Nissan Primera

Hey there I have a Nissan Primera which will start and run for about ten minutes then all of a sudden it dies. Why does this happen please?

Answers

That's a problem I've encountered before and I came to realize that the engine has been completely consumed! It is a very common problem with Nissan Primera. My car repairer think it is due to the poor maintenance of the engine. The solution might rise to buying a new engine for your car Ahmedein from Mauritania

Nissan Qashqai

Hello - the wife has a 2011 qashai - she has just called me to tell me that the orange exclamation mark triangle light is staying on and beeping whilst she is driving - I have looked on google to try and find a reason but no joy, can anyone help me please ??

Answers

Hi, Normally, the display in the middle shows what the problem is, e.g. seat belt not fastened etc. Could it be that a heavy load was on one of the seats which made it think that a person had not fastened their seat belt? Cycle though the display by pressing the "i" on the steering wheel. Derek from Bedfordshire

Mark shepherd, Derbyshire

Nissan Terrano Ii

I have a terrano II 1997 2.7 diesel.THe air bag light is flashing and I have retrieved the fault code by the key method,my problem is that despite following nissans directions I cannot find the diagnostic plug,it is not near the fuse box nor anywhere in the vehicle,how if the vehicle has no plug can I clear fault codes.

Answers

Hi Mark, I had the same problem this week with abs sensors. We found it up under the dash above the fuses it did not look like the usual diagnostic plug, just an off white in colour plug with if I remember correctly it has 14 or 18 wires coming into it. Even my fully qualified mechanic said that he didn't think that it was the diagnostic plug. It ended up it was the right one. Only difference mine is a 2000 model. Others had told me that on some models they are behind the radio. Hope this helps Gwyn. Gwyn from Ceredigion

Thanks ,found it tucked right up the dash,I have the 7short flashes which indicates airbag control unit malfunction,will I be able to clear fault or is it a replacement unit. Mark shepherd from Derbyshire

Amanda, West Yorkshire

Nissan Qashqai

Hi my airbag warning light was on, so took it to Nissan who said they cannot do it under warranty as it looks like I shoved something under the seat. Now I know it isn't my fault as I won't put anything under the driver`s seats. Anyway they are trying to charge me over £1000 for fixing it. I am going to take it elsewhere to do it as I`m not paying that. Does anyone have any ideas of a cheaper fix? Can it be done cheaper? Something to do with the wire housing?

Nissan Qashqai

My stop/start on my brand new Qashqai is not working. I have taken it back to the dealer 3 times and they have handed it back saying the computer has been reset. On the third occasion it did come up on the dash that there was a fault. They say the computer says that my foot keeps staying/hovering on the clutch as if implying that it is my fault that it has not worked. It has worked after each visit to the dealer but only for a day. Has anyone else had this problem

Answers

Hi John, Yes, got mine last week and the stop/start is very intermittent. Thought it was me, since it's the first engine of this type I've had, but I can't see that I'm doing anything different each time. I've also found that the anti-rollback isn't working either. I'll pop it back to Nissan and won't be accepting a 'reset' unless they can prove it is fixed. I've been down that road with Vauxhall! Paul from Bath and North East Somerset

With reguards to the stop start i had a mercedes with this feature and i thought there was a problem because it was very tempermental so i looked it up thinking there may be a fault my results were that the car has to be at optimum running temperature and have enough electrical power to keep all the other instruments working hense the engine kicking in automatically if you put the a/c on Matthew from Lancashire

Recently bought the 2008 Qashqai (Dualis - Australian model) and started having engine feathering and fuel supply issues after 5 months, had it serviced at a Nissan dealership with them fully aware of my problems, they seemed to go away but 2 months on they are back. The engine seems to falter as if it has dirty spark plugs or loose leads and it is not determined other than by any speed over 20km/hr, could it be spark plugs / leads / fuel pump / air fuel mix sensor or something else.

Answer this question

derek perry, Surrey

Nissan Qashqai

just bought this car and returned it under a 3month warranty because it is burning 1tr oil for every 100 miles. They've had it for 2 weeks and say a compression tests shows all cylinders ok, so cant be head gasket or piston rings. Mechanic has added a Redex additive which causes the rubber seals to be revitalised and says it is ok now. However this seems a very short term solution but they say it is common on Quashquai and will be as good as fitting new rubber seals. Is this right or are we being fobbed off.

Answers

Redex is a red herring fob off, it does nothing and is not recommended by many manufactuers. Is there an obvious leak? It may sound stupid i know, but i don't know your level of knowledge. Is there any oil on the ground when you park, try running the engine for 30 minutes without driving it and look underneath afterwards. They should also be doing a Cylinder Leak Check not just a Compression Check. A compression check is while the engine is cranking and the only checks that the pressure is building up in the combustion chamber. The gauge has a one way valve so the pressure is not released, but this fails to show small leakage of compressed gasses past the oil ring or compression ring on the piston or past the valves. A cylinder leak check is a static check (engine not rotating) and checks leakage past the piston rings and inlet and exhaust valves. They could also do a blow-by test if they have the equipment. This is the measurement in litres per minute of gases and oil mixture in the crankcase breather system which then is fed back into the inlet system usually pre turbo. There are manufactuers limits for this at rpm and torque conditions. High readings (usually above 90 l/min, but can vary) indicate worn rings, scored bores etc. A blocked oil breather system could be another issue that will cause oil pressure in the crankcase, rather than a depression. You'll get a pressure at light torque/rpm but at high rpm/torque it should show a depression. Another reason could be oil leaking internally in the turbo if one is fitted. It's bearings are lubricated by engine oil, but if the seals fail the oil will be either forced through the compressor and back into the inlet air then burnt via the engine or it will be forced through the seal of the turbine which is driven by the exhaust gases and the oil will go down the exhaust pipe. If it goes down the exhaust it will damage the catalyst (diesel and petrol) and DPF if it's a diesel. It may also damage your Lambda sensor. So if you have had any of these parts play up then this may indicate oil saturation down the exhaust. Chris from Gloucestershire

