    What are you trying to find out?
    Using a DMM (digital
    multi-meter)turning the key on and probing the little metal ends of
    the fuse as they stick out of the fuse box will tell you if the fuse
    is Ok or not, and leaving the key off after all fuses test ok and then
    retesting fuses tells you which fuse is live all the time.
    The
    rating of the fuses should be in arabic numerals.....10,15,20,30

Subject : engine cutting out
Hi I have a 2000 reg 2.7 auto terrano. It has recently started to cut
out when I select drive or reverse? It also cut out once while
driving. The management light is now on altho I do not know code as

      • Subject :
        Alright, now you should definitely replace the charcoal filter, since,
        as you tested, it went alright at first after you disconnected it.
        Logically, the absence of the filter allowed more air circulation..but
        that may then be too much air ingestion if it is not constricted by
        the filter medium. So, to attain the right balance of air, replace
        the filter with a new one..and don't blow it out again....

    Get the computer scanned for the codes which will tell you what the

    after the filter change, maybe some crud got through into the

    What do
    you mean about the charcoal filter being blown out? How did you blow

  • Subject :
    There should be two hoses leading from the front of the engine near
    the thermostat housing to the heater matrix at the firewall. One is
    the input and one the return. Disconnect both hoses from at the
    thermostat housing and replace them with one hose connecting both the
    inlet and outlet on the thermostat housing. You could use one of the
    heater hoses if you disconnec it at the heater matrix as well and loop
    it. The coolant then cannot circulate through the heater matrix. You
    can still drive the vehicle without a problem.
    Are you sure it is
    a leaking matrix and not just a leaking connection at the firewall?
    Check that first.

Subject : PR50 Speedo
Hi I've a 97 2.4 Diesel Auto PR50 Pathfinder in the US, R3M Terrano in
Japan & the Speedo has stopped working.

I took it to a dealer
in France today who said they sender is working but couldn't go any
further because they didn't have any circuit or wiring
diagrams.

Does anyone know if & where these are obtainable
from?

I've isolated the wire that feeds the speedo behind the
instrument pack, does anyone know if that is an analogue or pulse
signal?

Thanks in advance

    If you read through this site you would find numerous references to
    this particular model's problems with the printed circuit board in the
    dash having breaks occurring over time causing intermittent faults on
    most of the instruments, but particularly the speedo and tacho. There
    is a UK firm that will work on them and repair them..google is your

    What year? Which gearbox? How do you engage 4wd? How do you disengage
    it? Which engine? Do you have a limited slip differential rear axle?
    When was the last time the rear axle fluid was changed if you do have
    an LSD? Did you use the right fluid for LSD? Have you greased the slip
    yoke on the drive shafts front and rear (if you have greaseable slip
    joints)? Have you checked the play in the universal joints? Ever had
    problems with the brakes? Does judder rise and fall in intensity with
    speed change? Can you "drive through it" ie going faster or slower
    eliminates the judder? Any warning lights showing on the dash? Did
    this start after any particular event ie did you engage 4WD for the
    first time after a long spell in 2wd?
    The most obvious is worn
    out bushes in the rear radius arms, those large steel rods that
    connect the body to the axle and stop it moving backwards and
    forwards. Google "death wobble in pathfinder" It is not too hard to
    have the bushes replaced except it needs a large hydraulic press so
    probably best to leave it to a mechanic that has one. You can buy
    replacement bushes, jack the vehicle up and remove the links/radius
    arms, then take them to him to do the pressing.

Has anybody got an idea what may be causing a heavy clonk from the
front of my Patrol I have had it looked at by a garage on the ramp but
they cant find anything wrong.It happens when you go from lock to lock
and sometimes over a bump,you can feel the clonk through the floor

    Two possible things; the most likely is metal to metal contact on the
    "wheel stops" which is limits your steering. usually they have nylon
    pads, these wear, them it grauches on full lock when the suspension
    moves up and down. Solved with a dab of grease on the stops (4 of
    them, two each side, for and aft.
    Raise both front wheels off the
    ground and turn the steering onto full lock, you'll see what limits
    the travel, and you will also see bright metal caused by this
    rubbing.
    Second possibility if it truly is a clonk, is worn sway
    bar (also known as anti roll bar bushes, both those on the suspension
    A arms and on the bar to chassis mounts.
    These are easily
    replaced, should take less than one hour, buy poly bushes nd look on
    youtube for instructional videos

Subject : nissan terrano 2002 3.0L
Hi I wondered if anyone can help me? My terrano's engine management
light keeps coming on, with loss of power, smoking unburnt fuel out
the back! Been in garage now on and off since end of november! When
been put on diagnostics by my garage and my local nissans error code
P7-F timing FB has come up a pump timing control system fault.my
mechanic has replaced the solanoid on the diesal pump and had the ecu
on it sent off with no fault found! Nissan have also checked all
wiring to pump and from ECM and checked lives/earths for pump all ok!
they have said fault is either with pump or ecm.ecm has now been sent
away for testing and surely if main part of pump was faulty it would
not function full stop not this constant intermittent problem? Any
ideas or input welcome, many thanks.

