How to switch on/off rear wiper(boot door) of Nissan terrano r3m-r

  • Subject :
    On the lower edge of the dash to the left of the steering column on a right hand drive terrano is the on/off wiper and washer switch, it rocks left and right to activate.
    If it does not work, the first thing to do is to check the fuse box (under the dash, far right side, next to the bonnet release, and then if the fuse is OK, go to the rear wiper and squirt lubricant down the shaft as far as you can, because the shaft can and will bind through neglect and lack of lubricant.
    If all that doesn't work take the interior panel off the rear door and check the wiring continuity to the wiper motor, them the wiper motor itself....

Subject : 4x4 switch
I have a 2003 more Maverick.

As the manual that comes with the car is for the previous model I am not sure how the 4x4 switch works. When I click it on the 4x4 light on the dash lights up. Does this mean that when the light is on the car is in 4 wheel drive mode and when off means 2 wheel drive

Subject : No Power - Ignition
Dear All

I am new to the forum. Mu grand father was trying to start his SSANGYONG jeep by using the jump leads as his battery was low. As he was doing it, he had the leads connected to his battery and as he was connecting the leads to the other car, he dropped the leads on the engine frame of the other car and BIG SPARK. Now his jeep lights, horn, radio all works but when he turns the ignition...there are no lights in the dash board. Would any of you be able to point me in the right direction what can I do to get the power back on. I thank you all for your help.

    Don't panic. Ssangyong's just seem to have too many management systems to override simple issues. Its a safety mechanism. I have had the same problem. It is probably a simple blown fuse on your brake light system. Perhaps you are towing a trailer or have a short in the wiring harness. Pop the fuse cover to the righthand side of the dash and from memory its a blue 15 amp. Sometimes you may also need to check fuses in the main fuse box under the bonnet. Good luck.

Hi my Visco fan has stuck on,2.7i inter cooler 2001 it roars like a lion every where I go, want to dump it and fit a Kenlowe/equivalent electric fan anybody fitted one, whats the size I fit best supplier, having difficulty getting hold of kenlowe someone said they had gone bust...

  • Subject : Electric cooling fan
    Take a good hard look at the space available between the water pump pulley and the radiator after you have taken away the fan itself and the viscous coupling.
    Measure it.
    Now try and find any thin electric fan of any brand which will fit there.

    When you find it, buy it.

    You will also have to purchase a fitting that inserts in your top radiator hose and which houses a temp sensor, and wire that to a variable
    switch gizmo with relays so you can set the on and off temps for the electric fan.
    Plus wiring in the fans themselves including fuses etc.

    The theoretical size limit for the electric fan is one that covers the largest amount of the radiator.

    You don't have to go by the size of the present shroud as the electric fan sucks up right against the core, and when it is not working air flows through from the vehicle's forward movement.

    Whereas the viscous fan has to have a certain amount of clearance to cope with the possibility of the engine moving both sideways and back and forth, hence the plastic fan shroud....

    It's not a great deal of trouble to take the radiator out (disconnect the auto trans hoses of course0 and replace the viscous fan coupling..usually they come attached to a new water pump as well.
    Look up the youtube videos on how to repair and set the viscous coupling to work properly.

      Thanks for that, just had an email from Kenlowe they no longer manufacture aftermarket fans or give advice it's a sad day as I have used them for years. Not much distance between viscous coupling and radiator but I guess I could squeeze on in, will try demon tweeks.
      Thanks guys

  • Subject : rexton 54 plate eml
    Boost pressure will 9/10 times be related to crud build up on the sensor and or the EGR valve itself.

    You need to lift the cover over the engine off and then boost pressure sensor is the sensor on right side as you look towards the windscreen that's mounted on the inlet manifold. There's two sensors close but one is the rail pressure switch.

    I'm Essex based but have a tool that can read codes and check activation. Unfortunately I can't programme injectors or re-learn the HP pump or I will have solved my IMV fault by now on my 2006 Rex 2.7

I have owned my Nissan terrano regulus for 3 years now. I had it imported......it came with a Japanese manual so I have done alot of researching.......i recently converted my electronic injection pump to a mechanical one as the electronic one failed.

I have recently noticed an antifreeze leak.....I traced it to the side of the engine......took it to a garage....if standing infront of the car facing the engine.......its leaking from the left side.

There is a cover there.....which the Mechanic can take off. But being an extremely rare vehicle here....no one has knowledge of what is under the cover....we believe it is either the frost plugs or possibly a gasget.

I'm just trying to order the parts I need so it can be fixed.

FYI all of my parts take 4 weeks to get here as I only know of a supplier in Japan.

Please help.

  • Subject : rear passenger window won't open
    Could be coincidence, the motor could have burnt out, the module in the door which senses obstructions could have fritzed itself, there may be no power getting to that door, the lead in wire 9look for a rubber coated couple of wires going from the pillar to the door) may have been broken for one reason or another, the switch either in the driver's control or on the door itself could be stuffed....you will need to get out the voltage meter and see what is going on. The motor is common to a lot of Nissans, you just have to get the one that is for the right or left hand side of the car (opposite rotation). The serial number on the motor will tell you which to get from a wreckers..simple to disassemble the door, take out the motorised track and replace the motor when it is out of the car.

    I bought the same truck about a year ago now and like you love it. I have the same year as yours and I have got the back seats out on a few occasions but normally by luck than anything else. One thing I do always do though I move the middle row out the way and fold the backs all the way forward then on both mounting points there is a rather strong metal lever which you flip over I think. I can't remember fully and sometimes it take some messing about. I haven't noticed any red tabs or anything that actually show you what to pull.

    I, too, have and am still experiencing the old "sticks in first when cold, especially after coming to a stop at traffic lights within 2 km of home"
    My solution which has worked so far is to pull to the side of the road, engage reverse and back up 10 metres. This seems to loosen up whatever is sticking in the auto and it then drives normally for the rest of the day, week, month...until unpredictably the the problem hits again.
    you have done what I did, new filter, new fluid, and I even fitted an extra in line filter with a magnet as well as pleated paper core to eliminate all possible ferrous particles etc down to X microns.
    I will see if I can locate a problem flow chart re the trans and let you know what i find.

  • Subject :
    Believe it or not, Steve, it is the bushes at the ends of the radius arms, which being OEM rubber, degrade and allow the axle to move forwards and backwards under acceleration and deceleration..but not equally at each side, thereby steering the vehicle causing it to "wobble".
    But you need to replace the panhard rod bushes, too.
    You will need a very good hydraulic press because the rubber bushes are surrounded by a steel sleeve, and the steel sleeves rust very solidly into the bush formed in the radius arm.
    Using a hyrdraulic 20 ton press with a socket just the right size to exert pressure on the edge of the bush sleeve...scary but doable, and be prepared for a big bang when the rust loses it's grip...
    Supercheap or Repco can order all the bushes in, or if you know the right people in the trade it shouldn't take long to source them. they are also advertised on TME, of course.
    I used Nolathane from Aussie, so far have only done the lower control arms, the upper are shorter so have less effect on the steering, and as OEM they have lasted over 220k without signs of cracking.
    plenty of Google-Fu will get some amazing complaints made to the National Tranportation authority by Americans that have been scared to death of their killer vehicle, have replaced everything they thought could be causing it, only to finally find that they could have replaced the offending bushes by buying and then fitting ready made new arms in a couple of hours.......
    They are normal maintenance items, they are rubber and they wear out.
    Have fun....

      Thanks John . Pretty sure it has had the bushes done before as they look like the red nolathane ones . So are they easier to press out than the OEM bushes?

        If they have been done once before, they should be easier to press out the second time..unless they have been immersed in water a lot, crossing rivers, launching boats etc.....
        IIRC the Nolathane bushes are assembled by pressing in the poly bushes first, then inserting the steel inner bush. Reversing this procedure might help with easy withdrawal....

Any help on the following would be great:
i) Oil is getting into the cooling system, the engine runs great with no excessive pressure in the cooling system-could it be the heat exchanger rather than the head gasket?
ii) the central locking goes up &down & you can easily be locked out with the keys still in the car.

First time 4x4 owner in need of knowledge.When I put my terrano 2 into four wheel drive it feels like it engages and the light comes on. But it doesnt work the front wheels or props but the truck still holds back in 4wd low range. Any ideas
Ash
Tiverton, Devon, UK - Thu 28th January 2016 07:11pm (GMT)
  • Subject : Mr
    How do you engage the 4WD system? Switch on dash, or lever on floor?

    If lever on floor, the linkage may be frozen with rust.

    Crawl under the vehicle with the engine off, Hi\Lo selector in 2H.
    Try and turn the front drive shaft by hand.
    If the hubs are engaging, you will be able to turn a small amount and hear the click in the front hubs as the splines engage, then the shaft will be locked in to the hubs.
    On a level surface, with the main gearbox transmission in neutral, the handbrake off, you will be able to move the vehicle forward just by turning the front prop shaft by hand.
    Then if you spin the shaft back the other way, you will hear the hubs disengage and the shaft will freewheel.
    This is what happens when you drive in reverse to unlock the front hubs...


    Now you will know that the front hubs engage IF the prop shaft is turned.

    The only way to turn that shaft normally is to select 4WD, high or low.

    If you have 4 axle stands and a good hydraulic jack, and don't mind taking a small chance at disaster, jack both front and rear axles off the ground and suspend them on the axle stands so no wheels are touching the ground.
    You can brace the chassis with other axle stands, or large flat pieces of wood, as long as you do not allow the braces anywhere near the wheels...

    Carefully get into the vehicle and start the engine. With the main gearbox in neutral (or park with an auto) move the 4wd selector to 4 low.
    Now select 1st gear and let out the clutch.
    Use a helper to see if at least one of the front wheels are spinning, and at least one of the rear wheels.



    I say one of the wheels at each axle because normally the front diff is neither "locked", nor Limited slip diff (LSD) and sometimes the rear axle is not "locked" or even fitted with a Limited slip differential either.
    LSD means one wheel will spin faster than the other, but the slower one will "kick" periodically as if trying to catch up with the spinning wheel..thereby giving limited traction....3 wheel drive rather than 2

    If the rear wheel (s) spin, but the fronts do not move, degungify the Hi/Lo lever where it enters the box until the mechanism moves smoothly and freely.

    DEGUNGIFYING MUST TAKE PLACE WITHE THE VEHICLE BACK ON THE GROUND< ENGINE OFF< IN PARK OR NEUTRAL WITH HANDBRAKE ON>>>>please.

