiting for the face lifted pics ...
if they r not giving any prob, still should i service them
