Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup
I am having a problem with my 1997 Nissan pickup, 4WD, 4 cylinder, standard transmission. It started about a year ago. It will just cut out or lose ignition after driving 5 or 10 miles, then after a cool down you can drive it for about the same amount of time, and so on and so forth.
I had changed all tune up parts, there was no change. I then brought it to a local Nissan dealer who diagnosed a bad camshaft position sensor and oxygen sensors. So I then changed the distributor (after market) and oxygen sensors and while I was at it I changed the crankshaft position sensor, but still no luck.
I then went back to the Nissan dealer and they told me the same code for the camshaft position sensor was coming up, so I had them put in am original parts distributor by their people and still no luck. Then I let Nissan diagnose it further and they told me the same code was coming up and their distributor was functioning properly. They suggested I change the whole wiring harness. I've since taken it from the Nissan dealer because I cant afford to have them install a new harness.
I let the truck sit for a while and then started driving is again in the winter months 07/08 and it was fine all winter and most of the spring. Now its doing the same thing again. I just had all the grounds cleaned, but still no luck. Do you have any suggestions??
We had the same problem, and i am a mechanic, so i just put in a new computer and now it works fine. Used ones are $150.00 . The truck was doing the exact same thing and i done everything you done to try and fix it. Also showed the same code. Try changing that computer which is under passenger side seat. Good luck!
