Avicia, have the pump timing checked, fuel mixture corrected if necessary, instal low pressure exhaust & remove black plastic trombone from air cleaner & fit foam element & see how much better it goes!

I had the Mazda 4 door 4WD ute - same class of vehicle - had a lot of great bush trips in that thing. Traded it for a TD Jackaroo after 9 years and about 180k- one thing re service life .....I've come to see them as 'tricked-up" commercial workhorses - IMO they don't build the basic vehicle for a very long life.
So, I reckon it pays as a caring owner to give them plenty of TLC (commercial users often don't) - good quality oils and filters - maybe UP the viscosities now she's well 'run-in' - I would toss some STP into the gearbox - especially the transfer case too - regular servicing....reckon it pays.
