Subject : mistral 97 warning light for battery a/t oil temp and another one
Hey I was driving my mistral the other day and 3 warning lights all

    More info needed. What engine? What transmission? What happens/what
    conditions are you running in when the stall happens? Accelerating, or
    braking? Hot or cold? Wet or dry? Turning/driving straight? Fuel level
    in tank? uphill/downhill? Overrun?

John , Been a while as have had computer issues . We were away over
xmas and on the way home found that if you went to pass a car or clime
a hill the auto would chop down to 3rd as it should , then the engine
would pull strong untill exactly 3500rpm then it was like the
governers were switched on and would not rev past that point . Lots of
black smoke as well . Take your foot off the gas for a bit and slow
down and then give her the jandal again and yet again pulls well to
that same rpm mark .When driving normally it is fine . It dose this
when overdrive is on or off. Fuel filters air filters all good .
Sounds more like engine management do you think ??

Can somebody perhaps help with questions I have on the ZD 30
I have a 2001 Patrol 3.0 with the ZD 30 motor. The motor
has blown and I have been offered a ZD 30 from a Neo/Terrano. Are they
compatable and will it just bolt on. Any help will be highly

    Theoretically they should be compatible..but you will have to
    physically compare them to be sure. Are they the same year? Have you
    got any friends at a Nissan workshop that you can ask???

      Thanks for the reply. I see the top plastic cover states that the
      "new" motor was salvaged from a Neo, I believe around a 2006 model.On
      the specs web pages I see it is slightly down on power but a full 50Nm
      down on torque. My concern however is type of diesel pump and basic
      control system. The Patrol's is said to be not too good hence the
      nickname of "Hand Grenade" This is mostly blamed on the turbo control
      system and pressure sensors. This is of concern to me as I don't know
      if the electronics are compatible, is it bolt in or do I now have to
      sit with engine management problems.

Away at xmas and on the way home found that our terrano when you chop
down out of overdrive into 3rd and give her the jandal the motor will
pull well untill 3500 rpm then it like the governers cut in and wont
pull any more revs or accelerate at all . Lots of black smoke when
this happens . Now I dont drive at hogh revs all the time so this is
not a problem 99 % of the time . No issues at lower rev range under

    Steve, last time that happened to me the fix was to replace the fuel
    filter. It was full of black crud probably algae...but it was the
    original Japanese filter and was 90k and 9 years old! How long was
    your Terrano off the road sittuing a shed or out in the
    open?? and was the fuel tank full or only partially full? (think
    expansion /contraction and water condensation in tank) Can't say we
    have had all that much rain lately so probably not rain water in the
    Can you think of any other reason not enough fuel is
    getting to the injectors at times of high demand? e.g air leak,
    diaphragm holed on fuel filter pump etc etc?

      stored and gets a run probably every couple of weeks . Fuel is from
      work and is filtered with very good filters as all our tractors and
      combine are common rail . Its more like an engine sensor telling the
      engine not to rev above 3500rpm .Only thing I have not done in ages is
      clean the MAF sensor . If it was starving for fuel would there be lots
      of black smoke ??

Can anyone tell me what 6 speed gearbox will fit my nissan Terrano 3.0

  • Subject : Nissan Terrano upgrade to 6 speed G/box
    You can make anything fit by throwing enough money and time at it.
    What are you trying to do? It's not a sports car, so a sixth
    (overdrive) gear won't help it handle better at higher speeds. The low
    gear might also not be as low as the gear you now have, so that won't
    help off road...what are you trying to do???

