I've got a 93 2.8D Hilux with 140 000ks on the clock. I change the oil and filter every 5000 and will probably change the fuel filter every 50000. I had the timing belt done and at 110 000 the gasket went on the injector pump meaning that got a full overhaul.

Is there anything else I should do with these miles on the clock?

I here alot about injector cleaning, if I'm getting good economy do I need it? Cheers from the inland Pilbara.

Hello Brian.First i think you should change fuel filters every 20.000km and maybe sooner considering the fuel we get in the Pilbara.If the car is running smooth not blowing much smoke and you have good fuel economy injectors are probably fine for now.You should definetly change oil in the gearbox and transfer case,diffs,and it wouldn't hurt to check grease in CV joints and free weeling hubs.Considering the heat up here i would suggest that you change your coolant, hoses, termostat and check aloy outlets as they corrode from the inside out.Check your universal joints as well.

I agree with Goran - 50,000kms is too long for a diesel filter change. I've had a Peugeot (car) diesel for 21 years and 270,000kms. Changed the oil and oil filter every 5,000 and the fuel and air filters every 20,000. Original injectors have never been serviced. If the economy is good then the injectors are probably ok. Don't forget the air filter - a diesel sucks in much more air than a petrol motor.
