It also had a lot of vibration, especially at idle, which I thought was funny - given that the valves should have been adjusted three times by then! A lot of...

I can quite clearly hear mine go in and out of 4H, even if it’s just started up (but noisier) and I select it.

Just because if the vacuum source is lost it defaults to 4wd when...

I use Morey’s Diesel Smoke Killer which has an injector cleaner and cetane improver.

Perhaps tell him to stick to BP ultimate and run a few tanks of the Morey’s through.

Have you had the vehicle since new?

Perhaps the dash has been out before and was badly reinstalled. I’d be very surprised if it came from the factory like that.

My NT does this.

I come to a stop using brakes, select neutral, pull on handbrake, take foot of brakes, then select park.

I can’t stand them.
