Tom, yah, I really like those wheels.
I'm in Kentucky, USA, and we don't ever see Micras or March's, and for sure not in our junkyards.
Maybe the closest Nissan model might be a Sentra.
I guess I better do a search by wheel bolt patterns (you say it's 4x100?), and then filter by 13 in...
I know many people are using non-stock wheels on their Pao's.
Are there any 13" wheels from any other car models that will directly swap over to the Pao -- with adequate offsets to clear unaltered fenders and wheelwells?
I have seen a lot of specially made, aftermarket 13" (and larger) wheels...
The oil dipstick tube on my 1.0 is crazy out of view, sticking up only about 1" from the crankcase! Since the tube is not visible at all, in order for me to return the dipstick into the tube, I have to get a flashlight and make a few stabs in the dark trying to re-insert it way down there in...
Yep got the e-version of the manual in Japanese -- I think I dounloaded from this site (or maybe the Facebook site?)
Tried putting it through the Jap to English, PDF-to-Word translator, but it just sat there overnight without converting.
Thanks Tom. I was applying some side pressure using a putty knife and noted a tiny crack appearing on the vent piece itself, so I stopped.
1) Should I remove the whole vent piece first (the plastic duct, held in by 2-3 screws)?
2) Will a diffuser-vent from any other car fit the...
As a follow-up, I removed the thermostat fan switch from the bottom of the radiator, connected an ohmmeter to the leads, and put it in water on the stove with a thermometer. It popped open around 185 degrees Fahrenheit. So I cut the hot wire to the fan, and let the engine sit at idle. It took a...
Have this 89 Pao.
I noticed this electronic device stuffed in the ashtray. It lights up when the ignition is on. (See attached pix)
It has two buttons and what looks like an ON/OFF switch which does nothing.
HOWEVER, when I press the middle button, a woman's voice comes on and says something...
I'm missing the left side vent grill (I think it's called a diffuser?) from my 89 Pao.
1) Are there other Nissan models that have the same size grill that I can use?
2) HOW do you remove these vents without cracking the plastic?
Thanks for any info.
Have a new-to-me 89 Pao.
The fan turns on any time the ignition is on. Found that the fan is hot wired to a side of the coil, so obviously the thermostat switch or something else is wrong.
Any tips what to check?
Where to find the thermostat switch?
Should I just rewire in an aftermarket thermo...
I've got about 165K km on the motor, with unknown history. It does not leak oil which is surprizing, making me believe that it must have been rebuilt somewhere along the line.
Will have to do a compression and leak-down test.
However, I'm a mechanic, and swapping engines for better performance...
