I have a Nissan Navara with the D27 engine (non turbo). It has 245K on the clock and is dropping black smoke most of the time. The general consensus seems to be to replace the injectors and re-time the pump. How much am I looking at for this? Can anyone recommend someone in the QLD/Gold Coast area?

If its similar to GQ TD42 pump and injectors, anything from $1300-2500! Depending on the place, and parts...

here in Perth a recond set of injectors cost me $280 exchange for the same engine.. The fuel pump, if its just retime and nothing else, you're looking at around $400ish.

An average price for new nozzles and a pump strip clean and re-calibrate including labour should be around 800 to900 give or take with all labour included. I'm sure there will be other prices but thats what I usually expect.

Thanks for the responses. I've booked into a place which is quoting $500+GST including labour to replace the injectors, re-time the pump, and adjust the tappets at the same time. I'll let you guys know how it goes. Hopefully ok, because the ute will be doing an 1800km drive to Melbourne only 2 days later!! Fortunately its just had a full service so everything else he wanted to replace (filters etc) has just been done.


ps. To the fuel additive guy "Bi-Tron" - no additive can fix worn out parts (and before you tell me your product is not an additive - you *add* it to the fuel and/or engine oil so it is an additive!). I have no idea how you make your product, but many of its ilk are a kerosene base with long chain polymer oils which make things seem better for a while. If you still make the claims you make on your website then I'd love to see hard engineering data from an independant third party (eg. a materials testing lab combined with road tests supervised by a 3rd party - eg RAC).

I've had the ute back from South Coast Diesel in Southport QLD for a couple of weeks now and the difference is amazing. The total came to $520 which included new injectors, re-time the injection pump, and adjust the tappets. The guy recommended having a normal service (including replacing all filters) be done first. Well worth the money. In addition, they recommended a freerer breathing air filter and when the muffler is up for replacement a larger version. They seem to know what they were talking about and doing because it is like a different machine now.
