I would want to monitor fuel pressure as the engine warms up. But it could also be a coil or ignition module problem, even a relay.
Any chance the check engine light is on ?

Hello I would think if you replaced all those components, It would lead me to say its the ignition module, Or Pickup coil, they are both located under the distributor Cap. Fairly Easy to change should take about 15 to 30 minutes depending on you mechanical ability. I sure hope that Helps you out. If not get back and we can do somemore trouble shooting, For spark,fuel pressure. Ect.. Thanks Hopefully that will get you going.

I HAVE A 2000 CHEVY S10 4.3 ENGINE coil sparks but no spark from distributor. can the cam sensor cause this problem?


If you take coil wire loose from distributor cap and hold close to engine ground, engine cranking, does a spark jump? If it does, make sure rotor turns when you crank it. The pink wire at the coil goes hot with key on, that is primary voltage, use a test light, is it hot? That voltage comes from ecm fuse1--15 amp, check voltage with key on.
If sensor issue, my first thought would be the crank sensor. Just my opinion.

Truck starts fine and idles ok. spits and sputters at 2000 to 2500 rpms and will not rev over 2500 rpms. i've already replaced the MAF sensor.


CLOGGED FUEL FILTER OR CLOGGED FUEL INJECTORS.WILL CAUSE SPUTTERING AND MISFIRE.LEAKING EGR VALVE WILL CAUSE ROUGH IDLING SPUTTERING.

Hello I have a 2000 Frontier 2 wheel drive and I'm not sure what's going on with it, @about 2000rpm the engine wants to jump and spit and sputter I have replaced the fuel filter, plugs, wires, and the...


your feeling what Nissan refers to as limp mode (also known as fail safe ) Nissan computer strategy is when its detects a computer sensor (that could cause engine damage)has failed,or your engine for any other reason is running in a way that could cause severe engine damage is to make your engine run at limited rpm until the concern is repaired,I would assume your check engine light must be on, if not the bulb in the dash may be bad, anyways the best route is to have the engine control module scan for trouble codes which will get you headed in the right direction.

You have a bad cam sesnor in the distributor- for certain. Rich Porter on ebay has the best reman for $200. Guaranteed fix. 99 was famous for this, runs cold for 15 mintues then acts up and quits, tach usually jumps around too.

My 2000 Nissan Frontier has sputtering problems and the tac goes crazy. changed the fuel pump, sending unit, spark plugs, cap & rotor. what could be wrong?


your tach is run by the engine computer, possible cause. also by the crankshaft position sensor, most likely cause, I would start there. some sensors will run within perimeters and be bad enough to cause a lot of problems

2000 nissan frontier going down the highway and just shuts off when i took the distributor cap off the rotor button was not turning as i turned the truck over is that a bad distributor


I'm not familiar with your car, but the distributor rotor should turn whenever the engine is cranked, if not check to make sure the rotor screw isn't missing (if it has one, some are held in with a spline instead), try spinning the rotor by hand if the rotor turns but not the shaft the rotor is broken, if the shaft spins the drive gear pin is sheared or the cam gear is shot.
