Nissan Patrol 1998 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Patrol here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
1998 Nissan Patrol hard start issue
It's frustrating when a dealer misdiagnoses a problem, and then charges you for the work they've done, even though it hasn't fixed the so-called problem. In this case, from what you have told us, there really isn't a problem. You say you are able to start the car first time, every time, by simply waiting a second or so longer, it was only the dealer that claimed it was hard to start. I wouldn't trust the dealer and would take the car to someone else if you feel you need to have it checked further, in this case one who specialises in diesels.
THERE are too many reports circulating about the 3.0-litre turbo diesel engine and Nissan won't discuss them, so it's hard to recommend the engine to anyone. If you're thinking of the 4.2-litre I would suggest you go for that and stay away from the 3.0-litre engine.
Unleaded is ok
UNLEADED should be fine for your car. We checked with Nissan and they agreed that unleaded is the way to go.
A speedy solution
According to Nissan the correct idle sped for your Patrol is between 750 and 800 revs, so your vehicle is within specification. Nissan says you can't adjust the idle speed manually as it is controlled by the electronic control module (ECM) and must be checked by a Nissan dealer. If you have any further concerns, a diagnostic check by a Nissan dealer can establish if there is a problem, and if so, which sensor is causing the variation in the idle speed.
