    replied to Lost roller door remote
    Have you thoroughly checked under the seats? I have lost my phone many times - it slips down between the seat and the transmission tunnel, The only way I can find it is to get someone to ring it, and sure enough, there it is.... I have the remote for...

  • The coolant temperature is very high. I have never seen temps like that in my NW, even pulling my caravan up a very steep hill on a hot day. I would check the viscous coupling on the radiator fan as the first step.. I think that the ATF temperature is...

    "No gear release cord on the motor?" Yes - there is, but the door is so heavy (it is nearly 5 m wide) and I am so fraille these days that I would not be able to open the door by myself. My wife could help me but she was even worse than me...

  • The noise could be the folds of the rubber bellows on the outer CV rubbing against its neighbour. There should be no creaking noises with a CV. When worn, they make clacking noise at full lock. Creaking noise could be generated by slightly loose wheel...

  • The time taken to re-pressurise the petrol system is minimal. You would barely notice the changeover. In the bad old days (with carburettors and gas converters under the bonnet, at times you would be running both petrol and gas and the mixture would...

    You have lost your remote opener - the garage door won't open. A more common problem is when you have no electricity - you cannot get your car out of the garage. You really need an alternative access point to the garage. When you do finally get this...

  • If you are only doing 2 or 3 km runs, that means a lot of stop and start for the engine. Lots of use for the starter motor. Maybe that contributes to the short life of the starter motor? I would check the brushes and commutator to see how badly worn...

  • With my NL, I had the old type system of LPG (the converter and single hose into the manifold). I found the wiring going to the fuel pump in the left side kick panel under the glovebox and put a normally closed relay directly into the main 12 V power...

  • I have found a slightly different case with my setup. I have a manual transmission NW, and tow a 16.5 ft poptop caravan. Coming up Talbingo Mountain, a steep, winding climb, I found that if I selected 2nd gear, the engine would obviously rev more than...

    I think that the 3.5 L SOHC engine belts would all be the same (including the Magna belts). The 3.0 and 3.8 belts or the DOHC belts would be different. It would pay before you get too far in the replacement to count the number of teeth in the belts....

  • No - the drop is caused by either overheating, or (worse - much worse) by a blown head gasket. Since you are losing coolant as well, I lean towards the head gaskets as the cause, but if the coolant is going out the overflow bottle, it is the radiator...

  • Since the heading is Compressed Air Method, I assume that you intend to replace the seals without removing the heads. Good idea. The main problem is getting the collets out. My mechanic friend did this for me by placing a large ring spanned on top of...

    replied to Timing belt..
    Check the part numbers for both the NL and NM Pajeros. One good source would be Rockauto.com. they are in the USA and they call it a Montero over there, but if you check the part numbers for the 1998, 99 and 2000 models, and they are the same, you probably...

  • Craka: That is consistent with the viscous coupling being on the way out. Driving at highway speeds, even on a hot day, you will get enough cooling air through the radiator to keep things in check. Try going up a long hill, or towing a heavy load, or...

  • I am glad that the problem was resolved for rweller. I would never have picked a cam angle sensor allowing one lot of coils to fire but not the others. Regarding Lance's comments, I post possible solutions from time to time to try to help both the OP...

  • I agree with OJ (he is always right!) about resistance somewhere. It would pay you to remove the starter motor and check it out internally. The precious owner (or even the current one) may have had the car in water and some mud has gotten into the starter,...

  • This is a favourite topic about this time of the year. Check the viscous coupling - it is probably the cause of the issue, namely the fan not pulling enough air through the radiator core. There are plenty of posts on this topic. Basically, when the engine...

  • Well done. I cannot see how the cam angle sensor would let one set of coils fire but not the others but if it ain't broke, don't fix it.... As long as it is going, that is all that matters.

    replied to 6g72 heads
    Putting heads from a larger motor onto your 6G72 will result in lower compression. An old trick is to use the heads form a smaller engine onto a larger one and this gives you higher compression. Of course you have to be careful about pre-ignition then,...

  • The radiator cap has 2 seals in it. The main one which is readily visible is the one backed by the large spring. The seal lifts when the pressure in the cooling system gets above a certain level, and then the coolant flows into the overflow bottle. As...
