Random power loss
Ponchobalza posted a topic in 96-2004 R50 PathfindersHi, yesterday happened something very strange, I was driving and I stop in front of a traffic light and when it turned to green I accelerated normally not hard, not slow, and my pathy started to have intermitent acceleration and almost it turned off, I accelerated slow and started to work fine and then I stopped and it did the same thing, I turned it off and when I tried to turn it on didn't started at all. I disconnected the battery, waited for 10 seconds and when I plugged it back I could start the pathy again but the problem persisted, and after a while a check engine light showed up. I wonder if someone had a similar issue? I'm waiting Monday to arrive so the mechanic can plug the scanner and check the failure code
1999 ZD30 power loss/EGR
Graal067 posted a topic in 96-2004 R50 PathfindersHey guys, New to this but keen to learn as my 4x4/outdoor interest grows. I have a 1999 R50 3.0L ZD30DDT DOHC 16v Turbo Diesel and would like to keep it going as long as I can and do it myself. Currently its running a bit rough/turbo gauge is all over the show (will get up to 10psi and then drop to 0psi). Im thinking a boost leak? I can't find anything obvious in any of the hoses and their arn't any obvious oil leaks that I can see either. Could the EGR play a role in this? Been reading a bit and it seams like the thing to do is too block it to increase Diesel engine longivity with possibly a power/milage increase? Seams simple enough, but I'm not 100% on location and can't find any exact photos/diagrams online. Like I said, new to this but keen to learn. Any help is appreciated. Cheers
