BASHEER KHAN, South Africa

Nissan Almera

While driving my engine stalled and the orange management light came on. I started the engine again and it started but the management light is still on. At times when the start light is off and power is normal, at times while driving all of a sudden the light comes on and the speed is not normal, like less power. Took it to a workshop and they hooked up their computer which gave a printout with the codes PO325 KNOCK SEN CIRCUIT-BI and PO335CKPSEN CIRCUIT. When the management light is off the engine ticks like a clock, you cannot hear anything like timimg chain stretched or other noises. I am sure if it is the timing chain then the engine will be noisy. I have changed oil, oil filter and good quality plugs. Please can someone advise as I like my car, got it for almost 6 years and had no problems. Please help me someone, I know there must be someone who has had a similar problem and had it solved. Thanks.

Nissan Note 2010

My Nissan Note’s radio needs a code and I have followed the handbook with no success at all. I waited an hour and then put the code in, but no result yet and the screen just reads code in. I wonder how can I get the serial number without taking the radio out?

Answers

Dear Reza, assuming you have the correct radio code from Nissan, follow this procedure. Example:- If your radio code were 5078 switch on the radio and wait for the message to supply code. Press the radio station button labelled "1" five times, do not press the button "2" as it starts at 0, press the button "3" seven times and then the button labelled "4" eight times. Obviously you must follow this style of entry for whatever radio code you have. Now after checking that the screen shows the correct 4 digits, press and hold the fast forward button labelled >> for about five seconds. The radio should beep and come to life ready for you to retune. The owner manual’s advice to use the TA button is incorrect. Jeremy Goldbloom from Hertfordshire

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Answers

George, there has got to be some trouble code in the vehicle's computer, so get the codes read with a scanner. It sounds like "limp home mode" where the transmission gets locked by the computer in one gear, (usually third) and allows you to limp home, thereby reducing damage to the engine or transmission. Without reading the codes, your only choice is to throw parts at it, and as you have seen, this doesn't usually work. (and gets expensive really quickly) If you read through this site a common thing appears to be bad earth contacts between the earth straps to the body from the battery, and from the body to the engine and to the transmission. Clean these contacts with sandpaper and contact cleaner after unbolting them, coat them with anti seize grease, and bolt them tightly back into position. Each time you switch off the vehicle and switch it back on you are "rebooting" the computer. Bad earth contacts means incorrect signals going from the sensor on the engine and trans to the computer. This is also them cheapest possible "fix", taking only time and effort on your part. In relation to your mechanic..what did he "repair"? If he knows nothing and has no scanner, it's a waste of your money, especially without any warranty of his work. John Smith from New Zealand

Answer this question

Chris Clement, Swansea

Nissan Pathfinder

For about the last 4 to 5 months we have been experiencing a power loss and increase of fuel usage. The power loss is significant when accelerating as it has gone flat. The fuel consumption has gone up as the mpg has gone down from 35 to 32 around around town and on motorways we used to get up to 45mpg and now only achieve 38. I've googled this problem and a lot of sites said it was faulty fuel injectors. I have just had these inspected and they were OK. It has been into the local Nissan garage for a diagnostics and they can't find any problem, nor any suggestions. To investigate further apparently it gets really expensive. Hope someone has some ideas to point us in the right direction?

Answers

My two cents;- Clean your MAF sensor. When your Mass Air Flow Sensor gets dirty it can't accurately measure air temperature and density and the ECU may run your engine rich. Check your knock sensors - an old malfunctioning knock sensor can send an erroneous signal to the ECU causing it to continuously retard the timing which leads to poor fuel economy. Replace your spark plugs- poor spark due to worn or fouled spark plugs can rob your engine of both power and fuel efficiency. Clean out the IACV- the Idle Air Control Valve sits above your throttle body. Check your vacuum hoses for leaks or obstructions, they are hidden monsters! Catalytic Converter- most newer cars have two catalytic converts, one is for low exhaust temperatures, the second is for normal operating temperature, have them inspected. Get a REAL injector cleaning - in tank fuel injector cleaners can improve fuel economy, but the general consensus (members and a few mechanics) is that the Injector Cleaning Kits work much better. A bit costly, join in a buddy to share. George from United Arab Emirates

Answers

Ian, the only thing I can think of that it appears that you have not replaced, and which made all the difference in the 1997 to 2000 Terranos/Pathfinders especially in the US, where it was termed "the death wobble" was replacing the radius rod bushings..in the 4 steel arms( links) that locate the rear axle and that have a bush at each end. Worn bushes here also cause steering problems as under acceleration the rear axle moves one way, and on deceleration it moves the other..could be what causes the pull to the left..but only if it is on deceleration or acceleration, not steady speed. Have you had a 4 wheel alignment done by an expert, not a noddy at the local tyre shop..unless you really trust that noddy. An expert is a guy who makes his living from doing all the tricky alignment that requires expert work..and to whom dealers take their best customer cars as he is way more skilled than their own people. The expert I use has in the past, for example, dropped the front left suspension strut out of the turret and used a dremel tool to elongate slots so that the proper adjustment can be made (an adjustment not allowed for by the manufacturer, but still necessary in real life. That sort of expert. He will also be able to tell if at some stage the front has had a crunch....... John Smith from New Zealand

Do you have a picture of these and do you mean the ends of the propshaft? ian from Lancashire

Crawl under your vehicle and look at what holds the axle to the body. The propshaft goes down the centre of the vehicle and spins. The steel shafts with a bush at each end locate the rear axle to the body, and they run forward from the axle housing on both side of the differential to the body and attach underneath the rear seat. There is a longer shaft below a shorter shaft on each side.http://beergarage.com/PathBushTrack.aspxThis is a real man's way of dealing with the problem. You could probably just buy new bars complete with new bushings as it takes a 20 ton pressure to push the old bushes out unless you burn them and cut the metal sleeves out.....which could affect the temper of the steel.http://www.justanswer.com/nissan/2y2du-2000-pathfinder-swaying-uneven-roads-speeds.html John Smith from New Zealand

