My first question is, how did water enter the airbag module as they are sealed and secondly your MUX should still be under warranty so I would try this line first. Good luck

How many owners tow a 3 tonne van with theirs.
I’m not interested in figures on paper, they all sound impressive but l’d just like to know how well these things will haul a heavy van up a hill, they’ll all pull on one the flat stuff.

How many owners tow a van with theirs. Everybody makes theirs sound good on paper but heading up a hill with a load on is the only way to find out how good they really are and you can’t do this in a test drive at the dealers.

I tow a van with mine. I was not overly impressed with its capacity until the turbo was changed, it now tows a lot better and fuel economy is pretty fair. only issues I have is the springs are weak as water and the manual gearbox is crap (3 gearboxes in 20k and still no good) Dealers are a mob of blatant Liars as I asked about the springs and the girl at the counter said I have an aftermarket canopy which is overloading the springs. the canopy weighs 200kg and the carrying capacity of the vehicle is 850kg so I should be able to put 4 canopies on the back and not be overloaded. To top it off she did all this by sitting at her desk and peering out the window, she didn't need to weigh it as she was able to calculate this all by eye. (very clever). By the way Isuzu do not make canopies. They will tell you any crap to avoid warranty. With the gearbox according to the so called Rep from Isuzu, I have to count bananas between gear changes which causes real problems when taking off up a hill with the van on. Would not recommend Isuzu to anyone.

I have 2014 dmax it just started pushing coolant out the restank took off cap on radar and coolant still rising out any thoughts thanks

I would be checking that you haven’t a slight leak in the head gasket. Increased pressure will be coming from the leaking combustion gas entering the cooling system. Best way to beck is to get a test of coolant system. They simply use a Exhaust gas detection kit. Hope it isn’t that but.... best to have it checked to eliminate this possibility

You need to get it to a mechanic who has a diagnostic tester. Can be numerous things. Some minor some major. But dont ignore it as it could be something that could ruin your day and your wallet if left. Sorry i cant be any more help. https://www.dash-lights.com/isuzu/d-max-dashboard-warning-lights/

I would like to know when Isuzu will bring out a repair kit to stop the gears crunching in the 6 speed manual. I have taken several new cars for a test drive and they are all the same. Mine is on its 3rd gearbox plus 1 overhaul but they cant fix it. The Isuzu Rep (according to the service manager) claims that crunching is acceptable. Even the old FJ holdens didnt crunch when changing gears. this is disgusting and fraudulant.

Hi all,
I’ve recently spend 7 months working in a dusty environment and the Speedo/ tachometer display had dust in it. It seemed easy enough to pull out and clean, so I did, but now my tacho and speedo are not working correctly! Is there a way to rest these two or re-calibrate?

My experience from past tells me you have disrupted a small and unseen copper wire that is put there to stop people tampering with speedo readings, the only way i was told to fix it was to take it a dealer to have it repaired.
