So basically a few weeks ago I purchased my first x-trail. Reason behind the purchase i wanted something that could happily tow my track car (97 civic hatchback) and also tow one of my horses (if ever my gf l200 isn't working so basically just a backup) and without having the expenses of a hefty pick up.

Cut a long story short the guy I bought it from said it needs a driveshaft and just needs the maf sensor cleaning so I thought fair enough thats no problem. But after getting the no power no light limp mode low fuel pressure situation I thought it was more to it than the MAF. So I cleaned the EGR still no joy pulled the SCV (which looked fairly new). So I pulled the fuel filter and.....a big blob of jelly gunk like fell into my hand. And the filter was blocked solid so no wonder it thought it had low fuel pressure there was probably no fuel getting through. Moral of the story if someone says its been looked after and fully serviced...take the time to service it yourself when you purchase a car.

Just look at that filter! Still having the issue of it sounding like its on 3 cylinders on idle and low fuel pressure! Next going to change the SCV and hopefully this fixes the fault. Has anyone had these symptoms before?

Gave the X a good detail too

The old girl buffed up well.

If you havwn't done already, check your air filter too. Mine was blocked solid when I first got it, and this would obviously affect idling. SCV wear will cause erratic idle and often hunting.

Check for induction air leaks too. Intercoolers are prone to failure.

Only problem is you don't know what the previous owner has been put in the tank to run the Xtrail on .The only time I have seen c**P like that come out a filter is on old tillers and a Kubota digger where a cr**py old funnel and can gets used and contaminated fuel from an old can .I mean a previous owner might work at a scrap yard or knows someone to get cheap fuel from or stick used chip fat in it .Get under the back seats and take the access covers of the tank and look inside ,maybe take samples of the fuel .You don't wanna be sticking a new filter on until you have checked the tank :thumbs:

Well...Good news all! Managed to swap out the SCV done a fuel pump reset and she runs smooth as silk! Absolutely over the moon! So I changed the SCV (B#$ch to line up O ring) stuck in 2 bottles of injector cleaner into the tank and blanked my EGR OFF then went for a kebab :grin: so all it needs now i think is a driveshaft knocks/grinds when turning left

Result! Did your EGR blank have a hole in it, and did your kebab have salad and chilli sauce mate?
