Having problems with your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser ?

My 2006 Prado has a rear differential clunk when starting after overnight parking in freezing conditions. There is resistance against forward motion but not reverse. Clunking starts after 800 metres and continues (depending how cold it is) for 4km, thne stops and car runs free. Any views on possible causes and solutions (local dealer utterly useless).

Answers :

Why is the dealer useless?

Has the dealer even suggested the diff oil be changed?

The first item I would look at is the diff oil. Have it changed and at the same time have the diff unit checked for leaks. You must use the correct spec product as specified by Toyota and you should use the best available. The best diff oils in the grade you will require are expensive so do not skimp on the oil quality and use a cheap one.
