Hi. I have a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder 2.5 Dci. Recently the car has lost power and has started smoking badly. The clutch may be slipping as well. I have heard that it may be the injectors, or the turbo. Any ideas ?
We tried to run the car without the air filter but that did not change anything. We also checked the air intake but found no obstructions. The oil level is normal but we did notice one thing when starting up the car this morning ( we have not started it for nearly 3 weeks ). When the engine turned over we heard a sharp sound coming from the engine. It lasted for about a minute and then disappeared. We also noticed that if u accelerate while the car is stationary a similar noise comes from the engine.
No noise when the car was started today. Not even when revving the engine :( Still have lots of black smoke. Cud it be a blown gasket between the turbo and the head or a damaged pipe to the intercooler ??
We have checked the hose and discovered a lot of oil. Furthermore, the fan in the turbo appears to be the source of the noise we had been hearing.
The turbo will be changed and the repairs should be completed next week. Thanks for everything.
