Question about 2000 Nissan Frontier

1 Answer

Engine won't run....

I was driving down the freeway and just suddenly lost power. I pulled over to check things out and everything was fine... got back in and started down the road. About 10 mins later I started losing power again and the truck was running on about 2-3 cylinders. then it just died. It would turn over and try to start. I could get it to run after using starting fluid, but it was very ruff, no power at all and would only get to about 2100 rpm with the pedal to the floor. I had it towed home. The following morning I tried to start it and the same thing using starting fluid... except after running for about 3 mins...it would die and not restart at all. I checked the fuel pressure and I have 44 psi at the injector rails. Also checked spark and there appears to be plenty... I checked two of the spark plugs and both are bone dry after cranking for about 1 min. I have never had a problem with my truck till now... (EDIT) I solved my problem... It was the distributor.. the fuel injection firing timing sensor was bad (located under the rotor assembly in the distributor)... Replaced whole distributor with a new one...

    Thanks.......I finally broke down and went to a dealer and discovered that the distributor injector timing pickup was dead......Just replaced it and it fixed the problem...also the sensor on the throttle body that controls the idle was hosed. But I have not replaced the throttle body part yet as the part is 300 bucks and the idle is just a little fast at 1100 rpm

sounds as if you may be looking in the wrong spot. If different gearing is drastically changing the symptoms you may want to check the trans. or torque converter. sudden pop with engine rpm increase and lack of power sounds like possible band breakage in transmission or impellor breakage in torque converter.
