  3. G'day, IMHO it is the injection pump part. If only you had diesel injection specialist around who has Bosch scanner which will read internal pump ECU codes. That is the only fool proof way to identify if it is injectiom pump control circuit. Apparently someone was able to make his own DYI scanner. I had a link to it in the past..... If there is anyone to blame for this fiasco it is Bosch and the shyte they did where allegedly the stole this idea of radial injection pump and messed it up big time. VP44 is throw away design for which those responsible should be shot honestly. The story of Bosch VP44 epic fail is legendary, be it States, or in the UK most repair shops should be very familiar with it as it was very common in diesel powered Vauxhals/Opels/Audi etc of the late 90s early 00s. Japs bought in to it with Zexel and here we are with Nissan. Biggest killers of these pumps are heat and fuel starvation. Regards
  4. Hi thanks for your help. Firstly to investigate NATS or anything else at this stage i need to take Patrol to autoelectrician who already i talked through all the checks i done with NATS and the dash lights that it works with and everything was well and i was advised to take it to a mecanic as he said if it was kicking with starting spray it couldn't be something electrical. (His opinion) sure wouldn't you think that starting spray would fire anyway in any tight combustion chamber. I'm not convinced that using starting spray in the airbox shows us anything at all. Here is what i'm faced with and what i have done so far. 1/ Anyway, the real problem now is with no fault codes my options are running out. Should i take it to Nissan as there is a garage in the next county. The problem is it will cost me 80euros for a diagnostic check (Min cost depending on time spent at it) or with no codes present will they be able to tell me either what's wrong?? The tow truck and diagnostic day with nissan may not stop at 300euros! This is before the Patrol gets touched to be repaired at all 2/ Should i try the CAS sensor?? would it be worth changing out.. List of what i have done -Changed and primed a new Diesel filter (NO KICK) -Checked NATS with both keys (NO KICK) -Checked NATS light on dash by removing chip from key and trying to start (SOLID RED LIGHT STAYS ON DASH) -Used a made up funnel direct to IP (NO KICK) - Sprayed starting fluid in to airbox (KICKED,TRYING TO FIRE) I just don't know what to do next, my mecanic advised me on the phone it was the IP but this involves a tow truck and getting the Patrol to him, then is it going to be the IP after all that...why the hell is the stupid machine not giving me fault codes!!! lol Dan
  5. G'day, I don't know what is CAS! Argh, the acronyms Crank Angle Sensor ..... If main ECU claims no faults then you have to flash out codes from the pump ECU....... However, ZD30 are also known not starting if the cranking RPM are lower then expected.....I think that one applies to CrD more likely. There is a chance that pump ECU is not powering up so check that battery voltage is present at appropriate terminals and that ground connection is also sound. There is a guide on the net on howto force the IP ECU to power up in emergency and fire up the engine in the idle mode only. Here ===> https://www.bluechipdiesel.com/runningtests Bear in mind that these are for North Amercian 6 cylinder version of VP44 however the underlying method is corect as 6 cylinder version only difference is in the distributor and pumping element. Control side is identical apart from no external lift pump circuit on Nissan. Also ensure that wiring connections listed are as on your Nissan by checking wiring diagram in the Nissan manual which by now any selfrespecting Patrol owner should have already aquired. I'd also not discount the fact that NATS might have something to say about that too. Have your tried your spare key? Regards
  6. Hello all, Dan here from Limerick Ireland. Good to be here
  7. I need a Patrol guru... Ok firstly hello to all, some probably know me from the other forums. Ok a fast recap of my machine and then to get to my problem.I drive a DI 2004 Patrol it has never missed a beat. Yes the mileage is high now @ 280000miles (450000k's) all that was ever done was the clutch and solid flywheel conversion.So recently i came home from work and i had no engine lights, nothing wrong, pulling a good load of timber behind.Great power... well maintained Patrol. Never misses a beat and so i came home and switched it off,went in and had some lunch (probably one hour gone) and returned to go back to work and a NO START....cranking over but nothing... STRANGE... Ok so ahead are the things i have done but it is hell cause i'm getting no codes. 1/ I bridged the terminals 8 & 1 to get codes, i kept getting 0505 which is no faults detected!!! 2/ Took of fuel filter put on a new one with freshly filled diesel, got a good prime on the lift pump...NO KICK. 3/ Opened airbox used some starting spray GOT A KICK... trying to start. 4/ Done more diagnostics and got a code 0403 (Throttle position sensor) 5/ Changed throttle pedal and sensor (Still no START) 6/ About to change the CAS now I really don't mind putting money in to my Patrol,i suspect the IP as a possible failure too but i'm not sure what to change/check simply as i am getting no damn fault codes Any suggestions before i go mad!!! LOL ... Regards Dan
