Hi Guys ,

I have a 96' Hilux 4x4.

The other day I was driving without water in the radiator and the bakkie died on me.

After about 10mins the engine could crank over again.

It has a 3000d (5L) engine in.

Now what to do :

1. Fix the engine ?
2.Fit a 3.0d4d (is it possible and how ? )
3.Lexus v8 and why rather than the d4d ?

I would prefer to keep the original gearbox to save some costs...on that point I don't have a big budget so ja...

Any help would be appretiated !

En ek is eintlik Afrikaans en nuut tot die groep as ek iets verkeerd doen asb sê.

Heinrich as jy d4d gaan het jy ems ens om oor te worry en die krag mag dalk te veel wees vir die ratkas?

Ek sou die kzte roete oorweeg met 'n meganiese diesel pomp.

Myne onlangs so gedoen en gellukkig sover.

@Baasvark kan jy my asb details gee van kostes en waar j dit gedoen het ens. Ek het kzte oorweeg ook maar di manne sê ek moet eerder kyk na d4d en ekt ook gehoor die d4d is 'n gesukkel met elektronika

@dd6 op die stadium staan hy maar net ekt hom weer probeer start deur bietjie water in die boonste pyp te gooi wat van radiator na engine gaan maar tevergeefs ...
Die engine draai net en ek is nie seker hoe is sy kompressie nie maar j kan jou hand gebruik om exhaust toe te druk as engine draai , hy stamp hom nie weg nie

strip motor normally heat size on one or two pistons so you can re bore and put new pistons or new sleaves you are still in for a bit of money.

Vir daai geld sit ek liewer 'n lexus 1UZ in - ratkas en diffs sal hom kan hanteer as jy nie te wild daarmme raak nie. 3.0 D4D is 'n goeie keuse maar enjin is duur om te koop, selfs 2de hand. Anderste sit 'n Ford 2.5 Wl motor in .... nie te duur nie, beter krag en verbruik as die ou 5 L en jy bly met diesel.

WL’s are good engines. My neighbour has a courier company and his Ranger with the WL had to be rebuilt now for the first time after 700k km. But they are getting scarce second hand. And expensive. Around R25k

Dan is Lexus die goedkoopste opsie, dan KZTE en D4D die duurste. D4d het redelik meer krag as KZTE en ook beter brandstof verbruik. As jy dit kan bekostig is die D4D jou beste opsie as jy by Toyota wil bly.

What about replacing with same engine.
Not sure about availability of those engines, but since they were not as popular, you may pick it up for cheaper.
Or even cheaper, get a 5L sub-assembly ??

Also , another option may be fong kong 4Y. You power will be about the same, but consumption... eish.
Not a diesel, but it goes back to the original engine makeup... or at least the closests... which could add value to your vehicle.
