Hi Matt, 15 to the 100 is massive! , have you owned it for all the 280k ,has it always drunk like a fish or gradually got like that or got like that overnight ?does it have standard size wheels & tyres ? , does it tow something huge or never tow , does it run ANY aftermarket chip or performance plug-in electronics ? , standard intake/airfilter ? ,original exhaust/mufflers ? , been serviced or messed with recently that has not been mentioned in 'already tried" section ? thanks stew
1)stick with litres to the 100 km please , is 15 to 100 now, used to be ???, tell me what the standard size wheel tyre combo as stated on tyre placard is , owed for a year-has regular oil changes? how many km s per year does it do ? at 280k it is way old, what mileage do you expect from it ?
A few things , wheel diameter has increased about 20mm,engine management cannot compensate for ratio change, ever had the tappet clearances checked and reset (I doubt it,huge job on KDJ , major reason why its never done ! ), has anyone scanned it for code ?, guessing / throwing random parts at it will never make a difference