    Au contraire, possibly it is an ECM problem as intermittent
    functioning is most likely to be electronic circuit related, possibly
    something like a dry solder joint on a circuit board in the ECM.
    Driving the vehicle produces vibrations. The right vibrations make the
    circuit complete; wrong vibrations, temperature variations etc expand
    or flex the board and break the circuit causing problems.
    By any
    chance is there a particular length of time after starting to drive
    that the problems occur?
    Does it happen shortly after hitting a
    particular bump/roughness in the road? Does it happen on hot days, or
    cold? I presume that the problem is not there when the engine is
    cold????
    Wait for the diagnosis from Nissan.
    If there is no
    fault found, that doesn't mean that there is no fault in the unit; it
    just means testing it on the bench without the surrounding vehicle and
    normal driving conditions cannot replicate or induce the fault. The
    ultimate test is swapping a known good unit from a vehicle with no
    fault into your vehicle and driving to see if the fault happens again.
    If it does, then the problem is in the wiring leading to and from the
    injector pump, or in the injector pump itself; again, bench testing
    without the vehicle moving may not induce the fault. This is why
    mechanics hate intermittent faults....
    PS ask if this particular
    model engine has a sensor on the No1 injector and if they have checked
    or replaced it...unfortunately they are quite pricey..

      Hi ya! Our terrrano still off the road! We sent main ecm unders
      drivers dash off for testing and it came back that it had a diode
      blown which has now been repaired....the repairer said not to refit it
      as they believe a host wiring fault caused it! We are now waiting for
      an auto electrition to come and check the car. Before this all
      happened I have thought of a few things that have happened on car and
      wondered if they are connected to our presents probs? 1, before the
      engine management light first came on last august while towing ,my
      husband changed the twin electric towing sockets on the car and since
      then the towing indicator sounder goes off even when not towing! Could
      this b connected? 2, our alarm siren sounder does not work when alarm
      triggered only hazzards! I assumed it was the siren unit faulty and
      was getting round to getting it looked at but was not a priority for
      me at the time! Could this b connected? 3, also in around
      september/october car was struggling to start in the mornings...garage
      found all 4 glowplugs had blown! These were replaced last year as well
      including the relay which was blowing first then they found the glow
      plug prob! This time round car was repearedly struggling to start for
      longer....Could this b connected? 4, temp guage stopped working for a
      short time after intial work was done on diesal pump (the ecm to b
      precise) then it started working again with no intervention! Could
      this b connected? 5, while being diagnosed at nissans they found an
      airbag fault logged in the system, but light on dash doesnt work as
      bulb at some point before I got car has been removed! Also some dash
      bulbs have blown and stereo lcd display doesnt work but this has been
      like it since I bought car and I again was about to get this repaired
      or replaced but wasnt a priority as stereo itself worked fine! Could
      this b connected? Any input would b greatly appreciated as I just want
      my car back on road now with problem sorted, I am pursuing the issue
      with this car as before all this happened she was an excellant and

        Just found this at the bottom of the thread...yes, I am afraid he who
        fiddled with the wiring is probably responsible for the fault in
        relation to the towing indicator.It also probably blew the diode in
        the ECM..
        Other faults not as likely to have been caused by this
        short circuit...
        Alarm siren fault should not be related to this
        as the fault could be in the alarm system itself, or in the siren
        itself crapping out.
        Glow plug problem seems endemic in these
        vehicles. As the glow plugs each consume 20 amps when lit, that's 80
        amps going through the relay..The relay will handle that, but if there
        is a direct short circuit in the glow plug or the circuit the relay
        will burn up....smoke and flames have occurred in other
        cases.
        Temp gauge coming right indicates that the connector may
        have been disturbed just enough to cause a non-circuit; the vibration
        of normal running would twitch the connecter back into the normal
        position so it worked again. Spray contact cleaner on the connection
        and wriggle it around to clean it up.
        Air bag light being removed
        is a trick used by sellers to fool buyers when there is a problem with
        the Air bag system. As soon as you replace this bulb, you will have
        that light going full time. You will need to have the computer
        scanned for the fault..it will tell you what it thinks is wrong. You
        really don't want a not-working airbag if you have a
        crash.....
        Replace the other missing or blown dash bulbs since you
        are in there anyway..the klutz that removed the airbag light may have
        done other damage to the circuit board or light sockets.The warning
        bulbs are there to help you when things go wrong before it turns into
        a catastrophe....

