Who rebuilt the engine? obviously someone who did not know what they were doing. Take it back to who ever did the engine & get a refund

Hello, I have just bought a Nissan X-trail T31 2011, and each day when I start the car the clock and all other dash information (e.g. fuel economy, distant travelled) resets. Any help would be really appreciated.

That happens when the battery is weak or not fully charged you need a new battery or charge the battery mine did the exact same thing

I thought that might be it. It was confusing me because the keeps starting and the radio stations are still logged. Is it just easier to get a new one rather than have it looked at?

Hi everyone I have a 09 xtrail turbo diesel. Was driving fine. One day out of the blue it lost all power. The rpm won’t go over 2000 and it blows black smoke when reving on idle. and as soon as I put it in drive it will stall. the engine light and air sensor codes with diff pressure sensor code came up so I replaced the both of the sensors and cleared the codes. and now it’s giving me 8 more codes. And still having the same problem? Any help would be much appreciated! Local mechanic and dealerships telling me to replace all the sensors that the codes are giving but I’m sure that it will not do anything as the diff pressure sensor was not faulty to begin with but I replaced it anyways. Thanks :)

I have a nt31, and when turning to the left I am hearing a grinding sound, sometimes while driving straight as well, but not as bad. If the 4 wheel is engaged, it drives with no noise at all. Any advice or suggestions as to what that might be?

It could be anything from wheel bearing, upper/lower control arm bushes, ball joints, sway bar bushes, shocks, worn brake pads, loose brake caliper,or some thing worn/ loose on the front suspension... suggestion take it a mechanic or front end specialist & get them to check everything

2008 TDi. 180k service. Mechanic (who had never serviced a diesel Xtrail) says turbo could be about to go because he found oil on air filter. Seems to be common problem though? Anybody had this issue? Cheers

danny

the turbo seals are a common problem with all the diesel xtrails rubber seals & heat causes them to shrink then they leak oil even the newer ones are the same that does not necessarily mean you need a new turbo depending on how much oil it leaked & what/if any damage done internally just replace the seals, the seals should be replaced approx every 30.000kms

I have a 2011 t31

I’m getting little acceleration when starting, then when it goes into second gear power comes back

I’ve cleaned the maf which helped it idle better but still slow on start up.

I’ve topped up the transmission fluid which was a bit low

No engine lights are coming on, the only other symptom is fuel consumption is sitting at 14 when it used to around 10

When cold and in first gear I can put my foot to the floor with no revs... Or only up about 1800 then after travelling about 4-500 meters the revs pick up so I don’t think it’s the trans...

Thanks
Justin

it needs a service mine did the same thing i just simply took it my local independent mechanic he changed the spark plugs, adjusted the throttle sensor & changed the filters & serviced the transmission. All good now

micheal

sounds like its about to go into limp mode mine did the exact same thing Nissan was never servicing it properly & cut corners never ever changed spark plugs, filters, or anything else but always charged for it. I ended up taking it to the local mechanic & he sorted it out in under 1 hour. Get it serviced...

You may need to go to a dealer so they can "re-code" the radio. Not sure if a auto electrician or mechanic can 're-code' them!

Have 2010 XTRAIL T31, recently did engine flush , after driving about 40km, low oil warning light came on despite full engine oil. The car went on limp mode,with hard brake pedal.Mechanic says engine needs rebuild.Can any one suggest what could be the problem?

Take the car to a dealer. HOWEVER ( this is my proviso) they MAY NOT be able to decipher the codes. Had a problem with my 2009 X-Trail with the engine light coming on intermittently, with the dealer (and Nissan Technical Support) unable to establish what the problem was. This problem started with the CVT (transmission) not having been checked and re-filled during the last 4 major services done by a (so called) 'proper' mechanic!
