Sounds like a glow plug problem,if it starts o.k. when warm,but not when cold,does it smoke a lot when trying to start it cold,if so i would say your glow plugs are either burned out or theres no power to them when you turn on the key,do you see the glow plug light on the dash,it may light,but that doesn,t mean the glow plugs are getting power

    changed the glow plugs made shure they get electricity and they do but still a few seconds 10 to make it run and a lot of black smoke when starting the engine in the morning.

    depending on the outside ambient air temp,does the glow plug light go out telling you its ready to start?if you try starting before this you foul the glow plugs and load up the cylinders with cold fuel(unburned)then when it fires it will burn a white to black at first to burn this off depending on the outside air temp again

It sounds like the turbo has gone out. That will make a diesel sluggish and burn oil out the turbo. replace the turbo and it should be fine

AIR GETTING INTO COOLING SYSTEM TOYOTA MASTERACE TURBO DIESEL 1993 4X4


Air getting in to the cooling system is a good indication that the head gasket has gone bad. During the time your turbo will boost the compression ratio is when the air will get pushed through the head gasket into your cooling jackets between the engine block and head's. Good luck and hope this helps.

Engine knocking.


Hi,my 92 prado started making a knocking sound recently,we couldn't pin it down to one spot in the engine.
The knocking was constant at low revs and then disapeared.
Turned out to be the tourque converter knob had bust of and eventually destroyed the fly wheel and the transmission pump.
Definatley check under top cover and also drop off the sump to check for loose nuts etc.
hope this helps.

Lc prado overheat cause?


The turbo will not cause overheating.
Check the thermostat in the cooling system is working and then smell the coolant with the engine running. If you smell exhaust gases in the coolant it could be the head gasket.

Toyota Landcruiser 4.2lt diesel OR 3lt turbo diesel prado


The cruiser as long as its the turbo diesel, direct injection (4.2td), be aware though that this model has inherent "sag" with the IFS suspension, so if buying secondhand then upgrade the torsion bars(and factor this into your buying price).
