Hi there,

Can you remove the spark plugs, and crank the engine to see if excess fuel comes out one cylinder?

Fuel pressure of 9psi points to an injector stuck open.

How do you do that 2008 nissan sentra manifold goes over plugs which is attached to accelorator i think
Nissan Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

You have just changed the spark plugs, haven't you?

Just remove them, leave them out, leave coils disconnected, 2nd person crank engine, and view what comes out of which cylinder.

Have seen many injectors stick open, and partly flood engine, misfire while running, and also hydraulic engine, bend rods etc.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
