There is no fuel pump at the tank. Fuel is drawn from each tank by the injection pump on the motor.

Hi I have a 2010 vdj79 ute and my steering is very stiff ! Have put a reco box in and still have free play and stiff steering. Any ideas?

do you have larger than standard wheels? what tyres and tyre pressure are you running? note these are a serious 4WD and as a result have steering dampeners in them so of course they have play.

Your power steering pump belt could be slipping or broken, pump oil low, power steering pump failed or an air lock in the system, is fluid returning to the fill tank, should be no free play.

Fuel problem
I have a problem with my 2012 V8cruiser, it starts up first thing in the morning then 30/40 seconds stall, I prime the filter and get it going and then its all good for the rest of the day, I can drive it to work let it sit foe 12-13 hours and not a problem leave it over night and we go through the start again. I have replaced the filters check the fuel lines loosened the fuel cap all to no avail, I'm thinking electrical, any thoughts out there?

Same thing happened to me seemd fuel issue but it was battery.Try a new starting battery.Make sure you clear ECU, when battery is out turn ignition to start to remove all residue power.

My 2007 V8 Ute was doing the same thing. I fitted an electric lift pump to it an it fixed the problem.

I have a 2002 4.2 turbo land cruiser that comes up with infrequent engine light fault accelerator pedal switch. Had this replaced at quite a cost but problem still occurs. mainly when slowing at corner or when sitting at traffic lights. Easy to reset but not good when accelerate to get across traffic and it goes into crawl mode. Any advise would be really appreciated

hi there,

I have had this issue before, if you look at the owners manual you will see that this could be due to your input bearing shaft. I would contact whoever fixed this and ask them to advise why it has not been resolved.

Thanks for that, not sure why it comes up accelerator switch for if its the input bearing shaft but will ask the question

Hey guys, I have a 79 Series dual cab 2017 cruiser & I'm trying to work out how to set up my dual battery system in the car. Im thinking of putting a 3rd battery in the back where fridge will sit & Im wanting to use the Redarc BC/DC charger. Would anybody know if I need to keep the BC/DC charger where the 3rd battery is or can I put it under the bonnet where the 2nd battery will sit? Or would anybody have any better ideas??

From recent chats to people I gather that you can put them near the rear passengers, and it's better to have the bcdc system near the batteries? hope that helps.

These vehicles are well known for clutch slipping, if you get warranty it might be a good idea to put a heavier clutch in.
I would try for a new clutch under warranty, put a few dollars in to get a heavy duty one.

We own a 2007 LandCruiser Sahara (deisel) & to date it has been a wonderful vehicle. It has done 200k klm & has had nothing major go wrong with it. Recently it started to run a bit rough whilst idling & we took it straight to a Toyota Dealer, who has been great. We have now been informed that it has suffered 'dust damage' & repairs will cost $20k. Taking into account that this vehicle has never done off-road driving (we like them for the safety aspect), & from the tarred road to our driveway is a 300 metres of dirt road,

My question is, has anyone had anything similar happen?

I inherited my son's 1994 Landcruiser Diesel Ute. We do less than 5000klm annually. I believe that the recommended service interval is 10000klm or 6 months. Due to the low annual mileage and our financial position, I wonder what a reasonable time interval is? I understand that the engine oil breaks down, but is this use related or a time thing?

2 answers
Jeff

10000km no problems but always change the filter and oil at the same time

Roger
Roger

So, at 5000klm annually, it's ok to go 2 years between services.
