1995 Nissan pickup running rough at idle, especially with air conditioner on
Yes my 19951 Nissan runs very rough at idle especially when air conditioning
is on and sometimes even backfires and dies. I have replaced the O2 sensor,
new rotor, rotor cap, spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, and air cleaner.
Someone recommended checking for vacuum leak so I visually checked
found the one from the egr valve and the egr solenoid/sensor, it was basically
melted, I replaced it and the other vacuum hoses look ok.
Help any suggestions? Thanks
back fires is timing . Sounds like you didn't have the no one piston at DTC when you put in the new distributor if that what you meant by new rotor. If you meant new rotor button and distributor cap. Check the rotor button and cap are installed correctly.
Yea it was running rough before I replaced the rotor and distributor cap. Any other ideas? Thanks
the back fire makes me think check if the distributor is loose .It sounds like it has turned some from when it was once timed. The only other thing that relates to timing is cam sensor to ECM to Coils and plugs, Crank it up and unplug one coil at a time see if it gets worse. Sounds like it could be a failed coil that would cause a miss fire. No codes stored?
The backfire is rare and minor, but the missing when the air is on is more pronounced, once the truck gets going up to speed it stops missing Thanks
put in a fuel additive to clean the injectors
Yes I forgot to mention that I already added Lucas fuel treatment to my last tank of gas Any ideas? Thanks
check all the injector connection are secure and no moisture where the coils attach to the plugs
Thanks I’ll try that
also a clogged cat can cause this
How would I diagnose a clogged cat? Thanks
that's done with a pressure gauge in the o2 sensor hole
FICD...AAC....CHECK THEM BOTH. FICD works in conjunction with your AAC. (IAC) when you turn on the AC, the FICD activates and lets more air in to run AC and keep idle normal.
