I have an X-Trail 2005, it has a qr20 engine. It starts with a good idle but won`t rev up. When I press the pedal nothing happens. I scanned the ecu but no fault codes given, check engine light is normal. I tried putting other pedal switch/sensor but no luck, tried putting a different throttle body, same thing as the old throttle body it didn`t work. I was hoping you can help with my problem? Thanks

Nissan Qashqai 2010

I have a Nissan Qashqai which has done 21,000 miles and has recently had to be towed back from Ireland where we were on holiday. According to the RAC the timing belt had snapped. I have been told that it is normal for this to be changed at around 78,000 miles but due to a manufacturing fault the diesel pump is sitting at an angle and when it vibrates it is rubbing up against the timing belt and wearing it away. Depending on the speed the car was travelling at the time the belt snapped, the damage could be anything from a replacement belt to a whole new engine. Luckily we were slowing down to go around a roundabout at the time, as the car just lost all power and the engine stopped without any warning at all. I’ve since heard of other Qashqais with similar stories, the lowest mileage so far being 18,500. Nissan must know about this, are they just sitting on it and trying to keep it quiet? If we had been doing 70 on the motorway what might have happened?

Answers

My 1.5DCi Quashqai N Tech has 44K miles on it and is 1 month out of warranty. The timing belt has broken at 70mph on cruise control. No warning, Nissan don’t want to know!!! I have heard from a mechanic friend that this is a Renault engine and it has a known problem with freying the timing belt on one edge. When the car was inspected the confirmation was timing belt broken and worn on one side. This should not happen and book suggests 75K miles or 5 years. Poor show from Nissan, expect better from a company like that Graham White from Mid-Lothian (Edinburghshire)

Hi. Our Qashqai is still in the dealership and has been there now for over 3 weeks. It’s been fixed under warranty but needs a whole new engine. The guy at the repair desk said "due to the speed it was being driven at the time, it needs a new engine" to which I replied, "what 20miles an hour, slowing down to go around a roundabout, when it’s made to travel at 70 on the motorway, I don’t think so". He then just shut up. NISSAN KNOW THEY HAVE A FAULTY ENGINE AND ARE COVERING IT UP. How many people have died in pile ups on the motorway because they have suddenly lost power whilst overtaking on the outside lane? It only takes an artic or boy racer to be right up behind you for a large scale pile up to occur, if no-one in your car survives to tell what happened it would probably be put down to ’driver error’. You hear it all the time on the news. This is definitely one for Watchdog. Bet Nissan would fix your engine if Anne Robinson asked them to do so. The power of the media is vast. Contact Watchdog and I for one will be happy to back you to the hilt. Remember that it’s Nissan’s faulty diesel pump that’s causing the timing belt to fray!!! Caroline Cryans from Scotland

H Caroline, very interesting reading, I currently have a issue with my Quashqai, similar mileage, however it is being corrected by Nissan, will post if any issues arise, pick up today Ray Selby from Yorkshire

Hi, hope it all goes better for you than it did for us. We waited for 6 weeks to get ours back with it’s ’new’ engine. If that’s a new engine then I’m Elvis and you can all stop looking for him now! Some of the bits are new but the engine as a whole is definitely not, they didn’t even steam clean it to pretend. It now won’t go up even a slight incline in second and we have to change down into first to get it up. It doesn’t start first time in the morning and when it does the smell is horrible. There’s a very strange noise which comes and goes and it just isn’t the same car it used to be. All in all it’s now going back to them with a long list of faults for them to look at again Caroline Cryans from Scotland

Hi, I have 2010 Qashqai with 46k miles on clock, had 1st service but not 2nd did it myself. 4 weeks left on warranty but Nissan say not covered because missed 2nd service although it is something they would not do on low millage. Anybody have an idea what to do now? Paul from Staffordshire

The excess water is from your aircon evaporator. This is created because the fan sucks in warm air and blows it across a much colder coil [evaporater coil]. The air in the water turns to ice, when you turn the unit off the ice melts and returns to water. The same as a fridge / freezer. Geoff from Essex

Nissan Almera Tino 2002

The heater on my Nissan Almera Tino 2002 is blowing hot air all the time, even when the switch is on it`s cold setting and even if the air con is active. Is this a fuse issue? Please can anyone give any solution? Regards.

