Re: Clutch issues and potential upgrades


I'm betting you have a flywheel on the way out. The lack of power is likely the flywheel having more movement than it should. This was the first sign that mine had issues. It won't hurt the car so just wait until it makes a noise or really gets unbearable then you will have to open it up to investigate.
When it comes time I strongly recommend replacing with non-nissan parts. My aftermarket gear is going strong after 42,000km. I only got 28,000km out of nissan gear.

Re:


Tony, Checked the clutch fluid reservoir... perfectly full so no issue there.

I think Todd did speak to Nissan re: SMF conversion on his T31... I've only got 60,000km on the clock, so I'll be under warranty for another 90,000km. And aren't there issues with the D40 and SMF conversions stressing the drive train. Would love to know how an SMF drives in CBD traffic.

Todd, can you PM your after market clutch details and where you got it installed. Was it $2900? If i can get your part numbers, I can try importing one before the clutch completely dies.

There is a SMF replacement out there made by Australian Clutch Services (part: KN25617). $1,891.89.




They are based in SA so you will need to pay for courier. Any mechanic can do the job and all should be around $1000 for the labour. If you don't want the SMF flywheel you will need to get a quote for the DMF flywheel kit.

Australian Clutch Services
1 Hakkinen Road, Wingfield, SA 5013 AUSTRALIA
Telephone +61 8 8300 5000

When I spoke to Nissan they recommended against going SMF because it would void warranty of the whole driveline. I reckon this is absolute crap but given that Nissan don't really honour any warranty at all sounds about right. Tech I spoke to reckons the SMF conversion is popular with the D40 Navaras and some end up with crank/drive line issues and some are completely fine. It's a gamble but definitely a gamble I will take next time.

Re:


Not sure about the SMF in the D40 Navara Michael, that's why I brought the D22, it comes with a SMF from factory.
75000 clicks and so far still as strong as day 1.

Re:


Okay. Been a while since I have been on here but always keen to share info. Just picked up the 2005 ex this arvo after getting a new single mass flywheel clutch conversion kit and new clutch installed. Bought the Exedy kit from Autobarn Capalaba for $650 (although the guy said it was RRP $770).

Had it installed by Wellington Point auto for $830 including gearbox oil. So I thought it was a reasonable total price for a new kit and clutch comparatively.

Anyway, that was my experience.

Re: Clutch issues and potential upgrades


Ooops yeah I should have added that in. I already have a exedy clutch, and a new fly wheel to install. All I'm paying for is the labour ($1,100ish)

I'm also dropping the car off for a week, as I'm going away with work so they dont have to rush it.

Re:


It looks more and more like the DMF is starting to go:
1) smelly clutch, especially when shifting alot (e.g. hammering along Singleton Rd through the Upper Colo)
2) power slipping and jumping on/off when starting from lights. Once I get going, it seems fine.

Would DMF failure also lead to increased 'rattle' at idle. Not sure whether its the car idling too low, or the rattle transferring because lack of absorption in the DMF. Only happens when stationary - but it seems like the revs just drop a bit low, when i touch the accelerator to rev @ 550, then no vibration.
