Question about 1987 Nissan Pickup

Open Question

My 1996 Nissan Pickup will stall out while I'm driving down the highway. The engine is still running but if I push on the gas pedal it has no effect. However if I pull over & turn the engine off which isn't running smoothly wait a short moment restart the pickup, it runs fine like nothing ever happen.

SOURCE: nissa pickup wont idle at all

Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed and stall, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Your problem is most likely the air/fuel mixture at start-up. As the engine is cold the air is heavier and thus needs more fuel to obtain the correct mixture. If the computer is sound, you may want to go to a local parts store and get the codes read,. The FUEL PRESSURE REGULAOR, could be malfunctioning. Also, chack the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor. The COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR could also not be functioning. On your model there are TWO. One powers the guage, and the other is read by the computer to set the mixture. The spark plugs may be dirty, old, or too cold for your model. At start-up the engine needs a hotter spark to ignite the fuel, as at start-up the mixture is heavier and if the spark is "cold" the fuel isn't burned completely and this will cause a miss, as the engine loads up on unburnt fuel.

If it is running bad enough to be backfiring, the Check Engine light should be on. I would start with scanning the engine computer for fault codes.

1996 Nissan Pathfinders engine dies after driving approx. 1/2 hour, then will start and run for a short distance, what could be the problem. Please help!


Does it happen when idling is gear? (I.e. at a red light, then when you try to accelerate it stalls?) Have you tried keeping your foot slightly on the gas pedal? If so, this could be a vacuum seal problem. Get a Vacuum Gauge, then use this site to help determine what the exact culprit is:

Brake pedal went out on me going about 65 on the highway, was able to pump enough to get it under control. Brake company said brakes and diaphragn were fine, needed new master cylinder. Brakes went out...


it sounds like you've got an issue with the engine vacume line going to the booster. there's an in line one way check valve that keeps vacume in the booster in case of a loss of vacume, like if your truck stalled while driving. but there should always be vacume with the engine running. so check the vacume line going to the brake booster for kinks obstructions, and leaks.

ENGINE STALLS WHEN I STEP ON GAS PEDAL


Sounds like your fuel pump is going bad! The more you press on the pedal the more demand is on the pump and it cant keep up cuz its junk. Try to limp it to a shop to replace it, unless u wanna do that yourself.....
