I have a 2008 Nissan X-trail T31. It has CVT transmission with the 'Manual' change option. Lately, when shifting to manual mode it does not change, but continues in the CVT mode (Auto). The dash does not indicate it's in the manual mode either. Any Ideas?

It’s usually the engine mount on my Xtrails I’ve had.

Engine mounts sounds right to me, I've had the same trouble years ago on a Mitsubishi Magna.

I changed the battery in my 2018 Nissan Xtrail and had the same problem. It was towed to the dealership and took a week for them to tell me the computer is blown in it. $500 for a new one and none in Australia. Good luck!

I have a 2009 diesel Xtrail purchased secondhand a year ago with 169000kms (advertised as 2011 but thats a whole other issue lol). about 8 months ago the car's turbo started to scream horrifically i assume the bearing went in the turbo. i have bought a reconditioned one but none of my mates can install it as there are 2 mangy stud bolts that cannot be got to to finalise the install. apparently its an engine out job which will cost around 3.5k!!!!! anyone have any suggestions i cannot afford anything like this. Engine fail light and dpf light on. car stills drives mostly normal just has terrible screaming under full boost. plz help! <3

sounds like a build up of carbon in the turbo,they scream when the bearings are loaded with carbon It is not a faulty bearing as some people assume the turbos need to be cleaned out every 10,000kms Get it serviced

My 2021 X-Trail developed shuddering in the engine and significant power loss as well as markedly increased fuel consumption around 180 K km. All injectors replaced on advice of mechanics, but still has a slight engine shudder and associated increased fuel consumption. Any ideas as to cause and treatment?

Could still be electrical, but a compression rest might be worthwhile though the mileage is not great.

Unless the idle speed is too low (should be around 850 -900 RPM), might be the CVT electronics (but I'm not a mechanic!).

T32.I (2014-2017)

I own a NT32 Nissan ex-trail 2014 model gas fuel . Over the last six months, I have noticed that on veering to the right when over taking, there is a sudden rough, jerking, when demands are made to increase speeds , I have to decelerate and the condition slowly corrects it self, it poses somewhat of a danger, since i am now in the fast lane. This is also experienced sometimes with normal driving, when I approaches an incline at speeds between 25- 40 kmp.
Can you say what may be the reasons for this condition? I have changed transmission oil, filter etc. I have cleaned the fuel pump.

If it has a CVT gearbox I'd suspect a problem with the transmission -to - driven wheel linkage, maybe just a worn drives shaft one side, but I'm not a qualified mechanic and I avoid CVT's, they're an abomination!

I have a 2012 X-Trail ST (4X4) T31. The radio stopped working. The light is on the radio but no sound

This won't be much help, but obviously there is power to the device, so I'd look at the antenna connection inside the unit and between it and the antenna. Itself. Not easy to do though I'd imagine.

I have a X Trail T32 2018 model with the 4WD version. It has travelled about 75000 kms and been serviced very regularly.
When I decelerate at about 20 kms/hr there is a "clunk" that appears to come from the transmission area.
It sound very much like slackness in the Drivetrain when the load on the driveshaft is taken of by decelerating.
I am concerned as there are many instances of transmission issues/problems with this model X Trail.
Would it be covered by warranty?

Hi all, I have a 2013 T31 XTrail. For the life of me, I cannot find the owners manual and I recently had the battery changed, which means I need to enter a code for the radio. Is there some way I can find this out? If I have the radio serial number would Nissan be able to help? Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.

I have a Japanese import 2010 x-trail 2.0ltr turbo diesel manual, the car has never missed a beat until time to sell it. I have serviced it regularly and never given any problems. However after showing the car to some people and letting them test drive it, turns out they removed and discarded the air filter for some reason, now it has trouble starting and when it does start has no power until 2000 rpm. Very sluggish from what it was before being meddled with. No lights on the dash to indicate a problem. Any ideas on what's causing the low performance?
