Good point Luke .... apparently the propshafts were worked on. (Luke is referring to phasing of the universals).
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Thanks everybody for he responses so far. The Fortuner still has standard suspension. How would I go about to check the phasing of the universals?
Driving around a bit with it, it does feel like it has improved slightly, but like Andy sais, I'm not sure i have heard of a shudder that got better over time.
If i stand still and release the clutch without the car moving, there s nothing that feels funny, no shudder. Only when the car starts moving does it start shuddering..
So the universals sounds like a option to look at.

Make sure all your shafts look like this or they'll give you problems.[IMG]//uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201704 ... 3c6c55.jpg[/IMG]

This is what they looked like when I got them back from propshaft guys. They look correct to me. Even have the pyltjies and everything.

I must also add, it does feel like it is getting slightly better, so I'm gonna give it a week or 2 and then see what it is like. Maybe its just my mind playing on me. I think best way would be to take in traffic next week and see what it does.
Thanks again for all the replies.

They look ok, maybe they haven't been balanced properly.

If they are not balanced, would I not feel it at a certain speed as well? There is no vibrations at all at any speed.
Think everything is pointing to the flywheel... it is such a small shudder.. but it is very irritating when you do feel it.
Will have to take gearbox out sometime again :cry: :cry: and get the flywheel skimmed again, or maybe a new one, anybody know the price of new one?

Just drive it for a while before you pull the gearbox again. You will quickly notice if it is getting worse.

Hi, hoop een van julle kan my advies gee!
Ek het so 3 maande terug my tuna se clutch vervang alles werk mooi ens, 2 weeke later sukkel dit om in revers gear in te gaan en wil dan nie in 1ste gaan nie en moet dit vorseer.
Dit gebeur elke oggend en as ek n entjie gery het wissel die ratte beter maar dit sukkel maar nog. Sondag het ek die gearbox olie vervang met Castrol 75w-90 GL4, dit het nie veel gehelp nie.

Voel die koppelaar snaaks of anders as jy hom trap? Word dit enigsins beter as jy die koppelaar pomp? Gaan die ratte makliker in as die voertuig afgesluit is?

My eerste gedagte is dat die koppelaar nie mooi los nie. Dit is gewoonlik wanneer die kar nie in eerste rat en in trurat wil ingaan nie want die die voertuig staan stil maar die ratkas hou aan draai selfs al trap jy die koppelaar so die ratte wil nie inskakel (engage) nie.

Dalk het die master cylinder skade gekry toe die ou koppelaar op pad uit was. Dalk moet jy net die stelsel goed bloei want hy sal dit ook doen as daar lug in die stelsel is.

Hi Mars,
Waneer die die kar af is gaan die ratte maklik in en uit, dit voel snaaks as ek ratte wissel as of die koppelaar bietjie vas sit of so iets.

AS die ratte maklik ingaan as die enjin af is dan is dit die kopppelaar wat nie behoorlik los nie. Ek dink die probleem lê aan die hidrolise kant. Bloei hom eers en as dit nie werk nie begin jy kyk na die Master en die Slave silinders. Die kans dat die master probleme gee is baie groter as die slave so kyk eerste na hom as die bloei nie werk nie.

Verloor die voertuig remvloeistof?

Dankie, ek sal dit eers bloei dan en dan vandaar af vat verder. Weet jy wat die specs is vir die "free play" op die koppelaar pedaal, voel as dit baie laag gestel is.

Daar is twee goed wat jy kan stel op die koppelaar pedaal. Die een is die skroefie wat die pedaal se terugwaartse beweging stop. M.a.w. die hoogte wat die pedaal op stop. Ek is nie presies seker nie maar ek sal vanaand kyk in die handleiding wat ek het. Ek dink hy moet basies gelyk wees met die rem pedaal. As hy laer as dit is moet jy definitief die skroefie indraai dat hy hoër sit want as hy te laag sit dan gaan hy nie die slave silinder vêr genoeg druk om die koppelaar te laat los nie. Die "free play" kan jy stel deur die lengte van die stafie te stel wat aan die pedaal vas is van die master silinder af. Ek het hom gestel dat hy so 1mm beweeg voordat die stafie aan die piston in die silinder raak. Dit is maklik om met die hand te voel wanneer die stafie aan die piston raak. As hy te veel "free play" het gaan hy ook nie die slave silinder vêr genoeg druk nie.
