Sorry without a turbo it will feel like its pulling a load ,but as for being extra slow ??? the main cause of this is a either a low transfer pressure in the injector pump or the injectors are dribbling ,best advice here is to take it to bosch injection specialist and ask them to check the injection pressures .And get some sort of price as this work is very expensive ,if i have a injector overhauled iam am looking at around 150 euros per injector and a pump at about 600 euros and this is if i dismantle them

Hi I have a Nissan Navara turbo deisel 2002 model it drives for approx 50 minutes country driving then dies, I wait for 1--2 minutes and it starts up and drives off as if nothing happened only to do i


2002 is common rail with all fancy electrics and computers and stuff like that ,now this makes it very difficult for this old fleet fitter who used to repair diesels with nothing more complicated than a vacumn controlled speed govenor ,where we used to re-calibrate the injector pump on the vehicle .I think this fault is either something simple like a plastic bag in the fuel tank that gets caught up in the pick up pipe ,failing which its a complicated electronic issue of which i confess to knowing nothing about

Did the 1986 Volvo 760 have maintenance issues?


All Volvo passenger cars have a rigorous maintenance schedule. Typical items:
1) Timing belt and tensioner are designed to last only 50,000 miles. Both must be replaced when performing service on the belt drive system.
2) Transmission fluid service includes a filter and screen. It also includes cleaning of the magnets which trap particles before they can damage the transmission.
3) Models with two fuel pumps can have issues if the main pump fails or the tank pump fails. If either is suspect, change both and replace the filter, which is to be found underneath the car, in a cradle under the driver's side.
4) The fuel pump relay is especially vulnerable to failure - it is to be found on the overflow bottle (1984 to 1989 non-turbo, Regina non turbo) and all others on the driver's side, near the front of the car, aside of the battery on a clip.
5) B230F series engines use a rear-mounted distributor, the seals are prone to hardening and failure. They are all replaceable and at the time of this writing, are still obtainable. The procedure is relatively straightforward to remove and replace.
6) Oil seals all over the car should be replaced: front oil seals, cam oil seals, etc. They are all prone to hardening over the years and as such, should be replaced.
7) Vacuum lines 20+ years old usually will crumble - it is recommended to remove and replace them all. They are of different construction per the application and the general rule of thumb is to use the harder lines as they will not **** shut under high vacuum nor bulge during boost, if the vehicle is equipped with a turbocharger (1982-1986 used a GT03 Garrett, and later models used either a Mitsubishi TD04 or TD05).
8) New copper sealing washers must be used when working on the fuel or oil systems. Always use teflon tape when refitting various oil lines.

What type of motor oil should i use?


A stock 2000 Maxima engine is non-turbo and 5W30 oil is recommended by nissan. As the mileage on the engine increases, you should switch to a heavier weight oil, like 10W40.

I have a 2002 Mazda 6, 2 ltr turbo deisel, the hydraulic valve adjusters are getting noisier by the day. No oil warning lights coming on. any ideas?


Th only thing you can do is have it inspected and have an oil service. Anything else will require a more indepth teardowm and diagnoses. Its possible the last oil service they put the wrong weight oil in it.

Any particular quirks to changing the oil in a 1998 V70? I have 160K on it, is it time to go to a different grade of oil?


No different from any other oil change, just reset the oil life on the dash if it has one which i believe it does. The oil grade is 5W-30 on the turbo engines and 10W-30 on the non turbo engines. If you like you can go with the synthetic oil which will give you up to 25,000 miles or 1 year before service, but you do have to replace the oil filter every 5,000 to 7,000 mile and top off the synthetic oil which in the long run be cheaper then changing the oil and filter every 5,000 miles or six months for turbo and 3,000 to 4 months for non turbo engines. Good luck and hope this helps.

I need the piston firing order for a VG30E or a VG30ode


My sincere apologies for the extremely delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.


1. Non Turbo =VG30E. Turbo = VG30ET. In any case the Engine Cylinder numbers, Firing Order, and Distributor Connections are the same.

For the 3.0L:
Firing Order:
1-2-3-4-5-6
Cylinders:
(back of engine)
5--------6
3--------4
1--------2
(front of engine)
Distributor:
....(back)
.6......5......4
.|.......|........|
V......V......V
|..................|
|..................|
^.......^.......^
.|........|........|
1.......2.......3
....(front)

2. I am not sure what what "cam adjustments" you were looking for. I am sure you probably have taken care of that or found what you were looking for. However, in most cases the person is really asking about the Timing issue.

Click on the following Link for the Timing Belt/Chain Diagrams.

Again, my sincerest apologies:
