Have 2003 hilux 3L 5L blowing black smoke on startup and under load. Getting only 6-7km per litre. Have replaced fuel/air filters injectors injector pump at a cost of over $3000 still no change (not happy) any suggestions? thanks

Replacing the injectors should have fixed the problem, as black smoke is usually caused by fuel not being burned properly (Blue smoke indicates piston ring wear.) My 2008 HiLux has done 380,000 kms and does not blow much smoke at all, but I have serviced it regularly, and rarely drive it over 100 km/hr. Are you sure your mechanic actually replaced all that he said he had - this sometimes happens - they say they have done work, and rely on the fact that if you are not mechanically minded, you will not know if they have or not. Have a look at the injectors - do they look new. Also, check your fuel pump - it may have contaminated fuel - it should be quite easy to drain it to check for contaminants. There is probably a UTube showing exactly how to do it.
Also, if if was a workshop you are not familiar with, ask another shop to check the work.

Thanks for that...will take it elsewhere for a work check

Hi,

It would depend on the seat rails / mountings on the floor being in the correct position. A toyota wrecker would be able to tell you.

Possibly air in the line somewhere, crack the injectors one at a time and pump the fuel pump to see if there is air in the lines. check the fuel pump for air as well, possible loose nut somewhere sucking air.

Hi - I have a recurring issue with my 2003 hilux, the engine light comes on and it loses power. Troubleshooting has identified that the filter is low on fuel and requires manual pumping to prime it - this clears the engine light and it runs good for a while. After runs, I check and have to prime the filter - my suspicion is that it is the fuel pump, but would like to know how best to troubleshoot before removing and replacing the pump as I dont want to replace it, only to find it is in ok working condition...
