Asked by Feb 06, 2015 at 11:36 PM about the 1990 Nissan Pickup 2 Dr STD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Tps checks fine as does the maf sensor
besides the fact that it has a half volt drop
when running on the ground. Check engine
light is not on but who knows if it works. I
was thinking control module or coil maybe.  
What do you guys think? It has a new fuel
pump and filter that I put in and yes I just
bought the truck.

Sounds like a distributor cap problem, pull it and check for cracks also it may be time for a tune up

Changed the cap and rotor. Still does it not as offter though so I guess the coil is next
