Subject : Engine cutting out at low revs when warm
My Challenger has just started the nasty habit of cutting out at an intersection when stopped. The revs are low & the engine is warm. It is fine when I start up in the morning but after about 15 mins driving she nods off in the queue...any ideas anyone??

Subject : kyron viscous fan noise
I am aware of all comments and ctricisms of the whirring noise from the fan. Mine is 2007 which I have only owned for 5 months but I am aware that the frequency of the fan coming in has increased with the slight increase in ambient temperature. I understand this but I foresee that it will become unbearable [to me ]in midsummer. Can the viscous fan be worn and should I expect improvement if replaced with new?

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 ??

    • Subject : Nissan Patrol ZD 30
      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.

John Been a while as computer was down and have finally got sorted . Away at xmas and on the way home found that our terrano when you chop down out of overdrive into 3rd and give her the jandal the motor will pull well untill 3500 rpm then it like the governers cut in and wont pull any more revs or accelerate at all . Lots of black smoke when this happens . Now I dont drive at hogh revs all the time so this is not a problem 99 % of the time . No issues at lower rev range under 3500rpm
Possibly engine sensor ? No engine check light on so would a code show up on a scanner ?

    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?

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

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

      • Subject : Nissan Terrano upgrade to 6 speed G/box
        See my first answer. The Terrano is a four wheel drive which weighs more than the average vehicle. It takes energy to move mass..the heavier vehicle can never be as economical as a lighter one unless you change various 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.

    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

    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

    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?
- UK - Sun 16th November 2014 08:25pm (GMT)
  • Subject : Looking at 1994 Terrano II / Mistral
    The slight leaking of oil is from the compressed air from the turbo going through those pipes to the intake valves of the engine. The air entering the turbo charger comes from two sources; out of the air filter, and partway along the hose leading to the turbo intake is a small hoses that leads to the positive crankcase ventilation valve on the valve cover. This small hose sucks oil misted air from the engine keeping a mild negative pressure on the engine and helps to keep the oil from leaking out from the valve cover, sump and any other place with a gasket or seal. In the old days it used to go straight out into a road draft tube, an open pipe pointed at the road surface below the engine..before we all got PC and sucked that waste back into the engine to be burnt up in the cylinders and poked out the 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.

        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...

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

        When you took off the old discs, did you clean very thoroughly the mating surface between the new disc and the hub. If not, rust on the seating here can make the disc wobble.
        Do you have ABS? If so, take the front wheels off and clean thoroughly around the sensor as any metallic particles including a build up of rust can cause 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.

    Remove left front wheel after jacking up left side and resting vehicle on jack stands and go in through the rubber curtain that covers the hole in the inner mudguard..like you do when you replace the oil filter.
    if you don't usually even replace the oil filter, bite the bullet and take the vehicle to an exhaust place where they can fix f-ups like broken studs, screwed nuts, replace gaskets etc on site.
    Doing that enables you to drive in and drive out......

Subject : Nissan Terrano 3 litre
I have a 04 Nissan Terrano 3L manual, Turbo diesel. When in normal drive the vehicle runs well. When I put it into 4WD high and worse still into 4WD low the vehicle has a very heavy drag on the steering. It seems to be fighting against the steering when I try to turn the wheel and there is a nasty "clunk" which shakes the whole back axle. I have checked the oil and have put in the correct limited slip-diff oil but it is no better. When I drained the diff.oil I took the cover off the diff. and there was no sign of any damage inside. The only other thing I can say there are 245x17 tyres all round instead of the normal 235 tyres. But surely this wouldn`t make a difference as they are all the same size. Any ideas please?
Wrexham, N. Wales, UK - Thu 09th October 2014 03:07pm (GMT)
  • 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....

hello, hoping somebody can help please. recently the orange 4wd warning light has been coming on on my dashboard.it randomly switches the light on when im driving. the revs also increase, i had a friend test it and it isn't actually in full 4wd ,took it for a test on a local paddock in both 2 and 4wd and it definitely isn't in 4wd when the light is on ,hence why I think it is just a warning light.if I turn off the ignition (99% of the time) the light turns off the revs drop and its fine ...until next time (which is often) .so does anybody have any clue what this is. we have removed the switch to see if it was that, not that and have reconnected it. could it just need more fluid, or a transmission service maybe? or something else. any help much appreciated. the make and model is petrol 1997 terrano regulus auto. im thinking big $$$$$ its scaring me. thank you

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

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..

  • Subject : nissan Terrano 2.7 litre R20 diesel 1997
    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......

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

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.

Subject : nissan terrano cutting out
Hi have a 2000 reg 2.7 diesel nissan terrano automatic. It is cutting out sometimes when I select drive or reverse or it can cut out when the revs drop to idling speed and then I go to accelerate off. The EM light is coming on the only fault code I am getting is fuel injector no1 fault? Is it just the injector sensor at fault or cud it be a number of faults? Any help appreciated thanks.

  • Subject : nissan terrano cutting out
    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.

    Hi, It seems that thermostat valve is stucked and allowing direct flow of water from radiator to engine before getting a specific temperature. Surely heat indicator will show low temperatue as compared to earlier. Thermostat valve price is app 12 to 15 US dollars. It is located just after the out water pipe from radiator.

  • 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....

    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 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.

        I checked the PCB on the back of the speedo & could find any broken tracks or bad solder joints, although it did take me back 45 years to the couple of months I spent on PCB inspection during my apprenticeship.

        I'll ask again, does anyone know if the circuit & wiring diagrams are available & what signal goes to the dash?

    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

Subject : nissan terrano 2002 3.0L
Hi I wondered if anyone can help me? My terrano's engine management light keeps coming on, with loss of power, smoking unburnt fuel out the back! Been in garage now on and off since end of november! When been put on diagnostics by my garage and my local nissans error code P7-F timing FB has come up a pump timing control system fault.my mechanic has replaced the solanoid on the diesal pump and had the ecu on it sent off with no fault found! Nissan have also checked all wiring to pump and from ECM and checked lives/earths for pump all ok! they have said fault is either with pump or ecm.ecm has now been sent away for testing and surely if main part of pump was faulty it would not function full stop not this constant intermittent problem? Any ideas or input welcome, many thanks.
weymouth, dorset, UK - Thu 16th January 2014 09:28pm (GMT)
  • 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?

