WHAT ARE THE SPECS FOR FUEL PRESSURE, HOW MANY P.S.I SHOULD I HAVE IN FUEL LINE? 89 NISSAN P/U 2.4L


Generally speaking, modern gas fuel injected systems average 30-40+ psi. Older carburator engines only required 3-7 psi. High pressure in the injector helps atomize the fuel for better air-fuel mix. Check maufacturers specs and use proper tools to measure fuel pressure. Eye protection recommended.

What would cause the van to start spitting sputtering misfire when going up hill or encline


Could be clogged fuel injectors. I had a problem similar to this. Car ran okay on flat areas but would spit and sputter going up inclines. I took mine to an oil change place and they ran a cleaner through the system. This fixed the problem and I put an injector cleaner in with every 3rd tank of gas to keep this from happening again.

When u push on the gas it spits and sputters, it ran out of gas like 2 weeks ago and yes sometimes i do let it run low on gas. It spits and sputters when i turn a corner or go up a hill


Could be a clogged fuel filter, and or dirty fuel injectors. Try running some strong injector cleaner through it. It may take 2 or 3 times before it cleans the injectors out fully.
