  2. Hello, Everything suggests that either you had an issue with fuel filter, or it is sucking air somewhere or indeed injection pump is failing. To see if IP is failing and self report visit diesel fuel injection specialist to connect scanner directly to IP there might be some codes in the pump ECU shedding some llight on the issue. If this happens when engine is warm only the chances are it is the pump. The ZD30 and their VP44 injection pumps are notorious for having issues with fuel delivery from the fuel tank as well so you could substitute clear hose from filter housing to pump and observe for presence of air in the line which indicates some of the problems described. Regards
  3. Hi all, everything was ok until pulled up for 1 hour, came back to car and winds over but won't start. Check all fuses and priming pump has is hard, has fuel pressure, half a tank of fuel. Got towed to Racq workshop, get off tow truck and engine started but on high rpm start running really rough, misfire, diesel knock, white smoke then shut down, next couple starts stall while idling. Mechanic suspect fuel pump issue, unable connect scanner, try to flash codes from ecm but only 55 means no faults. Unable to fix in next 24hours also towed to my place. Charged battery up, started engine and same happened runs funny, lots of white smoke and engine stalls, no check engine light on. Removed fuel filter housing to drain fuel from it but no water present. Refit, bleed fuel system, started engine and runs good, no more issues however don't want drive because to me isn't fix. Any advice what could be a problem? It's pump failing? Thought about dodgy fuel but last time filled Bp standard diesel and done 300kilometers before issue started diesel or Puma premium. Forgot mention bought 4wd 2 years ago and beforehand had engine swap because pump failed in original engine. Second engine had 175k while was installed. Cheers

  5. I'd guess that ratios play important part in the power of the winch vs power of the electric motor alone. Simple equation means that lower the ratio the less powerful electric motor is required to do the same work albeit slower. If its the speed than higher ratio is required but more powerful motor is required. Personally, I'd select lower ratio as speed is not important to me as well as mechanically less effort is required from the motor therefore less electrical power and less stress.......you get the point. Regards
  6. Been looking at getting a new winch but come across these different ratios. so, the big question, I have a Warn winch now with a 156:1 but have also seen winches with 265:1, 218:1 all with between 4.5kw and 5kw motors. so does it make a lot of difference what you have, talking between 9000lbs and 14000lbs. cheers.
  7. Hi we had the same problem with the GU Y61 TDI . we changed the fuel pump $2500 ( no fire ) we changed the glow plugs $125 ( no fire ) then my father lost all his keys Nissan wanted $1500 to transport the Nissan 450ks to there shop and also wanted $400 per key I brought the id41 chips and a few keys and programmed two keys to the y61 after programming the keys I thought I would wind it over all of a sudden it started first kick every day for 3 weeks now it has started first kick ever time . You might have the same problem hope this helps
  8. Hey people I have a whining sound in the front drivers wheel sounds like a coke can in bike spokes only when it starts to drive then when I brake it clunks hard something moves any help
  9. The vehicle runs and drives and most everything works. There is no light to tell me when the glow plugs have done their job. I fear the previous owner has done some tampering with various electrical things and maybe the glow plugs are not working at all. When it is cold, it is harder to start for sure. Runs great otherwise. I have only just purchased this older vehicle and I will get the book to study on what to expect. Found this site. I am a licensed engineer off ships in the merchant fleet. I retired here in Panama and there are several of these vehicles here. I can turn a wrench as needed but I prefer to leave things alone when they are working. I will change the oil and filters and keep a log of what I do and what I get someone else to do. I do not trust mechanics in Panama. I want to become an expert on this vehicle. Hope to learn from each of you guys.
  10. hi juys , i have a 2001 nissan patrol 4.2 turbo diesel , 60000 on the clock and still going very strong love it with a passion / i have a qusstion to ask , my grand son has had trouble with his zd30 navara gear bos , sticking in 3 rd gear , guess what , pop has to try and fix it for him ,having never worked on a navara , how do i remove the gear box with out any trouble , my patrol not a problem but the navara not sure can i get some help please ,as i have a car hoist and all the tools , what i am worried about it the two top bell housing bolts many thanks guys need help
  11. Anyone had good tuning experience in Sydney? Rebuilt the engine and pump,she is run in now and running fine.looking to open her up a bit.
