I noticed that a few people have been talking about this filter in the injector pump. Its located at the banjo bolt on top of the pump. Once you take the bolt out u can see it if you hold it to the light. If you cant that means its dirty Since I clean mine I have no black smoke at start up and a bit more power. I have a 1990 high roof Gq Nissan Patrol and it has it on these models. Some thinks its only on 1992/94 onwards. It doesnt say much about them in workshop manuals. Saves heaps of money 5mins only to clean.

Thanks to those who put me on to this little filter, REALY GOOD INFORMATION.

Hey that is good information I will let my mate with a 1991 GQ know.

I wonder if my fuel pump has the same little filter in a 1992 Nissan Terrano with the diesel TD27 motor.
It seems that Nissan shared a lot of parts between the Patrol and its smaller cousins Navara and Pathfinder/Terrano. On mine, the diesel fuel filter is the same, the injectors are identical and I have even fitted a Patrol 90L fuel tank directly into the Terrano with no modifications required.

How do I identify the "banjo bolt" on top of the pump. I will have a look tomorrow.

Hi Geordie,

Yeah the banjo bolt is at the top of the pump and it has the fuel return line connected to it. It also has a bleeder valve on the top of the bolt so you can bleed the pump. Need a 17mm spanner and a 13mm spanner, to take out the bolt, watch the washers that you dont lose them. Very hard to see but hold it to a light and you should see a very fine gauze. Just blow it clean or wash it with a hose thats what i done dry and put it back in. Went to the libary to view a geniune nissan workshop manual and it didnt list it in there. They only say is to replace the whole bolt unit. but in the Gregory,s No 512 edition on Patrol 1988/1997 has it in there book and picture

Bob,
if your Terrano 2 has the same chasis then a Patrol tank will most likely fit.
My tank was from the local rubbish dump recycling area $10 where a local 4WD shop had dumped a stack of tanks after fitting long range tanks. The tank was in brand new condition with the bash plate and had a bit of petrol left in it so I assume that it was from a recent model petrol wagon. There were also several diesel tanks from both wagons and coilcab utes (as they had the model written on them in white texta) they all looked identical. The fuel pick-up and gauge sender flange unit will bolt straight in and the rubber pipe had to be trimmed to shorten it. You may have to extend the fuel pickup line so it reaches the bottom. I found another damaged tank with the diesel pick up unit and float intact so I used that.

The tank mounting has 5 bolt holes each end and only 3 line up on the Pathfinder and Patrol chasis. I had to trim the corner of the mounting on the bash plate and tank to fit past my new 2.5" exhaust. But that was it.

Find a 4WD shop that has a stack of spare tanks from fitting long range units and get out your tape measure. Have fun.

Bob,
we are getting a bit off this fuel filter thread but iff your Terrano 2 has the same spring diameter as the earlier Pathfinder then there are a few springs including heavy replacements from Lovells or ARB that will lift it by 30 to 50mm. Or Jeep Grand Cherokee front coils that will give it a 3" lift.

How about start another thread to ask this question. There are a few Terrano 2 owners in the Pathfinder Club of Australia who have probably investigated this.
