Nissan 3.0 Hardbody Turbo Diesel

As soon as the rev's get to 3000 rpm, a blowing noise is heard and the truck seems to lose power as well. The idiling is 100% and oil leaks is visible

Do you think it is the turbo giving problems?

Your description sounds like a waste-gate problem.
These are intended to prevent overpressure from the turbo and yours might be faulty.

The oil leaks may not be related to the other problem - Jeez, would love to own some vehicle that never leaks oil from somewhere.

Hi there i have a 1997 Nissan Hardbody 1 tonner 2.7 turbo diesel it is pushing oil through the exhaust and its blowing white smoke what could be the cause ?

You probably need a new head gasket and other gaskets. Oil and probably anti-freeze are leaking in to the engine works. The white smoke is almost always caused by anti-freeze.

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.

Why does my 1995 nissan pick up lose power and speed on uphill inclines?

If you keep the RPMS (tach) up to 3000 and above (DONT REDLINE YOU'LL BLOW YER MOTOR UP!) At 3000 RPM to 3500 -4000 RPM is where these motors posses what i figure is a power band that handles most inclines. Down shifting included. DRIVE SAFE
