Well - I have done it - signed up to trade my '91 Terrano for a Terrano II - just waiting on cash to come through - new one is lovely - will miss the old grey girl though - taken us a lot of places - got not much as a trade in but really couldn't afford to wait to sell private - trouble is I know that it will be in the yard for at least twice what they gave me - car salesmen!! scourge of the earth!

I have a Terrano 2 TDI, is yours also diesel? If it is I would be very interested to keep in touch to compare performance, economy etc.
I am very happy with mine, it certainly tows a very heavy duty camper trailer easily.
Only disappointment has been poor airflow throught the cabin, but I have been advised on this forum that there is a replaceable air filter in the system that is most likely clogged. I ordered a new one today.....$76.00 OUCH!

hello form Turkey as a new comer. I think it is time to have the fun of driving new Terrano, and forget the cash.

I have a 98 Terrano II 27TDi, too. It is quite uncommon in the part of the country where I live. But I am lucky (?) there is an offical service shop in the town.

I would like to share my MAF story and ask any similar experience to the forum: Two months ago, I felt some power loss, at the end of various diagnostic efforts, the local mechanic told me the symptoms exactly ( it was my first visit about the subject)
-power loss during climbing (down shifting)
-low acceleration
and he told me that " we will connect consult and check MAF voltage it wont go up 4 volts even 4000 rpm" he was right, maximum voltage was 3.7.
After changing MAF it easily passes 3.7 and I feel the power.

Welcome to exploreoz
It's always great to hear from fellow 4X4 enthusiasts from other parts of the world.
Do you do any off-road driving?
I hear that Turkey is a very beautiful country.
Australians generally know very little about your country so please feel free to contribute regularly.

Sorry Shaker,
while surfing on the net about the subject, I really used to speek three letter English. MAF is mass air flow sensor. In my car it is a wire has been kept at constant temperature, thus the required energy ( electricity) is measured to know how much air mass sucked in.
I am afraid this part ( a Bosch made) has a limited life.
It is just after the inlet air filter on the duct.
Any search engine will give enough links if you type "maf sensor"
Hope it helps.

Picked my new Terrano II TDI yesterday - it is beeyootiful!!
Black, silver trim - yeh I know - Hot - isn't that what aircon is for?
So smooth and practically noiseless compared. We did about 120,000 in the old one - never missed a beat, never let us down on a trip - would recommend one to anyone looking for a reasonably priced 4wd with lots of accessories. Yeh- what is the MAF filter?
ps - check the trader ads - we got a dickie seat from the new car for sale if anyone is interested.

I'm not even sure that the older (import) Terrano even has an aircon filter.
Someone please correct me.
I have a '92 and it has done a lot of dusty tracks. The air-flow is still fine and I seem to get the approriate amount of dust in the car with the fresh-air vent open.

Jules, I ahve solved the fresh air flow problem. If yours has the same problem, replace the pollen filter, very simple job. It has increased the airflow threefold. Hope this is of help.
