5x Toyota long life coolant (RM22 each) with distilled water for 1:1 golden ratio on 11.5L capacity according to manual.

The 'white elements' can be seen at 1, 2 spots in the engine block hose.

The mechanics put all 5L coolants prior water and used only 3-4L water for balance, which theoretically should fit another 6.5L!. Suspecting 1-2L still in tact or transformed into unknown materials along the pathway.

Leave a night with clean board underneath to spot any leaks. There's one; which later found as drops from unclean radiator drain plug during bleeding session that require a proper cleanup.

Freeplay, AC belt noise, coolant leakFreeplay - Check for (est. 4%) freeplay on steering wheel - steering pump checked and good, loose steering shaft (or intermediate shaft) might caused the issue. Tighten it for temporary fix and monitor. Result: Tighter steer control and less freeplay. Lucky the shaft is replacable for future fix.

Leaks - There’s leak on top of drain plug, dry coolant mark can be seen on the plug; it’s been done deliberately due to bad screw thread thus caused tad leaks around and below drain plug area. Tighten bit and monitor the outcome.

AC belt noise - Noise present when AC is on. It appear the belt fit by C's team is tad longer. Ali further tighten it - belt noise gone but new problem occurred (noticed it couple hour while drive home) the 2 bearings has contacted thus produced a bad bearing noise.

Vibration due to driveline angle - 2" lift issueA year old vibration issue due to driveline angle after 2” lift fixed with td5 stock double cardan front propshaft + flange replacement.

The one I had is worn and unaligned coupling position, pretty loose.

Earlier, few suggestion from LR members: wider angle coupling (allows wider radius), longer propshaft, panhard rod bush (fix wobble steering), etc but none gets me. 1,2 friends and forumers fixed theirs with double cardan and that's what beam me to take a leap, and none of I know propose it.

Good thing, its a straightforward fitting since mine is 03 MY def model consists of 60% td5; trans sytem, axle, fitments, etc.

Puma front propshaft is relatively longer, tdi tad longer too (due to axle position).

AC failure and gauges failureAC blown up - AC compressor bearing was noisy since fording day back in DEC,21. Fixed it in JAN but the noise return last 2 months. It finally gave out days ago, blown while driving (i.e burnt rubber smell), along the electrical hiccups cause the mileage, temp and gas gauges failed like a blown fuse.

Pullover and check the hood. It cooked, very much like jammed bearing issue. Cut the AC belt to stop compressor operation completely.

Check the gauges in HB, but all fuses seemed to work. The fix; mech do fuse bypass directly in the meter for the 3 gauges.

Do a complete check of AC and compressor replacement.
