So fuel light blinking spent about 400 on treatments and plenty pumping only to realise it is the fuel canister that needed changing

When I pumped out the canister and then took out the drain cork and put on the ignition without starting the light continued to blink there was nothing in the canister so the light should have gone out.

Got one by roc. Came with filter included so it was just to put in.

I see that the problem is fixed... Did you try unplugging the sensors and reattaching them after pumping out the contaminants...I want to believe that the old canister is still good... The filter might be bad... What is the going rate on a replacement canister

Yes followed all the instructions. To verify i spoke with a Toyota technician.
And yes I did change the filter .

Apparently there are 2 sensors

The top one measures a pressure differential
When it is too high means the filter is clogged and the light stays on until the filter is changed and a reset done . This has a procedure which is on the internet

The bottom sensor tests for water which because it is heavier than diesel sinks to the bottom of the canister

This will case the float to rise setting on the flashing light

Once the water is pumped out the light will go off . No need to do a reset.

My problem was that sensor which was detecting water when there was none

One I changed the canister the light stopped blinking

the sensor at the bottom doesnt usually go bad, with a diesel filter change i usually wash it with soap and mount it right back up, ensure its moving freely. But glad to see you got thru.

How often do you all replace the fuel filter? The filter assembled is so cheaply made in the Hilux I do not like it at all.

I shut down already for clogged filter so I change regularly for myself. I also drain regularly. Bought a tube so it is not messy to do also I use treatments regularly . Used to smoke on startup but no smoke at all since I started to do these things

Change filter when I'm indicated to do so... Either by the engine cutting or dashboard light. Every oil change I drain the sedimentor... Shortest fuel filter lasted was 12000kms when a batch a bad diesel was in circulation.

the company changes the filter every 10k
but it is recommended to at least wash out the canister every oil change(5k)
apart from water, there is often slimy sludge

A friend bought a Sakura fuel filter to change out in their Hilux. When I took out the old one and put in the new one, the fuel filter assembly couldn't screw back. I was wah madness is this. Then I notice the new filter and old filter top looked different. What really happen was the top of the old filter broke and remained inside the cap.
I change fuel filter every two oil changes and pour some liqui moly diesel purge and let it idle.

Need some advise here, washed the engine last night. This morning the gears would not go in when the engine starts, but would engage within engine off. What could it be clutch, releasing bearing, master or slave cylinder?
I think the engine wash may have noting to do with it but, the clutch and gears worked fine before.

Underwash once and clutch was making noise followed the clutch and found a place to grease which stopped the noise .

Get someone to watch below and see if the slave moving. If it is then. The master and the slave would be fine. If not well either of the two would be bad.
