How to tune your diesel toyota up


Every three months or when the oil change is due, is the right time to perform a tune-up. A diesel engine needs good, clean oil, fuel, and air. Traditionally good car owners think that they are doing well by changing the oil when needed, take a look at the engine once a year, and let the state inspection guy tell them if they need something safety related. With this logic, the car seems fine and later on, down the road, the owner wonders what is wrong. I say this because some or most car owners don't perform a tune-up every year. Cars are lucky to see one in five years. A clogged fuel filter will increase fuel usage, wear out fuel injectors faster, cause more wear on the fuel injection pump and the fuel transfer pump, and cause O-rings to leak or fail. An over due oil change will affect the life and performance of the fuel injectors, fuel injection pump, engine cylinders and valves, and the turbo. An old, clogged air-filter will not allow the right amount of air to enter into the engine. This will cause carbon build-up (from unburned fuel). So now that I preached your ear off (lol). This is why I recommend performing a "Tune-up" at every oil change. I don't know how many miles you put on the vehicle each year and I don't know how much you want to do yourself. So I'll just put the information out there and you will need to decide if you want to do it or have someone else take care of it. Every time I perform an oil change I check the following (I work on a lot of different cars and trucks so some of the items may not be in your car): Oil level and color, last oil change interval, fuel filter, air filter, serpentine belt, related pulleys, damaged wiring or hoses, antifreeze lever, color, age, and the cap on the radiator and overflow tank, windshield washer level and performance, power steering fluid lever and color, brake fluid level and color, wiper blades, all lights, cracked lens, license plate and sticker, state inspection sticker, seat belts (need to function and be free of defects), Steering wheel is tight(no excessive play), horn works, All warning lights are working and none are are on while vehicle is running, climate controls work, wipers and washer fluid works, glass and mirrors are clean and not damaged, window glass, door handles and locks, exhaust (is it secured or leaking and are the heat-shields in place), gas cap, Tire wear, inflation, tread depth, even tread wear, no bubbles in side-walls of tread, no cuts, and the that all the valve stems have a valve cap in place, rims are free of defects (not bent, warped, cracked, or damaged), shocks, both front and rear suspension, brakes, E-brake operation, wheel bearings, steering components, transmission level, color, and condition, gear oil level, color, and condition inside the drive axle, rot, holes, and damage underneath, inspect E-VAP lines, fuel lines, brake lines, transmission lines, power steering lines, U-joints, yokes, seals, CV joints, grease components (like ball-joints and tie-rods), and that your spare tire is secure, and full of air. That is about it. If this is done then future repairs will not be a surprise, components will last longer, and when you do need a repair it will cost you less because you caught it before it damaged something else. I hope this helps you and if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. Good luck. Also I do believe in Diesel fuel treatments. The new diesel fuel does not lubricate injectors well. Look for additives that clean and lubricate the fuel system and boosts Cetane levels.

Need to find out where the power steering fluid is we think it needs someadded but it is not where the book shows and we can't find it??????


The Power Steering Fluid has a reservoir with a cap on it and has a belt and pulley connected to the device. Hoses will lead to the rack and pinion system on the firewall. Underhood Check
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg

    HOW DO YOU REMOVE A POWER STEERING MOTOR AND REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE FOR A 2006 MALIBU?


    its a pump not a motor, you need to remove the drive belt from the pump, unbolt the pump from its mounting position, drain the oil out, remove the hydraulic oil line from the pump and remove the oil line.
    bolt new pump on, connect oil line and drive belt, tension the drive belt, fill with oil to the right level, turn steering lock to lock with engine running to remove all air from the system and recheck oil level

    My car is hard to steer the power steering went out


    hi from the uk thr reason your power steering has gone is most probably the pumps drive belt has snapped or the power steering oil has leaked from somewhere ? open the hood and investigate power steer oil level and whether belt is snapped it may be still in engine bay ? it is a simple job to fit new belt and can be purchased at most good auto supermarkets/stores and if you charm the guy at store he may also fit it too ? best wishes from n/west uk
