Pajero a better choice

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Sep 2009

THE Jackaroo should be OK, but I'd look at a Pajero, which I think would be a better choice. As for the Falcon, the cars you are looking at have to be seen in isolation because of their age and kilometres. The Falcons are generally tough, but are known to have problems with radiators and head gaskets. At that number of kilometres I'd have the auto transmission carefully checked, particularly if you intend to tow.

'roo the day

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Feb 2008

IT'S not recommended that you convert the Jackaroo to LPG because the engine isn't really compatible. Holden had an LPG option available on the Rodeo with the Isuzu V6, but it proved troublesome. It was an Impco air-valve system and had many driveability problems. If you really want to convert to LPG, George Peake, of Victorian Autogas Supplies, recommends you take your car to a cylinder-head specialist and have the heads fitted with hardened valve seats and valves, then find an installer who will fit it with a generic injection system.
