Re: 3.0 TDI with erratic loss of boost

Hey Langman, sorry I have not responded, just not had time to play on the old pc for some time. My problem occurred overnight! We drove down to Ballito and spent a week there, then filled up with 50ppm at the local BP, and two hours later on the way down the coast to Transkei I suddenly felt the (li...

Re: Advice on suspension,tyres,dual battery system

Any reason why no-one has mentioned Ironman?? I fitted Ironman performance springs with gas shocks about 20000km's ago, and am finding the ride to be not bad at all, but then I have never felt what OME suspension feels like. Has anyone out there had the opportunity of experiencing both. The price wa...

Re: Noisy Suspension

Ek het so 'n jaar en 'n half gelede Ironman performance coils met gas shocks ingesit. Hoekom se jy foam cell en nie gas nie?? My Troll het om en by 125 000km op die standaard suspensie gery, en toe ek hom gekoop het, was hy op 118 000km so ek het nie baie met die "original suspension" gery. Die voor...

Loud "KLUNK" on max turning of steering.

My diesel 3.0 tdi grx has made this loud "KLUNK" sound every time I am moving forward and turn the wheel fully to either the left or right. Is it play on the front ball joints, and more importantly is it serious??

Re: Suspension

I fitted Ironman performance coils with gas shocks. The difference from when I bought the vehicle with original Nissan coils & shocks is amazing - but then she had sagged in front and was bottoming out. It would be great to feel the difference between the "cheaper" Ironman and the considerably more ...

Re: Which tyre is best

Thanks guys for the info, I have also recieved some feedback from a tyre dealer who does not recommend changing the tyre's profile, as the larger diameter, he says, will cause unnesscessary stress on all the suspension components - tie rods etc. as well as the steering mechanism. So that's put paid ...

Re: What you like about your Patrol!

It has evrerything a man could possibly want in a vehicle, the sheer size and macho image it portrays simply commands respect! She simply does everything I want her to, and won't back out of any obstacle in her path. The ride and cruiseability is superb and consumption is excellent for such a heavyw...

Which tyre is best

I will be looking at replacing rubber in the not too distant future, I purchased my vehicle with Michelin Synchrone 265 70 16's which I belive have been discontinued. So far I have narrowed my replacement tyres down to three makes ie: BFG; Cooper and Bridgestone. All terrains will be fine for my not...

Re: Clutch

I had no problems with my 30 TDI, also drove in low range both up and down in Jan 2009. Maybe a leak in the clutch master cylinder??

Re: 3.0 TDI with erratic loss of boost

Thanks Koos, for your very thorough response. At least this is not a major problem that will cause me sleepless nights, or leave me stranded on the side of the road. Nice to have this kind of support from fellow Patrol Manne! I bought my Patrol firstly because it has been the one vehicle that has ha...
