Hi I am after a supplier of filters for a 3 litre Hilux diesel. Oil and Air filters. Toyota and Repco have the air filter at $46.00. Want a cheap alternative please. Any help would be great. Am in North East Victoria and can pick up in Melb, Bendigo, Benalla and Wang.

I was having trouble getting hold of oils that I wanted so I went straight to the Castrol distributor in Queanbyan, while I was there found they also sold air filters as well as oil filters and oils. Pick an air filter up for $26 for our Prado. A lot more expensive at Toyota.

If time isn't an issue maybe there is a place like this nearby.

Hi floyd,Toyota say that their original oil filters are more expensive but they are superior to the other crap on the market. They had a big push about 2 years ago, saying they had a lot more and better filtering paper in them , regards Michael

Floyd,

You guys get me, next you will be asking for a siupllier of a cheap engine. Don't muck around with another filter, the Toyota ones are the go. Pay the extra and save your motor.

Did I ask for an inferior quality filter? No I asked for a cheaper filter. I never mentioned that I was prepared to compromise quality.

Would you pay for a $300.00 rear light lens assembly when you can buy the same in an aftermarket packet for $75.00.

I have never seen documented evidence of an engine failure caused by the fitting of an aftermarket filter.

By the way how does the 900 lb whinch on the prado work? I would have thought that it was aa little underpowered for a car of your size.

Moose, Toyota filters are made in Japan, the Sakura at DK are made in SE Asia. They have the same colour paint and are made to look genuine.
