1997 Nissan hard body pick-up 2.4 won't idle and blows black smok

In morning temps, truck runs fine, but in higher temps, it won't idle and it blows black smoke. I replaced the mass air flow sensor, which didn't help at all with the idling. Are there any other solutions to this problem?

If its not the mass air flow sensor then you also have to check the timing belt or maybe you might have a vacume hose off or cracked or a passage is blocked or it could be your throttle body intake tube could be loose,off or cracked. then after checking all of the above replace wire harnest for the spark plugs and spark plugs and it should fix your problem.

Hi, the most common issue here will be with a faulty Fuel injector pressure regulator. it could be Mis-adjusted or, faulty. replace this regulator asap. here are some other uncommon check points that i would inspect as well below just to be safe.

1. Coolant tempreture sensor- this sensor may be disconnected or faulty. this may be the cuase of the high tmp as well.
2. Canister Purge Valve- this valve may be fualty. inspect thoroughly.

I suggest making sure you have a good ground cable and good connections on each end of the cable. Then check battery power with the truck running. You should have at least 13V at the battery with the truck idling.

Have 1987 nissan sentra wagon 1.6 carb.engine the problem is an idle problem when I start in the morning or when its had time to cool down I depress the accelorator pedel to set the choke and high idle cam...


Check your Ignition timing before anything
check your plugs see what color they are
red or orange means carb is to lean , black
or oil means to rich then you can go from there
and set mixture screws on carb , let me no how you make out .

Ac controls quit working blower fan is running on high all thetime. compressor is not working.


fan elays are under hood in black box by battery. 3 of them. 2 for high speed, 1 for low speed. Default is high speed when there is a probem.

Suspect maybe they shorted something out when fixing dent. Did they do any welding on the van? Connecting the cables to the body can sometimes send voltage where it's not wanted.

Choking in the morning and after rain, but it is gone after driving for 10 minutes


Pour a little water around the base of the coil while running and if engine stops running thats the problem.Coils tend to get small cracks that moisture gets into.Caused by engine heat and its own high operating temp.