Nissan Terrano Ii

Hiya guys. I could do with a little help. I have a Nissan Mistral import and it won`t stay in overdrive. It jumps in and out, hot and cold, no rhyme or reason to the way it does it. I have read advice on forum and done it all. I have checked everything possible. I`ve changed all fluids twice. The only thing I haven`t done is read the engine ecu, no-one round here has a scanner to read it and my local Nissan don`t want to know. Is it possible to have a fault in the ecu? I have been told I need a jodb scanner to read it, not an obd. I bought an obd scanner but that just comes up link error because it isn`t compatible. Any views would be welcomed, thanks very much. My Mistral is a 1996 2.7 turbo

Hi I have Almera Flare 1.5 2004 the seat belt light keep flashing even my seat belt (driver side) is on or off. I tried cleaning the the latch but still the light is flashing . what could have been the problem?

Answers

Reset the code - common fault in the airbag/seatbelt light. It will fail the MOT so fix the error. The simplest way I found was by turning the ignition on (but not starting the engine) so the warning lights light up. As soon as they go out..(approx 5-7 secs) switch the ignition off, wait approx 3 secs then switch to your lights again, then off, 3 secs etc....Do this 3 times and when you finally start the engine this has hopefully reset and cleared the fault. eddy from Falkirk

Nissan Micra

Went to start my car today and for some reason the PS light came on. There is also a "spanner" next to the mileage shown on the dash. The car will not start but merely sounds like it has a nasty cough and then cuts out. Also the Engine Management light comes on and the Oil light too. The car is a 10 plate and has done less than 10k in mileage - I haven`t even driven it myself as it was my aunty's car but she died so the car has been sitting for around 6 months, but it has been turned over regularly. As I say it just seems strange that this has happened all of a sudden as it always started before, come rain, sleet or snow. Any ideas or information would be brill, thank you

Nissan Almera Tino 2002

My Nissan Almera Tino`s headlights are badly corroded with scale. Someone said that there is a recall for them. Where do you look to get that information and then do you go to a Nissan garage? Thanks.

Answers

If you have no luck getting it done for free. Do your lights look frosted on the front of the lens if so, you can get a kit from turtle wax or 3M (3M kit has an attachment for a drill) to polish them, I had this problem and just bought a pack of wet and dry emery paper ranging from 240 grit to 1200 grit and sanded the lenses with progressivly finer paper, once I finished with 1200 grit I then used a fine cutting compound, took about an hour per light by hand, I now have a decent beam of light where there was once a useless blob of yellow Mark S from Wiltshire

Nissan X-Trail

bought car in May from small garage. Allegedly 106K on clock. Driving back on motorway to base the car lost power, then regained it in fits and starts. (not sure how long the garage had the car standing before sale)Think I may have been on an upwards slope when returning. Normal driving power resumed almost immediately. Next few journeys no issues. Took car on long run to test issues for before short guarantee runs out. Drove wonderfully to destination- hairpins, straights,uphill and down. Traffic and empty roads. Parked overnight. Next day started first time and then juddered not responding to accelerator. Went slow, almost stopping then accelerated, then slow. Once on open road after about an hour the 'problem' went and normal service was resumed. Decided to park on same down slope that night wondering if the angle might be causing some issue. Same problem exactly the next day although this time it took longer to smooth out. Will park on the level tonight to see if this changes anything. Have seen issues related to fuel filter/ air in pipes discussed in threads. Feels to me as a novice that it is a fuel starvation issue but I panic that it could be something more major and I only have a month left on warranty. Any help welcomed as garage will no doubt make light of it and it won't play up when I take it!

Tony, please read preceding questions and answers in this thread especially about the SCV (suction control valve) and MAF sensor issues this engine is (in)famous for...... Print some of these out and Google others and shove them in the face of the seller and tell him to fix it under the warranty. John Smith from New Zealand

first problem was lack of power and failure to respond to accelerator. Under warranty they handed the car to a diesel injection specialist who CLEANED a pump somewhere. Garage wouldn't give me written detail and mechanic just said he had cleaned 'it'. Worked perfectly afterwards. THEN a friend who was following me said that they saw black smoke when they assumed I had changed gear. Under warranty took it back and again it seems that the solution is/was. clean EGR valve. Local mechanic said they are a waste of space and are only there for the environment. Smoke now gone, running perfectly so I await the next 'incident'. I have a feeling that the car should have had a good clean as there are pumps and filters everywhere. Tony Stoddart from Spain
