  2. Well, that might be possible(mine primer button is rock solid after several hours of engine being off). Fuel delivery system on my car is heavily modified and I'm not 100% sure that could also influence it. Fuel system on ZD30 seems self priming and as such will have a pressure drop once the engine stops. What the residual pressure if any is left I'm not sure. On fully closed fuel injection systems running at around 150 to 200 kPa delivery pressure the left over is about 50 kPa because fuel lift pump has non return valve built in to retain the residual pressure. The trend on self bleeding
  3. @Rumcajs So no air bubbles at all which is good but why won't my primer stay firm even after starting the car and turning off after idling for 2 minutes, the primer takes another 3-4 pumps to go firm again? Maybe the primer is shot? Ah okay I'll have a look at creating a log later when I go around the block!
  4. I buy all my filters from Western filters in Sydney. CrD filter kits
  5. G'day, I haven't heard of filter brands like Osk before, but I caution you with too cheap filters..... Indeed I'd be looking at water separator in that case. 3" exhaust on CrD should be OK however a lot of people use 2.75" exhaust with very good result indeed better because 3" appears to be too big to maintain correct back pressure. Beaudesert does make the entire set. ===> https://beauexhausts.com.au/product/patrol-gu-3l-exhaust/ The only issues with CrD is when people attempt to block EGR... causes MIL to come on. Regards
  6. That hose look clear so to me it doesn't have an issue with air in the fuel. However those ICV% are very low. At idle it should be around 50% as a minimum. Mine has around 63% with additional lift pump. ECU Talk creates log of your gauges as A CSV file is a Comma Separated Values file. All CSV files are plain text files, can contain numbers and letters only, and structure the data contained within them in a tabular, or table, form. I open mine in LibreOffice spread sheet to have nice collums. See here ==> https://www.ecutalk.com.au/ecutalk.aspx The key is to select only
  7. I've also tried to do a log file like you said but when I open it on Notepad, I don't see any values correlating to the data that I was logging for the sensors I chose. How do I create a log and where do I find it/open it so I can see all the values? Cheers
  8. @Rumcajs I managed to finally get some clear 10mm hose to see if I can see any air going to the IP and relate to the ICV% and this is what I found. **Can't upload videos here at the moment. Video 1: idling (after 3 days of not starting it); A couple of little bubbles in the line to IP but then was all just diesel flowing through, watched it for about a minute and no bubbles. ICV% was at 34-38%. Video 2: holding revs @ 2000prm correlating to ICV% values; Still no air that I can visually see but after turning the car off the p
  9. There is one other thing I would like advice on. My last Patrol was a 2006 3L pre CRD. Towing, it was very sluggish, it had the standard exhaust. Following the advice I received I put a 3" system on and noted a big difference in both fuel economy and power. My new Patrol is 2009 GUVl CRD. I am not sure if a modified exhaust system is ok. Cheers. Bob.
  10. Hi. Many thanks for the very informative reply, the Patrol has only done 186,000km so looking forward to a long relationship with her. I have been searching for a good filter kit to do my own simple maintenance, a brand that has come up is Osk. Do you by chance have an opinion? I feel that Ryco are probably what I should be using but Osk are a cheaper version and doing 5,000km oil changes, maybe they are ok to use. Cheers. Bob
  11. Oil pressures look fine, however which model year is yours? If it is 2007 onwards then ECM is measuring the actual oil pressure from RHS unit. Oil Pressure is monitored via the ECM with the utilisation of an Oil Pressure Sensor which is located at the RH rear of the engine. In addition to the Oil Pressure Sensor there is an Oil Pressure Switch located at the LH front of the engine, above the oil filter. This switch will ground & illuminate the ‘red oil can’ warning light when there is close to 0 Oil Pressure. The above mentioned Oil Pressure SENSOR
  12. Hello, I agree, just gauges would be enough so you're aware what is going on. CrD uses different ECM controls therefore playing around with various aspects of insufficient controls from previous model is probably pointless. But I'd check how does glow circuit behave and if it does the same silly behaviour as in Di I'd fit extra timer. Having additional means of seeing coolant temp (via Scangauge) if possible is also a bonus. EGR block is also problematic on CrD models. In any case fitting boost control could improve performance. Regards
  13. Hello to all, I am a new member, just purchased my 3rd Patrol. This NADS conversion, is it also nessesary for a 2009 version? My mechanic has suggested the gauges but not the rest, what are your thoughts? Regards. Bob.
  14. I have just purchased a 2009 Patrol wagon.. 3l turbo manual. Seeking guidance on where and what brand to buy. Filters, oils. I will be doing the oil and fuel filters myself. Any help would be great. Gently please, new member. Regards. Bob
  15. Hi all - I'm trying to find out the expected oil pressure on a 3.0TD engine. My oil light came on the other day and since then I've replaced the oil sensor near the turbo and oil resistor in the cab. I'm waiting on the correct oil sensor near the starter to arrive. Despite changing the above and unplugging the sensor near the starter, the oil light still lights up once the engine is running. I've just put the oil pressure gauge on the top sensor unit bear the turbo and the readings I'm getting are: Idle = 85/90 PSI or 6 Bar Rev to 2,000 = 100 PSI or 7 bar Rev

