Nissan 240sx shakes and wont go past 3000 rpms

This car shakes a lot at idle and wont go past 3000 rpms. The fuel pressure gauge says it only has 20psi but Im not sure if the fuel pump is the culprit in this dilema. Any advice is helpful.

I have a 1990 nissan 240sx. It sat for 10 years. 36000 miles on it. I have replaced fuel pump n filter, full tune up, ECM, all injectors and starter. It does start but will idle high but will not stay...

if you have changed the ECM it is possible that you will have to reset/reprogram the ecm to the sensors of the vehicle. Find a nissan shop that has the ability to reprogram the ecm and reset it.

Why does my 1995 240sx bog and sputter

bad maf? happens once in a while especially with this 15 year old car. buy some maf cleaner for ^ bucks and spray the maf off the car. dont use anything to dry it just the spray. do what the previous poster suggested and id change the o@ sensor since its obviously a bad fuel to air ratio.

92 nissan 240sx wont run after 2500- 3000 rpms changed cap and rotor new wires w/ plugs starts right after dies timing is also good

a weak coil could cause that problem
could also be an issue with the ECM / PCM
low fuel pressure caused by a weak fuel pump, clogged filter or dirty injector(s)

if you haven't tried this already then you should. get some QUALITY fuel system cleaner / injector cleaner, and follow the directions.

hope this helps.

240 wont go over 2000 rpms starts to **** then blk smoke

I'm thinking MAP(Manifold absolute pressure sensor) but a reliable mechanic should be able to scan your ECU and find out for sure.Good Luck.

Nissan 240Sx 1993 idles fast when at a stop sign.

Sounds like a transmission problem. Possible torque converter clutch issue,means replace the transmission.

Have you checked fuel pressure at idle and 3k TO 4K RPMS? I once took a crown vic to a local dealer, wanted $1500 for new cats. I did a fuel pressure test, 15 lbs at idle, 0-5 at 3K RPMS and went to 0 lbs. when punched accelerator. Was a $6 fuel filter.