    Basically, if you wait more than a couple of years before moving the levers, they will rust up through salt, grime, snow, water etc.

    Preventative maintenance is simple; once a month, all through the year find s green lane with mud or wet grass or a gravelled road with a loose shingle surface and engage the system and give it a workout.
    Any surface that allows slippage of the wheels so the transmission does not "wind up" and ensure that a very expensive steel part does not go "ping"

    Get back to us if you want further info, but a visit to your local library should provide a fund of 4WD how-to books for your edification and delight.

Anyone else got this problem.? Drive for awhile and then stop for some reason.. Drive on and in a short while the temp gauge goes up and the overheat alarm starts beeping. It is not overheating at all but it is bloody annoying. You can pull the chime fuse for a quiet life but while it is in this mood the aircon does not function. A serious drawback on a warm day downunder.. Cheers, Geoff.

    I have a Rexton doing the same thing.
    From what I heard this is common on the earlier models, (2005). Although it seems like an electrical issue, its actually the thermostat. Replace that, the gasket, flushing and changing the coolant solves the problem.
    I'm yet to do mine.

    Early one do not have ECU, are all mechanical thank you Lord...
    Just to clarify....
    Does starter motor turn over engine quickly as per normal, or slowly..perhaps too slowly to start engine? (starter/contacts/battery problem, wet starter motor internals, dirt/sand?)
    Have you tried spraying WD40 into intake of turbo while someone else spins engine over on starter?
    WD40 will allow engine to start and run while the spray is going into the turbo intake.
    If engine starts using the WD40 you have an injection problem, probably the injection pump/lines/injectors full of water.
    One last thing, have you replaced the air filter, and checked that the old filter didn't dissolve/come apart and block the air intake to the engine...

    Give us more info....

    P.S. 4WD clubs teach you that the first thing to do when attempting the crossing of a body of water is to try to find a bridge.

    Most likely you drove through deep water like a stream or even the sea, like when launching or recovering a boat, and water has gotten into the transmission, foamed up and expanded, pushing the foamy mix out the breather. Drain and refill all the axles and gearboxes, as the water you drove through may have gotten into all of them, and it is better to be safe than sorry...

                        Whatever coolant additive you have in the system will leave a trace of that colour from any leak..so go over the exterior of the engine with the engine off but hot as in just after a good run.. Pay special attention around the water pump area; it is obviously happening when the system is hot, and the pressure in it is 14lbs sq inch. If the leak is external, fine droplets will come out then and should leave a mark, or a very clean patch somewhere on the engine...
                        Otherwise you will have to pressurise the system by attaching a special pump to the radiator neck, and look for leaks. It may come to having to take out the injectors after leaving the pressure on for say 48 hours, and seeing if coolant comes out of any cylinder when you spin the engine over with the starter, as the coolant will be thrown out as the pistons go up and down...That would confirm a head gasket breach into the cylinder. The leak could also be into the engine oil galleries so look for more than usual- in- winter moisture induced emulsion. (Creamy foamy oil) Good luck.

    Hi
    Did you disconnect battery depress brake pedal count to 30 with it depressed
    This clears codes from system.
    OBD11 useless I to have the Mazda conversion lead and scanner. Only way forward is to get it in on a £1000 machine
    Clearing codes may help
    Or google Mazda mx5 diagnostic wire. Either make one with 12 volt neon or buy it fabricated from eBay Count the flashes and pauses and Google Ranger / Mazda B2500 results
    Follow the connection instructions and it does work. Don't rush as its live wires and could cook the fuses etc.
    The flash cycle is repeated in a continuous loop
    I have the full Ford/Mazda workshop manual on CD as PDF files
    No diagnostics though £9.00 email thebeeches2@gmail.com

    Google the wire to piggy back the diagnostic box. It comprises of a bridge wire and 2wires joined with a 12 volt neon. Plug the wires into diagnostic box WITH CARE live feed and turn ignition on and wait for the flashes. Note the sequence and google the result
    eBay had the wires listed for MX5 diagnostics. I bought one It worked but I got conflicting codes?

Recently brought my truck,an was running good, had a little miss but nothing to bad, drove around and seemed fine. It had an oil leak so I put in the shop to replace the crank seals,filters, belts etc.Cost me thousands.. Finally got it back from the shop, drove 10kms if that and it cut out on me. Revs when high, the dropped an died.(lucky I jst threw it into neutral). It runs goid when cold, but once warmed up and I slow down it dies out?
Took it back to the shop, he reckoned nothings wrong, so gave it back. Same thing happened again? So third time now and its back there.
The mechanic has said its eitha the air flow meter, manifold leaking or no gas getting to it?

    Presume this is front wheel drive with all the weight at the front? Any big (that is much bigger than an old Mini) front wheel drive car has the weight distribution all wrong, all at the front, even front seat passengers sit forward of the centre line between the axles. Try to slow down (or worse brake) in a bend and the car will try to spin especially in the wet due to weight transfer from the back wheels, no downfroce equals no grip). Learn to keep the foot on the power or get a RWD?. You could check to make sure the rear brake shut off valve is working properly (they can clog up with muck and rust) if this situation happened when braking.

  • Subject : stalling
    The stalling after a couple of minutes: are you actually driving along at over 20mph, or under 20 and / or coming to a stop or trying to accelerate away?
    The reason behind the question is that the starting on the button means the glow plugs are obviously working at the start; however there is a tricky little relay which activates until the temperature of the coolant reaches 50c, or the speed of the vehicle reaches/exceeds 20mph.
    This relay cycles the glow plugs to keep "the fire lit", so to speak.
    How quickly can you restart after the engine stops?
    When the engine is warmed up, normal operating temperature, is there any stalling/stuttering then?
    Have you recently done any maintenance, e.g. changed fuel filter, changed battery etc etc?
    You could test the operation of the glow plugs by connecting a multi meter to the buss bar that connects all the plugs together and noting the voltage at start, and the lower voltage that occurs when the relay cycles the glow plugs at a lower voltage until the parameters are met to cease operation...

Subject : Thinking of buying a Mazda B2500
Ok, I'm looking to buy a Mazda B2500 4x4 Pick Up (been told it's the same as a Ford Ranger) to replace my old pick up which is sadly giving up on me.

I don't know much about the Mazda but went to view one earlier today and have a couple of questions I hope someone could answer for me.

1. I had a look under the body before starting the engine (engine was cold), oil level looked good and no sludge under the oil cap. The coolant level on the expansion tank was where it should be too but when I removed the radiator cap some of the coolant spurted out. Is this normal? My old Bedford Pick Up with over 300k miles on the clock doesn't even do that. Could someone please tell me if this seems normal or not?

2. I took it for a test drive, it started first time, engine sounded good and drove really well. When I got back to the place selling it and turned off the ignition there was a few beeping noises coming from somewhere? Are these normal for this type of vehicle?

3. What are the common problems for this vehicle?

It's a 2003 Mazda B2500 2.5TD 4 Action Pick Up with 90000 miles on the clock, the bodywork was in good condition, interior was good although a bit dirty in places.

If anyone could answer the above questions it would be greatly appreciated.

    Doug,
    You have two choices...
    if you are happy at all other times with the performance of the vehicle,but it is too underpowered for towing...reduce the size of the caravan, or slow down and enjoy life in the slow lane.

    If you can't stand the performance of the vehicle overall, and it's getting you down, change your vehicle to one with higher horsepower.
    The 3.0 is known to be weak on horsepower, and in Aus and NZ has the least hp of all it's competitors.

    You can't change that.
    You could install a new more powerful engine, but you would create an orphan.

    Your choice.
    Spend money on better cooling system, new radiator, extra electric fans, aux engine oil cooler and extra large auto trans cooler (with fans) and still lack hp uphill, or change the vehicle....

Subject : Can you reset speedometer on a second hand unit?
I recently had to change the dashboard on my Mitsubishi Shogun due to a malfunction on the temperature gauge. The unit I brought was second hand and when installed the mileage showed up at over 50,000 miles more than was on my car! Is there anyway I can reset it to the original mileage of the car?

Subject : Terrano II Turbo
Hi there. I have happily had my 2000 2.7 TDI Terrano II for 13 years. No major mechanical problems. However, I have noticed that I no longer hear the sound of the turbo when it kicks out at cruise speed. Consumption has increased. Could it be that the turbo stays on? Or could it be a pipe that has worn or cracked. Mileage 277 000 odd kms.
This lady would appreciate any advice.

    check very carefully all the rubber piping to and from the turbo intake for any splits, holes etc. take the rubber hoses off and bend and twist them because the rubber could be perished and either let air out, or let unfiltered, unmetered air in.
    If you have access to a pressure gauge, attach it to to a point on the pressurised side of the intake manifold and read the pressure while driving, accelerating, backing off, and cruising.
    Also check the inter cooler for oil leaks. If you can see where oil is leaking out, there is a hole...this will let out the turbo pressurised air.
    The oil that goes through the intercooler is blow by fumes from the engine..it comes from the tappet cover, down a small tube and into the rubber air intake hose between the air filter and the turbo mouth.
    You can take the whole inter cooler off and clean it out. It can be done b y sloshing a good amount of petrol through it several times until the petrol comes out without oil in it, but if you do this let it stand outside for 24 hours for all the fumes to dissipate..otherwise big boom in engine and lots of repairs needed.....
    By cleaning the inter cooler it restores the efficiency of cooling the turbo pressurised air which provides more power.

    I had the same problem took me very long to figure it out. Check the 2 vacuum pipes next to the battery, the vacuum pipes are connected to a sensor just underneat the battery. If the vacuum pipes are cracked that's your answer. Cost less than 20 bucks to replace.

  • Subject : Oil smell
    When you open any window of a vehicle moving at speed, there is a vacuum produced which sucks air in through every available gap..which on WD21 Terranos includes the area of the gear selectors/handbrake/console. The gearbox is right there, and the front diff vent will give off a sulphur smell when hot.
    So, to combat this, as Steve said, check for actual leaks from the seals of the transfer case, front diff and manual gearbox. Without jacking the vehicle up (if it is a Terrano) you should be able (depending on your size) to crawl under with a torch (flashlight) and have a look up into the console area between the seats where the gear sticks enter the cabin, and see if the gaiters/packing have tears or have rotted away through old age and heat.
    The way to combat the leak of hot smelly air is to put the ventilation controls on fresh air, the fan on at least 1, and depending on the heat, turn the a/c on as well.
    Leave the windows wound up.
    While the fan is working it will boost pressure in the cabin, keeping the smells and transmission heat out.

