I have a 1.3 CVT, recently this week seems to developed an annoying fault. The vehicle still runs, but naturally wouldn’t prefer this issue.
When travelling at speed, the vehicle slows down, but the engine revs remain fairly high, it’s not until you come to an almost standstill, that it goes...
I think need to change my engine mounts, as getting a slight judder when accelerating, they are still the originals!
I can see one on the left (looking at car from front) & one under the battery tray. Is there another one further up towards centre?
Fairly straightforward to do DIY?
I have to do a oil gearbox change on my K11 CVT, last year lightly tried to get the very tight sump plug off to no avail, but haven't tried upping the torque options yet on that, but looking at a option of a oil pump extractor to avoid the sump plug issue!
Anybody running LED side lights in there K11 Micra.
I have fitted some Osram Nightbreakers dipped beams, but I know they won't last long as standard H4, though mostly my conditions of driving is dawn and dusk and want some brighter side lights, so can use them a bit more, looking at LED's are...
One of my headlight bulbs gone and thinking now a good time to go for a better bulb pairing ,as the existing ones throw not brilliant.
Looking at the Osram Nightbreakers, though seems a wide choice for H4?
Recently, I have been getting this strange metallic rattle sound from engine. It’s not constant be come on frequently, all I can describe it like when you have a lawnmower with a roller and you drag it over stones, you get a high pitched sound.
It doesn't get louder with engine revs.
I have a slight issue with my K11 Micra, been driving fine, then tonight I noticed the heather matrix blowing cold air on hot, then temperature needle going high sometimes slightly into the red, but didn’t overheat. The fan doesn’t seems to kick in and then the needle goes slightly down then...
My Micra (non coil pack), started running a bit ropey recently. I changed the plugs and HT Leads, as they hadn't been changed for a while and it was still running ropey. Seemed like on 3 cylinders.
I unplugged the injector on number 1 and the engine speed didn't change.
A faulty injector...
Just to confirm is this the K11 CVT oil sump drain plug?
(There is not a leak I just sprayed some penetrant spray on the bolt).
If so. Underneath what way you turn this to get this off. Just making sure it's not a different hand thread.
I'm looking into doing a CVT auto grearbox oil change (along when I do the usual oil & filter change) myself.
I have looked at the Haynes and it looks fairly straight forward like changing usual engine oil.
Drain via the plug below and fill up via the filler tube.
Where do I get the CVT...
I have just replaced my thermostat & Radiator.
My new thermostat has the bleed valve in it. Do I still need to do the bleed procedure below? Or is the valve in the thermostat, just to assist the procedure?
[To bleed the air you must take the top off the header tank and run the engine with the...
Anyone know where I can get the bolts in Yellow from?
I soaked them all in plus gas & 3 of these bolts sheared off leaving the thread. They been in there since 1994 didn't apply much pressure, seemed quite brittle!
Gonna drill them out.
Anyone know the thread size. Or have to try some...
I got a week off from work. I'm going to replace the Thottle body, Radiator (CVT Auto) and thermostat.
I got all the parts now.
Anything I have to watch on fitting any of these?
Hopefully will solve my problems and keep the old girl on the road!
I need to replace my Thermostat on my K11.
Is there major difference between a Genuine replacement and a pattern replacement on sealing fitment? Naturally, the prices are much different been quoted £28 for the genuine from local Nissan dealer.
Though, I thought I heard somewhere the pattern...
Looking around to order a Radiator for my Micra K11 (CVT Automatic). Not as easy as I thought. Has anyone purchased one recently? Some of the new ones on ebay etc. The connections for the automatic transmission hoses at the bottom seem to be different. IE in photos only cater for a metal union...
I got a new brand new Rad to fit, as my rad is leaking.
The coolant is a brown rusty colour needs to be flushed. I don't need to flush the rad as it's new. Though how do I flush the engine block out
Is it a case of sticking a garden hose into the upper rad hose pipe to the thermostat housing...
