Question about Cars & Trucks
The motor has got no performance and when it idles it is slightly going off balance. The motor when running has got a miss and it backfires when going downhill and uphill. All parts replaced as specify in Question. The pipes coming out of the engin becomes very hot and even some red. Please help??????
Sounds like its it either running weak timing so rewrite the post with a better description of whats wrong and how it performs on drive cycle and how the idle sounds ,but make sure the timinjg is set to 6? BTDC for 95 unleaded fuel and exactly what type of engine or vehicle this vehicle is and the age of course also if its a manual or a automatic

Testimonial: "Thanks. the vehicle is a 2.4 12 valve fuel injection 2001 model Nissan hardbody. The engin on idle lets the body slightly vibrate.In drive mode the engin misfires and backfires with not a lot of power. I checked the spark plugs and they are all wet and black. I can smell the petrol on it. After a drive the vehicle smells with fuel."
Sounds like a timing issue start there good luck

Was this fixed yet? I can't imagine four months of this. Check with some folks in your area that might be able to personally look at your car, ask here: http://www.lincolnsonline.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=261

You need to test the catalytic converter, these were a common problem. You can do this by removing the oxygen sensor in front of the cat and driving it. It will be noisy, but the open hole will allow excessive back pressure to escape and it will drive better if the exhaust is restricted.

SOURCE: i changed sparkplugs, and
You either have a bad ignition module or a
vacuum leak,intake manifold,PCV Hose,etc
that effects cyl #3
Ohm Checking is for the 1980's
Todays tool is an oscilloscope, you won't
have at home.
Also Smoke the intake and EVAP System
for leaks (EVAP Smoke Machine)
