Nissan Sunny B15 Acceleration problem

@Aumio as per my experience I had similar issue of my LR Discovery loosing power when operating at optimum operating temperature. However switch it off for 30 minutes and start it up with cooler engine and it used to be fine. This problem also occurred when my petrol tank was half or less than half. The solution as it turned out was simple, the fuel pump for my Disco had gone bad. Try checking the fuel pump, that might solve your problem.

 

@Rahimdad Thanks a lot for your insight. It helps.

However, My car have both Fuel and CNG. This happened for both.

Do you still think it's due to the Fuel Tank?

 

Also, I heard from a folk (A car garage owner, I'm not sure if he's a car genius or not) this is a common issue of Nissan cars.

And don't have any permanent solution.

What do you think since you seem to drive a Nissan car?

@Aumio If your car is running on Petrol and CNG than I am not in a good position to advise as I am not too familiar with that setup. I am having a Nissan Pathfinder R50 which is a 2001 model and is running without any issues. There was some race being lost when brakes were applied that it would almost stall, but that was due to timing going off when I replaced all the hose for the air intake. Once timing was set I did not face that problem again. You might want to check the fuel lines and hoses for the CNG to make sure there are no blockages.

Thank You. 

I'll check them.

Hi Guys,

The acceleration problem is gone now.

It's running real quick now. 

Both in Oil and CNG.

The car was sitting idle for 3 years. May be that was the issue with that.

It's running regularly now. This might have fixed that, I don't know.

What do you think? 

 

But I got another problem.

The engine shuts down intermittently. I can not tell when and how it happens. 

It does very rarely though. 

Can you guys shed some light what I should check about that?

Thank You

Well if car was sitting idle for 3 years, then all this you are going through is quite justified for few hundred kms if not 1k+. My strongest recommendation is to change this engine oil asap and also next oil change and oil filter do it within less than 1000 kms so that engine internal component get the required protection from shaving or corroded micro particles.

Also worth looking in changing all lubes slowly and make a track of all as a new start - coolant, brake oil, power steering fluid, gear oil, differential oil etc.

Did you happen to refuel it?

When petrol sits for a long period of time it loses its potency. I've had cars that sat in a shed for 4-5 years that wouldn't start. Added fresh petrol and they went like new.

Thanks a lot @Gaurav

I've driven it more than 100kms by now. 

It's been 2 months I bought(used) it actually. 

I changed the oil filter after couple of days of purchase.

Still, some oil left in the bottle. 

 

"Also worth looking in changing all lubes slowly and make a track of all as a new start - coolant, brake oil, power steering fluid, gear oil, differential oil etc."

Changed brake oil (installed new brake pad and shoe), used water instead of coolant (might this be an issue? ), didn't change steering oil(will do) . 

Didn't change gear or other oils. 

I'll do. 

Thanks a lot man. It helps.

 

 

Thanks @Barry

I refueled it. But didn't fill up the tank entirely or close to that.

Should I try that?

Sunny's lately have drive by wire system and usually its either the accelerator paddle or the throttle body and dearly there is a relay for the throttle body that gets shot it would be better to get the vehicle scanned for DTCs that way you can tackle the problem very easily and remember after this work you have to get it calibrated so the rpms stay stable.....

      With @Barry raising the topic on Turbo installation on his favorite truck, he has got me thinking of getting a Turbo installed in my Nissan Pathfinder 2001 model R50. Recently I have been watching a video breaking the myth of cheap turbo sets found on ebay installed on a vehicle in like 10 minutes and is like a fan only which is added to the intake. This turbo set claims increase of 50 hp on the said vehicle, but does nothing except made a sweet sound. As these guys explained that the turbo or super charge is all about getting compressed air into the engine. I now am more curious to learn about turbo charging a vehicle, in particular my Pathy R50. I used to have a 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSR4 with turbo which was tuned by AMG. This came as a stock factory install and I never had any problem passing the car and it was a lot of fun to drive.
      Firstly, what all needs to be done to install a turbo, it is not just dropping in a turbo in the engine bay and walla, my car also has a MAF sensor, how does that restrict the turbo from working, or is there a way to adjust it?
      Does the ECU needs to be reprogrammed?
      On long run what effect does it have on a wearing old engine which you are trying to keep alive and running?
      Would I need new headers and exhaust?
      What kind of realistic minimum gains you can expect?
      How much would such a setup cost?
      Is it legal, will I have a problem passing my car in RTA if I do get the turbo installed?

      Hi Guys,
      I am new to Dubai and came across your website which looks so informative. So many wonderful posts.
      I have gone dune bashing with my cousins and I guess I have a dune bug that has bitten me. Now I want to get my own off-road monster.
      I am divided between the Toyota Land Cruiser 100 series and the Nissan Patrol and so far my cousins have been great help to confuse me even more.
      I would like to have opinion from the car gurus here as to which one is better for say 70% of on-road driving and 30% desert driving.
      What is power to weight ratio, and which one is better? Which one is more comfortable on-road? Which one is better in the desert drive? Which one has more after market mods available? Which one is lower on maintenance? Generally fewer headaches and more fun?
      I am eagerly awaiting your valuable inputs, and hope you will not leave me confused like my cousins.

      Dear All,
       
      Last time I had some timing issue with my Nissan Pathfinder 2001, R50 and the garage people wanted to make the readings on the OBD II reader, but they were unable to connect due to the connector cable not being compatible. They tried bring about 4 adapters but none of them worked. Anybody has any experience or ideas as to how I can get the adapter or a connector cable to be replaced which will solve this issue. Any feedback would be appreciated.
