Question about 1999 Nissan Terrano
I have had a head gasket done on my nissan terrano 2.7tdi ,and the temprature still goes high,have checked for air locks ,nothing,
Posted by Anonymous on
When you had the head gasket done, did you find out what caused the overheating in the first place?
Did you replace the thermostat with a genuine Nissan one..they are not cheap but they work well?
Did you have the radiator taken out, the top and bottom tanks taken off and the radiator rodded through to make sure there was total efficiency of the radiator?
have you checked that the water pump is working, and that the thermostatic fan hub is reacting correctly to heat, and actually working when the engine gets hot?
have you had the whole cooling system put under pressure and left overnight to see if there are leaks anywhere?
Do you have any white sickly sweet vapors coming from the tailpipe on startup?

SOURCE: Nissan Terrano Chugging
When you are going up a hill, the engine is under an incresed load - requiring more fuel and spark, so I'd first check all of the ignition related items (Plugs/wires/cap/rotor), and it isn't a bad idea to replace the fuel and air filters if you haven't in a while. Once those are checked, it is very very common for a TPS (Throttle Position switch) to develop "dead spots"; where under accelleration they cause a "chugging", which sometimes is quite unnoticable - unless/until vehicle is under a load ( eg. driving up a hill). A new TPS can be installed and set with a multi-meter - probes attached to the proper terminals, and have the output voltage set at .47V to .50 V at idle (Closed throttle). I'd bet this is the cause, as they usually do not set a DTC (Code - Service Engine light) . It isn't 100% for sure, an air flow meter and/or other things can cause this type thing as well (also a weak spark or coil, etc), but highly unlikely - other malfunctioning parts often set trouble codes as well, and usually either malfunction or they don't. Hope this helps and if you find anything else - please let me know.
