Purchased car new from sydney city nissan in 2015 (2014 model) the car has had all its services and has only done 66014 km and the cvt transmission has gone from what i have read online this is a common and known problem with nissan what has any one else experienced this- the repair cost will be in the 7000.00 for a new gear box installed we need this car for our disabled son to get around in really disappointed from what the mechanics have been saying should last over 100,000 km


you shouldn't be paying $7000 for a gearbox/ instalment! at most it would be 2500... Search around for another mechanic. That just doesn't sound right.


thanks have looked around but unfortunately looks like the price is correct

I was wondering if you could put a N15 motor in a n16 pulsar coz I need to do an engine swap on my 2001 pulsar


What engine do you currently have in the N16? Is it a QG18DE? If you are 100% you wanna do an engine swap, i would suggest swapping it to a QR25DE engine! I personally don't recommend engine swapping a pulsar, unless the engine has serious mechanical problems that can't be resolved. Sometimes doing something as simple as replacing the cool air intake or doing an oil change (servicing it pretty much lol) could get you as much power as you need.

Hope this helps you out :)

Nissan Pulsar 1997 hatch , N15. How to replace windscreen washer water pump? Is is difficult?

I have a 2003 Nissan Pulsar sedan I’ve had for three years and in the last six months the idle has become a bit rough and I need a lower gear than normal to get going around corners as well it makes a slight shuddering sound. It’s power has decreased also. What would be the problem?

Just bought a 1998 Nissan N15 series. Got told blinkers were working before previous owner changed alternator due to car dying. But now they’re not working. Anybody have any ideas on what it could be. Put the old one back in and still nothing. Whether that would be the problem or not, just needing some light shed.


hi if the globes are blown then the regulator on the alternator is supplying an over voltage exceeding the standard amount this may cause the lights to blow also it can cause other globe's to blow too .(this was the same issue on a Toyota Corolla which experienced the same problem ).
try checking the Output voltage of the alternator on the battery terminals if its around 15v or over then that is the problem.
if the globes are not blown check signal fuse if its blown could be just a spike when alternator connected that is just a matter of replacing the fuse I think it would be either red 10amps or blue 15amps. if not check indicator relay
put hazard switch on if you hear it clicking it's not the relay
have a crack at those causes it would give you an idea what it mite be last is a long shot but a wiring issue but I don't believe it would be that because it hasn't been tampered with.
good luck post us what u find out

Niranjana · Pulsar N15 (1995-1999)

Hey, i have nissan b17 2015 model and recently got a problem in CVT, having a call to nissan dealership they said, will send an enquiry about your issue to headoffice and if they approve will replace it.

Now they said its approved under goodwill, but you need to pay for labour cost which is $1050. I’m happy yo pay for this price as new cvt cost around $8000.

If anyone has face this issue did they pay for labour cost ?

I have a Nissan pulsar 2001 model that I'm buying off a friend who had a nasty gutter accident she hit the gutter pretty hard and now the front driver's side wheel touches the back of the front wheel arch what would be the problem and can it be fixed


everything can be fixed
I would be removing the wheels both front sides so u can inspect what is bent most likely swing arm bracket or something around that area


Well, the answer is simple. There are two things that could cause this. First is the lower ball joint. This helps the wheel turn left and right, if this was broken then the wheel can become displaced even to the extent of flopping outside the front fender/guard.
The second item is the lower control arm. This is in a "A" shape and if either front or rear of the open end of the A has been broken off or the mountings, then the wheel will fold into the guard as you have described. Also if this has happened then the swaybar link will be broken as well. All these parts are easy to get and cheap. Finding a mechanic to do the work can be costly.
