    Nissan 2005 Patrol wagon

    G'day, Every logical explanations points to not being the air cleaner or fuel filter, however I do recommend to inspect and change as contaminated air cleaner will foul MAF sensor and contaminated fuel filter will ruin the fuel system and indeed ZD30 of 2005 and earlier vintage has a very weak and fragile injection pump which doesn't tolerate such issue very well and for long. So, if the engine doesn't seem to labor or appears under heavy load like after the fault occurs (hence how it freely revs up stationary) we can discount exhaust blockage (sometimes exhaust catalyst can be faulty and as it heats up it can collapse and cause exhaust restriction which is usually manifested by lack of power and a lots of black smoke. But that wouldn't clear after 1 minute engine off scenario either.... However to be able to actually do any diagnosing you do need to see what the engine is doing, e.g turbo boost at the point of failure, engine sensors reading (MAF voltages vs RPM vs TPS position) So in the case of turbo boost there is clear relationship between power output, smoke output so if the values don't support healthy operation one can start pin point the probable cause. Because your vehicle is stock it will be very difficult without an access to engine telematics to ascertain anything. The only thing you can do is to check under the hood when stationary and even then only visual checks. This what I would do if it was happening to mine, and I do have ability to read engine sensors on the fly and have extra boost gauge and exhaust gas temperature probe and gauge installed. Using ECU Talk LCD interface I would scan boost pressure and MAF voltage vs TPS% and turbo actuator% and injection pump timing solenoid% while also observing EGT temps. Low boost will increase EGTs under heavier load and I will also be able to see MAF voltages and be able to deduce if there is an issue with either system. As an example faulty MAF signalling can affect the way ECU controls fuelling and that in effect can cause smoke, lack of power etc. I would change air and fuel filters, run engine at the idle when there is no issue and check the VGT actuator (turbo) is fully up and re-check it again when the failure occurs ( this could indicate that either the control system is malfunctioning, or there is vacuum leak under the specific conditions.) I would check and also disable either temporarily or permanently the intake swirl control circuit just in case it accidentally jams closed restricting the intake (which can have the effect you're experiencing.) Another step I'd do would be to disable EGR circuit to see if that is playing up however that opens up another can of worms for those who don't grasp the concept. Faulty EGR valve which fails to close intermittently can cause similar symptoms you are experiencing. Basically something is interfering with proper way the engine air induction, fuel quantity and exhaust extraction is functioning. It could be either wrong input causing wrong output (or bullchit in bullchit out) or intermittent failure of control circuit for either of those systems. Regards

    Okay, each to their own..... technical facts are that water to air inter-cooling is not as efficient as air to air systems. Unless you are planning completely self closed system independent of engine cooling system where the cooling liquid medium is also something else then water the air to air system is better. Pure fact is that inter-cooling or heat exchanging via engine coolant will always stop at engine operating temperature in this case 87°C to 89°C vs air inter-cooling which at its worst will be usually at 20°C above ambient air temperature so even in the extreme outback scenario of 50°C ambient air temperature the air intake temperature is at 70°C still less then it would be with other application. The key is the lower the temperature of incoming air the more dense it is therefore more oxygen is available to the engine combustion process. In most if not all automotive applications the water inter-cooling is done because either air to air system is not possible or impractical or as a cheaper arrangement to improve on no inter-cooling at all. That is however not always the case indeed air to air and water to air can complement each other too subject to non standard or more complex turbo charging systems like sequential multi turbos systems for example. It is uncommon to switch from air to air systems to water to air systems unless there is a specific reasoning and or additional changes are made for the applications. Since ZD30 is already inter-cooled even though it is TMIC (Top Mounted Inter Cooler) which has it own issues with heat soak switching to engine coolant based inter-cooling seems like a backward step. Going FMIC (Front Mounted Inter Cooler) under specific set of circumstances is the improvement. Unless of course you are planning something very special but given you mention the cost of $100, it is very unlikely though do tell us what is the system like. The best bet would be to combine the two perhaps. Regards

    It isn't waste my $$$. It's cost 100$ on aliexpress.com. I must fit new water radiator and little electric water pump. And as i know it is much more efficient then air to air intercooler. My friend fit water to air intercooler on OM606 and it's working very well.

    Nissan 2005 Patrol wagon

    Good morning Thank you for replying so quickly. You make a good point about fuell over flowing. After about 45 min driving she looses power up to the point where I have to pull over and then in neutral she will get to up to close 5000 revs but with black smoke. If I then turn her off and let her sit for a minute or so she comes good again. Only to play up later again. So it makes sense about what you said about the system resetting itself. I should actually change fuell and air filters as they are long overdue. Can it be that? Bear with me please as I'm a electrician and not a mechanic so I'm limited in that regard. I can help myself with the basic to middle of the road stuff but I'm no good after that. And don't have any engine mods just a electric brake for towing heavy stuff. So to sum up: After driving for about 45 min - 1 hour she loose power and becomes very lethargic. Then I have to pull over. In neutral she gets close to 5000 revs but lot of black smoke. I turn her of and wait a minute or two. Then she goes again but +-45 later same thing happens again. Thanks for your help so far. Regards Ben

    G'day Don't waste your $$$ on that exercise. Water to air intercooling is a massive compromise and not very efficient one either. You will be much better off in improving existing air to air intercooling minus less hassles with coolant pipes etc. Regards

