Question about Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

When I stop the my 1992 Nissan Patrol, fuel leaks from under the engine on the right hand side just away from the front wheel. One morning when leaving for work, as I pulled away the engine had a power lapse as if it had a flat spot. As I accelerated away it came good. It did this a few times and this is when I noticed the leak. It starts OK and has plenty of power. It just leaks Diesel. Any Idea what is happening.

Fix the diesel leak and i bet your engine performance would return. Maybe you are drawing in air, maybe you are pumping diesel out, rather than in ...

You have to not leak any fluids, it is just not good. Fuel and oil that leak deteriorate other products that normally are not exposed, hoses go soft, etc. Fix your leak and test again.

How do i fix the vibrating noise/feeling especially on the left hand side of the nissan bluebird sylphy?

If the noise gets worse making a right turn, then goes away or close on a left turn. It is a wheel bearing. If it an engine mount. Put a jack under it and lift the engine slightly. If the vibration goes away. I suggest you replace all the other mounts.

I have a gq nissan patrol and only the front brakes are working

you will need to see if a) there is enough fluid in the system, b) that the fluid is getting to the rear, and c) there is not a mechanical issue at the rear itself.

A) open and see if the reservoir is full to the line on the side
B) check that the fluid is getting back there by cracking the lines open, starting from the back and working your way forward. (also look for cracked or leaking soft hoses while you are at it) <sometimes a very hard stop or leak can make the proportioning valve stick shut ( a safety feature to ensure that you still have SOME brakes)>
C) make sure that the rear brake assembly is still OK (good shoes, wheel cylinder(s) are working, drums not too eaten up, hardware not broken/ stuck/ missing)

I am trying to locate the fuel filter on a 1992 4 wheel drive extended cab Pick up

It should be in the engine bay, on the right hand side, it should be a metal one, if its not replace it with the right one.( it should also be metal, to allow for flow pressure) If its not there, try near your fuel tank, once again this one should be metal.

Fuel Leak

I wouldn't drive or start it with a fuel leak, it needs to be up on a lift to see it all clear, before any proper diagnosis.
