Hi Marius

Any advice on where I can try source a used "etacs" box (blue box under the steering column) for a Pajero 2003 LWB 3.2DI-D GLS. Urgent as stuck in Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape. Will send a courier to collect. Also need a crank pulley. Mitsubishi SA does not have any stock of either.

Many Thanks

Hi,I have a 2.5 touareg, every thing is ok just a lot of oil runing from the throttle body, can it be turbo bush?


Hi

A bit of oil is normal but it should leak out with the pipe on or else the o-rings are failing.

This is my intake - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PKjYSZf_oE

If the car doesn't smoke at idle when hot I wouldn't worry about it. I would however consider cleaning the intercooler every 50'000km or so.

Hi. Thank you for helping and spreading information, it has been really helpful, and iknow you are right man to ask when it comes touareg. So i have 2.5 alternator problem it really hard to get it out what should i do man iiv taken all out and its still like locked iin to its place. Please help winter is here and car is dead. I have all oics to you to see where iv stock. Thanks for your time.


Elastic drive coupling swapped.

- Undo the nut on the engine mounting (19mm)
- Jack up left side of engine so the engine mounting comes clear of the bolt (i used a bottle jack between the antiroll bar and the AC pump. I had a block of wood between AC pump and jack - I pumped the jack with my fingers only and it was enough to get clearance)
- Undo the 4 bolts that hold the pendulum mount (mounting brace) to the block (one of these took me an hour to get off) - (16mm)
- wiggle the pendulum brace downwards for access, no need to remove
- undo the alternator bracket top 2 allen bolts (6mm allen key)
- undo the allen bolt (also 6mm allen key) just below the elastic drive coupler (a small mirror comes handy here)
- There should now be enough clearance to jiggle the alternator around to get the old coupling off and the new one on.

Reverse procedure for installation.

If you want to do the freewheel pulley as well, you will need to take the intake manifold off, loosen the two hoses coolant hoses above the alternator, and undo the powersteering banjo bolt to move the pipe out of the way for access to get the alternator out.

Hello,

I just found your site AND find it very much usefull, especially for beginners- DIY'ers like me.
I would have a kind question: have already this infamouse flashing diff light in Pajero gen 3, 3.2 diesel 2004, it started after 15-20km firstly but now is permanently on -
- what do you excatly mean by "renewing the vacuum solenoids by the airbox" as a cure for above syndrom?

Kind regards
Zebe

Hey e4. Hope ive got the right South African. This is me from clash of clans. Don't know if your still playing or not. I'm sorry for bailing on the old clan a while ago. Sophie wanted to have a clan where she could keep an eye on her kids.
Our current clan is called elvers ( red and white shield). You are very welcome to join us. At the moment the clan is very friendly and generous. You are probably in another clan which I respect.
Email me if you want to say hi id like to stay in contact. I enjoyed our wars together. Or see you in the clan.
I'm also on face book.
Thanks.

Hi

Just remember that the 4m41 we have is fromn a 2006 pajero which is an electronic pump injection engine.Not a common rail engine.

The loom we have is a custom made unit to integrate with the gen1 wiring. We will only sell the loom if the engine is taken.

I have been asking myself am I as crazy and self punishing as I think I am? It would be the ultimate freedom machine though..a 150kw 4M41 in a Deli:)
In my experience our 4M40 delivered between 12 to 13L/100km is that high for a 4M40? From many people on forums the 4M41 returns 8 to 9L/100km. so after 20,000km saving 3L/100km paying 1.59/l for diesel I'll save $954 for the year. I can do 99% of the work myself and I can buy a 4M40 for $3800 with 70k on the clock or a Jap import for $3000 with 50k on the clock. Our car wreckers are getting full of 4M41. Many car mags rave about the 4M41, I guess the Common rail and veriable geometry turbo really tickles people, incl me.
So over in SA are you expected to sell the motor with the loom? In Aus you pay a couple of hundred extra..or do you want someone to buy the motor to do the same conversion as your Dad. I'm after the loom that is in the car that connects to the computer and ign barrel,throttle, etc.
Let me know if/when your willing to separate them.


The 4m40 and 4m41 will yield the same economy. However the 3.2 is more powerful. You will have to drive many many years to offset the extra cost of purchasing/installing a 3.2. Unless you can do 99% of the work yourself the cost of such a transplant will be three times what an import/rebuilt 2.8 will cost. Changing an engine is easy and relatively cheap. Doing conversions can be costly.

Yes. My dad is selling his gen1 as the gearbox's input shaft sheared off. We still don't know why but the engine is perfect and the rest of the car is still intact. The engine will be sold with the loom unless the engine is sold alone, then the loom would be up for sale.

Thanks for your advice, would you keep the 4M40 because the 4M41 has problems? or is the install just to difficult? My thinking was the money saved with the better fuel economy and less oil changes, would payoff the extra cost of purchasing a 4m41. Then I could sell the injectors and injector pump and end up not being that much more out of pocket. I have estimated some hidden costs like buying a throttle and AC modifiation. Was it you Dad that is selling that gen1? Has he sold the loom yet?

My dad built a 4m41 into a gen1 pajero. He has the 700 page wiring manual if you need it. If i were you i would stick with the 2.8 but upgrade the radiator, install a freeflow exhaust as well as an egt monitor and coolant loss alarm.

Hey, I like your page. Your a man after my own heart. Lots of great stuff. I have just bought a Delica with the 4M40 TD motor. I bought it real cheap because the owner said the head gasket has blown. You and I know that that means %90 of the time cracked head because I've regretfully let go a 4M40 pajero in the past so I have a bit of experience with them. So I ripped the head off and found a cracked head and gouges in the cylinder and heaps of impact marks from what looks like the doings from a blown turbo. So been looking at options and have searched around and decided to see if installing the 4M41 is feasible. I was wondering if you had a wiring loom that accommodates the installation of the 4M41 into a Delica, or if you could tell me how to merge the two looms. This seems like the biggest hurdle for the conversion. Seeing how the 4M41 is getting cheaper and more abundent to buy maybe you could do an article on it as it seems like a trend that will start. Due to all the benefits of power, economy, reliability, larger service intervals, etc. Also do you have a 4M41 computer as well or should I just get one locally? Thanks Mate.

The cheap alternators tend to fail on the pajeros for some reason. My brother went through about 5 of them on his 2.8.

Buy once and buy bosch.

Hi there

So as if the coolant issue is not enough I have now been let down by the alternator for the 2nd time. The first time there were some warning light but now there was no light just the wipers going slower and the car eventually sputtered and died in front of the kid's school.

Ive taken it back to the repair shop, and Im waiting for collection but why does it happen? Apparently the stator burned out
