Hi All Wondering if anyone out there owns a 03 GU 4.2 TDi & can tell me what part No-s their genuine nissan oil filters are and are they both the same. Always thought they were different ??
Im running 2X 15208-43G00 but have just noticed on a cold start it wil take 8 or 9 seconds for oil pressure to build, you can even hear the change in the note of the motor when pressure builds. My old GQ,s done this but only for a short length of time.

Thanks in Advance
Steve.

Steve,
I havent followed it thru properly yet but, yes my 03 TD42ti has the two different filters. It must not be that clear though as Nissan parts dept said they need VIN number to spec oil filter requirements, not just year model.
One has a valve I think to stop oil draining out when turned off.

Thanks Guys Nissan gave me the wrong filters as well, will give the dealer a ring & see if I can find someone who knows what they are on about & get to the bottom of this. Its not real good when you have stuff all pressure on start up.

Cheers Steve

Mine is a 9/03 build and just bought filters last week. Both are the same part number 15208-43G00 $18 each including tax. The price difference between genuine and aftermarket is negligible. Buy OEM and avoid any risk. As far as oil pressure building it has never been an issue.

I used to own a 2000 model 4.2 td which had 2 different filters. One of which had a back pressure valve i think?

Madcow Just got off the phone to a service manager I know ,your right 2X filters with the same part No as you noted, he told me to put a stopwatch on the start up which ticked up 6.67 seconds for the light to go out. He said this was normal even up to 10 Secs was quite normal its also very cold here at the moment making the engine oil a tad thicker. I only use OEM filters too not worth the risk when you do your own servicing
Mine is a 12/03 build with 26,000ks on it
