I am thinking of buying a 2001 Nissan Navara 2.5td engine no TS25-068786A. Is this the good engine? It's done 85000miles.

Answers

Nissan navara engines are generally good solid.. but it can depend on how it's been looked after and driven by previous owners.. and, any vehicle can develop faults. R Evans from Caerphilly

Derek, Devon

Nissan Navara

Have a Navarra Rally Raid 2004 double cab pick up. Have been away for three weeks and started truck up with no problem except within about 15 seconds the air conditioning stopped working and will not turn back on, have swapped fuses in dashboard fuse box but with no effect. Does air con need to be reset if not used for sometime and if so how do I do that (I have no handbook) or are there more fuses that need to be checked? The air conditioning control unit is a digital display with push button controls (looks like a radio!) Any ideas will be gratefully received Thanks

Answers

Derek, the air conditioning should not need a reset but it may need a recharge.. that is removal of all the aircon chemicals and replace with new... but it could be the fan motor that is not working. If the control display looks normal then it may be the fan. R Evans from Caerphilly

i work with the nissan company in our workshop. we recently overhaul a yd25 engine and it started well but was smoking alot. for some reason our supervisor was playing around the fuel system, as they started the engine, the connecting rod went through the engine block.when we disassemble the engine ,the no. 2&3 cylinder at the top had alot of diesel... my question is this...... do the sensors on top of the fuel injectors need to be calibrated through the consult 3

Answers

You work at Nissan garage and they don't know????? Wow, good advert for Nissan training and technicians. . For a supervisor to be "playing around with the fuel system" suggests he is not trained and should never have been playing!!.. disgraceful behaviour at a Nissan main dealership. Yes, injectors need calibration, but this is done by programming them into ECU.. all this does is ensure the correct amount of fuel injected each time and that the injections are timed correctly.. but shouldn't/wouldn't cause the rod damage.. that is likely to be assembly error... timing chain slipped or camshaft & crankshaft timing not done correctly might cause it, but you'd likely have damage to valves and piston crowns R Evans from Caerphilly

There is a drain plug on the side of your engine block just under your turbo. You can see and access it through the passenger side wheel arch. It's a stand alone 12 or 14mm bolt that plugs into the side of your engine block just under your turbo. jarrod hickey from Australia
