i suspect terminal, which as annoying as it is, cause the timing sucks, but not unexpected at 365k

got code p3600 and am curious what that may mean, can only find it references powertrain, ..... duhhhh

no metal in the oil yet, need to take oil pan off, but if it was serious i would have expected something in the oil, it could be bottom end ooooorrrr the single mass flywheel came off, still investigating

The Nissan workshop manual for your vehicle doesn't list P3600 so it's going to keep us guessing.


There could be a number of things that could make the engine stop suddenly.


1) Timing chain snaps, valves may be driven into piston crowns and bent into head, conrods may also be bent and main bearings could be deformed. A total rebuild may be required. It's the most common failure.



2) Conrod snaps/big end bearing fails/gudgeon pin snaps. Not common. Depends what damage is done, it may be limited to a single cylinder and may not have damged the valves which would require a head reconditioning at the least.


3) Fuel pump/harmonic balancer failure. Not common. These are connected to the crankshaft. If it's the fuel pump you could get a 2nd hand one and fit it, rather than going genuine new ($4K).


4) Dropped valve. Not common, but if the collets let go, the valve is free to fall into the cylinder head, the piston rises, hits the valve bending it, so the valve seat and guide are shot, the piston crown may be fractured, the conrod may bend, the main bearings may deform.


If it's a flywheel falling off, the engine won't start (starter motor engages with teeth on the flywheel to turn the engine over) but you should still be able to turn the engine by hand on the lower central pulley. No internal damage to the engine should result from that, but it would pay to have the thrust mechanism in the gearbox checked as well as the main seal on both engine and gearbox.


Good luck, let us know what you find!

Had timing chain done on it about 100k ago so not considering timing chain, engine does turn over sorta, make bad noises from bottom end and wont run, this wont be getting fixed of its the case, will be popping oil pan off tomorrow

80k on single mass flywheel clutch, clutch pedal was doing odd things prior to failure, as in a lot of movement prior to engagement, this is the reason i was thinking clutch/flywheel could be the problem, will need to drop the transmission for this

I'm sorry to hear that. Can you source a 2nd hand motor? I could suggest someone over this side of the yard but freight might be an issue.

While it might be tempting to drop another engine into it, I wouldn't.

If the crankshaft shat itself at those KM's, I'd be asking myself what will break next?

Already fixed, bought a second hand triton, 1 year old with15k on it, was more about the 6 days before i left on holiday than anything else, and the price was right����������

Now its just a project, if nothing else to take out the near new injectors and near new single mass flywheel to try and recoup some costs

Bitch is i did the front end on it 15000 k ago, new front hubs, rack ends, ball joints, shocks, the whole shitteree

If it is just a crank maybe use it to show the kid how to fix stuff and keep it as a farm ute, but i am not in a huge rush, need to get engine put and tear it down to see just what i would be looking at from a broken bits perspective

Btw draining the fuel tank you just filled up 80k prior to engine failure takes days, there is no drain plug in the tank...... and i am not keen to start punching holes in it just yet

Congrats on your new (to you) Triton!

Good luck with the D40. I hope you can recoup at least some of your outlay.

The MQ Tritons do seem like a major step up from the previous model MN. Have fun with it!

Thanks, kev

Yeah it towed trailer to coral bay and back without missing a beat, and way better economy than the d40, i find it drives like my d40 did as well which i like, didnt like the way the d23 felt and sounded, and that was the only reason i didnt get one, amarok was waaayy too much and didnt even get into a bt50, opened the drivers door and said 'nah'

Got the engine almost out of the d40, just gotta get the exhaust off and binnet then lift it out

Took the upper timing chain cover off and it looks like its intact, which i am kinda glad about, the d40 may ride again hahaha

The mn tritons are pretty good i think, im driving one for work.
I dont think the mq's are much different, just a few updated features really.
