Question about Cars & Trucks
Check spark plugs, wires, and ignition packs. I had this issue with a sunfire after I changed plugs and wires, turned out to be the ignition packs. Fairly cheap and super easy to replace. Hope this helps!

Hi El Faraon,
I believe that you're dealing with 12 mm bolts and nuts....THESE ARE NOT THE SPECS FOR YOUR ENGINE, but I believe that if you use them you'll be close....Tighten in three stages up to 22nm....choose the bolts from the centre of the manifold and circle outwards until you reach the last one.....It may be a good idea to draw an overhead or plan view of the unit, marking out the bolt positions.....Start at the centre and mark the sequence and follow that....What is important is starting at the centre, so that nothing becomes warped....
Hope this helps,

my truck didn't do the crazy idling so much but it was running a little rough before it finnally died. it just wouldn't start back up. i changed the fuel filter i could hear the fuel pump working i finnally pulled a spark plug out and realized it wasn't getting spark. after hooking a computer module up under the dash it told me that the camshaft position sensor was out. the sensor is integrated into the distributor therefore you have to change the distributor to replace the sensor. hope this helps some, i'm actually trying to fix mine tomarrow

We are having the same problem. We are right now changing the crankshaft position sensor along with the intake and manifold gaskets.

The knock sensor is not a huge deal to replace and will not turn on the light. It should be dont though.
The crankshaft sensor is located directly between the engine and transmission. It is dead center at the bottom.

Have you changed all the plugs to platinum and wires? My xterra was doing that and I changed all of them and now it runs great. Also, I changed the distribitor cap and rotor button.
