100000km Petrol T31 service


So the 2nd hand petrol T31 we have just bought is going to be up for its 100000km service soon and seeing as the last 9 services it has had have all been at Nissan service centres I'm wondering if I can save some $$ on the next couple and do a lot myself?

List below of what the service manual recommends replacing at 100000kms - and my solution.

Replace Engine oil & filter - castrol oil and Nissan filter (do myself)
Replace air con filter - required?(last done at 90000kms)
Replace brake fluid - Wait 'til I put new pads and rotors on front at 110000kms?
Replace Iridium/platinum spark plugs - get the $44 repco ones? 5/8 hex doesn't fit?
Replace timing belt - no such thing
Transmission oil - all ok for 100000km on a manual
Replace Fuel filter (not in-tank type) - not sure on this? no mention in owners manual except for diesel engine on page 8-14...another misprint like the timing belt??

Any thoughts on this approach?
Anything else I should consider?

Re:


I guess this being old means you have probably dealt with it, but

Replace Engine oil & filter - castrol oil and Nissan filter (do myself)

Yep - a nissan or compatible filter, filter wrench, 14mm socket and new drain plug gasket along with oil... too easy

Replace air con filter - required?(last done at 90000kms)

If it's been done at 90k then don't worry does not need to be changed. If you have access to an air compressor and blower then you can reverse flush the filter element

Replace brake fluid - Wait 'til I put new pads and rotors on front at 110000kms?

If it's been longer than 2 years since the fluid's been changed then yep - remember to try to get a different color fluid to make it easy to flush and work from the longest line first - ie rear left, rear right, front left, front right

Replace Iridium/platinum spark plugs - get the $44 repco ones? 5/8 hex doesn't fit?

Get a decent sparkplug socket and long extension to get down there... I think it's a 17mm type. I like the Repco sparkplug sockets. Iridium IX should cost you aroudn $20-25 each if they are the same as the T30

Replace timing belt - no such thing

Yep don't worry, technically you could check the chain tension (ie chain tensioner operation) but it's a pita... only worry if you have timing chain slap/rattle which will be very noticeable if it happens

Transmission oil - all ok for 100000km on a manual

Should be done at 80K I thought then 160,240 etc (well was that way for a T30 - trans, transfer and rear diff at 80K)

Replace Fuel filter (not in-tank type) - not sure on this? no mention in owners manual except for diesel engine on page 8-14...another misprint like the timing belt??

Its an intank filter and doesn't need to be changed I don't think... sounds like it refers to models that have a non intank filter. Personally I would wait till around 120-150K before doing the intank fuel filter, it's a bastard of a job though, make sure the fuel tank is 1/4 to 1/2 full and you need a special tool to take the lock ring off the top of the filter under the rear seats

Thanks Ben,
For anyone else coming up to their 100,000km I have the Nissan service centre quoted price for the parts only.

"The total cost of parts only for the 100 km service for your Xtrail is $294.75 which includes oil & air filter, sump plug washer, spark plugs and 5 litres of Nissan genuine oil."

Regarding - Replace the timing belt:

There is a serpentine belt that runs off the Crankshaft to drive the water pump, Aircon and Alternator. It is accessed by removing the front right wheel and the Splash guard (all of it).

Not that hard and not that easy - read the the Electronic Service Manual to save you some grief.

I would definitely replace this around 80-100,000kms.

Not sure what you're calling a timing belt.. as the exy has a timing chain?

That's right - T31 Xtrail doesn't have a timing belt - it has a timing chain which should last till engine rebuild time.

I was referring to the generic service items vagueness and suggesting the serpentine belt should probably be replaced around 80-100k.

I haven't seen it (serpentine belt) referred to anywhere in the ESM or owners book.

I believe it is only covered by a vague reference to "check all drive belts for wear or deterioration"!!!

Re:


I'm guessing the "Customer Information Booklet" as Nissan call it, is generic across their fleet of cars.

There is reference to inspect the drive belt (aka serpentine belt), but not replace it.

The next reference to the timing belt would only apply if the vehicle actually had a timing belt (like Holden Astras do), and not a timing chain.

The X-Trails seem to have big services every 40,000kms, so I wouldn't think the 100,000 km should be too nasty.

Good luck with it.

Re: 100000km Petrol T31 service


Have just commenced the 100k service at 99700km... New shocks all around, new tyres, wheel alignment.

Coolant, no probs. Eng oil & filter no probs.

CVT tranny; ESM says 9.5litres or close to. Figured how to unlock dipstick, warmed and exercised CVT as per Nissan instructions. No fluid on dipstick! Drained CVT only 5 litres came out. Very black .. clearly not done recently. Put new NS-2 fluid in (which is a greeny-gold colour).

So far have put 8 litres in.. just doing it very slowly at the moment (specially don't want to overfill it)

So guys 4litres at least of this fluid have just dissappeared, vapourised in the 100k since new! (I must point out that I bought it with 92k on the clock). Original service(s) not ever done properly??

I hope I am now walking away from what could have been an expensive exercise.

 emoticon

Next order of business brakes fluid, pads and rotors!

Are they supposed to check the oil level in a CVT transmission at normal 10k servicing?
I thought it was just replaced at 100k service.

Cooch,

You wouldn't have thought checking it would be a) difficult b) impossible!

I can't believe that just because the book said change at 100k, that was all they relied on !

But I can believe that has happened.. AND I know from my reading of forums and blogs, both here and overseas that TEMPERATURE or OVERHEATING is the big enemy of CVT tranny's!
