Nissan X-Trail

Hi I have a 2006 Nissan X trail, petrol 2wd to 4wd. Just recently the car has begun to beep about 5 seconds into the trip and only once. Sounds like it is coming through the stereo speakers. It is not the lights left on warning or the key left in ignition no other warning lights are displayed - any ideas what this may be? Thanks Jacquie

Nissan Qashqai

I've a 2011 Qashqai+2. 1.6 Petrol. Although I find the car to be quite slow anyway, when I put my foot down on the accelerator it takes a while to pick up speed, but then suddenly you get a boost from the engine. This happens in all gears. I've a small oil leak, but have yet to see where its coming from? Is this normal for it to suddenly pick up speed, or could it be down to the oil leak? No lights come on from the dash board. I have to say the leak is VERY small patches on the drive.

Answers

Manufacturers tend to go for smooth torque curves rather than profiles where the engine would pick up like you describe so is likely a fault. Could be a sensor or if timing belt has been refitted a tooth or two out that can do funny things. I think the engine has variable valve timing (Wikipedia says it does!). Interestingly, many vvt systems use pressurised oil to control the changing cam angle. I initially dismissed the oil leak as irrelevant, but if it is from the cam control it could be linked. Vv changes the cam timing according to revs. Not working would leadeth timing fixed and so ok at some revs but not at others, ie the problem you observe. Mark from Lancashire

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

There is something on later qashqais that briefly applies the brakes to stop body pitch and roll. This is or is part of chassis control. Mark from Lancashire

Nissan Terrano 2004

We have a Nissan Terrano sve 3.0 manual diesel 04 plate and we have just had a full service and the oil light stays on, even though we had a new oil pressure switch fitted. The engine oil is reaching the top of the rocker box under pressure. Is there anything we can do or do you think it could be the loom? Any suggestions would be gratefully received, thanks. (diesel)

Answers

Hi, just had the same problem with mine and there is another oil pressure switch just above the the starter motor which you can get to through the driver side wheel arch Matthew Cowley from Cambridgeshire

Hi, I have a 55 3.0 se di commercial and changing the oil pressure switch just behind the starter motor stopped the oil pressure light coming on ... first I change the one near the engine oil filter and that didn`t work... thank god I came on here... Thanks  Jim Haigh from Nottinghamshire

Firstly the Terrano 3.0 has two oil pressure switches, both are bit prone to getting gummed up and putting the oil light on. The one on the nearside (adjacent to oil filter) is a low pressure switch (0.25 bar) and is stamped P15. The one the offside (adjacent to starter) is a high pressure switch (2.5 bar)and is stamped P25, it also has a yellow painted ring around the chamber. This switch works via the ECM and only come into play from 3600rpm (according to Nissan), they are otherwise identical and can easily be inadvertently interchanged. I would recommend changing the two for genuine Nissan replacements. Take care not to loose the paired washer on the oil filter side as the switch is screwed into a union which then goes into a banjo fitting for the turbo oil supply pipe. The offside is best accessed via the rubber shielding behind the offside front wheel. Good luck! Marty Wright from Dorset

Hi all, I recently bought a Nissan Terrano 3.0 Turbo Diesel and the oil light is coming on in the dash. I was hoping to replace the two oil pressure switches but can only find the high pressure switch and can't find the low pressure switch. Everyone I have been on to has told me get two high pressure switches and put them in. Would this do any damage? Please get back to me if you know anything, cheers. Joe Houlihan from Ireland

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

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!

Nissan Terrano Ii

My speedometer is not working and the fuel gauge is not showing at all. What could be the cause?

Answers

Hi,this also happened to me on my Terrano. Nissan garage recommended disconnecting the battery and leaving it disconnected all night. In the morning the panel had reset itself and all was back to normal. If this doesn't work, then you're looking at a new panel or the inconvenience of never knowing what speed you're doing or how much fuel you have. Hope this helps. Jules from Surrey

Nissan X-Trail

I own an Nissan X-Trail 2.5 Sport 2003 model which had an engine problem and was replaced with a 2.0 engine. I have a problem which has be recurring every now and then. 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. Now I sent it to another garage where they traced the wiring to the control board and detected some dust which has been cleaned. This worked for two days and it is now showing the "check your engine" signal even though it has not shown the jerking symptoms. This is really frustrating and I really need your assistance. Many thanks.

Hi folks. My wife collected her new Qashqai today and when we went to lock it tonight it won't lock. It will open with either fob but it won't lock with any of them. This is making me feel like we're doing something obviously silly or that something`s wrong with the car. It locks with the key no problem. Any ideas folks? Regards, Scott

In the boot there is a cloth trim much the same as a roller blind is the best way I can explain it. You need to pull it out on the roller and attach to the retaining brackets. It is in your handbook including diagram. Hope this helps Stan from Warwickshire
