Nissan X-Trail

Hi, I am hoping someone might be able to offer a solution to our Nissan X-Trail problem. We have a 2003 SE which is only doing roughly 22mpg around town and 30mpg out of the motorways/A roads. We have had Nissan run a diagnostic but they say it`s perfectly fine and that the engine is working well, while at the same time saying it should be doing in the 30s around town and 40s on the open road. Has anyone got any suggestions for what we could change/get checked out in order to improve the fuel consumption? Really lovely car apart from this problem which is currently costing a fortune! Thanks for your help

Oil anti freeze coolant and water topped up. Red temperature light came on whilst driving a dastance today then oil light came on. Whats wrong ive got a long drive home in a couple of days and im panicking about driving!

Answers

Hi Jan Dunn! before starting the car, Check the levels again of the oil, anti freeze coolant and water. If the water level has dropped, then you have a problem with the cooling system as there may be a leakage somewhere. Also if the oil level has dropped, and there is no leakage from the engine it could be the piston rings are worn out. Reuben from Tanzania

Nissan Almera Tino 2005

When slowing down to overtake a cyclist I was travelling at about 25mph in my Nissan Almera Tino and when I tried to speed back up I got no response from the throttle. The rev counter dropped to 0, malfunction light came on briefly but when I turned the engine off and back on everything was fine, no light stayed on and the engine response was fine. What should I do? (SE)

Nissan Qashqai

Has anyone else had problems with Power Steering failure on their Qashqai, but then been told by Nissan that it is not covered under Nissan's recall of affected vehicles where they have replaced the EPS control unit? This apparently is for vehicles built from 08/06/2010 to 08/12/2011 that are at risk. Recall reference R/2011/159 I am being told that a new EPS unit is about £700.

Hi Susan, I posted this in July 2015. I paid because we needed the vehicle back on the road. I plan to pursue Nissan for a refund, but have been away so haven't started yet. Our vehicle was first registered 01/02/2012 and so I think that it falls within the recall window, but the local Nissan dealers say not. I had a local non-nissan garage carry out the work, as nissan dealers said it wasn't covered. Garage charged £854 incl VAT. Part was £705 incl VAT. Robert. Robert Brown from Staffordshire

Nissan Almera 2000

Hi, I`m having problems with my Nissan Almera, it`s jerking, pulsating and loss of power. Diagnostics is showing as crankshaft, this has been changed with a genuine part but still diagnostics is showing as crankshaft. I have been told that it`s highly likely to be the throttle wiring or the sensor, as when the wiring was moved around the diagnostic light went off for a few hours. I would appreciate some sound advice. Also if I ordered the throttle sensor is the wiring called connectors and also do these connectors have 2 plugs, one in the sensor and the other in the Ecu?

Answers

Sounds like same problem as me. If yours is the same model as mine there’s a common fault of the chain stretching but shows up on diagnostics as crankshaft sensor; so maybe get that checked out. Good luck Paul from England

Nissan Almera Tino

Hi, I have a Nissan Almera Tino 2001 reg. I seem to have a leak. I keep finding my driver`s side footwell and both the floor storage spaces at the back full of water. I`ve had the carpet up and had the scuttle grill off to check for blockages but I couldn't see any. I`ve also checked the sunroof and the drains seem clear, could you help me please?

Answers

Hi James, Did you find the source of your Almera Tino driver's side footwell leak? My Tino has a similar problem. Have checked obvious places where water might enter without success. Had windscreen removed and refitted and the fitter thought that was the likely source. But after more rain not even Cumbrian rain(!) the carpet is soaked again, just having got it dry! Sunroof drains are clear, scuttle looks clear of water. A mystery! Where was the water entering your Tino? Any help much appreciated. KInd regards, Rob.

Dave, not as difficult as expected. Hands down back of back seat and YANK it up and forward. Two 10mm bolts secure rear back upright then Yank this out.pull off rubber door seals and remove clips holding plastic panels -small screwdriver will lift plugs and allow fixing to be lifted.You can now get to lower end of struts.Lift boot lid as high as possible and SECURELY prop it up I used some heavy timber. Remove clips and boltson lower ends and clips on upper. Worth doing both sides while you are at it. Makeke sure you get a LEFT and A RIGHT hand strut they are notinterchangeable. They cost about £60 pounds a pair from SGS Engineering or Eurocarparts. Worth having a go good luck. Frank f.morgan from Devon

The saga continues: Thanks for you previous comments about these struts. I have since been on to various suppliers (inc Europarts and SGS) but all I am asked for is the part number on the side of the old struts, which are still in the car of course. Do you hacve any idea as to what they can be. It appears that most of the country hacve no knowledge of the c+c and part diagrams have no no number and no picture. Any ideas at all? Cheers!

It is also producing black smoke and smells like unburnt fuel. Firstly it started with high fuel consumption and the transmission (cvt) started to slip.

Hi I have a Nissan micra 2003 plate but I haven't got any power to my radio any ideas?

Answers

Hi Colin, I am currently trying to trace a similar problem on my daughters Micra. The first port of call are the fuses. There is a fuse box below and to the right of the steering wheel, the radio fuse is doubled up with the electric mirrors -so if they work it is probably OK. There is a second fuse box forward of the battery and another audio fuse in there. I believe there is a further fuse inside the radio, to access this the radio must be removed -this is as far as I have progressed so far! To remove the radio just google it and watch the video!

Nissan Almera Tino

Car keeps cutting out whilst driving and the management light comes on, I have to leave it for 5 mins and then it restarts and may or may not cut out again on the journey. The speed or distance driven before it cuts out does not make a difference. I have paid two separate garages for diagnostics but no fault shows up and the management light has not come on. The second garage kept the car for a week and he drove it 3 days without a problem but the next time he took the car out it cut out twice. He was very thorough but said he had to admit defeat and just didn't know what the problem was. The only suggestion he had was that it could well be the ECU. I only bought the car privately a few months back and the problem started the following day, unfortunately for me it was bought as seen so nothing I can do.

Recently the engine started vibrating and humming. I changed the petrol pump, it worked and performed perfectly well for 5 km and then went back to dragging and failing to accelerate, even if I push down the gas pedal. Also the engine sound was not so smooth. Could it be the pump or the filter? Is there a way of cleaning the petrol filter system? This filter system is expensive to replace where I am. Thanks in advance.

No answers but I would be interested in any replies; my Micra developed the same fault today. I read something about headlamp actuators causing the problem. Car off to garage on 16.7, will post an update. Julie from Worcestershire

Nissan X-Trail

After a while of driving my X-Trail 2002, it suddenly shifts to low gear with high revs, but the car is slowing down. It feels like the car is unable to shift to fast gear. I did send it to the Nissan agent for a computer diagnostic test on the transmission. The result is ’no fault found’. Could someone please help me solve the problem?

Dear Gilbert, I had the same problem with my Nissan Xtrail QR20 2001 Model. Such a problem is caused by defective cylinder head gasket which allows water channels to flow outside defined channels in the engine block. Solution is to replace cylinder head gasket. Dadisds from Tanzania

I have a 2015 qashqai and when i drive at night the interior lighting around the radio and the auto gear stick is not on, i.e. I can't see the D, P, R etc letters by the gearstick. It must be a setting somewhere as when I turn the ignition off all the lights come on. I can't find anywhere in the manual where this is changed. Can anyone help please?