  12. Hi All So my patrol ZD30 is having problems at the moment it will start and run fine on a cold start though as soon as the temp gauge goes up to about 1/4 the car will stall and wont start again.... I have tried the spare key still no go and i have checked all the fuses Any Ideas ??? Hopefully its not the injector pump
  13. I'm looking into doing all these mods as I have engine light reoccurring losing power up hills even went into limp mode yesterday for the first time
  14. G'day, The above is now pretty much just as historical info. Most of us have moved on onto next level which is basically re-mapped engine ECU making Dawes valve and similar as such redundant. The reason for Dawes valve or Timid valve are still valid though in case the factory ECU map is used. I run combo Dawes with Tilix valve because I have retained the dual boost control setup I had before going full re-map. GU2 has reinstalled factory boost control since the re-map fixes the short comings of the factory setup (limp mode due to overboost etc.) I have retained manual overide so I can force low boost ( set to 14 psi)on Dawes valve for economy or high boost setting ( 24 psi) on Tilix valve for mx power output and auto switching based on TPS percentage via voltage switch. Before re-map high boost was set to 18 psi due to factory induced limits. Regards
  15. Could you please indicates suitable values for the two boost pressures settings on the individual Dawes valves? My 2002 GU Y61 has already “hand grenaded” and been rebuilt with EGR blanked off, catch can fitted, needle valve and single Dawes (giving 14 psi boost) in place, and an electric Boost Controller Switch and second Dawes valve supplied. The mod.s are working well and I would now like to fit and use the second Dawes valve, hence the question regarding recommended pressure settings. The vehicle is running 33” x 16” tyres, a 50mm suspension raise and spring/shock absorber upgrade with a 3” exhaust and front winch/bar replacement. It is used mostly for off-roads and also a bit of camper trailer towing (about 1500 kg). I have read quite a bit of yours and others output about this “interesting” engine with great attention, but have not come across much in the way of definitive guide lines on these pressure values involved. Many thanks for your continuing interest and output and I look forward to your reply. Cheers, Rico. ,
  16. I have a1997 Y60 Nisan Patrol that has developed a violent and nasty shaking of the steering wheel when it meets even slight road unevenness at speeds above 60km/hr. Changed front shocks and carried out wheel balance and alignment, but problem persists. Will appreciate ideas as to what to do next to resolve the problem.
  17. Hi thanks for the info. I've purchased after market replacements as my light covers were cracked and as mentioned in your post, they came with the required wiring, but after fitting them, neither indicators or dash flashers work. I've checked all the globes and connections, but to no avail. Tail, stop lamps and reversing lights all work. Any suggestions as to where to go from here (other than an auto electrician)? Marcel
  18. Hi guys I have a Nissan gu y61 2000 model yesterday I programmed two keys to it by my self I brought ( id41 chips ) and a few Nissan keys i then used the computer I brought to add the keys to the immobiliser it took about 60 seconds to add two keys .
  19. Just check that engine ECU is staying alive during cranking process, it does sounds like 'DR' circuit is dropping hence if engine is turned on without starter motor it fires up. Could possibly be ECU ground/earth issue. Regards
  20. I concur, far easier and cheaper to have re- mapped ECU from Harley, instead of dicking around with addons which are being defeated constantly by the factory ECU. Indeed there isn't even the need for Dawes/Tilix or needle valve combos, just leave original factory boost control in, works like charm. Unfortunately flashing factory ECU is not straight forward process( deliberately designed to have once only EPROM chips instead of EEPROM) so I recommend getting extra ECU if he still offers that option as that way you have a backup OEM unit. Regards
  21. Mate do a search for East Coast Performance Tuning (ECPT). Harley there is the guru of tuning the patrol DI ecu. You can post it to him if your not close to him. I have heard he is restructuring his business at present so his business name may have changed. Alternatively you could try Pat at Powercurve performance (Nambour) who has been working with Harley a bit to tune these also. I understand Ecu tuning is considerable cheaper than a unichip, and certainly much better than any if the generic chips for this vehicle. Hope that helps Cheers
  22. newby, got a Patrol 2004 zd30di. I'm wanting to know what is the best way to tune my car and get the best performance. Can the ECU be flashed or do I need to get a Unichip I've fitted a 3" exhaust, guages, Dawes and needle Valve, next looking at a high flow filter box and pipework, and increase the intercooler and pipe sizes. Any suggestions
  23. Updated to 1.6.2 (latest) tapatalk plugin today.. Sorry it took so long
  24. So this one has me beat. 3.0 zd30 patrol, will not start off key. Fuel pressure all good battery volts good. Car will bump start first time every time and run fine. Ignition on starter solenoid bridged to rule out key switch still no start. Thought maybe lazy so replaced.. turns over a lot quicker but refuses to start off key .. Thoughts ?
  25. Well, indeed that could be the case, stuck partially open. Remove and check visually. Regards
  26. Hey Lads, first ever post, Recently picked up a 1992 model TB42E and I temp guage doesn’t work, gets to maybe 1/4 of the full guage, threw a new temp sensor in and still the same, is it possible I have a faulty thermostat as my heater also seems piss weak? Cheers
  27. Hi, OK, Clutch disengaged, in gear it begins to hunt. Heat switch on and same as above same deal, but the revs hunt from 11 rpm downwards. 4wd lever in neutral, clutch disengaged, in gear, same thing. Cant confirm on brake pedal theory at the moment. I am looking at TPS fault but will need to look into it a bit further. Clutch & flywheel is being replaced next month so will see what happens? Thanks for the reply will let you know what the outcome is.
