I bought one yesterday as my wifes runabout only to bring it home and notice that the engine management light seems to have been tampered with, it's not making an appearance at all I know I made a major boo-boo not spotting but if the truth be know I was in awe of the condition of the vehicle. Extremely clean inside and out and very low mileage.
The vehicle is (I think) going in and out of limp home mode, mostly in it. She don't wanna move any more than 3k revs and 100 klm. I have it booked into Nissan dealer for diagnostic on Monday morning so time will tell how much of a spanking I'm gonna get
My own mechanic has mentioned mass airflow as a possible problem but has sai it could be several things. Quick look online last night came up with regulator valves as another potential issue.
Anyone have any similar experience with this model ? They are actually supposed to be a fairly reliable engine.
Make maters worse the nice fella I bought it off wouldn't answer his phone yesterday and now it's turned off completely. I'm not gonna ask him for my money back or anything but would like to ask him what he actually knows about the issues. It's my fault I didn't check enough and I'm aware I'll be going to the credit union for money to rectify whatever issues exist.
With any luck it won't be too bad, but if the management light has been deliberately "turned off" I suspect the solution may not be easy
Nissan diagnostics should cost what , €80-€100 ??
