Hey everyone, having some problems with my 92 Nissan NX2000. i just finished changing the clutch on the car now its acting horrible.
When i start the car, it will run decent for like 2 or 3 seconds then the idle drops down till it almost dies, catches itself, idle goes up to about 500 were it will pulse around for a few seconds
until it dies. If i rev it it will stay running, kept it running for about 2 mins. but as soon as i let off it will pulse at 500 until it dies
After i changed the clutch it started up fine, it ran great for about 20 seconds before it just died. when i started it after is when the problem arose.
I took a video of the car running, which can be seen here. https://youtu.be/68h3mVZRLfU (It has never caught itself like that before and jumped up to 1000 rpms before. It normally will die at that point)
Sorry the video is really quiet, not sure what happened there. if need be i can get a video of the engine bay so its louder, was mainly focused on the RPMS
Here’s a few things i tried:
Changed spark plug wires, made sure they were all seated good,
MAF wires were rubbed a bit so i cut the MAF pigtail off one of my other sentras and soldered it on,
Changed to a good battery,
Changed fuel filter,
Added more gas (in cause gauge is broken),
Made sure all connectors are plugged in,
Checked around for vacuum leaks, found that one of the large hoses coming off the intake going to the engine had separated so i plugged them back in and nothing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I’m stuck on this and need a car running ASAP after my wife wrote the other one off a few weeks ago.
