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.

I dont think the turbo is working!


Unless something has gone horribly wrong with your vehicle, a turbocharger is a maintenance free item. A turbocharger works by using exhaust gas pressure to spin a turbine, wich then sucks and compresses cool clean air into the engine. Depending on what make and model vehicle, you can see how the turbo works by briefly removing the intake tube, from the air-side intake snail. revving the engine, hold your hand over the turbo snail you should feel quiet a lot of air being dispelled from the turbo. No oil should appear on your hands and their should not be any unusual noises, apart from the turbo whistle. Hook it all back up and whilst driving you should be able to feel a small increase in power, through the rev range. Depending on make and model, this will vary at the point this turbo boost comes in to play. Many engines it is around 1900-2500 Rpm. Petrols will be higher than diesels!

Turbo lag and lack of power


Hi,
This is the second Vw I have responded to in a fortnight.
Your lack of power I presume always happens when the glow plug light illuminates?
This is because it is causing over combustion to vaporised diesel, I would be looking in the Glow plug timer and relay, as for Turbo lag, I run a E34 6 cyl Bmw Diesel and the Turbo only kicks in around 2,500ish so maybe yours is a little tired or in need of a check up?
Hope this helped,
Paul 'W'

Slow on starting , holds back when driving, even on an A road or motorway my vehicle is mitsubishi shogun long wheel base 2.8 turbo diesel


turbo must have a problem or remember tro vehicles have turbo lag. . . usually mitsu's turbos start giving power around 2500prm - 3000rpm. .

but usually on older turbo diesel mitsus the turbos are the first to go. . . .