    If you could bring yourself to use whole sentences and explain further
    we could probably help.
    If I understand correctly, your mechanic
    said it was not a tracking problem, but possible wear in the actual
    steering box. This is usually felt by 'slack' or "play" at the
    steering wheel rim when you turn the steering wheel and nothing seems
    to happen at the front wheels.
    Google "pathfinder" and on one or
    two American sites it explains how to carefully adjust the steering
    box using the adjuster and locking nut on top of it. Turn the steering
    wheel a half turn either way, left or right, then loosen the locking
    nut, then turn the adjuster "righty-tighty" until you just feel a
    resistance to be screwed in further. Tighten lock nut, you're done.
    Going too tight could cause catastrophic steering failure. Be
    gentle.
    As Steve wrote, start with the simple things. Get your
    wheels professionally dynamically balanced, both front and rear,
    before you start looking further.
    Checks for bulges in the tyre or
    uneven wear while the tyres are off the vehicle.
    Grease your ball
    joints and steering link, plus the idler arm and check for play in all
    those areas.

Subject : Battery discharging, Terrano taking long time to heat up
Thought this might be of use to Northern hemisphere Terrano
owners:
from Fixya:
Did you hear the one about the Terrano
with a charging problem?
Just fix it by replacing the
thermostat!
Seriously - check your temperature gauge does it take
ages for the needle to barely get off cold? (and is the heater
useless?)
The needle should get to just below half way in 2 or 3
minutes.
If the thermostat is stuck open, then the engine does not
get up to temperature.
The glow plug control senses the engine
temperature is cold, so the glow plugs stay on for an extended period
of time (sometimes 10 to 15 minutes) - short trips particularly in
winter, with more headlight driving - the alternator can't keep up
with the current being drawn off and from time to time you will end up
with a flat battery!
A thermostat is cheap, and easy to replace
(three bolts and about a half litre of coolant - I pumped the coolant
from the top of the radiator, and didn't spill a drop when the
thermostat housing was removed).
Sure enough, as the engine
temperature reached about 50C, the glow plugs turned off.

    Good advice . Make sure you use genuine Nissan thermostat as have
    heard after market ones can have a smaller hole in them and reduces
    water flow when they are open slowing water flow and cooling .

      But note that this is the procedure for the V6 petrol..the 2.7 diesel
      is much simpler as the thermostat housing is right on the top of the
      engine where the top radiator hose exits the engine...couldn't be
      simpler!
      And a universal thermostat gasket fits perfectly..

    The first thing to do is service the transmission. If you feel
    confident you can do it yourself, saving a lot of money. but it will
    involve raising the vehicle so you can get under it with a 10 litre
    container to catch the old trans fluid when you unbolt the sump. This
    may involve old fluid running down your arms , some swear words and a
    lot of rags to wipe up the inevitable spillage.
    then you remove
    the filter from the trans, making sure that the o ring that seals the
    pickup tube to the trans pump is also removed (may involve more swear
    words) and then cut (not saw) the filter into two pieces so you can
    examine the debris caught therein, which will give you an indication
    whether things are wearing a little 9normal) or a lot...oh dear, more
    swear words ...]
    Then you insert a new filter and o ring in place
    and install a new gasket and bolt up the sump.
    Now comes the
    interesting part. The torque converter is still full of old trans
    fluid. YOU SHOULD GET THIS OUT.
    Take output hose from the trans
    leading to the bottom of the radiator fluid cooler and extend it with
    another hose and place it in a bucket. tie it to the bucket with duct
    tape as the fluid squirts out and can move the hose..more swear words,
    rags required etc.
    Take another length of trans hose you have
    bought and attach one end to the input end of the trans fluid cooler
    on the radiator and extend the other end up past the engine clear of
    all whirly bits. Insert small funnel, and start pouring trans fluid
    (dexron 3) in until you replace all the fluid you drained out when you
    dropped the sump usually about 3 litres. Noe start the engine and you
    should notice that even in park the hose in the bucket will eject
    fluid.
    run engine 10 seconds, switch off, replace same amount of
    new fluid back into trans via funnel and hose. do this until the fluid
    coming out is the same nice bright pink as the fluid going
    in.
    Then reconnect the hoses as originally found; check levels as
    per book, add fluid through trans dipstick hole as required.
    Or
    take the truck to a good auto trans man, and stay and watch him do all
    this!!

