Marty, Aberdeenshire

Nissan Primera

Hi! I have a Nissan Primera P10 2.0i SLX (SR20De, 92kW) and for some reason the driver's window does not work at all, anymore. It used to work normally earlier, then it started to work from time to time. I had to move up and down continuously the switch for it to work on either way, but now it doesn't move at all. When I use the switch, I can hear a "knock" sound under the door panel, which is probably the window relay or something like that, so the problem cannot be with the switch. Could the cconnections be just burnt so it doesn't work anymore at all? I think that could be fixed, if I just solder all the connections to the switch and relay...

Answers

I actually managed to get this work by myself :D The faulty one was the window power amplifier/relay/whatever it is called. It had some poor solderings in it, so I re-soldered the pins that were going to the connector, and now it works like a charm! Marty from Aberdeenshire

I have a Nissan Primera L/B manual transmission. I noticed recently that the car does not accelerate above 90km even if I press the acceleration pedal fully. can someone please tell me the cause of this problem?

Answers

It could be mass air flow sensor, try to clean it with some brake cleaning fluid. Or it could be the throttle position sensor and that is a bit more complicated. Marty from Aberdeenshire

Hi I have a wagon Nissan Primera P12 auto we bought it Jap Import low kms 97,000Km Just done 100,000 and head gasket blown Great car AWD.. but it overheated..replaced coolant once this happened possible that head gasket was stuffed before we bought it or did we contribute to its demise. Dealer Nissan was saying that Only Japanese Imports gave them grief. NZ assembled Nissans were fine ,electric window drivers only trouble If we repair headgasket,get everything fxed brake pads ..head expertly repaired Will that be the end of the major trouble or will here be more drama down track Have faith in the theory of f its broke the we can fix it.....rather than sell it to unsuspecting customer at car dealer

I have a squealing noise when I start up from cold. This disappears when the clutch is DEPRESSED. When the car is warm then there is no noise and all is normal. Is this likely to be the clutch release bearing or could it be loose belts? If the latter why would the noise go when the clutch is depressed? Thanks.

Kavneel It could be anything that has something to do with ignition or power distribution. I would first check throttle position sensor, mass air flow sensor and knock sensor. Larry I didn't quite catch what you were saying, but if you have problem with cold car, but not when it's warm, then I would check the knock sensor. Marty from Aberdeenshire

Mass air flow sensor seems to be dirty/faulty. Try to clean it with some brake cleaning fluid. Then probably you need to reset the trouble codes from the fuse box, that is inside the car. If that doesn't help, then I would check the condition of knock sensor. Marty from Aberdeenshire

I like these Nissans and I wanted to buy a second hand one. The mechanic warned me against QR engines that causes a lot of problems. I've seen some 6 cars till now (66-96 000 km) and any of them had a small oil leak around the head gasket - and I'm beginning to think that the mechanic is right about Primera QR engine. Is it so or the problem is just accidental and I have good chances to find a good reliable Primera? Is QR engine really having problems? Is it why Nissan has stopped producing them in 2007?
