Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

1997 nissan pickup 4 cylinder 1.8 ltr I believe. Oil is blowing back into the air filter. The small filter inside the air breather that catches the oil from the Rocker Cover gets filled with oil and leaks out of the air breather, and I have changed it 3 times. There is and never was a PVC valve coming from the rocker cover. What could be causing this???

Where is the intake air temperature located on a 1997 Nissan 4X4 hardbody pickup 4 cylinder?

The intake air temp sensor is a common issues on the '97, but I don't really know why. Look underneath the air intake box where the filter is housed. You'll see a harness, and a bulb-like device going inside the air box, that is the sensor. You can get one from your local auto parts store. I hope that you have found this information useful.

1997 nissan pickup 2 whl drive 2.4l oil is pouring from oil pressure sensor or oil filter when running. can not tell the exact location of leak but looks more like the sensor than the filter.

unscrew the sensor and replace. its a $10 part. The other problem could be a loose oil filter or an oil filter with two gaskets, this happens when an old gasket does not come off with the filter.

My 05 pathfinder will start losing oil pressure after about 3 or 4 minutes after being crunk. I can switch truck off and back on and pressure will return to normal then slowly fall out again. I have some...

the pickup tube in the bottom of the pan may be plugged up.
Is the inside of the engine slugged up?
is the oil clean?
if it is dirty inside the engine, you can add a quart of auto trans fluid to the engine oil. it has a lot of detergants and can sometimes break up some sludge related blockages.
It is best to change the oil in a couple of days after adding the ATF
Another thing i have done to try clearing any blockage to the pickup tube, is to remove the oil filter and with an air hose and nozzle, blow into the oil ports and listen for bubles in the oil pan.
Just some ideas.

Nissan pickup 1994

the pcv valve is behind the alternator between the alternator and oil filter. when you remove the oil filter you can see the pcv in the intake manifold. best way to get to it is through the pass side fender under the rubber mud flap thats between the wheel and engine.

97 Nisson pickup smoking white smoke (a lot)

this indicates that you have a blown head gasket. you may not have water in the oil pan but it's because the water is not leaking into your oil galleys,but instead leaking into the cylinders and being burned hence the white smoke.. there is a big myth that you will get water in the oil with a blown head gasket . there might be trace amounts but the only time you get water in the oil is if the heads crack or the block cracks othere wise most times it's just getting burnt in the cylinders,hence the great amount of white smoke. please rate this thanks.

Make sure the PVC system is not plugged or disconnected, this causes pressure in the crankcase and hence the oil in the air cleaner, seen it many times
