My Navara 2.5d 04plate 2005 suddenly decided to idle around 1800 rpm and won't return to normal, all heat switches are off. Can you help?

Answers

Solved, flicked heat switch on while engine running then off, put clutch down and held for 30 seconds, released clutch and left to idle for 5 mins, it corrected itself. PS you can literally hear your money getting spent while revs were high, but hey, 5 mins. :-) ;-) paul from Peterborough

Nissan Qashqai

What do you get in the boot of a Qashqai instead of a spare wheel?

Answers

Inflation kit, which plugs in to 12v power socket plus some tyre sealant. Not had the misfortune to have to use it, but I understand that it is good enough to get you to a tyre fitter. However, I'm told that it makes a real mess of the tyre, negating any possible repair, and also that the rim requires a good clean because it is coated in a thick layer of sealant! Think I'd rather have a space-saver tyre. ArtyPea from West Sussex

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/. MarkH from Surrey

I had the same problem. Realised the kink was in a place that meant it would work so long as I didn't turn up the heater more than two thirds the way. In my case the bracket and retainer were intact, it was simply that the cable was kinked. So have fed back the cable, covered it with Vaseline, tried as best as possible to bend the kink out of the cable, and then fixed a screw through the plastic surround around the heater controls to stop me turning it above two thirds of the way up. A bit of a bodge, but did it in half an hour and it works again. At least for now........ Pete from Canada

Have just read this thread and found it to be a lifesaver. Thanks to everyone who contributed. I have a Nissan Almera 2002, heater was on full, no cold at all. Went onto YouTube and saw how to take the dash apart by searching 'removing CD player in Nissan Almera'. After a tricky hour, figured out the cable retaining clip broke out of it's casing on the control unit, so I fashioned a little 'L' shaped thing out of a bit of aluminium and screwed it to the casing so the cable retaining clip could be popped back in. Took over 3 hrs to sort out that little retaining clip but Ahhh, cold air again! Hope this helps the next victim of the "Almera heater control cable retaining clip". Hayden from Wiltshire

Heinrich Barkhuizen, South Africa

Nissan X-Trail

Hi, I`ve got a 2005 model 2.5lt petrol, had it for 3 years now with 144,000km on, not doing a lot of mileage with it, only did 11,500km in the last 3 years. Problem is it looks like it`s using oil. I did a 400km trip last week and oil dropped from full to about 2/3 on the dipstick. It doesn`t smoke when starting cold or from what I can see pulling away from stop street. Any advice on what to check for oil usage, must I have a compression test done? There are no oil leaks on the motor, what else can cause this? Thank you very much.

Answers

Heinrich, a byproduct of burning petrol in an internal combustion engine is water vapour. This water vapour also enters the crankcase. This water vapour condenses and runs to the bottom of the oil pan. It subtly raises the level of the oil. Keep running short trips and the water vapour keeps filling the sump. Now go for a long trip. The water now evaporates out of the oil. Therefore there is less oil showing on the dipstick. All engines use oil. Google it and see..even Rolls Royce.... If you immediately then went on another 400km journey without having topped up the oil, there would be hardly any change in the oil level at the 800km mark.. Go back to short journeys and the sump will "refill" slightly with water.......holding the level..until the next long journey. I would be surprised if you had to put more than 500ml into the sump to refill it???? what are your normal oil change periods/ If you are doing fewer miles, maybe use the severe service change periods so that you remove the water by changing the oil more frequently.... John Smith from New Zealand

Hi John, thanks for your answer, makes sence. Service intervals is every 15000km, I bought the car from dealer and they had the 135000km service done before I got it. Will do oil change and check, hopefully this is the answer to my worry.. Appreciate. Heinrich Barkhuizen from South Africa

stick finger up exhaust pipe.if it comes out black like soot its using oil. the cataleptic converter burns the oil and sends it out the tail pipe, you will never see smoke or any oil drips, you will just see your oil levels going down more so on long trips jan from Australia

Answers

To be fair if the engine is still all working fine, has no taps or knocks then your best bet is just to leave it till they actually need them, as the engine will have to be removed on the K11s and K12s, if they need doing be sure to do the head gasket and timing chain at the same time, but generally speaking these cars carry on for a very long time.

