posticon **Loose intake butterfly screws**


Hi Guys,

No alarm bells just yet, but this recall announcement has been made in North America for the Sentra spec V and Altima which use the same engine as ours QRD25DE.

]HERE are the details of the recall.

quote:


2004 NISSAN SENTRA, 2004-2005 ALTIMA; VOLUNTARY SERVICE CAMPAIGN QR25DE POWER VALVE
Nissan has determined that on some 2004 model year Sentra and 2004-2005 model year Altima vehicles equipped with the 2.5 liter engine there is a possibility that power valve screws located in the intake manifold may become loose. If this occurs the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) may illuminate and unstable engine idling or power loss may occur.


As with the previous recall, am gonna approach Nissan Australia about this one and see if it'll affect us emoticon

Hi Guys,

The dealer could neither confirm or deny this recall at this stage, saying if it'll come through we will get notified by mail.

Am approaching Nissan Australia now and see what they say.

Guys,

I have just received an email from Nissan Australia confirming that we're NOT affected by this recall at all and it is a design and assembly issue for those 2 models in the States only.

Case closed emoticon

Re: Possible Recall **intake buterfly screws**


Hi Guys,

What can I say?

I take my hat off to Nissan Australia and John Robinson Nissan at Rockdale for being so patient with me through-out the whole process of me inquiring about the above recall and insisting that my intake is fully checked for those loose screws.

Nissan Australia has kindly agreed to perform the recall check-up procedure on my exy and follow the North American recall notice in every detail.

The decision was made to have this check-up done on my exy as a one off due to a similar situation taking place in Brisbane where the xtrailer had his engine replaced.

The above incident in turn raised my concerns and I contacted Nissan Australia about it.

The check-up process is far from being easy and my car had to stay at the dealer’s over-night to have the intake butterfly checked and tested and the screws in question checked.

All 3 of us (Nissan Australia, Rockdale Nissan and myself) were eagerly awaiting the outcome of this today.

My exy has been given the FULL clean bill of health (yet again) emoticon and the mechanics confirmed that the screws weren't even loose at all.

Re: Possible Recall **intake buterfly screws**


I think that they played it bad on you Jalal. In my country (same spec as you) they have had to replace a lot of 2002 x-trail engines because of low compession.

The cause of this is a bad design of the screws and the fact that they dont have any loctite on them.

My X had 4 screws msising, one of the plates loose, and the other 4 screws were very loose too. But the good thing was that the compession was very good, above 180psi.

I would rather get it checked out by an independent workshop or by yourself, because it wouldnt be very nice to have that happend after your warranty period endsemoticon.

Also have to add, after I did this the engine went a lot smoother when in gear, as you can remember I Was complaining that when you were parked with the trans in D the engien would vibrate like hell, it doesnt any more emoticon .

So my advice Jalal, would be to go to a Workshop and do the following things: Remove the Cat converter and replace it with a prober extractor, and add A cat converter on the downpipe, check all the screws on the butterfly thingy and loctite them.

driftking,

The air-intake design and assembly might be different between Australia, North America and where you're.

The screws were checked and there was nothing wrong with them and this after nearly 3 years of driving.

Had there been any problems, I would have noticed a drop in performance already.

I also noticed that they have disconnected the battery, which I think has caused the ECU to reset itself.

The car is idling much smoother now as well.

============================================

Because I am not that mechanically minded, I started searching other forums and this problems appears to be common in some countries overseas where the recall was announced.
 
 I found this [url=[sign in to see URL] on how to fix it.

Warning: If you're not sure what you are doing, do NOT attempt this as a DIY.

hmm.. i want to have a look at mine too but don't really want to play around with the engine

Jalal, was it difficult to convince Nissan to perform the check? Do you think they would do it for other people on this forum?

Don't! check with the dealer first.

It was hard to convince the dealer, so I had to go through Nissan Australia who instructed the dealer to do it and I had to prove my case to Nissan Australia and they have listened.

My dealer and Nissan Australia said that this type of service will not be granted on regular basis and it was done as a one-off.
