    @MB, I dont think the insulation I have is going to work that close to the heat source - its going to melt - best look at something else I think

    Found issue with cooling and temp gauge gremlin.

    Bad news...now onto Brunswick in WA organizing warranty claim for what is either cracked heads or blown head gaskets on an engine 11 months old with 28000 Kms on it.

    Found coolant tank was pressuring even on cold start as was running on OBD scan on the temp sender output to get a confidence check that the gauge is telling me good info (as was prepping to have digital A/M gauge installed). It was and coolant still cool and the signal was correct, but reservoir already bubbling and gurgling. suggesting exhaust gas pressuring cooling system.

    So Tee kay test...and just of the vapor (after draining coolant a bit so it would not go into test chamber and foul readings) coming out og the top of the res, 4 squeezes and she yellow shifted...so..gasket or head crack.

    Also fund condensation in EGR valve, but no signs of coolant in sump oil or oil filler cap, nor any soot build up in coolant.

    Anyhow, engine still has 25 months warranty or another 31000 Kms on it so now gt to find a way to get it fixed without having to pay to get the car freighted from NSW to WA and back again ( a few grand there at least).

    Now in all the time I have owned it, it has never gotten over 3/4 temp on gauge for more than 20 seconds and thats only after ten minutes from cold start before it settled back under half, and then stayed there all day for hot start or constant running, so to my knowledge engine has never kettled or boiled over.


    So pretty pissed off atm, and hoping Brunswick has a plan in place to honor warranty for a 27 K install, and another 2K road haul for delivery.

    Have spoken with head tech twice now, and he is getting back to me today.

    Let us see what happens.

    Send an email to Greg sat BD, admin@brunswickdiesels.com.au. Follow up with phone call to Linda or Kerira-lee, explain the situation. Leave it 3 hrs then ring them back, speak with Greg only, the other two guys work for him but they can't make warranty decisions. Detail the exact symptoms and what you have done to reach where you are. Ask Greg where you can take it for an assessment, you need to let him make the decisions rather than make demands, it's simply the way that works with him. I would be wry surprised if he knocks you back because the motor is still under warrany.

    Explain to me again MB why you have not got an "MB's GQ play car" Build thread going mate. Get onto it mate, all your history will be lost in this thread mate. I regret never starting a build thread for the GU. Would have been great to log the journey. So glad I have it all documented for the GQ.
    Its a Nissan! =====> Its a Keeper!! ....... Got a TD42 in it BONUS!! ....... I'm a lucky bugger! I've got 2 of em!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.
