Question about 2001 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

1 Answer

Truck occasionally runs very rough...like running out of gas

I will be driving along and all of a sudden the truck starts "bucking"...the tachometer goes crazy (goes up and down). If I let off the gas or increase speed, it temp subsides. It seems like an electrical problem but I have had everything done to it and nothing has helped. All plugs, wires, cap replaced. All filters. Had fuel system cleaned numerous times. Mileage is at 196,000. This just started a few months ago.

Why is my car running bad and i get know error codes


The basics for a rough idle, check for a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum.
Problem at higher rpms, the basics, check for a blockage of some kind, the two things I think of first is fuel and exhaust.
I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, see if fuel pressure holds for a bit with everything off.
Could be other issues.

the dash voltage egulator probably went bad. First,check the battery & make sure you have 12 volts,not running. Check it again running & you should see about 14.5 volts. If that's good,I'd replace the guage assembly.

1998 Chevy c1500 suddenly started running rough while driving.


yes this could be contaminated fuel, pull a sample and let it set in a glass jar, if water is present it will separate out quickly, also could be a load of out of date gas, that will smell like paint thinner if u have it, if this shows ok then check your fuel pressure.
