You will have a 4JH1. The 4JJ1 wasn’t till around 2006-2007

Thanks Paul,

This vehicle is new to me and is SERIOUSLY under powered. I can put my flat to the floor and it barley moves,

I can smell a slight diesel smell the exhaust which I believe to be unburnt. Could the tappets be miles out of spec and causing incomplete combustion on one or more cylinders?.

Where would one find the process with pictures preferably to cheap valve gap?.

Do I need any special tools to do this?.

Could it be a really blocked exhaust cat converter?. I am looking at replacing it with a 3 inch system but its all $$ at the moment>

Thanks in advance

They are very underpowered, valve clearances are probably the least likely thing to be causing the issue, but worth checking anyway, no special tools needed. Check your air filter as well. EGR could be choking it up a fair bit too, usually get a buildup of crap through the inlet manifold. Being 100% reliant on sensors there could be an issue there more likely. MAF, TPS etc
