    Rumcajs got a reaction from Tito in Glow plug Timer\dash light   
    Hello,
    Firstly you need to tell us which model of Nissan Patrol and which engine?
    TD42 uses glow plugs relay controller and ZD30 uses engine ECU to control glow plugs.
    ZD30 will glow plugs on start unless engine operating temp is 70°C.

    What a mess! Soldering wires if done properly should not affect readings however soldering is not performing well under mechanically stresed connections.
    If I was repairing that loom I'd make intermediate plug/crimp joint in the wires but thats me,  even RAAF teaches its technicians that "soldering is for PCBs and crimping for cables and I had same training for my trade from the vehicle manufacturers....
    As with the chip your best bet if you really want to know is to expose its internals aka check the PCB with all the electronic hardware.  Like this one ==>

     
    Essentially repackaged DTE chip the grand daddy of them all.
    Anyway, yours seems awfully like the DPU system or  Diesel Power Unlimited

    I found the link to to it on Russian E-bay (DPU chip)

    G'day,
    I've never heard of "overboosting" switch, what is it?
    Anyway here:






    I would ensure that earthing circuit are correct. Y61 is notorious for bad earths, indeed I recommend running extra earth cable between chassis and body and en
    gine and chassis.

    G'day,
    Chances are that ECU from the wreckers will not be very useful to you without immobilizer recoding. However hold on to that ECU cause you can send (unless you are close to mid coast of NSW) it to have it re-maped and as a part of it they can disable immobilizer so not only you gain extra ponies but keep your original ECU as well. Much better option then diesel "piggy back" dodgy chip.
    As far as that "overboosting switch" there is no such thing as a switch.... What happens is that ECU monitors MAF output and correlates it to TPS position and RPM and if values are too high it will derate until you release pedal and re-apply which resets the limp process. That is what happens not the overboosting indeed ECU seems to ignore boost values in regards of this function on Series 1, 2, and 3. From Series 4 onwards there is mapping for boost as well incorporated in ECU fuel mapping and it will limp if you exceed 18 psi but still MAF, RPM and TPS% is considered.

    G'day mate,
    Well it all depends on how much $$$ you want to spend.  LS2 upgrade is very popular indeed there are dedicated Facebook groups to that conversion where everything needed is explained including links to suppliers of parts etc. (I can't help you with Facebook part you need to Google that) For example there are ready made engine mounts for LS2 to bolt on the ZD30 mounts for example so no cutting or welding is required.
    To upgrade engine complete with the transmission you will have to find a donor car and get the complete set as fitted by the manufacturer because the mismatches around are all too common and there is nothing to make them fit if you get the 2 items from 2 different sources.....
    Then there is legal paperwork hurdle you need to jump over too to get that conversion ticked off by the authorities, not sure what is the case in ACT.
    So depending what is wrong with the ZD30 and how much deep you want to go to that rabbit hole the LS2 conversion is probably the best bet.

    My name is Rich, and like many of you I have a passion for my Patrol, I have made some good modifications and some bad modifications over the past few years. I like working on cars and do everything I can with my rig.
    The story of my Patrol.
    I have a  gold 1999 gu patrol that strated life as 2.8TD, the engine was a little tired, so I decided to do a engine swop and install a ls77 (installed a bigger cam in the engine for more low down power and a bunch of other bolt on goodies). I also installed a 4.2 ledgendery gearbox and drive shaft as I still wanted a manual. I also installed a S/S patroldoctor snorkel and airbox. I have a 3" lift kit with a set of 33 mud tyres, a 3" custome made exhust with exstractors and all the usual bolt on stuff like lights and winch. I dyno tuned it when it was finished and was happy with the results, but I will get a few more kW with a few other modifications that dont cost a lot of money.
    I have set up my rig for more touring than to have supper flex.I still have a few modifications to go before I can say she is finished, I am working on for my next project is a reverse scoop, has any one done one for ther patrol? 
    I only have pictures of my engine bay and not what my rig looks like sorry for that 
    Look forward to getting to know a few of you and drawing from the members experiance and knowledge and helping if I can with some of my experience.

    Rumcajs got a reaction from Boggy bay in Crank sensor   
    What motor?
    RD28 has crank sensor too, so does TD42Ti.....
    if ZD30 Di  ==>
    The crankshaft position sensor (TDC) monitors engine speed by
    means of signals from the sensing plate (with three protrusions)
    installed to the crankshaft pulley. The data signal output is detected
    at ATDC 70° and sent to the ECM. The sensor signal is used for
    fuel injection control and fuel injection timing control...
    It has magnetic inductive sensor which is generating its own AC voltage or so is my understanding.
    Only Hall effect sensors require power supply.
    You really need an oscilloscope to measure anything in there...
    You can measure however
    resistance between crankshaft position sensor (TDC) terminals 1 and 2.
    should be:  1200 -1600 Ohms at 20°C
    * Check harness continuity between ECM terminal 47 and terminal 2.Continuity should exist.
    * Check harness continuity between terminal 1 and ECM terminal 44.Continuity should exist.
    * Check harness continuity between crankshaft position sensor (TDC) terminal 3 and engine ground. Continuity should exist.
    Check the gap/clearance should be 0.2-1.8 mm

