Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup

2 Answers

I bought my '97 Nissan Pickup a couple months ago, and recently put in a complete fuel system cleaner. I don't think the previous owners had done that in a while, because shortly afterwards the truck would randomly start puttering like it was out of gas, but would eventually catch on and keep going. I changed the fuel filter (which when I took it off, it looked like pond water coming out) and it helped a lot, but it is still doing it. What should I do?

Remove the fuel tank and clean out
Replace the fuel pump,only because it is out, and also may be going bad, having run whatever you got in the tank through it
Replace the filter again

This may only be me, but---Fuel Injector Cleaner and ALL other products, at the parts store,are a waste of money
Excellent advertising and marketing though

Have you ever put in the gasoline tank any fuel injector cleaner yet because your injectors which injects the fuel of gasoline, if the injectors are not injecting enough fuel into the piston chambers that the fuel injectors needs to be clean to allow enough fuel to come in so go buy injector cleaner at autozone and put the whole thing into the gasoline tank and then drive. Your fuel injectors are clogged or going serious bad on you so you might have to replace them as well but first try to put fuel injector cleaner and see.

It is probably your electric fuel pump. Or it could be the fuel pickup filter inside the fuel tank, Either one is a pain to fix. When you say you had fuel system cleaned, was it done by a shop with a machine that cleans the fuel rail and injectors. Or did U pour some fuel system cleaner in the tank or throttle body? Also, was the throttle body cleaned when U had the fuel system cleaned? If not this could be a problem also. email me a

A car when overheats means two things: (1) Timing may be off including electrical (2) bad head gasket. Chec for code reading with a OBDII reader to be more .

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work
