has anyone seen the new ad for toyota servicing with steve irwin?
when he finishes his drive in a new prado turbo diesel(i think)a young kid points out the smoke coming from under his bonet.
yes looks like steve cooked his dinner on the intercooler.
now what would toyota say for a claim if we all went and blocked our intercoolers with some food in silver foil.
would you like fries with that?

Hiya Jim
Like all these adds, it's truthfull and accurate in everyway.

I do this all the time and I have seen all the rest of the 4wd community do it also.
Thats why they put it in the add.
Same as that Prado on the seesaw thingy hanging over the edge of the cliff.
It's OK though the helicopter will catch it if the traction control thingy does not work as it's supposed to.
I carry a helicopter in my recovery kit for just these occasions.
Thats what Baz forgot to pack the other day, His helicopter or doesn't Ford recomend them as a recovery item ?

By the way haven't tried to cook fries on mine as yet.

Didn't need it, I packed my Muddy Girl Bog Hole Recovery Unit (MGBHRU).
Read my equipment list under rig details.
Worked a treat and cost less to run than the helicopter.
I was away up north, If I had been aware of Baz's prediciment at the time I would have sent my MGBHRU up to help.

Can't say I've seen this one yet.

Does this mean I can leave the primus at home now?????

Jeez these Prado TD's are good!!! Soon there will be a button on the dash that you press and out comes a steaming hot coffee!

could you please do me a favour as your prado is still under waranty.
go buy a huge fish and wrap it in al foil.
stick it on your intercooler for half a day or untill the fish is cooked or your turbo is cooked.
if the turbo does die go to your local toyota dealer and see if they will coveer it under waranty.LOL
if it dosnt cook because of the cold air coming in please ask them how steve gets his piping hot.
cheers

If you are referring to that square part at the top of the engine just under the bonnet (I have not seen the ad remember) then you would be quite correct in wondering just how you could cook a foil wrapped fish as this is the INTAKE and sucks COOL air into the intercooler. This had occurred to me too. Think I'll pack the Prinus after all!

What happened to truth in advertising!!!

Cheers
Muddy

Sorry Jimmy my mate , but Muddy doe is right , Block it all you like , most that will happen in the the air intake temp will rise which will efect ponies and nothing else .

But guys I think he actually used it as a grill plate , the heat beads were underneath it lol
