    Rust On Engine Bay ?

    You can apply some grease or oil those areas once in a while. It will protect from rusting.

    Bonnet Paint - Black

    I have no idea why you want to paint it in black but it has few negative impacts on your car. 1. It may not look original (With respect, It all depends on personal preferences) 2. It will absorb more heat (Though it may not notice, the AC system will have to run a bit longer to cool which needs more power & finally hits the mpg) 3. If I am not mistaken, it is not legal to change the original color of the vehicle ( Said in the registration book) but I think its not being questioned practically. A suggestion; If you need to make it look like black, why not use a sticker? You can reverse it to the original later if you need. (I think using a good quality sticker may cost you a bit more with warranty)

    Hybrid Battery Is Not Sending Power To Motor

    According to what I understood, The problem may be with the electronics / software related ( iDCD ?) (I am not an expert on this matter) Almost everyone suggested, you'd better see the agent before it's getting too late.

    Shock Absorbers - Upgrade

    JC, "Original KYB" means do we get duplicated ones? If so how I can find the original Japanese ones? According what the T**S Agencies rep told me, They have Oil and Gas both . He asked me to use GAS but I have a dough whether it will give a bumpy ride than what I have now. (4DR5 is already a rough ride though). Thank you.

    Shock Absorbers - Upgrade

    Hi Guys, Need your expert advice on which shock absorbers to be selected for a 4DR5 J44. I have 2 options, KYB (Gas) for about Rs. 4000 Amada Xtreme for Rs. 8500 I am to replace all 4 and willing to buy any of the above. I kindly need expert advice on, 1. Is KYB good for a 4DR5? (Leaf Spring - kind of rough ride) 2. Is it worth to buy Amada Xtreme ( Cost to Benefit Ratio) than buying KYB? I am not a hardcore off roader and looking for an expert answer for this. May be someone has previous experience, please post. Thanks in advance.

    Buying A Nissan Patrol Y60

    Keep looking. It is the only advice from my end. Believe me, I looked more than 18 vehicles to find a good 4DR5. (Y60 are rare than 4DR5 I guess) You can now check the vehicle details even online and try to stick to the original if the mods are not done by experts.

    4D56 Turbo / Turbo Intercooler

    Thanks. Forget the non-turbo version. When it comes to turbo vs turbo inter-cooled versions, which one would be the most ideal for SL condition with the comparison of maintenance/reliability and the spares? Thanks.

    4D56 Turbo / Turbo Intercooler

    Hi Guys, Please be kind to clarify the below for me. In 4D56 Engines, some are non turbo and other are intercooler turbo or turbo. Is turbo intercooled better than normal turbo engines? What is the mechanical explanation? Mostly these engines come with 32- Pajero in SL (Known as Palath Sabha). Appreciate your reply. Thanks.

    Hi Guys, Topic is old but worth asking here than opening the same topic again. Have you bought any TK series GPS Trackers? For example there are many such as TK102, TK103, TK104, TK106 ...etc with their own functionalities for each. So, please post if you have bought any of those and how you review it. I look for one these days with motion activated with speed and direction. And wondering which one to buy. Hope for a better answer. Thanks guys.

    Hybrid Engine Oil?????????????!

    Hybrid Engine Oil?????????????!

    Good question. We all expect a valid reason from him. These kind of treatments from a first owner cause problems not only to the car but also to owners after him. Better to avoid buying if the maintenance is problematic.
