My hilux is having a delay when i accelerate aggressively before it picks up. This never happened before. Any ideas why?

Many grey market vigos came with an exhaust gas recirculation system. This is required in countries with emission control regulations. The system actually send some of the exhaust gas back into the engine chamber to burn off some of the noxious chemicals. The problem is that there is increased carbon deposits in the engine, which over time can build up to levels that cause reduced performance, poor idling and poor acceleration. Coupled with our poor diesel, well, the problem could be compounded.
The vehicles from TTTL did not have this system because T&T has no such emission control regulations. So these just spew out fumes but the engine was a lot cleaner over time as no exhaust gas was introduced to build up the carbon.
This can be one issue.
Another could be a fouled fuel system.
Yet another issue could be the injectors need servicing or worst case the rails need to be replaced.
And it could be none of those too.
A scan with the Toyota techstream software will pick up the issues.... I am not sure about other diagnostic software, but techstream will run the system checks to identify the sources and the issues.
Let us know what you eventually find out as it'll be good to learn and educate the masses with similar vehicles.

How are the DBA rotors working out in the Hilux? I'm organising to go that way week after next so some feedback would be nice as you should have had some run time on them.
carluva wrote:Good. That's encouraging. I'm gonna put on the DBA on but not using the OEM pads. Gonna put on aftermarket but I cant remember the name right now. Just need to get smtgh that does not warp.

-Mobil 1 Gear LS 75w90
-Valvoline 80w90 Gear oil Limited Slip and
-Total Quartz TM 80w90 (not limited slip)
cause I forgot the requirements and bought non limited slip gear oil and had to use what I had on my shelf. I now have extra quarts of total gear oil that I have to figure out how to use (Might look into using amsoil slip lock to make this oil viable in my rear diff next time)
Half a bottle of Power Service Diesel Kleen to handle injectors.
Greased the driveshafts as i had to wade through some water in El Socorro South this week.
Changed cabin air filter; don't leave it in there like myself for about 40000kms.
TOTAL Cost for 100000km service parts so far:
gear oil: $400
Fuel filter: $180
Fuel additive: $70
Cabin Filter: $200

The fluid didn't look too bad after 65000Kms, less metal debris on the magnets than the first time the fluid was changed; to be expected as the parts are now worn in. There were still some visibly reflective fine metal flakes (bronze coloured).
