Its just fouled some plugs again. Need an overhaul. If you just put a valve job on it it will just put more stress on the rings and will need it anyway. Not much you can do except change plugs all the time!

SOURCE: 1999 nissan frontier is idling rough the truck

This can be your Idle control valve, when you turn the air on it puts the engine under load and your computer will increase the idle automatically to prevent the engine from cutting out.
When you are standing still and the car is shaking, by touching the accelerator very softly does the shaking stop? If so check the idle control valve.
I hope this will help.
Regards
Sam

SOURCE: I have a 95 nissan sentra and it keeps idling

Check vacuum leaks , by spraying carburator cleaner around intake manifold gasket and vacuum hoses connections . See if engine picks up the idle speed while you doing it , and if it does , locate leak and fix it. Most common , intake manifold gasket brakes.

  1. The button says, Solve It. This may not be a simple problem. The bottom line is you need 4 things to get a 4 cycle engine to run. Compression, spark, fuel/air mix AND they all have to be there at the right time. Spark can be checked by putting one of the old plugs on the head along with the plug wire. Try to start the engine and see if you see the spark. (Yes, you will probably need somebody to turn the key for you.) The compression can be checked with a compression gauge but I'll assume this vehicle ran before you made changes and it's difficult to ruin that component. Fuel can be "injected" using a squirt bottle. (Don't do this with the engine turning over) Remove the intake housing between the air filter and the throttle body. If you don't know what that means then stop reading and take your vehicle to a mechanic. Once you have access to the throttle body open the butterfly and squirt about a tablespoon of fuel into the opening. Another option is to get a can of starter fluid. Spay no more than one second from the can. Get all fuel back from the intake and see if it will start and then dies. You will need to hold the gas pedal about half way down and of course let it up if the engine starts. If it starts and then dies you have a fuel flow problem. If you don't see the spark from the first test you have a firing problem. The spark should be a solid reddish/blue color. If it's a weak yellowish color you may need a new distributor. I think the coil is built into the distributor. If you have a good looking spark, good compression, fuel and it still doesn't run then you probably have a timing problem. Enough of my two cents...

If there is no spark to the plugs, you may have inadvertently blown a fuse for the ignition system when changing other parts. Check the fuses in the box under the dash or under the bonnet. Also have a look and make sure the little carbon brush pickup hasn't fallen out of the distributor cap. Its the little black thing in the middle inside of the cap. It is spring loaded and sometimes can fall out.

No fire for 2004 nissan titan,replaced crank position sensor,throttle body(TPS sensor),spark plugs,fuel pump.


How about the high voltage coil, the high voltage wires to the distributor cap, the cap itself and the rotor inside. Any one of these could be the problem.

What are all of the parts needed for a tuneup for my 95 quests


Spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and distributor rotor. If you replace all of these you would be doing what is called a major tune-up.

A regular tune-up would be just replacing the spark plugs.

You can check the integrity of the plug wires and distributor cap by spraying them with water while the engine is running. If the engine runs ruff, stall, or you see spark arcing from either the wires or the distributor cap than they will need to be replaced.

The distributor rotor always gets replaced when you replace the distributor cap.

You can also spray the coil with soapy water to see if it is leaking as well.

'95 nissan quest stalled at a stop. Will not start, only cranks


I worked on a '93 Quest last year. Couldn't find out why it wouldn't start. It was the distributor shaft not held onto its rotating gear. The roll pin had come out of the gear on the end of the distributor shaft. When the distributor cap was off, the rotor was turning with the shaft while the engine was cranking. So I thought that was okay. But when I put my finger on the rotor and it stopped turning, that is when I found out the problem. It's a stretch, but maybe the techs missed it. Take the cap off, and if you can spin the rotor either way just by hand, the distributor gear has come loose.

Looks like they really covered a lot. I suppose next they will you to replace the ecu. Good luck.

Sounds like a plugged catalytic converter especially if the engine light isn't on. Just open the exhaust system ahead of the converter and see how it runs.

Rigoe the points for the timing belt are usually located on the sprokets in conection with marks or dots on the engine block some where around the sprockets that hold the timing belt. Remenber to bring the piston number one to TDC (top dead center), this means you have to locate the piston number one, take the spark plug out and turn the cranshaft (the one with the pulley) by hand until the piston is all the way up. On the distributor the rotor should point to the spark-plug wire number one (you can make a mark outside of the distributor cap where the number one spark-plug wire is pointing so when you take the cap off you can see if the rotor is pointing the same direction). With the timing belt cover off you are going to be able to aling all this points at the exact locacation all together. So we have: Piston number one at TDC, The rotor(enside the distributor cap) pointing to the number one spark-plug wire, and the mark of the sprockets pointing the marks of the engine block( litle dot or dash). If you get all this right you are have done a good job and ready to make a trip you can get all this just by turning the cranshaft by hand with a rachet and a big socket. God bless you.