      • Subject : Nissan Terrano upgrade to 6 speed G/box
        See my first answer. The Terrano is a four wheel drive which weighs
        more than the average vehicle. It takes energy to move mass..the
        heavier vehicle can never be as economical as a lighter one unless you
        change various already have a diesel engine, it is
        turbocharged..that's two factors.
        If you build in some other
        gearbox you will alter the overall gearing and may get better fuel
        economy on a long trip at steady speeds. But do you use the vehicle
        for towing a caravan or a horse float? If so, will the gearing suit
        that task? Most 6 speed gearboxes are manual..are you swapping out an
        existing manual or trying to convert from auto to manual? In which
        case it will require a new flywheel etc as well. Your vehicle has a
        computer to run the electronic fuel injection pump, and an ECU to run
        the transmission as well if it is an auto gearbox.
        You will be
        better off deciding to sell the Terrano and buying an economical small
        car that is set up to get maximum fuel economy..

    Noberto, have you just bought the vehicle?
    Has this behaviour just
    Is this the only time the engine quits..after an
    emergency stop?
    From what speed?

    If the vehicle is
    above 60kmh, the auto trans "locks up" in "fourth" or "overdrive" so
    that it becomes almost a manual transmisson..and if the lockup doesn't
    release for whatever reason the auto box won't automatically
    compensate for the rapid slowdown and will not change into first gear
    by the time you come to a stop. That may cause a stall.

    trouble codes or check engine lights show up?
    Does the vehicle
    start immediately after the stall if you switch the key off first,
    then restart..or can you restart the engine without turning the key
    completely back to off or acc?

    However, if the vehicle is
    below 60 kmh it should be in the lower gears anyway, and the lockup
    should not have bee..or should not be activated.

    So you can
    test this theory by emergency stops in "D" (drive) over 60 kmh as
    normal with overdrive on;
    and then other stops with overdrive
    "locked out" with the button on the gearstick from above 60 kmh; then
    below 60 kmh, followed by stops with gear held manually in 2 and in

    Any trouble codes or check engine lights show

    Do you have access to a mechanic with a scan tool who can
    check if any trouble codes have been recorded on the OBD2

    If the mechanic can ride with you and have the scan
    tool plugged in while you do these stops it may show a momentary

    as I have said many times before, dropping the pan on
    the transmission and replacing the filter, refilling with new fluid
    and flushing the old fluid out by pumping out the old while replacing
    it with new can have a very good effect on the transmission..and may
    be the cheapest cure for it's ailments... see other previous posts on
    this subject and look up the you tube videos on how to do it's not hard to do....

        You have done all the things that are the easy fixes..except one that
        I did not mention before..and which slipped my mind until now. These
        vehicles seem to have a problem with the grounding straps that run
        from the engine to the body, and from the body to the negative
        terminal of the battery. Just to make sure, unbolt these ground
        straps, examine them for corrosion or breakage, test them with a
        multimeter while twisting them and turning and pulling on them (to
        test that there is no internal corrosion or breaks in the wire),
        including the one from the gearbox to the chassis (if there is one)
        and sandpaper the attachment points until bright metal shows. Use an
        anti-seize grease and re bolt them all down tight. The electronic
        controls for the engine and transmission rely on the ground wires for
        the electrical path back to the battery..and if the ground wires are
        corroded either inside the wires themselves or at the attachment
        point, the electricity will not flow. Since when you put the car in
        drive after being in neutral the engine and gearbox "twist" under
        torque, the wires may be disturbed just enough for the loss of
        electrical contact..and the same when you brake hard. It would be
        like the key being turned off....

Subject : Looking at 1994 Terrano II / Mistral
Looking at buying a 1994 Mistral Sport (Terrano II) here in the UK.
2.7TD Automatic. The underbody looks pretty good for the age (i.e.
not much corrosion). However, there does appear to a slight weeping
of oil from some of the pipes from the tube to the engine. Is this
normal? Also revving the engine produces a bit of black smoke.
Although the seller did mention that the vehicle had been stood around
on his drive for a while? Anything else I should look out for on this

