Question about Nissan Pickup

Need to get a real vacuum diagram of a 1994 D21 KA24E engine, 5speed, with air and power steering

I had A water leak in the engine. I had started by removing the head and progressed to the oil pan removing vac lines as I went. the hole was in the timing so I replaced the timing chain cover and all parts and gaskets. I'm putting it back together but can't follow the diagram in my one book covers all manual. Although it is good at mechanical details the vacuum diagrams are very hard to follow. I'm on a fixed income now and can't afford the Nissan shop manual for this specific truck. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you

How do you bleed the power steering on 2004 escape

CAUTION: If the air is not purged from the power steering system correctly, premature power steering pump failure can result. The condition can occur on pre-delivery vehicles with evidence of aerated fluid or on vehicles that have had steering component repairs.
  1. NOTE: A whine heard from the power steering pump can be caused by air in the system. The power steering purge procedure must be carried out prior to any component repair for which power steering noise complaints are accompanied by evidence of aerated fluid. Remove the power steering fluid reservoir cap. Check the fluid.
  1. Raise the front wheels off the floor. For additional information, refer to Section 100-02 .
  1. Tightly insert the stopper of the vacuum pump into the reservoir.
  1. Start the engine.
  1. Install the vacuum pump, apply vacuum and maintain maximum vacuum of 68-85 kPa (20-25 in-Hg).
  1. CAUTION: Do not hold the steering wheel against the stops for more than 3 to 5 seconds at a time. Damage to the power steering pump can occur. Cycle the steering wheel fully from stop to stop 10 times.
  1. Stop the engine.
  1. Release the vacuum and remove the vacuum pump.
  1. CAUTION: Do not overfill the reservoir. Fill the reservoir and install the reservoir cap.
  1. Visually inspect the power steering system for leaks.

I was out of my car and it started raining that with flood and now I got water in my oil could it be From oil pan

No the oil pan is sealed,unless you had a major hole. But you would have also had a oil leak.Water in oil is a sign of either a intake gasket or head gasket leak.

Why would I have a hole in my oil pan and water/oil mixed coming out on a 98chevy suburban vortex 5.7

Your hole in the oil pan is from some damage caused when the vehicle hit something over rough terrain, I am assuming since it is a 4x4. The mixture of water and oil is because you have some leak whether it is a blown gasket or maybe some hole internally in the engine. Do you notice a brownish foam at the end of the oil dipstick if you check the oil, that is usually a sign that water is seeping into the oil parts of the engine.

Water got into engine oil and car wont start now how do i get it started I DRAINED OIL NOW HOW DO I RESET SENSORS

Won\'y crank or won\'t start? Deal with crank first.

If it won\'t crank chances are there is water in a cylinderand the starter can\'t push past that. Yhe water in the oil came from somewhere. The engines cooling system? If you have water in a cylinder, you more than likely have a bad head gasket or cracked head. Find that cylinder! Pull all the sparkplugs. Now with no one in direct line with any spark plug hole and observing which hole ejects water, Tap the starter. The ctlinder taking water will spit it out,forcefully, so watch but don\'t stand in the way. This will show you what hole is taking water. The water seeps past the rings through the ring gaps and ends up in the oil in the pan..If water in cylinder proves present, the head will need to be remove. When you do so, verify your suspicions by examining the head gasket and surface of the head. The head should go to a machine shop for their inspection of condion and valve condition..Lots of miles, have a valve job done. It\'s all yours my friend, The won\'t start problem is obvious. Won\'t run on Water. If you dismantle this enginetop end, have all you specs and relative info in hand before diassembly. Timing Chain/belt

installstion and timing mark info. Head bolt torque specifications, Valve adjustment specs Take a picture, maybe more than one, of the top of the engine with the air cleaner and without air cleaner. Take several picture at different angles focusing hard on the routing of the hoses and vacuum lines. Take pictures of anything you feel you may need on reassembly.You can delete pictures, but you can\'t recall what miss your notice.. Hey! Keep in touch and feel free to ask if you need further assistance. We have plenty of the bestyou can turn to for help. Thank you and Good Luck _Ned_

yes it can you need to find the leak. vacuum line also controls the fuel into the engine. also clean the idle vale and change the air filter. you can use some washing up liquid with some water in a spray bottle to find the leak if you cannot hear it. run engine and spray onto the vacuum lines when it starts to make bubbles there is the leak. sometimes if it is a bad leak it will suck up the water and leave a dry patch

Wont idle

I had an '87 Celica doing the same thing and it was an intake manifold gasket that wasn't sealing-pulling in a lot of air. A lot more than a vacuum hose leak, which would only raise the idle a bit, but not cause the surging you are having and that I had. So check for a large air or vacuum leak. A rip or hole in the large intake boot may also be the source.
To check the manifold gasket, get a spray bottle filled with water and have someone keep the engine running at around 2000 rpm or higher. Soak the area all around the intake manifold gasket, wet it down pretty good. If any leaks are there, the water will get sucked in and cause a noticeable stumble in the engine, may even try to die. Check all hoses for vacuum leaks too, the large hose to the power brake booster.
If it's not a vacuum leak, try unplugging the MAF sensor and see how the engine runs. If it settles down, clean or check the sensor.

Water getting into the oil pan

You have a MAJOR collant leak! This could be a badly blown head gasket,a cracked head,or a crack in one of the cylinder walls(not good).If it's leaking that fast,it shouldn't be too hard to find,but you're gonna have to take a lot apart to find it(unless you have one of those high-dollar fiber optic camera tools).Remember,water will go straight to the bottom of the oil pan(oil floats on water),so don't run the engine with water in the pan.(You WILL destroy every bearing surface in the engine,making a real good boat anchor out of it).
