    Gday gents, I've recently changed my thermostat/coolant just for piece of mind in my 1996 rd28t gq patrol. In the process of burping my radiator I've over tightened the bolt and buggered the threads on the upper rad hose, bleed bolt. Pic included Just after the size of said bolt. Bit sus...

    Hey guys, Recently bought a 1999 gu 4.5L auto. The plastic on the top take where the hose connects has become brittle and broken.

    Hello out there fellow Patrol'ers, I am sure this has been discussed to death, but I am struggling to find some definitive answers on the forum. What I have is one of the many GU Patrols with marginal cooling capacity. I am finding that it often ends up getting up to over 115 degrees (measured...

    Hi All, I have a 1997 GQ Patrol with the RD28T engine, she is running very hot at the moment. When I bought the car about 3 years ago she was running a copper radiator out of a 4.2. Last year a belt snapped and got caught in the fan and went into the radiator so I replaced it with an alloy...

    So on the weekend, I was having a play in the Toolangi state forest until I smelt that very familiar coolant smell after a river crossing. F#$% not again! Jump out, have a look under the car. Yep, i've thrown yet another fan blade through my new radiator and coolant is gushing out while i'm in...
  11. Nissan Patrol GQ/Y60 & Ford Maverick
    I have a Nissan GQ 96 RB30 and the plastic radiator that the hose fits around has completely fallen apart (luckily while in the drive way). The plastic has no flex and crumbles in your hand like a biscuit. New radiator time... I heard from a few people that due to movement of the chassis, I...

    Hello fellow patrollers, My problem may be normal and I'm just paranoid, but I have a tb42 carby straight petrol. And recently I replaced water pump and radiator cap then topped up the system. I'll say up front that the water to coolant ratio is high so it is probably 90% water. Now on hot...

    Greetings, I recently needed to replace my radiator in my 1996 Nissan Patrol (Australian, left hand drive). It's a GU 4.2l 4x4 diesel, manual. I only plan on keeping it a few years and bought an aluminum/plastic radiator through the local hardware store (I'm sure I'll regret it later). When I...

    Hi, I've been trying to find information about the best way to cool a TD42 and have found people online doing everything from tapping new water lines into the head to putting bolts through their viscous hub. I recently replaced my radiator and viscous fan with a setup from fenix similar to...
  15. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi all, hoping for some advice. I was working on my ZD30 the other day and ever so slightly leaned on the small water hose at the top of the radiator (the one that goes to the reserve tank) and heard a cracking sound. Seems like the plastic was perished and that the slight lean just snapped it...
