Question about 1999 Nissan Frontier

1 Answer

My 1999 Nissan frontier at times loses power and shuts down like it is a vapor lock, but will start back up. I have changed fuel filter, distributer, plugs, wires. What could be causing this?

You do not say wether check engine lite is on or if there are codes, the fuel pump may be the culprit and be worn out and getting lazy, which can cause this problem.
Fuel pump pressure can be checked with a gauge to verify condition of pump.

2003 Nissan frontier truck. Running fine change the oil, oil filter,gas filter and know it won't start. When it did it back fired twice. There's no check engine light what happened?


Changing the fuel filter releases the pressure on the lines and drains the system. You need to cycle the key several times to prime the fuel lines again or keep cranking the engine till fuel pressure gets to the proper spec.

Ok I have a 2000 Nissan frontier 6cyl. I can start it but it will run for a few sec. Then as it's about to shut off its a rough shut down. I replaced the fuel filter. Still the same. I hear the fuel pump...


Have you checked the mass air flow sensor for contamination? Sounds as if the fuel pressure is adequate,but you have another sensor going out, Nissan's air flow sensors out more common problem.

I have a 93 nissan 240sx with the KA24DE engine. I have been getting vapor lock after running the car for a little while and parking it. When I get in the car it will turn over for about a second then...


It's possible that the fuel system is slowly leaking down somewhere. Nissan injectors are known for leaking at the intake where they connect to the rail. Also, if the check valve in the pump is bad, fuel could be running back to the tank. The engine needs 30 psi in the fuel rail before the engine will start so if the system leaks down somewhere while the car sits, it will take a little while for the pump to build pressure again. If you can connect a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail, you'll be able to watch the pressure after you shut the engine down. It should hold residual pressure for a long time, if it doesn't, you will need to find where it's leaking down to.

Actually vapor lock refers to a condition in the intake manifold on a carbureted engine. You don't have vapor lock. What you may have is a filter inside the tank, its nicknamed a sock. Its a fine mesh screen and may be plugging up. When you pull the fuel line the fuel flows back and unblocks a small section , until it starts too **** again and re plugs. You may also have fuel pump that starts to lose power when its gets hot. Lee

Loses of power and engine miss


it may be fuel pump ? how much fuel is in the tank ? these trucks are famous for their fuel pumps overheating when the fuel level gets below half or sometimes evem a quarter tank. if the fuel tank is full you may want consider replaceing the fuel filter (as a good routine maitenance procedure)and see what happens then.
