Question about 1992 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

1984 Pickup Had to get towed today. Truck would not go into any gear after I stopped It seemed to not disengage and truck would shut down when braked to a Stop. Clutch pedal seemed to have no resistance when depressed. Truck has 95K Miles on it. this is the one with 8 Spark Plugs. It has 4 Wheel Drive also. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks. Sam welch 1992 nissan pick up.  would not go into gear when stopped at a traffic light. successful engagement only when stepping down hard on the clutch- almost further than the pedal was designed to go down.  once engaged, the truck is in gear once the pedal is moved off the floorboard by about 1/4 inch, then we launch! Master cylinder is 1/4 above minimum line about 3 months ago I noticed an "oil puddle" under the rear of the truck, forward of the rear LH tire.  not much, and I could not imagine where it came from.  checked the engine oil and it was fine.  starting to realize the probably the "oil stain" which stopped shortly after I saw it, and has not repeated may be related to the clutch problem, but not sure where.  Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.

Your slave cylinder for the clutch is leaking. It's on the bottom of the transmission towards the engine (follow the fluid trail!). Though it's not too difficult to replace, it IS messy. And be careful with what you touch when you have that fluid everywhere, it eats paint. Usually a new slave will come with detailed instructions on how to properly install and bleed it.
Good luck!

I have a 1984 nissan 720 pickup truck that i noticed idles high when stopped, then the idle goes low then high and back and forth. What is causing it?

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Ok please help I was pumping gas today when I was all done I get in my 1500 dodge ram pickup i start the truck (no problem) then I tried to shift my gear to drive the shift indicator was stuck!! WTF damn...

This truck has a park lock, this locks out the shifter unless the brake light is pressed, the electric solenoid that disengages the lock pin is powered by the brake light circuit, so the 1st thing you do is make sure the brake light work, if they do you have much more serious issue like a sticking release cable from the park lock solenoid.

The starter for my ford 460 stays running after gear is disengaged only have power to solenoid when key is in start position when the truck is shut off one can hear the starter whining down after shutting...

There is a spring in the starter that should cause it to disengage after the electricity is removed. Double check that the electricity is removed form the starter side of the solenoid, cause that is the easiest thing to check first. Then take the starter off and have it checked for free at your local auto store. If it seems OK to them it may be the starter is not the right one for the bell housing. If it sticks in to far, the starter gear may be stuck partly in the flywheel.

tow it! if the rear wheels skid, pull the plugs (1 per cylinder) and put some oil in each cylinder. Tow it and it should certainly turn over a few times. Then put back the plugs and jump start it
