I have a Nissan vannete van RF6 2008 model, diesel engine. It is producing heavy black smoke and not pulling(power loss). When you start it off the sound being produced is like one injector is not working(or as if there is air lock) Diagnosis machine test shows no codes to injectors whatsoever. At first it would do the power failure when its loaded. What might be the problem?

Hi I have a Nissan vanette cargo 2.3 diesel motorhome. I can smell gas only when driving ( not gasoline as in fuel but an actual gas smell. ) Does anyone know what this might be? Could it be connected with the gearbox which is very clunky? As it is a motorhome we are carrying a propane gas canister which is switched off plus we only smell it when driving do j think it's linked to s mechanical engine fault. Anyone got any ideas ? Thanks

My Nissan vannet diesel had the dpf and check engine light on. Numerous attempts to regenerate failed prompting it's removal the van is really smoking. Is this the best option? Can it be replaced or cleaned?

Answers

If you have properly tried the dpf regeneration then it has passed its date and needs changing... it can be replaced. However.. once you've completed the regen.. have you cleared fault codes from the ecu ? R Evans from Caerphilly

Nissan Vanette

At what Kms do you change gear box oil for automatic transmission diesel engine.

Answers

Iga, you can change it as often as you like but 60-80000 miles it will benefit from a change.. changing the trans fluid you will also be able to get an indication of any wear that may be developing.. metal filings in drained fluid.. colouration or smell of the fluid may indicate a problem developing (but colouration and smell could also just indicate that the fluid needed changing) R Evans from Caerphilly
