SOURCE: 1997 Nissan XE dashboard vibrates at high and low

If it is a manual transmission and has high mileage or has been driven rough I would check the pilot shaft bushing in the back of the crankshaft. The is sometimes called a pilot shaft bearing because some have needle bearings in them. Anyway it receives the pilot shaft from the transmission and keeps the transmission lined up with the engine. When they wear out and become egg shaped they allow the pilot shaft to spin off center and vibrate. Your problem also could be a condition called "clutch chatter". That is cause by the flywheel not being flat to receive the clutch. When this happens the clutch and flywheel are trying to become one unit while spinning and if they aren't both flat proper clutch engagement isn't possible. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a 1984 nissan 720 pickup truck that i noticed idles high when stopped, then the idle goes low then high and back and forth. What is causing it?

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Why is my 1998 nissan altima keep shutting off at stop light?

Does it lunge forward a couple times when stopping? (Acts like a standard that the clutch wasn't pushed in while trying to stop). If so There is a solenoid inside the transmission that may cause this. If not second guess may be that you have a vacuum leak somewhere. Does your engine run rough? Or High idle?

Valve timing settings for nissan navara 1999 ka24de many thanks wayne.

There is a lot to this. Your best choice is to get the Haynes Repair Manual on the vehicle so you have that to reference. The Number one valves are set for the compression Stroke, this is where you want them, when both valves are closed. The little Key on the Front where the Timing belt mounts will be toward the 12 o'clock position.

Can engine valves be adjusted on the 1997 nissan

valve tick is completely normal on a KA24DE. if you dont, start running a full synthetic oil. KA's are bullet proof, the motor will last 300k with no real problems...valve tick is nothing. I own 2 nissan 240sx, they have the same motor as your truck. i have a good amount of experience with them. hope that helps

Where is the pcv valve located on a 2000 nissan xterra

Here are the Positive Crankshaft Ventilation maintenance sections of the service manual for both the KA24DE (V4) & VG33E (V6). It doesn't really show where the valve is, but you can figure it out from the pics below. It's on the breather separator.

Choking in the morning and after rain, but it is gone after driving for 10 minutes

Pour a little water around the base of the coil while running and if engine stops running thats the problem.Coils tend to get small cracks that moisture gets into.Caused by engine heat and its own high operating temp.
