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?

Hi, I have just bought a 2001 Nissan Primera station wagon. The issue I have is that the fan comes on immediately as soon as I start the car and the centre console doesn't control the fan speed. I am just wanting to know how this may possibly be fixed. It is also a jap import so the controls are in Japanese, just to make it more interesting.

Check the radeator fan as it may have been bypassed so the fan stays on some times people do this if the thermostat is faulty and they can not find the fault. James Mc Closkey from Greater Manchester

Hi, my Nissan seems to drive around side roads fine (30-40mph). But if I go onto a dual cw,, I really struggle to get from 40mph to 60mph, car slowly builds up speed with slow rpm increase, upto 6krpm almost red line, then changes gear, and same again from 60 to 80 etc, forget overtaking.... its impossible, I creep past milimeter by milimeter, I could open my window, and have a chat with the person I'm overtaking, while my foot is to the floor. if I see a hill (not even major steep), I have to build up speed before I hit it, or it struggles. kickdown seems to have disappeared.

Answers

Advantages of removing your thermostat is the coolant will directly rotates from the radiator to your engine and back and reduces heat to your engine, but the disadvantages it will increase your fuel consumption and if you are using computerized cars I preferred not to remove your thermostat.. This works the same with directing your fun without sensor but it will blow your fun motor as it works 24hrs.. Samson Kauli from Solomon Islands

i would suggest you check your throttle fuse. most modern cars dont use a cabble for the throttle but an actuator. if the actuator fuse is blown the revs wont rise. experienced this with a different car. i changed e battery and am sure in e process the fuse blew. replacing the fuse did the trick hope it works Brilliang from Zimbabwe
