Customer Question
I am having trouble...

I am having trouble with my Nissan frontier, the oil pressure gauge has been replaced twice and still isn't working correct. Plus last weekend I was coming home and on a hill the truck lost power I floored it, it made a thud noise and then I could only get it to go at 20 mph and hobbled it home.

I was told that the truck has a safety feature that will shut it down to keep from burning up the engine, if so would that be why it is only firing on 3 cylinders.

OK, can you please scan the vehicle's computer using an OBD2 scanner.

The trouble code retrieved will give me an idea what is wrong with the car. It could be a misfire code. The scanner cost about $20- 60.
