Nissan Patrol 1993 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Patrol here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Idle Nissan Patrol
It's most likely that the fuel pump is worn out and needs replacing. It often happens when you run the petrol level down too low.
I'D GO for the GQ Nissan Patrol. It's tough, plenty of parts are available and everyone knows how to fix them. I don't have any real problem with the Jeep, though early ones were poorly built and rather rudimentary with a small cabin.
Going out on patrol
THE MQ is really getting a little long in the tooth, so I would recommend you think about a GQ, though you will find it hard to fit one within your budget. Going by your description of the sort of driving you will be doing I would advise against the Patrol. It sounds like a very expensive way of getting to the city, ferrying the kids around and going shopping, with only an occasional weekend away. Go for a regular car -- it will be better suited to your needs and be less expensive to run. If you must go for a Patrol, buy the 4.2-litre petrol GQ.
YOU could tow your outfit with a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel, but I couldn't recommend the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel GU Patrol because there are too many reports of engine problems. They seem to have problems running at high loads on the highway. See this week's used cars report.
