Forgive me if this has been asked, but a search did not reveal an answer to me;

How many miles has your D22 covered without any kind of catastrophic engine failure? I read lots of posts of "66k with a rod through the block", but surely some (I would have thought most) D22's are not redistributing their oil across the world's highways?

Let me start off by saying that mine shows an indicated 80,310 miles on a 2003 model D22 with the YD25DDTi motor. Still starts immediately and without smoke and burns no perceptible oil between services. Please tell me someone can beat that!

This thread should possibly be called ''Who has the most miles on their YD25DDTi D22'' as it seems to be the 'blower'! I know a few guys with around the 110 thousand miles, also as I have been looking in the autotrader there are quite a few 100+ thousand miles.

As for mine I'm at 61000 on an 02 plate.

my wee rally raid is running sweet (touch wood) at 46k!

gets serviced and oil changed every 6k :wink:

as long as you look after the engine it should keep on running, i think too many people are running them like high performance cars and forgetting its a truck!

how many people have tirbo timers or let the engine run for a minimum of 1 minute on idle when they start in the morning!
if you dont have a turbo timer hoe many of you let the engine run on idle for atleast 2 minutes before shutting down?

exactly! diesels need looking after and if you dont, then dinnae greet when it packs in! :wink: :lol:

I always allow a good 5 mins warmup in the morning and a few to cool down after use. I will only buy a sound Nav for my next one with full service history and will fit a turbo timer to itI will also Service it every 3000 miles as my vehicles get some hard useage.

We managed to get ONE out of THREE we own to about 120,000 miles after a rebuilt bottom end. Unfortunately we will be leaving the Navara fold and returning to Toyotas and Landrovers. We bought three D22 2.5Di's in 2003 and 2004 for our commercial use as spraying machines, mostly on golf courses. They had all done between 70,000 and 100,000 miles when all three experienced catastophic con rod failures at the big end leading in two cases to complete engine destruction. This despite regular servicing and good oil and not being abused. The break in every case was via the oil way at the big end of the con rod and I have photos that show this on the one we managed to stop in time if anyone wants to see this. We also had a rear wheel, complete with half shaft come of one vehicle at 60,000 miles in the middle of the M1. How no one was injured or worse I'll never know. Nissan are pretending that there is no problem but talk to any engine rebuilder and you will hear the truth. They have lists of punters needing Navara engines and they won't give any warranties on those they rebuild. I am sure this is a major problem and bet there are lots of others out there in the same boat. Anyway, it's back to good old trusty Toyotas and Landrovers now. They never let us down on mileages far, far greater than these and they traded well at the end too.

hi frodo 8)

Dont mean to sound rude just wanted to beg to differ on a statement that you made there. ''They have lists of punters needing Navara engines and they won't give any warranties on those they rebuild''

I work with the d21, d22 and d40 on a daily basis with most of my work being on the d22 yd25 yes I do agree that nissan that act like they know nothing of the sort what you are talking about but people take the easy way out because i had one of my customers have a qoute for £7000 and told me that he nearly had a heart attack you just have to be very very very careful when replacing the engine for the simple reason that if you put in a second had engine as most breakers yards claim that they are low mileage and have covered X amount of mileage and so on it more then likely that the the engine will knock the bottom end out again.

Thats why when i work with the d22 i dont use yd25 engine i use the d40 engine because in simple words the fault has been corrected and i do warranty my work from 3 to 36 months and so far with the amounts of engines i have fit into the d22's i havent had not one blow the bottom end.

but i did have a customer take his vehicle away on monday drive it park it of try to start it on tuesday and calls me ''Mark my jeep is messed up it wont start the vehicle is dead dead it wont turn you engine is messed up''
I simply told him check your battery terminal, he called me back a hour later mark im so sorry the terminal came loose :lol:

anyway this is my 2p
have a great evening and on your toyota's heheheh dsl pump hehehhe £1700 :wink: common fault

Fair comments on quality of engine rebuilders, but you should not need to go to D40 if the D22 was fit for purpose, which it isn't. We paid good money for three new trucks and they all failed us at about one third the mileage we normally use them to and sell them on. As the Sale of Goods Act puts it: "Not fit for the purpose for which intended."
