Any particular diesel treatments that should be used?

What kind of oil is reccomended?

Any thing that should be checked frequently to be changed or cleaned?

How often should i change my air filter? And what brand air filter?

Robbie, whats the mileage on the hilux and what kinda service do you have in mind?

Some points to note about servicing the hilux:
- Although the manual states the fuel filter doesn't have to be changed, I find it 'safe' to still change it every other service.
- If you are not changing the fuel filter, at least purge it when you're doing the service to remove any impurities
- I use Mobil Delvac 1 syntec. Its designed for turbo diesel engines. You will require 7 quarts (or you can just buy 2 gallons and have extra).
- The manual recommends changing the oil at 5000km intervals and changing the oil filter every other oil change (10000km intervals), however with the delvac 1 I change both oil and filter at 7500km intervals.
- Check and clean your air filter as well. I've heard they can be washed and reused, I havent verified this. Maybe turbohead can let us know if this is so.
- If its a 10000km service you'll have to grease your crosses on the drive shaft.
- Lots of people use cetane boost, my mechanic advised against it, however its possible to use diesel treatment in less than the recommended amounts.


If you need any help or have any questions, let me know and we can organize from there.

Thanks bro, I am out of the country right now but I believe I am around the 15,000 mark right now.
The service I had in mind is whatever Toyota might not do since I maintain it there.
I shall be back in May, you saw the TRD version of the vigo they offer in AUS?

turbohead, you know TTTL told me its safe to use the diesel treatments.

Just for curiousity sake, why is it unsafe to use the treatments?

^^ I agree with biggy. Saying not to use something without a reason is not a good enough reason...

fellas/ladies BUMP

Need some help....warning light for purging the fuel filter came on....
I read the manual before and it stated that when it comes on to drain it.....
They say to put a catch can when draining it to catch the water/'non-diesel' fluids...
Well I'm not sure where the fluids drain from, also do I have to start the engine for it to purge? i.e. after turning the release, do i need to run the engine to purge it?

Any help would be grateful, if i dont get a response, I will give Toyota a call..

Robbie, My van is working great... Ramped thru some flood water this morning in POS.

You might want to consider installing a prefilter on you hilux like what stuckindmud has. I installed one... I'm sure TTTL would consider that voiding the warranty, however I've already seen my start to filter off gunk.

My next major warranty voiding mod is changing the one way diff breathers to a free flow design :twisted: This will help when driving thru flood waters :mrgreen:

more like Port of Spain flooded streets....

You have to be a lil careful on wet roads though... Always check your tyre pressure. I was going over the lady young the other day and the vehicle just started to skid. I'm thinking its the tyre itself cause i had checked the tyre pressure last week, I might have to lower it again.

I had the same problem trying to go up the S bend (hairpin bend) after the Hilton coming up...

I attribute this wheelspin and sliding to the fact that no rain fell for so long and the surface was greasy...

This was on... Thursday evening.