    As above, servicing the trans is the first thing to do. I sometimes
    have the same thing happen to me, usually in cold weather, within the
    first 2 km of driving, after coming to a stop at traffic lights. In
    gear, idling, go to take off, fails to shift from first, revs past
    3,500...so I pull to the side of the road and stop, shift into
    reverse, reverse 10 metres, back into drive and away..no problems for
    the rest of the day, week, month...until it happens at random again. I
    replace the trans fluid every 30,000km (20,000miles) along with the
    filter, and have recently installed a Magnafine filter in the cooler
    line in order to try to trap the very finest particle possible which I
    think is causing this problem.
    Otherwise the trans works like a
    dream, almost 200,000km (120,000miles) I spoke to an owner of a
    similar vehicle a month ago and he stated that his had covered 2
    million kms (1.2 million miles) without overhaul using the same regime
    of maintenance. Remember, we have no salt on the roads in winter and
    the bodies just don't rust out here.......

Hi John, I bought this few months back and hear loud whine on top

    Where do you think this whine is coming from..the actual auto trans or
    some other part of the driveline, such as the rear axle?
    Is the
    rear diff limited slip?
    Did you replace the diff oil with LSD
    compatible oil?
    Is there a specific speed that this whine starts
    at? Have you wound down your driver's window and listened to the
    tyres..do they hum at speed?
    Have you recently replaced the
    tyres?
    Which gearbox are you considering filling to 5.1 litres????

      Many thanks for quick reply....
      - I'm pretty sure it comes at
      front / middle area around auto trans / transfer.
      - Yes, it's
      LSD. I filled Diff with Nulon GL5/6 oil.(But noise was same before oil
      replacement)
      - I feel whine is there whole time and increases with
      50 / 60km speed. Two weeks before I had drive out of town, still
      same.
      - It came with new tyres, but seems no relation since noise
      comes only when gas pedal pressed at any speed.

    It's probably the rear diff; I
    replaced a few of them when I worked for Nissan. They'll make a
    high-pitched whine with a load on them, but when you release the gas
    pedal and take the load off of the diff, the noise goes
    away.

    to fasten the door inners so you can access the inner door to remove
    and replace the exterior door handle. Note especially that "plug" in

    If its the switch I think it is it will be power,normal,hold or snow
    mode for the trans . Power lets the motor rev a bit more in each gear
    as its changing up for the likes of towing trailers with heavy loads
    ect .Hold or snow mode changes the gears up a lot sooner in the rev
    range so as not to spin the wheels in snow or slippery conditions .
    and normal is I guess just for normal every day driving.

    Kevin, the way to check fuses is with a multimeter. Ground the
    negative lead on the chassis somewhere (I usually use the door
    restraint) and use the red lead on each of the small points of the
    metal of the fuse that are able to be prodded by your probe. you don't
    take the fuse out...12v on one end and not the other = stuffed fuse.
    Just looking at it is not good enough these days with blade
    fuses.
    Or you can buy a circuit/continuity tester with a light
    and do the same thing.
    A cheap multi-meter also allows you to
    check the state of the battery and the charging system.

      Any spring wears out if compressed and released often enough..they are
      metal so they fatigue. If you can get second hand ones from a much
      younger vehicle, ensure that you put the springs on the correct side
      of the vehicle left/left, right/right. Otherwise almost instant
      failures will result.
      All explained 8 posts down with the relevant
      web references, with pics.

Subject : Hot Hub/Disc
Hi all after a trip up to the ski field I notice when I got home that
I could smell a rubber burning smell and notice that the left rear
wheel Hub/Disc was very hot(not smoking)but more the disc, I`m
guesting that the brake caliper piston might be stuck or something
along the lines of that?? any help would be great!