- UK - Sun 16th November 2014 08:25pm (GMT)
  • Subject : Looking at 1994 Terrano II / Mistral
    The slight leaking of oil is from the compressed air from the turbo
    going through those pipes to the intake valves of the engine. The air
    entering the turbo charger comes from two sources; out of the air
    filter, and partway along the hose leading to the turbo intake is a
    small hoses that leads to the positive crankcase ventilation valve on
    the valve cover. This small hose sucks oil misted air from the engine
    keeping a mild negative pressure on the engine and helps to keep the
    oil from leaking out from the valve cover, sump and any other place
    with a gasket or seal. In the old days it used to go straight out
    into a road draft tube, an open pipe pointed at the road surface below
    the engine..before we all got PC and sucked that waste back into the
    engine to be burnt up in the cylinders and poked out the
    Anyhoo, when oil mist plus air is pressurised it tries
    to escape where ever it can, and so it leaks out at hose joints
    between rubber and metal no matter how tight you wind the
    Just wipe the outside every so often and ignore it for the
    As for the excess black smoke on acceleration, the instant
    you plant foot on the accelerator the injection system pumps lots more
    diesel through the injectors..more that the turbo can produce air to
    provide the correct ratio for clean burning. As you probably noticed,
    as soon as equilibrium is reached, the smoke disappears.
    he other
    cause for excessive black smoke may be crudded-up injectors where the
    spray pattern is disrupted by carbon.
    There is lots of reading on
    this WWW about all those subjects.
    These vehicles are long
    lasting, especially the engines if maintained well. As with all
    diesels, change the oil often as the vacuum pump on the back of the
    alternator that produces the vacuum for the power brakes needs clean
    oil to continue to function well. You don't need synthetics, just a
    good 15/40w diesel oil with lots of nice detergents in it. The oil
    will go black within 100kms (diesels are dirty inside) but will last
    5000kms (3,000 miles) before needing a change. The autos last well if
    the fluid is changed every 50k or so. if using it to tow, instal an
    extra trans fluid cooler in line with the one in the bottom of the
    radiator to cope with the extra heat, and tow with the overdrive
    lockup off.

      Thanks for the reply. I suppose I'm used to the more modern direct

        The modern diesel also has a particulate filter in the exhaust, and
        may need "blue fluid" (urea) added as well to purify the exhaust.

        But have you seen the intake manifold of a modern direct
        injection diesel which always has an EGR (exhaust gas recirculation)

        The huge amount of very fine carbon particles
        produced by direct injection when mixed with the oil misted air from
        the crankcase/valve cover form a horrendous black hard sooty clag all
        the way to the back of the intake valves....

        Have a read on
        the internet re blocking off the EGR valves...

    much resistance? Do you have an auxiliary electric radiator fan fitted
    as well as the engine driven one?

    Otherwise read up about the
    operation of thermally activated fan clutches and their operation, and
    go from there.

    What temperature shows on the temp gauge when
    the fan kicks in..over half way?

    When was the last time you

    Once you have read these and other posts you will probably
    find that your lift has screwed with the radius arm and panhard rod
    settings, (as you lift the panhard rod in particular becomes too short
    and will "pull" on the axle) and you will need adjustable arms/rods to

    When does the grinding occur..only the first time you brake after the
    vehicle sits overnight? ...this could be a light surface rust from
    overnight dew being ground off by the first application of
    Check with a torch(flashlight) early each morning before
    you take off for work and see if there is rust there....
    likelihood for rusting increases if the replacement rotors were
    aftermarket rather than OEM Nissan.

    If it happens all through
    the day, then it won't be rust (unless the rotors are really crappy
    cast iron).
    Which side grinds the most?
    Is it Front or back
    Is there a possibility that there is a small stone trapped
    in between either the splash shield or the calipers and rotor?

      Cheers John
      The disc and pads have only done about 50 miles so
      there is no rust on the discs the problems is there on and off all
      day its feels like the front brakes it shudders on the brake pedal
      and a loud grinding noise when i brake and i replaced the shoes on the
      rear about 2 months ago. Do you think it maybe one of the front brake
      hoses may be faulty and is collapsing internally even though they are
      only about 18 months old. It’s a pain in the butt as i cannot take
      the caravan away until this problem is fixed.

