just to add from my last post,,,,if you maintain them properly they will rarely go wrong!

i think i don't go through ball joints & things like that is because there are grease nipples everywhere & i go through them roughly every month!

they've never failed there M.O.T's but like i said, i think it's due to regular low cost maintenance rather than doing noting & waiting for it to ware out!

LOOK AFTER THEM & THEY WILL LOOK AFTER YOU!!!!!

pajero 2.8 td, coming back home noticed a bit of steam coming out the bonnet,pulled over temp gauge high, rad hose above the thermostat, had blown off, put the hose back on, rad was empty checked the small pipe from the expansion bottle to the rad blew through it was solid, the waterway through the expansion bottle was solid with what looked like mud cleaned this out, topped the water up  to get home, not overheating at the moment touch wood, will give the rad a good flush tomorrow, hopefully not done damage .

[size=12]Hi Ive had my 1994 2.8 lwb auto for 6 years
      ive changed a couple of light bulbs,  serviced it with new oil air fuel filter, transmission oil,  every year, keep radiator filled with distilled water only, helps to prevent engine rust, the water is always nice and clear, had 4 new tyers at £60 each. very good seconds, purchased an EGR blanking plate, £15. new full exhaust system, i tow an 1800kg twin wheel base caravan  about 3 times a year,     we made regular trips from surrey to liverpool. 500 mile return trip, averaged 28 mpg, not with the caravan lol ,  not legal. but she will still sit at 100mph for miles, although not recommended lol,  i undersealed it, properly. changed 1 small pipe that leaked for the air con £22, then regassed it £45 ,,,, put diesel in it and air in the tyres . not bad for 6 years. i love mine and will keep till she rusts away. its now comming up to 20 years old, and ive only got minor rust now, so i think i will have her for a while yet,    BUY A GOOD ONE AND LOOK AFTER IT, AND IT WILL LOOK AFTER YOU!. Very Happy
i would recommend them. hope this helps. byeeeeeeeeeee    Wink

have had my 95 paj for 7 years,when i bought it it kept cutting out,the dealer said oh it is dirt in the fuel line..i fell for it and put up with the fault for a while,then i found out the symptons other people were having was because of the pump seal,so i had a new pump fitted..cost £400 back then and since that,its cost me nothing exept for service parts and a water pump..until now Crying or Very sad  the head gasket has gone and possibly the head with it,but i am going to get it fixed as it is the best car i have ever had..i had a range rover 4.0 petrol before that and it cost an absolute fortune in parts and broke down frequently with air suspension and ecu problems..never again!! the only other problem is that it wont change up to top gear until i reach about 50mph and i always seem to been doing about 48mph on my journey to work Laughing ..is this normal for paj's??

Only had my first paj for three weeks now. I was lucky in the fact that the previous owner had maintained it regardless of cost and it needed quite a lot of front suspension work for the mot before i got it. He stopped using it for a while which made the 4x4 select sticky (it's fine now it's used). Otherwise the sunroof sticks (motor works just needs runners greasing), the rear door windows won't work (haven't even looked into that yet) and squeaky front brakes which were an easy cure (some red grease on the pins). It's been a learning curve but the old gal is a lot better than the chrysler it replaced and since removing the egr valve the mpg is better too.

Ive had mine for just under 2 years now its done 170k and if im honest cost me quite a bit

4 x a/t falken tyres  £85 each
Injectors £140
Welding
New exhaust front to back £95
Recon starter £70
New belts £30
New fuel lines front to back £130
Servicing £150 Thats 3 services
Front brake pads £35
Rear lights failed so to get them sorted was £45

My mate who does most of the work on it for me as i just dont get time said its 1 of the best shoguns hes seen underneath in a long time. He said even newer ones have alot more rust than my truck  Very Happy

Im sure theres somethin missing from the list just cant think wot lol
Althogh ive spent a fair bit on her i really cant bare to part with it.

Its smoking like a steam train at the mo so just trying to sort that out. If i can solve it i will be keeping it for years. Alhough am definatly considering getting a newer one with a few less miles. Means i can service it properly instead of tryng to path up after someone else who hasnt looked after it.

The kids love it and even the mrs who is learning to drive now says she wants one wen she passes her test.

Ive also been looking at the delica as its bigger and with 4 young kids need the space. Only interested in a deli as its the same as shogun/ pajero.

I think ive ranted long enough lol Laughing

I have had  a 94 swb 2.8td which now has 342k k/ms on the clock for the last 9 years
I service it regularly 3 times a year!!!  

FAULTS.....

Usual glow plugs..... 2 sets
odd steering linkage for the mot's ( That is all it seems to fail on )
tyres
2x batterys
starter motor ( what a pig that was to change !! )
1 minor electrical fault ( fixed thanks to the lovely people on this forum )


Apart from that it has been a pleasure to own,

My pajero is still new to me, even when I just realized I've been driving it since 5th january this year, 10 months, and 15,000km's.

I've had very little trouble with it, just a blown head gasket. I decided to do both at the same time. Otherwise, just some oil changes and such. Of course I've lifted it and fitted 35's under it.

Sadly I can't post pictures, because I've got too little posts, but I'm sure you'll see it later on the forums
