Re: Zerubabel

Graham Are you referring to your Petrol Patrol or your Diesel? Something seriously wrong if its Petrol so I am sure you are speaking of your Diesel? On the topic of consumption, mine being super-charged, I am getting 6.5 to 7.0 average if I keep under 160, around 150 indicated is a happy compromise ...

Re: First Impressions 4.8 with turbo

Re: First Impressions 4.8 with turbo

There is a long lowish uphill on my way home on the N1, the one from the south and exiting at William Nicol, driving at 100 I can just lower my right foot and it pulls like a truck, no gearing down it just pulls. Ian, does your Patrol manage to do this with the gearbox staying locked up? It seems my...

Re: First Impressions 4.8 with turbo

Hi Ian Very nice figures on your Patrol. Will be fantastic Tow vehicle for sure. Amazing torque low down, at the exact rpm one would be towing. As a comparison, to mine which is Super-Charged, your figures are better all the way to 4000 Rpm for both Torque and Power. I would be interested in how the...

Re: 4.8 Automatic gearbox fluid change

When I did mine I asked ZF Transmissions Meadowdale to do it.

I supplied the oil.

They have a machine that will flush 99 % of the old oil out.
It works on a bladder system as far as I recall and replaces exactly what was sucked out.

Might be an option for others

It certainly simplifies the process

Re: Knock sensor code 0325 and overfueling

Hi Steve I chatted to Steven Green and your theory is in fact correct. It is over fueling because of the knock sensor and the fault is directly related to the sensor. Knock sensor will severely retard timing. According to Steven either electrical (BAD CONNECTION/FAULTY WIRING) or mechanical fault wi...
