I have a 2005 Nismo that has probably cost me more in parts over the years than the original MSRP. From bad catalytic converters to bad fuel pump to leaky spark plug tubes to leaky internal oil passages... Getting the shop manual was definitely worth the money.

Anyway, the latest thing is the low oil pressure that I know most people have been dealing with if they've had one of these over the years. The left intake cam advance keeps triggering the check engine light too so I figure it's the oil passage through the vacuum cover that blew a gasket. Anyway, I'm putting together a list of all the stuff that I need to get (gaskets and other bits) and for the intake valve timing control covers I know that there are two O-rings - one on the center shaft and a collared O-ring on the tail end. The problem is that there is only one pictured on the parts drawing on the Nissan parts catalog and only one part number. Does anyone know what the two different part numbers are? I'd really love to know.

Other than that, I'm a Death Valley Desert Rat and spend a lot of time following the old railway (like the T&T, BF&G, LV&T) grades through the southwest. The photo is just below Mengel Pass coming over the southern Panamints into the valley.

Cheers.

Your thread was awaiting moderator approval for some reason. I just fixed it, so the rest of the forum can view it now. :)

Welcome to CF. I went to Death Valley recently with a small group of forum members. I recognize the spot where that picture was taken.

While I was waiting I found the part numbers in another forum. I'm not sure why the parts catalog doesn't list all the parts. The Service manual leaves out strategic things also. When I took off the timing cover, there are at least five bolts attached to the cover which keep it from moving that are not listed or shown in the manual. I took lot's of photos during the tear down so that I'll be able to put it back together again. ; )

On the Death Valley subject, I've been traveling there for a long tie I drove up to Panamint City years ago before the road washed out and it was incorporated into the the park. As I remember, it was a lot trickier coming down than going up because I couldn't always see what was in front of the hood.

Cheers!
