My toyota fortuner 3l d4d 2007 I notice the clutch pedal feels a bit harder than normal any cause of this?

A harder clutch pedal in your Toyota Fortuner 3.0L D4D 2007 could be indicative of several potential issues. It's important to have a qualified mechanic inspect and diagnose the specific cause, but I can suggest some common reasons for a harder clutch pedal:
  • Clutch Wear:
  • The clutch may be nearing the end of its life and may require replacement. Over time, the clutch disc and pressure plate can wear, leading to a harder pedal feel.
  • Clutch Hydraulic System Issues:
  • The hydraulic system, including the clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder, or hydraulic lines, could be leaking, damaged, or experiencing air bubbles, resulting in a harder pedal feel. Inspect for any leaks or damage in these components.
  • Clutch Cable Issues (if applicable):
  • If your Fortuner uses a mechanical clutch linkage with a cable, the cable could be stretched, frayed, or damaged, causing increased resistance in the pedal.
  • Clutch Release Bearing:
  • The clutch release bearing may be failing or worn out, causing increased resistance when engaging and disengaging the clutch.
  • Clutch Fork or Pivot Issues:
  • The clutch fork or its pivot may be damaged or experiencing increased friction, making the pedal feel harder.
  • Pressure Plate Issues:
  • The pressure plate, which engages and disengages the clutch, might have issues like wear, warping, or damage, affecting the pedal feel.
  • Flywheel Problems:
  • The flywheel could be worn, damaged, or have hot spots, affecting the clutch engagement and the pedal feel.
  • Improperly Lubricated Components:
  • Lack of lubrication in the clutch linkage or pedal assembly can cause increased friction and result in a harder pedal.
Conclusion. It's essential to address any clutch-related issues promptly to prevent further damage and ensure the safety and performance of your vehicle. It's recommended to have a professional mechanic inspect and diagnose the specific cause of the harder clutch pedal in your Toyota Fortuner.

Can I swap an Isuzu Trooper 6VD1(RLS) engine with an Isuzu Wizard 6VD1(RLS) engine

That engine was used in both models. As long as the model number, year of manufacture and generation of the engine match you should be able to do the swap. An obvious suggestion is to take a very good look at your engine and take photos, then go to look at the replacement engine. Compare the two. If your not sure take someone with you that knows engines.

Where is the cooling fan relay on a 1986 Ford Escort 2.0l Diesel L trim manual?

They are normally fitted in the fuse box under the bonnet mounted on the drivers side of the bulkhead. If there is a relay or a fuse fitted it is often labelled with a fan/propeller style symbol.

Keys locked inside my Volvo s40 2007 trunk is open can I access my car through the trunk

This is one of those 'Yes - No' answers. Rear seat that drop were an option on the V40 so the answer could be no. Take a look through the left side of the back window at the rear parcel shelf, next to the left head rest. Your looking for a small push button panel, about the size of cigarette box, with two buttons on it. If it's not there the rear seats are fixed into position. If there is one there you might be able to 'trip' the lock spring from inside the trunk. This method is for a much newer model so it might not work. Look inside the trunk, high up on the rear seat where the flat of the seat meets the parcel shelf. There should be a metal rail going all the way across the car. I've attached a photo. Looking straight up at it there are holes in it and you should be able to see a spring or a cable through one of them. Using a chunky, flat blade screwdriver you might be able to 'flick' the latch to release one side of the back seat. The spring is a strong one sort will fight you. To do this you'll be lying with you legs hanging out of the trunk wrestling with it, Probably swearing a lot as well. If you manage to drop the back seat you probably need a small person to wriggle through the hole as I think the rear seat pad needs to be lifted for it to drop all the way. volvo trunk-rw55qbiiuvznhqe5t1mp4qum-d-0.jpg
