1988 Nissan Terrano/Pathfinder big problem!!!!

Have you all checked the Oxygen sensor? And the Mass Airflow sensor? Either of those could do it. If both of those check out, make sure the fuel pump relay is kicking in/out, and make sure it works period.

I have a 1988 pathfinder that misses, has black exhaust, the plugs foul quickly and I am thinking it is the TBI injectors?

Check your valves. This will cause your problem if they do not seat properly. Leakingvalves will foul out your pluggs real quick and cause missing. On your 1988 pathfinder.

I have a 1988 nissan pathfinder that we just put new plugs, plugwires, distributer cap and roter button in and it starts great and idols but when i step on the gas it cuts out and backfires. i have tried...

Chek the throttle sensor and mass air flow sensors.

You did not mention at timing you have the engine, it should be at 8 degrees BTDC.

Sugges you have the crank angle sensor check out also. Is inside the distributor, and last check your power transistor, it has a screw and nut in the back, gets very rusty and prevents good ground contact.
