I did the tranny flush, drain the sump, pour fresh oil, removed the return hose from the radiator to the tranny and placed in a bucket, started the engine with tranny in neutral. When I saw fresh oil coming I stopped and filling the sump again. It took just under 8 quarts.
I read about this method but I ended up dumping from the sump instead..just about 4 qts. So I'll drain again in about two weeks and replace the amount that I took out and I should be good.
I would replace the diff oils and fuel and are filter after passing through the flood waters. I would not remove the fuel tank....would not trouble trouble. Is there an opening under the seats? If there is one may be you can open the drain and flush from the top?
Got through with the back diff..not the the TC though, the hex fill bolt was slightly rounded so I don't know if the previous owner changed the fluid and messed it up..the colour was nasty though. Flushed the PS as well.
Did you change the thermostat yet?
Yes I changed the thermostat last year when I changed the timing belt and associated components, but the idiots didn't put back a gasket on the thermostat housing so I cut and made one for myself and apparently they torqued the nut too much because the stud (on the right side) has half LH threading and half RH, with one part to screw into the block and lock, with the opposing side to screw down the nut to hold down the thermostat housing, but the hole on the block has been widened too much through overtightening so there's a slight leak of coolant. I'll have to go by a welder to let them put a weld under the stud to lock it and weld a new nut onto the damaged TC fill bolt.

Yea boi, always slacking the fill bolt first, I doh know y they couldn't put a regular flicking bolt, than that hex. Same sheit with the MAF, is torque security, put a dam Phillip head screw like everybody else.
My mechanic a time had tried the bottle purge from the line of the HP pump. It didn't work, I am guessing it could be because of the common rail system and requires pressure to work. So it might be like how the injector cleaner system works for gas maybe.

Massy have it for $150 for one earlier this year when I call.
Yea diesel does come out when the seal going.

Two major contributors are either my rings are bad or I have a leaking injector, so I want to do a compression test to start the troubleshooting process. Does anyone know a reasonable place in south that does compression tests on diesel engines? I found out VMCOTT does them at $250. Anywhere else?

Woi, at what point you loosing oil? I would get a drop in oil at about 6,000km after the oil change. I would just top up and change oil every 8,000km. I was told I had some compression loss (diagnosing my hard start issue), but never black smoke, yet clocking 160km on the highway still.
