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.

Hello everybody, I have a Nissan Navara 2005 model and I am facing a problem. I was driving and suddenly saw an orange light sign appeared and the speed of my car went down to 60-70 and it started giving white smoke.

Good day everyone, I have an oil leak from around the injectors. I have changed the seals already but it leaks. I have also tried putting some silicone around it but it still leaks. It`s a constant tear of oil especially when the engine is accelerated. Any suggestions?

Yes mate k&n air filters will make your truck perform better but you need to get full kit, they are fairly straight forward to fit. steve from Stoke-on-Trent

Hello, I bought an Aventura 2.5dci in the UK,it produces lots of heat in the driver cabin specifically under the steering. The aircon does not function as well. Someone told me the previous owner might have removed the blanket that stops the heat from the engine to get into the cabin. How true is this and if it's true,can i replace it?

Hi. We have a Nissan 2.5 Navara 2005 diesel with a YD25DDTI engine. We find that the timing chain on the right hand cam gear seems to "jump". You get a clicking sound and then it jumps and the engine does not idle and smokes. We have replaced the diesel fuel pump and timing chain, tensioner and rails as well as the two cam gears on which the chain runs. Would you be able to shed some light on what I can look for? Many Thanks Regards Gerald

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help? My Navara has been in the garage many times for the same problem and it`s still the same. It loses power and judders when I go from 3rd to 4th gear and then stuggles..specially with hills...help
It`s a switch on the gearbox, was about £70, fairly easy to put on, you can do it from inside the car. Take rubber gatters off gear stick, it screws in to driver`s side of gearbox, two wires go to it. You can just cut wires off but the heater switch on side of the dash that makes the engine rev faster doesn`t work then. There is a way of checking it, I think you put heater switch on to rev high, then put the clutch down. If it`s the switch on the gearbox the revs won`t alter on the clock in third and fourth. steve from South Yorkshire

The vehicle started with taking too long to start and started only after spraying quick start. After that it sounded diesel knock and no more power. I then fitted a new fuel regulator but it doesn't want even to start anymore, even if you spray quick start it just burns that quick start and dies. I checked the flow of the fuel and to me seems very slow.

I have a used 2010 D40 Navara that I bought a month ago. Recently the dashboard lights suddenly came on and off even without the key inserted. Is it because there is weather proofing problems of electrical components under the hood? I saw in one forum there were owners also talking about this. This few days I noticed that it was ok. I'm worried if there are other problems. Can anyone assist?

I`m looking for help with my 2002 Nissan Navara. It was running fine but now it sometimes doesn't start and when it does it starts belching out smoke. Sometimes when you push on the accelerator it just cuts out. It might run for a few weeks then goes back to cutting out and struggling to start. I hope someone can help out? Cheers!!

Hi there, I seem to have a nasty rattle coming from the right side of the engine, close to the pedals at around 2500 rpm-3000rpm. What's concerning is that it only happens now and then. The vehicle has only 8000 Kms and this has been happening since new. Please help. Up until now, I haven't enjoyed the vehicle because I'm waiting for it to break down.

Hi, I have a 2007 d40 auto 2.5L. I have had to have the cylinder head changed and head gasket. I drove it to the mechanic with no problem selecting drive. He now rings me saying that the van is now running but it won`t select D. He has had electricians in and they say it`s a fault with the gearbox and they need to take it off to find out what it is. They also want to charge me for all this work. I just want to know if they could damage the gearbox doing the previous work or if anybody else has had this problem with the auto gearbox?
