Hi all,
My boss mentioned to me today about the probs he is having with his new GU.

This is an intermittant problem.

1. When you go for the anchors the pedal will only go down about 1/4 of the way.
when this happens the front right wheel locks up (yes it has ABS) and the other 3 do nothing at all.
He is a big strong sort of a bloke and can't physically get the pedal to go lower.

2. After trying to brake hard and having the above problem, the engine (3lt) stalls even if you are still moving AND in nutural so not stalled by gears.

It is dangerous to drive and is going to Nissan tomorrow AM but any suggestions from people who have had this happen. This should help him with the dealer.

Thanks
Dave

This sounds like a job where the only course of action will be to remove components, dismantle and inspect, ie ABS module block,master cylinder, disc caliper's etc, time consuming and vague guides as to what you are likely to find. The engine stall is also perplexing. I doubt whether the young inexperienced grease monkeys that work for dealerships, will have the cudo's to see this one through. Keep us posted!

Thanks guys I'll let you know. I'd say it will take some time but hey at least it hasn't blown a hole in the pistons .....yet, after all it's only 3 mths old.

Kev, the cruiser is of a much higher quality than he can cope with...LOL

Regards
Dave

The brakes are only the initial problem just tell him to wait for the Missan feeling of a blown motor ha ha ha

Yeah I told him that the day he got it.
I forewarned the mechanics as well and they just said it's a nissan I'm not working on the bl@@dy thing he can get stuffed.

I guess he is a yota man.

Take it down to the local police vehicle inspection centre.
Get them to test it and put a red sticker on it.
Then tell Nissan to pick it up from the inspecton centre and tell them to return it to you when the red sticker is legally removed.
That might get some action.