Am sure I read somewhere to change it on 10th year or 100,000 miles, whichever came first Also, anyone have any idea of the costs involved? With thanks, K

Answers

I know that on the K11 Micras it is pretty much a throw away job, either buy a new engine or scrap, strip the car for spares, It cost a lot of money to have it changed, if you do get the head gasket done at the same time other wise if the head gasket goes you will have to get Another timing chain kit for it. Guesst from Kent

Hello Guesst from Kent, Thank you for your response. I've asked a few people, all giving advice that if no rattling noises when driving, then it should be ok. A local garage said approx £200 to change timing chain but you are talking about the engine and scrapping the car. It is in good condition at moment and I'm hoping to get a couple more years out of it. Local garage said to me - doesn't have timing belt, has chain, doesn't need changing BUT should change cam belt. I thought they were one and the same thing. Luckily, my uncle is going to accompany me to the garage for mot. Are you saying that the engine costs a lot of money to change, or the timing chain? Thanks so much for any further info you are able to share with me! Most garages have said to me that micros go on and on......it's got just under 55,000 mileage so I've been told it's virtually new!! Ha ha ha if only that were true. Car has had new batty, clutch and 4 new tyres in last 2 years. Have never had to spend on it before. It's worth more to me on the road than to sell or part-ex, can't afford new car! With thanks, Kim KTH from Derbyshire

It may be a different story on the K12s but I know the K11s are expensive to change the chain. They may be on about the auxiliary belt needs changing, which is pretty normal and cheap, easy to replace. As for the chain I would just listen for any tapping as that is an early sign that it is on its way out and yes, they do go on for ages, they are forgiving little cars when it comes to general maintenance. I've seen ones running "fine" on less then half a litre of oil. For a little example of how long the timing chains will last for my daily driver has 68,000 miles. That's an X reg (2001) one with the original chain. My other one is an 02 plate, only got it last week and that needs an auxiliary belt and an oil and filter change, it's currently only got 1 litre of oil in it and the filters going rotten, last recorded oil change was in 2009. So as reliability goes, Micras will carry on for a long time. Guesst from Kent

It could be a number of things, what I would check in no particular order, are the lamda sensors (o2 sensor). Also the mass airflow sensor. Check for leaks from the vacuum hose. It could mean that the throttle body needs cleaning/changing or the EGR valve needs replacing. Lamda sensors are usually pretty expensive especially if it's post cat. The cheapest option is smoke test to check for any leaks and replacing the necessary hoses if a leak is found. Craig from Lincolnshire

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.

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

There is a strange noise as if there is something catching on every revolution the driver`s rear wheel is doing. I`ve had the rear brakes replaced (new shoes, new discs, new pads) on both wheels. Before having replaced the brakes there was no noise and things were fine. The mechanic has stripped down the brakes three times since but is none the wiser as to what is causing the strange noise. Does anyone know what it could be because it`s driving me nuts?

Hi, I have had the same problem a few times with my T31. Up until now, to fix it the Nissan dealer has just needed to bend back a protection plate that is near the brake disc - I have been told that a stone can could cause the plate to bend back, catching the brake disc. Haydn from Germany

i have a Nissan x-trail 2001 model, when you start driving it on a highway no problem, but when you constantly slow down and want to increase speed it fails to change gears while the revs go up but transmission not responding. we tried to change the oil, the cooler but to no avail. what cause that?

Answers

What transmission and engine combination is in your vehicle? Did this happen suddenly from one day to the other, or was there a gradual deterioration in the gear changes over weeks? John Smith from New Zealand

Nissan Micra

I have a Nissan Micra 53 plate, the engine management light came on so I took it to a garage and had a new camshaft sensor put on. The light is still on and I have been now told it needs a new cam chain. Has anybody else had this problem? I`m not sure whether to have the cam chain replaced as it`s expensive £600.

Answers

I would go to another couple of garages to get it looked t and get more opinions. Guesst from Kent

I had the same problem on a 53 Micra cam chain needs changing after so many thousands of miles. I didn't change cam chain and it ended up costing me more for a new engine, as it will seize up richard riley from Hartlepool

Hey everyone Ive got a 1992 Nissan Terrano VG30 V6 Manual that i'm having trouble with, any help with it would be great.. I parted in the garage yesterday afternoon. Went to start it today for the first time and it wouldn't start, sounded like a flat battery, so i tried again, it started but there was a lot of white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe, also water. There is no oil in the radiator, also there isn't any water in the oil - dipstick/under the cap. It seems to be running fine but its smoking like a train... I think it could be the head gasket? Any ideas would be great thanks.

Water and white smoke sound like a failed head gasket. You may notice a sweet antifreeze smell as well. Has the radiator water level dropped? Bubbles in radiator when running? duncan from New Zealand
