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........

SOURCE: nissan terrano 1996 td27 charging issue.

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.

Why should my 2.7tdi terrano get through 4 glow plugs in one week?


Yeah, I agree that the relay is probably working...but my thought is that the only way you can burn out 4 glow plugs in a week is if the signal going to the relay is screwed up, and the glow plugs are on until they burn out... Did you have a battery problem during that week? Need to recharge or replace it? That could be a clue.... Or if you went on long journeys during that time where the alternator managed to compensate for the drain.....

Nissan terrano 2.7td. starting problem


Glow plugs are the answer to cold start problems.
Check that they work using a multimeter if you know how.
Otherwise connect a jumper cable from the hot terminal of the battery to the glow plug bus bar..be very careful not to ground the lead in any way to the head while doing this.
If the engine then starts easily with little smoke, the problem is with the relay or the timer of the glow plug circuit.

Intermittent battery dead.


This is not an easy repair. The system has a short or draw on the battery that could be located anywhere. I would take to a good local mechanic. The time involved could be very high in excess of 4 hours just to find the problem.
So taking to a shop you can trust can save you a lot of time. I know auto zone does some basic test to check the charging system. The alternator and starting system to see if there is correct out put on the alternator and if there is a draw on the starter for free. I guess that would be a good place to start.

Good luck
