SOURCE: Nissan Terrano Chugging

When you are going up a hill, the engine is under an incresed load - requiring more fuel and spark, so I'd first check all of the ignition related items (Plugs/wires/cap/rotor), and it isn't a bad idea to replace the fuel and air filters if you haven't in a while. Once those are checked, it is very very common for a TPS (Throttle Position switch) to develop "dead spots"; where under accelleration they cause a "chugging", which sometimes is quite unnoticable - unless/until vehicle is under a load ( eg. driving up a hill). A new TPS can be installed and set with a multi-meter - probes attached to the proper terminals, and have the output voltage set at .47V to .50 V at idle (Closed throttle). I'd bet this is the cause, as they usually do not set a DTC (Code - Service Engine light) . It isn't 100% for sure, an air flow meter and/or other things can cause this type thing as well (also a weak spark or coil, etc), but highly unlikely - other malfunctioning parts often set trouble codes as well, and usually either malfunction or they don't. Hope this helps and if you find anything else - please let me know.

SOURCE: 93 nissan d21 4 cyl automatic trans wont shift

well there are a few reasons that could cause this problem some of which are easy fix others are a major fix.
1)The throtle valve cable could be out of adjustment, for this to be corrected it is best to be taken to a transmission shop, or you could buy a Chilton or Haynes repair manual to see how to adjust it yourself.

2)The O.D. solenoid (which depending on the transmission in the truck) is either inside or on the outside of transmission, could have a bad wire going down to it, or have a bad connection to it, or it may not any power getting to it /// First Check All Fueses on vehicle then locate where solenoid is the check wires for power. The solenoid could also be plugged or bad depending on condition of trans and the ATF.

3)In side the transmission the is whats called a Over Drive Clutch Pack and the cluthes could be worn out or completely gone this happens quite often with older vehicles. If this happens to be the problem then the only possible fix would be what is called a OVER HAUL in which the transmission is removed from the vehicle, disassembled, all clutches and damaged parts in side are replaced, then transmission is or should be cleaned and then reassembled and then the transmission is reinstalled back into the vehicle.

So depending on where you live there might be a transmission shop that might diagnose the exact problem of your 93 nissan and give you a quote on fixing it. Some shops do this for free other do not. My shop does this for free. So I hope this helps you with your truck.

The diesel injector pump for 1990 Nissan Terrano rebuilt and reinstalled. Transmission worked fine before, now it would not shift out of first. What could the problem be???

There's a throttle position switch on top of the pump ( black with wires coming out of it) . The transmission ecu needs this signal for the transmission to shift properly. Make sure it's plugged in and if it's not the switch may need setting.

Break and battery light stays on all the time

sold all over earth, what country> we cant guess this....
don't break the brakes....!!!
my guess, you meant the
brake lamps are on keys in pocket. and the battery lamp is dash(charge) glows, keys in pocket. right?
and battery cable kills all this illegal states above. sure.

86 nissan PU.
720 PU>? Datsun>?
or D21 Nissan ( 1986 Dat-SUNS became NISSANS. in USA)
Model years 1986.5 (second half) and later were called Nissan Hardbody Trucks, chassis code D21.

D21 are called HARD BODY trucks. mid year changes.
so???? which is yours.

as you might not ,know , the models are wired diffrent by different exact models and country.
long ago , i had the 86 with the VG30 V6...

so i will roll the dice and answer for

things off stay on, 101
bad wiring, hacked in wiring, radios,alarms and other things.
all can cause this..... its old and is common on old cars.
but if wiring is not hacked, (id see that in 10seconds in person)
no hacks.
gas engine car not diesel.
USA 86 body
Im looking now at the schematic and this car has a hot at all times
brake lamp switch. (foot pedal switch)
SO only a bad switch can cause this.... period
now the dash charge (battery ) light stuck on.

my online source ,has the alternator system missing.
so can not comment.
the lamp gets its power from the key switch
if the key switch fails , all warning lanps glow not just the
so its not that
my best guess is wiring errors, that put power the the cluster
key off. id bet that is it .

wiring errors to the ignition output is side, key switched power is failing.

Check transmission fluid after driving for a while, this could be down a bit. If 4 wheel drive, make sure it's in 2H.
