My haice 2kd engine culdnt start easily & has much more black smoke

Answers

What mileage has your engine done and, most importantly, have you had it scanned for fault codes? It could be your exhaust gas recirculation valve sticking. The EGR valve can get choked up with carbon deposits and may stick open, allowing exhaust gases to be drawn into the inlet manifold which can cause poor starting and black smoke when running.

Hi, I have a 2,5 liters Hiace TD 4WD from 1998. Old guy, but still going strong except from a couple of minor details that made me give it a break some months. With summer coming I need it for the caravan, so here's my question: My sump tray is leaking oil. Anyone has changed this? I have tried to seal it without changing it, which was no succes. My friend is afraid we have to take out the engine to do this, but I hope it's possible without doing that. Anyone knows or have been through this? IM

Toyota Hi ace 2001 2.4 diesel this starts when cold but in hot weather if it is parked facing the sun it will not start and I have to wait for the sun to go down and the van to go cold again before it will restart please help.

Answers

Do you mean the engine will not turn over or it turns over but will not start? If it does not even turn over, it could be high resistance in the ignition switch and the associated wiring loom. When temperature inside the car climbs it makes the problem worse and the car will not start. If it turns over but will not start only when hot, Toyota did have a TSB for the starter motors which gave trouble hot starting on the D4D engines, basically they doubled the power of the starter from 1.2 to 2.4Kw. Check whether there's anything similar for yours. Hugh from City of Glasgow

check on the box to see if its a cable driven speed sensor or electric, if electric check your connections. if cable, you will need to run the cable to the back of the speedo / change the speedo cluster to match matt from Tyne and Wear

Hi, I'm having a Toyota Hiace 2.5 Diesel. The problem is when I engage second gear, the engine lost power and begin to stall. In order to avoid stall, I have to use first gear followed by third gear.
