Exclamation ARCHIVES TECHNICAL ZD30CRD: TechTalk/Mods/Maint/Gen Info. READ DI INFO AS WELL

WIP

The links to threads and web pages enclosed within contain valuable information for ZD30 CRD owners both new and old. We will be adding information as it becomes available. Some of the threads may have their roots in the main GU/GR section or the DI Subsection, so additions to those threads will not necessarily show up in this subsection.

Please read the relevant information carefully before posting a new thread in the subsection, we are trying to keep it as clear and simple as possible so as to deliver quality, useful information to prolong the life of your vehicle.

NEWBIES PLEASE NOTE
Firstly, we encourage you to search for inormation before posting a question, this helps with reducing repeat questions, a common problem. Secondly, to help us help you, please experiment with your signature line and put in your Patrol model, engine and year plus any defining info you think may help. Also under your user name put in a general area for where you live, this helps us to recommend some services to you without the need for extra posts.

General Tech Talk

The ZD30 Bible The Bible download is in post 1, new 2.5 version, choice of Colour or B&W

Lubrication specifications. See post 1 for links and further info.

http://www.nissanpatrol.com.au/ZD30-CRD-2008-2.pdf Nissan Learning Academy doc for the CRD engine, lot of good info.

EGT Survey CRD The template for putting in info is at the bottom of post #1, using the template makes it much easier to review and summarise the data at a later date.

ThermoGuard Instruments A general rundown on the in's and out's of the Diesel engine.

Diesel Engine Smoke Explained Basic reasons for why a diesel engine will produce different colour smoke, including a reference chart.

Oils ainít Oils Quite an in depth look at engine oils, some very good info, if you take the time to read the thread, like a lot of threads the good info can be buried in the banter.

http://www.patrol4x4.com/forum/nissa...-way-up-28679/ The eternal debate about which way the air filter is fitted, in short... Lip Seal Down, reasons contained within.

Garrett | FAQ Garret page with some good base info.

VNT15-Turbo Not the same turbo we use but similar, an interesting read of the strip down and how it works for the uninitiated and new members. There is an interesting animation of the NGV/VNT operation at the end.

http://www.turbo.com.sg/e-newsVNT%20...20Feb%2008.pdf
http://www.turbo.com.sg/e-news/Garre...%20buletin.pdf
Garret VNT bulletins, for your information only, read and make of this what you will.

exhaust heat shield removal problem The funny story of one mans 3 hours of frustration in trying to budge a heat shield, then with encouragement from the crew it fell off much to his surprise.

Diesel Common Rail Injection Facts 2 - YouTube A short animation on general Common Rail Injection principles.

Off-Road Navigation Although not specifically something for a ZD30 this is an interesting read on the what, why, how of off road navigation from Ray.

Modification

Got a ZD30 CRD? Here are some recommendations A run down of the basic mods for the CRD.

What Engine Mods Should I do to My 08 CRD This thread has the potential to grow to a worthwhile conclusion, with careful thought and scrutiny.

Water injection for ZD30 or diesel who's done it An interesting look at Water/Meth Injection, with some great input from a Philippines member, Dvldoc, culminating with an install and feedback by Chaz, something I am definitely looking at. I see no reason why this could not apply to the CRD as well.

Maintenance

Coolant Change. Coolant change can and has lead to significant problems for some of our members, this gives some ideas, and outlines the danger areas.

MAF Cleaning A very important part of maintenance on a ZD30, many of us clean the MAF at each 10,000 service interval.

Belt Tensioner Advice. Belt tensioner failure is quite common when a lot of mud and water is played in. (Just ask Deccers).

http://www.patrol4x4.com/forum/nissa...57/index3.html A general discussion on oil changes, how much is used, circumstances when draining the oil, brand of oils and weights, change intervals for different modifications, a good enlightening read in addition to the "Oils ain't Oils" thread above.

http://www.patrol4x4.com/forum/nissa...g-guide-94943/ TPS Cleaning method

http://www.patrol4x4.com/forum/nissa...estion-112217/ Good info.

General Information

CRD and Bad Fuel Economy - DISCUSSION THREAD The CRD engine seems to have a very wide band of fuel economy within its many owners, although a tough read there is a lot of info here.

CRD and Good Fuel Economy - DISCUSSION THREAD The other side of the story....

CRD - Age and Kilometres Life and Times of a CRD.