  8. Today I upgraded IPBoard to the latest release 4.4. Enjoy
  9. Sorry to hear about that. To answer your questions: 1. No the extra lift pump will be/should be installed before the fuel filter cause they're better to "push" the fuel than pull, it that is their primary design..... 2. Yes spill/leak off pipe returns excess fuel back to fuel tank or back to suction side of the IP side, depends on the design chosen. Nissan Patrol ZD30 implementation is to return the spill line to the suction side of the IP pump cause inbuilt vane lift pump( which is itself dreadful design cause it requires higher RPM to increase the flow rate) Thats why We have to re- route it to return to overflow side of IP fuel return line when using external lift pump to pressurize what was suction line which would ruin the spill line workings. The good old design is to return spill line to fuel tank, it improves fuel cooling as well, unless you are in Arctics or similar very environments where it will help heating/warming of the fuel. In hot climates it is a disaster to have. Some designs out there have thermostatic valve which depending on ambient temps re-routes fuel flow from spill line either back to fuel tank (hot day)or back to fuel filter suction line(cold day). Sadly not on Ni$$ans LOL. Be vary that Carter 4600/4601 lift pumps installations require to have as a safety measure bypass built in in case of the pump failure or blockage as fuel starvation will result in IP failure again. Regards
  10. Well, the problem turned out to be the pump and I dropped the van off at a recommended reliable diesel mechanic (remember, small island in the West Indies!!). He said it's a common issue with this vehicle and others that carry the same pump and the major culprit is poor quality fuel (I was told by a friend working in the island's petroleum distribution company that we do not receive or refine "Diesel" as such. He says we are supplied with GAS OIL, not white diesel). The mechanic had at least 3 Mitsubishi L300 vans, along with Nissan Frontiers and a couple more Caravans so it's not me alone with this suffering. I did some checking on the forum about the Carter 4600 pump and I think that I understand fully what it actually does, providing an ample supply of pressurized fuel to the diesel pump so that the diesel pump itself is not under strain to pull fuel all the way from the tank so I'll look into that. Problem is, with the tight spaces, will I find room to install this lift pump inside the tight confines of this panel van? Other questions...(Please be gentle. I have 0 knowledge of the build of this engine) 1/. Is this lift pump installed after the fuel filter? I would assume "YES" to avoid additional strain on the diesel pump to pull fuel through the filter. 2/. What is the purpose of the spill/injector leak pipe? Does this allow excess fuel sent to the injectors to flow back to the tank?
  11. Hi every one been having problem with my ZD30 2001 patrol. engine light coming on other time nothing . but also having power loss. it did stall and when i restarted it it ran like shit shut it down straight away let it sit. restarted and seamed fine but notice the engine like coming on every now and then when i start the car. other time nothing. then it has been coming on after driving for a while at a lose can =any one help thanks for your time all the best
  12. Get it to dyno tune mate let them fix it best way to go
  13. The injection pump is not a build for back yarder for sure.... As for the turbo, "how long is a piece of string?" You will have to search what is avail in Bolivia. Usual suspects like Garret, Switzer, perhaps KKK or Holset make something you could use. The thing with non turbo injection pump working correctly with the specific turbo is another matter. Regards
  14. Those filters are available from Ni$$an stealers, you can also chase ones from Mann and other aftermarket suppliers. Regards
  15. I took the glove box out and the filter slot was closed see photo. Its a two part filter that clips together then slids in. I just wanted to no were to buy the right filter for it. Ill problem go to Nissan spare parts if i have no luck here but there so expensive.
