Filters on a Toyota.

Recommended Posts

Have just come back from my local Toyo garage. Had the 30th service. 

That included the fuel filer clean and check. Have put a snap in of condition of Fuel filter. A heads up if anyone thinks they go on forever your dreaming. You might get 50th from one but that's about it.

Also put in a snap of A/C filter that was cleaned 5th km ago.

Both have been changed.

My Diesel Tuna 2.8. It held up better than my last Tuna that was almost buggered at 30th. That's why I made sure this one was checked on it's due date.

The ac filter contamination is a result of the environment (during burning season?) where the vehicle has been used. Can only wonder of the cause of the tear. Was the air filter in the same condition?

Trump had a noun/pronoun for areas with such environments.

 

Fuel filter contaminate appears to be water. Try changing your gas station.

That ac filter can't be right?

 

I check mine about every 2 months and feel like i am a bit ocd cleaning it when there is a bit of fluff in it.

 

I left one in my old vigo for about 20k and it never looked even close to that i reckon they swept the floor with it then stuck a screwdriver through it !

 

Fuel filter i can understand.

I think the reason my A/C filter was a tad dirty was I had done a few trips to BKK. Normally it's very clean. The rip in it was caused by me when they took the filter out and my finger went through it as I lobbed it in the bin, it was that buggered. As stated it was cleaned 5th km ago as I have my lump serviced at 5th intervals and not the 10 recommended. Normally change it for new one every 10th or so, Max 15th.

Not a trace of water in the filter. That's one of the reasons to clean and check at 30th intervals. It was just dirt from fuel.

As above post I have used it in BKK a few times so more than likely the reason for the dirt in A/C filter.

It's even worse if I go to Pattaya.

Your dashboard will tell you if there is water in the filter housing..Water settles below the filter..

Dash light will only come on when it's at a certain level.

 

If anyone cares to look in the service Book, it will tell you it should be cleaned and checked at 30th KM, regardless of any light showing up. Of cause no <deleted> does because they know better than Toyota or other makes.

 

Bit like a few post ago when I stated that the Auto gear box should have an oil change at 40th KM. Lots said 100th was ok. Best of luck is all I can say.

If you care to look (More than Likely not) you would have seen that the filter had NO water in it not a drop. Whatever it was time to check it. Other wise one could have ended up like you did on your Vigo with a buggered/clogged fuel filter.

My Vigo filter housing never had water in it. My Vigo had one filter change in 11+ years with 135.000km on the clock when I sold it..

A clogged fuel or air filter will be noticed under your foot, I never had any problems under my foot, the filter is engineered to get very dirty before the engine notices anything...

Dirt doesn't emulsify. But water and [refined] oils do.

You also commented that your earlier Toyota suffered problems after 30,000 km for the same problem. Rarely seen that level of contamination outside a check weigh failure. Even on 40-50 year old road vehicles.

Changing your local gas station would be a good idea.

 

What caused the hole in your a.c. filter?

Easy and cheap to replace the fuel filter each 10K along with the oil & oil filter

Did notice a smoother transmission change after replacing the gearbox oil at 50k.......
