ATTENTION: NP300 looses coolant
Not a question, but a warning for new np300 owners :
Today my engine warning light went on (orange MIL). I was only a couple of kms from home and there was nothing that alarmed me, so I took it home for inspection. I did notice dried up green splatterings in the engine bay. Called my dealer and he told me it was most probably coolant. This was confimed by checking the coolant level, which was just below min.
Called Nissan assintance, and within 30 minutes the truck was towed to the dealer. It only took us 3 minutes to detect the cause :
The Airco pump was rubbing the coolant hose. There was another new navara at the dealer's so we checked if that one did have clearance,... and it did.
Seems my car is missing a hose clamp ore something that holds the tube away from the pump. I have to wait for a new hose. Hope it is in stock at Nissan's.
So,... better to be carefull. Check clearance before you are standing beside the road without coolant.