A bad maf sensor , bad water temp probe.bad crankshaft sensor these will all turn off fuel to protect motor.each sensor has to be probed to see there is 5 volt and some also have added 12 volt supply and to measureresistance.dont no why they changed injectors, and engine management system. there is obviously no power getting to injectors to open them to deliver fuel.the fuel line can be covered and carefulley opened at inj while cranking to see if fuel leaks at great pressure. i had my car at dealer to have ball joints done for recall job, you should have seen the look on there faces when , i started the car in 10 seconds for them,they looked at me and asked ,how did you do that, we couldnt start it

      I have tried loosening High Pressure Lines at the Common Rail and cranking engine to bleed fuel lines but no help. After cranking the low pressure hand priming pump does not remain hard so I think there is a problem with air in fuel lines or possibly IMV valve cutting off fuel at high pressure side or Injectors not firing?

  • Subject : tie rod ends
    The taper of the ball joint has to be drawn up tight by the castellated nut; this takes quite a lot of effort but is perfectly normal..and one of the reasons you have to usually use a pickle fork device or a screw driven device to unseat the taper when disassembling it.
    If the nut winds onto the thread easily before you use it to draw the taper into position all should be well....
    But do ensure that the tie rod ends that you bought are the right ones...if the taper is way out, the threaded part way short, then you may have been sold the wrong tie rod ends.
    Compare the old with the new..steepness of taper, overall length of threaded part etc.....
    Parts assistants have been known to make mistakes.
    After you get it all back together, get a professional wheel alignment done. Talk to the mechanic and ask him to run his eye over the work you have done?????

    As an example, the 1991 Japanese WD21 Terrano can be fitted with one of three different drag links in the steering...and the changeover was around July/August/September of that year.

        Jack up and take off wheel.
        Disconnect parking brake and brake tube.
        Look in behind the backing plate, locate the four nuts which hold the baffle plate to the axle housing and remove these nuts.
        Construct a puller that attaches to two of the wheel studs and attached to that a slide hammer (dent puller)to draw out the axle.
        The reason the axle is hard to withdraw is that where it fits into the diff carrier it is splined and pushed in..a friction fit.
        Once the axle is out, there is an oil seal left in the hole, remove it and replace with new.
        Coat seal and axle splines with diff oil and Carefully push the axle back into place without ripping your nice new oil seal and line up the holes in the axle housing with the studs.
        You may have to knock the axle back into place with dead blow hammer after all the splines are lined up with the carrier in the diff, and then tighten the nuts you removed when the studs go through the holes in the axle housing.
        Reattach the parking brake and tube.

My manual does not have the wiring diagram for the colours of the wires in the car.

Hi there,

Just got a Terrano 1990 - 2.7 Turbo diesel a month ago. Never had a 4wd before and I am not so sure if the brakes are working as they should for a truck.

So basically when I hit the brakes on a flat road they work fine, lock the wheels if I want and hold the car strongly.

The problem happens when downhill. If I am going down for more than 500 metres and I am pushing the brakes constantly they start loosing efficiency and sometimes the brake light in the dashboard flashes. I can still brake, but I have to push harder and the pedal does not go all the way down anymore. As an example in that situation I can't lock the wheels cause the brakes are not efficient enough.

Is that how it suppose to behave on a truck? Loose efficiency when used non-stop for a period of time?

    Your truck weighs about 1800kg and requires a lot of braking effort to stop.
    You probably have disc brakes on all 4 wheels? If not you will have discs at the front, and drums at the rear.
    All types of brakes will lose efficiency when activated for a long period of time. Google brake pad boiling gases etc.
    As the pads become hotter, the surface of the pads where it touches and rubs the disc actually boils away as a gas. Gas produces little friction..braking effect goes away......

    When going downhill, select a lower gear, especially in an automatic gearbox vehicle..say click off the overdrive, which then leaves you in 3rd gear,then when the hill gets steeper, select 2nd gear, when it gets really steep use the brakes to drop your speed down to 10mph or less and select 1st..this will hold the vehicle to a low speed even on a very steep hill.
    Yes, the engine might rev to almost 4000rpm, so what? It won't blow apart, it uses hardly any diesel fuel, and it will rapidly cool the radiator and engine down.
    If you really can't stand the noise brake hard to a comfortable speed or below, release the brakes so they can cool, and let the engine slowly rev up again.Repeat ad nauseum.

    Go back up through the gears as the incline decreases.

    Use the gears when decelerating downhill, and keep the brakes in reserve.

    Yes, Google "brake fade" and learn what happens with continuous riding of the brakes....

    Ultimately you can lose all brakes when the brake fluid gets so hot that it boils the water which invariably is sucked into the fluid because common brake fluids attract water over time, and vehicle brake systems have vent holes in the reservoir caps which allows water laden air in; this forms droplets which fall to the lowest point in the brake circuits...the wheel calipers.
    The steam produced inside the caliper is compressible, and your foot goes to the floor...no brakes.
    After you have crashed, the fluid cools, the steam becomes water and voila...the brakes will work perfectly again for the crash investigator.

    So, every 2 years drain the brake fluid out of the reservoir by sucking it out, refill with new fluid, get a friend to help gently and partially pump the brake pedal,(put some wood under the pedal between it and the floor to restrict the movement to the area in the master cylinder that normal braking uses) and crack each bleeder at each caliper, starting at the furthest away from the reservoir, and pump new fluid through all the brake system to ensure that the fluid has the least possible accumulation of water.Keep the reservoir topped up all the time so no air bubbles get in the system.

    Google hygroscopic brake fluid, and flushing brake lines, and the various types of brake pads that work well either when cold, slightly heated, or for out and out racing situations..which only work when hot...and which are definitely not recommended for streeet use........

          Yes brakes are quite important . He said the brake light was coming on when pumping the brakes . This would normally mean low brake fluid . In our old mistral if you pumped the brakes really hard at an idol the brake light would come on and an alarm would sound when it lost all the brake boost pressure . Once you stopped pumping the brakes the pressure built up again really quickly and light and buzzer would go off . Never did it under normal driving conditions .

            So the Mistral lost vacuum quicker than it could be built up at idle and with high pressure on the brake pedal...which would make sense...and could also be part of the problem with him riding the brakes going downhill...he would run out of vacuum assist, because the engine would only be idling, and therefore the pedal would only go down a little, and would need 60% more effort to depress, which would feel like his brakes had gone away.
            Bingo!
            Another damn good reason to select a lower gear..that speeds up the engine and produces more vacuum, perhaps overcoming some of his crap braking technique...at least until his pads fade or his brake fluid boils.
            Nice one Steve....

    On main line from vacuum pump to the powerbrakes is a T connection were vacuum is to the Modulators for EGR and VGT and front locking hubs. This T has a very narrow hols which will block or almost block. Disconnect and run a fine wire through from all directions. Air coming when modulators release will gather rust like dirt and block the canals.

Subject : Terrano front end bounce
Hi. I have recently purchased a Terrano which is on an 03 plate. I have noticed that the front end is very soft and bouncy on the suspension and I am wondering if it is the shockers or can anyone advise me if there are any bushes which may need replacing as I have noticed it is on torsion bars and not springs (sorry for any mis spellings).

  • Subject : Terrano front end bounce
    I am on my 3rd set of front shocks on my Japanese WD21 Terrano which is now 24 years old with 212,000 kilometres.
    The original shocks got to be just like yours, more bounce to the ounce and more slam to the gram at 100,000km, (62,000 miles) and I replaced them with Munroe 4x4 Adventurer shocks.These lasted another 100,000km.
    My advice is to replace your shocks and their bushes (which should come with them) as soon as possible and then check the ride quality.
    Do the rear shocks as well, especially if the vehicle tends to skip the rear end sideways on gravel corrugations..a sure sign of worn out shocks.
    If you get creaks, groans, slams or bangs sounding like a large piece of metal is loose when going round corners, replace all the front sway bar (anti roll bar) bushes including link bushes with polyurethane ones.
    If you feel or can see that the front suspension has sagged with age, (less clearance between tyre and fender) follow the torsion bars back until you can see the adjusters. Raise the front end of the vehicle off the ground, loosen the lock nut, give the adjusters 3 full turns each side and lower the vehicle back down and go for a ride to allow it to settle back down. This tweaking can only be done up until a certain point, and then you risk snapping the bar because it becomes restricted in it's travel. Regard the torsion bars as wound up springs......
    See also "Pathfinder death wobble" in regards to the bushes in the rear suspension links which locate the rear axle to the body.
    As far as i am concerned, having done all the above, this falls under normal maintenance and makes the vehicle behave in an "as new" way.

    Hi
    Check the plugs under both front seats
    They can easily be dislodged Or become loose or more likely dirty
    Unplug them and replica them a few times
    If you have some switch cleaner give them a spray
    Check the fuses again remove and reconnect
    Fault codes can be short term killed by disconnecting the battery and reconnection MAKE sure you have your radio code. If the fault still exists the code will return. Normally displayed as a sequence of glow plug lamp flashes. These are Google available

                By all means check glow plugs and replace if necessary, but if these symptoms reoccur no matter what temperature the engine is at, then there seems to be a problem relating to the amount of fuel or air being fed to the engine.
                Check air filter and replace if necessary.
                Trace and check all air inlet piping looking for possible collapse points, tears etc.
                Replace fuel filter, (fill new one with clean new fuel before tightening it into housing) trace fuel line round to injector pump, remove banjo bolt inlet to pump, carefully pull out small gauze filter that should be there and clean same, use primer to squirt fuel through, check flow for fine bubbles (sometimes diaphragm on filter primer tears and induces air into system), then put it all back together again.Pump that primer until it goes solid while checking for leaks, start and rev engine in park to 2500rpm and hold it there for a minute so that any trace of air will be gone, then drive and see if that helps.

