Question about 1985 Nissan King Cab

Fuel tank gunk

I have a question in regards to the fuel tank on my 1985 Nissan king cab pick up truck. It has a new fuel pump , filters, lines appear to be clear..When driving the truck appears to be suffocating , not getting fuel, bogs down and dies. It had sat for a long time and previously was driven on empty a lot. Is it possible that the tank is full of shit, which would cause this ? Im not sure if the tank needs to be removed or if there is a cap or plug on the tank which would allow a through draining and cleaning. thanks for any and all help

    1985 Nissan Truck
    Starts right up and idles fine but tries to die when attempting to give it any gas.
    I can drive it but I have to rev it like crazy and it hesitates, boggs and has very little power.

The 4X4 had a drain plug on the tank. Try running 93 octane fuel with a couple of bottles of dry gas in it. should clean everything out.

No fuel to carbarator

I am not familiar with this particular pickup, but you can start with checking the basics. If you take the line loose where it enters the carb, do you have fuel coming out when you crank the engine?(be careful to not spill fuel). If yes, then the carb float jet or input filter may be clogged. A carb rebuild will probably be in order. If there is no fuel at the input to the carb, check the fuel filter and fuel pump (this may be in fuel tank... not certain on that vehicle). Other possibilities are a crushed or kinked fuel line. I hope this helps you track down your problem.

92' Nissan king Cab won't start

If you can not duplicate the problem on demand, it will be very difficult to find and know that it is fixed.
Do you know if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors when it is hard to start ?
There is a long list of choices, including a faulty relay, fuel pump, ignition module, coil, and so on.
You have to know if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.

I have a nissan navara 4x4 2.5 di o5 plate i was on the motorway and all of a suddon i lost power then it picked back up again with a puff of smoke it will not let me go over 60mph it will pick up then die...

When were the fuel filters changed.sounds like you have water in the fuel.Drain the tank and try new fuel after changing fuel filter.If it was in limp mode you would not get the revs droping down then smoke then picking up.Limp mode only alows you to do about 40mph.
