Depending on your views and preferences, I wouldn't move to Portland. I wouldn't live in Portland for anything. I hate the city. It's dirty, crowded, large homeless population and the mayor and govorner encourage rioting and violence while taxing you past breaking and criminalizing legal hobbies. I'm originally from a town of 1500. I like small towns. Before that I lived in the Bay Area and I hate everything about the Bay Area. Glad my parents decided to move before I moved out of the house. I now live in a town of around 25k. Still too big!

Come back to ask questions, and you can reference the page numbers that you don't understand.
Hey man!

So upon struggling to do the vaccuum lines with the current information I have. I decided to go through that online manual you posted. Just wanting to make sure I havent wasted my time, but i believe efec 16 and 17 are for the vaccuum lines connections right? it's the only area i've seen to mention and illustrate the vac lines.

The 1989 version? I suppose those are vacuum lines. It calls it the AIR FLOW DESCRIPTION though.

yeah I just wanted to make sure. im trying everything I've seen to get this thing to stay started. getting really bummed out over some vac lines preventing the whole thing from getting smogged already. hoping for better results soon.

Any chance you can give a run down again of what you've done and it's results? I thought no it's kinda being lost in several pages.



You do have fuel pressure while it's running, right?

So here's a lil rundown.

It started, ran, and drove correctly when I got it.

Didnt have a working EGR valve, which i need for CA smog.

replaced EGR valve.

at the same time I decided to replace the vaccuum lines.

upon replacing the vaccuum lines and trying to start, it wont stay running. 30 seconds max if even that long. (this is mine https://vimeo.com/470739342 )

then i've been trying to just find the right vac lines, testing different diagrams and what not. i cleaned a pcv valve and put it back on, but didnt help.

it's just a vaccuum crisis im sure. because it worked before i messed with those, and i doubt replacing the egr would have any drastic effect on it not being able to stay running and sit idle

also, look here http://www.infamousnissan.com/forum/...ad.php?t=44814

I kinda have it all in one thread.

That was a steal for that Nissan service manual. Nice score. I have the one for the 87 model that covers the truck and pathfinder models.

Have you looked inside your AIV unit? It's the round thing with vacuum hoses on the far right near your fender. Right as in when you face the engine. Those things fill up with water and rust. You can get a replacement.

When I found it, I started to post the link here, but it was ending in 5 hours. I couldn't just let it not sell.