    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.......

Hi John, I bought this few months back and hear loud whine on top gear. Only comes when pressed accelerator pedal. Recently changed oils for Differential, Transfer and Auto trans. But still no difference. When googled read on another forum saying that Nissan has advised to fill gear box 5.1L to fix this issue... Can you please advise what next step should be.... Thanks.

    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????

      - 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.

    "but I have that same thing on my 1998 Nissan Pathfinder SE (AT). Speeds between 55mph and 60mph yield the loudest noise, which trails off at 75mph. My mechanic pointed me to a torque converter issue, which isn't going to get fixed on my 8-year old Path with 120K miles...


    I found this reference to increasing gearbox fluid level..note this is a MANUAL gearbox behind the 3 litre v6.
    You have the auto box...

    My advice is to try to pin down exactly where the noise is coming from...use a mate to listen for it while you concentrate on driving....

    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.

    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;
    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.

          Seems right to me, especially if the OP has already discovered one function of that switch changes the behaviour of the gearbox...so must the other two positions..and one has to be "normal" and the other locks out 1st gear..starts in 2 for snow and ice...

    Don't switch on the engine; this will reduce the sound so there will be nothing to worry about.
    Seriously..we can't tell what is making the noise until you describe what you are doing when it makes the noise; are you accelerating, slowing down, is it hot, is it cold, does it change after a couple of kms driving etc.

  • Subject : rexton wont start without easy start
    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.

    when you say you open it manually, are you physically turning the mirror with your hands until it is in the extended position?
    Or are you using the switch to extend it from the parked position?
    If you are using the switch, then there is no problem with the switch or the mirror motor..just with the 'automatic" provision of 12 volts on initial turn of the key...

Subject : Glow plug removal.
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.

    What year Terrano? Did anything else 'go wrong' before this problem occurred? 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.

  • Subject : Hot Hub/Disc
    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.

      NZ - Thu 25th July 2013 10:59am (GMT)

      • 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.

    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).

Hi - I ve just bought a 2004 Double cab Warrior with a full length Mountain Top ( Gas struts ) on the back. I want to be able to carry ladders/steps etc so need either a roll bar that fits with the Mountain top in place, or a Navara style roof rack where the back bar protrudes behind the rear of the cab. Does anyone know where I can buy either please ?

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.

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

Hi - I have a 1996 import Nissan R3M Terrano. Also known as a Regulus or Pathfinder (pr50) Chassis.

It's a 2.7diesel auto, needs a new clutch plate. Can anyone point me in the direction of part numbers for this model. Also anyone familiar with this can tell us if this is straightforward to replace or a major operation. Thanks

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

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

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

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

  • Subject : 1996 Nissan transmission
    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....

Hi, I have a nissan mistral/terrano 1997 facelift ,intercooler turbo. On 1500 rev truck is vibrating /shivering badly,even if its not in the drive, once passed 1500 rev truck drives smooth.specially while you drive on window closed it makes your ear feels closed, noticed when it drives mainly 50km speed . please let me know if someone got a answer for this....cheers
WELLINGTON, nz, nz - Wed 12th June 2013 11:00pm (GMT)
    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.
    NZ - Thu 13th June 2013 08:12am (GMT)

      Hi, No thick smoke on cold start, glow plug go out as usual, every thing works fine, vibration remains after engine heatup,i know what you mean by one window down, its just the body vibration, just wondering about the engine mounts???
      nz - Thu 13th June 2013 09:55am (GMT)

        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.

          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

    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.

    Temperature sensor is located under the intake manifold.
    Grab a torch and shine under the manifold located towards the front of the engine.
    You will require to remove the front pressed metal engine top cover support and this will allow better access to the sensor.

      You can get your ssangyong dealer to check each glow plug.The light indicates at least 1 is faulty, but not all of them. Your car won't start if all are faulty. Also, you can try MTQ in Sydney.They are diesel pros,i use them in Adelaide with good results. If you want a CD workshop manual go to www.AutoEPC4you.com. IT will help as it lists all fault codes and diagnosis remedys. It is the Factory manual

    I have a 2.7 lt Rexton and I had similar issues, the engine light would come on and the temperature would show overheating and sometimes when this happen my triptronic transmission would lock into 2nd gear.
    Also over a period of weeks the car became difficult to start when at operating temperature and then over a period of two weeks it refused to start when warm.
    After replacing the temeperature sensor located under the intake manifold, and the thermostate the problem still exsisted but then i replaced the camshaft sensor and all the above issues were a thing of the past and the car has never missed a beat.

  • Subject : sunroof rattling
    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.

    It all depends on your priorities, and how long you will own the vehicle. Cheap and nasty,but if you are going to drive it into the ground anyway, well....If you want a quick, messy, permanent fix for the rattle, and don't care about the sunroof, you could drill a big enough hole through the sunshade to put in the nozzle of an aerosol can of expanding foam..and fill the whole cavity..guaranteed there will be no rattles!

  • 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.
    Any symptoms I haven't covered that are a problem with your vehicle?

    Christchurch - Mon 29th April 2013 11:55am (GMT)

  • Subject : over heating when towing
    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! Don't ask me how I know this....

  • Subject : no power
    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.

Subject : Tranmission troubles
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.

Subject : Replacing Common Rail Sensor D270T
Car starts when cold, but will not start when warm. Turning glo plug on and off a few times seems to help start when warm. Diagnostic tool says issue with common rail sensor. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, was it a sensor issue?

    Best advice.Buy a copy of the Workshop manual from www.AutoEPC4you.com. Its on cd. Has a full list of fault code numbers for diagnosis.There is a Fuel pressure sensor in the middle of the fuel rail. May be the problem.However i suggest get your ssangyong dealer to check the Cam Position Sensor, as more likely the problem.

