before u start on a morning, pull the dipstick, wipe it clean, insert fully, and pull then check, that will give u a better average of your oil levels...

my 1KZ suppose to take 7.5L, after fulling in 7L, its above the full mark, when started and allowed to settle, its at the full mark exactly....

the oil filter holds in some oil for a while, but either releases after a certain temp is reached whilst cooling down, or releases it slowly whilst cooling down.......

I went to check a surf down south. The asking price was 35k.
Lets just say "when something is too good to be true it usually is".

Best of health to you and your families for this year and always fellas.

neals, i cannot really see the oil from the pic. As droppa said check it when it is cool it should be on the top mark of the dip stick after checking it on a level surface. A rule of thumb is that from the bottom of the mark to the top of the mark in engine oil is 1 quart. so if it is too low one quart will top it off. If you put in 1 and a half from an empty engine with a new filter most likely it will not be over filled if that was your concern.

Start with the basics. Drain a quart in a clean container, and check it back. You call always re-use the drained oil cause it still new.

neals did you wipe the dip stick and recheck it? and parked on a level surface? if it is really that high when you open the engine cap and look in you should see the oil?

yes the engine was designed for a specific amount of oil, and should be checked when cold.

too much oil in the engine can cause the oil vapor to be forced out through seals and gaskets.

the most oil that the engine should have is at the top mark of your dipstick...

aye no scene man, all the best for 2012 to you too,,,,

btw u kno wen registration starts??

i had a real effed up Christmas.....

ending of last year i somehow managed to damage a cylinder head AGAIN, so i had to get that done, this time i bought a brand new head, and installed a new thermostat and external tranny cooler, and so far she is working good, not really pressing as i used to, so i hope this works out for the best....

btw i hav completely bypassed the radiator tranny cooler and was thinking if i should include it back in after the ext cooler, when its a bit cold, like heavy rain, mornings etc, my temps are low, like 70s, so i was thinking if i should add it in to help keep the water a bit warmer!!!

The only thing i regret was not using it as it should of been used, i use to baby it.
I never really got to enjoy it, by going off road .
The current owner is using it as it should. That 5l engine has real power.

That for the help today droppa.

hi all. i'm a surf newbie. recently bought it. needs some work though. right now my 3 major probs are:

turbo leaks oil - guy gave me a kit but i think there is a seal missing from it. i not sure if they change it in the hopes that it would stop.

i get a lil "bup" from the tranny ever so often

it hard starts. i dont think the heater works as the light just comes on for like a second and turns off.

any advice would be greately appreciated.

Hmmmmm

What engine and model is the surf? Some problems with them are generic and some are specific..For the turbo I would imagine that if the bag was open then some stuff are missing from it...Best bet is to put on another turbo are have the kit referreed by a mech. What do you mean a 'bup' from the tranny? While shifting or idling or driving? With the hard start, you may need to service glow plugs and injectors in addition to checking the heater out...But give us some more detail on the rig and we will help you out.

And is a Surf hoss!!!! You made a very wise decision>>>

good buy ripefig, you will enjoy your purchase!!

first of all what model surf is it? and what engine does it have in?

im wild guessing its a LN130 and it has a 2L-TE in it.....

the 2L turbo, the CT20 is know for failure, oil leaks and boost problems, to resolve this either repair or replace, to get a good working CT20 is another problem, but once that fixed, it works great...

the "bup" you getting, is like when u stop, and just about to move again u feel it, well a lot of people get that, including my self, some say its the slip yoke in the drive shaft does cause it, i learn to reduce that by slipping into neutral when stopping at lights, or wen you not gonna move of same time again....

if the heater light comes on and goes off its normal, you can take out the glow plugs and test them or manually heat it and see if it starts better, if that still doesn't help, make sure the batteries are juicy and the starter cranks perfectly, if not then that can be a bigger problem, Injector pump or injector maybe need servicing or even compression drop.....

are you familiar with the Toyota surf owners site, have a visit and look around, world of knowledge about these beasts there.....
