Toyota campaign 1KET-015 including Hilux

Reading many posts regarding D4D Injector Seal Washer leaks, Leading to Combustion leakage into Lubrication system, Oil Contamination, Oil Pickup Strainer blockage, Engine Oil starvation and ultimate engine failure.

Many D4D owners downunder should be aware that Toyota NZ recommends Injector seals & o-rings be replaced at 45,000 KLM intervals, many similar issues have been reported in NZ also.

Looks like MR T also has a campaign dealing with this and related problems on Hilux & Prado elsewhere:

Look forward to a similar response with loyal customers in Australia & New Zealand.

Very interesting, my 06 has the dreaded white smoke start up when parked nose down on a slope, not to mention very much down on power, a loss of over 100k's per tank of fuel and a ever present sound of injectors tapping! I was planning on taking it to Toyota for the injector diagnosis, might see if I can find out whether they are aware of this?

Couple of silly questions...why doesn't the vin range include the earlier 2006/late 2005 hilux?
Also, does this 'free' campaign only apply to vehicles under warranty??
