Yes, I would use the Nissan oil filters. The filters have a check valve in them to keep the oil from running out them so you do not get a dry start.

2003 Nissan frontier truck. Running fine change the oil, oil filter,gas filter and know it won't start. When it did it back fired twice. There's no check engine light what happened?


Changing the fuel filter releases the pressure on the lines and drains the system. You need to cycle the key several times to prime the fuel lines again or keep cranking the engine till fuel pressure gets to the proper spec.

My 1985 nissan maxima keeps low oil pressure,I constantly have to fill it with up to qts. of oil,any solutions


Place a clean flattened cardboard under your car and see if it's leaking out. If it's not dripping oil, check your radiator for the presence of oil using a dye test kit available at NAPA. If there is a leak coming from under your car, try to determine from where it's dripping. Most common is an oil filter that hasn't been tightened properly or leaking oil sump bolt. A 1/4 turn on the oil filter should stop the leak, if its the sump... a new screw washer for the sump bolt will usually cure that. Check around the sump mounting bolts, if a fresh leak is evident, you will need a new sump gasket, don't try to tighten the existing bolts as it make leak worse! Tighten to torque specs. Otherwise, you are burning it up... exhaust smoke should be dark instead of light gray. White smoke indicates a blown head gasket and the oil is getting into the engine.

It could idled to low and not allowing the engine to maintain proper oil pressure at idle. It could be a bad filter or a bad sensor. Any of the above is dangerous as just a few seconds without proper oil pressure can damage it. I would get it to Auto Zone or somewhere and have it hooked to a computer immediately. AutoZone will check the codes for free, it only takes a few minutes to download and look up the codes They can tell you if the gas cap has been left in an insecure position. They are very good at diagnosing problems of all types.. .

Oil light keeps flashing, car full of oil


Low oil pressure could be the reason the oil light in your car will come on. Test your oil pressure. Without enough pressure, the oil will not reach necessary areas of the engine. The oil pressure sensor itself may sometimes become clogged with sludge from the engine, especially if the engine has not been properly maintained. A clogged oil sensor can give a false reading of low oil pressure, which will illuminate your oil light. So, check the oil pressure sensor light.

2006 ford f350 deisel turns over wont start unless i use starting fluid it then runs great. changed fuel filter oil filter and oil, wrench symbol came on went into engine fail safe mode, said something...


the diesel engine is a 6.0L or a 6.4L? because the 6.0L don't use electronic throttle control. they control the demand of diesel threw the high pressure oil system they have a sensor call injector pressure regulator. this sensor is responsible of maintain the proper pressure in the high pressure oil system so that the engine could start . i also suggest you to check if it is any leak on the high pressure oil system or if the low pressure system is delivering the pressure required for the high pressure system to work properly. to do that you most have a scan tool. also you can check the pressure of the diesel pump that its in the chassis to eliminate the high pressure oil system as the cause of your concern. if u don't have the proper gauges to check the pressure of the diesel pump you could remove the cap of the small fuel filter that is next to the oil filter remove the filter and put the ignition switch in the on position and see in the container if you have a fast or slow filling. if you encounter that the filling is too slow then your problem is with the fuel diesel pump that is on the chassis this pump is called HFCM, Horizontal Fuel Control Module

MY 2003 FOR ESCAPE WONT RUN IT SHUTS OFF WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR FOOT OFF THE GAS


The engine runs as long as you maintain pressure on accelerator? The most probable cause is a clogged fuel filter. Once the filter becomes clogged, when you release the accelerator, there is not enough fuel pressure to maintain the proper amount of fuel through filter. Have the fuel filter replaced and that should clear the problem.

How long can a 1997 ford expedition Engine live


An engine can run forever with proper maintenace. Proper maintenance includes regular oil changes, replacing plugs, wires, filters, sensors, water pump etc at regular intervals or when they fail. A properly maintained motor will almost always outlive the rest of a car.

I HAVE SAME PROBLEM


Make sure you are using a genuine Ford oil filter. The Ford filter has pressure valves in it to keep the oil where it belongs. Make sure you are using the proper weight of oil.

If the oil and filter are proper, it sounds like the oil pump pickup is clogged or there is excessive play in the crank bearings. The engine is running dry on oil because it is not pumping up until the oil is circulating completely through the engine.

Dont forget the fuel filter. An other thing you can do is have the catalitic converter replaced with a High Flow type.And there is always true duel exhaust.
