635 441 2jzhilux

Mitsubishi Triton’s have a significantly higher EGR intake manifold build-up problem, more so than many other manufacturers. They present as almost like a fuel system issue, because the miss is so heavy and the white smoke so significant the car is virtually un-drivable. The Problem The reality is it’s actually caused by dirty and clogged…

The Truth About Adding Two-Stroke Oil To Diesel In Modern Common Rail Engines
150 150 2jzhilux

It seems counter-intuitive to be utilising 2-stroke oil in diesel on common rail, low emission vehicles. The actual premise behind adding 2-stroke does carry weight in certain instances. Vehicles equipped with Bosch, Delphi, or even Siemens fuel systems generally don’t need it. Therefore, you’re unlikely to see a significant change in engine performance or noise…

The Critical Importance Of Cleanliness When Installing Injectors

Though it may come as a surprise, the internal tolerance of a common rail injector is remarkably small. A micrometer (micron) is effectively a thousandth of a millimeter. The internal net clearance of many of the injector components is 5 microns. This means there’s only 2 ½ microns of clearance by the side of the moving and…

WARNING: The Wrong Filter Kits Can Lead to Injector Damage!
635 635 2jzhilux

We strongly recommend the usage of secondary two-micron filter kits, with inbuilt water traps, to be placed after the factory filter. The reason being, generally a lot of vehicles will only use an 8 to 5-micron filter assembly for the factory filter. This is not adequate because the injectors on average have a roundabout of 3 microns’…

At Bailey’s Diesel, we’ve been receiving an increased number of phone calls for Toyota 1KD, or Toyota Hilux and Prado fitted with 1KD engines, and turbo-charger Stepper motor related fault codes, or running engine problems. The Problem Generally speaking, they will logic code that relates to the Stepper motor itself. It can be a bit of a troublesome fault code to solve, because it’s quite common that the Stepper motor driver, which is an external computer system or external ACU from the main ACU, has failed as well. Before replacing a complete turbo-charger with the Stepper motor assembly, it is worth ensuring that the external Stepper motor driver is not the issue, before spending the money. The Solution The next situation is that in many instances, the actual Turbo charger itself is fine, but the Stepper motor itself has failed. Where previously you would have to replace the entire turbo-charger at a cost of $3,500 dollars, Bailey’s Diesel now has the Stepper motor available as a separate, individual item which saves the customer a few grand in the process. It’s a simple solution to a simple problem.
