I have a Nissan Primera Flare 2006 which I purchased recently. When I open the fuel tank cap out comes a lot of kind of air pressure. I`ve asked a few mechanics if that`s ok or whether there is a problem, some say that there are no issues with the air coming out of the tank, others say that my fuel pump is probably blocked? Could you help?

I get my transmission sensors and all other sensors such as rev sensor, sir sensor from Nissan main agent in Dubai. They will send it by parcel post.

Answer this question

Ryan, South Yorkshire

Nissan Primera

I have just purchased a Nissan Primera and when I hit 2000 rpm it loses power and bunny hops (judders), it runs ok for a while then starts to do it or it does it from the get go. At first we thought it was the air intake valve and this has been replaced but this hasn`t corrected the problem and the engine management light has come on and so we are at a VERY STRESSFUL POINT, so I could do with any help that you can give please?

Answers

Hi Ryan if your check light (eng mngment indicator) is on please get to a garage and ask them to use the consultant tool to diagnose the code. Generally the code indicates the problem, eg: if it`s a sensor issue it will say so, or anything else. The technician will be able to tell the matter based on the indicated code. To me it looks pretty much like the air sensor (somewhat costly matter). dumi from Sri Lanka

Hi Guys, I experienced the same problem recently. When it happens on the road pack off the road for about 15 mins and re strart. If the problem persist scan with a diagnostic tool thats when you have a check engine on your indicator. If your scan shows a code of P1715 it has to do with your speed sensor. Try cleaning the sensor or replacing it . All the best. Evans from Ghana

I have a Nissan Primera I bought recently and I cannot change the instruments from metric to imperial measurements so instead of seeing all the regular info in MPH it is all in Liters per kilometer? I have bought a CD manual for the car but it came with no instructions and I don't want to chance putting it in in-case it messes up my system. All I need is for someone who has maybe had this issue and solved it to tell me!? Someone said I can change it through the settings however even with the instructions and following them to the letter including the pictures of what the display should say it still will not work. My car simply is missing the option in the settings to change from KPH to MPH! It always upon starting asks me to confirm my language e.g. French or English!?!??!? I mean come on Nissan, I am far more likely to want to change from Miles per hour to Kilometers per hour than wake up one day and have suddenly learned french!!! Can anyone assist me? I have recently bought a full CD manual however I cannot figure it out! Thank you in advance for any replies Regards Chris

Hi, i bought a car recently and after getting around 45mpg from the car after a full service and having spent a lot on that and also new discs and recharging the aircon to get rid of any bacteria, i dont use it often at all. All of a sudden my mpg's have dropped to around 35 mpg and i drive like a saint i genuinely do. I wonder what could cause such a drop in mpg's? As i say it was fully serviced, had 2 new brake pads the tyre pressures are all good and the car looks superb however i have noticed this drop in performance? Please also be assured that the last test i did i drove like a saint and mostly motorway in any event and made a point of not turning on the aircon and still a drop of 10 mpg's? This is all after a service and the car was running at 45 mpg's which was still concerning as i do 56mph on the moterway to and from work and do not accelerate hard under any circumstances? Any suggestions? King Regards Chris
