What does the 100,000km service comprise of for a 2001 3.0lt manual?

I know the MAJOR $$$$$ service is every 40,000km were they change almost everything.
My understanding is that the 100,000km service is a normal 10,000km service & they also change the gear box oil & timing belt.
Some dealers say you never have to change the timing belt.

Every dealer i ring says something different. The Nissan dealer I reluctantly go to says skip the 5,000km service and just do em every 10,000km.

Anyone had the 100,000 service lately?

Thanks

Just a standard 10,000 service, the next big one is 120,000. The "Timing Belt" is actually a chain so doesn't need the regular replacement. (Like some others)

Goons ,, the first of the 3lt nissan patrols = series 1 ,,, the motor "fix" by recall was to "shorten" the dipstick so normal was 2lt more oil ,, second recall ,,ie series 2 was increase sump size by ??? yes !!! 2lt ,,, so many on this and other forums have had total engine failure that one would sugest buying a 2nd hand 3lt nissan patrol prior to 2003 is like playing Russian roulett ,,dont get me wrong ,my tojo 80series in early mods have/had a major problem as well..

Goons,
Just coming up to 100,000km service on my 2003 4.2. Read the Nissan documentation and it states to change the timing belt, however when I made enquiries about it was advised it is actually a timing chain and does not need replacement. I suppose the 3.0 is the same. I was advised that the timing belt virtually lasts forever but what does wear is the guides. These sometimes do need replacement but it's not as critical as replacing an actual belt.
My quote for a the 100k service was around $175.
I replace my own gearbox, transfer case and diff oils. Easy to do and saves a fair bit on labour.

I bought a small pump from Supercheap which just screws on to the top of a 5 litre oil container. It comes with a length of hose to attach to the spout and just poke it into the fill hole. I find I can lay under the car without raising it and then sit the container on the ground and the hose is long enough to reach into the gearbox etc. It's a bit of a pain because the boxes take so much oil, so you're arms get plenty of exercise, but considering the cost saving I'm happy. Can't remember how much the pump was but I'm pretty sure it was well under $10.
Mine is a GU 4.2 td so you should be pretty right.
Good luck with it
Peter

Goons.

Surely the Nissan documentation in their service schedules is not that confusing, that you do not know what is to be done at each service interval? Big difference between timing chain and timing belt, big difference between 5000kms and 10000kms service intervals. Nissan have been subject to criticism on their earlier GU engines, review posts for the last 12 mths!
I think dealerships these days should be more conscientious of their customer relationship.

Cheers

The Nissan service book is used in many different cars and across many models so thats why it states to replace timing belt. You will find it is not ticked in your book.
Your 100K service is just a normal service.

Alloy
The series 1 was released in 1998 in 2.8 litre and 4.2 litre diesel versions. The series II was released in 2000 and was the first of the dreaded 3.0 litre diesels and the series III was released in 10/01 and is defined with clear tail lights, extra sensors in the ZD30 engine and clearer, ie less pattern in the headlight glass.
Refer my website for further info.
Patrol Information
Probably some more defined research wouldn't go astray.

Whatever you do Goons dont skip the 5000k service oil's cheap and iron's expensive
At the milage you have on your's you need to be able to monitor what's going on in that engine. You should be cutting the old filter open after each service and checking for any metal at least if you find any problem you can get onto it quickly
Mine got to 210000k before we found any serious problem but we at least avioded a major failure
good luck

Goons,
I have a late 2001 manual 3 ltr and had the 100K service done earlier this year.
The Sydney dealer I went to just did a routine service (ie; "inspect") I change the oil & filters myself, use the Nissan Semi Synthetic engine oil, so asked them not to do it (they use a different oil because they have a contract with a different supplier). They did do an "on car" injector clean ( a bottle of injector cleaner in the fuel tank I suspect) and charged $80 for it. The timing belt is a chain and doesn't need replacing. The tappets aren't adjusted (only if noisy). I checked with half a dozen Nissan Dealers throughout Sydney and all of them said they have never had to adjust tappets. So, all in all, just a basic service.

Rob

FYI
I do know Jack Schitt & his whole bloody family

Jack is the only son of Awe Schitt and O. Schitt.
Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, a partner of Kneedeep &. Schitt Inc.
In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt, and the deeply religious couple produced 6 children: Holie Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Giva Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins: Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school drop out. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.
Noe Schitt later married Mr. Sherlock, and
because her kids were living
With them she wanted to keep her previous name.
She was known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock.
Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt and they produced a nervous son, Chicken Schitt.
Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony. The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens wedding.
The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Hoarse. Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new bride, Piza Schitt.

Maybe you should have been recalled, I think you were issued with nine tenths of ya brain missing and an oversized uneducated mouth.

I have a 2002 Gu II and was quoted $695 for a 100,000 km service this week by a Nissan dealer. Seems a lot, but what if the timing belt breaks in the middle of nowhere? The service manual will give conservative maintenace schedules for obvious reasons and many may get away with less, but ....