    Hi!I had a 2006 kyron and it had the same noise that you are talking about.It was only when a friend of mine who was a mechanic came for a drive one day asked me if that noise wrecked my head that I found out the problem.I assumed that they were just aloud jeep and didnt think there was a problem.He told me that the viscous fan was seized which would cause more fuel consumption and the loud noise.I ordered a new one online for €220 and he only charged me €50(Mates rate but it shouldnt cost much more than €100) to install it.The difference was unreal.Sounds just like a normal diesel vehicle now and you can hear yourself think again.Hope this helps

Subject : Shogun Cutting Out
I have a 2003 Shogun 3.2 did. It has a problem of cutting out as soon as you engage gear (auto box. At first the thought was fuel pump, tank etc but all this has proved to be good. Even off a separate fuel supply it revs, returns to tick over, but as soon as drive is selected it dies. Any ideas please?

Subject : noise after clutch change
I have just had a garage fit a comple clutch kit in my shogun warrior sport after the thrust bearing started to squeal. Since I picked the motor back up I get what people are describing as a 'chatter' which goes when I put my foot on the clutch. I spoke to the garage that fitted the clutch and the only answer I get is that it's 'the nature of the beast!' They all do it!! This didn't do it before so surely it can't be gearbox related or down to gearbox oil change which was done when the clutch was fitted. Any pointers or the smallest amount of help would be greatly appreciated. The only thing I will add us that I am sure it was not fitted with a Mitsubishi original part, but would this make such a noise on tick-over? Many thanks in advance .

    Hi Torre,
    Happy to help you solve your following problem. "Temp gauge drops to 0 on highway".This can easily be solved by adding coolant. Add engine coolant above marked max. level. Make sure to fill 3 to 4 cm above marked level.
    Check Engine light and shut off Air Conditioner by itself (you should notice if AC is on when temp gauge drops) is a indication of fault and precaution.So this should also solved.
    Please report progress.

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 ??

      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.

    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 idle..in 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 fuel???
    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?

                Hi john . Yes we cleaned the MAF when we were trying to sort out the first problem when it would not rev out, and the pipe split right beside the turbo intake so any dirty air was not going past the MAF .
                The new rubber flex pipe is quite a bit firmer than the old one and the old one had split in a different place . I know someone round here who had the same pipe on a navara with the zd30 motor and didnt notice until the motor let go . Several grand later....
                Pretty sure we only did a couple of trips to town with no gravel work before we noticed the split. I would imagine there are lots of nissans out there with this pipe split and not really visible unless you actually inspect the pipe physically with your hand . So nissan owners keep an eye on this !!!

Brake pedal is not as firm as it was and randomly the pedal will travel excessive distance before activating brakes, pedal may even travel full distance,other than this the brakes are fully functional, ie no other symptoms, any suggestions please!

    There's a star wheel inside the rear drums that you can adjust to take up the wear of your shoes (normally done automatically by a ratchet device near the star wheel). To get the drum off you'll need to buy two 8mm bolts and screw them into the holes in the drum which forces it off.

      Thanks for your input, now sorted. It turned out to be the master cylinder, but in the course of investigating also found that the reverse face of all 4 discs were very badly corroded so had all 4 plus pads replaced. Happily all covered by warantee.

    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 factors...you 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..

Subject : Problems with changing gears
I have a 09 2.7 Rexton.

Recently the transmission has developed a problem. I can't change gears unless I start the vehicle in gear and don't take my foot completely off the clutch.

This started one night my wife was going to take the Rexton out. She didn't get very far only about 100yards before she stopped the vehicle because she could not change up. And that the clutch pedal was on the floor. and that the "WD4low" light was on.

I got there and lifted the pedal up. the pedal felt stiff. I then put the vehicle in 1st, started the vehicle as it lurched forward. I managed to get it home. Than I was able to start it in reverse and for some reason I could then shift to 1st and then 2nd and back to first again.

But if I put the car in neutral, take my foot off the clutch, I can than not get it into any gears. I have to turn off the engine, shift into gear an then I can setup.

The only think is that putting into WD4low did something. I hope the wife wasn't driving on the motorway with that on!

How should I start on this. The Rexton has rarely been driven. It has 10000 miles on it. Bit early for the clutch to go.

I certainly hope you can help out.

Sal.

    Hi Sal,

    It sounds like when your wife drove the car in 4x4 low, the drive wheels have spun on themselves. When you drive in low you must not drive on dry/wet flat tarmac.

    Try putting car in 4x4low and reverse the car as long as you can.

    Hopefully this should put the wheels correctly

      Hi Ben,
      It happened quite a few times and we explained to the mechanic what was happening, but he said he'd never heard of the problem and to bring it in whilst it was revving.
      Each time, we made to go to the garage, we'd get within 100 yards and annoyingly the engine would return to normal revs!
      Eventually it happened less and less and we haven't had any problems with it for over a year, so unfortunately, we are still none the wiser. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I hope the problem with your engine rectifies itself as well. If you get a 'diagnosis' I'd be interested to hear what it is. Thanks

    They have vacuum pipes that suck the front hubs into place so they are then connected to the gearbox. On my Korando (and many others) they came off and the metal parts had rusted away so I couldn't just reconnect pipes.

    If you look behind your front wheels just above the center CV joints there are flexible hoses, 1 per side. Follow them go to a little box on the inner wing. This box has 1 electrical connector block and 1 hose that connected to the back of the engine. Check that the electrical connector is working and in place. If you're careful and confident you can disconnect the hoses to check them. Get somebody to select 4wd and the box should allow suction to the pipes that go to the wheels, feel for it. If there is suction then check the whole length of the hoses for holes, all the way to the back of the hubs. If there are no leaks then the hub itself may not be airtight or the metal stubby pipes on the hub may be rotten (my problem).
    I tried several repairs and all worked for a time but I gave up in the end and bought manual locking hubs.
    If you are okay working on a car you can buy manual locking hubs and put them on yourself.
    It is an easy job but if you're not confident then get a mechanic to do it.
    If you do have manual hubs put on then it will mean that you will have to get out of the car to turn the hubs then get back in and select 4WD BUT it is a very good solution and extremely reliable.
    I got my hubs on Ebay for £100 a pair. The manual locking hubs have never failed me.
    This club is very good and there's lots of help here.

    This is a common problem and Mitsubishi knows about it and does nothing!OK if you look near your Turbo you will see connected to it the Wastegate which is lying horizontal and there is a diaphram connected by a rod that goes in and out when the Turbo is actuated.You can ether spray WD40 on it in case it is sticking. The other solution is if you follow the pipe down from the Wastegate to the engine you will see that it is connected by 2 nuts and the connection is oval.Make blank cover in metal and place it on top of the Gasket being careful not to break the fluted end of the pipe.This will then render the Wastegate as inoperative but will not affect your engine that you would notice.This in turn should stop the management light from coming on.I think that it also could be an electrical sensor problem giving the management system a false reading hence having waited for 30 secs thye system resets and off you go

  • Subject :
    Noberto, have you just bought the vehicle?
    Has this behaviour just started?
    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.

    Any 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 1.

    Any trouble codes or check engine lights show up?

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

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

    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 yourself..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 model?

  • 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 exhaust....
    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 clamps.
    Just wipe the outside every so often and ignore it for the rest.
    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 injection diesels which don't (or at least aren't supposed to) produce much visible emissions when revving the engine. I'll have to give the Terrano another consideration when shopping around this week.

        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) system?

        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...

    I am trying to decipher what you are telling me is the problem.
    The fan kicking in...is that a loud roaring sound from the engine compartment? Open your bonnet when the engine is cold and OFF. Check if you can rotate the white fan blades on the end of the water pump by hand. How difficult is it to turn the blades..is there 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 took the radiator out and gave it to a radiator shop to take the top and bottom tanks off and have the tubes rodded out?

    Could you get back to us with the results and we can go from there?

    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 get the geometry sorted.
    Note that for 35's you need to move the front diff forward for clearance either with spacers or drop boxes.

    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 brake.
    Check with a torch(flashlight) early each morning before you take off for work and see if there is rust there....
    The 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 brakes?
    Is there a possibility that there is a small stone trapped in between either the splash shield or the calipers and rotor?
    By replacing all the brake components and no doubt lubricating the pins upon which the calipers slide it leaves only rust or something that has attached itself since all new components were installed and whatever it is is along for the ride until you find it and fix it...

        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 problems.
        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 factor?
        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 pronto.

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?

  • Subject : Nissan Terrano 3 litre
    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 cope.
    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.
    If 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 "bang".
    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....

    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 it....

Subject : SMELL OF FUMES FROM ENGINE.
Hi, your help please.

My SUZUKI GRAND VITARA DIESEL 2011 (JT) SZ5 DDIS (45,000 mls on clock) recently developed a strong smell of fumes coming through the engine bulk head into the passengers area, checked underneath and oil was leaking from the rear drive transmission box, splashing up onto the body and dripping onto the hot exhaust, hence the smell I thought, had the seal replaced and rechecked and no oil escapes but still the smell is there ?
Rechecked and the smell is coming from the off-side of the engine department when the hood is open and engine running. Hood shut smell is strongest near the grill between the wind-screen and bonnet again on off-side.
Checked under bonnet with torch with engine running from underneath via my pit and from above, no sign of fumes escaping or hose split or oil leakage and no oil is being used / lost checking via the dip stick ????????
The smell is the same as that from my first car a Morris Minor that had a hose from the rocker box cover to the air filter into the carburetor which I used to remove from the air filter end and allow to hang loose as once the engine got old caused oil vapor to clog the air filter -------------THAT SMELL / FUMES is the smell I have now ?????
Any thoughts..

    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 pressure.
    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 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......

Ray Mynott
Fuengirola, Malaga, Spain - Tue 01st July 2014 11:29am (GMT)
  • 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.....

    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.

      recently imported my car from Uk to Botswana. By mistake i interchanged the radiator cap and the breather cap. Its no longer speeding as it used to do. gears are taking time to move to the next gear (automatic). i have changed, oil, filters but nothing has changed. Any idea what this might be. Please help. the car is Nissan Navara Aventura 2.5 DCI, AUTOMATIC , 2007 model. its hard to drive

      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 Zealand

Hi there, I have a 94 3.1ltr turbo diesel isuzu Bighorn. When I first brought the truck sometimes there would be a loud clunking noise when I was in 4x4 this happend until one day on the beach it just wouldnt go in to 4x4 which left me stuck in the sand. I then replaced the the auto hubs and it was away again for about a year and then the clunking noise was back and the same scenario occured once again. I hoping u guys can point me in the right direction as I don't want to get rid of my truck for this is the only trouvle ive had over the last seven years of owning it. But whitebait season is approching and my truck needs to be ready cheers look forward to a reply.

