Question about Nissan Terrano
It was running fine we had a lot of water on the road,s and now it will not start
Posted by Anonymous on
How deep was this water..over headlight deep?
The air intake is just behind the left headlight, submerging this may cause water to be drawn into the engine. If this happens, water is not compressible, and the pistons hit, and the con rods bend which reduces the compression enough for the engine not to start.
That is, of course, the worst case scenario.
Diesel engines will start on just about any oily spray introduced to the inlet manifold..such as wd40, crc556 etc. while spinning the starter, spray same into the turbo inlet.
If the engine starts and runs even if a little roughly, you have a fuel problem.
DO NOT USE ETHER!!!
If the glow plugs are working, you will get an explosion, not combustion. It will not be a good thing........

First things first; 1) check Terminals and make sure tight & clean 2) Make sure the batteries good 3) Make sure connection from battery to starter is secured 4) Make sure its not the starter clicking if it is change it. 5) Make sure starter relay is good located with all fuses!

Did you hear the one about the Terrano with a charging problem?
Just fix it by replacing the thermostat!
Seriously - check your temperature gauge does it take ages for the needle to barely get off cold? (and is the heater useless?)
The needle should get to just below half way in 2 or 3 minutes.
If the thermostat is stuck open, then the engine does not get up to temperature.
The glow plug control senses the engine temperature is cold, so the glow plugs stay on for an extended period of time (sometimes 10 to 15 minutes) - short trips particularly in winter, with more headlight driving - the alternator can't keep up with the current being drawn off and from time to time you will end up with a flat battery!
A thermostat is cheap, and easy to replace (three bolts and about a half litre of coolant - I pumped the coolant from the top of the radiator, and didn't spill a drop when the thermostat housing was removed).
Sure enough, as the engine temperature reached about 50C, the glow plugs turned off.
