This truck just died on the freeway. Diagnosed as a timing chain problem. If the timing chain is bad does that mean the valves are also damaged? My husband read somewhere the Nissan trucks had trouble with piston clearance..the valves may be damaged. I'm just trying to help my college kids save some money and headache. Thanks in advance.
Strobe lights while the truck is running and idiling. As you give it gas the flickering stops and we have also took the positive side off the battery and the truck remains running....
I hot wired compressor to take couple cans freon but as soon as I take hot wire off, the compressor kicks off therefore it will not take any more freon. Someone said there is a switch behind the glove box that makes compressor stay kicked on to take more freon?
I have cleaned the carb put new fuel filter but still won't idle need to know what to check or what to do. Thanks.
Won't go in reverse at all.
When I TURN ON my Air conditioner, #1, #2 nor #3 doesn't flow air, only #4; what's happening?
this happened only after i changed the distributor. it begins cranking normally then in the middle it will just stop cranking like it has shorted out. if i hold the key there for a second it will continue to start and run fine. i have changed the plugs, wire, starter, ignition switch, stater relay, and honestly at this point i dont know what to do next. it seems to do it on moist, cold or rainy days but not always. i am totally at a loss as what to do next
Replaced head gaskets and timing belt,water pump ,distributor ,plugs and wires
Stopped blowing air so I unplugged the blower motor resistor to go and replace. When I started truck to go get the part the blower worked. Only blows periodically for the last month or so. Has only blown on HIGH for years.
Occasionally, I would turn the key and nothing would happen. I could wiggle the battery cable wires and then it would usually start. Yesterday, something different happened. When I turn the key, the dashboard lights come on for a second and there is a popping sound and the lights go off. Turn the key again and nothing. Disconnect the battery cables and put them back on and get a repeat of lights on for a second and a popping noise. Any suggestions on where I can start? My truck is stranded in someone's driveway.

it does eventually start just takes a few times or starts first try. Sometimes sounds like something is in way of something turning and makes a awful sound almost sounds like when vehicle is running and you try to start it .
