    ok so passed roadworthy, and mechanic says smoke is condensation and nothing to worry about.

    Doesn't seem right but I guess thats a win!

      So we got it back from roadworthy got plates and drove it around a bunch and it didn't smoke at all for the whole time.

      I guess the 20w60 and stop smoke worked, great success!

        These things are great value, if they had Toyota badges on them this would be worth $25 grand.

            I think you mean tweaker in relation to glass bbq.

              Tweak or tweaker may refer to: Tweaker, or alternate spelling "tweeker", an individual who uses stimulants, most commonly methamphetamine and amphetamine. Tweak, a street name for the drug In computing.

                Things are going well, the car is solid and reliable. He's got all the money donated to buy all the 4wd super center stuff, I called them up and paid for it all over the phone. They have arranged with him to do a tour of their shop/warehouse and will have a bloke on hand to answer all his questions and give advice.

                Yesterday was some of the funnest shit i've seen on the internet in forever. He go's out with his mate and decides to do some 4x4'ing (which hes never done before). Promptly gets bogged at the first sign of a puddle and they spend the next hour and a half trying to dig themselves out and jam shit under the wheel while 250 people in live chat heckle them relentlessly. After watching this at my work laughing my ass off i realize they aint ever getting out so i leave work, go grab my boy from grandmas and drive out there to drag them out to the cheers of the same 250 viewers. If you got a bit of spare time on a lazy sunday give it a watch, its funny as hell.

                i get there at about the 1 hour 18min mark, i especially like the comment from one chatter that I "look like a competent Peter Griffin"

                  hopefully they will remember for the next 699 times they get bogged and need to use one...

                    My brother has one of these and it was also a smoker.
                    We replaced the PCV valve on the rocker cover and the problem disappeared, try that before you spend money on other things. It was $25 from Repco from memory.

                      I reckon they might need a support truck when they head out of town. Things will go very badly for them otherwise.

                            Basically yes, Triton wagon. All have super select. Early ones are 3.0 V6, later models are 2.5 turbo diesel. I can't complain about mine.