    Try replacing the cam shaft sensor,as i had a simular problem and i found that when the engine was cold it started well but when the engine was at operating temperature and parked the engine would crank but not fire. After replacing the sensor the car not missed a beat.

Subject : Front end knock
I have a 2005 RX270, great car. For some time I've heard a knock on the front driver side wheel / suspension area especially when on or near full lock. More reliably does it reversing than going forward. My local RAC has gone right through it and confirms the noise is there but can't find it, nor can they find anything wrong. Has anybody else come across this ?????

    OK, 1 what colour smoke, 2 for how long, 3 did this start overnight from one day to the next or 4 did the smoke gradually become worse? My chief suspect would be at least one stuffed glow plug. Has the length of time the glow plug light stays on at cold start up changed to a longer or shorter eriod of time?
    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).

    It really doesn't matter, put in the longest-lasting, best-priced one that is concentrate, not premixed. The most important thing is to thoroughly flush out all the old mixture plus the crap and rust before putting new into the system. Once you decide which brand you will use, stick with it and use it for top ups as well.

    It is almost certainly a problem with the injection of fuel into the engine. When was the last time you replaced your fuel filter? what condition was it in when you examined it? full of black gunge/ if so, did you follow the fuel line round to the injector pump, undo the banjo fitting and check/clean the gauze filter under it?

    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)

  • Subject : Oil deep stick
    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....

Subject : Front diff oil
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??

      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?)

    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...

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.

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.

    My crystal ball is cracked, and I cannot hear the noise at this distance. Could you tell me if the noise increases in volume or frequency in relation to the revs of the engine? Does it "ratchet" when in gear (is it an auto) with the clutch out or the clutch in (if manual)? Does the noise change when you turn on the headlights and the fan on high (alternator) or the air conditioning? Have you checked the wear or tightness of the fan belts? Is the engine fan hitting something? Is something hitting the fan? Is the ratcheting coming from the front of the engine or the back? Please take the time to open the bonnet and listen carefully.

    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.

    Simple things first..I know you believe there is a new battery in the fob, but just for laughs buy a new one and put it in and see if it works well again. Batteries can go bad very quickly,or it could have been old stock that sat on the shelf a long time before being put into your nice new case.

      • Subject : key fob/alarm
        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%?
        Just do it.....then you can eliminate that niggle

Subject : daewoo musso 2.9td
I had a ssangyong musso for years with no problems, I decided to get a daewoo musso last year and recently it wouldn't start without getting jumped then the alternator packed in with the belt also snapping. I bought a new alternator and belt set it up properly and the car was fine until I took it for an mot and on the way home the dashboard lit up like a christmas tree and it wouldn't kick up the gears (it's an automatic). Now it won't start without being jumped again but the only thing different was the mot tester put the handbrake on and we don't use the handbrake. Has anyone got any ideas why it won't start and why the lights are on the dash. (the lights are airbag, alternator, ebc, abs) Is there anyone that can help or give me some suggestions to try?

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.

Leeds, Yorkshire, UK - Sun 02nd December 2012 01:19am (GMT)
  • 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

        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.

        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.

    i left that to my local alternator overhauler. $280 for new bearings and a NZ made diode pack..and that was 5 years ago with no subsequent problems.
    otherwise a trip to the local library usually comes up with manuals..or check the internet for the you tube tutorials.
    Ps unless you haven't been changing the engine oil and filter regularly, there should be no need to overhaul the vacuum pump..

  • Subject : Vacuum pump
    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??

  • Subject : NEW CAR
    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.

      • 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....

          excellent thanks john,is the front diff as same as rear diff when chaging oil? also like i said in last message one of my auto hubs was locked up ive manage to free it and is unlocked....can i still use it? give it a good clean an lube or ditch it? as i been pricing up some manual ones an they are not cheap any ideas??thanks

          • 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"

    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.

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".

    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?

Subject : Help with Terrano model mayhem
Hi, hope you can help, as am looking at a 1998 Nissan Terrano R3M-R (petrol engine/manual) and have looked everywhere else I could think of for specs and reviews to no avail.

Is it identical to the Pathfinder just with a different name for a different market and what does the R3M-R designation relate to: the engine or the trim?

    Just had a google search and a lot of american reviews came up .wickapedia has bit of history on the model . This site has heaps of info if you spend the time searching . We have a diesel r3mr . has been a great 4x4 . Think the petrol engines are good but a bit hard on fuel but so is any other petrol 4x4 .good luck

      thanks Steve, i will keep on googling. what year is your r3mr and how would you compare its off-road performance for example versus a toyota 4runner/surf for example how is the ground clearance compared to other 4wds?

        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 ,

1995 mistral....Small leak from the sector shaft seal. I have been told that in order to rectify this I need to have the whole box recond at $650 plus.I cannot see why I cannot just replace the seal? I have seen this done on other makes on utube and feel capable of carring out the repair.Anybody out there done this? The vehivle has only travelled 138,000 KMs so would not expect wear in the shaft itself. Cheers Tom

  • 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...

  • Subject : Re : stalling
    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.

  • Subject : Re : nissan terrano II
    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

  • Subject : Re : nissan terrano II
    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.

Subject : 1998 Honda CRV ES Timing Belt & Water Pump
I have just bought a 1998 Honda CRV ES with 74,000 on the clock. My question is that at 44,000 the timing belt and water pump were changed which was 7 years ago. Do I need to change the timing belt again quickly as I am worried that I would do damage to the car if I never changed it now for instance even though it has only done 30,000 miles since. I do understand that the water pump needs to be changed at the same time. I am pleased with my purchase but would just like a bit of advice please.

    you need to bleed the load sensing brake valve its above the rear axle. can be badly rusted might need to put new bleed nipples on it. also break calipers could be on the wrong side if they have been changed.

