1991 Nissan Pickup (D21) Q&A
1991 Nissan Pickup (D21) Question: Truck vibrates and groans in 4th and 5th at 2700 rpms and above.
I just recently replaced my distributor cap and rotor, plugs and wires. Two days ago I noticed that as I drove down the highway that it groaned at 2700 rpms and above. When I got home I checked my plug wires and cap and discovered one of the screws on the cap had loosened and had a gap about 3/16 between cap and distributor. It seemed to take care of it, however I notice that it still groaned a little. I also notice by the feel, sound and sight of the vibration (in the mirror) of the motor that the vibration seems to be cyclical. I have 232000 miles on it so I don't if it is the timing or .... ???. I have no noticeable loss of power whatsoever. Or loss of gas mileage. The engine is a 1991 4 cyl. 2.4L KA-24 4x4 5 speed stick. And am I to understand the 6 cyl have timing belts and the 4 cyl have chains? So might it be timing, fowled plug, bad connection,...??? - dn91nissan
