Guy's been a while since my last post, sorry havent had the time to chat,

But Looking at a 92 3.1L TD intercooled Jackaroo, are they any good or not?
where do they rust?
Are their any "genetic" problems, like all the 3.1L the turbos arent set for Aust condtions or what ever?

Would you own one?

Thanks
Mik

Almost bought one a few years back, don't know much about problems, not too bad power wise but obviously nowhere near the newer 3.0td motor for power. Nothing wrong with the rest of the vehicle though, good hard working vehicles, maybe somone else has a 3.1td that could let us know more of any potential problems.

Sorry I only have a 92 Jackaroo v6 3.2 litre but if the 3.1 l diesel is as good as the v6( maybe better) I would readily recommend it. Mine has 230,000k on the clock and still runs great. Rust = nil. The vehicle I bought hadn,t seen much if any 4wding or beach work.Cost me $10,000 and money well spent.Loves sand but havent had a chance to try serious off road work yet.

As comfortable as any car and drives well on the open road.

Well worth looking into

It works a little better but still no luck over brick. In fifth gear I got it to stall which is more than I was getting before but still looking for more than it has now. My mechanic is going to try tightening? the LSD in his Pajero(1985) and maybe he'll be able to find out more about them.
It has improved the Diff but I think the previous owner wasn't as concerned about it as me so he has let it slip..... get it, SLIP hahahahahahahahaha
Sorry about that.
Thanks for the link to that website. A good website at last.
