  1. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Coming onto an exit ramp on the freeway exhilarating slowly up to about 90 ks and there was a quiet clunk and lost all power had grey smoke pouring out tabak, lost that much power that it was 99.99 disabled, I had a look under the engine and there was oil at the back spray everywhere around the...
  2. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Hi everyone, just recently purchased a 2003 Y61 zd30 non runner, the previous owner striped the engine due to a pump problem and left it all in the back. So I thought I’d get another engine rather than re building, I got another 2nd hand engine and fitted it and running but it’s very sluggish...

  4. 3 Litre ZD30 CRD Engine
    ok, so im looking at tyre size on my y61 wagon patrol (zd30 crd 2012) and I’m tossing between either 33’s or 35’s on her, i know 35’s aren’t legal and need a lot more modifying to make them work on the car..but what will I need to change (in the smallest ways possible) to make it work? thanks in...
  5. 3 Litre ZD30 CRD Engine
    Hey guys so I have had this issue with my 2011 Gu patrol zd30 for months now. At the back on injector 4 it is leaking diesel from somewhere I've been told it's fuel lines ( I have replaced all the lines including hard lines and rail) as soon as I start the engine it leaks around from the back...

    Hey guys, recently just came around a whining noise in my car when accelerating when it’s cold but when it’s warm it doesn’t, however we have changed wastegate actuator, thinking it’s alternator because my car randomly turned stalled other day, however any of you guys came across this sound? Cheers

    Gday guys! First time poster here. I have a 2004 Patrol with a ZD30. My day of success with her has just run out. Iv replaced the battery and alternator today which went well. After testing it out and going for a drive, I pulled off the big plastic cover from the intercooler and found two...
  8. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Well, I’ve got a leaking fuel line that goes into the rail of my ZD30 Ute, it’s leaking out a bit, would the loss of pressure cause my car not to start or would it be something else broken?
  9. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Hi!! New to the 4WD part of life. I keep periodically getting an error code on long trips that kills some power. Fix, turn the car off then back on again. Error code gone. I would like to have the ability to scan at the time and see what is happening. I understand that OBD2 ports do not...
  10. Nissan Patrol GU/GR Y61
    Hi guys, New to the forum, look forward to any advice I can get! Been searching a while and haven’t found much info on this. I have a 2004 3.0 litre wagon, with standard rear HG43 diff. I’ve blown this one and looking at a factory locked diff out of a 2012 3.0 litre. My question is - is...
  11. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Hey so I'm getting this really weird humming noise on the patrol when at 110kph. It's almost like a fog horn sound and seems to be coming from the passanger side engine bay. Although it's a humming/horn noise, it does kind of sound like some sort of high pitched metal on metal vibration noise...

    Hey all! Been patrolling the forum for a couple months, just bought my first 4x4. 2000 gu wagon zd30 DI. Of course I had to straight pipe her. She has a playtime auto 3 inch, with a hot dog. now, I’m no tuner, but after install, the car feels less powerful, and is throwing a heap of soot out...

    Hey all, My belt slips a little when i first start the car when the revs go over about 1500, for about 5 mins of driving, after that its all good. i have replaced the tensioner pulley and belt (genuine) only about 2 weeks ago, before replacement it was squealing the whole time so obviously its...
  14. Buying a Nissan Patrol
    Hello, Been told zd30s crd aren’t worth the purchase. I’m thinking of getting a 2007 crd with 192KMs with dalves valve already equipped and gauges. Is it worth getting the car? as i’ve heard a few problems with them. What’re your zd30s like? Cheers

    So just done a td42ti swap in my 05 patrol. Im running a dakota SGI-100BT. I have the yellow and black wire (pin5) in the output and the tacho works when the unit does the 2000rpm test. My problem is that I've tried pin5 from the ecu, straight into the input of the unit and it doesn't work...
  16. 3 Litre ZD30 CRD Engine
    Hi guys, I'm pretty new to it, what is entailed with changing out the intercooler for a better one? Is it as easy as taking off the cover, removing the hoses and bolts holding down the old intercooler, then reversing the process with the new one? There aren't any oils or anything inside that...

  18. 3 Litre ZD30 CRD Engine
    Does anyone know if an exhaust from a ZD30 wagon will fit to a ZD30 leaf ute? Worst comes to worst it doesnt have to fit all the way, even if the mounts are the same to the back of the cab I can just dump the exhaust there.
  19. 3 Litre ZD30 DI Engine
    Has annyone thought abouth using the vacuum solenoid as a "boost controller" solenoid like you would see on a 2 port wastegate actuator in conjunction with a 3 valve solenoid? I havn't seen the internals of the vacuum solenoid but they opperate in a simmular way. I also don't know if its...

    Well, better late then never. I've already done the majority of work to my 'troll, but there are always mods and projects on the go, and I figured i'd document the remaining work to be done on her. See my showcase for a list of what I've already accomplished. So I'm tired of going through the...
