You sometimes can get a little bit better performance if you replace the fuel filter and fill it up with ATF or diesel kleen, but even then it's not very much. All it does is clean the fuel system out.I don't have any experience with diesels, but if it's like a gasser you won't see much vroom vroom after changing oil and air filters. Was the truck running rough and you were expecting the filter changes to correct this?
If it doesn't have any trouble starting and seems to run fine there's not much you can do. Maybe run a compression check and see how much life the engine's got left. Also is it lifted by any means?It's been slow ever since iv owned it for 2 months and no it doesn't have trouble starting
Im guessing this was transferred from the mini truck forum. When you say its slow, what are you comparing it against? Im trying to understand if it has something wrong or if its just not meeting your expectations.it's still slow asf and I don't know why any help

Normally a 1KZ TE would keep most people happy, my friends have one the same as yours and they love it.
Is it making any smoke or doing anything weird?
Badman9 is having power problems with his Surf also.
Hi all, 2000 KZN185 Hilux Surf here with the 1KZ-TE engine. I had a problem with an occasional check engine light flashing on for a second or so, but it made no difference to driveability or performance. Doing the diagnostic port pin jumper, the check engine light would give code 12 (12 = No...forum.ih8mud.com
Sweet and I have a boost gauge and it's running 10psiPut a boost gauge on it and make sure your turbo is actually working. Inspect the turbo also. Check your engine codes. Make sure the boost sensor is still connected. Download the 1KZTE engine repair manual and start reading...it's all in there.