    Check that the sliding part of the calipers can actually slide over
    the pins...take the sliding caliper off and give the pins a good
    scrubbing removing crud.Use a smear of high temperature grease to
    lubricate the pins.
    The left side (front and back) has more road
    dirt, water etc spraying up off the road surface, therefore is more
    likely to crud up.
    This also accounts for the left side suspension
    and shockies wearing faster etc etc.
    You may as well check
    everything else while you are in there, and on both sides.

        The problem will be ascertaining the cause of the heat ....brakes
        being applied or not releasing...from the hub...bearings needing
        replacement or lubrication or adjustment.

        Examine carefully
        the flexible brake lines..any cracking in exterior, or leaking, or
        "crunchy' non flexible bits?
        One cause of residual pressure can
        be the breakdown of the inner walls of the flexible, forming 'valves"
        which stop fluid coming back out of the pistons.
        Another could be
        a buildup of crap in the system causing a "plug' effect blocking some
        smaller orifice with the same result.
        Is there excessive or
        noticeable difference with the wear on the left rear disc or pads
        compared to the right side?
        if you are friendly with your local
        WOF place and they have a very good brake testing roller system you
        could try them to see if there is a difference between brakes
        on/brakes off left/right?

        Perhaps go for a longer run at a
        steady state speed and coast to a halt without using the brakes, then
        test temperature?
        Good luck, keep us informed.

          ,leaks or brittle etc, all even wear on pads, piston is not stuck as I
          can press in back in with a clamp, there is a bit of friction (grab)
          as I spin the rear wheels free hand, the front are fine an spin real
          good free hand! Maybe look at a brake flush and bleed take rotors off
          and inspect hand-bake drums? Bearings would be mine next mission. I
          have notice grease like stuff coming out of the bearing cover on hub,
          whats involved with taking off hub, bearing adjusting?? tighten??

    Better to fix your own auto as it will then be ok for many thousands
    more miles,whereas the second hand unit is a pig in a poke, unless
    that goes in temporarily while your own gets overhauled.
    Look at
    the posts re autos below here and get it serviced first.......
    A
    good trans shop may have done the swap you are enquiring about for
    some other punter; do your research with Nissan dealers via their
    workshop foremen and try to get a yes or no from them (and their
    names).
    Sometimes a face to face gets better results.

Subject : Clutch Slave Cylinder
Hi all, Quick question about slave cylinder piston on my terrano,
notice that the piston itself can be pushed back in by hand and the
clutch peddle just drops to the floor but after a few quick pumps its
built pressure back up and engages the clutch fork, selects gears fine
etc is this normal or is it a sign that the slave cylinder itself is
out on its way?? seems to be no leaks around it but the fluid in the
master is pretty dirty colour and was going to flush and replace, do
you bleed the clutch the same way as you do the brakes?? Any ideas
would be great.
Cheers

  • Subject : Clutch Slave Cylinder
    Yes, you bleed it the same way. You've got air in there at the moment.
    Suck all the old fluid out of the master cylinder, replace with new
    fluid, then bleed the whole system. You'll be unpleasantly surprised
    how much crap will come out. If you still get air back in there after
    only a short time (couple of weeks/days/hours),check or replace the
    flexible hose to the slave cylinder if it appears cracked, chafed or
    soft (they can disintegrate on the inside).If you do a lot of 4WD then
    you will have to either re-sleeve the slave cylinder in stainless
    steel, or replace it with an new or reconditioned cylinder plus new
    seals and/or piston if that is also corroded. At worst the master
    cylinder will also need the same treatment.Prevention is replacing the
    fluid every 2 years at a minimum..and who does that??????

Hi - I have a 1996 import Nissan R3M Terrano. Also known as a Regulus

  • Subject : nissan terrano/pathfinder/regulus R3M
    If this is an auto, why does it need a clutch plate? If you mean a
    new band for one of the clutches in the auto trans, the model of the
    trans would be known to the trans shop who take it out and disassemble
    it, and at the same time can advise what else is worn and what should
    be replaced as a preventative measure. If you don't even know how to
    find out what model the trans is, please don't start trying to take
    the trans apart and/or replace bits..that is a way to become the owner
    of a long-term stationary Terrano that doesn't go anywhere
    anymore.
    For safety's sake do not try to slit the auto from the
    engine and the transfer case without the proper supports as they are
    heavy and will crush you if you do it wrong.
    many things can be
    fixed by Mr Fixit at home: this is not one of them.

      Thanks Doug, I should have explained, this is in the UK being an
      unusual import finding parts has proven very difficult in the
      past.

