Re: Patrol 4.8 Starter

A quick update. Putting the starter back was even easier. The steps I followed were as follows: 1. I held the starter in place from the bottom with my right hand while screwing in the bottom bolt. This was just tight enough so it is mostly flush at the top as well. I gave it a few turns with the spa...

Re: Patrol 4.8 Starter

Ian, I just had another thought, I recall my ratchet head was too big to fit. I ended up using the breaker bar which needs a lot less space. Perhaps that explains why it was easy to get in there.

Re: Patrol 4.8 Starter

Perhaps that is a difference between the 4.5 and 4.8? I removed the top bolt from the top of the engine. The wrench could only turn ever so slightly, just enough so I could undo the bolt with the spanner. Once the bolt was loose enough I used just the extension. I have also read of people coming in ...

Re: Mad Man Coolant Level Detector Install

Very nice Ian. Thanks for the write up. My father lost an engine some years ago due to a coolant leak so I can really see the value in this. All it takes is a few minutes of not paying attention and the engine is gone.

Re: Patrol 4.8 Starter

Total length of the extension is 12.5 cm. I measured it so I can buy my own for the same reason. My neighbour was kind enough to lend me a selection of his favourite extensions.

Re: Patrol 4.8 Starter

I was a bit apprehensive in tackling this task as I've read it is a bit of a pain to get out, but fortunately it was a quick 15 minute job. 20190113 Nissan Patrol 4.8 Starter motor and solenoid.jpg The little extension did the trick. The wrench and extension just needed to loosen the bolt so the spa...

Patrol 4.8 Starter

At the security checkpoint at the Gautrain station I was asked to turn the ignition off and start the car again. The off part worked out pretty well. Unfortunately my toolbox was at home as I needed the space for the jump seats. We had loads of kids to transport this holiday so I had no boot for too...

What were the issues that it was decided that the pump needed replacing?
Hi Graham, no issues, but it was picked up while remapping the chip on the dyno.
