Question about 1999 Nissan Pathfinder

Why does my Nissan Terrano 2.7 turbo diesel have no power?

Nissan Terrano 2.7 turbo diesel starts ok but has no pulling power, painfully slow at pulling away and speed drops drastically on the slightest of gradient. Appears some kind of a fuel problem?

    Check the exhaust recycling valves, across the back of the engine there is a pipe where exhaust is fed back into the intake manifold while cruising and idle. I had a problem with this due to throttle position sensor not sending the right signals to control the valves. I disabled the valves so that it did not recycle or restrict the airflow with the butterfly valve on the air intake. Before fixing it the car would blow huge clouds black smoke when accelerating.

I had the same problem . Local dealer did not seem to know the solution. Eventually trawling these pages I tried changing the air mass metering unit which I got from ebay dealer for about £30 something. The change in performance was staggering. I believe you can clean the unit with a solvent too. It is easy to change yourself and is in line after air filter. Ed

Flow fuel line from the filter to the injector pump remove banjo bolt don't loose the cooper washes .under this normally there is a spring then right in the bottom a small fimble looking mesh filter . Remove it and clean it should make a big difference . Once this is done a good in fuel injector cleaner

Guys

I had a similar problem with lack of power, not noticeable aroundtown but really noticeable on dual carriageway. Gear change on the automatic box wasn't as smooth as normal and Couldn't rev past 3500, on full throttle , white blue smoke , sounded like a misfire, but only happened on wide open throttle. Suspected fuel starvation so :
Changed fuel filter -no difference.
Disconnected and blew air down the fuelpipes, felt quite difficult and tasted horrible.
Took tank sender out , checked swirl on pickup that was slightly dirty in colour but free of blockage .
Then noticed if I pressurised the lift pump the engine revved better but only for a couple of revs. I had previously tried to find the filter in the banjo on the fuel pump to no avail, but I'd covered off all of the other easy stuff, so went back to the banjo again. This time I removed the spring under the banjo bolt, dug deeper (about 7CM's) into the pump fetched the banjo out, spring out then I had to make long thin hook to fetch the tiny filter out. It was filthy,nearly 20 years of use,probably never been removed before. I did break it getting it out, so left it out, Nissan did the same sometimes

Oh my God, what a difference, its the best its ever been.

Hope this helps others .. thanks

    IT is the needle valve in the injector pump, being fly by wire there are two magnets that drive the needle up and down governing the flow of fuel. this is the issue with these pumps.

Ok, here is another possibility. I was driving and went to overtake, part way through the overtake, the engine just died, eased off on the throttle, to get a little power back, by 200km (120 miles) later, I could barely get to 100 km/h on flat road. Basically the engine was getting starved of fuel when it needed more. So I got a new fuel filter, by another 200km I could only do 50km/h on hills and 80km/h downhill. I was hoping to make it home without having to replace it at night, but that was becoming impossible. I pulled over and replaced the fuel filter (left side of engine bay against fire wall) and bled the fuel system by manually pumping the button on top of the fuel filter, until resistance is felt - this can take a while, as the filter is completely empty, and if you start the engine and it dies, then you haven't pumped it enough. I had to undo the 2 x 12mm bolts which hold the filter mount, to get a good grip to unscrew the filter .

I had this and solved it. Take off Mass Air Flow Meter and spray a whole can of WURTH CONTACT WASH AND CLEAN. Whilst you are spraying on the MAF, put a plastic bahind it so that you can collect the spray int it. Put the MAF in the bag with this contact cleaner spray and leave it there for a couple of hours. Blow dry it with compressed air and mount it again back. That's it, !!

My 1992 nissan terrano blows to much black smoke .how to fix this .some say i have unbirt fuel?


if diesel and turbo , check turbo operation of for holes in the intercooler
if turbo or naturally aspirated check/ replace injector tips as black smoke indicators squirting and not atomizing
if petrol check for excessive fuel pressure, faulty injectors , leaking injector seal
regardless of petrol or diesel --black smoke indicates incorrect air / fuel ratio ( too much fuel) so injectors, intercooler, bad turbo or blocked air cleaner are all candidates for the fault

WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU CHANGED/CLEANED THE EXTERNAL FUEL FILTER...IF IT HAS ONE? ALSO CHECK THE AIR CLEANER AND ALL ASPIRATING EQUIPMENT FOR BLOCKAGE.
SOMETIMES, MICE, CHIPMUNKS, SQUIRRELS, ETC...WILL BUILT A NEST IN AN INTAKE HOUSE, THE FILTER BOX, AND RESTRICT AIR/FUEL FLOW. CHECK THESE FIRST

Landcruiser early 80 turbo diesel wont start


Presuming it is swinging (starter turning engine) and the glow plugs are working well and diesel is clean, the other alternatives are a drop in fuel pressure through the injectors which is necessary to ignite the diesel, or engine compression. If the compression is too low the diesel will not ignite. Test the injectors and compression across al cylinders. Being a turbo the compression si already lowered and the slightest drop will have an effect. Happy hunting.

1997 ford contour- battery sometimes drains overnight. car runs ok at low speeds but loses power at higher speeds. after pulling over for a few minutes and idling, its ok to run about 65mph for about 2...


These are 2 different issues. When the vehicle starts to slow at high speed, remove the gas cap and see what happens, if the issue goes away, replace the gas cap and check the gas tank vent. If it does not go away, check the catalytic converter to see if it is plugged. The issue with the draining battery has to be tested by hooking a meter in series with one battery post and set it to measure AMPS. With the car off and the dome light disabled, check to see what the reading is, then start pulling fuses one at a time till you find the one that makes the biggest drop in the meter reading.

Possibly the "Mass airflow sensor". I had a similar problem, basically the car behaved like it didn't have a turbo and was really slow. Unfortunately the Mass airflow sensor is expensive, about AU$800. Only failed once several years ago. Hope this helps.