    New keys

    Ni$$an $tealers can't do that! That they were unable to do so is astounding. Now I'm not sure what further details you require but I know that system will not enter in to programming mode unless all circuitry is correct. However I don't have 2008 model revision available so I can only speculate in this case. The wiring diagrams for Patrols are the nightmares because of so many revisions and changes on the fly they make. I will try to dig for more info so bear with me. Cheers

    Nissan 2005 Patrol wagon

    G'day, welcome to the forum. The black smoke is usually a symptom of overfuelling. You can start with the basics, air cleaner, fuel filter etc. This seems/appears to be something related to engine sensors or and ECUs as when you cycle power off everything resets. Are there any error codes/MIL flashing when that happens? Do you have themeans of seeing engine sensors output?e.g. via ECU Talk software and interface cable? I'm being tempted to suggest perhaps MAF sensor is playing up.... Anyway as a part of investigating you could try When it happens don't turn the key off but check if you can at stationary and engine still running use acc pedal to run up max RPM e.g. floor it to see what happens. Also what is the lack of power demonstrating as? No revs, lack of available throttle response or just lazy going? Also what engine mods if any do you have? Regards
  10. Good morning to all smart Nissan drivers. I have a 2005 Nissan patrol, 3l turbo diesel wagon. After about 40-45 minutes of driving it looses power with a lot of black smoke coming out of the exhaust. Then if I turn the engine off and let it sit for a few minutes it goes again only for the process to repeat itself. Funny enough that it doesn't seem to affect the revs on the engine when it does this. Any ideas please. Thank you

    New keys

    Hi Rumcajs, I’m currently having exact same problem. Bought a 2008 Nissan Patrol a few months back with a dodge remote and only one key. Purchased a new key with fob from locksmith they were able to program the chip to get both keys starting the car but have been unsuccessful in getting car into program mode to set up keyless entry. Also put car into Nissan dealership who were also unable to program the keyless entry. At a loss as I have $200 key now that starts the car but does nothing else. Im far from mechanically minded but judging from your diagrams above I just need to go through and test all the wires/connections with a multi meter and find circuit M133? The beeping happens when the key is in ignition with door open so I was also wondering if you could supple further details on how to hack the multi remote signals. Central locking also works fine. Cheers,

    Gq patrol rb30

    Hey guys new to this page since i dont have fb thought this would be my best bet to get some info. So i have a rb30 pootroll she has just done the head gasket i have a spare motor im throwing in but don't know how long it will last etha so my plan is to rebuild my motor and turbo it my question the people that have done this can get some info please as on what i will need to do what the best parts will be and a rough cost on it all any help would be great cheers fellas

    Bullbar inquiry?

    As far as I know the only issue is SRS airbag incompability so if the utes don't have those then you might want to research it further. otherwise it fits. Regards
  15. G'day, I know it sounds obvious but that means you still have air in the system. Pressure bleeding the system doesn't always work OK. As an exercise try loosening each bleed nipple slightly and watch for air bubbles. Sometimes the good all fashioned manual bleeding is needed too, in correct order of course (starting from nearest cylinder to master). If your vehicle has load sensing valve make sure it is set to max opening as well before attempting to bleed the system. I use vacuum method (own vacuum tester/gun) and finish of with manual bleeding with helper person pumping the pedal. Never had issues this way. Regards
  16. fitted new drums and wheel clyinders to rear, new pads to frount adjusted brakes, new master clyinder, pressure bleed all wheels and cant get more than qtr of brake pedal!!!!! any help out there would love to here, this is driving me up the wall

    Bullbar inquiry?

    Evening all i just wanted to find out if someone has the knowledge on weather or not a bull bar off a 2010 gu patrol ute would bit on a 2006 series 4 wagon, they seem to have exactly the same front end with same flares and grill ect? company i work for has around 15 utes sitting in the yard collecting dust and being robbed of parts and was looking at swaping my alloy bar for a steel one cheers Beau

    Evidence of airbag change?

    Thanks for your informative response Rumcajs, while I dont plan to have have the airbag go off anyway, I will ask Nissan Australia just to be sure. Not worried about blowing a hole in me but I wouldnt want my missus to cop a faceful of shrapnel, no matter how small the chance of it occuring is.

    Evidence of airbag change?

    G'day Unless, they've given you a paperwork or afixed recall sticker then you can't tell unless you pull the SRS airbag detonator out and inspect its serial/part numbers or actually witnessed it being fitted ( I did ).There should be an invoice generated for Nissan Australia by the dealer indeed Nissan will only supply enough for the vehicles listed as coming under the dealers system. So you could contact Nissan Australia directly to obtain the information about your vehicle as they must keep that transaction for ACC. In any case this airbag re-call is a fraud. Takata Inc needs to supply around 40 to 80 million additional unit for vehicles around the world which some of them are not even being produced anymore on top of actually supplying/fullfilling existing contracts to produce them for current productions of vehicles. To understand what is going on, the Japanese invented manufacturing system like JIT (Just in Time) which means they mostly don't produce anything extra for the stores to keep. This means that lead times for extra units are very long..... That can't be done in ones lifetime. Most dealers will replace the units "like for like" as they have nothing else supplied to them. Probably only difference will be with the so called Alpha series airbags where/if the updates can be made or they can be superceded by later units. If your Nissan is 2000-2003 model then do ensure they updated the SRS airbag detonator/entire unit to later version. If they ask me to come again I'll cut the wires to that shyte myself. Regards
