I have a NISSAN PATROL 3 litre turbo diesel automatic (January 2004) with 12,000 kilometres.
The book says 30 front & 36 back (psi) tyre pressure for normal driving (is this correcT?)
When starting first time in the morning the oil pressure light takes a few seconds to go off (oil is draining back over-night).
When re-starting after it has been running the oil light goes off immediately.
Is this a fault with the filter or a fault with NISSANS.
I previously owned Commodores and the oil light always went off immediately.
Thanks very much for your help

Ian, my 3.0 patrol does the same, so does my mates 4.2 diesel landcruiser, so did my 3F petrol landcruiser, I don't think it's much to worry about.

As for tyre pressures, well, you've opened pandora's box here !!

I run 38 front & 36 rear for normal around town or highway, and up to 38 front & 42 rear when loaded + towing the camper.

Others will say different, but that's my two bobs worth anyway.

oil pressure light would be normal, of course the oild drains back o/night just look for variations in what it normally does and dont compare it to other vehicles because they are- well other vehicles. Tyre pressures sound pretty standard but are for mum taking the kids to school, you need to work out suitable tyre pressures for your conditions ie fully loaded crossing the simpson or just you and a mate cruising Stockton

Yeah my Rocky's oil pressure light did the same, so does my Surf. You'll find it takes longer to go out as you get closer to your oil change.
