Re: Nissan service quality improving?

I cannot vouch for the service quality, but their pricing is totally mad, insane, ridiculous and over the top! A set of 4 (Four) (Ja, net vier) injectors for a 2010 Pathfinder is R35k. That is about 20 to 25% of the value of the vehicle. It seems that that injector is the same for all YD 25 motors, ...

Re: Looking for my first Patrol up to 100k

I think for that kind of money you will have to look at at something like the Safari 2.8 from the 80s or if you are lucky a GQ 4.2 from the 90s. You probably will not find a decent Y61 4.5 or a Y61 4.2D, but you WILL NOT find a going 4.8 for that money. A wreck, maybe. Sorry to be a bearer of bad ne...

Re: Forum Sticker

Tinus, Ek soek een asb, maar ek weet nie hoe hulle lyk nie, so ek kan nie vir jou vertel watter kleur ek soek nie. Is dit die een bo-aan hierdie bladsy, Afrika met PATROL daarin geskryf en in silwer/grys? Omdat my voertuig silwer is, sal ek dalk 'n witte soek, wat dink jy? Dankie Ek PM jou my adres

Re: Water Leak

What pressure is the cap set for? Normally Nissan's is 0.9 bar, but my Nissan Trained Mechanic says the Patrol requires a 1.1 bar cap. Just also check on that the cap has two rubber seals. The lower one (as the cap sits on the radiator) is smaller and seals the radiator until it reaches the point wh...

Re: '95 SFA Hilux 2.4

It is very nice and will go for a very good price. It does however have two very serious drawbacks 1. It will use more fuel than a 4.8 Patrol (tongue in cheek, but those motors are very thirsty and are therefore HEAVY on Fuel!!) 2. And the real concern, if it gets even a small bump, the insurance wi...

Re: Botswana / Zimbabwe safari fuel consumption

I was hoping for around 12 to 13lt per 100 at around 100kph, so I was reasonably happy with what I got. On the trip home, I travelled a bit faster and paid for it in extra fuel. That was not really a concern, as I was trying out the higher speed to see how it would affect the consumption. This is my...

Botswana / Zimbabwe safari fuel consumption

We left here on Sunday 24th June and went via Khama Rhino Sanctuary, Francistown, Pandamatenga, Hwange National Park, Victoria Falls, Chobe (Kasane) and back home via Fra...

In Jhb, McNaughtans, corner Von Willigh Ext, under the M2 highway. They go for about R120 each. Comes in various lenghts from about 180mm to 1m. My 1.0m one pumped up to 0.25 bar cost me about R139 about 2 years ago. Cheapest prices, some people will rip you off, mostly the spares shops!! http://mcn...

Re: Installing manual hubs

I did the same mod with my GQ Patrol about 7 or 8 years ago. Commercial Auto Spares who I bought the manual hub locks from for about R750 for a set for my Terrano, did not have the HLs for the Patrol and I eventually found an engineering works in Langlaagte who imported them for the Patrols from Bra...
