    K13 CVT fault no drive OBD P0846 P0848 Fixed 👍🏻

    Hi, just wanted to post a quick threat about the CVT issues I’ve been having. 2012 model 45K bought as a slight damaged model. Minor panel damage to the Left front wing and I mean minor. Anyways, I got it cheap due to the damage. New wing fitted but the CVT would only move in R but not D or L...

    Not charging Battery going flat K12 1.2 2003 Alternator wires!

    Just thought I would share a problem I had with the battery not being charged and going flat on my K12. I've been puzzling for two weeks now trying to fathom out why my battery has been going flat. It started out as the car just about starting to the dreaded click click even after a run. I...

    sump

    according to this Ebay listing, they fit all the CR engines. I believe the engine blocks are the same just the bore size and rod throw will decide the cc size http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Nissan-Micra-Oil-Sump-K12-1-0-1-4-/251088034477?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3a76035aad

    THE DREADED TIMING CHAIN OF DOOM

    Apparently the first registered K12's ie 52 plate till around 06 were prone both all 1.0,1.2 and 1.4 models. It seems after that Nissan must have changed supplier for the chains or should I say the Japanese engine builder Aichi

    THE DREADED TIMING CHAIN OF DOOM

    Its FALSE economy to just do the chain or the chain and ONE gear. I'm sure each of the kits are upto scratch but you need to make sure that the chain adjuster is the ratchet type as some of the after market ones are not and can let the chain slacken until they reach oil pressure. I managed to...

    Changing Timing chain

    You need to order a new oil pump O-ring and make sure you remove all the old sealant from the sumps and oil pump prior to sealing it up again. Print off the manual as it showes you how to apply the sealant. The other main thing it to make sure you HOLD the inlet cam steady with a wrench when...

    Changing Timing chain

    Yes the engine has to come out as there is no room with the chassis leg in the way to get at the parts. ADL/Blueprint is basically genuine parts in Blueprint boxes. If you fit a kit complete with NEW pulleys inc the variable one, you Dont need to set it up using the compressed air. You just...

    k12 A REAL PAIN IN THE BUTT

    Flywheel Locking Tool

    Opp's really should have done it when in the car as the crank nut is torqued to 132.4/152.4 NM ! Nissan have there own tool which I have taken from the FSM but you would have to call the dealer for a price KV10105630 Ring gear stopper

    Flywheel Locking Tool

    Is the engine still in the car with the gearbox and wheels etc ? If so you can use a long arm with a long extention on the nut with the wheels on the ground or use an air powered gun