My guess is that your new tires are not mounted and or balanced properly, or that one tire or rim is defective and out of round. I have the same vehicle and I experienced the exact same thing last year. Turned out that all four tires were out of balance. 40$ later problem solved and no vibrating steering wheel at higher speeds. In so far as Pathy death wobble issue, I am not aware of it affecting X trails. Also given that you have changed a number of suspension parts maybe you need a proper 4 wheel alignment. Make sure that you find a place that can and will reset your steering angle sensor as part of the procedure. I hope you havent just been throwing parts at the vibration with hopes of it going away. Good news though is that you now have new rubber and brakes and steering components. Kind of surprised you haven't changed the front control arms, but maybe that is what you mean by new steering arms. However these would include your lower ball joint so maybe you havent changed those given the expense. More I think about it, your Exy should be driving like almost new, given the work you have had done. I am 99% sure one of your front tires is out of balance and possibly both. Go back to whomever sold you the tires and have them check the wheel balance. Mike Quinlan from Canada

Hi I didn't do the front control arms as the bushes etc on them are all new I have also checked the bushes at the rear like you describe all look new no perishes etc. all components on This are new now and it is still doing it also I have had the u joints checked on prop shaft and thy are new and the propshaft centre bearing is also. So looks like Someone else changed propshaft before me. I have had all tyres checked and balance done and they are spot on but this was doing this before I had new tyres put on. So I am completely stuck now what it could be?? I also have started get this low grumble noise either when I rev car in neutral or if I am slowing down. It is not always there's and a slight rattle on cold not always noticeable. Wondered if it was linked to the vibration?? Any help be great as I love the car and it looks like a new car but the wobble is driving me mad ian from Lancashire

Maybe a front wheel bearing? But what you describe is classic with an improperly balanced tire. I have changed the front control arms on mine, and it tightens up steering and ride but I cannot see how vibration at speed would be linked to them. If you feel it in the steering wheel I say its happening at one of your two front wheels. I think its more likely that the tech who did it and insists they are balanced is incompetent, rather than anything else. I would bring it somewhere else that specializes in tires and alignments and have them rechecked. Maybe even to the point of having the tires removed from your rims and remounted. There are dots on the rims which indicate a specific way to mount the tires on them. If the dots are not aligned properly the tire cannot be properly balanced. Also if the roads in England are anything like those in Canada these days, its very possible to damage a rim. Maybe one of yours has suffered damage. If so use the one with your spare tire, and keep the damaged one for your spare. Let me know how it turns out, but do have another place and mechanic examine your car and test drive it. Re rattle could be timing belt tensioner in need of servicing, or maybe a motor mount going bad. Mike Quinlan from Canada

Hi I have had all wheels checked and front to back etc all okay, had tracking checked etc still all okay, yet this problem is still there. It does it in 2wd or auto and even if coasting in neutral and clutch down. What I have noticed is if I let go of the steering wheel it pulls to the left but only from 60 mph plus. The tracking is spot on, I was there when it was checked and took it to two different places to confirm. I am just short now of changing suspension wish bones and wheel bearings to rule out but don't want to spend just yet invade simple fix. The prop shaft has been checked and all joints look fine etc no play. Cv joints all look good. I'm stuck.

Nissan Almera Tino 2004

Having changed my Nissan Almera Tino`s battery last June it has lost charge a number of times and recently just after a few hours driving. I had a new battery and the next day it was totally drained flat. What is causing this? (2.2diesel)

Answers

On my Tino it was the radio that was at fault, it took 1 amp even when switched off. I found this by removing the fuses one by one with a multimeter connected to measure the battery current. Note that there are two fuse boxes, one by the driver's right knee and on under the bonnet. New radio unit fixed the problem. Hope this helps. Tom from Derbyshire

Nissan Note

Whilst the rev counter is reading fine the engine sounds as if the revs are running far too slow. For example if in 4th or 5th gear it sounds like you are only in 2nd gear yet the rev counter reads fine. Anyone else have this?

Go to someone who has a decent OBD2 scanner that will tell you in words what is wrong. There may be other "ghost" codes that can then be reset. you then drive the vehicle and the codes that show after the reset are the real problems.... John Smith from New Zealand

My Terrano 3.0 petrol is leaking oil from the exhaust manifold. What could be causing that?

They commonly leak oil from the oil filter mount which cracks..this can cause electrical interference on the starter motor which is beneath it. And they leak from the rocker cover..the gasket needs changing tony clearwater from New Zealand

I have a problem with my driver`s door power window on my 1995 Terrano II SLX. I can only close it, but not open it. I CAN however open it if I give the door a hard knock, since the VERY complex power window relay is inside the door. Is there anyone here who can help me find this relay? I tried ebay, but can`t find any.PLEASE!!!!!

Answers

If you go to the following URL it shows you how to fix the problem with a skyline's relay which I found is the same as my Mistral's driver`s door window - only took a minor soldering job which saved the hassle and cost of having to find and purchase another relay. By the way the relay for the passenger`s window is under the centre consul. http://www.sau.com.au/forums/topic/143965-r33-how-to-fix-the-auto-power-window-relay/ John from New Zealand

Answers

You can adjust headlights up and down using an Allen key on the headlight mounting, look for a white bit of plastic that an Allen key would fit into. Really this is not a job you should do yourself as you could have your headlights aligned in the wrong place and dazzle oncoming drivers Lewis James from Greater Manchester