    Sounds like a break in a vacuum pipe. The first one that went on mine was a small U shaped rubber pipe that connects to a vacuum modulator at the front of the battery box, pence to fix, the next ones to go were the steel pipes that feed vacuum to the wheel hubs (to engage the free wheel hubs)This is a bit trickier to fix, I made up some small copper pipes and fixed them in place using some epoxy putty. No problems since.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Subject : Problem partly fixed!
Hello. My 2000 Musso 3200 is on dual fuel and has an intermittent problem on both fuels. Loss of power, gear changes become clunky, won’t change down when it should. Found that the top connector rubber boot, of the narrow plastic vacuum pipe from top of inlet manifold to gearbox, was perished and letting in air so we taped it up and this seal fixed the problem; thus I ordered a new replacement.
After installing the replacement I am getting the identical problem after I have driven around 15km and it won’t disappear on that journey. However, it appears that when I have parked for a while and start up, it’s fine again. IN all other respects, everything is working fine. Would appreciate any ideas about why I had the improvement but still have a problem. Thanks to all.

    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 rather than going through the dealer and paying very large amounts of money.

  • 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....

    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

    It could be a electrical short problem. You could have somebody sit in the car and try and move/jiggle the wiring to see if you can repeat the issue. Try it first with the car not running but with the ignition on. If that does not find anything then start it up and do the same thing being careful about the things moving and hot in the engine compartment.

    My 2006 Kyron has this same odd overheat warning that comes up without reason. The first time it happened I nearly freaked out but when I stopped I found there was nothing wrong. I restarted and drove on with no probs. You can do it at the red lights or pull over. I've found that sometimes you can just keep going and it will return to normal in a K or so. However, if you don't actually stop, it can keep going on and off and drive you crazy. The actual stop and switch off cures the problem. It seems to happen if you take a break for half an hour after running the highway for 2 or 3 hours. A shorter toilet break doesn't seem to trigger it. Maybe a steam bubble forms or the block overheats the sensors while it is temporarily switched off. The engine bay does not seem overheated. In any event I'm not going to blow bucks on something that I can live with. Apart from that, I'm happy with the car. Cheers, Geoff.

      Hi Geoff. Have you managed to locate the cause of your fault? Mine does the same, however only noticed it after the car has been for a run, and switching it off for a short while, then going for a run down the Highway. Won't fault on first startup! Took mine to the dealer whom replaced the sensor to no avail, then also told me my car is running too cold. The viscous clutch had seized and the fan is overcooling. having replaced that I do see my temp gauge float more on the half way point, but it still faults! The dealer said that my Thermostat is fine, but I'm not so sure. When I temp probe the hoses when the fault occurs I get 69*c at the top hose, 59*c at the bottom hose and my heater core hoses are about 45*c.... all seems a bit odd - perhaps too cold still.

      The workshop manual does say that the code will be caused by implausable coolant temp after warmup, and 69*c is certainly not normal after warmup! I'm thinking that my Thermostat is opening too early or randonly get stuck open! My local radiator place did a flush for me last week when fitting the viscous clutch, and also said that they suspect my radiator is partially blocked, because they get too much back-pressure when filling from the top!!! seems unrealistic as blocked radiators cause overheating to my knowledge!

      My 2006 Kyron 2.0 has same problem!!! My Temp alrm only goes off after a warm start! If starting from cold can run all day, but any stops and starting from warm, and the problem will occur almost every 5 - 20km.

      I had the Temp Sensor replaced today with Genuine new part, still has same error. Fault code P1115...

      Spoke with Autoelectrician whom first thought bad wiring or short circuit - but this does not make sense if driveable from cold start without error. Possibly ECU?? would love to know what the cause is if anyone has had it solved!!!!

    Hi There. Have you managed to locate the cause of your fault? Mine does the same, however only noticed it after the car has been for a run, and switching it off for a short while, then going for a run down the Highway. Won't fault on first startup... you can drive all day and it won't fault, unless you shut it down for a short while!

    I found turning off and back on resets it, but it will soon occur again unless you leave car off for an hour or so.

    Took mine to the dealer whom replaced the sensor to no avail (there is only one - under the intake manifold in side of engine block), then also told me my car is running too cold according to their computer. They came to the conclusion, that The viscous clutch had seized and the fan is overcooling. having replaced that I do see my temp gauge float more on the half way point, but it still faults! The dealer said that my Thermostat is fine, but I'm not so sure. When I temp probe the hoses when the fault occurs I get 69*c at the top hose, 59*c at the bottom hose and my heater core hoses are about 45*c.... all seems a bit odd - perhaps too cold still.

My local radiator place did a flush for me last week when fitting the viscous clutch, and also said that they suspect my radiator is partially blocked, because they get too much back-pressure when filling from the top!!! seems unrealistic as blocked radiators cause overheating to my knowledge!

    Also worth noting that the SSangyongs are very basic with their gauges... the half way mark actually represents a temperature between 70*c and 110*c obviously being the normal running range. Where does your's sit when driving for a few mins? Min sits just under half mark (below 70*c), and drops a bit when coasting down hills or on the highway.

    Certainly sounds like the water isn't being allowed to heat up!

    Further I can almost predict every time my alarm will go off based on the driving conditions!!!! It will never alarm in the city, only when running the highways! Therefore it cannot be electrical!!!!

Hi I have a V6 Frontera 53 plate a little while back I had a problem where the cooling system over pressurised causing damage to the rad, removed the heads thinking it was a head gasket had heads pressure tested and skimmed both heads passed test.

Re fitted the heads with all new gaskets but when I started the engine after bleeding the cooling system I still had lots of bubbles in rad.

I then suspected a crack in cylinder bore, got myself another engine that was running without issues, have fitted that engine and it is running like a watch it has done less than 150 miles and it has blown a small hole in rad and the rubber O rings on the heater pipes and I have loads of bubbles in the rad'

Am I missing something here it seems unlikely that the new engine had no issues before removal but has issues after fitting, pulling my hair out Help lol

        Now look up No1 injector sensor on the web, see what it does, see what is typical of the faults that a failing/failed No1 injector engenders, and find the replacement injector via a trade connection buying 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

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.

  • Subject : nissan terrano 2002 3.0L
    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 economical tow car and is overall immaculate but this is becoming increasingly frustrating as no obvious cause apart from fault on ecm has been found yet!?!

        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.

Hi, I'm Andrew Batty from you4wd.com.

As a 4wd enthusiast myself I have spent the last 12 months developing this website for us to use and contribute to building the world's first 4x4 video geo-referenced track database for the entire world.

If you get a moment, I hope you can jump on and have a look at the site and let us know your thoughts.

You can search for videos in any part of the world by using the map, upload videos using your desktop computer by manually entering in coordinates or by putting a placemark into the area.
I have also developed applications to use on your phones which automatically remember the location of where the video was taken and you simply take the video using the app, upload it on the go or save it until you get back to WIFI.

All videos on the users accounts get uploaded to their own YouTube account as normal so this is just an in-between step to help build the database of 4x4 georeferenced videos.

Now that the hard work in developing the site is complete and working, I'm now trying to spread the word around to get it noticed in the 4wd community.

I would be greatly appreciated if you could possibly mention the above comments on your forum to try and spread the word?

If you have any questions then please don't hesitate to ask and I hope this is ok with you?

Cheers

    Hi KZN,

    I think the ignition system is managed by air/vacuum and one of the air circuits shuts off the fuel supply when the ignition is switched off.

    If air is escaping from that circuit, then the fuel would not be shut off when you turn the ignition off and remove the key.

    I head that this is how a 2001 model is set up but I'm not sure about a 2006 model.

    Good luck!

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.

      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.......

    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.

    This is for a later model, but will give you a hint as to what Nissan usually does 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 the armrest/door pull which covers the hidden screw. Everything else should be logical. If it won't move, don't force it..find the fastener you missed....

I have just bought a 2002 Shogun 3.2 DiD LWB- its runs like a dream but when I was on the motorway I was following my husband doing somewhere between 70-80 mph and the speed was reading 50-60. This morning my son took it out with a sat nav for comparison and reckoned it was reading about 10mph slow

    What size tyres are on the vehicle? If they are larger(taller)than original, the rolling circumference is altered and the speedo reads under your true speed.
    Two complicated solutions:
    Go back to original size tyres;
    or
    find an electronic gizmo that alters the signal from the VSS (vehicle speed sensor to take into account the larger tyres.

    Simple solution: add 10mph to indicated speed and enjoy the fact that your odometer is clocking on the miles at a reduced rate.....

    Sounds like your crankshaft sensor has gone bad.
    You can get to it either from the top or underneith.
    It's located next to the drivetrain in the top and is hold by an allen screw.
    What it does is that when your car is cold it's functioning as usual but as soon as it gets warm it's resistance is altered and gives an indication to the ecu that your timing is of and it shuts down the engine to protect it from damage.
    If you look from the top you will see a connector in the far back end of the engine with 2 wires in it.
    thats the CS sensor. Unscrew the screw and pull it straight up. Look at it and see if you have the one with an flat base or the one with an metal pig on it so that you can get the right one on ebay for instance. You can also do a search on google by using the a number that is stamped on it. Bought mine for $40 on Ebay, replaced it and it's been running fine for an year now.
    While you are at it replace the camshaft sensor (top front next to the egr pipe on the left side of the engine) as it usually goes when the CS sensor goes.

    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.

    Hi, a faulty camshaft sensor can create many issues so replacing it is a start.
    Make sure your battery is in good condition as a weak battery can send mixed signals to the computer.
    Try disconnecting you battery and reconnecting it after a few minutes this can help sometimes.
    In regards to fuel pressure did you prime the hand pump after you replaced the fuel filter as your system is probably detecting air in the system, don't be afraid to pump the primer several times or more.
    Hope this helps.

Subject : Glow plug removal.
Hi,
Just like to share some advice on how to remove glow plugs from a Rexton 2.7.

When the time came to replace the glow plugs in my Rexton with 190256km, I found them extremely tight and a couple barely movable.
What I did was to crack the glow plugs about quarter to half a turn and then fill the glow plug wells with WD40, drive the car for at least a week keeping the wells topped up.
What this does is when the piston moves up and down it gradually draws in the WD40 in the threads of the glow plugs and softens the carbon within the threads.
Before removal next warm your engine and use your glow plug socket and turn the glow plugs back and forth millimetre x millimetre be patient as this can take some time, this again will allow the WD40 to penetrate the glow plug threads.
Don't apply to much force on the socket as over exertion can snap the plug.
Once all removed clean blow out the threads in the head, You can crank the engine this will also assist in blowing out any impurities.
Before installing the new plugs make sure you apply anti seize on the threads of the new plugs as this will seal the threads and assist in the removal plugs the next time the require replacement.