        When you took off the old discs, did you clean very thoroughly the
        mating surface between the new disc and the hub. If not, rust on the
        seating here can make the disc wobble.
        Do you have ABS? If so,
        take the front wheels off and clean thoroughly around the sensor as
        any metallic particles including a build up of rust can cause
        Check that the sensor has not been pushed out of
        position by rust..too big a gap can cause problems.
        I come back to
        a very pertinent point..these problems only started after new discs
        and pads were fitted.
        Did you check the dimensions of the new
        discs in relation to the old ones, e.g. diameter of centre hole, total
        thickness of discs etc?
        Did you fit them yourself?
        Did you let
        the calipers hang from the brake hose, or perhaps did you disturb the
        ABS sensor or it's wire?
        Were the discs and pads from Nissan, or a
        What hardness rating on the pads?
        Did you follow
        instructions re breaking them in?
        Did you ever bleed all the old
        fluid out of the brakes so fresh fluid flows throughout the system?

        Have you checked wheel bearing play and wear? Ever repacked the
        front wheel bearings?
        If all else fails, it's time to take the
        problem to an expert to have him look over what you have done. He may
        spot the problem within seconds...that allows you to go on holiday

Subject : Nissan Terrano 3 litre
I have a 04 Nissan Terrano 3L manual, Turbo diesel. When in normal
drive the vehicle runs well. When I put it into 4WD high and worse
still into 4WD low the vehicle has a very heavy drag on the steering.
It seems to be fighting against the steering when I try to turn the
wheel and there is a nasty "clunk" which shakes the whole back axle.
I have checked the oil and have put in the correct limited slip-diff
oil but it is no better. When I drained the diff.oil I took the cover
off the diff. and there was no sign of any damage inside. The only
other thing I can say there are 245x17 tyres all round instead of the
normal 235 tyres. But surely this wouldn`t make a difference as they
are all the same size. Any ideas please?

    You have "selectable 4WD".
    This means that when you select 4wd
    the entire drive line both front and back is sent the same amount of
    power from the transfer case. Any attempt to turn the front wheels
    means one front wheel is going to have to try to cover more ground
    (the "outside of the curve" wheel, and the inner wheel will cover less
    ground (fewer rotations). The drive coming to the front wheels from
    the transfer case will not change. Somehow the front diff has to
    This "coping" is the drag you feel.
    If you also have a
    limited slip diff in the front axle,(not very common because the
    "fight" is even worse, and something only hardcore 4WD enthusiasts
    welcome) it will fight this "slip' between the two front wheels. (it
    will try to "not slip") Depending on how "tight" the LSD action has
    been set up, this can and will give you bangs and shudders.
    you have a LSD rear axle diff as well, those wheels will be doing the
    same battle at the other end of the vehicle. As one wheel grips best,
    the LSD transfers some of the drive force to the other "slipping"
    wheel bang grip, slip,bang grip slip, bang..
    Now if you are on a
    slippery surface, say mud, wet grass or clay, sand or gravel, the
    drive line can cope as all wheels can slip. However, on tarmac,
    concrete, hard packed surfaces etc the drive line "winds up" as the
    wheels cannot slip...until the pressure overcomes the wheel grip on a
    loose stone or slippery bit (or a very expensive bit of metal goes
    Since all your tyres are the same size it is only the
    operating conditions that you are subjecting the vehicle to that are
    causing what you perceive as a problem.
    The resistance to changing
    direction even in a normal "open" diff is perfectly normal as the back
    wheels are still trying to push the vehicle in the easiest direction
    i.e. straight ahead.

    I hope this helps.
    For more
    detailed explanations and diagrams do a google search or refer to your
    local library for a book on 4WD operation.

