  1. Banned for not letting me know that there _was_ in fact, a "Photobucket".... we keep ours in a suitcase!
  2. Banned for continuing to deny the awesomnessly awesomeness that is Photobucket!
  3. @acfreak I'm guessing that yours is a manual also? I have an auto and it doesn't like to go faster than 65mph. The 3 point _slow_ only has 158 hp from new so going up hill in a 3900lb truck isn't going to be that zippy! I would suggest cap-wires-rotor and plugs because that will make a difference, but fuel filter and air filter most likely need to be changed
  4. I will give you 1000 Kanuckistan dollars for it!! Nice score!!
  5. Well, I bought mine as a project vehicle back in 2013 and had not sat in one since my dad rolled ours back in the early 90's one snowy night on the way back from work. I bought mine because I wanted a cool vehicle, but I was (still am) poor so in my case BOTH!
  6. When you haven't driven it in a while, hop in and recall that there is a crap-ton of space in the back!
  7. Banned for being overly concerned about what other people say.... AND hating on Photobucket!
  8. All y'all are banned for not keeping me in the loop, damnit! Sent from my SM-G390W using Tapatalk
  9. Hey look at that... I just tipped over the 1000 posts benchmark! YAY!!!

  10. I have to go with Manik on that one.... I was thinking a relay at first but the truck would have started back up immediately if it was.... then only other things that are left really are the main ground strap or the fusible links. Main ground strap would have everything off no lights at all) but might be an easy diagnose: pull on the strap, if the other end comes off, there is your problem! The fusible links are easy to overlook as long as they keep passing current through them! Look for a mushy... uhh try.... "feel" for a mushy wire cover (probably the black one) on the fusible links. That will be your problem link ( if it has gotten overheated from running a lot of current for a while); replacements are available but you'll need to figure out which one it is and its amperage (which should be in the wiring diagrams of the Service Manual). Good luck!
  11. Misfire code and system lean code, both point to a fuel supply problem so start there. I would change the fuel filter for starters, worst case is that it delivers the same amount of fuel! The misfire could be anything from electrical to mechanical to electronic but the usual process of elimination of possibles is more important now.
  12. The Gospel has been spoken! If Mr. Reverse says then it be!! A 2" lift should make it easier to drill out all the exhaust studs and install the M10 studs from the Z31 as well!
  13. Depending on where you are , I have a fully operational VG30 installed in my old truck and running... swing by Montreal, QC and we can pull it out some weekend.... gift/ donation / donor to keep another WD21 running.
  14. The Throttle Position sensor is possible but I suspect that the intake just needs a good cleaning for starters (watch the coolant lines going to the bottom of the throttle body and the 1 vacuum line on the bottom of the boot from the MAF). After that I would be at the aux. air idle thingy just in front of the firewall and next to the brake booster.... the tall thing with the electrical plug on the top of it.... that probably needs a good cleaning as well since its usually gunked up with PCV leftovers... As far as the MAF, cleaning _will_ help but adding an additional ground wire will also help. The TP adjustment is kind of finiky but requires a multimeter and someone who has the info for what values are needed for closed and full throttle.... @adamzan or @Mr.Reverse possibly. I don't recall those off of the top of my head. (You might want to do a search for TP sensor setting in here or google). The engine coolant temp is likely a poor ground on the back of the cluster or a thermostat that's stuck open. IF you go with the cluster make sure you have a 2" #2 Phillips screwdriver for the one screw at the top of the cluster and a 6" #2 for the rest of them. You'll then need a #1 or a #1 JIS to snug the screws on the back of the cluster down. That's about all I can help you with!
  15. Ahhh.... I'd forgotten how much fun it was to just have the kids on my lap and driving around the lawn in the Pathfinder.
