try spraying liquid graphite into the lock cylinder..let it soak in for about 20 minutes and then work the key back and forth for a while until it operates smoothly then start turning the key. you may have to spray it a few times. if this doesnt work then you need to have the lock cylinder rebulit or replaced. your nissan dealer can help you with that

I just used some household 3 in 1 oil and it fixed this problem in one of my older cars

3n1 oil does work but doesnt last. it is to thin. where i live the road salt would just laugh at 3n1. op if you live in area without a lot of road salt you should be ok with whyumads suggestion but if you are up north then try the graphite

So you're saying you have an R34 skyline in America and your key won't work anymore?

You're going to have one hell of a time finding a locksmith that can make a key for a Skyline (if you even own it) and if you have actual lock problems and need the part replaced, it probably won't be easy finding that either.

Nope just saying he may have trouble with his key problems, and he joined the wrong forums asking for help lol

A nissan forum would be a much better place to go to. He asked if anybody here is familiar with it, and I'm sure very few people here have owned an R34

I'd be jealous if it was an R32 though lol

a lock cylinder is a lock cylinder, the only reason i suggested the dealer was for the key code to code the cylinder. it being a gtr has nothing to do with the actual repair

Getting a part for a car there was never manufactured in america isn't as easy you think, espeically a Skyline.

i agree but i hardly doubt the skyline has special uber rare exotic lock cylinders. probably the same cylinders as a stanza or altima. op i would check the skyline forums for sure but i am almost positive they are standard run of the mill cylinders

This. There were major things that had to be done to make them a legal driver in US, they were never mfg. here. Finding anything without buying it from Japan or HK is very difficult.

Change the driver side and emissions

No biggie

Swapping all the drive linkage and dash isn't a "no biggie", but you can legally drive right hand drive cars in the US, look at mail trucks.

Emissions was a big deal because they are REALLY picky about it. Porsche Carrera GTs had the same issue. They kept getting sent back to the shop multiple times because US DOT went through them with a fine-tooth comb.

really dude???,a buddy i was in the Marines with brought an R32 back with him and parts are not hard to get,just goes the the dealer and orders them,its that simple. hell i have a 92 paseo,they stopped making those here in the US in 97,and parts are just an order away.when we were in Japan i toured the Toyota plant, Toyota,Nissan and Honda are all in the same giant a$$ building/plant

anyone with an IQ over 50 can get parts for anything,just a matter of time and research.

I had a friend with an R32 skyline and he went to the dealer here and they wouldn't do anything for him for his car.

He ended up selling it and picked up a Galant VR4 due to getting a notice of it being seized for legallity issues, although the car was completely legal when he picked it up.

Maybe a dealer there will help him, but here they wouldn't do anything; but I do live in a small city where Skylines are extremely rare; I've only seen one here in the 15 years I've been here and it was the one my friend owned.


And you're comparing a paseo to a skyline.
