The van keeps conking out, especially at low revs, i.e. when stopping at lights.
Very bad fuel economy. 6.5k / litre city driving.
Having allowed for the fact that it is full-time 4WD, I still feel that this is extremely thirsty.
8k / litre on a long haul drive.
Have had the van put onto a computer analyser, which indicated that the Crank Angle Sensor was faulty. Had to replace this - was quoted NZ$1250 plus installation for this part (by Nissan), ended up putting a second hand distributor in, as the crank angle sensor is enclosed in this unit. Second hand unit cost NZ$250 installed.
The van has not conked out since (has only been two weeks).
Was told that this would improve the fuel economy - which it hasn't.
The passenger window fails to open with the drivers controls. Apparently the connector unit has failed. Cost of repair will be approximately NZ$250.
