6g74 DOHC Reccon Questions

Thanks in advance for any advice. I don't see any mention on the Forum about full reccons. I am thinking about having my engine reconditioned. 6g74 DOHC (quad cam) Pajero 1995 GLX NJ I know it is not worth doing from a money point of view. But it is worth it for me. I only paid $2,000 for the car an...

Re: What Is This ?? Plenum (manifold) buttrefly Issue.

An up date for those interested and those with the same problem. I removed the entire butterfly one week ago... Absolutely NO noticeable difference in power !! The pic shows the butterfly fully open. As you can see fully open is only about 5mm. In other words the long run is used all the time. The b...

Re: What Is This ??

Just a quick up date for those that might be interested. I thought I would take a look and I found this... rod.JPG This is exactly what has been described as the cause of vibration which then causes the screws to come loose. The plastic sleeve on the rod is completely gone and you can see how bad th...

Re: What Is This ??

Thanks for taking the time to reply :) Yes, apparently it is a very common mod, according to what I am reading. It seems that the 5hp I was reading about is only a theory. In practice it is almost impossible to measure any difference. Apparently they used these butterflies for a short time during th...

Re: What Is This ??

Well...A little research finds that this thing is in fact the vacuum actuator for the butterfly assembly in the plenum...Thanks WytWun, you are the man :D There is an issue thou...Apparently a fault in the actuator can cause vibration of the butterfly which cause the screws to come loose. Screw then...

Re: What Is This ??

Thanks for the reply. It sure is a DOHC (also known as a quad cam) 3.5. It has been making the hissing noise all the time I have had the car. It is just that I only hear it with the bonnet open. I decided to make a serious effort to find the hissing and tracked down to this thing... It has a wire li...

What Is This ?? Plenum (manifold) buttrefly Issue.

Hi everyone,

Thanks in advance :)

I am hoping someone might be able to tell me what this is...The round gold coloured thing.

See attached.

It is making a loud hissing noise. It looks like an EGR but I am not sure. Is it supposed to make a hissing noise?

Thanks.

Repeller Alarm...How To

Hi everyone, Can someone tell me how to use my Repeller alarm please. The bloke I got the car off said the remote was for the central locking but doesn't work.

Hi everyone. I am about to do an oil change and thought I might change the fuel filter too. The book says it's a Z481 (Ryco). At $54 !!! from Supercheap or starting at about $40 on eBay. However, the book also says it is interchangeable with Z441 which is $19 from SCA and about $5 on eBay. What I am...

Re: Express Van. Junction Box Help Needed

Thanks Dougal, That video is helpful. It didn't help in this case. But it does give some very good tips and I learnt a thing or two :) The express owner gave me permission to proceed with the risk of damage...I have found that junction box does in fact go on the Pos. It connects power to 4 leads. Th...

Express Van. Junction Box Help Needed

Hi everyone. I hope someone might be able to help me. A friend has a 1994 Express 2 litre. He asked me to have a look at it because the battery keeps going flat. I have found a junction box with "lock, light, def, ign" printed on it. It has a mounting bracket. I think it should be mounted to the bod...

Re: Oil Pressure Sender - 1995 Pajero

Thanks mate..

That is very helpful. I didn't realise there were 2 sensors involved. I can only see one, which has a wire but is not connected. Maybe the other one is above the oil filter out of sight. I might put it up on the ramps to get a better look.

Thanks again.

Cheers
