well i got mine sorted...without spending anymore money...

turns out all that was needed was for the ECU to have the LEARNT part of the ECU reset - so everything it has learned, was cleared. I was told it has somthing to with the learning algorithms and the way the injector pump times/ meters the fuel etc. So the fuel rail pressure was getting too high at idle because the ecu was telling the pump to deliver too much etc. Still have no idea why it went bad in the first place and niether did nissan, but it has been fine more than 2-3 weeks now...???? oh well... anyone else with these type of problems should have this done as it costs nothing and only takes 2mins... if it still occurs then you have further issues...

Who reset the ECU for you?
Didnt the dealer do this for you when you 1st told them about it ?
Just remember after every fuel filter change you must clear the ECU.

Yes the dealer did it. They initially did not know to do this... It was only after they figured it out on another navara under warranty, that they called me in to do mine ( as i had to pay out my own pocket)

None of the diesel specialists suggested this as a fix when i described the problems i had...

It was not simply clearing the error codes, it was resetting the injector pump learning that fixed the problem.

what ever you do don't go back to those idiots......clearing injector learning is part of NORMAL SERVICING ! ! ! ! ! !
its done everytime the fuel filter is changed so it can relearn the new fuel pressure rate with the new filter. its one thing that seams to catch out the DIY'ers.

So we have to learn to be mechanics on our cars, so we can teach the experts how to maintain our cars.. for fk sake.
that is disgraceful.

That happened to me once too. Put my foot down to beat traffic, took off like a dog shot in the arse, then nothing, thought i'd broken a throttle cable till i remembered it's fly by wire. Limped about a k or so and decided to switch it off for a few seconds and bingo, right as rain. That was about a week ago, hasn't happened since but i'm glad i read this thread. Has anyone who thought they fixed this issue had any more troubles?

Try this before you buy any parts

To clear the codes from your ECM do as follows

How to Set Diagnostic Test Mode II (Self-diagnostic Results)
1. Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch ON and wait 3 seconds.
2. Repeat the following procedure quickly five times within 5 seconds.
a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal.
b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
3. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 10 seconds until the MI starts
blinking.
4. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
ECM has entered to Diagnostic Test Mode II (Self-diagnostic results).

How to Erase Diagnostic Test Mode II (Self-diagnostic Results)
1. Set ECM in Diagnostic Test Mode II (Self-diagnostic results).
Mode II (Self-diagnostic Results)" .
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for more than 10 seconds.
The emission-related diagnostic information has been erased from the backup memory in the ECM.
3. Fully release the accelerator pedal, and confirm the DTC 0000 is displayed.

or in short
Ign on count to 3
full on and off throttle 5 times within 5 sec's
count to 7 hold throttle down for 10 or so seconds
wait for the ECM light to flash let go of throttle and your in count the codes after you have written them down or fell you don’t need any codes just hold the throttle down until you see the ECM pattern change to ten fast flashes twice and then ten slow flashes and there you have one reset ECM
ok so i tried this just now because i am having problems with my nav i believe it occurs at the peak of my boost (3000 rpm) exact and then the van goes into limp mode.. the van sounds and acts normal from 3000rpm and below but once it attempts to pass thats it. i dont even hear the turbo.. so i am assuming that it is what someone stated before (the boost pressure controller failing) because at some times i see black smoke behind the van while i attempt to cross 3000rpm ( this takes a while ) in limp mode...

but now im puzzled because if it was the turbo boost controller wouldnt the van be spittin out smoke before limp mode whilst on boost? and i believe i put bad diesel in my van..
anyways i tried reseting and when it reaches the point where i have to see two fast flashes of ten and one slow of ten .. i see 3 fast 10s and 1 slow ten.. error code?? can someone help me? thanks
does anyone know how to drain the fuel pump / filter for dregs

new development .. i just realised that the fuel pump thing to press is soft and anytime i press and it gets hard after a while it gets back soft.. help?
