    Sir StockEngine,

    Ni minsan, wala akong narinig na naging issue ang 2.7, 3.5 & 4.0 V6..

    Ang issue, malakas ang FC, pero breakdown ng engine.. wala naman,

    Bihira nga sa thread na nagkaroon ng breakdown si 2.7 fortuner, 3.5 alphard, even si FJ or si LC150 V6..

    Kung sa province at hindi naman reside sa NCR... ramdam ang FC efficiency...lalo kung long driving..

    NCR reside.. pag gas engine at hindi issue ang FC.... kahit traffic at extreme idling.

    Pag Gas Engine Owner naman, ang simple reason bakit kumukuha ang Gas Variant,
    Maintenance Friendly,

    Sa Diesel Kasi, mas sensitive, buti dito sa pinas, walang DPF, yan ang disadvantage ng diesel sa ibang bansa na nilagay sa mga Diesel engine models na based at similar sa heavy hauling truck, for engine emission reasons...

    Oh man! I have high regard for these japanese inline4 cylinder gasoline engines. I think most of them are bullet proof.

    diesel...
    change oil and oil filter only, during pms of diesel engine.
    no hi-tension systems.. no sparking plugs..

    two reasons why gas engines are bought:
    1. cheaper showroom price than their diesel counterparts.
    2. eco-friendly emissions.
    3. mas tahimik and less vibrations (daw).

    my opinion.

    You forgot about diesel fuel filters which need changing more frequently.

    Modern engines change plugs over long periods now. Some need changing only at 60k km while some at 120k km.

    from my innova's owner's manual.

    while the gas engine's fuel filter has a recommended 80,000 km replacement schedule,
    the diesel engine's fuel filter does not have to be replaced periodically.
    i am waiting for the warning light to tell me to replace my D4d's fuel filter.

    does anyone still clean, re-gap and re-install their sparking plugs?

    Old school na masyado yan, doc. You can buy platinum-tip plugs for less than 200 each nowadays. Applicable eto for 2000s era cars except those that require iridium plugs. Better to just buy new than reuse plugs.

    New cars require longer periods for plug replacement. For some turbo gas cars, itís like 120k km change interval but each plug costs around 1k each.

    in my rig's case, the recommended frequency was every 10k kilometers before the advent of the cleaner euro 4 diesels.

    right now w/ the standard use of the euro 4 and euro 5 diesel grades, you can further extend the lives of those fuel filters.

    back in the late 90s,
    i forgot to service my diesel besta's fuel filter schedule (36K km?).
    tinirik ako, as i was just entering the gate. symptoms of fuel starvation. we had to push it in.
    replacing the filter easily did the trick.
    "walang patawad. i missed it by just 4000 km..."