      The clutch has been slipping for a while and now needs
      sorting, it is to be done by a garage, (it was them that suggested the
      fault is likely to be the clutch plate in the car, they are aware it's
      an auto), but typical of a garage, they don't have time or inclination
      to shop around and if they can find apart just get it. Whilst part may
      cost £100 from one place it may be £200 from another, 9 out of 10
      this will be the garages favoured supplier (if in deed they can source
      it). In terms of understanding the difficulty I'm trying to gauge how
      long the car is out of action, we live in a village, it's our only
      means of transport and it's also used for the business. Any down time
      hits us very hard.
      Don't get me wrong this is a brilliant garage
      who have previously gone out of their way to repair items rather than
      risk the cost of a non compatible part to us. But some things are
      beyond repair.

      I just want the car in an out as quickly as
      possible but I also need to consider if it's financially worthwhile
      undertaking the repair. So knowing roughly how long will also give us
      an idea of the likely price. Thanks

    Are we talking about a Nissan Terrano or Pathfinder?
    Raise the
    front of the vehicle off the ground until there is no weight on the
    front suspension, place jack stands under frame for safety; remove
    both front wheels.
    The torsion bars are tensioned at the rear, so
    you have to release the torsion on them by undoing the bolt contacting
    the body which is in the arm at the rear end of the torsion
    bar.
    Count the number of turns needed to release the tension.

    You need to re-tension by the same number of turns on
    reassembly.
    Mark the bars and the splined socket so that you can
    put the bars back into the correct spline on reassembly.
    If you
    have a saggy suspension you could try ONE spline over to increase the
    tension (Left bar anti-clockwise, right bar clockwise).
    Otherwise
    bite the bullet and upgrade to new OEM or aftermarket torsion bars to
    get the front end ride height back to what it should be.
    Then
    remove the torsion bars from the front mountings which are splined.
    There will be large circlips on the bars to stop rearwards movements,
    so take the circlips off.
    Also mark the bars "left" and "right"
    and reinstall on the correct sides of the vehicle.
    Otherwise the
    bars will fail within minutes.
    When you reassemble the
    suspension you will have to re-tension the bars using the bolt through
    the arm, reattach the wheels and go for a drive; check the ride height
    and suitably adjust the bolts with the weight off the front suspension
    (on the jack and stands again).
    Retest until it all meets
    specs.
    Finally, get a 4 wheel alignment done at your favorite
    shop...

    Torsion bars are very tightly wound springs..treat
    them gently and with great respect.

    While you are under the
    vehicle (if it is a Pathfinder), have you already cured the "Death
    Wobble" with new poly bushes in the 4 radius links in the rear
    suspension??
    That is also important.

    Happy trails....

    This vibration at 1500 revs, is that from a cold start? When the

    on cold start? How long does the glow plug light on the dash take to
    go out after you first switch on the key on a cold start? Sorry but I
    don't understand what you mean re the window being closed..there is an
    effect like being inside a drum if one window is wound down even
    partially under certain circumstances, especially if you do not have
    deflectors or monsoon shields. It is caused by the air pressure
    differential between outside and inside (the air outside pressurises
    the cabin which expands slightly, then relaxes, then repressurises
    etc......can feel funny on the ears.

        Engine mounts/gearbox mounts could be a possibility, especially if you
        have no smoke on startup and glowplug lights are behaving normally.
        One person had bad vibrations only when turning left..that was a
        broken mount on the engine. How long have you had this problem? Did it
        start suddenly, or just gradually over a period of weeks? When you rev
        the engine while the car is stopped and in neutral, does the engine
        still vibrate up to 1500 revs? Then it's engine related. If the
        vibration only happens when actually driving along the road, it could
        be worn U joints in the drive line. The problem can be found by
        logically listing what does happen when you change the parameters of
        your driving.

                broken or worn engine mount, especially the one near the oil filter

            No. It’s not just intended for just a petrol car. It can be fitted
            to any type of car. It is intended to reduce the fuel consumption of
            the car. I have fitted the system to the car and am attempting to
            discover the operation of the injection system, as the manual I have
            for the car does not seem to have the same type of control system as
            my car. I have discovered that the book indicates a Mass Air flow
            detection system and oxygen sensor system to detect the fuel mixture
            but, my car has no oxygen sensors or a Mass Air flow detection system.
            It seems to have a MAP or Mass Air Pressure detector on the inlet
            manifold after the turbo. Basically the book is useless. However
            having discovered this I can use it to lean out the mixture and am
            building a control box to control the mixture. The MAP sensor can be
            one of two types, a DC voltage that increases with engine speed and
            load or a Frequency based sensor where the oscillating frequency
            increases with speed and load. Basically the addition of hydrogen to
            the airflow will cause a more complete combustion of the fuel and
            hence the mpg. I have gained efficiency even with ought the adjustment
            to the mixture but will be able to increase the MPG gain when the
            mixture is corrected. I would be interested to know is any one else
            has the same sensor system on their vehicle?
            I Have a 10% fuel
            saving currently and hope to increase it to around 30% when done.

