DIY compression test

Hi all, I'm looking into a compression test kit so I can perform the test myself. Procesdure is fairly straight forward: - Warm engine - Remove all four spark plugs - Isolate ignition system - Thread in compression tester into spark plug one - Hop into driver seat, crank about 4-5 times or until til...

All decent choices those, used all of them in the past. Any should be more than sufficient for normal driving conditions.
Yeah, that's the impression I'm getting. I don't think it's worth splashing out the extra cash for brembo.

Pagid seems to be good value for money.

Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

Working through the flowchart posted a few pages back it looks like they've done it by the book, and that engine replacement is the recourse when the compression test values are wildly out of alignment. In cases like mine the timing chain is the end of the flow. It is strange that a timing chain ne...

Re: 1.2 DIG-T engine trouble

Hi, So we recently took our car to the local Nissan dealer garage to have a look at it after developing a rattle. He found low oil, topped it up and told us we may have ruined the engine. We had no oil level warning, no engine temperature warnings and had recently done 2x600+ mile trips at Christma...

Dash cam into the front road sign sensor??

Hi,

Was wondering if anyone has installed a dash cam but tapped the power feed from the onboard camera which is used to read speed limit signs? As opposed to feeding it under the roof lining and into the fuse box.

Re: Headlights

You're going to have to be more specific here. What isn't working? Is it your main beam lights or your dipped lights? Most likely needs a new bulb.

Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

Hello I would welcome advice on this topic please. I have this issue with my three year old 1.2 Quasquai. I took it to the local dealer just inside warranty and they'd said it was a known issue and the engine would be replaced under warranty. Nissan then rejected it as the service history was not e...
