    True - Because Toyota is holding 80% market share in Afghanistan in terms of new & 2nd hand Imports. And engines are Transported ( read smuggled ) from across. & local yards in Pakistan are full of those. Ask for any other stuff and price is like Gold will shy out.

    why not ask for a TB45 - Im sure you can find it.. it will be a proper swap job for your vehicle, or a little RB30 - it will work nice in your application,

    btw is it 3 or 5 dr?

    These engines would be slightly pricey than your parchoon ki dukaan toyota engines. but are tough as nails.

    I know what version it is..

    I had a customer with that once, it had hot start issues - the reason was a sticking timing advance piston solenoid in the pump - usual RD28TE problem, nissan have a cure for it. Its an updated part no for the solenoid - and takes 2 hours to remove and install.

    That fault makes the engine feel like it has no compression and is incredibly hard to start, as it rotates the cam plate in the pump to extreme advance when hot, with the pump on start (max fuel) position the situation only gets worse, The person who owned this certain SUV that I fixed had got estimates of head overhaul etc, while infact that little part from solved it completely. Instant start, good power, no smoke and cool running.

    on the side where the usual spring loaded timing advance or cold start unit is. In your case its electric. the pump operates just like the 1KZ pump. a needle lift sensor dumping fuel into the main pressure head and the camplate pushing the plunger, the amount of fuel is metered by the spill sleeve.

    The correct way to test timing on this engine is an AB light as you cannot isolate the advance to set the timing dead spot on.

    it wont work - as the ECU controls the advance, removing that will result in ECU going to limp mode.

    no it wont affect - the issue is that any diesel engine whether mechanically controlled or EFI goes to full fuel for startup, thats why you get a puff of black smoke on startup.

    The advance solenoid sticks waay open causing the engine to go out of time.. A good tester (launch X-431) can read the data for both run and start. Or contact a Nissan workshop.
