Toyota HiLux 2006 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota HiLux here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Toyota HiLux 2006: Injector seal leaks causes engine failure
If Toyota has agreed to help you out with the repairs I would stick with them and have the car repaired, but if they haven't you could approach the government consumer affairs people and ask their advice on what action you could take. You could also consult a solicitor and consider sending them a latter requesting they take action to resolve the issue.
Toyota HiLux 2006: New clutch only has one inch of clutch feel
I would expect the new clutch to take up within a short distance from the floor and once it has there is no “feel” as such. It sounds normal to me.
Toyota HiLux 2006: What are the best tyres?
The BFG tyre is regarded by the industry as one of the best of its type, but what you’re feeling is a characteristic of the type of tyre and not related to the brand. Any tyre of this type, with the large tread blocks, moves around and feels uncomfortable, but the movement reduces as the tyre wears and blocks wear down. They then feel better, which is why the half-worn tyres felt better when you put them on the rear. It would also feel better if you replaced all four tyres at the same time.
4wd thirsty on fuel
IT DEPENDS what you regard as incredibly thirsty. Four-wheel-drives tend to be thirsty. They're heavy and have to drag all that extra four-wheel-drive gear around, and the Rodeo's petrol V6 is a 3.5-litre unit. If fuel consumption is a key consideration for you, try a diesel. Fuel consumption will be much lower, and you won't lose too much performance.
