04 diesel toyota landcruiser, no power when I accelerate. only revs to about 1500rpm. diesel and filters clean.


well it runs,,,,,
low power on a diesel is
1: low compression
2: bad fueling
#2 can take forever to find, if you dont know what engine it is or what fuel system was used.. no country stated, so cant guess
read the wiki on land cruiser and see what you have.
we dont know.

series 80?
series 100,200 ??? what?

one of those last 4? engines?
once there, we try to find out how it works. each varies.
can fix engines with out knowing exactly what it is, and the injection system, used.
cant.

Golf tdi 1.9 2002 , 296000kms. turbi fitted 8 months ago. now takes long to pick up speed but on flats is better. not enough power


installing a new turbo on a vehicle can cause increased "turbo lag" in the system as the new turbo is not tuned exactly right, or worn in the same as the engine. If you take your vehicle to a mechanic and ask him to tune your turbo you might find some relief (with many turbos this is possible, but not all). This is a delicate procedure and should be completed by a professional (tuning the turbo for the car includes setting the exact pressure increase in the engine -- especially with a diesel engine, over-pressurizing the system can cause the engine to fire improperly and cause massive damage). A mechanic will also be able to tell you if there is something else wrong with the vehicle (like a clogged fuel filter, weak fuel pump or something similar) that could be causing the problem.

My 2006 Sprinter has over 30,000 miles and when going up long, steep slopes it slows down, but keeps running smooth. I did change the fuel filter recently and that did help but did not solve the problem. ...


YOU HAVE A AIR LEAK IN THE TURBO SYSTEM CK HOSE'S MY 2006 3500 SPLIT THE HOSE HIGH WHISTLING SOUND. LOW POWER / AND LIMP MODES TOO. ORDER THIS AND BINGO IF FIX IT . YES THE OLD TURBO RESONATOR HAD SPLIT TOO. I did not use the o-ring from the old part I found one 1 side down that fit tight around the new part. A loose o-ring is going to weak air too. Got mine on ebay.

Same problem on mine was a block fuel filter (quite common). About £70 fitted by main dealer. I'd stay away from whoever told you the above and get a second opinion!

I want to add TURBO to my 1996 Golf III Diesel, and need to know what to change/add. Thanks.


well i have never done it myself. but its going to be alot of hassle.
its not the same as sticking a turbo on a petrol

1 you need a manifold which will suit it
2 for best results you need an exhaust to match
3 you will need to replace the fuel pump. to match the size of your engine (preffrably take the turbo and the fuelpump from the turbo version.
4just as well stick a new timing belt on while the fuel pump is off
then you need to tap into the oil as turbos need a constant oil feed. and that might require drilling and tapping into the block.

this is only an educated guess but im sure its pretty standard in fitting a turbo to a non turbo viehical.

I would like to do an engine swap. I have an 1987 jeep wrangler 4.2l inline six with the 5 speed manual transmission. I would like to swap in a diesel engine that gets 40 to 50 miles per gallon. Is this...


well besides a ton of work. what is the diesel engine. i didnt think that jeep made to many of those if any. you are better off getting a truck that already is a diesel and save alot of time and money. which in the long run could be cheaper to buy a used truck that runs.
as for the swap you may have to buy need motor mounts or have special ones made to fit the mounts. then you got the fuel system and tank and since the diesel is alot more pressure you will have to change the lines and find a pump that will work, more money. then you need to get the wire harness changed to efi to the diesel and hope it works after modify to fix the truck. the if you moved to motor and trany from the stuck postion you will need new driveshafts. and then you got the radiator to get changed and if the new motor wieghts more you may have to change to springs in the front to keep the old ride hieght. told you it would be a ton of work.

1985 B reg T3 Transporter 1.6 Diesel LHD


Does anyone know if it is possible to put a bigger engine in the T3 as at the moment we have a 1.6 not turbo diesel and we can only do 90 kmh . we thought that maybe another engine and a five speed gearbox but which one will go straight in and if we have to adjust anything what would we have to change to get a bigger engine in. I don't suppose there is any chance of putting a turbo diesel engine straight in? Also why do you not have T3 1985 listed > I had to put this under 1986,

Anyway we managed to tow the T3 1985 camper to a garage and the problem isn't that bad .
Because the belt was slipping it wasn't turning the pully fast enough to cool the engine which is also why the rev counter was eratic apparently.
We had a small hole in the top of the expansion tank which is where the water came from (which will be replaced) and apparently the bit of oil had come from what looked like the flywheel casing anyway the mechanic got some long nosed pliers and pulled out a plastic tube from it (behind the line of injectors ) he seems to think that somthing is missing that conects to it - what ? i'm not sure, as my French isn't that good.
