Check coolant levels, has coolant ever been replaced?
Thermostat, has it ever been replaced? the thermostat may be seizing up.
back wash radiator, if its cooling surfaces are filling upwith dirt and debris it will become less efficient.

I have a nissan diesel 4 cylinder td27 engine , what i the normal oil pressure gauge reading for this engine whilst running

2.9 to 3.9 bar at 3000 rpm is fairly general for the Nissan range including turbo diesel, though the pressure isn't listed for the td27 engine. I doubt it would be more or less than the others.
I notice one Nissan commercial vehicle engine where 3.0 bar at 2000 rpm is specified.

The oil pressure test should be carried out at normal operating temperature.

The engine and the Trans are in timing with each other from the factory...If the RPMs are revving up but the TRANS isn't keeping up with the Engine The problem sounds to be in the trans...Unless your calipers are sticking and holding you back....!?...A Throttle position Sensor can give you problems because It controls the throttle but normally if it is faulty it should run rough at any level....Same goes for the Idle Air Control valve....A fault in either of these components will produce abnormal RPMs and a rough running engine....Early signs of a clogged fuel filter will stall you while going up a hill also.....Of course the engine will get a temperature increase because it is being overworked....It may not be as hot as you think considering the gauge reading you described...You would have to use a handheld thermometer for a positive engine degree reading....However if it is evidently boiling hot and gauge reads normal it sounds like a faulty sensor in which case is a different problem....Make sure coolant is full to be safe......m..

On my nissan murano one of the radiator fan dosen't work passanger side

I'm not sure if the Murano is this way, but several vehicles have staggered fans. One fan works when the temp gets to a certain level, then if the temp goes up more, the other fan kicks on.

Try running the A/C and see if both fans operate, and give it some time to allow the temperature to climb. Don't let it get past 3/4 on the temp gauge though, if you are experiencing overheating.

Cooling Fan running

check your coolant level for anti freeze strength and also check your thermostat is opening fully, to do this take out the thermostat and place it in a bold of hot water you will see it closing then place it in a cold bowl of water an you should see it opening, Also check your temp sender for a few bucks you may as well change it out though.

Hi I have a 1990 nissan Terrano which has been th best car Ihave had. The temperature normally stays really low or highest of half way but has lately has started to be much higher. On short journeys up...

hi there is a lot of causes can make the temperature higher 1- you have to inspect the coolant visually to determine its condition rust.oil(internal engine leak) NB the coolant or antifreeze should be changed at regular intervals .after prolonged use,coolant will break down and become very corrosive 2- a faulty engine fan can cause overheating you have to check water pump if there is any noise coming up it during engine running and check belts and the fan for bent blades ,cracks,flexible fans are especially prone to these problems if any troubles are found replace the fan 3-a stuck thermostat can cause engine overheating if the thermostat is stuck shut,coolant will not circulate through the radiator as a result overheating could make the coolant boil. hope that will help you if you need any more assistant leave it here and i will check it

Thermostat is closed all the time, it needs to be replaced ASAP-don't drive it to the point of it overheating, an aluminum engine does not tolerate overheating well-blown head gaskets, warped head/block, or worse, all very expensive-the thermostat is cheap and should cost less than $100 to replace, you could do it yourself for less than $25.

Oil pressure light stays on

It will take a while for the oil to circulate throughout the engine at that cold of a temperature. You may want to get an oil change done and make sure you have the proper oil for the temperatures. What happends is that the oil gets thicker and has a harder time circulating through the engine. BE VERY CAREFUL leaving the car run with the oil light on. You can blow the engine very quickly as I learned the hard way. Good luck to you and thanks for using FixYa!
