  • Commonrail Fuel Filter

    some of you may know about what happens to a commonrail engine if the high pressure pump fails - basically , bits of metal from the pump get flushed into the commonrail , the injectors , fuel lines and the tank . the fix is to replace the pump and clean / replace all the affected parts , costing many many $$$$. I heard it was $15k to do that on the Prado motor , and diesel specialists can obtain repair kits containing the required parts.
    I have been told by the dealer service manager that on our new GD engines Toyota have installed a filter which will catch these particles in event of a pump fail , greatly reducing the repair bill. this will be good news if its true. I'm picking up my new Fortie today so will confirm that and post back.

      that should be it , im not sure though . I picked up the car yesterday but the guy at the parts counter couldnt tell me. I looked for that same device on my engine but could not see it for all the EGR stuff that is in the way. and if it is located there its not an easy exercise to replace the cartridge.
