buy ah metal fuel filter and put it after the orignal filter, i does do that in work with vehicles that are suspected to some poor quality diesel. Usually change it out every 2-3 diesel filter changes. its a cheap insurance.

Of course the firm is rediculous. They are out of stock and its costing 5500 plus vat plus 4000 to ship it in. Don't know if thats a whole plane they hiring to ship it down or what but that doesn't make no sense. Any options to repair or anywhere I can check for same? ROC and all the places in the bamboo I called seems clueless about this.

What i think is the possibility of a failing/failed glow plug . When cold i get the problem slightly to start and once start it mis fires very slightly for a very short period. once warm, it works great. No problem accelerating of making rpm.What do u guys think. Also i read online a failing/failed single glow plug can cause slight hard starting and misfire only when cold.
Could be glow plugs.. see what smoke coming out.. while it idling n misfiring

How does the warranty at Ansa work?
Does someone have to service their vehicle there to maintain warranty?
Or can it be serviced outside, in accordance with the schedule?
A partner indicated Toyota honours the warranty when it's serviced outside once it's in schedule.

From searching, the consensus is 8.6 litres or just over 2.25 gallons, filter inclusive. Just some friendly advice though, do some research on the pump priming issue. Some people on the interwebs say it's 'old talk' but seeing a few Rangers with 1JZ conversions or the BT-50 with the RB25 conversion says otherwise.

That's the 3.2L capacity. And priming issue is mostly a problem with that spec, just don't leave it to sit draining. Work around is to change oil filter, Drain, then plug back right as it starting to drip.

I read online the 8.6L spec was for the 2.2L model as well, so I wasn't sure which it really was. Also heard of the oil pump priming issues for the 3.2 model. The recommendation is to not drain for longer than 10 minutes when doing a change.

I read it on the internet as well, but you can't believe everything you read online so, idk.

^^^ If I am not mistaken, I believe that's the clutch pulley. Around $400 by Faiz Marabella

Anybody ever had their traction control OFF light illuminate ever so randomly? I had to press the knob to turn it off. Wasn't passing in any bad surface nor at any significant speed
