Hizit lads,

I've got a 2007 4.2D Normally aspirated. I have absolutely no problems with my motor to date, but i was wondering at what point do i need to start thinking about getting the injectors tested/checked/replaced ? I don;t want something to go wrong with this motor and would rather take precautionary measures.

your thoughts ?

i would say when your car starts blowing black smoke or around 100 000 km, to have them checked atleast

I'm in South Africa, so won't make the commute to Berrime, unfortunately, haha. My vehicle has just gone 115 000 km, and drives the way it did when i got it. NO smoke of any type, Same fuel consumption, same power (or lack thereof) etc etc. As Nissan in South Africa are a bunch of incompetent tits, i'm worried about asking them to check the Injectors.... I've got a full service history with them, but i only do this to keep my resale figure high. I think i'm going to take it to the Land cruiser specialist here in Cape Town, he's the most respected mechanic we know..... i hate this.

Leave well alone - it's a fallacy (instigated by diesel repair shops touting for business) that injectors need cleaning regularly. Only when you start having problems (economy/starting/emissions) do you need to get the injectors checked out. Even then, the use of an injector cleaner added to the fuel and a good hard full rev / low gear blast can work wonders
