Thank you, smj999smj.
I read about the bad ground circuits, so I was glad it had already been taken care of on mine. Apparently, Nissan used to sell an harness adapter that was plug-n-play, but it is no longer available.
Is there a reason why cleaning the MAFS would cause such a big reaction? Did it trigger something else to go off/bad? This makes me leery of touching anything else and rendering the truck unmovable, but I'll try. I have to get this running before the snow season.
I will try all of the things you suggested. I have to research where the components are and how to perform the tests. (Can you tell I haven't done any work on my engines besides changing oil and topping off the fluids?
) I purchased new shocks for it because the truck sags and still has the original OEM shocks.
I need to get it running right first though.
I'll have to take it to a shop to have the fuel pressure tested. Looks like I can't do it myself as it's not in any of my manuals. I guess it might not be necessary if it's running though, right?
Can you tell me where the rubber intake duct is please? I cannot find anything on that in my manuals.
I guess I should also check the ECC canister filter, since I know it has not been checked in the few years I've owned it. I also got a new PCV valve that I need to install as soon as I can figure out where it is.
Thanks again. I'll update when I make progress.
