Every morning when I start my van it keeps tumbling for about 5-10 seconds and then starts followed by white smoke. If however I turn the ignition and leave it for about 10-15 seconds it starts without tumbling . Suggested wasnthat one of the injectors is dribbling fuel overnight . Can it be a pump?

I want to ad the female trailer plug to my 2017 NP300 petrol bakkie. I see inside the engine compartment in the fuse box that there is no fuse at the taillight space as marked on the lid. There is also only 1 contact pin which is strange for me. What is that for? I having problems connecting a new trailor plug. The fuse for the tail light inside the cabin keep fusing when I turn the light switch on. I have cut all the wires at the loom going to the rear and did not connect any new wires yet, but fuse keep blowing.

I have a Nissan Np300 2.5tdi manual transmission failing to exceed a speed of 80km/h even when driving on the highway and even when I have reached (selected ) the final (fifth) gear it can not exceed the speed of 80km/h, it also seems like loosing power. I have replaced the fuel, oil and air filter with new ones but there is no change at all. What can be the possible causes of this problem?

Answers

Might be overdrive solenoid sticking on prematurely otherwise cold be many things. Have you checked the turbo boost? Check intercooler flow and turbo hoses for leaks, splits or loose connections. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Check also your crank sensor Muzi from South Africa

My 2004 ZD30 doesn't go into gear when engine is on. What could be the problem. Recently had the gear box checked and nothing was found to be wrong. Could it be the Diff perhaps?

Answers

Can you select the gears OK when the engine is switched off? If you can, then the clutch is not releasing when the engine is running. If you cannot select gears even when the engine is off then you have a gear / cable linkage or selector problem. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Cylinder head may be cracked, remove it and get it pressure tested. Also, to cause the trouble initially, engine may have been overheated and caused cylinder head to warp, need to get cylinder head surfaced to restore machined finish. Hugh from City of Glasgow
