My d21 hard body was sitting up for the winter months.

Customer Question
My d21 hard body...

My d21 hard body was sitting up for the winter months. During the winter months, I attempted to start the truck. The brand new battery; just 4 months old, had died. Put a new battery in the truck and it wouldn't start like it wasn't getting any gas to the throttle body. Poured gas directly in the throttle body, it started and ran until the gas ran out. New fuel pump, 2 new fuel filters and still nothing. Checked the fuel pump regulator, and there is gas going to the return port on that back to the tank. What in the world am I missing?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

Changed the fuel pump already

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

1986 SE D21 3.0

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes sir....trying to anyway....

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It ran up until September of last year. I bought the truck as a project. Only thing that happened, one day I was driving and when I got over 2200 rpm, the engine stuttered. Other than that and now, no other mechanical issues

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!
