  1. 2012 - Early 2013 timing chain failures

    Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    Looks like Nissan kept quiet about it here in Australia.:mad:

    Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    Ok, The Infinity 2011-2013 M56 had the VK56VD engine and it looks like it was included in the Recall for the timing chain problem. The Infinity Q70 was 2014 onwards so not applicable. I found this out by doing a little research on Wiki. Nothing concrete but may worth digging a bit more. See how...

    Another potential failure... currently being diagnosed by Nissan. Nov 2012 0000193 96,000kms.

    Some interesting reading on a US Infiniti forum about the recall they had. https://forums.nicoclub.com/official-2011-13-m56-q70-5-6l-timing-chain-recall-discussion-t608895.html

    Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    Good luck with the ACCC, I mean that sincerely too. There's another concerned owner on FB with a Dec 2012 build that's beginning to make an unusual noise. It's only done 57,000 kms. The build number is 000576, which makes it the earliest on my list, if it does turn out for the worst. The noise...

    Hi Rad78, thanks for sharing your story. What a shame it’s come to this. You must be p’d off and I don’t blame you. If only they’d investigated the problem more thoroughly when it first arose. That goes to show that the engine has suffered from the metal debris from the Oiler jets inside it...
  7. 2012 - Early 2013 timing chain failures

    Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    PatrolWA... the repair can be done with the engine still in the vehicle. Still a major job though. As for consistencies in use or service routines, I have little info on this. I have heard of failures despite the engines being serviced on time. I don’t think towing has any bearing on chain life...

    Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    Hi PatrolWA , I’m not aware of any actual reports to Fair Trading. People have threatened to go through Fair Trading and then came to agreements with Nissan. These agreements vary from sharing the cost of repair up to Nissan wearing the full cost. The timing chains are definitely not a...

    The chains in the photo... The top one is the old style and the new, more robust chain on the bottom.

    Nissan Y62 Patrol, Armada & Infiniti QX80
    G'day folks, I'm starting this thread to discuss, but more importantly, collect data on the premature timing chain failures which are apparent in the early series one aussie Y62 patrols. The issue seems to be limited to the pre March 2013 build vehicles (all with the VK56VD engines), typically...

    Info share from the FB site, Y62 Patrol modified action. JD from the US suggests (in the Amanda), one or more injectors can fail which causes excessively rich mixtures. A known problem by Nissan who refuse to acknowledge that there may be an issue. Any more info or experience on this?

    Wow, this thread has gone off the rails.... from about post 30!

    Jump on one of the FB sites... a search of your query there will get quicker response. Aussie Patrol Y62, Y62 patrol Owners Australia or Y62 Patrol Modified Action. Pacemaker headers with a Unichip and/or custom tune/remap. Do both full exhaust and tune to get the best out of it. And get...

    I suggest giving it a tune by someone who knows these engines. Unichip are good as well. After watching Dave’s video, have a read of the comments from Ian Pinker, great info there. https://youtu.be/rkQov-yk_08
  16. Tyres 265 or 285

    Is that relating to tyre diameter or width as well?

    Sounds like you are going through the same process as just I did recently. Very similar driving/towing habits to me. I only got 40K kms out of my originals. I thank my 2.5T van and poor front wheel alignment in the early days for that. Lack of regular tyre rotation contributed to poor wear as...

    That trailing zero is the problem. That's weird if its adding it by itself?? To confirm...EOT TXD : zero,7E,zero,223,zero,7A RXF : C462, zero, 53, zero, 767A RXD : 3, double zero, 8 MTH : triple zero, 1, triple zero, 1FFCE

    There has been some discussion in other FB groups around premature failing of catalytic coverters in some Y62's. I don't feel its a common issue but nevertheless its one that has popped up which raises flags to some Y62 owners and potential buyers alike. There's not a great deal of info on why...
