    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 overhaul..new 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 science..you 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
    one).

    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
    suspension...)

    As always, maintenance is the key....it 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
My 2001 2.7 Auto developed smoke from oil breather,filler cap and
around that area, Spanish mechanic changed oil,filter and cleaned
breather with Benzine but problem has come back after 3-4 weeks.Nissan
garage here says if I change breather 247€.... the problem will come
back as its an old car,no offer of flushing oil, is there another
valve maybe thats blocked

  • 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
    air.
    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
    leaks?
    If so, you will need to either fix it or scrap it.
    May
    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.....

Subject : Noise
I have a humming noise while driving though it was wheel bearing so
changed passenger side, but still humming but worse got drivers front
wheel bearing change 6 months ago. When turning left at roughly 30mph
it's worse but a lot quieter when turning right. Someone says it's the
front diff but wouldn't the diff humm and wine all the time and not
get worse or less noise when turning left or right???

  • Subject : Noise
    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
    make, model, year and gearbox/hi-lo ratio etc of your particular
    vehicle, so the following may/not apply?
    Is your vehicle permanent
    4WD? Or is it selectable? Does it have auto- engaging hubs? Do you
    know if these work properly..i.e. if they actually are
    disengaging?
    If both sides are disengaged the steering effort is
    slight. Both engaged, the steering effort is high. One side not
    disengaged will pull strongly towards that side.
    Please get back
    to us with more details if this does not fit your situation....

      Answers

      James, take
      your vehicle to a mechanic. Anyone that can't tell the difference
      between a radiator cap and a breather cap NEEDS to see a mechanic. you
      have probably done other damage to the vehicle and you will do more
      damage if you don't go and see a mechanic. John Smith from New

  • 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
    action.
    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
    happens.
    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
Trevor
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.

    You would be wise to start by replacing that No1 sensor, as that is

    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!

  • Subject : Starting
    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
    released.
    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
    again.
    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....

        generic Bosch rather than paying retail at Nissan dealers...you'll see
        why when you price it.
        It's not a biggie to replace the injector
        yourself, or if you don't want to do this, give it to your mechanic to
        do. Then after replacement, clear all the codes, drive the vehicle and
        see if any other codes come up and if driveability improves..which it
        will.

        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....

    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.

    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.

    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

on it sent off with no fault found! Nissan have also checked all

not function full stop not this constant intermittent problem? Any

    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..

        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.

      Yes, you can take them out and turn them a spline or two tighter as
      well..but you risk them snapping violently under this extra pressure.
      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

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!
Cheers

    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.

          Hey John, Was under truck again today re-checked an lube pins, shafts
          etc on all four calipers again. Flexi hoses seem all good no cracks
          ,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??
          etc.
          Cheers Scottie

    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.
    I have
    not seen anything on this site suggesting someone has already done
    this swap.

    As above..SERVICE THE TRANS. Start by dropping the pan on the trans,
    reading the debris in the filter, renewing the fluid in the trans
    etc...before spending huge amounts of time and money on taking things
    apart and replacing them.