Did you run out of fuel at any time/ Did you recently replace the fuel filter? have you ever checked and cleaned the gauze filter under the banjo bolt at the fuel line entrance to the fuel pump? Have you recently checked and/or replaced the air filter? Did you drown the vehicle crossing a river? Has the vehicle overheated recently? Is the exhaust system free from obstructions, or has any part of the exhaust been crushed by off-roading?

    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 failures will result.

    Theoretically you should be able to extract the broken bits from each end of the mechanism; then you need to measure the overall length of the broken bits to find the length of new cable; buy the new cable and with a little lubrication and luck slip the new cable into the outer and voila: working mechanism.

    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.

      • Subject : Hot Hub/Disc
        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.

    Hi, your engine has a mechanical pump which needs to be bleed.
    First when was the last time you changed your diesel filter.
    What you need to do is crack your injector lines at the injectors prime your system by pumping the manual hand primer until you feel it getting firm then get someone to turn your engine over until you see fuel spurting from the cracked injector lines once this happens tighten the injector lines gradually until the engine fires and rune evenly.

    Looks like you need a new radiator core and/or a new bottom radiator to engine rubber hose. The water pump is producing suction and for some reason (usually one of the two above) there is no flow of water. Replace the bottom hose first as it is the cheapest solution.

    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.

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??????

  • 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.

    • Subject : nissan terrano/pathfinder/regulus R3M
      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 engine heats up, does the vibration lessen or go away? Any thick smoke 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.

                Have a good look at the position of the exhaust pipe where it passes close to the body after exit from the engine. if there are "rub" marks on the pipe and corresponding marks on the body, there could be a broken or worn engine mount, especially the one near the oil filter where oil leaking/splashing on it destroys the rubber. As the accelerator goes down, the engine twists until the exhaust hits the body. At higher or lower engine/road speeds, it doesn't.

    Did you buy the car new or second hand.
    The reason for the question is that the manual transmissions run ATF automatic gearbox oil in them but some people put gear oil in them which results in difficult to near impossible gear selection.

        When i originaly started this thread i wsed the word "carb" but it has no carb as it is fule ijection and has a turbo ther seem to be a collection og mumatic pipes connected to all sorts of sensors and valves on the engin. I am not familier with desel injection engina and the beek does not help as it deels with MAF and EMU sysetems. i hope this will help.

          So you are going to put some sort of hydrogen gas system on your diesel engine??? or is it really a system which is intended for a petrol engine which has all those sensors built in?? I presume the hydrogen system uses a piggy back computer??? I can't see how you can make this work on a diesel..that being said, there are systems using LP as additional fueling systems for diesels to increase horsepower and torque..but too much grenades the engine. Good luck, but I would be doing a lot more research before trying anything like what you propose on this diesel engine.....

            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 a parasite.....

                    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 evidence or practical expertise to support your comments I would be glad to hear them and indeed they may be of some help. Thanks

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!!!!

    Are you the proud owner of a nissan Navarra? Your vehicle is at most 2 years old..unless you used acid as coolant I can't imagine how you destroyed a heater core in 2 years. It sounds like it could still be under manufacturer's warranty, so the first thing i would do is go back to the selling dealer and inform him of the problem..and ask him to fix it at no cost.
    If that for some reason is impossible, try tracking down the connections where rubber hoses meet metal heater tubes, and check for tightness of clasmps/joints.

    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 it.

    Replacing fan clutch actually entails removing and replacing water pump..you can swap over the fan from the old pump..unless you can see cracks at the join of the blades and the hub..in which case a new fan should be bought as well..unless you want fan blades flying including into the radiator!

    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 out for the V belts etc.

    I am guessing its right hand drive like my model with same cicumstances. open the drivers door and close to the hinge there an opening that carries the door wires. is that rubber that belongs there intact? water runs down there and enters if the rubber is missing or loosened. observe the passenger side and rectify.

  • Subject : wet drivers side footwell after it has been raining and the car is stationary
    hi, I had the same problem but it was my rear drivers side floor getting wet so I checked the sunroof drains and tested all okay, I then tested the sunroof itself for leaks and was okay, I then checked the drivers door seal and it seemed to have a slight gap on the edge of the seal that fits to the body around the door on the inside edge so I ran a strip of clear silicone sealant around the top and down the sides of the door seal and as far down the edge and along the bottom that I could and it solved my problem the floor carpet as been bone dry ever since even in heavy downpours, Hope this helps.

    Has your vehicle got ABS? If yes, then it must have sensors on all four wheels. These sensors can be affected by small particles of crap interfering with the signals, especially magnetic/metallic crap between the sensor and the "teeth" on the wheel.

Subject : Tranmission troubles
Hello
I have a B2500 diesel 4x4 pickup
with a problem , lately I have felt that 4 wheel drive has not been right. So today I jacked the truck up on blocks and locked the Aisin hubs, engaged low range 4 wheel drive, started it up and had a good nose about underneath...
Well, the propshaft to the front diff is turning. The drive shafts to the front wheels don't turn unless I unlock the front hubs, but even when the shafts turn the wheels stay put. So hubs I think. The shafts seem to be merely drifting, and not driven. Next, I switch off and rotate the driver's side wheel – the drive shaft turns (?) It seems that the driver's side wheel IS locking onto the shaft.
Then I do the same with the other wheel but the shaft doesn't turn (???) Now I am puzzled. Start it up again and with handy piece of timber I find that I can stop the drive shaft turning with very very little effort, so they must be just drifting round with no drive as such. What can I deduce from this ? I think the passenger side hub is broken PLUS there is a problem in the front diff or the drive shafts.
Thoughts anyone? ... jeff...

    Once the engine gets up to temperature the cylinder will ignite properly so no smoke...any water consumption by the radiator? White smoke may mean water/antifreeze in the cylinder...

  • Subject : Very Slow De-misting
    When was the last time you changed the filter in the air supply? Do you use the aircon at the same time you use the heater for demisting the windows? By so doing you cool the incoming air, the moisture in which condenses on the cooling core, which leaves cool dry air to go through the heating core, which then delivers hot, dry air to your demisters. So, the two problems are : volume of air (replace your filter) and the moisture content (use your aircon).

    Next thing is to check carefully every inch of the exterior of the large air feed tubes running from the filter through to to engine via the inter cooler. Any breaks in this (and the break may be at the bottom out of normal view) means a difference between what the air sensor outputs and what the injectors are told to put into the engine (like a lean condition in a petrol engine)

    The only way to be sure you have the right amount of oil in the sump is to drain it and then pour the correct amount back into the engine..and you may as well do this with nice clean oil anyway. The sump empty should take at least 5.5 litres, plus another .5 litre if you replace the oil filter at the same time. Then find out where the oil levels come to on your stick, and mark the stick with a file and maintain the oil level topped up to that point..
    If your dipstick is too short, try to find another one...who knows what a previous owner has bodged up,,perhaps when some service station forecourt attendant left the dipstick lying in the engine compartment instead of putting it back in the tube after a check? The important points to a dipstick are: that it indicates the correct level of oil, and that the top properly seals against the dipstick tube so no oil can sprays out, or dirty air be drawn in, which means you can adapt one from another vehicle. try a wrecker..they may be able to help, but some dipsticks/tubes are longer than others....

After having owned a 1993 2.7 turbo wide body auto transmission terrano for 12 trouble free years of general motoring and towing both a 5 metre caravan and similar sized boat (not at same time) I sold the vehicle still performing like new and purchased a low kms 1996 diesel/turbo/intercooled/auto QD32 model for the extra power easpecially when towing. I have not been disappointed; it is a different beast but I still get a little nostalgic for my old Terrano. Enough talk; I had a faint rear diff whine in the QD32 and could hear chattering when cornering (it has a limited slip diff). I have drained and refilled the diff with LSD oil grade 85W 140 which is recommented on both CASTROL and NULON Oils home pages despite the local NISSAN dealer workshop advsing me to use 90 grade gear oil. The whine and Chatter has gone and I have towed the caravan aroundthe South Island trouble free. I would like to change the oil in the front diff. Can I use the same grade of oil as the rear diff and while I am at it can you confirm that the transfer box uses DEXRON 3? Thanks.

    Yes you can..LSD oil is necessary in LSD rear axles, and will work in front axles. REPCO sell 4 litre packs of a light blue LSD oil that I use in both diffs, using a $10 Warehouse 4 litre sprayer with the spray tip removed. Quick injection of the oil, no mess, no fuss. Always make sure you can undo the filler bung BEFORE taking out the drain bung...and check that the vents work while you are under there...
    Dexron3 confirmed. Do not use Dex6. I have also put a magnefine in line filter in the circuit, plus an extra auto trans cooler and can tow without worries of overheating..yours may already be fitted with an extra cooler??
    PS the Nissan dealer must have wanted to replace your diff for you in the near future...at your cost, of course.

Subject : Reving on cold start
Terrano II 2.4i petrol. Have a little problem when starting from cold, engine fires first time but then revs to about 1500rpm and gradually drops as it warms up until idle speed of about 750rpm, it just seems to rev more than it should do when cold, i suspect its a sensor some where thats telling the engine its too cold but not sure where, does anybody now the correct sequence/sensors for telling the engine what to do on cold start.

      The only way to be sure is with a spline count..the number of splines on the axle must match the number of slots in the new locking mechanism..and of course there are different spline counts on different models and years. Let's face it, if you can replace the factory locking mechanism by using Nissan parts and get another 15 years of life by lubricating them and exercising them properly..why spend extra on manual hubs (unless you are hard-core offroader..in which case why are you using a Terrano with it's limited aftermarket parts availability?)

    Has the time taken for the glow plug light to extinguish from cold start,changed? If so perhaps one or more glow plugs are burnt out. The glow plugs reach correct operating temperature, then cycle on and off until the water temperature reaches 50C then switch off completely. This could account for the engine dying straight away after the start, then running rough. Does the engine run smoothly after 6 miles or so of running, when all the cylinders are at the normal running temperature?

