O.K so long story short.
Havent changed the iridium plugs or wires for my 2004 frontier truck for 130,000 miles. I believe I hit the point of death with the plugs and wires.
Engine shut down to a few issues.
Its a Nissan, never done mechanical or electrical tune up since the iridium plugs @ 30,000miles. Just changed brakes, and starter. Its a work truck so its about making money, not dumping money into it.
Long story short, cam sensor went off on the San mateo Bridge, shut down the engine completly.
Trouble shooted all aspects of the cam timing.
replaced timing belt that was original, 20 rubber teeth were missing.
replaced distributor/ignition/ cam sensor.
Engine still wont start, starter was replaced 10,000 miles ago.
There is spark.....
So now I am assuming its got to be the plugs and wires I have just ran beyond the mechanical warranty on plugs and wires. Only PITA is changing out that plug closest to the fire wall. Took me 3 hours to get the old one out, and new one in.
Any suggestions on changing out that plug closest to the firewall? Is it faster to remove the intake manifold to get to that plug easier?
Suggestions is much appreciated. VG33e is a PITA opf an engine to work on.
