I have a PX 3.2 Manual 4x4.
Just clocked over 6000 k's.
On several occasions my "check power train" warning light has come on and subsequently put the vehicle into limp home mode.

I have recently travelled 14000kms across Australia in my 2012 PX Twin Cab Ranger, the majority on dirt roads and found the seats lacking in superior comfort. If anyone has replaced their seats I'd appreciate the brands, cost and comments. I know of the Ricaro reputation. Thank you.
Has anyone had experience with the Aeroklas caonpy from Ford? I have seen many comments on diferent types and their failings but nothing much on these ones. Not sure about the ABS that they are made from either. Just a form of plastic.
Needs a bit of chronology here. First problem 6 months ago was the low-beam halogen on the passenger side went out (burned out filament). Plugged in a new halogen and it too popped the low beam filament as soon as turned on. While troubleshooting this, I also noticed the passenger side halogen fog...

I know Sports Drive auto is required but it seems you loose 6th gear.
You can select 6th gear Sports drive manually but is this harming the transmission on long flat roads?
Thanks in advance
Hi guys. First time poster looking for some ideas. My PK ranger has had a loss of power for a while now, since about 100,000km and has now done 140,000km.

Anyone know if this is normal? Between about 1500-2000 RPM from my 3.2, under load or overrun comes a whistle (not turbo whine that I have heard before anyway) or hiss from the air intake. If I floor it, the whistle goes -instantly-, it's only under slight load, slight overrun. Very faint or...

Brought a new Wildtrak manual at the end of May 2014. First day of delivery I noted what felt like a misfire / jerking on acceleration after cruising at a light throttle setting. This is also apparent while going around a "round-about" and going to accelerate off at your exit.