Answers

Hi. I have this on my wife’s Tino. The problem is that the heat control is on a cable that can become kinked when you move it too quickly from hot to cold and back. When this happens, the cable sleeve moves backwards and forwards, but the cable itself doesn’t move, so the control in the dashboard stays on hot. We had a garage secure the cable sleeve with cable ties, which held it still so the actual cable could move. That works for a while, but eventually you may need a replacement part. Rhey are on ebay but make sure you get one with A/C if you need it. Hope that helps Tony Simper from Berkshire

The cable retainer bracket has broken so the temperature control knob does not pull the cable. There is a kit available from Nissan for only a few pounds or you could replace the complete heater control unit for about £160 DC from Yorkshire

I just looked at this problem on my mother-in-law's Almera. Cable ties didn't look viable due to access, so I used a bit of Sugru moulded around the end of the cable sleeve and the fixed section to keep the sleeve in place. Sugru looks like plasticine, but cures to a solid, rubber-like material that bonds to all sorts of surfaces. It's now widely available in retailers (e.g. B&Q, Wilko), or direct at http://sugru.com/.

Nissan Qashqai

Hi! i have my new Qashqai for a few months now. Basically i m pleased with it , but i can t figure it out what is the meaning of two features in this vechicle. First what's the point of "Chasis control" , what that feature should suppose to tell to driver? what is the added value? Second sometimes you can hear, while driving, sound like of Cuckoo, i don t have any idea what kind of warning is this. I thought it happens only in curves , but recentlly i hear the sound also on streight street driving with low speed. Officially car dealer says it is sensor for speed radar. I don't buy that explaination. Anyone has some information regarding this issue?

Answers

The chassis control helps to control steering on bends if any of the wheels lose traction. The cuckoo sound is to warn you of a sharp bend. You also get a visual highway code sharp bend sign and speed on the bottom right hand corner of the sat nav screen. Hope this helps. Allen from Merseyside

Nissan Primera

I have just purchased a Nissan Primera and when I hit 2000 rpm it loses power and bunny hops (judders), it runs ok for a while then starts to do it or it does it from the get go.

Answers

Hi Ryan if your check light (eng mngment indicator) is on please get to a garage and ask them to use the consultant tool to diagnose the code. Generally the code indicates the problem, eg: if it`s a sensor issue it will say so, or anything else. The technician will be able to tell the matter based on the indicated code.

Hi. We have a 2005 Nissan Note. As a Japanese import into New Zealand, it has no User manual with it in English. So we are left in the dark regarding some of the features of our vehicle, though I did manage to download as a pdf file a user manual for the 2010 Note. But of course some of what is contained in this, does not apply to our 2005 vehicle. In particular, when the petrol light goes on, we do not have any indication how much petrol remains in the tank , which sometimes results in running out of petrol. Does anyone have an idea of approximately how much is left in the petrol tank of a 2005 Note when the petrol warning light come on please? Thank you. Alistair

Anita Masih, West Midlands

Nissan Qashqai

Over the past 4 days I have been experiencing a intermittent clunking noise when depressing the clutch. It is loud and the only way I can describe it is that it sounds like plastic popping. I thought that the pedal cover could have been pushed in when depressed and then popping back out but upon checking I discovered that the pedals are metal ! I do feel a little vibration under my foot. It does not occur every time I depress the pedal. Anyone have any ideas please?

Answers

Hi Anita, I have the same problem with my Qashqai, in fact it has happened 4/5 times now and I had my clutch replaced during April this year and it happened again last week Friday. I don't know what you call it but basically it is the screw holding the "resistance" to your clutch in place that is loosening. What will eventually happen is that you will step on the clutch, the screw will fall out and you will be unable to change gears or to put your car in gear. Luckily for me this has always happened when I was waiting at a stop sign or driving on a quiet road. I'm too scared to think about what would have happened had I been on the highway.Good luck!

When I'm driving on a long stretch @ say 80 to 100 KMh suddenly the car jerks and then the spee is reduced. When I try to accelerate, it just goes into terking mode. My mechanic on troubleshooting told me it was a throttle issue. This was replaced but problem recurred after a few days. I was asked to change accelerated pedal and some sensors but that will not solve the problem.

