I need help. My 2010 D40 Auto has developed a power problem and my mechanic is loosing sleep over it. Two days ago it went in for a 80K service and all was well with the car. When I picked it up the mechanic said that it had a low power problem, my reply was yes but I carry a heavy load.
It wasnt until I drove it out of the workshop that I realised what he was talking about. Honestly a Fred Flintstone car has more grunt.
A light appears on the right side of the dash apparently meaning centre management attention [computer]. He has cleaned the exhaust sensors and quite a few other things but to no avail.
Any input much

Sounds like the mechanic mucked something up!

Take it to a Nissan Dealer and get the computer codes checked out. Or someone else who can diagnose it properly.

Hi Notso
That was my first opinion, but as he said all he did that could relate to a problem was add a Penrite injector additive [ which he has used 2 times before on my service ] and change the oil

Hi Wilko

If the Penrite additive went in the fuel tank it may have caused the fuel filter to become blocked.

Hi Phil
No I dont think this is the problem, as I went for a drive with him this arvo and all was good up until about 1K down the road , and then the light came on and we limped back to the workshop
Thanks
Wilko

Get the thing diagnosed, it should tell you what's causing the ECU light.

On most modern diesels it is simple to fit a scangauge or ultrgauge. Any problems arise and the code appears on the gauge. Refer the code to the dealer or google it and you have your problem. Easy and often means that a quick solution may be found to the problem..

I agree with Notso. The dealers mechanics should be able to look at the computer and see why that light is on. It may be the Penrite etc but then again it may not.

Could be a bad batch of additive. We had it once before. ( different brand ) 18 cars didn't make it home in one day. Cost a small fortune in towing and taxis. Drain the tank, flush it. Re-fill, change fuel filter and run it through.

we had a similar problem - took Nissan 3 weeks to finally fix it - re-calibrate the fuel pump
