    Good afternoon everyone, I am about to do my next service and started ordering all the parts. All websites don't really recommend red coolant for my 98 gu patrol. I've always used the RED NULON coolant. I'll give the system a good flush anyway, so should i stick with RED or just change it to...

    So after replacing the oil cooler, gaskets and seals. I still have engine oil in my coolant. I am leaning towards the head gasket. BUT, I’d like to know where the oil gallery passes through from the block to the head? Has anyone got a diagram to point it out to me please

    Hi fellas, I’ve found a lot of corrosion and pitting inside the water passages of my head. The timing cover is also pitted. Obviously, the previous owners failed to change the coolant regularly. Is this amount of corrosion common for a high km TD42? Thanks in advance

    I know this has been bought up a million times but I cant find a "simple" answer. After a high country trip on the weekend I worked the car pretty hard (n/a td42 silvertop) it was hanging around the hot mark up hills but never went past it. It had blown alot out of the reservoir though. It...

    Hello fellow patrollers, My problem may be normal and I'm just paranoid, but I have a tb42 carby straight petrol. And recently I replaced water pump and radiator cap then topped up the system. I'll say up front that the water to coolant ratio is high so it is probably 90% water. Now on hot...