Subject : Nissan Mistral 4X4
Hi,I have a 1994 nissan mistral.Just lately while I was driving it started to overheat and when I checked one of the hoses was leaking.I waited for a while for it to kool down topped up with water and drove slowly to get to my home keeping an eye on the temp gauge, but suddenly the engine stopped and would start.The water seemed to be dryed up and the temp gauge needle was about in the middle.Had to tow it to my place and the next morning I tried starting the car after feeling the radiator with water to check if the engine is dead or not, and it starts but as soon as I leave my foot off the accelerator it turns off.
Can anyone please help me what i have to do or replace to put my car back on the road??cheers

    I would say you have cooked the motor. It may be cheaper in the long run to replace the motor with a second hand one from a wrecker. See many previous posts on this forum for FAQs re overheating etc.
    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.

    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.

    It most probably is an air lock providing that the valve side of the thermostat is pointing towards the bottom of the engine. Also when filling up the radiator leave the fastening of the top hose,at the water neck, till last until you see a steady flow of coolant coming out of it and the heater temperature control should be at max heat during the operation to avoid air pockets in the heater circuit.

    PS is the problem one where the speedo doesn't work/rev counter doesn't work/ slamming hand on top of dash sometimes makes it work?

    If so. it is known problem, can sometimes be fixed, otherwise another dash and crossed fingers is the only solution

    Keeping the a/c condenser fins clear for good air flow and a working condenser fan would go a long way in helping the system.Also isolating the heater core,inside the car,by fitting water taps on the two hoses servicing the heater core will get rid of a big heat source in the cabin compartment. You could easily turn them back on in the cold.

    Make sure that the refrigerant in the system is the right one, and that it has has the correct amount of liquid plus lubricant.
    I like the idea of isolating the heater matrix with cut off tap valves.
    Perhaps tint the windows of the vehicle to reflect as much heat as possible?

  • Subject : Re : timing chain
    There is no timing chain or timing belt.
    There is a cog drive from the crankshaft to the camshaft and the injector pump. Then there are push rods up to the overhead rockers which push the valves.
    That is part of the reason these engines last forever if basic maintenance is kept up, e.g. fresh oil and oil filters, refreshed coolant and thermostats.
    There is nothing nasty like belts or timing chains to snap, fray, wear out or adjust.

    Re the handles, a wrecker is the place to look.

  • Subject : Re : 4 wheel drive
    Look at and read the previous posts. This FAQ occurs each year and is answered each year. For some reason the answer doesn't vary each year. By reading this discussion forum from end to end you will gain a huge amount of knowledge about your Nissan which will stand you in good stead for the future and may save you a large expense or two.
    Before you get into trouble, please go to your local library and read a book or two about 4WDriving.
    Joining a club is also a good idea, and finding a friend or two who also have a 4wd makes sense, because the minimum number of vehicles in a 4wd party should be 2, and at any time 3 is preferred.
    When you get stuck really well, you need two vehicles of the same size to pull you out of mud because the suction effect of mud on the underside of the vehicle triples it's perceived weight, and only one tow vehicle will not budge you.
    Spending decent money on rated tow points properly installed front and rear, KERR (kinetic energy recovery rope), rated shackles, etc etc are wise investments before you touch that 4wd lever.....
    But all these things are discussed in the books.
    Read it and you will be less likely to weep.

          I presume you have a lever in the cab to select 4WD? And that you have selected either high or low 4WD? and that it does not appear to be working? Therefore there are a few things to check.
          The first would be the linkage under the vehicle to make sure that the lever is actually moving the linkage fully allowing the selection of the gear ratio..some people never use the linkage and it gets so much crud and rust that it seizes up. While you are under there, grab hold of the front driveshaft and twist it by hand, with the ratio selector in 2wd. If the auto hubs are working, you should be able to hear them click in and out when you twist the driveshaft one way then the other. Then put the selector in 4wd hign and try to twist the shaft. If your selector lever is not working you will be able to twist the shaft easily, if your gear selector is working, it will be difficult.
          The next thing is to disassemble the auto locking hubs (which I suspect will be the culprits) and lubricate them or replace them either with another set of auto-locking hubs or manual lockers.
          The autos work fine as long as you exercise them properly about once per month all year round. Unlike Landrovers etc Nissans do not bathe in oil, and these hubs will seize up through lack of exercise as well.
          I hope this helps

Hi I bought a 2.7 Diesel Terrano last night after covering about 120 miles it suddenly stopped on the motorway I filled it with diesel before I left it has had a new battery fitted and I noticed a lead from the top of the injector pump is disconnected but as the vehicle started and stopped on the key ifigured that it was a heater element or some kind of sensor. The mechanic who recovered the vehicle said it was the stop slonoid and it had probably fallen apart and was blocking fuel in the pump but he couldnt explain why the car stopped on the key with the wire broken.
The car has not been used for almost a year or so the lady I bought it from said. Please help as this is a real pain in the arse I got home at 4am this morning and have spent a lot of money so I need a speedy cheap fix.

  • Subject : Re : Terrano 2.7
    Let's tackle this logically; you have been told by a mechanic that the wire controlling the stop solenoid on the fuel pump has been disconnected.
    Ergo, the first thing to do is take the stop solenoid out and see if it is in one piece.
    If it has disintegrated and is stopping the injector pump from working (which is what "Stop" solenoids do when they activate, you have found the problem.
    Then you can but a new or second hand stop solenoid, and reconnect it, so that YOU control when the engine stops.
    This is particularly beneficial when accelerating out in front of large lorries at intersections.

      I have had the rocker box top off and the chain seems very slack, the chain seems to hit the wear guide easily which would explain the rattly noise. can't seem to see the chain tensioner, is it in view from just taking the rocker top off? It may explain why the chain is so slack as there is no tension being taken up. the chain and top sprocket look in good order. Can you just change the tensioner only without stripping every thing down.

