Is the hilux clutch supposed to be hard? I find it hard compare to others.
Change the alternator pulley today, seems that was the problem with the drive belt. Although milage is low might not be a good thing, looks like its at the point for belts and pulleys. Think will change gear box oil tomorrow. what body oil you all used?

The clutch shouldn't be to hard.
Currently have Valvoline 80w90 in my dad's hilux gearbox... While you are at it I advise changing the fluid in the rear diff as well

75w90 will work as well...
I started using the above oil because it was the cheapest recognised brand I could find at the time. Purchased a case... Changed the oil in two vans,
Front and rear diffs, transfer cases, and a manual transmission... And still have some left for my next change

Yup! GL-5 for diff and well you can use GL-4 in the rest. Wah price u paid for the Valvoline? I used Mobil the other day.... $100 a quart... Pocket still have a hole...
Maybe Sniper you can give the brake fluid a flush to see if the clutch get softer. I felt a slight improvement when I flushed mines.

Also solved that slight vibration issue and why the serpentine belt burst. The pulley on the alternator was replaced but was not tighten all the way down. So there was a slight miss alignment. I took the alternator off and welded a bolt head on both sides to make the tool. I must say His 2kd engine is really easy to work on. Will also do the timing belt change out my self..

I use gl5 in everything... It wasn't Synthetic Valvoline btw... Cost about $45 a quart
There is normally a sticker with LSD on it stuck to the diff.
It is generally easy to work on... Except for the placement of the front diff fill bolt in the 4x4... That is a pain.
Planning to put Synthetic fluids in soon to see if it affects fuel consumption

Not seeing any sticker,mines is the 4x2. Wondering if its lsd or not. How much oil did the gear box take 2.2 quarts?

Cater about 3 quarts for the gearbox. Most gear oils are limited slip compatible these days... And it doesn't hurt if you use it in a non limited slip differential.

Thanks,
do you all think the 2kd is under powered? very short range in first and 2nd gear. Compared to a frontier. Slow take off on 1st...very slow. Is that normal?

It is underpowered... That is mainly because of the turbo. There are models of the 2kd from factory with the vnt turbo from the 1kd that make around 40% more horsepower (an increase from 100hp to about 140hp).
I am unsure about the difference in ecu and wiring required. What I have observed is that the manifold and turbo location are different between the 2.5 and the 3.0 as well as an extra sensor on the intake tubing of the 3.0 at the elbow just after the filter.
100hp is enough to get me in trouble so I am ok with it
A Nissan turbo diesel does move.... No denying that...

I am cool with the low speed though. The only issues is the slow take off from 1 and 2. Have to remember to go on the slow side at traffic lights, too much stare down from not moving away to fast....ha.

Also have being doing some searching on GL5 and 4 oil. The gl5 has way more detergent and additives which will destroy the brass in gear boxes and is not recommend top use, unless told by the manual. having said that what did our manual said gl4 or 5? I most believe its 4.

yep diff is gl5. not sure with the gear box. I looked around today and could not find gl4 oil. Parts place selling diff oil and saying its gear box oil, it clearly marks axle on the bottle...

On pg 860 of my owners manual, it states under manual transmission, oil type: gear oil API gl4 or gl5...

If you insist that you must use gl4... When last I checked (and that was a while) it was only available from redline or amsoil.

Thanks for the info.
If the manual says 4 or 5 I will go with the 5.

Yup, checked the manual, only the diff is GL5, the rest you can use GL4 or GL5.
Gearbox is 2.2qts for 4WD model and 2.6qts for the 2WD model.

Eh is $100 you pay for the oil filter???
