After years of faultless service our old truck which was a Hi-Lux pick up truck mk2 , with big wheels and a 7 inch lift all round finaly became far too rusty to repair further.
So not being able to afford a new one and not knowing exactly what a heap of shit the 2.4 import model was ,we bought a Surf . You would think its just a Hi-Lux thats got a solid rear end ,but no...it has every sensor known to mankind and more stick on bits that are also electric than a bloody robot :rolleyes: More hoses than the bloody Fire Service :angry:
We have stripped out the air con put in a new radiator , uncountable amounts of hose , ball joints, steering arm idler joints , the speedo has packed in but its not one sensor but 2 and which one is it? so we use a sat nav for a speedo
Confuseingly we thought we had fixed the sudden and quite horrid diesel leak that occoured tuesday...nope it gushed out this morning , doesent do it hot but does it cold , this aparently is due to veg oil being put in diesel now , it shrinks the seals in the fuel pump ...aparently a cure for it temp is to put an amount of transmission oil in the diesel , this swells the seals back up :huh:
I seem to remember when people made home made veggie oil diesel they had to change all thier seals , bloke over the road was doing that and every time his motor went buy it smelt like a chip shop !
Apart from the problems with getting insurance which isnt realy that bad ,if i could feed it poison mushrooms i would tho it would seem that its gonna die quite happily without my help ..
If yer ever tempted as we were by good past experiences with Toyota , let this be a warning lmao
It is as well that I do not work as i would never get there , Garry having to take my little Rav every time that big fat old bitch gets sick :angry:
Please note this is not a rant :cool: Tho if it does not stop raining i might do one on the rain lmfao