          It seems to make sense that the noise goes away after 2-3 seconds as the oil pressure builds and the tensioner takes up the slack can it be as simple as using the wrong oil filter as the below thread sugests, i have just changed the oil and filter (not from main dealer)
          Thanks Tim

          (Nissan made a special oil filter for the Ka24(e) motor that has a special valve which keeps oil pressure to the tensioner so there is no noise at start up. As far as i know there is no other company that makes one besides nissan. Go buy a case of oil filters from nissan for your hardbody and the noise will go away. Some dealer parts really are "just better")

    Subject : Re : accelerator problem
    the TPS Throttle Position Sensor isnot the accelerator pedal, it'd the rheostat that measures the position of the pedal i.e. how far into the floor you have the pedal.
    You would have to check by testing the resistance of the sensor as you move the pedal...to see if the resistance is an even curve from 0 to full open.
    The clue is that after you turn the engine off then on again, the symptom goes away.
    By turning the ignition off you are "rebooting" the computer.
    When the fault is sensed agai, the computer returns the engine to idle..which is a damn sight better than it going to full throttle, which in a fly by wire system is another alternative.....
    There is a problem, it is electrical.

When we originally bought the car secondand the fuel pump when immediately within a few mile. Under warranty the pump was replaced with a recon, since then it has been replaced twice again with recons as they were leaking on the seal. The pump is not leaking now apparently (had it checked again) and the smell remains, we have changed the cab filter and had the engine cleaned down where it was leaking, has anyone else had a similar problem or can comment on what maybe causing the fumes?

Hello everyone, my maverick 97 manual, 2.7 diesel is lugging at low RPM, i'd say from 1300 to 1700. in any gear. but if i make a full pedal then its not a much notable. at and after 2000 RPM all works OK, i'd not say, lack of power out of 125 hp it has. i read almost all the page and searched by diff words but cant find very similar situation to it. please reply if any thoughts. fuel filters both main and bango i understand but have not done it yet. i suspect it can be MAF or anything else at very low loads. yes at very low loads. please keep in mind. this lugging happens when i want to surf not run. thank you in advance

      • Subject : Re : Re : Re : lugging at low RPM 1500
        I would also think that you might have a fuel flow problem and the engine only gets the required fuel to run properly under heavy acceleration. That banjo bolt is under the power steering pump and if that mesh filter is blocked-up it would be causing you grief. I would also look at the breather in the fuel tank cap which assists the fuel flow towards the engine.
        Just a couple of thoughts and i hope they help you.
        Good luck

          my car was runing in Holland all before and I suppose with cleanness of diesel should not be problems there(cause my frined owned it there) but here in Georgia we still have sulfur ppm quite high, far than any Euro 2,4,5. so i wonder if i put some diesel cleaner with 10 gal of diesel, can i damage anything? won't it be worst? any experience with that, good or bad?

            I haven't tried diesel cleaners in the past but i always flushed my fuel lines and tanks everytime i had diesel flow problems. Chances are the strainer in that banjo bolt needs attention since that is the end of the low pressure fuel circuit before it enters the injection pump. Conversely your fuel filter might be clogging up as well affecting your fuel flow towards the pump.

              thank you Bill,i'm all reading and checking. already confused a lot as I found out this fuel pump is governed by ECU, it is COVEC-F by ZEXEL_Bosch, in this cases crankshaft sensor can also be as writen. I'll plug tomorrow car chip in OBD port and will find if any signals.although no CHECK light yet, it was a few days ago and went out in about 10 minutes. with our technicians i'm so afraid dont want to go to the repair shop and i'm waiting to find time to reach that banjo filter and change main fuel filter too.will continue investigating so lets see... if i keep that car, i hope this knoledge will be useful in the future, i'm so pesimistic, but i thought it was not ECU controlled!!! are before 97 models also ECU controlled? anyone knows about it. in the worst case in the future cant i put just a mechanic fuel pump without any ECU.still nobody cares for any emissions in my country, at least thats positive.thanks to everyone.will update on progress.

      Hi Levan: I've had both the crankshaft and maf sensor out for cleaning and they react positively to the maintenance but as you said any electronic hiccup will light up the engine check light. As for the engine being able to be reverted back to conventional injection I'm not sure wether it would be an economically viable option since it would require modifying too many systems and you would probably loose out on some performance in the process. In my personal experience however I've found that the electronic management for my '97 terrano has been more reliable than I ever expected it to be, without a single problem in 5 years of hard driving,only requiring some maf sensor cleaning but the engine will let you know when it needs it.

    Try cleaning the earthing points on the chassis and the engine block so the electricity can flow through without a resistance from dirt, oil or rust.
    This is a known problem with this model.
    A quick check would be to string a 10 amp wire between a clean point on the engine block and an earth point on the chassis, see if this makes a difference???

    How long did you have the incorrect grade of fluid in the transfer box? What symptoms did it display towards "the end" when you obviously noticed something wrong, and took it to the dealer?
    Have you consulted for a second opinion?
    Go to a gearbox reconditioner, don't say what the dealer told you, let the man analyse the problem for himself.. Listen to what he says, then make up your own mind as to what does and does not need reconditioning/replacement.
    Depending the age of your vehicle it may be cheaper to buy a second hand transfer box in good condition and bolt it in, rather than overhaul a "ruined" one???
    It's your money and your vehicle, get a second opinion. Dealerships are sometimes called "stealerships" in the US of A; and for good reason!

                The objective of off-roading is to get you, the vehicle, and it's passengers from point A to Point B safely.
                Your Terrano is not designed to smash rocks.
                Rocks are to be avoided.
                Remember, as a child, playing "Snakes and Ladders"?
                Regard the rocks as snakes, and you'll get the idea behind this concept.
                If you insist you want to disable the NATS, suggest it may take an expert, perhaps at a Nissan dealer, as the usual efforts are directed at making it work.

Subject : r50 lift
Looking at replacing rear springs on r50 terrano as old ones are stuffed . Have come across full set of front and rear springs but they are a 2 inch lift set . Would these be ok with the origional rear shocks and front struts ?
Any thoughts ??

