Question about 1992 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Nissan pickup with a 2.4 engine. When it starts, it usually idles very high and then sometimes it idles extremely rough. The latter sometimes happens when I hit a bump or start down my steep and rough driveway. Occasionally it runs like a new truck. It always runs good on the road but when I let off the throttle as if to turn or stop, it usually bucks and jerks until I take it out of gear. I've tried 93 octane, fuel injector cleaner, water remover, replaced the fuel filter and re-attached a very small vacuum hose that was disconnected. I've read about all the sensors and don't know where to begin. Some of the sensors cost $100.00 plus and I can't afford to do a lot of experimenting. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

1992 rough idle


Could be anything. Vacuum, valves, rings, tune up. Check vacuum lines. Then check compression before you do a tune up. If you have bad compression in a cylinder, tuneups don't help. In that case, either drive it till it dies or replace/rebuild the engine.

I have a 1984 nissan 720 pickup truck that i noticed idles high when stopped, then the idle goes low then high and back and forth. What is causing it?


Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

97 nissan king cab running poor rough idle it surges/stumbles about every 15 to 20 second


I would start with the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. The IAC valve usually, USUALLY, trips the Check Engine Light, but, sometimes may not.

Aside from that, it could be other issues: spark plugs, ignition wires, distributor components/assembly, etc.

BTW, is the Check Engine Light on?

Engine is running rough at idle; making slight "popping" sound; can see rpm's on the tach jump slightly


have you checked the EGR (exhaist gas recirculation) valve? sometimes carbon will chip off and make them stick partially open causing extremely rough idle or wont idle at all without help from throttle

Heaters randomly blow cold, idle jump


Make sure your anti-freeze is full in the radiator.. If it is low, the heater is the first to go, but you wont see signs of overheating.. This I believe is also contributing to your idle fluctuation.
