2006 R51 Pathfinder Issues
I've recently bought a 2006 R51 pathfinder 2.5 Diesel Automatic which we're really enjoying except for a few issues. It has 135000kms (about 80000 Miles)
1. Cutting out on hard acceleration - the vehicle starts easily, even when left for a few days, however whenever you try to accelerate hard the engine dies and there is a hissing sound too. After this it is back to normal until you accelerate hard again. I'm thinking possibly pressure relief valve or SCV? Apart from this it sounds fine and has good power
2. Whining Noise - Seems to do this when stationary and when driving and rises and falls with engine revs. This morning I removed one of the intake hoses, post turbo, and found some oil in there. Not gushing out but enough to cause a few small drips.
