hi bil and netti
do you mean 19,000km's or 190,000km's 20054d4 ????? as 19000km's does not seem to be enough for its age ??

Hey Bill and Netti,
The valve clearances are not likely to be a cause for lack of power at 19,000km but it doesn't hurt to do the first check at 20,000km.
Two ton is a big van for hilux to pull, i'm not saying too big but it's gunna take some shifting, just make sure your expectations aren't too high.
Make sure it gets a fresh fuel filter and air filter.
They respond REALLY well to a 2.5-3.0 inch mandrell bend exhaust, which is the next mod i'd be looking at if i was you.
