Navara EGR valve

Another EGR valve problem today, this time – Nissan D40 Navara EGR  failure. We regularly see EGR issues with most modern diesel cars. EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) is a system that directs controlled exhaust gas back into the intake to be re burnt in the engine. This is done a specific times to lower pollution. […]

Ranger EGR cooler

Ford Ranger EGR cooler replacement has become a common repair. We have replaced quite a few and on all ranger models, none seem to be immune from this problem. Most are higher in milage and age. The EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system is designed to let metered amounts of exhaust gas back into the intake […]

Valve adjustment

As a part of the scheduled maintenance, Engine valve adjustment is required on some engines. Today we have a Mitsubishi Triton with a 4D56 diesel engine. The vehicle had very low power and was rattling. As this was a new client we didn’t have any history on previous maintenance. The valves sound well out of […]

D22 Navara clutch failure

Today we have a Nissan D22 Navara clutch failure to repair. This was a major failure of the clutch with the pressure plate clamping spring breaking off several fingers. As you can see in the main pic. This fault was easily diagnosed as a clutch failure prior to removal. The loud noises coming from the […]

Diesel fuel filter

The diesel fuel filter is a very important part of the fuel system. This is even more true with the advances in diesel fuel system technology. With todays modern diesels with common rail, high pressure fuel pumps, fine tolerance injectors the fuel filters role becomes even more critical. The main pic is of a Toyota […]

Shackle bushes

Shackle bushes are an item that are often overlooked during routine maintenance. Shackle bushes live in the leaf spring shackle, they are the bush that allows movement in the suspension. Every time you drive over a bump or turn a corner your suspension moves. This movement will eventually wear out the bush. During services these […]

BT50 HD leaf springs

Today we had a 2015 Mazda BT50 which of course you know is the same as the Ford Ranger. This dual cab ute is used by a tradesman who carts around his tools in the back. The original rear leaf suspension are not designed for constant load applications. Over time these leaf springs had sagged […]

Control arm bushes

A very common fault with many modern cars is the control arm bushes failing.  Mainly the front lower control arm bushes.  They are the bush that allows the vehicle’s suspension to move.  These are the pivot point for the suspension.  As they are always moving, eventually the rubber bush will wear out.  Which generally means […]