    Steve, your old springs are stuffed..but are the 2 inch lift set replacements brand new or slightly worn?
    If slightly worn they may droop back to original specs fairly quickly???
    If it doesn't cost too much, it may be worth a crack...since you have to replace the springs anyway????

    Just an idea but sometimes people change diff centers for another one with a different ratio only on the rear, and leave the front one original causing both diffs to clash when in all wheel drive.
    Good luck.

    I wonder if you are turning rather tight with the front hubs locked in as that will put a lot of strain on the drive train and give that feeling of brakes being on.If so then try it with the steering straight ahead.cheers.

    What type of surface were you on when you engaged four wheel drive?
    Was it a high grip surface such as a dry tarmac road, or a slippery surface like it should always be when engaging 4wd?
    and as above, did you have all the wheels pointing in a straight line?
    You are locking the front and rear diffs together, and can "wind up" the geartrain and drivetrain to the point of breaking if the surface is not slippery...

Subject : 94 mistral gas consumption
Hey there. I recently bought a 94 nissan mistral 2.7l turbo diesel. The gas consumption seems to be alot lower then I had anticipated. My last tank I got 496km - 67.89 litres of disel. Roughly working out to 17 mpg. Is that right? The man that sold it said he got 30mpg on the thing ...

Im not very mechanical but I did have a buddy look the engine over and neither I or him could find any obvious leaks or anything.

Anyways any imput and or ideas as to what the problem could be would be appreciated.

Thanks, Tim.

    Hello: my car is a '97 Terrano same engine as yours and also intercooled. I happen to get roughly the same mileage out of mine but i have noticed it uses a lot more fuel on highway driving than it does around the city. I wish it had a taller final drive ratio to help it bring the cruising engine speed down a bit when keeping up with traffic. But overall it is a terrific little engine that will go forever and will get you everywhere reliably without asking you for much in return, just the most basic maintenance.

      Going to do an oil change and an air filter I suppose.

        Locked in hubs will definitely impact your fuel mileage since you are spinning two axles, a diff and a drive shaft for no good reason at all.
        Air filters can make a heap of difference, but also check the integrity of all air ducting to and from the filter.
        Your cruising speed is what most of us do for maximum economy.

          PS Pump those tyres up to at least 34 psi cold all round if highway cruising; drop them down for serious off road.
          Don't forget, tyres lose one pound per square inch pressure per month whether you drive on them or let them sit doing nothing.

    does the picture on the warning light look like a square funnel with small dots coming out of it?? If so, it means you need to clear the exhaust system by driving the car for at least 20 minutes at a constant 55mph. If this is the light that is on at the moment it will go off once the system has cleaned itself. It normally comes on if you don't do much mileage ie: short trips at low speed.

Subject : Satnav / SD Card Questions
Hi all

I changed my 2006 Dodge Caliber SXT for a 2010 CRV last weekend and although I’m very impressed so far, I’ve got a few questions which I can’t make out from the vehicle manual and the previous owner didn’t have the SatNav / stereo manual. Any help would be most gratefully appreciated!

I’ve paired my Blackberry with the stereo and imported my contacts so I can use the phone from the car. Can I link contacts’ addresses in my address book to the Satnav in a similar way, instead of having to look at my phone for the address and typing it into the Satnav?

How do you play music on an SD card? I’ve inserted the card behind the head unit but I can’t see how the stereo looks for the SD card. I’ve gone through the ‘Source’ options but it just doesn’t seem to be doing anything.

Many thanks in advance!

Nissan Terrano 2.7 SE (5 door - 1997)
Last night, whilst driving home, when I started pushing in the clutch, I heard a squeaking noise and then the clutch started feeling 'looser'. It has no give now and is only taking right at the end of the foot-well. When I finally got home, the clutch is only just taking - right at the end and is struggling to allow me to go into first gear. Is this a problem with the clutch master cylinder or do you think the whole clutch is knackered?

  • Subject : Re : Nissan Terrano Clutch
    What level is the fluid in the clutch master cylinder?
    Crawl under and look at the rubber boot on the clutch slave cylinder, is it leaking fluid?
    May need a refurbishment or a new slave cylinder?
    If you are going to keep the vehicle for years more, have the cylinder bored oversize and a seamless stainless steel sleeve inserted, no more corrosion damage.
    Have someone depress the clutch while you look at the lever movement..does it move as far as it should?
    Try bleeding the slave cylinder as you would a brake cylinder.
    If that is all done with no improvement, then you have a clutch problem.

  • Subject : Re : Nissan Terrano Clutch
    "I think the biggest reason it is so hard to bleed the clutch system is because the bleeder valve is not higher than the incoming fluid line. Gravity bleeding will work to clear the clutch line of air, but there will be a bubble left in the slave cylinder. What I found that works is to simply unbolt the slave cylinder and hold it such in a way that the bleeder valve is at the highest point, relative to the incoming line. Holding it this way, the air bubble in the cylinder will naturally float up and out by gravity, e.g. the slave will fill up from the bottom and push the air out the top. Since gravity is doing all the work, this is a one man job. When the air bubbles stop, close the bleeder and attach the slave to the bell housing."

      Thanks for the advice fellas - I checked fluid levels and set about to bleed the lines and slave cylinder - didn't take long, but a bit of a fidget under the chassis.

        Hate to "burst your bubble" but ask yourself "how did that air get in those closed lines?"
        The answer usually is "through leaking rubber seals on the slave cylinder, caused by the rusting slave cylinder wall rubbing away at the seals and wearing a hole big enough for air to get in"
        Sooner, rather than later, you'll have to overhaul or replace the slave cylinder..just replacing the rubber seals will not work, they will just be torn apart by the rust spots once again.

  • Subject : Re : accelerator problem
    the TPS Throttle Position Sensor isnot the accelerator pedal, it'd the rheostat that measures the position of the pedal i.e. how far into the floor you have the pedal.
    You would have to check by testing the resistance of the sensor as you move the pedal...to see if the resistance is an even curve from 0 to full open.
    The clue is that after you turn the engine off then on again, the symptom goes away.
    By turning the ignition off you are "rebooting" the computer.
    When the fault is sensed agai, the computer returns the engine to idle..which is a damn sight better than it going to full throttle, which in a fly by wire system is another alternative.....
    There is a problem, it is electrical.

