    Which 13" wheels fit a Pao?

    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...

    Which 13" wheels fit a Pao?

    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...

    AC/Heat vent grill - diffuser?

    If I get a vent out, I'll take it to one of the big Pull-A-Part yards around here and try to match up the size. Will let you know if successful.

    K10 1.0L engine (89 Pao)

    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...

    Just got an 89 Pao - where is an English Owner's Manual??

    Tom, 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.

    AC/Heat vent grill - diffuser?

    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. 2 questions: 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...

    '89 fan relay? Fan on all the time

    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...

    What is this device in my ashtray - 89 Pao

    Yes, there is about a 3" slot that looks like it would take a very large memory card. Somehow it is wired into my sound system. Know of any type of memory card that large?

    What is this device in my ashtray - 89 Pao

    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...

    AC/Heat vent grill - diffuser?

    I'm missing the left side vent grill (I think it's called a diffuser?) from my 89 Pao. Two questions: 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.

    Where to find replacement windscreen gasket?

    Working on the 89 Pao. The windshield gasket has shrunk and I'd like to get a replacement. Surely there is some generic gasket that can be used, right? Any one? Thanks.

    '89 fan relay? Fan on all the time

    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...

    Just got an 89 Pao - where is an English Owner's Manual??

    Yah, the Pao is likely to get far more mileage than any of my other cars (except the minivan -- needed to go to the parts store).

    Just got an 89 Pao - where is an English Owner's Manual??

    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...
