Try this: Get in your truck, turn the key to ON position (do not start the engine!) and within 3 seconds push the accelerator pedal to the floor and let it back. Turn the key off, than start it and see if it's working good now.

Does the engine reach operating temperature? What's the temp gauge showing after you drove it for a while? It may be just a thermostat and the CEL relates to the long open loop mode.

Make sure the electrical connector is seated in the throttle correctly. Reset the DTC and do a throttle re-learn.

It could be a problem with ignition coils or engine wiring harness. Search the net for "Nissan technical service bulletin 01-059" it explains a bit deeper.
Problem Reported: Internal Transfer Case Problem on the 4WD models
February 27, 2011, 05:22 PM
<p>An abnormal noise may develop from the transfer case. At this time parts are not available to repair internal damage to this type of transfer case, replacement is the only option. It is not uncommon for irregular tire wear to cause a similar noise. Diagnoses should be performed to confirm the actual cause of the driveline noise. Tire noise can be reduced by rotating the tires at least every 5000 miles.</p>

Car Review: 2005 Toyota 4Runner
September 14, 2010, 08:26 PM
I bought tis car new and ever since she served the family well. I had to wait for it an extra 3 weeks, because I wanted one without the sunroof and leather/electrical seat. I'm a tech, so I take care of all the maintenance or repair and the car gets all the best - OE or better parts. Beside the reg. services I replaced the following: -all tires @ 40K -front brakes @ 50K -A/C evaporator @ 55K (that's the reason for 3 stars on the A/C system) The only thing I miss is an MP3 capable CD player and a switch for the traction control. There are some off-road situations when it would be better off. Overall - it's a great car, I'd buy one again.
