Re: Nissan Patrol 3.0TD 2005 model

With regards to the non starting, it could quite possibly be the fuel has seeped back and you need to prime it first using the lift pump on top of the diesel filter. It should not be too cold yet in East London for it to be glowplugs. If it still does not start take it as a warning and walk away. I ...

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Hi Oscar and welcome to the forum. One thing that has not been mentioned in the posts is rust. I see the truck comes from the Ugu area and its gets quite salty there. I live across the road from the beach in Hibberdene and my previously immaculate Volvo started to show signs of rust within a year of...

Re: Import Vehicle into Namibia

Also speak to Johaan from Springbok imports in Pretoria. He knows a great deal and also knows people in the business. He imported my Nissan Patrol into SA from the UK and seemed to be familiar with the rules of local export as well.

Re: Shadecloth cover radiator

On a trip to Drotskys caves I drove through long grass growing on the middle manetjie and could not believe how blocked my radiator became from the seeds. At the caves I cleaned the radiator as best as I could and fitted cheese cloth that I had, from under the bonnet down to the bumper to prevent fu...

Re: Service Manuals

Hi Ian, thank you for posting the service manuals into your drop box. Being a bit thick here, but I don't seem to be able to work out how to transfer from the drop box to my PC. If you could help me with that, you will be teaching this old dog a new trick.

Many thanks

Re: 2013 3.0 CRD Patrol

Thanks Phillip, I have done the 3" pipe from the turbo, although I did have one baffle fitted, and have a madman monitor. Did notice quite a big power difference already but think I will get it chipped too to get the fast spooling under control.

Re: 2013 3.0 CRD Patrol

This might have been brought up before on this forum, but is it worthwhile to chip a 2005 3.0? I was always under the impression that it was not, but that was something I read many years ago on the OZ forum
