You need to buy a box of super absorbant tissues? Ignoring that the problems with this series of motor are well known and documented, your car is over 10 years old. Anywhere else in the world it would be time to throw it out regardless of the KM its done.Just found this while bouncing around
COMPLAINTS CORNER: NISSAN*PATROL, ZD30, ENGINE - COMPLAINTS CORNER.COM
It would appear that there is some admission to faults in early models sold by nissan but they obviously didnt advertise the fact or contact owners to see if they could help out.... So much for backing what they sell !!! I will not consider another nissan "period" based on the backup of their expensive products ( my local dealers would not even acknowledge they were bad engines). My car is a 2000 model with under 150 000 klms on the clock given that competitors models are pushing over 300 k with only servicing and general wear and tear it really is dismal for such a large company.
Are you really upset with people on this forum and Nissan???Valves for the boost, catch cans, different oil types, failed maf's ,I have followed the grenade help threads since i started visiting this forum. My engine is 10 y/o yes and is at the supposed klms for a melt down ... having said that regular servicing, not flogging it, using good fuel alll done to get me this far when a lot of others havent.If looking at all my options will get me similar results then , it will last me till im not wanting to own a 4wd anymore. Thanks to whitie and tank for the replies.