    The fluid level for the auto is found at the end of the transmission dipstick, which is near the firewall.
    Google how to read the levels on the stick, and what procedure you must undertake before you can assess the level accurately.

Hi, have finally joined the 4x4 crowd and bought a Nissan Mistral 1995 2.7diesel for towing the horsebox. Can someone please explain in plain english what the overdrive is for and when to use it please? The man I bought it from said to leave it on permenantly but doesnt seem to go as well with it on and I've no idea what it actually does?? Also how do you remove the back row of seats? And where is the fuse box please - the right hand side of my dashboard doesnt light up and I/m not sure if its the fuse or the bulb (clock not on either?)
Exeter, Devon, UK - Tue 04th October 2011 07:46am (GMT)
  • Subject : Re : Nissan Mistral Overdrive
    A simple explanation of the overdrive unit: It is gears 4 and 5 if you had a manual transmission.

    At with a warmed up engine in D at 60kmh click the button to take the O/D off.
    The light on the dash will say (O/D off).
    You are now in third gear, slow down and you will go to 2 and then 1.
    Stop and then restart and it will change from 1 to 2 to 3.
    Now at about 60 kmh flick the overdrive in.
    You will feel hear a change in the engine note as the lockup on the torque converter goes to 4th gear where it is almost but not quite locked up i.e. it is slipping and generating heat in the auto trans; then you will hear the engine note drop, the rev counter will go down by 2 to 3 hundred revs, and you will be in 5th (locked up) top gear.
    If you are going to tow a horsebox around, please get an auxilliary transmission cooler fitted in front of the radiator and feed the auto trans output fluid through that and back through the bottom cooler already in the radiator.
    Heat is the enemy of auto transmissions.

    Ergo, leave the O/D in when driving normally, but flick the O/D OUT when towing; remember it slips trying to get to 5th gear lockup.
    Slipping creates heat; heat destroys transmissions.

    80kmh in 3rd gear equates to around 3000 revs and that engine will cope with that all day and night. Sounds noisy but it's not a problem.

    P.S. I do hope that your horsebox has it's own braking system as well???

    Your dashboard lights on one side..that probably means the bulbs are blown on the other side...nothing to do with fuses.You will need to have the dash removed to get to the bulbs to replace them. replace them all, you can even put LEDs in which theoretically will never break down and give much better illumination.

    Have a look at where your seats meet the floor, usually nuts and bolts hold them in, and undoing them releases the seats so you can take them out.

    Have a read of this site, take your time, and learn a bit about the vehicle before you get into trouble.

        If they are still original, replace them ASAP as they will be as useful as a 20 year old piece of string at controlling "the bounce" in your suspension.

    Have a look at the sites dealing specifically with the Pathfinder in the USA.
    Frankly, I don't like your chances of making the stock engine work very well without all that gear.
    The ECU needs sensor info to operate; take away the sensors, vacuum tubes, EGR etc and the ECU won't know whether to laugh or cry.
    Nor will you.
    If you have to ask how to do it, don't do it????

    The Terrano does not have a very powerful engine; but it can usually get to where it needs to go without breaking down or getting stuck.

    It will not be worthwhile putting any other engine in the Terrano; sell the Terrano and buy a Nissan Patrol.

    Be prepared for more expenses in ordinary driving on the road.

Subject : ECU ROM Idle RPM Adjustment
Hello All,
While this is not a question directly related to a 4 x 4 forum, it is about a power unit used in that environment. I would appreciate any help or references from the community.

I have fitted a 1998 Nissan 2.8 Litre, 6 cylinder Intercooled Turbo Diesel engine to a Jaguar saloon. The unit is in and operating OK. (V. tight fit with all the heat exchangers and pre-lube system)
The problem is that the idle speed is 850 RPM, which is too fast for the autobox ('creep') I need to reduce the speed to about 500 / 550 RPM. However, because this is an electronically controlled unit, there is no simple mechanical method of achieving this, that I know of.
It seems that access to and editing the ECU ROM is the only way that the required speed can be achieved.
I have looked at various tuning software packages, like say ConZult, but this allows temporary editing only. (The standard Nissan Consult system can not even do this) If the PC/laptop running the software is left connected, then it would do the business, but that isn't practical. Most of the tuning sites I have visited relate to extracting greater performance from the relevant power units and in any event they don't seem to cover this particular engine. As far as I can see the only option is to modify the ECU by adding a 'Daughter Board' (PCB) to the relevant microcontroller and plug in a replacement 'chip' and then reprogram the 'chip' using a full blown tuning software suite.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to the most economical / practical way of getting the result I need.

Kind Regards to All,

John T.

    Is your accelerator a "fly by wire" unit or just a linkage from the pedal to the pump?

        My car a Nissan terranoII also has an electronic accelerator and there is an adjustment screw for the idle speed at the base of the pedal, If yours doesn't have it there's also an idle-up function by the e.c.u. which makes the engine idle @ about 750-800 rpm every time the A/C is functioning and brings it back down as the A/C system cycles. Hopefully you might only have a wiring issue.
        I hope this helps you. Cheers.

          Unfortunately the mechanical part of the accelerator system does not have any adjustment.
          I have wired the engine heat-up switch. This increases the idle RPM to warm the engine more quickly and 'drops out' as soon as the ECU 'sees' that the engine temperature sensor has reached the required value. As it happens, the Heat-up switch simply provides a +12 Volt input to the ECU. Would that there was a similar facility for a range of idle speeds.

          • Subject : Re : Re : Re : Re : Re : ECU ROM Idle RPM Adjustment
            John; In my case the glow plugs are wired through a relay box which receives an input from the e.c.u./ engine coolant temperature sensor to determine the preheating time according to the coolant temperature and this is also influenced by outside temperature. Also the coolant temperature sensor has a bearing on my idle speed as the engine fast idles first thing in a cold morning only to drop back down soon after. I get the impression you might have to play around with your wiring a little bit and try different connections around your coolant temperature sensor since the e.c.u. probably " thinks "that your engine is cold all of the time and for this reason it is not responding to your trying to bring the idle down by lap top tuning.

