Re: Hilux KZTE low on power

Polarbear2008, I would disagree with the pump timing. Pump timing runs on gears direct from crankshaft. Its only the camshaft running on the timing belt. Hennie not to start a slug match but mine looks like the attached photo. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171226/352044fc48652a06f23e4b2c9b3420...

Re: Kzte cuts out on deceleration

Look at all the plugs around the diesel pump. It is possibly a lose connection or worn cable around there. At least that is where I would start as the ecu has a hand in the running of the diesel pump on the kz.
