Question about 1999 Nissan Pathfinder
After a few minutes of cranking the engine of my 1999 Pathfinder, it starts to fail, loosing lots of power and even it shuts down while running, no matter how much speed it is running. A mechanic scanned my vehicle and it indicated that it needed a little part inside the ignition. He changed it, but the problem never got solved. I've spent a lot of money looking for what it is (gas pump, gas tank draining, air filter, spark plugs, etc.) I don't know what to do with it. Please, any advise.
It could be one or all of 4 sensors. the MAF, the MAP or the idle position sensor or dirty fuel injectors. the fuel injectors can be cleaned with an over the counter fuel injector cleaner bottle that you pour in your tank.If these do not fix it, it will be the EGR valve or a vacuum leak to the EGR. Check the fuel injectors first by buying the cleaning product. then check for vacuum leaks around the Fuel injector housing. Buying some starting fluid and spraying it over the small hoses while the car is running will make the engine stall when the fumes from the starting fluid get into the system. then have it scanned again to more or less tell which sensor it is. it could very well work with the fuel injector cleaner.
