50k on a diesel is nothing, once properly maintained.
had mine for 5 years - going on 207k and works really good.
given my driving patterns and location, I change oil (amsoil full synth), oil filter, air filter and fuel filter every 10k.
It's a lovely vehicle tbh

My mind is really torn between the L200 and the NP300 - i think the L200 is superior in terms of ruggedness and durability but i could be wrong

To tell you the truth if you buying it new you won't even have to worry about parts so soon at all in the l200 sportero. But for the Nissan i had a padna missed one service on his Np which cost him 20k to fix. What i dont understand is resale value.

Parts are readily available for the L200 not that it's really needed I've had my Sportero for 7 years and so far no major issues I have only done normal servicing and changed recommended based on the service manual. To date suspension has no issues even though I do minor off roading with it. Only issue so far is the paint on the trim of the door handles inside have worn out.

the only bad thing is the timing belt and the balance shaft in these other than that, slap on a trans cooler on the earlier models, the new ones come with them already. excellent vehicle.

call 305-9900 he can service it, sometimes its just the o ring seal on it that needs to change
he would also be able to change it for you if it is the valve needs to change

i did both, change and repair the repair holding out real good. 50,000km and more so far

update on my side, switched to Schaeffers full synthetic oil and van was smoking badly after about 8000km on the oil

switched back to the Amsoil 15W-40 full synthetic

Also, was getting low voltages on my external voltmeter and battery light and fuel filter light flickering when driving. there was no performance difference in the vehicle.

cleaned and tightened battery pole clamps and issues solved

AllTrac wrote:did my bimonthly fuel filter change today, took some pics, here is the write up for those interested. Took me roughly about 15-20mins.
Make sure vehicle is off, get a 12 socket, flat head and filter wrench.
1) Remove both rubber fuel hoses
Image

Image

Image

expect some diesel spillage, keep a cloth close by.

2) Unplug the water sensor clips. The first white clip in the pic, i use a small flat head and gently press it down and pull the plug out, for the second black clip in the pics, its a lift type, so i gently lift the lever up and pull the plug out, dont lift or press to hard as they break easily.

Image

Image

Image

Image

3) Get your 12 socket or spanner and crack those 2 nuts on the housing the holds down the pump, then lift it out, the pump and the filter should come out completely.

Image

Image

4)Now those that are not refilling the new filter to the top with the Amsoil diesel concentrate, you should have a clean container to pour out the diesel fuel from the old filter to reuse in the new filter, I normally refill to the top with red line so i just tilt the return line a bit and drain out the old diesel fuel stored in the filter. When thats done, here comes the pain in the ass part. If you dont have a vice grip or something sturdy to hold the pump or filter you gonna catch royal ass to open the water seperator cover at the bottom and to unscrew the fuel filter from the fuel pump. First time with my first diesel vehicle, I didnt have a vice grip so I got my brother to hold on to it while i tried to unscrew it, we cursed and cried and ripped our skin and swore never to do this without the right tools, we finally got it open lol. My dad ran a flat head straight through the old filter and we unscrewed it like opening a tap lol. Its only difficult because mechanics use tools to tighten it and dont add oil plus most people change their diesel filters every 6 to 8 months so it kindda seizes. Anyway a month after I got a vice grip and it was smooth from there on out. Or do like my neighbor and screw it back down to a work bench and crack it open.

Image

Image

5) Now unscrew the filter from the fuel pump
Image

6) new filter time, pic below is the filter i have been using and some of the tools I use to unscrew the water separator and the fuel filter

Image

7) The new filter comes with a new replacement rubber ring for the water separator, remove the old one and replace with new, and screw it back into the new filter, hand tighten, put some muscle into it.

Image
Image

8) Next, my own procedure, no need to follow. I full it right up with only the best diesel concentrate money can buy, Amsoil baby :) others might prefer to refill with the diesel fuel you drained earlier from the old filter.
Image

9) Add some oil to the rubber ring seal, NOT A LOT, just a slight skim over the entire rubber. I just put like 2 drops from the cover and use my index finger to rub it around

Image

10) Finally screw on back the fuel pump (hand tighten), reinstall (2 12 nuts, white clip, black clip and 2 rubber hoses).
They start priming the pump (pumping, see second pic), I pump it till it gets hard, normally a little over 100 pumps, dont worry, it goes by quickly. Then start her up, might need to hold a slightly higher rev for a bit, no need to rev it out. Once the idle settles in, check your install for leaks. Thats it.

Image

Image

Image

Changing the Fuel filter on the triton is pretty easy and straight forward. Changing the filter on my hilux sr5 was a pain in the ass, so doing it bi monthly on the triton is barely a hassle for me.
a trick i learn from the mechanics .well mine is mazda bt50. but from watching your pics .it should work . empty d filter..leave it on d bracket. flip it over n screw back upside down with one screw n then loosen the filter ..that way . no one has to hold it for u

my new idea is .. i installed a backup inline filter.. d mazda have a strainer in d pump . i removed it for more free flow ..plus it does be a pain to take out n put back .. so i get double d protection for my injectors n pump