              Hi Bill.
              Your comments relating to the glow plugs are noted. However the system as installed is exactly as it was in the Patrol from which the engine was removed. The "Heat-Up Switch' is a feature of that particular model. It is intended to idle the engine at areond 1150 RPM to bring the engine up to working heat as soon as possible, while not in motion. When the required temperature is reached, the ECU reverts the idle speed to 'normal' and the illuminated H-U S is deactivated. Of course if the vehicle is accelerated beyond the H-U threshold RPM, the system ignores the input, unless the vehicle is stationary again, before the H-U temperature is reached.

                HI john;
                If you used the nissan engine wiring harness then incompatibility between systems is ruled out. As you said before every car is different and some e.c.u. have an idle "learning" procedure to follow on starting up after resetting and again some would need to be carried out with the aid of a laptop and others would be achieved only by the e.c.u. alone just following simple steps. Other than that perhaps a "consult" diagnostic will give you the answer to the idle speed problem. Hopefully you will sort it out quickly and please let us know if you have some videos of your conversion it would be good to see it.

                  Hi Again Bill.
                  Sorry for the delay in responding, I had Internet connection problems. A 'correction' to one of my earlier statements concerning the throttle mechanism - there is, as you indicated, an adjuster for the end position, but this 'bottoms out' at 850 RPM.
                  It certainly looks like I will have to go the ConZult / laptop route. I have one other possibility in mind. It is the possible addition of a "Piggy-Back" module, like 'Tunit' or 'Unichip' or something along those lines. I don't yet know if those people would be willing to do a 'one-off' module to allow the adjustments I need. I have made contact with a number of suppliers and am awaiting replies.
                  I don't have a video of the conversion, but I do have some still photos. How can they be attached to the response?

    Jane, could you take the time to read through the site.
    Yours is a frequently asked question.
    Have a look at fuel filter blockages, algae growth, etc. etc. posts down this list.
    The lack of power could be lack of fuel, or lack of boost from the turbo.
    Note also discussions on speed or lack thereof when towing heavy loads...and a caravan is a heavy load with lots of wind resistance, because it is shaped like a brick outhouse.
    Before you do too muck towing, have an extra transmission cooler plumbed in... se other discussions in this site.
    Try not to use overdrive when towing.It's easier on the gearbox, it doesn't heat the trans fluid as much and stops the gearbox "hunting" for the next higher gear every time you ease up even slightly on the accelerator.

        Depending how steep the hill is, you tow in 2 or even 1, if you are changing manually, or trying to stop the caravan rolling downhill too fast on the down slope. This saves your brakes a lot of wear and tear, and means they won't overheat if you really need to stop quickly in an emergency.
        Go to your local library and read books on caravan towing, use of automatic transmissions etc before you get into trouble, please?

  • Subject : Re : nissian mistral
    Jane: Kick down is a quick change to a lower gear and for that reason you should notice your engine revs rise every time this happens. I would leave the gear stick out of overdrive,when towing, to avoid excessive hunting from the transmission and consequent overheating of the trans fluid. Don't forget that kicking down a gear lowers your speed for as long as the lower gear is in and a hilly road might not let you get to the top at a high speed since these cars are not all that great in the power stakes. Finally if you are still not happy with your transmission's performance a trans service and fluid flush should bring it up to scratch and this should be done on a regular basis because trans fluid will degrade overtime and cause all sorts of performance problems.
    Good luck.

Subject : 2003 CR-V SE Sport Satnav
Anyone know what could be the problem with my Satnav / Audio system. It works fine from cold, but when the ignition is turned off and then back on again within a 5 mins or so (e.g. when stopping for petrol) the drop-down display fails to work. The radio / CD player continues to play but the only control available is the volume / power switch. The display is blank and all other controls don't work. If the ignition is off for longer then the system boots up as it should and everything works fine.

Subject : terrano II speedo not working
Im guessing this is a common problem with these vehicles, the digital dash that incorporates the speedo, odometer & temperature works sometimes but can also be pixelated & broken.
Is there a fix for this?

    You are so right, there is a fix.
    Keep reading this site, and you will find it, and the www. reference in the UK for the fix.

rev counter not working, also gearbox kicks down when you dont want it to, i.e under load towing, drops a gear revs like mad but dont accelerate ease of throttle and she changes up again. I have replaced all filters and trans fluid, also only getting 15mpg towing 1600kg is this about right???

  • Subject : Re : 95 mistral 2.7tdi
    In short, yes.
    Kick down occurs when the load and the position of the accelerator pedal are computed, and the auto is told "this man is putting the boot in, I must try harder"
    and so it changes down a gear or two.
    But there is only so much power (torque) available; and with a diesel that doesn't mean at high revs, so you don't go any faster.
    Letting up on the accelerator tells the computer "the bastard has finally realised he is not driving a V8" and it slips into a higher gear to make use of the torque of the diesel engine, rather than flogging a revving horse.

    All sarcasm aside, have you had the vehicle long? Are you used to driving a diesel? Have you ever failed to get there at slightly less speed?
    What percentage of the time are you towing 1600kg?
    What did you expect towing-wise???

Subject : ABS cutting in on braking
I'm new to all this so please be patient with me! I have a Nissan Teranno II which has started to apply the ABS system every time you use the brakes. There are no warning lights on dash and the car has been in the garage but can find no fault - told to drive it as is!(maybe 'cos I'm a woman and know no difference) It is very annoying as even when braking gently the peddle vibrates and you get a horrible clunking noise from the car. PS The brake pads were changed 3 weeks ago during a routine service.

      Hi Steve,
      Brakes pads were changed 3 weeks ago, the problems with ABS only started this weekend. The ABS warning light came on tonight!