              Are you saying you are aiming for a 30% reduction in diesel
              consumption? Fantastic! you will be using 30%less diesel..and 100%
              more hydrogen...and unless you have access to "free" hydrogen, how
              will that be more economical? The LPG systems I mentioned already
              exist with a claimed up to 40% increase in power and torque..and at
              41% the engine turns into a hand grenade. You would think that if
              diesel vehicle manufacturers could reliably improve fuel consumption
              and do so at less cost, they would already have done it and boasted
              about it.....but, it will be interesting to see how you go, there
              always has to be the one genius to make a breakthrough...good luck.

                The Hydrogen is generated on board using Hydrolysis. It is 66%
                hydrogen and 33% oxygen and is injected in to the air intake. It uses
                the 12 Volts from the battery to produce 1 litre pm of gas. The Idea
                is not to increase the power of the engine but to allow the weaker
                diesel/air to be supplemented by the hydrogen so no danger of bombing
                the engine. By adjusting the MAF sensor output to the EMU end hence
                the mixture to account for the hydrogen the amount of diesel used for
                the same power can be much less. No hydrogen is stored on board as it
                is generated as it is needed by the engine.

                  Oh dear, the "something for nothing" concept of fuel economy. Where
                  does the battery get it's 12 volts? From the alternator. Where does
                  the alternator get it's drive? From the engine via the pulley and V
                  Belt. Where does the engine get it's fuel..from diesel and
                  hydrogen.
                  It costs fuel (energy), which costs money, to produce
                  alternative fuel (hydrogen) to fuel the engine.
                  you do know about
                  superchargers use them and the engine has to supply horsepower to
                  drive the supercharger to compress the air to push into the engine..up
                  to 200hp on a 100hp dragster etc etc. Your hydrogen generator is also

                    I have done the numbers on the system and the amount of power produced
                    by the engine as a result of burning the HHO is 40% greater than the
                    amount of power used by the HHO generator to produce the amount of HHO
                    gas stated. The generator consumes 200Watts from the battery. I
                    realise you are sceptical and I was before I examined the figures.
                    There are numerous papers on the subject if you care to consult them.
                    It remains a fact that at this time, I have a fuel saving with ought
                    MAP adjustment of 15% over a period of motoring over the same distance
                    and terrain. Your comments regarding the car manufactures, not using
                    the technology are not necessarily true, at least not in this country.
                    If we all did it the government would loose a lot of revenue on fuel
                    duty and after the way the big companies have been found wanting
                    lately and that most of them are milking us for all they can get I
                    don’t think its in there interest to produce a car that runs on an
                    alternative fuel. However this is only my opinion and if I can give a
                    little less to the taxman I will try my hardest to do it. Like most
                    people my cash balance is being squeezed by the current situation and
                    this is a cost that will only go up and up. If you have any imperial

Subject : Nissan Terrano 1991
Hi I have a 1991 Nissan Terrano turbo deisel auto, this car has run
like a gem however the other day on the highway it starts dropping in
and out of overdrive constantly then going up a hill would not kick
into overdrive and sat on 80klms struggling up the hill, it is not
doing this around town on small drives only after drivin g for about
half hour, also the next morning when I started the car the AT light
was flashing intermitently only on starting. I also have an electric
fuel pump fitted, hoping yopu can give me some answers :)

    The flashing a/t light is signalling the fault code for the auto
    trans.
    It's electronic brain reveals that to you by a series of
    flashes such as 1 2 3 4; 1 2; 1 2 3 4; 1 2 (repeating).
    If you
    can find out this code and post it here we may be able to see what the
    probable fault may be.
    Every time you switch on the ignition to
    start the engine this code will flash until you fix the
    problem.

