Re: 1.6 Dci Auto questions

"automatics are almost all rated to pull less weight than the equivalent manual . within this physical limitation , towing performance is in no way inferior , on the contrary some people think its far superior. as far as i know , almost all automatics including cvt/xtronics etc have torque convertor...

Re: 1.6 Dci Auto questions

Something very important about the auto, it makes a far inferior towing machine. For some reason the QQ towing performance is much lower with an auto box and engine size is even more of an issue. Here are just a couple of examples: QASHQAI HATCHBACK 1.2 DiG-T Tekna [Non-Panoramic] 5dr Xtronic Tow Li...

Re: Start/stop and turbo

Most Modern tubos have a water cooling system for this exact reason, unsure id the #qq has it, but i would be very surprised if it didn't By the time youve slowed down and stopped moving the turbo will have slowed to a stop as well. In any case, if it was still revolving a certain amount of lubrican...

Re: Automatic car HIgh revs before changing gears

600 RPM is less than idle speed. if u meant 6000 RPM then the car has a serious problem I am looking to buy an automatic model (57 reg plate, engine size 2.0 litres) but while I took it for the test drive, I noticed that the revs went really high before the car changed gear. For example, had to go o...

Re: Nissan World First SOFC

Do they give any idea on the efficiency, mpg, cost of manufacture? I guess it would be hard to get these figures as it's still in development. The concept sounds great and a much better idea compared to hydrogen. The main drawback I can see is creating the biomass will put a strain of food productio...

Re: 2015 Tekna 19" alloy wheels

Sorry to be argumentative, but your wrong here. What I did was actually increase the accuracy of my speedo, i've done it & have checked it. My Mini went from 57/56 mph to 59mph at a true 60mph(GPS). This did improve the ride & noise inside the cabin, the downside was the steering was less precise an...

Re: 2015 Tekna 19" alloy wheels

What law says u cant increase your wheel diameter / aspect ratio? Thank you both. The only way I can legally increase the aspect ratio is by reducing the R diameter to accommodate a higher sidewall, and thereby maintain the same overall (outer diameter). Hence my plan to swap my 19" alloys to Tekna ...

Re: 2015 Tekna 19" alloy wheels

Have you considered just increasing the profile size of the tyres to gain comfort? The circumference of the type will slightly increase with the added fact that your speedo will have increased accuracy as most speedo's over read by 3 - 4 mph. I went from 205/40 17 on the mini cooper s to 205/45 17 a...

Re: Emissions Control Service

All they will do is add an additive into your fuel tank & a pre oil change additive to the engine oil. Mostly unnecessary unless you use your car in extreme conditions or your car is very high mileage. So its a money maker. Hi, I've got a 1.5dci Qashqai and its due for its 2nd service...