    Taking out the thermostat doesn't help with a modern vehicle as the water the cannot be forced by the pump the circulate through the passages in the head and block, and will "short circuit" by the easiest and shortest way causing steam pockets and worse problems.
    the most likely problem is your radiator. take it out, ahve a radiator shop take off the top and bottom tanks and rod the radiator through the tubes.
    Then put the radiator back in, put in the correct Nissan thermostat (not some cheap knock off from the corner garage) and fill everything with good anti freeze/anti boil and you should be good to go.The only other remotely possible cause for ;poor or no circulation is the water pump impeller being loose on it's shaft, or broken fins on the rotor, but that is very unlikely and can be checked with the engine cold but full of water, take off one of the heater hoses at the thermostat, start the engine and see if the water squirts out of the hole under pressure..you will need the thermostat in for that...

    Oops, one other thing, check that the fan is working properly..it is a heat sensitive and should engage immediately the engine is started, remain on for a short time until it reaches a certain temperature, then 'idle' still rotating a little until it gets hot enough to "kick in" (when climbing hills/towing) and the roar is quite distinctive. If there is no change in the sound of the fan when it engages, then you will need to replace the fan clutch, or replace it and the water pump as one unit.

      Hello Thomas, certified service didn't helped me with this problem. Very advanced mechanic recommended to replace clutch in differential gearbox. He tested car on a special axle tester and founded dissimilar front axle movement which depended on acceleration. If acceleration starts slowly, front axle is added, but in case of quick acceleration it is not added every time. I diagnose this before on icy roads on reverse movement to hill, but I didn't understood principles of Rexton gearbox. You could try it on wet surface and compare with different acceleration.

  • Subject : Heater cuts out Intermitently Navara
    Are we talking about the fan motor cutting out, or is it the actual heat coming out of the heater?
    If the fan motor is cutting out, does this happen at all fan speeds, or just one in particular?
    If all fan speeds are affected, then the fan motor itself may have worn brushes or a bad ground from the motor to the chassis.
    If1,2,3 speeds are affected, but 4 still works, then we are looking at a problem with the resistor on the fan housing, either corroded contacts or heating up and losing contact internally.
    If the level of heat is the problem, then the regulation of the heat has a problem which IIRC that is an all electronic unit which may require replacement, possibly second hand would be the most economical?

  • Subject : torsion bar
    I presume you are using a second hand bar, so this may already be "sagging".
    Logically, if the bar is still intact, then the fixings (splines) at either end must have slipped, or the tension initially set on the bar on installation was too low.
    Take the bar out again, check for any sign of spline damage from a "slip".
    If the drop occurred instantaneously, the splines must have slipped.

    If it happened over a period of time, then perhaps the tension needs to be increased, i.e. a couple of splines more tension initially, then slip it into the splines, then reset the adjuster to the correct ride height or even slightly more and see if it "sags" to the right height under load and time pressures.
    If it slowly sags again, try another couple of splines more tension etc etc.

    What state is the battery in? Do you have your foot on the brake and the ignition key on when you attempt to move the selector from park? The brake circuit activates a relay that allows the selector to move; no foot on brake with key"on" means the selector can't be moved.
    When you say there is a loud shrilling, is that immediately when you turn the ignition to "on" or is it when you turn the key further to try to start? Does the starter motor trying to engage the ring gear make this shrilling, and the engine refuses to turn over?
    I suspect a weak battery and/or dirty grounds on the earth straps to the engine and chassis.

        The cheapest,easiest part to replace is the battery. Perhaps the key fob activates when it is in your pocket, draining the battery very quickly. If YOU put a new battery in now, you will be able to check the results straight away. As I said, you knew you had put a new battery in before it went away. The company SAID they replaced the battery, but do you know for sure that the replacement battery was 100%?

I write for an automotive site and we recently did a video review of the Korando, I don't know if anyone would like a look - we did like a 'taster' test to see if anyone could tell the difference between the likes of the Ssangyong and a BMW. We did it with stuff like crisps and chocolate as well...don't really know why.

Anyway, just let me know if you want to see it and I will post the link!

Subject : Heater Blows Hot & Cold
My 1996 P Reg Nissan Mistral (Terrano II)steams up badly in cold weather and heater fails to de-mist the whole car.
Also, even on full heat, cold air is blown down into the passenger foot well whilst centre console floor blowers blow out warm air?
I swapped the heater control unit but still blows freezing air on passenger side.
Is this a heater matrix problem, please help. Thanks.

  • Subject : Heater Blows Hot & Cold
    When you use the air con at the same time as the heater on full, with the air controls set to demist, what effect does that have on the demisting process in your case?
    Theoretically, the incoming cold air is cooled, the moisture drops out and condenses on the freezing cold air con matrix, and the dry cold air then goes over the heater matrix, providing hot dry air which will demist the car properly.
    Can you confirm this happens?
    Also, has your vehicle got a pollen filter in the air conduit in behind the glove box? This can also trap leaves etc which can block the air supply? If no pollen filter, then leaves can go through and jam the various flaps and levers controlling the distribution of air.

      Thanks for your reply.
      I noticed yesterday that some of the foam packing between a joint on a component on the passenger side next to the fan had perished and dropped out, blowing cold air straight out.
      I sealed this with a bead of silicone sealant and this has increased the flow through the system.
      Just monitoring how it demists over next couple of days and I will report back

    Does your terrano have the lever for 2H,4H and 4L; or does it have the switch on the dash which includes "auto" setting?
    Low idle could be a couple of things; has this occurred suddenly and recently, or over time?
    have you changed the fuel filter and cleaned the gauze at the banjo bolt fitting at the entry to the injection pump?

        let me guess that this low idle only started after the pump was serviced, so go back to the service person and ask him to adjust the idle now the pump has settled down.
        as for the light on the dash, what positions are the lever and switch in when the light comes on?

        try it while you are coasting very slowly in neutral on the main gearbox; the slight motion may relieve any pressure on the gears and allow easier engagement. If the vehicle is new to you, you probably don't know how often the previous owner engaged 4wd low (possibly never) so the mechanism may be rusted solid. the transfer case may need new fluid etc etc. read this site and you may get some more clues.

            It was a pleasure to be of service. Here in NZ we don't have the severe winters which require salt on the roads which kills all things mechanical.
            Just find a small gravel or mud lane somewhere nearby and use that selector once a month at least and drive in 4wd to keep everything working as it should.
            Same with the air conditioning, at least once a month, summer or winter to keep the system functioning properly.

        So it was the auto locking hub spring which gave up the ghost? you should be able to get that part from Nissan. If you very rarely use 4wd, just replace the spring and you should be good to go for another 14 years. Otherwise you may have to shell out for manual locking hubs, they rarely break, but they can be expensive to buy. good luck.

    Take the rubber vacuum hose off the connection to the diaphragm of the brake booster, start the engine and place your finger over the end of the hose and see how much vacuum there is being created. The vacuum should be noticeable and increase as the revs rise.
    I presume that your brakes are becoming ineffective?
    It may not be the problem with the production of vacuum, but the retention of it in the booster...that could be leaking.
    are you losing brake fluid as well? Check for brake fluid in the end of the hose you take off the booster.
    Any brake fluid there indicates a problem in the booster.

Subject : Automatic Transmission Issue
hi. I 'm from Qatar. I have a Ssangyong Rexton 2003, Rx320 automatic- model 4x4 clocked 72K kilometers. Recently I have found an issue with the gear shift.

Starting from the 'P' to 'R' when the knob reaches R - the vehicle starts to vibrate. Then 'N' no issue. Then to the 'D' there is a small jerk, i think the gear system is engaging. When start moving with the 'D'rive mode, the vehicle starts moving but the gears are not loading as i believe from my experience. At some certain point, the vehicle comes to a stop on the D mode, and only the rpm increases. Then slowly the vehicle starts to move and suddenly a pull to go. It happen often but, when the vehicle comes to a stop on 'D' and rpm goes high, if the gear nob changes to N and again back to D makes the machine move. And once it got the momentum, it will move faster. Why this is happeing?? Any serious issues??

    You've left your research a bit late. if you know nothing about these vehicles, get a mechanic you trust to look over the vehicle. He may be able to spot obvious serious problems quickly, or otherwise advise problems that can be brought to the seller's attention to bargain down the price.
    Remember the old adage, "Buying second hand is buying someone else's problems"
    That being said most of these vehicles are reliable if they are maintained properly; try and ascertain the owner's attitude to maintenance as it is a good indicator as to how the vehicle has been treated. Look at the stickers re oil and filter changes, cleanliness under bonnet, oil on the dipstick, water in the reservoirs etc.
    If buying from a dealer believe nothing, and be wary of "as far as I know" answers...
    Good luck

    Don't just sit there listening to it, do something about it!
    Top suspect would be CV joint,look for a ripped boot; then auto hubs especially if you have not lubricated them, (and the noise goes away when the 4wd system is engaged i.e. when pressure goes on the components and locks them up),then brake discs/pads/sliding caliper pins etc.
    Time for you to get dirty and greasy....

      • Subject : clicking noise from front wheel
        Before you drain the oil out, MAKE SURE you unscrew the fill plug...they can be a beyatch to remove...
        Capacity is about 2.8 litres.
        I've used Repco LSD oil which comes in a 4 litre pack and had good results.
        Buy one of those $10 4 litre pressure sprayers from the warehouse, leave the spray head off, and there is no fuss pumping the heavy lubricant into the diff, plus you have some left over for top ups if necessary.Do the front diff at the same time, you can use lsd oil in a non lsd diff, but not the other way round.
        Unscrew and check that the vent on top of the diff isn't gunged up; it is supposed to allow air in and out. Helps stop leaks caused by a build up of pressure. It also allows water in if you dip into a river with a hot diff, which is why you should replace diff fluid every time you go seriously 4wd through rivers. Cheaper than replacing the diff....

          • Subject : clicking noise from front wheel
            There is nothing wrong with lubricating and restoring an auto hub. If you need to replace them, They are cheap and appear regularly on trademe. They certainly don't cost as much as the manual hubs. The secret is to use 4wd once a month, summer or winter, to keep the systems operational.Just like the airCon system, regular use throughout the year..
            Front diff has slightly less capacity, but have another 4 litre pack ready just in case...
            As previously stated, to check if the locking hubs still function properly, get under the vehicle with the 4wd selector in 2 H, engine off, twist the front drive shaft one way then the other. You will hear a click from both hubs engaging/disengaging if they are both working.
            While you are in the front hubs, check and lubricate the wheel bearings. Don't just throw more grease at them, take them apart, wash out and lubricate them.
            It looks complicated, but it is not rocket science..your local mechanic is not normally a rocket scientist, is he???

