Re: Fan speed resistor failures

Tailwheel
I went and corrected the spelling in places. It was typed on a pad which inserts it's own word instead of what I wanted. My Proof reading skills to be upgraded, it seems.

Re: Fan speed resistor failures

Tailwheel. Nearly all reasons the fan resistor burns or gets too hot in any vehicle system is because the motor bearings are DRY and nearly Seized and require lubrication. OR the fan is restricted to easily turn by Dust buildup or leaves or dead mouse etc. That WILL be the cause for restricting or r...

Re: Isuzu 2016 A/C Problem

If the aircon evaporator was replaced under warranty in Nov 2020 it is less than 2 years old, and seeing the original warranty period is 5 years or more, it follows that the replaced but now failed evap and work to replace it again, is still under warranty. Unless there is a bracket to hold any move...

Re: A/C backlight

Best to work out if they are "globes" or LED's" because. As Mike says, one isn't polarity sensitive and the other IS. Did you test the faulty one with 12v current/voltage both ways to check it? Diodes which are claimed to be good for 50,000hrs CAN be faulty after a few hours of use.

Re: Vent valve, PCV valve

Travis. The engine doesn't have a PCV valve, only positive ventilation and just breathes in crankcase blowby gasses. The catch can if full, will/should simply deliver any additional oily stuff to the engine via turbo when full of oil.. There should not be much pressure in the catch can at any time, ...

Re: changing radiator and heater hoses and alternator belt timeline.

G'day Josh Different year vehicles will have different quality/lasting rubber parts this is a well known fact. Everyone sees things differently of course, but my 2011 still has the original hoses and belts but a few more KMs on it. Now in their 12th year. A remove and inspect is good to do on multir...

Re: free wheeling hubs mistake

Arrow Your statement is a bit gobbledygook of read. You said you "lock in FWH after I finished". Your lack of punctuation is misleading and not revealing the reality of the jntended. It is not revealing what you really did. However, after trying to sort out what you mean, I presume you had them IN D...

Re: Banging from LHS front end

Garry You probably can't change struts, side to side because brake hose brackets may be opposite etc. By the look of that body mount the amount of off line present will be making the internals quite possibly touching the chassis and body at the same time. Are they all like that or is it simply poorl...
