1998 Toyota Landcruiser TZ 3.0 turbo intercooler diesel

Summary:

A very good performer

Faults:

Automatic transmission oil pan leak transmission oil due to leaky gasket. replaced free by dealer.

Air conditioner sometime do not work even when turn on. have to off then on again.

General Comments:

Very low fuel consumption for a 3.0 compared to my previous land cruiser LJ70. Engine performance is very good, lots of torque from 1800rpm Suspension is too soft and body roll is too much. Needs a set of stiffer springs and shocks.
