  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Technical Archive

    I just happened to stumble across this archive of AWD technical articles/threads: http://www.aussiemagna.com/forums/archive/index.php?f-73.html Due to the change over to a new server, a lot of the old articles were no longer available(or I could not search properly). There is a total of...

  1. Known higher mileage issues

    Hey all, Awd tl owner here. My one owner car has 182000 ks on it now, and I'm starting to experience a few minor issues as it ages. The car has always been serviced every six months, with bits replaced as soon as needed. It's general condition is good and it is garaged and well cared for...

  2. Earthing Point Horn

    G'day all, Could someone please post a picture of the earthing point/bolt on the right hand side of a TL Magna, where the horn bracket attaches too. I recently had some work carried out and and from memory I am sure there was an earth wire attached to the earth bolt with the horn. I have had a...

  4. Engine Oil: what's best?

    Like my other thread about transmission and TC oils; I now want to understand what the recommended engine oils are and the pros and cons. The AWD is coming up for a service and I notice that the oil is dark black. I'm surprised because I had this done only about 8000 kms ago just after I bought...

  5. How many TJ VRX AWD's are out there?

    So, in the last few months of the TJ series 2 run, the AWD option was available for across the range of Magnas and Veradas. I've only ever seen one AWD VRX (Dec 02 -Apr 03) from that period and I'm guessing they would be one of the rarest Magna's ever made? Does anyone have one or know the...

  6. Running hot up Toowoomba range

    Hi all, Travelled Brisbane-toowoomba yesterday for a Chrissy get together in our one-owner tl Awd. Was a steamy day but not exceptional early on. Noticed as we drove up the range that the temp gauge moved up from its usual just under halfway point, to about three quarters up. Watched it...

  7. AWD Transmission failure

    My 2005 KW Verada GTVI transmission developed a grinding noise a couple of weeks ago. I had the RACV tow it to my local mechanic and gave it a road test and came to the conclusion that there was some flaring. The noise had disappeared but it turned out to be a failure in the overdrive unit. Lots of...

  10. Time interval for TC/diff oil change?

    I'm not using my cars very much and only putting k's on them very slowly. Does anyone know what the change intervals should be for the transfer case and rear diff oils in terms of time? The book says 45k's, but at this rate that may take another few years. TIA

  11. AWD stalling at idle

    Hi guys, just after some advice. Our TL AWD, which we've had for more than 10 years, occasionally stalls when idling e.g. waiting at traffic lights. It just cuts out and you need to re-start it, but it re-starts straight away. We had some issues a couple of years ago with stuttering while...

  12. AWD Triptronic Shifter

    Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone knows if the Auto Triptronic Shifter from a TJ or TH is a straight swap/plug and play with a TL AWD? The Chrome on mine is buggered like most and, I like the more positive feel of the metal assembly from the TH/TJ series than the plastic assembly.

  13. WhiteAWD returns with another whiteAWD plus 380swap

    I'm not a young man, and probably emblematic of the Magna driving caricature. As I look back my big regret was trading my AWD for a VZ Monaro, it was a fine car but wrecked by coilovers, from a suspension company known for getting things wrong. The ride was so awful on the Monaro it was replaced by...

  14. HM headers and Lukey exhaust?

    One difference i noticed immediately between the FWD Verada and the AWD is the perceived loss of power, (due to all the extra weight on the AWD I believe). Most of the time it's not very noticeable but occasionally, such as when overtaking, it's really apparent. I'm interested in any simple mod...

    Hi all, I changed the ATF in my KJ AWD and yes there was a bit of the wave spring stuck to the sump plug, no bits of the wave spring have damaged the gearbox yet as it still drives well, has anyone had the wave spring replaced in their AWD ? if so what is the cost, cheers

  17. Steering rack removal AWD compared to FWD

    Hi all I want to replace the steering rack in my AWD KJ Verada with a rack from a KL AWD, I have replaced the rack in 2 FWD Verada's I have owned, just wondering is it much more of pain to do this in a AWD Verada/Magna? I just see the transfer case as making this job more of a pain, anyone have...
