4 cyl. has water in oil has been running good, wouldn't heat thought thermostat, pulled dipstick,milky, pulled plugs normal, do not smell antifreeze in exhaust ??

You will need to remove the cyl head and check for corrosion and/or cyl head gasket. Best is to take the cyl head to a reputable machine shop for testing and service.

What different years of computers will work in my truck 1990 nissan hardbody

Well it depends.
Engine size, transmission type, and 2 or 4 wheel drive makes a difference.
So a 4 cyl will not work on a V6 and so on.
Some will work on 1990 and 1991, others have to be the same year as your truck.

I have a 1991 Nissan King Cab with a faulty starter. I also have a 1990 Nissan D21 starter that does work. Is there any way that I can use the 1990 starter in the 1991? I know that they obviously look

The 4 cyl starter for manual trans and automatic trans are different so I doubt you could interchange them.
You would have to measure the travel distance for the bendix gear and the mounting holes, plus the diameter of the nose to be sure.

Gas gauge in the dash malfunctioning - 1990 Nissan Hardbody truck

It sounds like the float on the sending unit is sinking. Don't know what the float is made of, but over time, it will soak up gas and start to get heavy. This would cause your problem. I don't think it's the gauge, but if you want to test it, disconnect the wires at the tank. The gauge will either go to full or empty. If you ground the sending wire, the gauge should respond the opposite way it was. good luck

I have a 1.8 n13 sohc pulsar that will not start. It has spark and fuel but compression seems low. Cyl 1 - 100psi, cyl 2 - 80psi, cyl 3 - 100psi and cyl 4 - 70psi. I would like to know what acceptable...

It might have a damaged valves caused by slipped timing belt making the piston and valves banged each other. That is why the compressions are low. Big job.

Car off rd for 1yr. when i picked car up drove it ran rough on like 6 out of 8 cyl 1990 cad deville, mech. checked every thing said posibly fuel injectors at cyl 2and 4, car runs rough, miss or stalls new...

did you use the gas that was in the tank? when gas sits for that long the oil and water separate. this is the most common reason that cars run like **** after sitting for so long. you may want to siphon the old gas out and put new in.
