Really not happy!!!

Post by stevied » Fri Mar 20, 2020 7:47 am

Bought the Juke 9 weeks ago, 17,000 miles on clock.
Bloody timing chain gone, had it back at main dealer they agreed.
Booked in for 27th April, if they have parts due to no delivery of parts from China.
Mechanic says it's still alright to drive, covered under warranty due to it being just over 2 years old.
Having chain, tensioner and high pressure oil pump fitted.
Just so annoying, better it goes whilst still under warranty though.

I take it by "gone" then it's stretched or jumped rather than broken. I'm surprised they say keep using it, they must be wanting to do an engine change and not care about the one in the car.

You see why the 1.2 is held in such low regards, fingers crossed the 1.0 is better.

Well by gone I mean stretched.
It rattling like a biscuit tin full of bolts.
It hasn't lost or burned any oil, but dealership mechanic said it sounds like it's been starved of oil and due to this the tensioner hasn't been doing its job allowing the chain to become slack and wear against the tensioner guide.
They are fitting a high pressure oil pump to rectify the problem.
Mechanic said it would be fine to use, I only do around 50 miles a week at moment.

is the 1.0 a DIG-T engine? if so its got a greater than 50% chance of having same issue
as currently both the 1.2 and 1.6 DIG-T have suffered the stretching and tensioner issues
and Nissan knew about the 16. long before they developed the 1.2
