On a recent trip to Tumut, the exhaust system on my AWD blew large holes in each of the two bends between the centre section and the muffler. The resulting racket was unreal, especially at 2000 rpm, and I had a very tiresome trip home.
Anyway, I've now had the entire centre and rear muffler...
Hi all, I'm tossing up between a KL AWD Verada and a KW XI Verada, I have never driven a AWD Magna/Verada, just wondering is the AWD much better to drive? is it worth paying a bit more for the AWD and the higher fuel costs? cheers
Wondering if anyone can help please? I have a KJ Verada auto with triptronic gears but I only ever really use the auto. I was driving the other day and left the handbrake on and when I got home the rear brake lights and the brake light on the windscreen stayed lit up even when the car...
I've just noticed I have what looks to be a leak from the transfer cases drain plug, (see pic). Its a viscous oil, mostly clear with a slight yellow tinge. Its not ATF or engine oil. In the pic theres a drop hanging from the plug.
I've no idea how long its been leaking, but the car was sitting...
Im thinking of getting a socket set for a liitle DIY around the car just to do simple stuff like fluid and filter changes, brake pads, rotors etc. What's the range of socket sizes that I would need for this car or cars in general. A 3/8 drive only offers up to 19mm and I know that the Oil drain...
Hi guys, what's the best aftermarket "bolt on" for awd TJ magna and price range..
Hi all, just after some other peoples experience if any of a 03 TJ awd 5sp tippy transmission that sometimes automatically goes into tippy mode and manually change through the gears 1-5 no issues (which works faultless) when in D. The D light is still faintly on but is in tippy mode.. Then its...
Hi I assume the stock rims on my AWD KL are alloy and therefore much lighter than steel would be. Can someone who knows please confirm?
Exciting news; I've decided to upgrade the KL with a 380 motor. Well, exciting for me anyway, lol.
The new 380 motor has only 41k's on it, but thats not the reason for the swap.
If you've read my past posts you will know that I've found the 6G74, 3.5 engine struggles a bit with shifting the...
I found this under the car the other day (under the engine) and I can't for the like of me figure out where it came from
My car is a 2003 TJ AWD Magna and is running fine
It is some sort of a rubber grommet and a lot of it is very fragile.
I am hoping some here knows what it...
Questions for the AWD members who've had 380 cams fitted.
I'm considering this as an easy way to improve performance.
Already did the HM headers and a better exhaust. Not looking for "hot" cams or a special ECU tune, just a simple 380 cam install.
I'm just not sure whether the benefit will be...
EOI for AMC////AWD stickers! I've asked maggie3.5 if he could get some AWD stickers like the AMC////380 and state ones. I know of at least 3 WA members who would want a pair each, we need at least 10 to make the order.
So post here if you would like some :)
New here so I hope to see some of you around a bit more.
I'm hoping somebody on here may be able to steer me in the right direction with an issue I'm having at the moment. I was driving the car when I stopped at an intersection. Nothing out of the ordinary. The car was still in drive...
Hi All - my 2005 TW magna went in for a repair to the exhaust and came back with some pretty dodgy looking pipework underneath it. I don't think the workshop put the VR-X AWD exhaust pipework into it and used a modified second hand standard magna pipework. Lots of welding and silver frost.... I...
I stopped at round about and when start to move i hear some wierd sound from under the car. I thought it could be tail shaft. So I continue driving another one kilometer and parked the car. When I came back, it couldnt move front or back. Luckily machenic was across the road. He checked the car...
As the title suggests my AWD has developed a taste for 20amp fuses. This is fuse number 15 of the engine bay fuse box.
I've blown two recently. But worse still its melted part of the fuse box - around the fuse socket.
No recent addins or electrical mods, no recent bumps, crunches, smoke or...
My rear window switch broke and now I can't close it. I tried closing it with central switch but didn't work, so I don't know if it is rear switch or something else. Anyway, I want to close it manually by sorting cables if possible then I look for replacement switch.
Or can I just replace it...
I found when I drive in slow traffic or stop at traffic single longer the temperature gauge rise one bar from the middle ( I never allowed to rise more than 1 bar and always turn AC or heater on to lower). I checked both fans spins when it start to rise and become normal (in the middle) as soon as...
I found a open hole on transfer case or centre diff while cleaning. Can anyone tell me what is missing?
Is it missing bolt, rubber cape or hose? (please see the attached picture)
Hi all just wondering what is involved in this swap, dual tip to single tip. Any issues with the mountings? Is it just bolt on or is there welding? Does it fit with the standard rear bumper?
Note this a question from NZ and we (I believe) only ran 1 model AWD at any one time.
