Just a quick update while it's a bit embarrassing It happened.
I began to hear a snapping noise whenever I would accelerate while in low speed traffic and immediately release the pedal. Offcourse paranoia kicked in, so a called the firm to schedule a visit. They were very accommodating and got the Saturday bocked on short notice hats off to the M. Rampersad support staff.

Anyways after crying the sky was falling the senior mechanic took a test drive with me and in 10 minutes came back and told me the jack was lose and would rock back and forth. As he said that it made sense as I took out the jack to use the screw driver in the office and replaced it in a hurry as rain was falling.

Total worthless on my end. As that should have been the first thing to check from past experience, but assumed the worst.


Hey I'm considering this new 2.8L unit. How is yours performing thus far?

So far I am enjoying it. First comment I get from anyone sitting in it for the first time is "I cud feel the power". Power mode really makes a difference.

Light off road driving nothing to really put it to the test just yet.

If you think about it, Toyota has a reputation for making durable vehicles that stand up to 3rd world conditions better than other brands, so basically one should have assumed from day one that it was a lie to sell their old engines.

My brother uses 50/50 diesel and pitch oil in his 2007 Hilux and he has never had to fix anything even after 11 years just oil and tires. Toyotas are very durable

The plus side of foreign diesel is low sulphur diesel

I wonder if the oil will turn black as quickly?

Well i think you should be safer with extended oil change using ULSD, i does change oil at 10000km and even with this diesel it works good

I could speak for myself. My family recently expanded and needed to get a house.

Either I continue paying a loan that kept me from getting mortgage or sell the van at my displeasure and get my ducks in a row.

Revo will always be the most reliable and fun go anywhere i want vehicle I have ever owned. Hope I can get another sometime in the future