    I've got Walbro FRB-13, good unit but I think I can make it even better with Walbro FRB-22 (higher output pressure) so I'll be changing soon to that one.
    Other use Carter 4600 if I had space under bonnet (my preferred instalation location) I'd get FASS unit with built in fuel filters. With Carter you have make a by-pass installation if it stops running, with Walbro you don't its flow trough is unaffected if the pump is off.

    Rumcajs got a reaction from kasunsamee in Gq glow plugs   
    G'day
    I'd follow the advice ricster gave, I'm just unsure about TD42 plugs. If you search Bosch part numbers for example it will give GPN338 for TD42 and its derivates but not for RD28.
    Also glow system in GQ's RD28 works in the different way so unless you rewire/change the control system I'd be wary of using TD42 glow plugs. RD28 uses ceramic glow plugs and 2 types as well [3 double pole units marked yellow are required per engine (last 3 cylinders) and 3 of the single pole plugs marked blue (Front 3 cylinders)] because of the way they can be operated so putting metal tipped cheaper ones from T42 without modding the controls will burn them quickly.

    Hmm,
    Are you sure you have enough fuel coming and it is not aerated? When I had injector lines off on mine it took me almost 45 mins of cranking and priming the system before it would finally start, very nerve wrecking experience to be sure.
    I'd connect clear plastic hose between fuel filter and the pump and return line on the pump and the return pipe to see for myself. If there is no air present in the fuel then the news is/can be indeed the bad one for your vallet.
    Are you sure there are no DTCs or engine MIL is not flashing? If the pump ECU doesn't respond to main ECU signal requests the MIL will flash, you can check that is the case by disconnecting the plug on the pump itself the MIL should flash (turn the ignition off first when disconnecting the plug)
    * If there is no fuel pumping out of injection line at all that means that either:
    * pump ECU is not powering up (either B+ or B- wiring is not OK),
    * main ECU is not powering up (Ign+, B+ or B-)
    * main engine ECU is not telling the pump ECU to start injecting fuel (NATS or data link between the ECUs is not OK)
    * pump ECU and or Injection pump is broken
    There is a way as a last resort to force pump ECU to operate in the so called hot mode by powering up/grounding certain pin/s but it is not for weak hearted and I'm not sure if it applies to 4 cylinder versions of VP44/Zexel units. ===>
    Disclaimer: you must ensure that the pin outs are correct for your model! Above instructions are for 6 cylinder versions of Bosch VP44
    There is also a very dodgy way to see if the engine will start at all (so you can discount other things) that you take  intercooler hose of between intake manifold of and spray healthy dose of Aero™ Start in there and crank to see what happens.
    I personally would have to be very desperate to try that way as the possible damage caused makes me cringe!

    That's to centre the filter I suppose, mine looks different but it has something similar to the lower section without that tube extending upwards, perhaps earlier design. Also the lower lip is to act as a barrier should the water get inside the filter box hence the drain hole outside of it.
    Many people mistakenly block it and then face the consequences, although jury is still out in regards to it.

    pricey but less hassle to chase everything yourself when only getting the catch can.....and last thing you want is some home made attempt which may or may not work. I fully recommend the unit I have one and everyone else with Patrols I know has.
    There is this unscrupulous mob which sells Chinese knock offs via various 4WD forums for slightly less but bear in mind they're getting those from Chinese supplier for $15-20 each while they increase the price to you ten folds and you are still getting a fake.

    Well, join the crowd.
    This is becoming standard fare from Y61. CrD ZD30 seems to dring like it is a  LC200 V8 and yours is not the only one.
    No one seems to pinpoint the reason but I can tell you right now Nissan $tealer will blame it all on you, if you fit bullbar, if you fit roof rack, if you fit seat covers .....you name it.
    I'm going to be honest and tell you I wouldn't purchase 2015 Nissan Patrol Y61 with ZD30 engine today even if it was at half price sale.
    Nissan have absolutely fcuked up this model for good. Engine drinks fuel like mad,(consider that some examples will take it to 17-19 L/100 category) the electronics to aid with stability control completely destroyed the aftermarket suspension fitment/mods and the famous Ni$$an warranty is something to behold.
    I'm very much doubtful that the fuel eco will improve much, at best you'll be glad when it comes down to 13-14 L. It is insane that such modern fuel injection can't match the old crappy injection pump output .. I just managed to break under 11 L/100 on mine first time ever and that's with all the extras and M/T tyres and 3t constant weight.
