does the truck idle smooth?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Normally the 2k rpms indicates a bad MAF sensor. If you start the truck with it unplugged, does it run better, the same? ( not driving it of course.. see if it does the same 2k rpms thing..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Starts... Runs worse... Cuts out at 1200...
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

If you put all the original coils back in, see if it returns to the normal operation before.. The reason I am asking you to do that is just in case the coils you got are after market and that they could be causing the issue.

Let me know

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Coils are oem ... No aftermarket parts... Should I let it idle??? I'm afraid of cat damage
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

You brought the coils from the dealer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

I think there may be catt damage... That is the only thing I can think off with out using a scanner. At this point you are going to want to use a scanner to monitor the air and fuel mixture and monitor 02 sensor readings to try to verify that..

I was a Nissan arc mgr for 15 yrs.just no contacts any more
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

I hear ya.. I just though of one more trick I may have up my sleeve to see if there is a change.

Do you know about the Ecm relay in the IPDM? Do you recall that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Switched it with the fog relay
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Yea.. Give that a try and let me know what happens...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I already did
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Then fuel pressure and a scanner is where we are at I am afraid.. Was hoping it was a simply swap of the relays...