I've had a search around the usual auction sites, and there are mirrors + backing for ££, but having a quick poke and pull at mine it doesn't seem to want to come away from the main housing. Any help would be appreciated, The victim is a Nissan Mistral 2.7TD 1995 R20 7 seater Thanks in advance

Hi, you access it from inside the door panel. Remove the arm rest (screw under lug in the recessed bit on top), door handle (surround slides forward) and window switches (they have a clip at one end). The internal panel has gromets round the bottom, carefully prize these off with a screwdriver or similar tool (careful they break easily). Slide the panel up out of the window recess at the top. There should be a plastic dust seal inside the panel secured around its edge with permanently wet sealer. Carefully peel this aside so that it can be put back later. Now looking up into the door you can see how the mirror is attached. Unplug the wires and remove to replace or diss-assemble. Assembly is the reverse of this proceedure.

You have the same problem as mine. In case a solution is found please let me know. I am on +260 977 424319/ +260 953088100/ +0962 880081. I will post for you if I find one with the solution. Mudenda Hamanjanji from Zambia

Hi Guys, I experienced the same problem recently. When it happens on the road pack off the road for about 15 mins and re strart. If the problem persist scan with a diagnostic tool thats when you have a check engine on your indicator. If your scan shows a code of P1715 it has to do with your speed sensor. Try cleaning the sensor or replacing it . All the best. Evans from Ghana

Nissan Terrano Ii

Hi ,i have a unusual one here...Nissen Terrano 91 Diesel manual wont start after long drive.always starts on short around town trips .Have replaced Battery and new terminal clamps to battery also.Didnt fix problem. All the lights on dash including glow light come on like normal but when turn key there is nothing,no click ,no wind over ,nothing....just seems to be after 50km plus drives this happens but goes every time after a jump start.just need to take jumper leads on longer trips and hope i can get a jump somewhere off someone. Can anyone shed light on this?? Be much appreciated cheers

Answers

I've had a similar problem, turned out to be the thermostat. Check your temperature gauge if it's constantly low then I would start cheap and give it a replacement. Whilst the engine is running cool (stat open) the glow plugs won't turn off using battery power so short journeys ok longer ones not good. Hope this cures yours as it did mine Brendan Turnbull from Devon

Nissan Navara 2008

Hi, I have a 2008 D40 Nissan Navara and recently I have had my 4 wheel drive warning light come on which stays on for a while. If I change over from 2 to 4 wheel it goes out and the picture on the dash comes on. After a bit it reverts back to the warning light and no picture. I have changed the sensors on the box but it`s made no difference. Also my abs and brake warning light come on and stay on and just recently my speedo has started to drop off to zero and when that happens the audio on my radio turns down. I carry a code reader and when this happens I have checked for codes and nothing shows, but when this happens if I flick the ignition on and off all goes back to normal for a while. Can anybody help me with this? Is there anybody else who has had this same problem?

Sounds like a problem with your earths.. battery to body, body to engine and trans. his is also the cheapest possible maintenance you can do yourself..use sandpaper, contact cleaner and antiseize grease....Clean and rebolt tightly. As you know, electrickery requires a good, clean connection between sensors and engine or transmission, and then relies on the earth straps to transfer to the body, and the last link in the chain is the earth strap from the body to the battery. Dirt or corrosion reduces the voltage transferred..gives erroneous readings... Other weak links..the earth from the instrument panel to the body??? or a crack in the circuit board of the dash . Each time you switch the vehicle off then on again you are rebooting the computer. But if the sensor readings still do not make sense the computer should throw check codes..what sort of reader are you using????..... John Smith from New Zealand

I carry a OBD11 code reader and I have had my car into the local garage and they can not get any codes up on the one they use in there garage and I assume they will have a proper garage one., just recently my speedo as stopped working as well , and I now know that all these problems are linked .

Hi, I had the same problem with mine. I found the hose located on the bonnet underneath had come loose and the washer fluid was gong into the engine bay. The hose should push straight back on. I hope this solves the problem Dan from Hampshire

My X-TRAIL has high revs, I have had a new throttle body fitted. However, the revs are still high this is more so when the car is stationary. Any advise would be appreciated.

Answers

Once you change the throttle body, it has to be reprogrammed. The procedure is called "re-learn". I suggest you take it to the dealer. For this he'll have to bring your idle to normal before reprogramming. They just disconnect an air hose for that. Paul from Canada