    A damn good start would be to have the auto trans
    serviced; the pan on the bottom is dropped, fluid drained and the
    filter removed, torn apart to check what type of debris has been
    caught. Depending on how much debris in the filter and in the bottom
    of the pan an experienced auto trans engineer can tell you what has
    gone wrong, and ballpark what it's going to cost to fix it.
    It
    may be as simple as a new filter, pan gasket and a refill with dexron3
    fluid.
    It may cost a lot more.....a rebuild of the
    trans.....
    While he is under the vehicle he will physically check
    the electric connections to the trans, and possibly can spray clean
    them with contact cleaner.
    Why did you have an electric fuel pump
    fitted? There is an engine powered fuel pump already..did this fail?

    The fitting of that should not have precipitated the auto trans
    problems, unless the wiring has been botched.
    This engine/trans
    combination is almost bulletproof with REGULAR oil/fluid/filter
    changes.
    Good luck. Post the code!!!!

    to fix it at no cost.
    If that for some reason is impossible, try
    tracking down the connections where rubber hoses meet metal heater

    Do you have any recourse to the previous owner to get him to at least
    open the sunshade? The rattling can be fixed with a thin sheet or
    strips of rubber between it and then sunroof. But it sounds like the
    PO glued things shut to stop the rattle instead of fixing it properly.
    See if you can slip a blunt old knife or similar round the edge of the
    sunshade to loosen it up until it can slide.

  • Subject : over heating when towing
    The first thing to check is the fan clutch..does the fan turn and
    "roar" i.e. move air when it is first started in the morning? It
    should do this for the first 1 km or so, then the sound will die away
    and it will idle until the temperature of the air flowing over it,
    heated by the radiator, causes the fan to re-engage and "roar' once
    more. if it does not do this when the temperature guage goes over
    half way (steep hills,towing, hot day) then you have to replace the
    fan and clutch as one unit. Easy, remove radiator, take out old fan,
    install new.
    Does it take forever to warm up, yet gets very hot
    when the towing etc..then you have a partially open
    thermostat..replace with Nissanone..not the replacement generic from
    the nearest parts shop..that won't have the length to do a good job
    when starting from cold.
    Does your guage immediately go to high
    temperature from start..then you have a stuck shut
    thermostat..replace.
    Are you loosing a lot of coolant out of the
    neck of the radiator from cold when you take the rad cap off,
    accompanied by thrashing bubbles..then you have a combustion leak into
    the coolant usually the head gasket needs replacing, head planed, plus
    new thermostat, hoses and probably a rodding-out of the radiator etc
    etc.
    But I am only using my crystal ball, which has a crack in

    When was the last time you replaced the fuel filter and the air
    filter? If it has been over a year or 12,000 miles, do them. Open up
    the old fuel filter with a hacksaw just under the top rim, check to
    see if it is blocked by algae/crud etc. If so, trace fuel line from
    filter to fuel pump and check fine gauze filter under banjo bolt where
    fuel line enters fuel injection pump.
    When you first turn on the
    ignition key, does any orange light flash on the dash? It will be
    something like flick, flick, pause, flick flick etc.? That may be a
    trouble code thrown by the ECU.
    There may also be a code thrown to
    show 'limp home' mode where the trans basically stays in 3rd gear..but
    it doesn't sound like that problem. Check the air supply tubes running
    from the filter to the turbo, then to the inter cooler, then to the
    intake manifold, for tears, especially underneath where tears are hard
    to find. If you are going to do this with the engine running, watch

    belts? Check and repack front wheel bearings. check bushes on anti
    sway bar, and on the 4 rear axle locating links, especially if you
    have a wobble at over 50mph (the death wobble)

      Many thanks Doug, sounds like you know the Terrano well. Your advice
      is much appreciated, guess I'll be spending the day following
      it.

    I agree with above, I can't comment re synthetic fluids as I use the
    standard dino oils and change them regularly. you will have to do the
    experimentation yourself. Use the WWW but don't believe everything you
    read. Consult with a mechanic you respect before risking your
    vehicle's well-being.

        Eric, look through this site and you will find related posts for the
        vehicle and the engine. Read the US pathfinder sites as well, then you
        will get an idea of the things you should be looking for.if this is
        your first 4wd, get a knowledgeable friend or your favourite mechanic
        to go along and test it, or get it tested by an independent garage.

    I should have said "GL4 or better" so GL5, the latest and greatest
    will be absolutely awesome in the gearbox.
    The only place not to
    use improved fluid is in the automatic transmission (which you do not
    have) where Dex 3 should not be substituted by Dex 4, 5 or 6....it's
    apparently too good...

      Identify the transmission model, then get parts from a factor or a
      trans shop.
