The white smoke could be valve stem seals. The overheating could be a partially blocked radiator. Don't bother trying chemicals to clean it out. Take the radiator to a shop and have them professionally clean it. could be a blowen head gasket!

Indirect injection diesels have large radiators because of the massive heat loss in the idi cylinder head, so you most likely have a cooling fan or thermostat problem. Make sure you don't have air in the cooling system, especially if the engine sits higher than the original.

The thermostat on a 92 Pajero Diesel is on the left hand side and just above the pump. Remove the old thermostat and replace it with the same size.

Low coolant level? Thermostat not opening? System airbound? Radiator plugged or restricted? Water pump not circulating coolant Cooling fan not working?

If the diesel fuel "gels" then yes the filter will need replaced.

manufacturers were adding particulate filters as standard components of the diesel engine. The filters were designed to act as barriers, preventing the diesel emissions from being released into the air.

Change oil and filters regularly

Already been done. Diesel Particulate Filters and Diesel Exhaust Fluid.

No not the oil filters, just the fuel filters You don't have to. But I put oil in them when I can. Just the way I was told to do it when I first started working on engines.

The thermostat on a 1992 Ford F250 7.3 Diesel is changed by draining the radiator, removing the upper radiator hose, and unbolting the radiator housing. The thermostat can then be removed, a new gasket put in place, and the new thermostat installed.

Gasoline filters, no. Diesel fuel filters, yes in most cases.

dirty fuel filters for one !!

User Avatar

Depends on the year. Follow the top radiator hose to the engine. It will connect to the thermostat housing. The thermostat sits inside the housing.

One. Located near the back of the engine on the drivers side.

Salt will not dissolve in diesel fuel. However the salt may very well clogged fuel filters.

User Avatar

Yes as it does not have the lubrication of diesel. Also may damage fuel filter. Don't drive. Get quotes to clean out tank, filters etc but if you want to risk it and tank is not full you can fill with diesel and then run engine to use petrol/diesel mix. Get tank emptied by mechanic for safety. Change filters soon afterwards .
