Proud Bt-50 owner.. Purchased mine last year august... I started noticing a great difference in my acceleration from day compared to night.. I looked everywhere to try to source my problem... Eventually started hearing a screeling noise every time i accelerate. to i though it was the turbocharger backend gasket gone bad...Upon inspection i notices a hairline crack in my exhaust manifold just before the flange that bolts onto the turbo. Exhaust gasses were exiting there and that contributed to the loss of power.

i am having a little overheating problem, i bought my bt50 bout a week ago, the van is saying it doing 120k, but the engine is a foreign used, that was installed when the van was doing 103k, so need some advice, i saw the temp gauge going up about 3/4 on 2 different occasions so i pulled on the shoulder and took of the ac and rev the engine slightly and the temp gauge went back down.
So the next day i flush out the radiator and installed a new clutch fan, when i left the mechanic right after changing the fan the problem again (temp gauge went back up) so i was wondering if i needed to change the thermostat?
Could anyone shed some light on this situation please

check to see if ur primer pump is working and holding pressure.

i notice when i start in the morning i will get some rough idling and puffs of smoke.

but if i prime up the primer pump before starting on a morning, there will be no rough idling and less smoke.

Dont know why my bt50 primer pump loose the firmness

compared to my ln145 hilux.. never have to prime (only on filter change)

Did you do a thorough check of tue vehicle before you bought it?

Check to see if the vacum lines and switches for the actuator are place...these are located by the master Cylinder. ..a blue and white electrical connector with hoses. .also follow hoses to under vehicle and ensure they go into vthe actuator...actuator is a round metal thingy located on diff...

bt50. I Jus did a check wit the body an chassis an took a test drive an engaged the 4wd. Saw the axle light came on and the low range worked. I checked for backpressure, rough idle, excess smoke, Everyting seemed Ok. Today i took it back to the seller and his mech will sort it out. I had No idea abt the vacuum system, But i saw the connectors an hoses u were talkin abt.

Tru dipstick is blow by ( compression passing tru rings on upward stroke). tru oil filler cap and tap pit cover hose back to intake Mani is back pressure. U get some amt of air pressure but there will be a point when its too much and ur engine is "back pressuring"

Need to install an alarm in my 4x2 basic model 2007 bt50. Called a few alarm places who recommended powering the locks, any advice on this? Can someone recommend a good person for the job and good but inexpensive alarm system. I am installing a gps as well so trying to keep costs down. Thanks guys.
