Re:


Do yourself a favour and do a search on Diesel Particulate Filters if you are not sure about the X-Trail diesel filter.

They are great if you do plenty of highway klm, but crap if you do mainly city. They fill up with particulate matter very quickly with urban driving.

Make sure you use quality Low Saps engine oil at all times and use quality diesel as well. I put a couple of tanks of cheap stuff in my last car and it started doing a burn every day. It took 4 tanks of BP Ultimate Diesel to get back to normal.

Enjoy your new car emoticon

Re:


Thats a lot of kms... although my August 2012 has 85,000kms already. If its been driven a lot, chances are the DPF has been able to burn off - but I'd be worried about the engine light... mine hasn't come up. What code is it throwing up? Document everything the dealer says about the CEL, what they've done etc. Reading other posts on the forum, it can take quite a bit of time and $$$ to fix the CEL and you've only got 3 months of warranty to get it sorted... I'm thinking you'll be dealing with the CEL into the future.

Hi Simon,

I did laugh at this comment, surprised the dealership didn't lead you in this direction during sale.

I'm thinking of buying my second 2010 Exy but in a diesel this time in the near future.

Hope all goes well for you, sounds like you got a great buy.
A guy that worked in my old dept is selling his 2008 ST-L Exy with 15,000km for $26,000! He's a bit of a jerk I think, and not from this country (not that I'm racist it's just he seems ... Snobbish).
So I think you got a great deal :-)

Cheers,
Ben

Update


To update

After finalizing the paperwork, i had to make an appointment at Nissan service to get the relay replaced.

They had the car for a whole day and when i went to pick it up they said the relay was replaced but the light was still coming on. They informed me that i needed to make another appointment so they could have it for a week or two.

I thanked them and left.......bugger....what to do....

So off to supercheap to get one of those scanners. I wanted to read it myself. Sure enough, problem in glow plugs somewhere. Reset...3 starts later, returned. Reset...etc.

The only problem was in the error. No starting probs. So i decided to have a look myself. Sure enough i pulled all wires of the glow plugs, checked them out, checked the wires, all good.

Until i noticed what happens when i put the cables back on. The wiring loom that has those wires was moved in the holder slightly and as a consequence one of the plug boots didn't contact the plug properly (the wire had tension on it). Seriously, could this be a problem. Move the loom, couple of cable ties to hold it in place and reset the code.....bingo.

So far, so good.

Thanks to the advice on this site, i only use BP diesel.
