I have just replaced a broken crankshaft on a Navara YD25 from UK, correctly timed everything and fitted back the engine. Its starting with a hard cranking, hunts and produces a heavy white smoke on idling. Whats troubling me is that it can clock its maximum speed when driving. What can be the problem?

No 2 Hollands Farm Cottages Hedsor Rd My nissan navara D40 2007 model has a problem with the radio sometimes not working intermittently and also the voice sound on the sat nav stopped working. Nissan say they can't help and only could replace the whole unit for £3000! What can i do. Is there anyone who repairs car audio equipment and what does anyone think causes this problem as everything actually works sometimes but the malfunction is getting more permanent.

Omollo, Kenya

Nissan Navara

Recently i noticed my car jerking on gear 2 and 3 thereafter a check engine sign would appear. Also it emits alot of black smoke when starting. A few days ago while driving, the car lost power while going uphill. Recently i changed the crank shaft sensor after it had brought a check engine sign. Further i did a full service by changing the engine oil, gear oil, fuel filter, air filter, oil filter etc. I further added additives to the diesel which would help in cleaning the fuel injectors. What could be causing the jerking? and what can i do to reduce the black smoke the car emits.

Answer this question

Michael Borrill, Gwent

Nissan Navara

I am at present stripping the front near side hub/ bearing unit, I have the four bolts securing the unit removed, but the hub unit is still firmly fixed. I thought a hub puller would draw it out? No good , looks like the drive shaft, I am pulling on, would rather go back into the front gear transfer box rather than make the "force fit" hub unit come forth. My only recourse is a big hammer and chisel driven between the old hub unit and the cast iron steering/suspension arm to try and separate them, before I start hammering , is this the only way to extract the hub unit?

white smoke is un-burnt diesel fuel, because a diesel motor is a compression ignition you need to check the compression values of your engine. Dave from New Zealand

I would suggest if your engine has a turbo (I think it should have), I suspect it has issues. Check it by removing the big air pipe on the cold side and see that it has no major oil residue inside. Generally the power issue is related to the turbo condition. Otherwise ask your mech to calibrate the injectors (piezo-electric injectors). Had the same issue with D40. Creed from Botswana

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

My Navara 2.5dCI 4x4 2010 model every now and then the engine light lid up and the engine goes into limp mode. The codes are injector circuit failure. Then I pulled over, switch off the engine and on, then it works, but have some knocking sound in the engine with black smoke and then all is OK after that. It has done it twice now. If I take the vehicle to a dealer, all codes are history and shows no current fault. One code shows injector circuit supply voltage low.
