Nissan Patrol 2008 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Patrol 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Is it wise to buy a 2008 Nissan Patrol with an overhauled engine?
Four-wheel-drives like the Patrol tend to do big mileages, so you often see them advertised with overhauled or reconditioned engines. That’s not a problem provided the work has been done properly and quality parts used.
But you also need to talk to the seller and determine exactly what they mean by `overhauled’. A true overhaul will have included reconditioning the cylinder head, boring the cylinders, new pistons, new bearings, rings and even things like a new water pump and fuel pump. The receipts form the rebuild will tell the full story.
Our bet would be on the car you’re looking at having had a piston failure (number three or four piston) which was too common on the ZD30 engine. At which point you need to find out whether the engine was completely rebuilt, or simply had a new set of pistons and a new turbocharger fitted.Show more
Nissan Patrol 2008: Stalling after take off
If it's fuel-injected pumping it won't make any difference, in fact it could confuse the computer and make it more difficult to start. Check the fuel pressure and depending on the result of that check the fuel pump.Show more
Nissan Patrol 2008: Towing in overdrive?
Towing in overdrive really loads up the transmission, so you have to think about how you use it. Generally it is ok to engage overdrive on flat terrain, where the load is not as high, but it's important to disengage it when facing hills. The key is to always be in the correct gear for the situation, rather than leave it in overdrive and forget about it.Show more
Nissan Patrol 2008: Is a bubbled dash a common problem?
I would doubt that Nissan would entertain a warranty claim for a bubbled dash, but it's worth a try if you want to take them on. You could get the dash doctor to have a look at it and see what they think has caused the problem.Show more
