Hmmm, brilliant details you've given here.. but unfortunately I don't know that engine well enough to even guess on this one, so I'll leave it to someone else who might know.

Good luck fixing the probs mate.

Suspension lifts can be done relatively cheaply if you look around for the right parts. Try sourcing some IRONMAN suspension parts, they do a lot of stuff for older model vehicles. I've just done a 2 inch lift all around my Pathfinder and apart from my having uprated suspension (about 25% more solid...

Hmmm, I was sure I'd replied to this one. Mate, take it to a mechanic who's licenced/registered for fitting things like that, you need to be 100% certain that you've got RATED bolts to hold in a harness, otherwise it runs the risk of failing when you need it most. And the cost, even if it's a couple...

Yeah, a transmission flush also requires a nice new filter, or you run the risk of it all ending up like mud very quickly.

The transmission 'could' also be responsible for the whine, but once you've got it serviced you'll know on that for sure.

Hi mate, I am going to guess that it's an auto? If it's an Auto then get the gearbox serviced ASAP! Basically, if it is shifting rough then the gearbox needs a good service. The whining you hear could be a number of things, one, the transmission, if it's either on the way out or if it's short on flu...

Doing a body lift is a false economy... as you get no real extra clearance as your chassis is still going to be what you get stuck on. You'll also have to modify your bumper bars (or bull bars), and quite a few other bits & pieces. You'd be far better off doing a suspension lift. Though if you've go...

Hi mate, Changing the tappet cover (valve cover) gasket is fairly straight forward, however first go and give all the bolts around the top a nip up with a ratchet (careful not to over-tighten though), then degrease the entire engine bay and give it a jetwash.. wait a week and see if it's leaked any ...

I agree about body lifts, not a big fan of them myself.. the body wasn't really made to be raised, raising the suspension does enough to change your centre of gravity as it is.. but if it's a 2 or 3 inch lift it is enough to be useful, but not too much. Be careful with a 3 inch lift (or anything hig...

Hey, looks like a nice truck mate...
Give it a 2 inch lift and you'll find it's much more capable, and it won't cost you a fortune to do that.

Go out and make it work for it's keep ;)

Welcome to the forum mate.

Hey mate, sounds like a perfect truck for you, though you've got to go out and use the 4WD on it, even if it's only a few little tracks here and there, otherwise you might as well have gotten a 2WD truck ;) Anyway, always nice to see someone else enjoying a Nissan.. You are definitely right about th...

Sorry, not knowing US models too well, is it a Petrol or Diesel? The engine changing tone is just that the clutch has stopped the engine driving stuff around, so it'll change note slightly, unless it rattles, or whines I shouldn't worry about it too much. You said about the last service, is there a ...

Change your fuel filter ASAP, also change your Air Filter.. and if it's a petrol model (don't think you get a diesel in the US do you?) I'd suggest running it on high octane petrol for a few weeks (I run mine on it full time but it's a completely different reason out here). As you've just got it I'd...

hey BC, My suggestion would be to go to your nearest parts specialist (or search for one on my search engine) and order yourself a battery isolator and put that in, cut the ability for anything to drain the battery, if that doesn't work then the battery is definitely stuffed (ie if it's still flat)....

Nah, while the foxes look quite pretty seeing them after starving a bit and when they sneak around your farm to find food they look ugly as hell.. However, dingos are a very pretty looking dog, generally about the same size as a normal dog, and if they are well fed (and out here at the moment after ...
