Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 2005 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 2005 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Toyota LandCruiser Prado 2005: Do I need a new turbo?

    I doubt that you have a turbo problem, but you need to have a mechanic check to be sure. A mechanic would be able to find the cause of your problem and fix it.

  • Prado GXL engine failure

    There is always a risk when buying a used car, particularly one as old as yours and having done so many kilometres that something could go wrong with it. You really have no protection under the law; you can only hope that the dealer looks on at your predicament favourably.

    One thing you might care to explore is the possibility that the engine failed due to the oil pickup becoming blocked with an accumulation of carbon deposits and starving the engine of oil.

    There were a number of instances of this problem happening on the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engine in the HiLux and LandCruiser. The failure of yours appears very similar to the earlier failures reported in the HiLux, but proving that this was the cause of your problem would be difficult, time consuming, and stressful.

  • Toyota Prado: Poor battery life

    The quality of new-car batteries does seem to be falling but it’s more about car makers trying to save money. In my experience a quality charger, like the C-Tek one I use for my Toyota HiLux, helps by keeping the battery in the best possible condition for a vehicle that’s not in regular use.

  • Toyota Prado: Buying for age or mileage?

    In this case I would be tempted to go for the older car with the fewer kilometres, as long as you were sure the odometer reading is correct.