    It would have to go on the outside of the Rad' support panel
  17. Hi - I’m trying to figure out if my 2003 GR (U.K. 3.0 model) has two oil sensors on the engine. I can only find the one near the turbo. I’ve read that the oil resistor could be behind the diff lock switch in the cab, but reading the above I wondered if this actually exists for this model? Thanks guys
  18. Read my previous post fully, then search Dronus4x4 posts about NADS on this forum and on patrol4x4.com as well as GU2 user archives and posts about external lift pump there. VP44 can suck its own fuel from the fuel tank however Bosch made provision for external supply pump (lift) in its reference design as vane type supply pumping section inside the injection pump is very inefficient at lower RPM under heavy load. As for that "o" ring there is no harm putting it there but most Patrols lost their on first filter service as dumb mechanics don't pay attention and Nissan also claims i
  19. Ah yes, the higher reading is due to a 3" straight through exhaust and the EGR blocked off which I read on another thread that 2.15v is okay on idle however; I did notice it linearly got to 4v around 3000-3500rpm while revving and watching the voltage. I do believe I have air in the system from the "3rd small o-ring" at the fuel filter primer because the fuel filter was replaced last month and I think they may have lost or forgotten that o-ring as the primer doesn't stay hard over a few hours or overnight and I have to prime it 3 times before it goes fully firm and I can start it so I'm t
  20. Hello, Finally you're cooking with gas..... The most important gauges are: RPM, Water temp, Battery V, Throttle V or %, Injection Timing % (duty cycle), Air flow, Barometer, Fuel Temp, VNT Turbo %. MAF Voltage seems a little higher for idle.... If Injection Timing % is bellow 40% you have air in the system or problem with fuel. Normal operation around 50-70%. So in yours, barely reaching 41% at idle yes you have problem with fuel delivery. add external lift pump and you will find the leak quickly. However you MUST carry out SPILL/OVERFLOW LINE modification oth
  21. So I just got my ECUTalk cable today and these are my readings on first start up of the day 26°c outside. Do these readings look okay so far @Rumcajs? Am yet to diagnose my glow plugs.
  22. Thankyou very much for your helpful information! I will check them tomorrow and look at doing the timer mod with ceramic glow plugs to prolong the life and not have to worry for a very long time 😁 So how would I go about bleeding the air properly from the fuel system? Have I been doing it right in priming while cranking and while the engine idles? I don't see a bleed screw or anything to bleed the air to the upmost part of it's path so I'm not sure how to do it correctly if you can help with that thankyou. Feel like I'm slowly getting to the bottom of things by process of elimination
  23. Rumcajs


    Well how far away? As long as it is in the engine bay you should be OK.
  24. With such temps in the morning I'm sure glow plugs are not up to the job anymore.... You will need to check resistance accross the positive terminal of the glow plugs and its body (or nearest ground). So you will have to remove intercooler and buzz bar. If you find that values are out that means removing them and inspect visually if the tips are still there. Metal glow plugs are cheaper but wear out very quickly about 20k so the timer mod is absolutely essential indeed it is in any case. The stupidity of glowing for 5 mins. Ceramic tips glow plugs last longer 100k but are

    Hi all, I have a 2012 ZD30 that I need to put a catch can, problem is where. With a duel battery and other after market electrics, the usual spots aren't available. Is distance an issue if I mount it further away from the engine?
  26. If I connect the clear hose and I see bubbles, how would I remove them from the system? I have tried priming while cranking and also primed when the engine started for about 2 minutes, think I did 200 pumps in that time. Ah okay how would I check the glow plugs? I did spray the connector to them and was alot of dust and dry mud inside and the metal line that connects them all doesn't look great either! If I am to replace them do I need the ceramic tip ones? I want to do the timer mod on them also and use the metal ones if they hold up better/longer. It's usually around 6-7°c on avera
