Used Toyota Land Cruiser review: 1990-2011
Toyota's LandCruiser is a genuine 4WD, not just a people mover dressed up to look tough, but which is nothing more than a car underneath that supposedly rugged body. Highly capable off-road, the big ...Read More
Toyota LandCruiser: safety features faulty on second hand model
Warning lights are not usually checked on cars prior to sale, but I would expect a dealer would repair the fault when it was pointed out to him.
Toyota LandCruiser: dual fuel malfunction
Backfiring in a vehicle running on LPG is usually a result of the air-gas mixture igniting in the intake manifold, and it's usually caused by a problem with the spark plug leads. In your case it would appear that an explosion has taken place in the crankcase, probably caused by a combustible mixture igniting. You need to have someone investigate then reason such a mixture might be present in the crankcase.
Nissan Patrol 2004: Is petrol or diesel better?
You’re buying a high mileage car so be careful to check the condition of the engine and driveline and walk away if there’s any suspicion they’re close to worn out. There’s little difference between the Landcruiser and the Patrol, but avoid the 3.0-litre turbo diesel Patrol as it has engine issues.
Ask Smithy Xtra LPG conversion for Land Cruiser
The Tartarini system is a well-known and respected brand, made in Italy like just about every LPG system is. If you have got a dose of contaminated LPG the system could be gummed up with an oily residue, but you should be able to clean it out. Rather than replace the system I would strongly recommend that you try to fix your problems. Your first stop should be to the installer, if that doesn’t produce a satisfactory solution then go to the system provider and seek their assistance. In your case it’s Global Autogas Supplies (1800 620 945).
Toyota LandCruiser: known issues with aftermarket performance chip
CARMAKERS tune their cars to suit the average motorist and they also leave a safety margin with their tuning so they can be confident they won't have problems once their cars go into production. Tuners can tune more precisely to achieve a desired outcome, be it more power, torque or fuel economy, and they can play within the manufacturer's safety margin. By some fine-tuning they can extract more power and torque than a manufacturer would dare do. That means you're running closer to the edge when you install a chip, but that doesn't mean you will have a problem. Your best course of action is to choose a chip maker with a long-established, good reputation for doing reliable work, and perhaps with some sort of warranty. Then ask to speak to other owners who have had the same chip fitted to their cars.

Toyota LandCruiser: hopping before warming up
I WOULDN'T expect the hopping problem to be fixed by replacing the clutch, but it may fix the problem with first and reverse gears. It sounds as if the clutch is not fully disengaging, which may mean it is worn. If you haven't replaced the clutch before, it could be due for replacement and I would take the advice you have been given.
