Nissans are good, though?

Hi I also have this nissan. Noticed the car last winter was misting up on the windows so much I had to use a squeegy to clear them and this week it got thrown out of the MOT place before it could be tested as it had white smoke and misfired. Help! Had injectors out and tested.All OK. Changed fuel filter,no water in it. If I rev it into the red area the smoke and misfire stops. It has been running ok but hadn't used it last week as MOT had run out. First I knew of smoke was at the MOT place! Ideas please everyone!

Hi there
Turns out the smoke was darker than I thought and the fault was the injector pump. A very high quality engine flush (made by Forte) was added and it got it through the MOT! It will do till I save for a new pump.
Many thanks.

With no more info than you have given, I would say you have 1 or more inj. bad, or leaking.

what was up with my new 2003 altima----one day the driver side window fell down out of the blue and smashed to pieces inside the door after i had the car for only a few months. then after about 100k the steering was a complete mess and nobody could seem to fix it. then the engine seized at about 140k. a very disappointing car relative to my 92 sentra---that thing was a tank !!!!

THE SWITCH UNDER THE PUMP THAT YOU REFER TO IS CALLED A FUEL INJECTION TIMING SOLENOID SWITCH NOT LIKELY TO BE YOUR PROBLEM IF IT RUNS EVERY TIME FOR 10 SEC WITHOUT FAIL YOU COULD POSSIBLY HAVE IMMOBILISER FAULT HAVE YOU CHECKED FOR POWE TO THE STOP START SWITCH ON YHE PUMP

I have a 2000 ford F250 diesel 7.3 it is pushing water back out the fill tank where you put the water what might be the problem?

Could be several things. A head gasket for 1, or if you are getting fuel in the water, then look for a cracked inj. cup.If a head gasket is the culprit, you will probably get water in a cyl. and the engine will lock up. If an injector cup is cracked, the cooling system will be sqturated with fuel. There are other possibilities, but not likely. Good luck.

I have a 2004 Chevy 2500hd diesel it white smokes when it is warmed up and at an idole, I changed the fuel filter and there is water in the fuel. It's not a big white smog but very noticeable. Any ideas?

I have a nissan terrano 2.7 tdi. It all of a sudden started missing and puffing white smoke out, it also put engine management light on. I have put a complete engine in it with pump injectors, turbo etc and the vehicle still does the same. i was told to by pass feul filter , so i put a clear pipe out of a can straight to the pump. this has helped a bit but still got a miss when u excellerate any ideas

I have the same problem since running low on fuel and night temp hitting -3

If anyone can help

Did fault codes came back as oxygen sensor and leaky injector. I think either pump or esm/ ecu

I did filter and air flow meter .

If yr are brave get some electric wire find yr diagnostic port if it's a ob2 port cross pin 1 and pin 8 on the wide angle and yr mil light will flash its fault code . Differ cult to work out to start with but should start ten flashes for 0 then speed up each time for two more numbers . So 045 / 10 flash , 4 flash , five flash then two three second break for next code ..... Then Google for your fault code list . Or service manual
