4k is real steep, ask them for cost pricing on the parts? Labour to do all that should be like 4hrs. It took me 20 mins to pull the oil cooler off mine, its only 4/5 bolts!

Should I ask them to check the head whilst it's there?
Off to qld in March and I'd hate to have this happen again on Fraser.
I'd be inclined to agree with Dilmah with regard to the pricing for a job of that nature, it's outrageous!. If the extended warranty covers it let them sort it out. However if your out of pocket at all, have the quote itemised and take it further.

Thanks for the feed back. If the claim doesn't go through I will most certainly be taking it further! I'll be sure to keep you posted.
Let's hope I get the bus back soon so I can get it dirty again hey!
Thanks again

The joys of dealing with warranty people. For those that are thinking of buying a used car, never,ever get the extended warranty. Not worth the paper it's written on.
Still haven't got my car back, maybe next week. The whole reason I haven't done any work on my ute is due to this 'warranty'. What a joke.
Thanks to those who replied.

your extended warranty should be ok if it is still valid under the due months or klm,s plus if the vehicle has been serviced via an orthorised nissan technician.
tell the dealers where your car is to stop playing games and fix the bloody engine now.

d22 and d40 manuals at least in europe say reccomened 5w30 all around but personally i have been running 10w40 for like the past 10 years without issue. tried 5w30 once sounded so bad compared to the sweet sound of the 10w40. at the end of the day its a diesel motor makes a good amoung of torque the yd25 isnt a new motor on the market so 10w40 is what i will keep using and what the Nissan dealers use anyway on the d22. d40 they do 5w30 but runs different.

Hi Jonney,
Not sure if anyone pointed this out to you in the thread but in the owners manual below is what is said:
5W 30 is preferable. If 5W 30 is not available, select the viscosity
from the chart, that is suitable for the outside temperature range.
For Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia: 10W 30 is preferable.
(manual provides a chart on which oil covers what outside temperature as mentioned above - you can refer to the technical section of the owners manual)

5W 30 is the oil that can be used for outside temperatures of -30 to 40degC for both gasoline and diesel engines. So I think you can stick to what you are using.

All the best
