Re: Pyrometer

Ek is nuuskierig, het jy toe een gekry? Self al rondgekyk en die Madman lyk na die antwoord. Jy koop die guage en voeg dan die senders (sensors) by soos en wanneer nodig. Daar is bv sender units vir EGT, water vlak, water temp ens. Check madman.co.za en ek weet SAC doen al lank installasies.

Re: Hilux gloeilampe

Hi Mars, die plug se kontakte het 'n klein bietjie smeermiddel (iets soos silikon ghries) op wat verhoed dat dit roes of aanpak. Ek sal kyk of Hella/Osram beter werk en laat weet.

Hilux gloeilampe

Dagsê ! Ek het hulp nodig. My Hilux se gloeilampe blaas teen 'n tempo van een elke drie weke. Dis altyd aan die linkerkant en net die dim gedeelte van die hoofligte. Ek koop gewoonlik maar generiese gloeilampe by Midas. Enige idees enigiemand ?

Hilux feels strange in 4wd

I am not sure if I should be concerned, but it was raining yesterday and I thought that I would drive in 4wd (heard one should do that from time to time). When driving forward it seems ok, but as soon as I reversed it felt as if the handbrake was on. Is this normal ?
Btw this is a 2011 3.0 D4D
