I also had this problem along with a clunk sound when I turn my steering wheel. After disconnecting the battery for 30 min I proceeded to take off the 3 small covers on my steering wheel and then take off the 2 bolts that hold my airbag on. What I found was what looks to be a piece of metal the used to be attached to 3 small rubber pillars that went to a small thin piece of metal that was screwed into the steering wheel housing that had all 3 of the rubber pillars broken and big metal piece was just flopping around inside the steering wheel causing the horn to go off when I turned. No one can tell me what this part is so I just removed it and put it back together and every thing seems to be working fine now. It did not seem to have any thing to do with the Airbag as the airbag came off in 1 piece. It has been suggested to me that it was some sort of balancing weight for the steering wheel. Even the Nissan dealer could not tell me what it was. Any ways it seems fine with out it. DW

Maybe the PCV, Air flow meter, TPS-fuel pressure (pump), or dirty injectors. Could also be the AFM door sticking

It has two wires. One is red with a blue stripe and the other is green with a yellow stripe.

Do not run this vehicle. I think you have a blown head gasket. If there is anti freeze in the piston area you may have to replace the engine as anti freeze will seize the engine. DO NOT RUN Timing chain could be broken.

Possibly be a problem with the egr valve if it has one fitted I would check on line to see if your model was fitted with one it normally is the cause if car goes into limp mode

After all that the only thing I can think of is Mass Airflow Sensor. Should go get a codes reading, see if that helps, they're free at some autopart shops.

2 possible reasons
1--- failed cat converter blocking the exhaust
2---EVAP system not venting the fuel tank properly
run the fault codes and have an exhaust shop check the at converter

many EFI fuel injected engines of today vintage only get 10 litres to 100 km so 11 is not too bad
lower the float level a touch,check and adjust the fuel pressure to a minimum open up the air intake before the air filter, tire sizing ( narrower tire widths reduce rolling resistance ) tire pressures are critical,, reducing load being carried
if it has a cat converter make sure that it is functional and not blocking the exhaust
check for vacuum leaks , check ignition timing
ensure that the brake callipers are free to move on the mounting pins ( stuck pins leave a pad dragging on the rotor
wheel alignment to reduce tire drag on the road

faulty EGR will cause over fuelling, this will cause a fault in the oxygen sensor.

Undo your battery overnight so the computer will reset and see if that helps.if it does not you will probably have to take it to an auto parts store and see if they can reset it

sounds to me like you have a clutch issue. quick test for you to perform. put truck in 5th gear and pull / engage the e-brake and try to take off, just like if you were in 1st gear. If truck does'n stall, clutch is weak and you will need to check it. good luck.

Got a 85 Nissan 720 4x4 with the 2.4 engine with Weber.Have them test the alternator after you take it off,also check your fusible links and your positive battery cable connected to starter and the negative battery cable that is grounded to engine.My truck has a volt meter telling me what the system is doing which normal is 14.5 volts while running,battery should read about 12.6 when not running,could also be that your alternator belt is loose,maybe change that while your at it.You can crank engine up,have hood open,rev engine up and watch belts turn to make sure they are not loose.I f you need,I can send you a free repair guide on your Nissan.Here's mine. 85 Nissan 720 4x4 Silverbullet 4 with Samantha YORKIE at the wheel look out
