Hello Scott,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Is the engine turning over fast or slow or not at all.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The Engine is turning over as normal - this is the second time this has happened - and with a brand new battery.


I've only had this for a month - had 11 months MOT and a mechanic friend gave it a good checking over before and after i bought it.

Aloha Greg

Thanks for thy response - and sure it would be helpful.

TBH i asked the question yesterday afternoon - and as it took almost a day to get a response - which i'm sure is the site not thy fault - have now got the van to a garage.


Wishing fa thee Abundance and Giggles

No Problem .

If you can get it started with a push start then you may just have a problem with the glow plug system .
So many things can be at fault ,but wish you a great day and all the best and that this does not turn out to expensive , remember you may find parts direct from Nissan a lot cheaper as this is in fact a rebadged Nissan .
