After 4 week's we finally have the car back. $2,700.00
Nissan payed for the motor, we had to pay for labour and extra's. It was running when picked up, so thought all was well. Got home, went to start it and it takes about 5 minutes of winding before she spurts to life. Going back in tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!
Just as well the old Holden keeps going on to get us about!

Cheer's,
Pud and Barb.

Makes one wonder how much the per hour charge is. Perhaps when putting a new motor in one of those you have to start at the rear diff!
Now sounds like a serious air leak into the fuel system.
As Ned sed, such is life.
good luck from now on kesh

I had a head gasket problem and when all was fitted back together the next day I had problems starting engine
Nissan assist (RACV) attended and primed injector pump and started OK
Took the vehicle back to dealer and
the end result was a faulty gasket was fitted and the fuel sustem was sucking air
Gasket replaced and problem fixed

Good luck

Your not far wrong Kesh.
You have to start just short of the rear diff. Remove rear tail shaft, transfer case, gearbox and then you can start on the drivers side engine mount. Once you get that out you can start on the spaghetti wiring.
Leave at least a day to just remove it.
You can do it without removing gearbox but it puts alot of stress on the engine mounts which usually stuffs them.
I am not being sarcastic but there is heaps of labour involved in working on these things.

That's terrible guys, I really feel for you.
My wife's Jackeroo has covered for my 4.2 Patrol on more than one occassion during the hotter months up north as well. Sad that we need to vent these things as I believe it should not happen. Worst part is it wasn't even a Friday arvo rush job.

Good luck tomorrow. Trevor.

G'day Pud and Barb,
Bloody hell, you must be getting pretty pi$$ed-off with this rubbish by now. I'll give Pud a call tomorrow to see what the latest news is.

I was stopped at the lights a couple of days ago in my trusty 60 Series T/ Diesel when a 3 ltr Nissan pulled up beside me & the driver was looking at my vehicle. I thought that he thought that I was driveing a bucket of sh-t, when in reality he was probably thinking I wish mine was as reliable as that !

At least you know you've got the only Tojo worth having.
They went downhill big time after the 60 series.
