    In this video I have a look at a 2001 Nissan Frontier with a 3.3 V-6 that came in wit the engine light on. It appears to be running rough and I do discover a P0302 …

    'Suck, squeeze, bang and blow. What in tarnation- this is the channel for South Main, ain't it. We are talking motors aren't we? How'd I get here? Where's the big O'- dang, I miss that guy and no video to watch.

    I use identifix over prodemand for firing orders and spark gaps. Identifix makes it a little easier. Type in finring order and scrole to the bottom it will pop right up quickly. Also identifix is integrated with my shop software R.O. writer.

    Man scope and Scan tool I need to learn how to use them better to save me so much time what would you charge to teach wiring has not been my specialty,need to learn, cause Right now I have a 2001 Honda odyssey re timing chain water pump replacement.Starts up sounds good goes from 1800 RPM and as it heats up it goes to 3000 thinking that air in the line and It can’t find it’s idle due to the Iac valve . Triple checked the timing it’s spot on. Let me know what you think I would appreciate it thank you


    Thanks for the trick of measuring amps at injector fuse. Would measuring voltage drop at same fuse give any indication?

    Nissans tend to have bad high resistance fuel injectors. They are easy to find in minutes just by checking the resistance of each one.

    Come-on Part Duo!


    Had a ‘92 Maxima. Started missing on one cylinder. Had a gut feeling it was an injector. Stripped the motor down to where I could get to all six. Started testing. One. Good. Two good. Three good. Four and five good. I’m like “Number six had better be bad!”

    It was. Pain in the ass to get to the injectors. Loved that car.


    Great Video Eric. Nice edited, well explained. Thanks.

    You should flag this in the description for the explanation of current and voltage through a solenoid/injector. It was very clear.
