Primera P12 25X not starting after gasket replaced - Solved
« on: 14 October, 2017, 07:00:18 PM »
Hi guys I'm new here but have lurked for a while now, I'll try keep it short I have a 2001 P12 25x direct injection that starting having some water leak issues, overheated a couple of times and had all the telltale signs of a gasket/head issue, rough idle/white smoke from exhaust etc. I put it on a trailer to take to the mechanic for gasket job as it would not start on the day which I didn't think much of at the time given possible water in the cyls, which the diagnostics confirmed. Head is all good and gasket done and all re-assembled - big job apparently, unfortunately it's still not starting! I haven't really heard much else at this point as the garage is closed over the weekend but does anybody have any ideas where the issue could lie? Immobiliser? Probably a silly question but he just has key itself, not having the keyless entry wouldn't play havoc? Any help would be greatly appreciated  :)

All fixed - but it was a huge nightmare, ecu threw a wobbly after the gasket job so had an auto sparky fix that, then it would start but the engine light was on and was driving shit and giving somewhat vague error messages relating to fuel starvation. Turned out the high pressure fuel pump needed replaced too.
