I had the same problem on my 95 pathfinder. After a few trips to the shop, they couldnt figure it out. It was the timing sensor located under the distributor cap and rotor. There is a metal plate covering it. Somehow it got dirty. I cleaned it with alcohol on a swab and it runs great. Its been 2 years since then.

SOURCE: Hello! I have problem with erratic

More Explanation for IAC removal

The IAC Valve is normally located on the driver's side, on the bottom of the intake manifold (between the intake manifold and valve cover), up next to the firewall. An extremely inconvenient place. You can not really see it unless you remove some EGR components. From what I have learned, the upper intake manifold needs to be removed in order to inspect, clean, or replace.

SOURCE: 1999 nissan frontier is idling rough the truck

This can be your Idle control valve, when you turn the air on it puts the engine under load and your computer will increase the idle automatically to prevent the engine from cutting out.
When you are standing still and the car is shaking, by touching the accelerator very softly does the shaking stop? If so check the idle control valve.
I hope this will help.
Regards
Sam

2000 Nissan Pathfinder Rough Idle, Hesitating on Acceleration, Misfiring/Backfiring


Ok P0325 Knock sensor (Bank 1) There is a way to test the resistance, but I dont know the specific Ohms for your vehicle.
P0400 EGR Flow This means that there is a buildup of carbon and other things in all the passages that go to the EGR. Clean them out before looking at the knock sensor. Bad misfires can cause the knock sensor to go out of range. EricTheCarGuy has some excellent videos (youtube) explaining how to go about this.

2000 pathfinder will not start


Inside the distributor is the power transistor,its a six pin and two pin connector in the distributor this is not a servicable component,Housed in the distributor is the crank sensor,this is not a servicable component of the distributor,it has a common failure after a hot soak.Your solution is a whole distributor.

I have a 1988 nissan pathfinder that we just put new plugs, plugwires, distributer cap and roter button in and it starts great and idols but when i step on the gas it cuts out and backfires. i have tried...


Chek the throttle sensor and mass air flow sensors.

You did not mention at timing you have the engine, it should be at 8 degrees BTDC.

Sugges you have the crank angle sensor check out also. Is inside the distributor, and last check your power transistor, it has a screw and nut in the back, gets very rusty and prevents good ground contact.
