  1. Hi. I had my AT rebuilt a few months ago before Covid-19 visited the world. My rig worked fine until my engine rpm gauge no longer worked. The transmission also started shifting incorrectly. I checked my manual and advised to check the engine revolution sensor. There is no resistance on both terminals. Made additional test and found to have disconnected terminals. Is there somebody who have tried converting a sensor used by the new models to the old one like mine or did someone repaired their damaged sensor? I have a 1993 TD27 Turbo Diesel Terrano/Pathfinder. Tried looking for parts online but was not successful. I saw some online store from Russia and UK but I am not sure if they are legit. Thanks for the help. I have attached a copy of the sensor and the part# below:

      I don't know the TD27 but I'd be surprised if Nissan didn't use a similar sensor on something else. If you've got the resistance specs for what the sensor should be, you may be able to match it to a sensor from something else that might be close enough to keep the computer happy. If the old sensor's junk, you're not gonna make it any less useful by pulling it apart to look for a broken solder joint or something.

  2. I have a stock 92 with TD27T engine and had the same behavior. There is an intermittent hard starting in the morning. Checked the battery voltage and it is at 12VDC. I noticed that whenever I turn on the AC, the voltage drops to 11VDC and sadly to 9VDC at night. I had a suspicion that it is the alternator that is not correctly charging the battery but it gives a charge of 12V. I had it checked by a friend who is an automotive technician. He disassembled everything. Checked the IC regulator, the winding and armature and it is all good. He noticed that there a burned bolt for the alternator ground. The technician replaced the bolt with an ordinary one lying on the shop. Re-assembled the alternator and did a bench test and was able to generate a 13.6VDC. Returned the alternator to the engine and started the engine. It started to generate the 13.6VDC~14.5VDC. That fixed the problem.
  3. Hi. Mabuhay to all from Gen. Trias Cavite, Philippines.Owning a Nissan Terrano Diesel is just a dream for me when it was first launch in Japan. Did not expect to have one after. I hope I can see alot of DIYs for this truck. Cheers,
