Hopefully not Brett, if it is the butterfly screws, we will all support you on this and ensure you don't pay a cent!

Re: Checklist Item #7 = LOL!

I wouldn't get your hopes up on getting a response from Nissan the same day you drop it off to them, but then again you might be lucky.

What a pain not having your X-Trail for the Easter Long Weekend! I'd be hassling them for a free replacement vehicle!

Brett,

Read my post HERE

I think your fears will soon be realized with this problem and it is now a matter of how long it will take your local dealer to REPLACE the engine, rather than (if it needs replacing)

The damage was done!

Good luck to you mate and you should stand your ground on this issue and insist that it should be covered by Nissan Australia, who are aware of it. There could be NO other causes for the butterfly screws to go loose, other than an assembling defect by not applying loctite and no mod you have done could have caused this!

Jalal - Thanks mate. Dropped into Nissan on Saturday to see the exy up on a hoist, minus the top half of the engine. No-one could give me an update, other than they were 'completing diagnostic tests'. I have contacted the salesman who sold me the exy and he is keeping his ear to the ground for me (lets just say he owes me one). Hopefully I will know more Tuesday when the shop reopens. 8( 8( 8(

What's the verdict, Brett? I can't stand waiting to find out! emoticon

edit: I just read this thread and I guess you're the next unlucky person to have the "loose butterfly screws" problem...

Right now, I couldn't care less if the exy was used as a bbq. I am a little optimistic with the assistance of Jalal, I may get somewhere. I said a 'little' optimistic. emoticon

Rich, you are lucking that we have met, because adding a smiley face to your comment might appear to show a darker, sadistic side. I can't wait either, but I am not happy about it. Apology accepted mate. emoticon

Don't worry, either way I will be updating this thread soon. But now it is in the hands of Nissan Australia.

Re: SERIOUS loss of power ???


 After many phonecalls and email exchanges between Jalal, Nissan Australia and my local Orange dealer (stealer), they have decided on a band-aid solution to fix my problem. The engine wont be replaced. The repair will consist of new butterfly valves, locktited screws (all 8) and a new gasket.

 Although they acknowledge there is some serious pitting in #1 chamber, I am told this is the suitable fix. And after all this, no-one is prepared to tell me whether it is a warranty repair or not. Talk about passing the buck. Additionally, they wont even supply me with a loan car.
 
 As we are aware, Deb(debdorro) had a similar problem, where the same band-aid solution was completed. End result, new engine required several months later and more time without a car. I am not prepared to go this path and intend to fight this with Nissan on Monday.

 So stay tuned, the fight is not over. A big thanks to Jalal for all his efforts on getting us this far. emoticon

 Starting to think that Nissan may be concerned if this fault keeps appearing, then it will be a VERY EXPENSIVE recall.

 I now regret not taking the trade-in for the Mazda CX-7 last month. emoticon
