Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra

2 Answers

Heating problem i have fitted a nissan cd17 diesel in my ford ikon which earlier had a petrol engine. The main problem is of heating. The temperature touches the red and then the fan starts. I have even changed to a bigger radiator and have also changed the heating switch twice. One important thing is that the pipe to one side of the radiator is hot and the other side is cold... please help!!!

Check theromstat, also test coolant probe be sure it is sending good signal. Also you may need to oversize the waterpump pulley. Be sure the pump is moving the coolant .

What is a glow plug


Glow plugs are heating devices to aid starting diesel vehicles.
Purpose:Diesel engines, unlike petrol engines, do not use spark plugs to induce combustion. Instead, they rely solely on compression to raise the temperature of the air to a point where the diesel will combust spontaneously when introduced to the hot high pressure air. The high pressure and spray pattern of the diesel ensures a controlled, complete burn. The piston rises, compressing the air in the cylinder; this causes the air's temperature to rise. By the time the piston reaches the top of its travel path, the temperature in the cylinder is very high. The fuel mist is then sprayed into the cylinder; it instantly combusts, forcing the piston downwards, thus generating power. The pressure required to heat the air to that temperature, however, necessitates the use of a large and very strong engine block. The problem posed is that in cold weather, if the engine has not been running (as is the case when the car is left to sit overnight), that the large engine block becomes very cold; when one then attempts to start the engine, the cold engine block acts as a heat sink, quickly dissipating the heat generated by the pistons compressing air. The engine is then unable to start, because it cannot generate and maintain enough heat for the fuel to ignite. For that reason indirect injected diesel engines are manufactured with glow-plugs in each prechamber, and direct injected diesel engines are manufactured with glow-plugs in each combustion chamber.

I want to put the motor from a 97 or 98 grand cherokee into a 94 the has a piston issue can this be done please say yes


If you mean the monster 4 litre petrol engine then yes because i have changed one as they are all the same block but you will ahve to sort the later to earlier ignition system but not a problem but use the parts off the old one,fitted a diesel into one as well for a car dealer as the petrol ones here are worthless pieces of junk,but a diesel with a manual box ?? around 5000 euros but a petrol with no LPG gas conversion even in good condition you might be lucky to get 500 euros ,scrap man will give you 50/100 euros .Highest value vehicles here when old are merc diesels or a peugeot /citreon/renault diesel cars ,petrol you cannot give them away least off all a 4litre gas guzzler with a auto box

I have put 8 litres of diesel in my 2005 renault scenic i have topped it up with 25 litres of petrol and run it for about 20 miles so far will this be ok once the the tank is empty


The 8 liters of diesel mixed with the 25 liters will make the vehicle smoke a little but if you continue to dilute the diesel/petrol mixture with petrol as your tank level goes down you should have minimal problems. When the tank gets to half you should refill it with petrol for at least two times. The main two problems I could think of that would cause you any concern would be the fuel filter getting partially plugged and the injectors gumming up. By continuing to dilute the tank with petrol you should be okay because the filter and injectors will clean themselves up while you drive. Just make sure you do not take any short drives. Let the engine warm up to operating temperature until you have ran at least two complete tanks of petrol through it.
