Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

Mine threw an engine light last night, took it in this morning there is a nissan bulletin about the egr programming, reprogrammed it, threw the light again this afternoon.

Seemed to go better after the reprogram and the 2nd light. Now with the light on driving normal.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

I've done the EGR block with a blanking plate about 15,000 klms ago. The CEL light comes on periodically (due to insufficient exhaust flow recorded) but I clear it with an OBD2 reader. The cruise control is affected however, which was discussed on navara asia.

I'm fairly happy with the dual lockers although the Spartan in the rear cause the occasional tire squeal and noises as it clunks away. It would bother some people but I don't care too much, given the improvement offroad. (And the ability to do burn outs and donuts in the dirt in 2WD without the traction control killing the fun)

You can get a custom tune done, they switch the egr off. No faults or issues.

Problem is it is about 1800 for the tune.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

Does your Navara axle hop a bit on dirt when you give it some. Mine does but I still have the stock shockers and I reckon beefier units would minimise this.

Especially in sand it has a fair bit of axle tramp.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

Can't say I've noticed, I have a decent lift kit so I'm not sure if that fixed it.

Anyone installed after market upper control Arms?

Tossing up which ones to get.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

I'd strongly suggest you get the extended ball joints. I don't think aftermarket UCA 's provide much more extra droop, compared to 35mm longer ball joints.

I have coil bucket contact on full droop, does it help with that? I'll definitely look into extended ball joints though

I got the upper control Arms as my preference.

I've noticed a change in ride and attitude of the car. Four stars.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

There is 2 different diff centres in teh 550 apparently and it requires the Vin to know which one.

Seriously nissan, these things are a mess to source parts both aftermarket and genuine.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

Busi that's not correct. The V9X's all have the same diffs. There are 2 different carriers for the front R180a diff to cater for the various gear ratio's, on all D40's. The actual front diff is the same. Just 2 sizes of centre carrier (and the V6's have a stronger 4 pinion design). ie one size for 3.133 to 3.538:1 ratio and another version for 3.692.

The rear diff is different on thai and spain versions and ours have a 10 bolt carrier.

All details here. ===>

Are you going to get airlockers or e-lockers?

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

An update on fuel consumption for those interested. Just did Mt Isa to Melbourne and back again (5200km's total) loaded up fairly heavy.

Sitting on a true 110 km/hr (from GPS) averaged 9.2 litres/100.

Does 8.4 l/100 sitting on a true 100km/hr.

Not too bad.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

Long time no log in for me.

Just fitted new front wheel bearings after 115,000 kms. It started making a grinding noise on the passenger front but I kept driving for another 500kms to get home. The noise stopped completely. The old bearing has no play and feels fine. Stuffed if I know. Maybe it came good. Anyway for $140 for a set ($70 a side) it's cheap insurance for next time I go on a big trip. Got them on Ebay for a Spanish Nav.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

Wasnt a rock in the backing plate or something?

The newer type ball bearings in late model vehicles are far more reliable than the tapered roller bearing setup.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

It just might have been something like that MK. But it had all the symptons of wheel bearings. Ie grinding when turning right and I actually touched the CV on each side after driving down the highway. The drivers side was cool to touch and the passengers was hot. Not burn your fingers hot but a bit of temp there compared to the other side. A few people have had them replaced within 150,000 kms. Not sure what the average lifespan should be. Apparently its always the passenger side which fails first due to the camber of the road and bumps on the edge of the road.

Sweet as!

R51 only goes to 10. There is a lot of that with my model (2011) seems that there were a few changes in the last version. I am yet to find anything that is really different though as far as these parts are concerned.

Re: 2012 Nissan D40 STX V6 diesel

Apparently the Thai hubs/bearings fit and bolt on fine but it just changes the wheel track. The flange has a different offset to spanish. (By 10 or 15mm or thereabouts)
