Re: 1.6 DIG-T - 3rd to 5th gear change crunch

1 > 2 Yep, occasionally like that here from memory. Although not in the last few days! I wonder if it has something to do with temperature? I recall my 200sx being notchy/crunchy between 1 > 2 until the gearbox oil had warmed up. It’s been reasonably warm over the last couple of days. Will see what ...

Re: 1.6 DIG-T - 3rd to 5th gear change crunch

Unable to replicate a 4th gear crunch as per video. I will try and get a video of mine, but might not be until the weekend. I couldn't do a 4th to 5th test as again, but did manage to reconfirm that 1/2/3 > 5th crunches Going from 6 > 5 or any other combination of downshifting doesn't seem to crunch...

Re: 1.6 DIG-T - 3rd to 5th gear change crunch

Yes! Mostly short chrunches like that, but occasionally longer. I will try 2nd > 4th gear on my way home later to see if I can replicate the same 'characteristic' as per video. Im sure I have already tried it but will make a better mental note. Again it sounds like the engine is been taken to higher...

Re: 1.6 DIG-T - 3rd to 5th gear change crunch

Thanks for trying. I also get the 1 > 2 'mini crunch', although its more of a 'feels a bit notchy' rather than a noise if that makes sense? I think I had the same in the 1.2 DIG-T Qashqai, and I’m quite sure that my wife's DIG-S Micra is similar. Nissan's never seem to make a smooth 1>2 change! Need...

Re: 1.6 DIG-T - 3rd to 5th gear change crunch

Bit more info to this as I was playing around on the way to work. I managed to replicate the issue in 2nd gear as well. Im quite sure I managed to replicate it going from 1st to 5th as well. The key is engine rpm must be >4000rpm. You cant free rev it then knock it in gear, it must be during a gear ...

1.6 DIG-T - 5th gear change crunch [+ 1>2 change crunch]

Anybody else with a 1.6 DIG-T manual ever experience gear crunch between 3rd and 5th when 'making progress', such as an overtake? I use 3rd gear to accelerate quickly past a car, then straight into 5th bypassing 4th (no point going to 4th only to then change into 5th!!) It's as though I have not de-...

Re: Anyone changed their old radio to a touchscreen .. any guide ?

Your original post suggested you had a 1995 car, which would be the N15 Almera (if memory serves me correctly!) I'm quite sure somebody started on the Qashqai forums but gave up, but its been a while since I have been on there so its probably worth a search. Same with the Juke owners club as they bo...

Re: Fog lights don’t come on

The fog lights don't seem to actualy make much difference other than highlight the immediate area in front of the car. Ive had to drive through some rather thick fog recently, both in day and night and i'm a little disappointed, then again, ive not been all that impressed by front fogs at all other ...

Re: Problems starting in the cold.....battery?

Slightly deviating in this topic now, but if the engine stalls, then the ignition stays on like it would with a key so it would not lock the steering. Im also quite sure going off memory, even if you did knock off the ignition, the stearing lock wont re-engage until you open the drivers side door. I...
