    DI ran until the end of 2006. CRD hit the market in 2007. I have the 2006 DI.
    Had the joy of a grenade with my 2006 Di, but I am pretty sure I was over fueling--mods to MAF, turbo etc. I am now back...

    Glow plug working life

    Does anyone have information (not speculation) on the working life of glow plugs--3.0 direct injection.
    Either mine are losing performance, or the relay is dropping out too quickly.

    Alternatively, what pressures are you experiencing??

    The rebuild is similar $$'s to re-co motor. They also fit a new head. I know the rebuilder and they are local. Time is not critical--except I am reduced to borrowing my wife's Territory :biggrin:...

    OK so I now know the issue is the two front pistons are stuffed--not in the top but down the side. Really bad scoring of the bore in both cylinders. It looks like #2 has been hot, but I guess if a...

    The head carries a camshaft that runs off the timing chain at the top part of the front. That covers the drive to the camshaft, so needs to come off.

    I suspect I can get the front cover off, and...

    Hi Hodge: Actually did the engine out water repair a few years back, just a slight bow in the steel plate behind the timing gear. $50 fix for $3K. This is no compression between #1 and #2.

    Hi Mudski: you are probably correct but I have had too many birthdays to be rebuilding at this stage. Should have done it when I had the engine out to do the water leak.

    I have compression issues with #1 and 2 cylinders--both fail to hold compression. #3 and 4 are fine.
    Initial diagnosis says there is a blown head gasket between those two.

    I think the crankcase is always under pressure when running, so removing the oil cap simply lets the built-up pressure out, fumes and all. When it comes out the normal crankcase vent, the Provent...

    Thanks for the comments. Seems the common solution here is hose and valve down the side.

    Checking for a place to return oil from the Provent, I found the oil return pipe for the turbo connects to the "upper" sump.

    My 3.0Di managed our trailer easily--only places we were REALLY slow were climbing up to Toowoomba and Monto--both steep and long. Just get down in the gears early.
