Buy A Patrol? Let us evaluate it for you. Free of charge.

Hi Everyone.
If anyone is interested in buying a Patrol and would like to have it evaluated before purchase, give Graham a call.
Graham will check it out from top to bottom, inside and out and give you his professional opinion.
Ask the seller to bring it to us, and you can tag along of course, and get first hand information on possible further expenses.
If the seller refuses a technical inspection by an independent party always ask WHY? :think:

We offer this service free of charge to forum members ... or potential forum members.

Enjoy your day and happy trolling! QQQ

How to Post Low Resolution Pictures!!

Heres a tip guys - large format pictures are really a nuisance on the forum, and besides taking forever to download its also expensive if you have a limited data package.
If you wantto download smaller size (less data) pictures then do the following (this is the way I do it and its very simple):
1. Select the pictures you want to post in the internet, then right click the mouse,
2. on the window that pops up click 'send to'
3. then click 'mail recipient'
4. a window will pop up and ask you what resolution you want - select 'medium', then click attach.
5. a email create page will pop up with the new format low resolution pictures you selcted as an attachment.
6. Copy the pictures from the mail and place in appropriate folder for placing on the forum as per usual process.

Re: Noisy 4.8 engine

Hi Paulo
I have spoken to Graham husband & mechanic) about your problem and his comments are as follows :
1. 4.8 Patrol is a skim head motor so no tappets to adjust or set.
2. You problem is most probably low oil pressure and he agrees with the engine flush (use the actual engine flush product here to loosen gunk/sludge), run the car hot, drain oil (up to you if you want to reflush with cheap oil) and replace with new oil filter & good quality, relative viscosity oil.
3. Graham also recommends a 15W40 oil. (AGIP truck or truck plus also a good oil with similar properties to Caltex Delo 400).\
Hope this helps.
Chow for now

Re: Steering Rattle

Kobus, the steering damper cannnot fix the problem, only hide it.

However, it could very easily just be a wheel balance problem.

Patrol dash removal

Nissan refuted or nearly refuted my claim on the dashboard removal and their argument at the time was that the PO missed an oil service. I never knew being late for an oil service is the main cause for a bubbling on a dash.

I decided to remove it myself.

Remove 2 plastic circle plugs on steerwheel side! With torx undo airbag. Unclip airbag by lifting black locating thingy" remove hooter" steering controls wire.
Straighten wheel and remove
Under wiper arm cowl is 3 philips! Remove ring around key, unclip bottom form top and remove. Bottom piece clips around steering shaft.

Undo 2 philips holding signal and wiper arms in place and depress clip at the back of unit and move iut of the way.

Re: Dual Battery 4.8...Need your views please.

Kan ons 'n paar fotos daarvan sien Boats?

Sien hierdie - ek hoop dit gee ten minste 'n idee.

Hierdie is die voorkant van die battery (links kan jy die running board bracket sien en bo die battery se positiewe terminal is 'n rubber patch om the keer dat daar enige verassende sparks onstaan):

Meer detail van waar dit aan die cross member and chassis vasbout:

en hierdie is van agter gesien:

ook van agter, 'n effe ander hoek:

Re: 2008 4.8 for sale

HI Guys.
Always a pleasure to give my opinion on these fantastic vehicles.
Have noticed lately, sale guys don't like me too much about 5 minutes into a check-up! Especially the chance takers!

Re: TB45E Knocking when starting ...and other bad performanc

Hi irfaanharris

Herewith Graham's advice:...

Problem 1: Check basic setting on TPS switch, must be at point 0.50mA. Idle compensation valve must be set to 20%. Distributor must be set to 5 degrees. All must be set when car is at running temperature.

Problem 2: This should sorted by correctly settings for problem 1.

Problem 3: Knock sensor is on the right side of the engine under the intake manifold but a electronic diagnostic test can check if this is faulty.

P.S. All petrol Patrols should be running on the highest octane fuel available in this country or even better put in Octane boost on every tank of fuel.

Thanks, hope this helps. If not, an if you're in the area, bring it in, and I will do these checks for you.

Re: River trip 6 tot 10 aug 2015

Dankie aan almal wat die trip moontlik gemaak het, en ook vir almal wat dit so 'n wonderlikke ervaring gemaak het. Regtig 'n wonderlikke groep mense gewees.
Ek kan nie wag vir die volgende een nie.

Hier is so paar van my muk-en-druk foto's...

P.S. my brandstof verbruik vir die trip was 5.3km/l - wat n +/-600km round trip vanaf huis na rivier en terug in sluit...
