Average M9R lifespan?, what are Aust drivers getting? Reco engine costs?


Hi all,
I understand there are a lot of variants but with the T31 Diesel having been available since 2007 I was thinking there will be some high km examples around so was hoping to get an idea of what could be considered a rough expectation of how many km's we should be getting out of a M9R engine in Aust driving conditions. Yes, I know it depends.......
Renault claim they are good for 300k.

I was hoping mine would be good for at least 200k before any real major wear signs like oil consumption. Hopefully won't need to do clutch either.

Have heard some shockers re major overhaul costs for 8yr old TD SUV's, not much less than value of the high km vehicle so IMO it would be good to gather a bit of data on the M9R.

So basically, anybody worn one out through high km's use?
Has anyone had one fully reconditioned? Cost?
Any different servicing been done to help extend life?

To kick it off,
  125k on mine.
   No problems yet
   oil/filter every 8k, Penrite enviro 5-30. No smoke, no errors, no leaks, no provent, clean air filter after 20k
runs an egt gauge, 300deg on a flat highway run at 110-120kph, 7-7.4 ltr 100k, 7.6 around town.
   
Driven without much mileage concerns, don't let it run under 2000rpm very often. This ain't no tractor engine emoticon

Love it!

Re: Average M9R lifespan?, what are Aust drivers getting? Reco engine costs?


Hi,

My 2008 M9R has just reached 230,000kms and still no probs. Almost no drop in oil level between services. Only items I've replaced (other than standard service parts) was the turbo hose at about 110k and the front brake discs at about 130k. Still on original clutch.
A little bit of a hesitation on hard throttle has showed up recently, so this weekend I'm gonna pull off the EGR valve and give it a good clean. Also suffers from oil on air filter problem but only to a very small extent. Fuel consumption has never changed since new......city driving: 8.9avg..... motorway 7.6avg.

George.

Re:


I can't say I have a high mileage engine at only 90k.. But all is well so far.. I do the logbook services only at the correct intervals.. I have noticed a wee bit of power loss down low but I suspect that is from the damage to intercooler I sustained a couple of weeks back..

I'm interested to know the life of this engine though. Will be following this thread with keen eyes...

Re: Average M9R lifespan?, what are Aust drivers getting? Reco engine costs?


My 2008 t31 auto has recently (July) had a big end bearing failure. Inspection has evidence of metal particulates throughout the engine including the turbo. Recommend full overhaul including new turbo and injectors, may need new injector pump. Found cylinder head to have evidence of cracking and failure, will be unable to re-use existing cylinder head for reconditioning process, replacement required. Will require full set of hoses and cooling system elements for warranty purposes.
We have owned the Xtrail for about 2-3 years and it has never even looked like over heating in this time, trips north to Exmouth included, vehicle has 152,516 Ks and I have just received my quote thru RAC for the engine to be reconditioned by The Engine Exchange, Bayswater WA. their approved repairer, for the slight sum of $21903.70
No that's not a Typo.
As I think this is a ridiculous quote I have declined their service but now have to pay an invoice of $2295 to "remove engine strip and quote". Funnily enough the entire labour amount in the quotation for repairs reconditioned engine is $2295
Rock and a hard place!

Yeh its crazy alright, thanks for the info about the engine Kev, I have also seen a couple of others in Qld online for similar prices. At the moment I'm disputing the current invoice for the Removal strip and quote of the engine by The Engine Exchange with RAC who referred them, and handled this process on our behalf as I am a member with RAC.
RAC will not release car until payment is made.
Going to check some things with Consumer Protection to see where I stand.
I was told by RAC the $2295 for Remove strip and quote engine would be part of the $9000-$11000 price they expected a complete reconditioned engine to be if I went ahead with the repairs.
Now the recon quote totals $21903.70 this includes the $2295 itemized as labour. The engine is in pieces in boxes inside the car awaiting return to me when I pay. I would have thought the labour component in the quote would not only cover the removal but also the fitment of the engine if I went ahead with repairs.

Have heard different things about whether the computer will function with replacement motors fitted, will search the site and see what I can find.
Cheers
Peter

Re:


Hi Peter,

The question to be asked, did they need to actually strip the engine to pieces to identify the fault? In this day and age of technology and all the snake cameras available on the market, one has to wonder if they could have achieved the above diagnostics with leaving the engine in its place and just removing part of it for inspection and analysis.

The price quoted is almost a revenge quote for not going ahead with the repair, as they seem to have thought that showing you a completely stripped engine in the back of the car you would have no other choice but to proceed.

Re:


Hey Peter,

I know its a bit late... but I've seen M9R's on Ebay for about $4k previously.

Hell, I think Nissan Aust invoiced my dealer about $12k + freight for a brand new motor from Japan. Took about 20 hours of labour to get it all in. Now i'm waiting to get the paper work for the engine transfer.

My M9R had done 110,000kms before being replaced, but I think it started failing about 15,000kms earlier.

Re: M9R engine


Hi Konnaz,
Thanks for the reply, I have managed to source an engine from a 2011 xtrail with 48000KS for $5500,
Hopefully it will be fitted this week and we will be back on the road again!

Cheers

Re:


Good work.

I had to wait 3.5 months for my new engine to arrive from Japan.

I was sooooooo glad to get my car back, it runs sooooo smoothly.
