Mine was properly dirty after the last 30000kms, however in terms of time, the "19" meant that some years had passed before it was changed. My bad for tracking by mileage and not by time.

I was using a Fram fresh breeze filter with activated charcoal, which was purchased online. Recently installed a brand called Denkermann which isn't as dense and allows the blower to pull more air through it at the same settings which translates to more air blown into the cabin.

Yea
They do now
And the good part its, its multi vehicle
So that particular filter fits the vigo and revo hilux, almera/b15, suzuki vitara
And a lot of ppl think its oil based like the engine filter, its not, the filter refresher is a waterbased electrostatic enhancer.
So you can wash and refresh and install without completely drying the filter media.

PDA fortuner soon to be joining the house. It has less than 100,000kms on the clock (86000 I think). TTTL model diesel

Help me out a bit:
Is it a 1kd?
Any problems lurking in these?
Maintenance preferences?
Keep it or flip it for fast cash?

Yes
If its a local, it will be a 1kd-FTV

Problems: usual hilux type problems: warped rotors, fuel gauge, iffy brake lights, alternator pulley, a/c compressor, sweating on tappet cover gasket, EGR build up (if equipped)
But at that mileage/age, you wont have much issues

Maintenance: 15w40 oil of your choice, stick to original filters. In fact, use as much original parts as possible....

Keep or flip? : thats up to you, next ting yuh start driving it and like it...

What brand of tires?
Some cheaper tirss does be iffy with the pressures

Also
Take it for a suspension check

Sometimes little things like bad swaybar bushing and/or linkages does have it riding bad.

Or could be shocks on their way out...


Side note: if yuh doh like the van, drop it by me, i go take good care of it....

Well thats good tires dey

Yea, get a 2nd opinion

K&N is a nice investment IMO, plenty ppl does get issues, but most times its due to misuse (over-oiling)

Isn't it 29 psi... Not sure how much difference 1 psi can make though

Unsure if Michelin still makes the cross terrain SUV ht tyres... They were the most comfortable tyre I've ever come across.
The maxxis ht 750 or 770 are a close second.

I wouldn't recommend k&n engine air filters... But it is your van and your money. Just hold any k&n filter up to the light and you will see the problem.
