    @cambo do you know why the valve clearances and injector seals need to be done on the Hilux 1KD-FTV at 45,000km for models manufactured 2005-2011, but not on the ones after? What did they change?

    There’s a risk on the fuel limes as well, the more times they’ve been off and retorqued back on, the closer they get to failure.

    The valve clearences never get checked. Its a major mission to do them. Toyotas excuse to remove the injectors really.

    The seats and seals pre mid 2011? Was due to the design of the injectors and seats. They need to be replaced at 45 ks or they have a tendency to blow out and the compression gasses contaminate the engine oil and the crap blocks the oil pickup. Bad things then can happen.

    The injector lines recommended to be replaced 150ks due to the extreme pressures theyre under. The pressure is like 50000kpa or more. Normally only replace them when replacing the injectors or if they crack (which I have seen a few) though.

    2011 and later had different design and/or materials and don't need touching.

    I've got a 2016 2.8 litre hilix with about 98k on it and have noticed it's started to rattle a bit under light acceleration, I am guessing it's the injectors? What should I be asking for and what should I expect when it's goes in for its next service?

    They're a completely different engine in them (GD series). They have other issues like timing chain tensioners and DPF.

    All common rail diesels tend to have a prominent diesel knock compared to normal diesels. Its a characteristic of that design of engine.

    They're actually pretty good. Few had torque converter issues but feck all really. Only really been trucks used for heavy towing.
    Fitting an external cooler helps heaps.

    If its out of warranty get the EGR deleted. Not an easy job to do. There's a few places around that specialize in it though. (look up Kaiapoi Repowers or Extreme Tuning)

    If its under any warranty though, leave it alone. Any mods from factory could be used an out of any claim by the warranty company.

    My 25 year old hiace (1993) has just clocked 360,000km and still going strong (i mean slow, but un stoppable)
    Has hilux running gear so will go most places, and has more room than a poxy ute could ever dream of having.
    Also has a nice tailgate/umbrella for hiding from the rain under.

    Only drawback I can see is in case of a frontal collision..... but I guess im just living in the danger zone.
