Answer this question

Diekola Ibitoye, Nigeria

Toyota Hiace

I have a 2008 Hiace with Diesel Engine. Of late the engine has been so difficult to repair/service and I am considering changing the diesel engine to a petrol engine. Is this a feasible option technically/mechanically? The cost of changing the sensitive parts of the diesel engine is prohibitive and the used petrol engine is cheaper, readilly available and cheaper to maintain. Any experience doing this and what are the risks?

Mark, Lincolnshire

I have a Toyota Hiace 2003 d4d which is bomb proof. However if the revs drop to idle it puts the engine warning light on and stays on and the engine will not rev up until it is switched off and restarted, holding revs above idle the fault is a generic p1226? The van can be driven perfectly as long as the revs are not allowed to fall to idle. I would be eternally grateful if someone can tell me what's wrong or have experienced the same problem?

I have a Toyota Hiace super custom 1KZ engine. Of late it has been cutting off its engine after a few minutes of idling, the throttle makes a twitching sound to indicate its opening, the car starts and idles for a few minutes then cuts off. The check engine will flash just before it cuts. If I try to start it again the throttle will not make that twitching sound and the car will not start but just produces a white smoke.

Hello. my toyota hiace van engine 5l just had a total engine overhaul now the engine is overheating and the oil lamp is blinking. what could be the problem please? thanks, lydia

Answers

You have not stated why the engine had to be overhauled in the first place and what was done to it exactly. Causes of overheating are several. They include improperly fitted head gasket, leaking water system, faulty water pump or even just a bad radiator cap. The first thing would be to ask (your mechanic) what they replaced and what they think the problem is coming from. The flickering oil switch could be due to a loose connection or an indication of a failing oil pump, assuming it was not changed during the overhaul.

Robert, Australia

Toyota Hiace

The pressure builds up in my radiator & goes into the over-flow tank, but does not return to the radiator - which needs to be re-filled every day. I have put on 3 new radiators caps, taken it to 4 mechanics, who could not identify the problem - hence, nor fix it!! They pressure tested it (it was OK), none could find any leaks, tested for oil (OK), checked oil (OK), heater & flushed it. It does not overheat. Still, it does not suck the water back into the radiator. Any ideas would be most appreciated. Thanks, Rob
