This Gregory's Service and Repair manual covers the Japanese built Nissan GQ Patrol M and Ford DA Maverick Series I introduced from early 1988 and Series II introduced from early 1992, available in short wheelbase Hardtop, long wheelbase Station Wagon, Cab Chassis and Utility models. Part 1 of the supplement at the back of the manual contains information on models manufactured from December 1992.

The Mavericks are available as standard and XL station wagons. The Cab Chassis and Utility are available in one variant only.
Most models are equipped with a 4.2 litre indirect injection diesel engine with a rotary injection pump. Part 2 of the supplement in the back of this manual covers the 2.8 litre turbocharged, overhead camshaft diesel that was released in January 1995. The 2.8 litre engine also has six cylinders, indirect injection and a rotary injection pump. The timing belt for the 2.8 litre engine which drives the camshaft and the injection pump, must be renewed every 100 000 kilometres to prevent serious engine damage.
On 4.2 litre models, a five speed manual transmission with vacuum assisted clutch or four speed automatic transmission is available. 2.8 litre models use a different five speed manual transmission and the clutch is not vacuum assisted. Automatic transmission is not available on 2.8 litre models.
All models have a part time two speed transfer case and drive is transmitted to the rear wheels through either conventional, limited slip or locking differentials. Drive to the front wheels is via a conventional differential and freewheeling hubs.
All Hardtop and Station Wagon models are equipped with coil spring suspension. Cab Chassis and Utility models are equipped with either coil spring or leaf spring suspension. Some models have an adjustable rear stabiliser bar to permit increased suspension travel. Power steering is standard throughout the range.
The vacuum assisted brake system uses ventilated front disc brakes with either disc or drum brakes at the rear.
