Nissan Pulsar 2005 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Pulsar here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Nissan Pulsar 2005: Why is there a banging sound when I start the car?
If the noise sounds like a dull thud or knock from deep within the engine, then I have bad news. Something inside the engine is probably trying to get out. And if it does, the engine will be instantly turned to junk. The worse news is that it probably already is (junk) even though it’s still running, because the damage has already been done. From the sound of things, your engine is perhaps only a few seconds away from exploding expensively.
Noises like this are usually caused by wear in the bearings – typically the con-rod bearings – and while they can be fixed if you do so before the engine grenades, it will always be an expensive job. In fact, it would likely cost more than the actual value of a 2005 Pulsar itself.
The best advice, then, is to let a mechanic have a listen to see if it’s as bad as you’ve described. From there, I reckon a second-hand engine form a wrecked Pulsar would be your best bet if you’re determined to keep the car.
Leaking cylinder head in Pulsar
It is probably a leaking head gasket, a known problem with the Pulsar, and it shouldn't be difficult to repair. Once it's repaired the car should drive as well as ever, and you could keep on driving it as long as you like.
Pulsar fuel use check
The fuel gauge is an indicator of how much fuel is in the tank, but shouldn't be taken too seriously. It's there so you don't run out of petrol. Checking your fuel economy is easy. Simply fill your tank and reset your trip meter, then drive the car for a week or so until it needs refilling, refill it and record the distance you've driven. Divide the kilometres driven by the litres needed to refill the tank and you have your economy in km/litre.
