Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

Starving for fuel

Completed service on 3.2 diesel, running okay, after about 100km, started to miss on over and full throttle, took filter off and replaced with new one, test run okay, about 10 km later started to surge and not able to get full throttle. Is okay on idle and just above idle but any revs above that it appears that it is starving for fuel.

    I have a 97 hardbody, 2.4L, manual tranny, 4x4 and I have replaced fuel filter, plugs,wires,rotorcap and rotor button, air temp sensor(which was shwing a code for when the engine lite came on, which came back on after about 24hrs) and I also replaced a bad vacuum line that went into the throttle body but I still have a miss from 2000 rpm and up and it's not all of the time but most of the time. I am just about ready to take it to the Nissan dealer but really would rather save the money and do it myself. Could someone please help me out? I would greatly appreciate it.

No one has an idea about the 1995 mustang

Half throttle or less?Then the demands for full throttle are missing,How is the air filter?Check the air filter it may be plugged.And at more open throttle you need more fuel. You may want to service the fuel filter,At full open throttle the vehicle needs to breath and it also needs to exhale.These two component are just the start for a function inspection If these two serviceable componenet are met,and you still have this problem we can move from this and remedy the situation form a plugged exhaust to a TPS having a bad swipe.Also try a airflow sensor cleaning with the MAF (Mass air flow)

Sputters and dies

Do you have the shop manual? You need verify the workings of each part and system one at a time. Follow the working line. You stated you checked the fuel pressure. Where was it checked? At which location? Was it checked under throttle? Does the fuel regulator check out? Is the fuel good (any water)? These problems can sometimes be a bear to find. It takes time and patience. Do one thing at a time and verify that it works properly before moving on to the next part/attack plan. Check all ground conections from the block/engine to the frame/body. Once you verify that the fuel delivery is good, start looking at emission related parts and fuel management parts (TPS, MAF, Cold start injector, EGR, etc.)

Excessive fuel consumprion - 2.3 L 4 cyl engine

Not for the home mechanic, but you could try a fuel system service. Basically they add chemicals to your fuel tank via a machine, and these chemicals clean the fuel system... fuel injectors, lines, filter, basically everything... that seemed to help my fuel mileage and also throttle response.

F350 no start

I have a feeling you got a wholed of unleaded fuel or bad fuel
I drive a diesel box truck the station I always took it to the fuelman put unleaded in the diesal tanks and the truck just died it had to have the gas tank completed drained and cleaned out but also ask yourself how many miles are on it and when was last tune up and if you live in a cold climate I recommend a heater block plug
