If it runs rough only at idle with the AC on then it osunds like a the idle solenoid that causes the vehicle to idle up when the ac is on. if its during the entire RPM range then you might want to check your alternator or battery, perhaps one of them isn't supplying enough power to run the engine, lights and A/C

Nissan Frontier V6 2007 will not start in cold weather. Battery ok. Will crank but not start. Using battery booster will start and run fine. What would cause this?

You may have a failing starter. After about 5 - 7 years the battery begins to weaken it will allow your starter to kick but the starter itself may be too worn and too weak to keep your flywheel turning.

Ok I have a 2000 Nissan frontier 6cyl. I can start it but it will run for a few sec. Then as it's about to shut off its a rough shut down. I replaced the fuel filter. Still the same. I hear the fuel pump...

Have you checked the mass air flow sensor for contamination? Sounds as if the fuel pressure is adequate,but you have another sensor going out, Nissan's air flow sensors out more common problem.

1998 nissan frontier, while driving, the air conditioner will star blowing weak and hot and the truck starts getting weak and jerking.

Turn the air conditioning off, when it does that. The compressor is working too hard, and there may not be enough coolant or oil running thru the system, causing a lot of drag on the pulley belt, causing the truck to **** and "get weak". Have your air conditioning system completely checked before operating it again.

Heater not working

That's because you can't just "run a little". It takes time for the coolant to warm up.

Was running fine then stalled suddenly. when it started back run rough at an idle black smoke from exhaust then press the gas pedal and it quit now it will not start at all

I just had a similar situation. The truck would run fine and then the Service Engine Soon light would start blinking and the truck would go into "limp" mode. It would eventually stall. Strangley though, if I turned the key over and then restarted it, it would start right up and run again. It ended up being the IPDM (Intelligent Power Distribution Module) that was bad. It cost me $520 to replace it.

2001 nissan frontier 4x4 runs rough, jerky only at cruise speed. automatic. Read it was the coil, egr, ox sensor, or pcv? could it also be trans?

check your in-tank fuel filter: at speed debris turbulates inside your fuel tank and, can block the fuel pump inlet then fall off again and, your truck will operate well untill you speed up again the culprit is most often the fuel pump fishnet filter
