Re: Temperature Gauge Fluxuation

The turbo vane controller uses vacuum to alter the angle of vanes in the exhaust ring inside the turbo outer case. It directs more or less so more or less boost is created when there is sufficient hot exhaust gas exiting the engine. IF, the vane control chamber is dodgy,(read diaphram cracked or hol...

Re: Temperature Gauge Fluxuation

I would remove and clean EVERY earthing points where the LOOM wiring (usually ) black has to be connected to the body. Also look/investigate if any body to chassis and battery negative connections are loose, dirty, or been left off and unattached to their original earthing points. I have added addit...

Re: Disabling the Auto Power Window

Mark. I presume the operation is same as previous shape Dmax. My 2011 has 2, yes two operational ways of working. If you Push down or pull up Firmly, it enters full cycle mode and goes full extent where it is switched off at the end by an inbuikt electronic cutoff system. However, if you "GENTLY" Pu...

Re: Fuel consumption...yikes!!

With an MUX you are better off than with a Dmax as the axle to ball measurement is less, Inherent stability increase I think. Having a Jayco with 170+ kg on the ball seems far too much. Just how much downward increase on the rear tyres do you have to have to optimize the grip?( Many caravans are stu...

Re: Fuel consumption...yikes!!

Sundowner 2 Yes the Pajero, while a nice comfortable vehicle can't tow much legally. I wonder if that is because it has no chassis and no basic inherent strength. The independent rear is also a concern as it splays when loaded and unless correction of some nature is applied then it bums down. The MU...

Re: Fuel consumption...yikes!!

Sundowner2 I do not have an Mux but tow with a early Dmax. towing nearly 2 ton the fuel consumption is around 12 to 14 depending on what the conditions are. Mine has some economy loss with injectors which will require replacing sometime soon. The Mux are almost universally reported as being the most...

Re: Isuzu DMax MUX body & inner guard crack

Garrytre The signing of the "shut up and we will fix it" paper is pretty well standard practice from companies wishing to limit the spread of word of mouth about an issue. Nissan did it with the TWISTED from NEW D40 Navara's of which many many were sold throughout Australia. In Nissan's case, Austra...

Re: Isuzu DMax MUX body & inner guard crack

Goody. Having a look like you did is good hear of. You are the only person I know of who has decided to check like that. Commendable. Gives a sense of knowing what is what I reckon. You have made me wonder if it is more likely to be a problem on longer bodies, ie, not single or Extra but dual cab an...

Re: Isuzu DMax MUX body & inner guard crack

Goody Did you closely inspect the relative compression of all upper and lower rubbers while tight the bolt is tight. Any sleeve divider/tube/load bearing tube, inside which proportionately distributes load to the mounts may be pulled one way from a neutral central position and inducing a stress by h...

Re: Head gasket issues 2013 dmax

G'day Garrytre You are sounding a bit like me, I read your reply and it seems logic is not what any company wants to hear from their buyers, the, DO as we say concept, is usually the way and they can hide their mistakes in vehicles manuals and workshop practices. All companies are in it for the mone...
