I also have a nissan titan 05, and i was having the same problems, checked it out and it turn out to be some kinda fuel pump sensor that wasn't working properly and (lagging) the gas from going to the motor which could be the cause of the spudders ur getting. Fortunetly for me i still have the warranty for it and got it fixed.

Shacking or light vibration on you brake pedal, steering wheel kinda vibrates when you apply your brakes. It could be several things.

1. You might just need new brakes, because if it's shaking when you brake then that means your brake pads are seriously worn out and the brake metal is grinding with your rotors, this would make a loud squickie noise when baking. and can damage your rotors to the point they can't be fixed anymore.

2. You might need an alignment.

3. Your callipters could be broken and causing a rough shaking when the brakes are applied. (This can be very dangerous if driving like that.)

I suggest you take it to the shop and do a diagnostic to find out what's wrong.

Regarding your expired warranty: You should call them and ask if your truck qualifies for and extended warranty and set you up with a low monthy payment if your not able to pay it in full. They will ask for your miles that your truck has and they will make their discision based on that to see if you qualify or not. You won't loose nothing by trying.

These kind of repairs can be very expensive, and even more expensive if you don't fix them right away, so it's always good to have some type of insurance or warranty to cover that and a mechanic you can trust.

Received bad gas car is spuddering when I drive, what can I do?

The first thing you should have done was go back to the gas station and complained. If you can prove you bought the gas there, the station is on the hook for the cost of repairs. They have insurance to cover it. Then you take it to a shop to get it fixed.
You may have to change the filter screen in the tank since there is no external fuel filter on the car. And that injector may have to be replaced too.

I replace the fuel pump and crank positioning sensor and still the engine just spudders, i spray starting fluid and maybe it run good for 5 minutes and than in spudders again. please help DavidR

manufacturer decided they wanted a unique system of fuel injection, at least different then that of most systems. The control valve may act up and not allow fuel to inject at intervals. Instead, it may take be clogged with debri, gunk, and other trash which needs to be serviced in a shop to be repaired. One very common activity with your fuel injector is it may cause the valve to stay closed and burn gas in a manner that is inconsistent with normal gas usage, the vehicle will start to blow out black and dark smoke out the rear end, trick your cars oxygen sensor, and allow the system to burn a larger amount of fuel for the same mileage. This problem needs to be solved in a shop where the equipment is available to make adjustments and flush out your system.

Looses power why driving has trouble starting you can be going down the highway then it starts to spit and spudder all the sudden pull off and shut it off for about 15 minutes or so try to fire it up it...

A good pump and a bad one look identical; problem with the bad one is that after running for a while, it gets hat, begins to bind and then stops. Once cooled down, it will repeat the process. Even when pressure testing, it may "seem" fine but not be., 'till it gets bad enough to show up during testing. Your crank position sensor can act the same way, so can an ignition coil. (internal expansion during heating shows internal shorting.) When in "no start" check for spark. This should separate fuel problem from ignition related stuff. Then, go from there. Do real testing...guessing and replacing parts can cost you a fortune.

Titan engine light

If you disconnect the battery for 1 minute the check engine light will reset itself and should go off. The only thing is that if there is a problem that the computer detects after you reconnect the battery and start it up , the check engine light will come back on. If it does the best thing to do is take it to a shop and have it checked for codes and see what is causing the problem.
Best of luck and let me know if this helps you.
