My name is Jude. I manage a fleet of about 300 units of MIT L200 2x4 new pick ups.Getting to years by August 2017.I have been having engine knocks for like 8 vans.What could be the possible cause of this knocking.
Injector seals are known to be problematic, when they leak they give a knock or sound like pressure leaking from inside the cylinder. If so the seals need recut and new copper sealing washers fitted. Also check the crankshaft pulley on each affected vehicle for wear / delamination and breaking up. Hugh from City of Glasgow

my 4x4 warning light is flashing all the time on warrior it goes in and out of four wheel ok
One of the switches on the 4wd system is corroded. Try exercising the selector back and forth through it's 3 positions with the engine running and in neutral. If 4wd is working, then the solenoids, actuators and the vacuum would appear to be ok, so most likely to be a switch. Paul from Cambridgeshire

Whilst changing my rear fog light bulb it came apart, there was a small spark (this dumbass left the power on) I replaced my bulb all working fine however now I can't turn my side and rear lights off. The only way I can do this is by pulling the fuse in the engine compartment. Could I have blown a relay some where? Any help fixing this would be greatly appreciated

Iv'e got a trojan L200. It's leaking diesel when running and standing still not running. I can see it dripping from under the fuel tank along the tank ridges. I suspect it's not the tank but a fuel pipe or seal leaking ? I'm no mechanic etc hence I'm not sure, but the leak is continuous. Any help much appreciated please guys. ( The fuel gauge is very slowly going down as a result of the leak ! )

Hello, Re post June19 2016 re snapped timing belt I have since replaced the timing belt, tensioner and tensioner bolt as well as the rockers that were broken. Unfortunately the vehicle still would not start. When "doped" it would idle until the fuel goes. Subsequent diagnostic test indicated "no pressure l pump", yet I am told that a injector pump should not malfunction so easily. Is there anything else that can be done/checked before I invest in such an expensive pump. Thanks.
