I have had an issue with the coolant filling up the header tank and not returning to the rad i had to syphon out the coolant and put back into the rad, i knew when the coolant had filled up the rad when my heater blows hot then cool, i have change the rad cap and the thermostat but this has not solved the problem, took it in for a service today and asked them to flush out the system and have a look to see if anything was a miss, came back checked everything now going down H/G route.

So i have done some research as i thought this head on 2013 was better than a K74 and a few posts on forums saying this model has a faulty rad which causes the H/G to fail, has anybody experienced or heard of this.

Cheers

(I'm driving an L200, 2005, 2.5 Turbo Deisel, K74)
Can anybody out there quantify the 'normal/healthy' vacuum levels that I should expect (if I were to tee a gauge into the system) at any locations between the vacuum pump and lets say at the check-valve before the solenoids, at the accumulator on the chassis rail, and at the 4WD/diff lock actuator ?
(I have vacuum, it swaps as it should as the solenoids change between 2 & 4WD. The manual / fault finding advice describes 'weak' vacuum. My vacuum feels weak throughout - trouble is I don't know what normal feels like.
Thanks

Its an overhead cam so there are no push rods,thats what I assume you mean by a valve rod.Could be a snapped valve stem I had that a while ago.

Moral of this saga is that the volt meter is not for show.....!!!!  Roll Eyes

Hi All

Currently in search of an engine clack that seems to be coming from the inside. It sounds similar to the diesel pump but a lot louder, worse on cold start up. I initially thought it to be the bottom pulley so changed that, then change all the bottom end bearings including the thrust ones. Clack still there. Im now thinking the tappets??? or valve rod?? Any way any advice would be much appreciated.
The last owner had the head gasket done, I have put 3000 miles on it with no water loss. so happy with that. Its on 93k currently with very good service history.

Thanks

Paul
