Hi all lee from Newcastle

This is my first xtrail its the 2.2 2005 SE

Bought it to tow my track car so my intentions are to give it a good service and a tidy up then hopefully it can start doing some work.

Ran into a few issues but hopefully solved! The common no power limp mode no light situation showing no fuel pressure p1273 p0089. So I pulled the fuel filter and it was clogged solid with gunk! So I'm hoping tomorrow I'll get a new filter and all will be good!

Also pulled the SCV (which looked pretty new) and gave it a good clean with contact cleaner

Hello and welcome .Be interesting to know why the fuel filter is full of c**P ,was it just left to long before a change or is dirty fuel getting in the tank .The tanks are plastic so no chance of rust .

Hi, see you managed to get on. The pictures you sent me last night, well the most clogged up filter I have ever seen. It does look like old vegetable oil was used in it.

Not good. They are bad enough with refined diesel!

@Bertye. Please let me know if you can supply a T30 tailpipe.
