Answer this question

Paul, Nigeria

Nissan Primera

My car consumes a lot of fuel. In fact, used 110 liters of fuel for a 400km distance last week. I gave the car to my mechanic and he damaged so many things and replaced them with odd ones. 1. The sensor accelerator that came with the car was damaged and he replaced it with cable. 2. He is also changed the vehicle brainbox and replaced it with a model of BrainBox that has free code when he lost the key to the car. Most time, when I start the car in the morning, black smoke usually comes out from the exhaust. Please kindly assist me with useful information as I am fed with the vehicle's excessive consumption of fuel. Thanks.

Nissan Primera

Good Morning Sir/Madam, I am David by name and a Nigerian. I bought a Nissan primera 1999 model hatchback, only to discover that the automatic gear box does not change when I accelerate the car thereby stressing the engine the more. My question now, is that what can I do to resolve the issue. Some persons are advising me to work the gear box while others are telling me to replace the gear box with a new one. Please advise. Thank you.

Answers

This often happens when the battery in the fob is low and needs changing. if you have a setup that allows you to drive the car with keys in your pocket, sometimes you need to use the key in the ignition... try using the key in the ignition and see if it works.. if it does then it's prob battery in the fob.. it happens on my x-trail R Evans from Caerphilly

Answer this question

anton muller, South Africa

Nissan Primera

I am trying to replace the gearbox oil.I have managed to drain the oil. The filler plug on the side is very tight.I have tried a 3/8 square spanner,the hole is 1mm bigger than the 3/8. I am scared of damaging the hole.Any suggestions?

Answers

I wouldn't risk using that, they are prone to being super tight, I broke 3 tools that were the perfect size trying to open them. Still never got the filler undone, only other way to get the oil in is through the top, on top is a plastic piece with 1 bolt in I believe, it's awkward as hell but undo the bolt, carefully pry around the edge till the cap pops off then fill it from there, best of luck Marc from Kent

P12 1.8 primere 56 reg. Using lots of oil 1litre every 650 miles no smoke drives fine. Then misfire cars juddering. Compression test shows. 175 175 150 70. How do I fix it?

Answers

I'm only guessing, I'm having a similar problem. The seal behind the flywheel could be leaking oil in to the bell housing and splashing the clutch with oil, so your misfire could be intermittent clutch slip. See if it misfires whilst in neutral. Let me know how you get on and if you get a better answe Marc from Kent

Answer this question

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.
