Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX as you have no problems building RPM's in neutral then we can usually rule out any airflow sensor issues,

 

Your more than liekly looking at a fueling issue, whether related to the pump or more coomonly the suction valve on the side of the pump.

 

You may want just make sure your you don't have a clogged catalyst also. Although fairly uncommon on these trucks, it can be known for similar symptoms.

Do you have any recommended mechanic near Corby, NN18 8PW
Expert:  Jake replied 3 years ago.

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with your area.

 

While you don't neccessarily need a Nissan dealer for a reapir like this, do get someone that uses up to date diagnostic equipment so if they need to calibrate the

SCV or something they can do so fairly easy.

 

Sorry i am not familiar with your area though, or I would have been happy to help.
