so a couple of things:
Mileage on the vehicle?
Is the vehicle regularly serviced and at what intervals?
Is the oil level proper?/when last have you had an oil change?
Do you notice any smoke when idling or when the vehicle is making the noise you describe?
Do you hear the noise when the vehicle is under load when cold (like accelerating) or do you hear it when idling?
how long has this been happening/how long have you noticed this for?

It could be injectors; and this just might be a normal diesel trait...but we don't have any info on your van to work with except what was said :wink:

Try using red line for a few fill ups
My van used to be real loud on startup so much so the neighbours asked if it was a tractor.
Since I started using Injector cleaners very very quite

So mileage is 95000K
Vehicle is serviced approx every 5000K
Oil level is at max, oil changed last week
No smoke when idling or when making noise
Noise is heard ESPECIALLY when vehicle is COLD and accelerating, very lightly when idling
Has been happening approx 6 months now.

Tried diesel purge as well as Prestone injector cleaner but no improvement.

You should give the redline 85plus a try or Amsoil Cetane Booster (Not sure if they had a combination product)

It is strange that you should mention a 6 month time frame cause it sounds like just about the time fuel started being imported :)

Really hope you get through cause it starting to sound more like fuel/injectors (not that the injectors are bad but they are being used)

Good day ppl,

Looking at buying a used D40. Can anyone share some insight in terms of maintenance and problems associated with this model? Looking at the 4wd automatic model.

Thanks

By chance u using a diesel treatment? If so, what brand? I've personally experienced a particular brand does cause boost sensor error code to show up.

No treatment but solved the issue, the sensor needed some cleaning, it works fine after some contact cleaner spraying.

When opening the coolant reservoir first and then the actual radiator is it normal to see inside by the radiator completely dry, the fins inside and all with the car cool . Is it possible that the hose from the overflow bottle ever blocks ?

Your radiator and cooling circuit should be purged of air.

Fellas this is a long thread.
Sold my l200 recently and jumping back into the 4wd game.
Getting a good price on a bone stock Navara 2013, one owner, low mileage @ just below 120k kms.

Anything I should look out for?
So far the vehicle appears to be in excellent condition.
Brake pedal feels a little soft, but that's the only thing I picked up in my short test drive.

My mech will be giving it a proper go-over before I buy.

see if u can find out about the 4x4 engagement part. i once got a drive with some one to check out some land at it was giving them trouble. i not sure if its an issue, but u can find out.

my frontier has the same hieght, but a lot more ground clearance, so u could look into the lift kits.
the frontier has skid plates for the front of the vehicle for the front diff and for the gas tank. it came wtih zbart(sp) to protect the underparts. all the ports, like for the shifter and cables, and steering are protected wtih rubber sheet pass throughs so water doesnt come in. not just insulation, but actual water proofing. i once waded through water up to the headlights, and started to float the the rear tires.

so u could check out thjngs like that for the water wading, and ground fouling.

Hello All,

I did a conversion recently on a D22 Frontier, from YD25 to QD32, I have some minor things to finish.

One of which is the AC System, I got the lines made and connect to the QD32 Compressor.

The issue is that the Switch in the Van does not send power to the Compressor, No voltage is sent to the Relay.

If you connect power directly to the Compressor it works. I had no issues with it before I did the Conversion.

I am thinking that the ECU is not seeing any RPM and therefore is not sending any signal to the Relays.
I am also looking at the Pressure switch for the AC.

Anyone got the D22 to read RPM Signal from the QD32 engine?

Thanks for any assistance.

Anyone ever had trouble with the d40 turbo boost solenoid. I know it supposed to be pulsing but mines sending vacuum to the actuator all the time (boost all the time). Its not stuck cause i replaced it with a new one, and still doing the same thing.

Fastrac most likely will have it, here's a number for them 317-5166. You can also buy it from Amazon I believe it's about 200 US plus shipping for the pair.
