Re: Forum Sticker

Craig, don't post it here. I see you are in Durban, so rather send JohnBoyZA a PM with your details. The Jhb and Pta guys can probably get from Tinus as we tend to see each other quite often. That helps with the distribution up here, as it will be a logistic nightmare to individually post these to e...

Re: Nissan Thermostat

There is a guy here called Marinus, who runs a company that brings in parts from Australia ( Terrain Tamer ), and believe it or not ... sometimes his prices are better than what I can get from my local spares shop, like brake pads for example, so maybe give mein a PM and ask him for a price. It will...

Re: Nissan Thermostat

Hmmm... yeah pics will definitively help. but that radiator cap only needs to just not work 100% for the temps to go off their rocker. There is of course another potential fault. Your viscous fan or hub may not be working properly. I've replaced mine twice already, and fan blades. I have actually se...

Re: Nissan Thermostat

The other solution you could try is Graham from G-Tech. He is in Valhalla though, but he works on MANY forum members Patrols here. The man is a GURU when it comes to petrol patrols ( well he owns 1... actually 2 now I think) and knows his stuff. and Michael here is the diesel guru, so either one can...

Re: Nissan Thermostat

I'd replace the rad cap first off with the correct temp cap, and definitively concider that it could be that the radiator is blocked up with the rusty bits and efficiency is down to nothing. I would do a good clean out of the whole cooling system first, maybe at a place like Silvertons and do the fr...

Re: Nissan Thermostat

Not the best thing on a Patrol. I know the TD42 diesels are a little more water temp sensitive, but it will take a hell of a lot longer to get up to operating temp.

Not sure what the part number is for the petrol Patrol. Maybe someone on here can help with that info
