Question about Nissan Pickup
Truck will die after driving a while and will idle and then die whats going on?
More information would be helpful. It sounds like a fuel pump issue. What year and model is the truck? How many miles and what other problems are accompanying this issue? Nissan had a problem with their wiring harness on many frontier and Xterra models around 2000 model. The wiring harness on top of the fuel tank would corrode and lose contact with the fuel pump. Most would die while driving with no warning. Some would exhibit signs like your. Drive for a while then die. Bumps would some times effect the running of the vehicle too.

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

Sounds like the injectors may be bad or just really dirty. You say that the truck is only used as a plow truck, so I would assume that it sits alot. If you dont add any fuel stabilizer to the tank, the fuel will start to degrade and the will gum up your injectors. One thing you can do is to pull the air cleaner assembly off and look at the injectors while the truck is running. Look at the bottom of the injectors while it is running. The injectors shouldbe spraying fuel with a fan spray of fine mist. If you see any drips of fuel in the this fine mist, that injector is at least dirty or on its way out. I would recommend that you change your fuel filter and then get some fresh fuel and the purchase some Seafoam fuel injector cleaner from your local parts store. Dont mess around with anything else. GET SEAFOAM. If it is in a plastic bottle it is not strong enough to do anything. Seafoam is in a metal can. Dump the seafoam in and run the truck as much as you can. This will help clean out the injectors.

Those Fords Have Problems With The IAC(Idle Air Control Valve) On Top Of Intake By Throttle Body. It Might Even Be Making Some Weird Noises? If Not Check Timing, And Fuel Preasure.....Check For Vacumme Leaks. Good Luck

Most Likely a vacume leak. Check the engine and surrounding engine bay for a loose hose. I would check the mass air sensor, make sure it is free of debries.