    Jack up the rear of the vehicle under the diff so that both rear wheels are off the ground.
    (Chock the front wheels and don't try this on sloping ground..flat surface only!)
    Ensure gear selector is in neutral, and handbrake is off.
    Go to one rear wheel. Spin it slowly in one direction.
    Look under the vehicle. If the wheel on the other side of the vehicle is turning in the same direction as the wheel you are spinning, you have LSD.
    If the other wheel is going in the opposite direction, you do not have LSD.
    Infallible test, use wisely.

    Or if you are very lucky, there will be a little sticky label still on the diff with "LSD"

    I agree, above test works every time.
    Also, if you have LSD, use the LSD specific lube in the diff, otherwise the lsd will be ruined, and /or you will not appreciate the banging and thumping from the diff before it gets ruined.

Hi.

Have a problem with Rexton 3.2 automatic. When starting it comes up with engine and 4WD both on. If you put in to drive it gives a jerk and stays in a "protective gear" which does not change as you accelerate.

If you put of and on, after a few times it comes right and works fine their after - gears changes up and down fine.

Problem also occurs sometimes when changing from drive to reverse or the other way.

Got electrician to check and ECU comes up with the following "P0836 Four Wheel Drive (4WD) Switch Circuit".

Any ideas on what could be wrong?

    If the alternator tests as putting out voltage and amperage, then that realy leaves only the +ve connection to the battery, or from the -ve from the battery to the earth on the vehicle.
    Take off the -ve earth leads and clean the connection to the battery and to the bodywork, and clean the earth leads from the body to the engine.
    Take off the +ve lead and clean up the battery terminal and the clamp.
    I can't follow what you mean when you "put the dash away" I presume you pulled out the dash and checked all the plugs clipped into it; did you use electronic connection cleaner, a spray which cleans crud off the contact surfaces?
    If yours is a 96 to 99 then those are renowned for dash problems, read previous postings on this site for the UK company which refurbishes them...

    Let's discuss the nature of the bubbles. Is it a stream of large bubbles that appears at the filler neck of the radiator? Is the engine hard to start after being left overnight or for longer periods? Is there a large cloud of steam coming out of the tailpipe on starting? Does the overflow reservoir get emptied by the bubbles pushing coolant out? Is the engine overheating?
    How much coolant are you losing after how many miles?
    Have you given the new coolant enough time (say a week of driving) to "settle down" and thrash all the air out of the new water..just keep topping it up with coolant mix until it stabilises.
    Have you checked the water pump for seal leaks, is the radiator leak free, have you replaced the thermostat and the radiator hoses? What caused you to have to redo the head gasket etc in the first place?

        ours is a 97 jap inport with an intercooled 3.2 turbo diesel engine. . There are heaps of them over here in nz . We have done a fair bit of off road work in ours over the last 3 years with all sorts of 4wd vechicles . The terrano is no toyota landcruiser or nissan patrol , but fairs well with the surfs and 4 runners . My brother has a toyota prado landcruiser and it would also be a more capable 4x4 than the terrano . Ground clearance is ok as we have just put heavy duty springs and shocks in the rear and has trasformed the handling and givin a slight lift . We could of gone for a 2 inch lift all round but the heavy duty springs lifted it enough for our needs . the front is ok for clearence and the transfercase and gearbox are well tucked under the body . Value for money over here the terrano would be nearly half the price as a surf or 4runner ,Would love the power of the v6 though ,

  • Subject : Re : wing mirrors
    If you can't find the fuse by looking at the schematic on the fuse box lid, then your best bet is to buy a cheap digital multimeter (or use a test lamp) and check by using the red lead on the top and bottom of the fuses as seen from outside the fuse boxes. If you look closely you will see a small, exposed piece of the fuse, top and bottom,able to be touched with the probe leads without withdrawing the plastic fuse. Put the black lead on the chassis somewhere, and check for 12 volts, top and bottom (with the ignition key turned to "on".)
    12 volts on one end but not the other means a dud fuse.....
    It's the only way to be certain as sometimes blown blade fuses can be hard to spot by visual inspection.

        I think you have cooked the motor. I would first check that there is no head gasket problem by checking the pressurisation of the radiator with a tester that pumps air in, and should hold at a certain pressure for a long time if there are no leaks.
        Then replace the thermostat if you have not already done so, and replace the temperature sensors which will also have gotten very hot, perhaps hot enough to destroy them.
        The temperature sensors tell the engine computer how hot the cooling system is: the fact that you are using much more fuel leads me to believe that the sensors are toast, and will need replacement.
        The computer thinks the engine is cold, and therefore tells the fuel injectors to stay open longer which uses more fuel.
        Good luck...

    Stalling is the engine stopping, or the revs dropping so low as to cause the vehicle to stop moving.
    Surging is an engine accelerating and dec elerating without input by the driver.
    Do you have a fly-by-wire throttle system which uses a potentiometer instead of a physical cable attachment of the accelerator pedal to the throttle body/injection pump to control the engine speed?
    If so it could well be that there is a break in the wire; as the truck bounces over rough ground the wire flexes and "makes and breaks" contact causing a drop then a rise in engine revs...
    Check trouble codes on your computer; physically check wires from potentiometer at pedal to computer; check potentiometer for worn spots as well.

    Hi:If your thermostat is facing in the right direction and there are no visible water leaks around the engine I would look at a possible heater core leak which is a bit harder to detect. If that checks out chances are you might have an air lock in your cooling system preventing proper water flow or a partially blocked radiator causing a similar effect. If after running the engine you notice a marked difference in temperature between the upper and lower radiator hoses, one or all of the above might apply. Try not to run an overheating engine for too long as they can only stand so much heat before breaking.
    Good luck

    If there was no overheating before the change of thermostat, and the overheating started after the new thermostat was put in, then something probably has happened to the new thermostat.
    New thermostats can be "duds" right off the shelf.
    Did you buy one direct from a Nissan dealer?
    The Nissan supplied ones are far larger in the opening than one bought from elsewhere.
    And the Nissan one cannot physically be fitted upside-down either.
    If the engine overheated badly forcing you to replace the thermostat, then you haven't fixed the original problem which caused the engine to overheat.
    So what happened to make you change the thermostat?????

        While the pump is being changed:

        1, Renew all the V belts and check, preferably replace,the bearing in the tensioner of the air conditioning belt.

        2. Replace the top and bottom radiator hoses, and if you can find them, the heater hoses.

        3. Also fill the cooling system with the best anti-freeze you can find.

        This will ensure no more problems in this area for another 50,000 km.

    If someone is reading this and they do not know how old their radiator and heater hoses are, I suggest spending the money and replacing them NOW before this happens to you.
    While you are at it, replace the thermostat with a genuine Nissan one. See many previous FAQ on this forum about that, too.
    PS It's a;so not ridiculous to take the radiator out and have it rodded through by a good radiator shop once every 15 years or so if you don't use good antifreeze at all times.

hi people!! i have a 2wd ssangyong kyron which I've had for about 2 years now. My glow plug warning light has been staying on recently but hasn't affected the drive nor the car in any way except a few jerks when i'm doing more than 60m/h which i have noticed a few days ago. Any ideas as to how to deal with it?? Can any one recommend a fault reader that actually works for ssangyong?

    a faulty glow plug. easy to find..glow plug is .5 to .9 ohm open circuit is over 40 ohms. buy a cd manual for 20 bucks and a 15 dollar multimeter to fix yourself. after market glow plugs from mercs are only 25 dollars part number HDS377. sometimes occurs if u changed your fuel brand ...keep using same brand of fuel for 2 tanks and computer will extinguish light itself.

The slide control for the blower only switches the blower on when it reaches position 4. It worked fine at all speeds but then suddenly stopped but for the top speed. Could this be a relay(s) problem or the switch?

    Neither; it is the resistor which controls the voltage reaching the motor.Only on 4 is there no resistor, the voltage is a full 12 volts, which is why it works.
    Replace the resistor; follow the wires leading away from the blower motor to a small block usually on the air housing; undo the screws, withdraw the unit, remove the electrical plug, replace the unit; bob's your uncle....

Subject : Terrano 2 TD2.7
I have a 95 Terrano 11 SWB. The interior light has been playing up. In the year which I've had the car, the light has gone on and off when any door is opened/closed. On Friday I gave the car a good clean which meant leaving the doors open for a couple of hours. The light then went off when the engine was started but started flashing at about 1 second intervals. With the engine off, the light eventually came back on with the doors either open or shut. I put the lamp in the off postion to avoid flattening the battery overnight. I tried the lamp in the door position again yesterday and now it's back to on/off with the doors. Is there a timer delay system (I've seen replacement timers on eBay) and if so could this be the source of the problem? Also where is the delay unit located in the car?

          Not at all. I'm guesing it's the ECU behind the driver's kick panel as I've seen the same unit on ebay described as an ECU. It took me less than 5 mins to find it on the other side. The replacement arrived today, it's fitted and there's now a delay on the interior lamp! It works on the driver's dooor only; the passenger and tailgate switch it on and off immediately. I expect that how it's supposed to work. Thanks for you help, Cheers

  • Subject : Re : Mr
    When you say "squeals"; does the squeal occur only when you get right at the end of the steering wheel travel.. because if the v belt is loose it will squeal when the steering cannot force the steering linkage any further.
    If you have just replaced the v belt with a new one, re tension it.
    If it is an old belt,Replace it, and if you are going to do that replace all three V belts as it is just about as much work for three as one. and believe me, if the air con belt starts squealing you will have to remove the other two anyway to replace it.

    The steering stops as described above "grunt" when the suspension moves up and down when the wheel is at hard lock e.g. going over bumps or kerbs; the stops as described used to have a plastic coating; with age this wears off causing metal to metal groans and grunts, a lick of grease does wonders.

    Another thought: is there sufficient fluid in the reservoir? Is it a nice bright clear colour? It used to be that power steering fluid was just Auto trans fluid, and that used to be nice bright pink. Nowadays it could be any colour, but if it is not nice and clean, then it is time to replace it, flushing out the old and putting in the new, whatever it's colour.
    Test it on a piece of tissue paper or a paper towel, you'll soon see if it is dirty.
    This can also cause problems in the power steering.
