Question about 1987 Nissan Pickup

3 Answers

87 Nissan pickup

This is carburated 4 cylinder, that is missing(strong like cutting out) under acceleration. Once the RPM are over 2000 there is not a noticeable problem, constant once the engine is warm but less noticeable when cold. I have checked for vacuum leaks, checked the timing, replaced the plugs, wires, 02 sensor, fuel and air filter , none of these had any affect. Any ideas?

May also want to check the EGR valve. Mine was full of carbon and not opening correctly and doing the same thing. If it is full of carbon you can clean it with a strong carb cleaner. I recommend auto zone brand carb cleaner in the blue and yellow can. Its cheap and way better than most name brand carb cleaners. Be careful not to spray it on paint or rubber hoses. I recommend removing the EGR valve to fully clean it.

Check the distributer cap and rotor for cracks and make sure the rotor shaft bushings are not worn out

Posted on May 27, 2008

    Take the cap and rotor off and grab the shaft the rotor mounts to and try to move it side to side. If it moves more than about 1 mm, you may need to replace them. Another sure sign is uneven wear on the cap and rotor contacts. The wear marks should be fairly consistant on all the contacts. Does your engine have 4 or 8 sparkplugs. If it has eight, try unplugging either the lead or trail coil one at a time, and see which makes the problem worse. If the lead makes the prblem worse, then the trail system is the problem.

Why does my check engine light keep coming on for the same codes?


Cylinder #2 is misfiring (P0302) and the Trib is Misfiring at startup (P0316). Mazda Tributes and Ford Escapes are notorious for cylinders going bad. You can either change each cylinder as it decreases in performance, or suck it up and do them all at once.

My pontiac g5 will make a noise when i accelerate


I had a similar issue with my Windstar van. Both the owner and chief mechanic drove it and reported hearing a "tic" in the engine. Solution? With fuel down to 1/4 tank, added Lucas upper cylinder lube and filled up with premium. Big improvement but I repeated the treatment with regular fuel just to be sure.

Stumbling on acceleration


You may be cruising down the wrong road with the exhaust idea but then you might be right. An exhaust restriction should also cause the engine to run hot. A faulty cat should also set some codes.
If the injectors are dirty, you may have a very lean fuel mix on one or more cylinders under acceleration, which would go away once you are not under load. And injector problems won't set any codes unless an injector stops working completely. Low fuel pressure could cause the same type of issue.

Toyota Rav 4 1997 .Check engine comes on .Codes are P0301,302,303,304116 . What to do.


The engine coolant temperature is high. Your other Codes are for missing cylinders on cylinder 1,2,3,and 4. Get the Codes cleared and start over. Changing the plugs and wires,etc could have generated the missing cylinder Codes.

Autozone,Advance, and Oreilys will scan for free.

Check your engine for an IDLE SPEED CONTROL SOLENOID, which may be in the intake. Or a fuel pressure regulator.

A lot of times people work on the spark side and forget the fuel injectors. They can cause a miss.

Have a 4M41 engine in the 2007 mitsubishi triton and when under acceleration between 2000 - 2600 rpm the engine hunts or surges and then clears after 2600 rpm. It is more noticeable in 3/4/5 gears only...


It needs a programming check of the accelerator pedal via ecu of the engine. All previous activity of the system is recorded in the ecu which can be corrected in the dealership of mitsubishi.

97 k1500 5.7 liter vortec misses on cylinders 3 and 5 while idling. about 1500 rpm only cylinder 3 and 4 miss then at 2000 rpm only cylinder 4 and 8 miss. what could cause this?


I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now
