Please my Nissan primastar van 2004 diesel keeps going off in motion and mostly when i slow down in traffic. When I start the engine immediately it comes up,running perfectly. It happens so often that it's becoming frustrating. It doesn't do that in the morning when i start it but not until after a while that have driven it starts going off,at times when on motion the engine will be running but it will not rev until i off and start again. Can anyone please help me out

Nissan Primastar

Hi. When i turn my ignition to the on position, without turning the engine over the glow plug/electric malfunction light stops on longer than it should so when turned off the cooling fan starts up for about 20 seconds. If i start the engine the cooling fan starts up straight away and doesn't go off at all. My engine is warming up as normal but the temperature gauge is not working. I've changed the coolant temperature sensor and tried another ecu but the problem is still their so can anyone tell me what the problem is? Thanks Lee.

Answer this question

David, Berkshire

Nissan Primastar

One month ago the electrics conked out and we got 3 injectors replaced, the 4th had fuzzed and could not be removed. We also replaced the battery. We van was serviced last week (150,000 miles). I understand the fuzzing is a known Nissan design problem (see Watchdog program) which I am getting sorted with the Nissan customer services. The van was serviced last week but on 29/02/16 after 2 hours driving all the electrics conked out- no warning, no daskboard lights. We coasted to the side of the road and restarted OK. After another hour, the electrics conked out again but restarted immediately. Two hours later the electrics went again but the van restarted immediately. Has anyone come across this conking out of electrics before and could it be linked to duff fuel injectors?

Answers

Have just had all 4 injectors replaced all 4 were welded in due to the desine fault. Nissan said they would try to get them out but they would snap and they would have to replace the head cost between £3500 & £4000. Unforchanatly for them I am a trained refrigeration engineer and I know different I resurchand and found a company in London that drove down to Southampton with £20000 worth of injector removal tools not the £75 one Nissan have. They pulled out the 4 injectors, replaced them with brand new genuin injectors and reprogrammed them van has been running great all week cost £1120 they also replaced the holding bolts for £50 Hope this helps if you need the name of the London company let me know Chris Chris from Southampton

Forgot to say the problem is that you only replaced 3 injectors the other one is probably duff and dumping fuel in to the engin this will cause the engin to cut out Chris Chris from Southampton

When the vehicle is parked up, switched off etc about 10 minutes later the radio switches itself on. You can turn it off and it will switch itself on again! Have removed the fuse that's supposed to be allocated for the radio but it's still on. This is puzzling me.

Answer this question

john hewitson, Northumberland

Nissan Primastar

Hi all. Im having a slight problem with starting my van. it used to always start straight away warm or cold. Then i noticed it was taking slightly longer to start and now its taking about 3 seconds or so to kick over. Then when it does start it has a rough idle and when i press the accelerator nothing happens. After about 10 seconds the engine note changes and the accelerator kicks in. it only does this 1st thing in the morning or after being left for a long while. If the van is just stopped for a couple of hours when i pull away and change from 1st to 2nd gear the revs stay right up like i havent come off the accelerator, but it only does this from 1 to 2 and not in any other gear. I would like to get these problems sorted pretty soon (without going to a garage) especially the slight starting problem. If anyone has any info on these problems please help. Thanks, john.

I drive a primastar 52 plate, the brake lights keep failing and I've noticed there is no fuse, it's been to a mechanic a couple of times, last time he changed the plunger on the brake pedal I'm fairly unknowledgeable but it's the one which depresses when I press the brake, I watched it work in the garage when I pressed the brake pedal with out a fuse!! Now it's just stuck on any ideas? Have they messed it all up?

Mine has gone twice. Both times it was the horn in the passenger side front wheelwell. A new horn can be picked op for about £12 and it you can change it by moving the wheel to full lock. But keep in mind; if you van is sign written, it may be better to keep the horn broken! edtheplumber from East Sussex