    Be very pleased
    you can select 4WD, rather than having an all wheel drive. BMW front
    diffs can explode in very little pieces just from being put on rollers
    in brake tests for the MOT, or ion street driving "yumping" with the
    front end coming off the ground and losing traction. In NZ, that is
    $8000..about 3500 pounds before labour....

test it and it isn't actually in full 4wd ,took it for a test on a
local paddock in both 2 and 4wd and it definitely isn't in 4wd when
the light is on ,hence why I think it is just a warning light.if I
turn off the ignition (99% of the time) the light turns off the revs
drop and its fine ...until next time (which is often) .so does anybody
have any clue what this is. we have removed the switch to see if it
was that, not that and have reconnected it. could it just need more
fluid, or a transmission service maybe? or something else. any help
much appreciated. the make and model is petrol 1997 terrano regulus

  • Subject : 4wd warning light
    Have you recently bought and fitted new tyres to the vehicle, either
    both front or both back? If so and the vehicle does have ABS, then the
    warning may be for a mis-match in the rolling circumference of the
    tyres causing a warning that if 4wd is engaged the mismatch could
    cause "wind-up" in the driveline as one set of wheels would turn
    faster than the other, even in a straight line. If the vehicle does
    have ABS.
    Otherwise I suggest taking the vehicle to a technician
    with a scan machine and interrogating the computer for the fault codes
    that will be in there, before you start throwing parts and service at

    Did the air leak start after you had the vehicle serviced, i.e. say
    after you had the fuel filter changed? If not, then you will have to
    start looking for the air leak in the fuel system anywhere in the line
    from the tank (including the pickup tube inside the tank..does the air
    leak happen more often at low tank levels???) all the way to the first
    pump (the lift pump) since after the first pump the fuel will be under
    Top suspect and easiest fix would be a leaking seal on
    the fuel filter. (also check the filter housing that the filter screws
    into for cracking)second would be a pinhole in a steel line caused by
    rubbing/flexing of the line against some part of the body, third a
    crack in the pickup line inside the tank...

    Drain your rear axle. Examine the colour and contents of the gear oil
    that comes out. If it sparkles with metallic particles the
    differential will need an bearings etc.
    If you
    entrust this inspection to a professional, get them to quote re an
    overhaul versus the complete replacement "bolt in" of a good
    second-hand axle, "wheel to wheel".
    You could do the research
    yourself at the local wreckers to give an indication as to the normal
    price of the second hand unit before fitting costs are factored in.
    Some wreckers will also give a warranty..say three months..if problems
    develop they will get another unit to repalce the faulty one. It's not
    rocket and a friend could do this yourselves with a few
    tools and some planning.

    This may also give you the
    opportunity to put in a limited slip diff (if you don't already have

    Also it allows you to have a good look at the radius
    arm bushings..they may as well be replaced at the same time. Refer to
    "Nissan death wobble" in Pathfinders in the US. You have the same

    As always, maintenance is the pays
    to drain and refill the rear axle every 30k or so, (a 15 minute job,
    and 2.8 litres of fluid available at all factors etc) and it should
    also be drained and refilled at any time if the axle has been immersed
    in water over 500mm deep, as the rapidly cooling diff sucks in water
    through the bearings and the axle breathers......

  • Subject : Oil breather
    The PCV (positive crankcase ventilation ) system draws air mixed with
    oil fumes out of the engine and into the air intake through the rubber
    pipe leading from the rocker cover to the plastic tubing (just in
    front of the turbo) from the air filter. If you blow through this you
    should notice no effort is required to blow; it free-flows
    Google "catch tank" and you will see that you can separate
    out most of the oil mist..except when the engine is worn out. Then
    the blow-by gases leaking past the piston rings overwhelm the system,
    and the crankcase has a positive (pressurised) amount of air inside
    which will escape from every hole it can find....resulting in oily
    pastches like you have at the joints in the engine, such as rocker
    cover, oil filler hole, turbo piping and joints etc.
    So, is your
    vehicle that old and worn that no matter how many holes and rubber
    tubes you were to put in it would still have excess pressure and
    If so, you will need to either fix it or scrap it.
    I suggest that you mostly ignore it, but keep an eye on the severity
    of the oil fumes produced. If that gets too much, Google "runaway
    engine" and see what could happen if the fumes actually start fuelling
    the engine.....

