    Can anyone tell me why I wouldn't be able to log in to this Forum with my PC!? Strange there is a large watermark of this Patrol logo staying on the main screen and can't access any of the forum or log in. It's fine from my phone though. !? 🤔 Sorry now but I didn't know where else to ask this. 😉
  4. Zd30 gearbox not staying in first gear

    3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Gearbox rebuild needed simple as!! A major sign is what you say not staying in gear and grinding is never good. Not a huge job and most good rebuilders can offer a removal service. In many cases a Syncromesh change is all that's needed and a refit. Here in Ireland it's between 1000 -1500euro...
  5. Report back after two years of rebuild

    3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Havn't been on here much lately but what i am saying Skeg is when the EGR is blocked the turbo low end spool up rate is faster below 2500rpm's as you know yourself this means too that it can start to overboost even worse if left like that.So as you know too to counter this the vacuum needs to be...
  6. Report back after two years of rebuild

    3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    I'm well aware about carbon build up and EGR but it depends on the way the Patrol is been driven! If these diesel engines are used as 'cars' for just driving around with the occasional off road bash then YES you probably will clog up everything faster. It don't matter if you drive it fast or...
  7. Report back after two years of rebuild

    3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Yeah it's a very interesting topic indeed. Last year i boiled a previously bulletproof (570000k old)2004 ZD30 that i owned for over 9 years (After doing an Injection pump change the mechanic damaged my Rad) It boiled to the point of catistrophic engine damage when said radiator went faulty and...

    Nice work!

    Those cracks won't do any harm between the valves and glow plug holes, a lot of ZD30 heads have them and there is a theory going around that using EGR can help reseal themselves as any extra carbon in the engine can seal those cracks up over time. Again this is only a theory. It's the larger...
  10. Cracked head ZD30DI

    3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Yeah i have a spare ZD30 engine here sitting in an 01 Patrol i recently broke for parts but i am tempted to do the head on it as the engine is 100percent and they are making very good money here to re-sell as they are getting rare now so i am doing my homework before the job and am going to...
  11. Cracked head ZD30DI

    3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Are you going to fit the head yourself? If you know you are fine but just saying this for those who don't...Be very wary torquing those head bolts and follow all the torque angles for the wrench when doing the final torquing of the bolts. So many mess this up. I have heard of a few that have not...

    3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Well it seems i got lucky again today when i had my missus sitting in the Patrol rocking the steering wheel as i was laying under it and to my surprise the bolt securing the drag link arm to the pitman arm was loose and just finger tight!! This slop only happened a few days ago so i new...

    Cheers Skeg,YES it sure is good to have it back. Christmas day is just over here (yesterday) and it's nice to have some time off too,a little holliday was no harm and badly needed. Just looking back on it and i just want to say that buying used vehicles is a risky thing and i knew what i was...

    So i got the Patrol back and thank god it's running perfect...like new! I am so lucky really that no valve damage was done.Really nothing to report bad about the way it's driving...when i picked it up i thought it was driving sluggish but it was cold so it was hard to tell.I test drove it for a...

    Just said i would post a fast update here...so i am collecting my Patrol tomorrow and they fitted a brand new Radiator too and great value at 200euro because as i previously mentioned my own was not the best. Apparently the hold up was the radiator as it had to come from UK.Also my Vacuum pump...

    3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Yes Skeg exactly my thoughts too after been down now over 10days i thought they might have found this earlier especially as i told them about the codes before i dropped it. I guess it's a process of elimination. And the timing thing took some time up fixing that guide & resetting everything. It...