  16. While it is probably your injector pump like previously said, I had a similar experience with my zd30 many years ago which turned out to be a faulty crank angle sensor. Once replaced it sprung back into life. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  17. Mate my 2016 patrol definitely has one. I'd be surprised if yours wasn't factory fitted, therefore you can get genuine ones or after market ones at any good auto parts store Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  18. Does any no the were i can get a cabin filter for a gu 2015 patrol, i no it didnt come out with one but you can cut the section out of the air box to make one fit. Just need to no which one it would be. cheers paul
  19. Sometimes its easier to say something with a video.....
  20. Good day mates. I'm new to the forum and wanna thank you for the great discussions that are already out. My truck is a 93 model LWB TD42 silver top. I'm thinking about upgrading the engine with a turbo. I read that, to get more power out of it I would have to upgrade the pump as well. So my question is, if I have to buy a 2k+ 12mm pump or if there is a way to get this done like some kind of backyard job. Just changing distributor head or is there more work involved? My second question is: what Turbo can I use? I have to explain that I live in Bolivia and good Quality 3rd Party Products are nearly not available and/ore not affordable. I would have to seach a used Turbo and adapt it to de td42. What could you suggest? The good thing however is that I don't have to worry about laws and regulations. It just has to work. ;-) I appreciate your help. Cheers Michael Gesendet von meinem BLA-L29 mit Tapatalk
  21. so i found this car for 4k its done 264km and the guy says its in perfect condition the description is "very clean new springs shackles all rubbers replaced newcarby kit Installed new tires 31 Mickey Thompson’s on new rims new front brake pads. This Ute is a very clean specimen of a Nissan no rust in cab or Chassis very straight Will come with roadworthy . just fitted with New swaybar rubbers and steering dampener" im gonna go take a look at it very soon i wanna know what i should pay attention to while driving it or inspecting it or any advice or opinion is welcomed. said he used it to put bikes not it for riding hes a mechanic and said he has done service every 5000

  23. It means tolerances given for each block and crank combination. You will need specs for each to understand the sizes. Something like bellow Regards
  24. Can anyone please reply to this post above urgent Cheers
  25. Hi All Need to know what does STD1 - STD2 - STD3 - STD4 - STD0 stand for in Main Bearings for the popular rd28eti? Patrol Brg Data Selection Chart.pdf
  26. G'day, The only servicing required is good quality fuel and regular fuel filter replacement (more often then service intervals from Nissan due to poor quality fuel). Some people try additives in the fuel like diesel treatment types ( I'm not sure what is available in your area) which can be helpfull when quality of diesel is low. I use here in Australia Chemtec Diesel Power I also add two stroke mineral oil in ratio 1:200 (or multiply liters of fuel added to tank by 5 to get the amount of oil to ad in ml) because older Diesel fuel injection system don't handle low sulphur diesel fuel that well so extra lubricity doesn't hurt. As for legality of that thats another matter. So in your case finding additive for low quality/ bad fuel could perhaps be beneficial. There is also a modification to add external electrical fuel lift pump to ensure fuel starvation will never occur because that is one of the main killers of those pumps but there is a modification needed to be done to spill/ injector leak off pipe otherwise the engine will be pumped full of fuel. This apply to Nissan Patrol so I'm not sure how is fuel return from injectors leak off or spill line routed in your vehicle. External lift pump like Carter 4600 series or Walbro 13-2 or better abble to supply up to 12 psi head pressure will improive things greatly but it does require you to understand thing or two about fuel supply on ZD30 and routing of fuel lines/ The injector pump has its own lift supply pump built in but it is hopelessly inadequate especialy at low RPM so bonus is when fitting external supply pump is a slight gain in low down RPM power increase. In that case injectors spill lines is connected straight to suction side of the pump port which means it needs to be connected changed to return line to fuel tank. Regards