    How aggressive is your tyre pattern? Mud grips really hum, A/T gently
    hum, and HT is the quietest tread pattern.
    So, did you change
    tyres shortly before the humming started to bother you?
    If there
    has been no change in the tyres, and both wheel bearings have been
    replaced and set correctly, then the only possible noise maker left
    would be the differential, which actually works harder when you are
    turning than when you run in a straight line.
    You did not say the

    Is your vehicle permanent
    4WD? Or is it selectable? Does it have auto- engaging hubs? Do you

      David, what engine is in there at the moment? Is it a manual gearbox,
      because if it is an auto, you will have to cobble together an ECU,a
      new bell housing, flywheel and flex plate as well...
      in most
      cases unless you are replacing like for like the end result is an
      expensive time and cash devouring orphan with little resale value.

Toady the turbo was making alot of noise an in result
after stopping the motor is smoking with white an blue smoke
continually an the engine knows flutters on its own as you take your
foot of the throttle.
is this sounding just like a turbo prob or
pls can some one give me advice as its a clean motor..

  • Subject : terrano 3.0l
    Jemma, frankly this doesn't sound good...I would suspect the turbo
    bearings being worn out. Please do not drive the vehicle as when the
    bearing really let go at speed, the engine can "run away" as the oil
    from the crankcase is pumped into the intake and becomes fuel for the
    engine. You cannot stop it by turning off the key. Google runaway
    diesel to see it happen.
    You need to see a good mechanic who will
    assess the situation before informing you of the best course of
    The turbo will cost, but the worry is any other damage to
    the engine itself from bits that may have been ground off the turbo
    blades etc.
    If you are going to deal with the engine on a DIY
    basis, unbolt the turbo to have it overhauled, ask the overhauler to
    assess and ascertain what fragments of blades may be missing,and
    before giving him the ok to overhaul the turbo, check for those bits
    in the inlet manifold, AND check cylinder compressions.
    If all
    your compressions are good, and there are no bits found, go ahead with
    the overhaul and bolt the overhauled turbo back on and see what
    You may be lucky....

    However if damage to the
    motor has also occurred, then it may be better to replace it with a
    second hand good one from a wrecker.

What would make a poping sound coming from the exhaust
Adelaide, South Australia, Australia - Sun 25th May 2014 10:08am (GMT)
  • Subject : nissan sd33t
    If you had a Pope in your exhaust pipe, he could make a poping sound.
    However, the normal "popping" on overrun is an occasional partially
    unburnt charge of air and fuel not completely burnt in the engine
    which exits the exhaust valve and is then ignited by another exiting
    and still burning charge from an adjacent cylinder. "Pop" goes the
    exhaust. Big bore exhausts with straight through mufflers emphasise
    this otherwise non- harmful sound.

out sometimes when I select drive or reverse or it can cut out when
the revs drop to idling speed and then I go to accelerate off. The EM

no1 fault? Is it just the injector sensor at fault or cud it be a
number of faults? Any help appreciated thanks.

    You would be wise to start by replacing that No1 sensor, as that is
    the most likely cause of all those problems.
    Once you have
    replaced that, get the technician to remove all the fault codes in the
    computer, and drive until the EM light comes on again. with any luck,
    it won't!
    Look at directly buying the Bosch No1 unit yourself

    Could there be a "feedback" somewhere in the hot wire to the terminal
    of the starter solenoid?
    More likely, is the starter solenoid
    "sticky" so that when the solenoid is energised, it pulls the plunger
    which engages the starter, the the main contacts are bridged, the
    starter turns and keeps running even when the key is
    Even if the solenoid is de-energised, (key turned back
    to Run or off) the rod/piston keeps it's forward position and the
    starter keeps turning until vibration rattles the actuator rod loose
    Take out the starter and check the solenoid very carefully
    and actuate it "on the bench" to check....
    In fact solenoids are
    not very expensive and it might pay to just replace it....
