Those idle problems are more or less ongoing with the pre-1990 engines. I came to the idea that Nissan engineers were trying to meet excessive USA emissions standards and they had to try 'this or that' to get past the requirements. Late 80's tech stuff...

And...these same engineers never figured in their wildest dreams that people would still be driving these rigs with the original engines more than thirty years down the road. Any more than some Ford engineer designing a 1925 Model T would believe people would be driving that T 1955.

I swear if some aftermarket company started manufacturing BRAND NEW throttle body setups, complete with all the surrounding peripherals on them...and offering them for sale...they would make a killing.

2009 Xterra, 4.0 liter, automatic, 4WD. Need a technical manual? Drop me a message. Chilton's for amateurs.
