Question about 1998 Nissan Pathfinder
When first starting truck and driving no problem after 10 minets truck begins to back fire and when i excelerate it loses compression and wonts to stall i have replaced fuel filter, gas tank , new plugs and wires,fuel filter,air filter. put fuel injection cleaner in tank and still have same problem.my tack gage fluxuating up and down. please help.
Backfiring after warming up can be from many things.
One that comes to mind is carbon deposits on valves, causing them to not close properly. The carbon deposits would also heat up and then ignite air/fuel mixtures before the spark plug can fire.
Or you would have hot exhaust gasses leaking back into the cylinder on intake and that would ignite the fuel.
Tac gauge fluctuating, and engine running rough on acceleration could be a vacuum leak, do you hear a hissing sound when the engine is running? listen closely under the hood. If you have a vacuum leak you would lose power and your RPM would fluctuate oddly. As for the backfire however, there are probably more than just one problem. Its hard to say for sure.
So please, more details, noises you hear, when exactly everything happens etc.
What speed and RPM the engine begins to bog down at, does it stall? What range is ur tac fluctuating at? anything you can think of, throw it on there.
Hope this helps you
