I've got the really bad piston slap as well as the extremely long crank times. Piston slap is only really noticeable during cold starts, and the long crank time was around for a few months last winter/spring (february, march, april) and I haven't seen it since. I haven't had a failure though.

2011 Hatch, 1.8 motor, cold start ticking/taping noise (piston slap) noticed this noise on cold start ups a couple of months now. Currently 30K miles. Once it's warmed up the noise goes away. Other than that the car runs fine. Going to Nissan for this issue next week. We'll see what they say.

a couple of times in the past days, i started the engine and the "O/D OFF" light didn't go off.
i turn off the engine and start again, and it's gone.
i still don't know why this happens!

2009 SL Hatch with CVT. MR18DE. Cylinder 3 failure started at 65,000 miles.

Started as light tapping in the cold in winter of 2010. Would be ok when warm. By mid 2011 it was tapping no matter the temp and even once warm. Started experiencing massive oil burning. Oil light came on twice in a month before I realized something was very wrong. By winter of 2011 had a very obvious lump at idle. Engine would die unless I came to very light stop. Replaced engine @ 84,000 miles new years weekend 2012 with MR20DE. After 600 miles new engine running great, no check engine light.

Video of engine once it started going bad.


**** PLEASE LIST THE FAILED CYLINDER IF KNOWN *******

Warrior: I also have MR18 2011 HB, 12000 miles and the cold startup ticking too. Went to the dealer in October and then again in December. Both times the tech “ confirmed” that it is normal. The tech and I did take a test drive in the car from a cold over night start and we did drive it for 10 miles.
I honestly can’t buy that answer being normal as there is no place in the manual where they list piston slap as normal. < grin> They did document that the noise is piston slap

I called 800nissan1 last week and after getting drilled on the phone by the customer service person, I was told that a factory rep would call. Got the call from the factory rep and the person told me if the dealer did not find anything wrong, she could not do anything. Again, I can’t buy that answer either.

Any suggestions?

Piston #3 knocking @ 103 000 km

Can you give us a follow up to the code that came up and was it resolved?

It was the air intake timing sensor replaced under warranty now it runs great but dunno its cause of winter but still doing shit mpg even if im shifting low and feathering the gas.

This question for all deose anyone else realize after mid tank the needle drops alot faster?!

08versailles 02-07-2012 06:05 PM

^yes for sure drops faster after 1/2 full mark. On economical tankfuls, I put on 400km at half way, but i've only made it to 700km once for a full tank. So normally I'm at 350 to 400 km at half way mark, 600-650 on a full tank when driving economically. I've also never been able to go 100km before the gas gauge moves...Usually 60 to 90 km depending on fill level
PS i have very little urban driving, sometimes none at all
edit sorry i should be in an mpg thread:)
