G'Day from South Australia

Postby michael_sa on Sun Sep 14, 2014 3:06 pm

Howdy all,

I've recently purchased a pre-loved 2001 Frontera. Auto with the 3.2Lt V6.
My previous four wheel drive (which I still have (for the moment)) is a '93 3.0 Lt Turbo diesel Toyota Surf.
Looking forward to becoming a part of your community and sharing info.
Will post up some better pics soon.

She has a few little niggly issues going on - Air con bearing is noisy and she keeps throwing up O2 sensor faults - usually 0154, but this morning 0151 (iirc) appeared :axe:

Anyway, I'm looking forward to interacting on here, I joined another Fronty forum a few days ago but there doesn't seem to be much action there :wtf: so here I am :thumbup:

Regards,

Michael

Welcome to the Forum mate, def a nice looking truck there.
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here
