My 94 3.0 nissan hardbody kingcab 4x4 is having trouble keeping a steady idle. it will drop almost completely to 0 rpms and and then jump back to over 1000rpms and repeat itself. upon driving on the highway it has cutoff when slowing to make a turn as well, several times. and even cut off when driving over speed humps. any ideas what to check before taking it to a mechanic?

The EGR valve sticking, loose wires, bad ground connections, dirty connections, fuel pressure dropping out, vacuum leaks, or any combination of several of these at about the same time.

How do i ajust the mixture screw on the 1985 nissan 4x4 kingcab pickup


If the engine is not running turn the screw all the way in and then turn it out 2 and half times
Start the engine and turn it in until the revs start to drop.
turn the screw out (keeping a count of the number of turns ) until the revs again drop
Turn the screw in half the number of turns that you screwed it out until the revs started to drop and that will be very close to set. If the idle screw is set so that the engine is idling too low or too high then adjust it in conjunction with the mixture screw anti you get it right

What can be wrong if scan tool cannot connect to ecu of Nissan hardbody 2006 4x4 3.3i v6


Does the scan tool light up, but doesn't connect. It could be wiring or the ECU. If the scan tool doesn't light up, check fuses. Most DLC connectors are power by the lighter /power point fuse.

I recently changed the sparks plugs on my 2007 Nissan Versa and now I am getting random idle problems while my car is in park. The car will idle from 1400 rpms them all of a sudden jump up to 2100 rpms and...


If your check engine light is on have it scanned for fault codes. Also check to make sure you don't have a vacuum leak, you could of pulled a hose loose accidently when you changed your plugs.
Signals from the oxygen sensor, and/or a bad throttle position will also cause engine surge.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

2005 Nissan Altima cuts off while driving.


Dear Tajack73: Nissan had a voluntary recall campaign on the 2002,2005,2006 Altima's with the 2.5 litre engines It envolves reprogramming the ECM.
The campaign ID # RD0712 NHTSA #: 07V-527
2005 Altima Vin's 1N4AL11**5C 100003-957025
1N4AL11**5N 400000-934180

The symptom you have described fits the one they have describe in the bulletin. Check with Nissan and see if your car falls within the campaign. Let men know how you do.
