Question about 2002 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

3 Answers

Have a 2002 Nissan Frontier 3.3L V6 that won't accelerate appropriately and acts as if the engine is flooded and stalls out while refusing to rev over 2,000 RPM.

Started out thinking it was a fuel flow problem, changing the fuel filter but to no avail. Took it to a mechanic and he changed the fuel pump, but the problem still exists. Gave the engine a tune-up, changing the distributor cap, spark plugs, and plug cables, but again the problem persists. The only thing I can imagine it to be now is either a sensor gone bad, the catalytic converter, or the ECM/ECU. However, I'm not sure and have already dumped a small fortune....any information will be appreciated. (The SES light has been on and the mechanic checked the codes and claimed it was the fuel pump....however it still is lit despite him clearing the code)

Try to check the emission components. Check also the MAF and the throttle position sensor.

If you have replaced the crank sensor and the code comes back, it may be a problem with the wiring harness or connector, or the plate the sensor reads.

2002 NISSAN FRONTIER FUEL LINES


Check the fuel pressure, it is likely the pump is defective. The pump is located inside the fuel tank. Also try spraying starting fluid into the engine to see if it starts, this may bring the p[ump to life from the increased system voltage to the pump. If that doesn't work and you have a no start still you have other problems.

2001 Nissan Frontier XE V6 3.3L 4x4 Acceleration problem?


Depends but sounds like one of two things to me. First and foremost it sounds like a bad torque converter. Was this replaced with OEM or upgrade when the engine and trans was done? Have you check the transmission fluid? Is it the proper fluid? Proper fluid is extremely important in proper operation and 99% of the time people put the wrong fluid in. It could also be a transmission filter whether external or internal unfortunately.... does it show any check engine lights? I would imagine if it did you would have posted that because I've seen mass air flow sensors make cars act weird like that but to be honest it sounds more like a transmission issue.

Replace the transmission range switch for starters, if that doesn't correct the problem you have have a shorted shift solenoid on the valve body inside the transmission.

I would get a second opinion on your alternator. Does your battery light come on while your driving? That can be an indicator of an alternator going bad. Also, there's an easy way to check the alternator yourself if you have access to a multi-meter. Turn the multi-meter on to DC volts and start the car. Put the positive lead on the positive battery terminal and the negative lead on the negative battery cable. While the car is idling, the meter should read 12.5 - 13.5 volts. Have someone rev the engine. With the increased RPM's the meter should read over 14 volts. If the voltage goes down when you rev the engine, your alternator is bad.

Good Luck!

common fault in this vehicle is air flow meter and temp sensor, if temp sensor fault normally will blow black smoke at the tail pie, air flow meter will have symptoms as you described.
