    Problems and Reliability of the Nissan 1.8 L Engine (QG18DE)

    Problems and Reliability of the Nissan 1.8 L Engine (QG18DE)

    Over the last 5-10 years, the theme of the “oil” of modern engines has been heard by everyone. However, for some reason, few people remember or know that among the simple old “time-tested” engines there are many “lovers” to eat butter. One of these gourmets is the 1.8-liter naturally aspirated Nissan QG18DE engine.

    The 1.8-liter Nissan QG18DE engine belongs to the QG family – this abbreviation can be deciphered as “high-quality and green.” That is, the whole family is quite ordinary motors designed for installation on mass models of Nissan.

    The power unit QG18DE was produced from 1999 to 2006. The engines of the QG family were produced from 1999 to 2006 at factories in Japan and, in particular with the 1.8-liter engine, also in Mexico.

    In our latitudes, this engine is found on Nissan Primera, Almera, Almera Tino cars imported from Europe, and a little on Nissan Sentra arriving from the USA (models B15 and N16).

    Design Features Nissan 1.8

    QG18DE cast-iron in-line 4-cylinder engine block. The block head is aluminum, with two camshafts that drive the valve mechanism, in which there are no hydraulic compensators. The thermal clearances of the valves must be adjusted once every 100,000 km by the selection of washers (shims).

    On the intake camshaft of the QG18DE engine, an NVCT system phase shifter is installed, although there are versions that were produced without it. The intake manifold is equipped with a mechanism for changing its length. The timing chain uses a chain.

    Timing Chain

    The timing chain on the Japanese engine is not eternal. During operation, it stretches, begins to rattle. The longer the timing chain is stretched, the “brighter” are the malfunctions in the engine. In particular, revolutions begin to “swim”. Typically, the Nissan 1.8 engine chain has to be replaced already by a mileage of 150,000 km. By the way, on a Nissan engine, a lamellar gear chain (Morse chain) is used.

    Why does a Nissan engine consume oil?

    The family includes engines from 1.3 to 1.8 liters. And in fairness, we note that they are all “lovers” to eat butter. I wonder if we will find signs of maslozhor in our unit?

    The fact is that a special “oil appetite” was noted for the restyled engines released in 2003. In the midst of the problem, cunning engineers and servicemen released information that oil consumption of up to 500 grams per 1000 km is not a guarantee case. If the engine began to consume more – it was changed under warranty. True, the problem of oil consumption also began to appear on the new engine even with a mileage of 15,000 km.

    Carbonizing, replacing the diaphragm (breather) of the crankcase ventilation system, replacing or cutting out the catalyst do not affect the oil consumption of the QG series engines.

    In general, the QG18DE motor is not particularly constructive, and therefore it is difficult to expect great trouble from it. Nevertheless, some features of this motor entail a large investment in repairs.

    Piston ring wear and tear

    On a disassembled Nissan 1.8 engine (QG18DE), we found signs of a maslozhor. Firstly, the oil scraper rings on all the pistons lay down. Secondly, on the heat zone and on the piston surface under the rings there are traces of burning oil.

    There is only one way to “cure” the high oil appetite of all engines of the QG series – to replace the oil scraper rings. Moreover, Nissan has not released any alternative improved rings, so the new ones will wear out, and the increased oil consumption will return.

    However, among the QG engines there are those that have successfully traveled more than 100,000 km without a noticeable oil consumption. Thus, this problem is not systematic, but still manifests itself on most engines.

    Other weak points of the Nissan 1.8 L engine (QG18DE)

    In the Nissan engine, quite often other problems arise. For example, the head gasket often burns out. In the plastic valve cover, oil seals that seal the candle channels flow. The gasket of the idle valve located next to the throttle valve allows the antifreeze to flow, which drips directly onto the electronic engine control unit.
