Hey all , i have a 07 gu patrol 3l crtd ... i have had car since new and i have clocked up 110k now the car never has been right from the start in my opion , but i have takin it everywhere to have everyone tell me there is no problem ..... f
Problem 1 : Bad fuel economy = 110L gets no more than 680/700 km
2 : blows alot of smoke
3 : lack of power down low

since they have told me there is nothing wrong with it ... i have since add a 3inch exhaust ... and now have installed a power chip

Problem 4: add chip and has done nothing apart from blowing even more smoke

Has anyone got any idea how to takel this problem or have any clue to what fuel figures i should be getting ???

Have you replaced your MAF sensor, if not I strongly suggest you use the search tool up the top left corner of the website, there is lots of information about MAFs and issues very similar to what your describing.

I tried cleaning mine with contact cleaner, windex, just about every nonresidue cleaner I could find and it didn't work, once I replaced it, it was as good as new.

I don't know what CRDs are supposed to get, but I get about 800-900km out of the 90L tank on my DI.

Hey mate see if you can borrow a maf of someone local just to see if it makes any difference. Alot of people like myself carry a spare one all the time when out of town. I'd lend you mine but mines an 03 DI and you need an CRD one.

FYI i get about 850km from roughly 110L. But mi running 285 MT tyres, 2 inch lift, steel bull bar and winch and a full roof rack when i dont take off. Just out of interest is your EGR blocked?

hey mate this happened to my olds patrol it turned out to be one of the hoses for the turbo or air intake but not sure which one. it lost all power gradualy till it had to be limped to the closest mech. while in there they found many of the hoses to be leaking oil out so they took the intercooler off and flushed it, the crap that came out was unbelivable. when putting it back together they installed a catch can to pick up the excess oil and stop it going through the system. this also stopped it blowing smoke. hope this helps
