Titan Cranks but wont start!!!
Alright so I have been bit by the Titan none start bug.
2005 Nissan titan Crew cab has run great for all 4 years that I've owned it, up until about a month ago.
I normally drive no more than 30 mins one way with this truck but do drive it daily. About a month ago I made a longer than usual trip in it and noticed upon stopping at a light that the truck was idling very rough and the RPM were low. Once moving it ran great just noticed it when stop in Drive. I had also ran the tank down to about a 1/16th of a tank so I thought maybe I picked up some garbage in the tank. I sea foamed the tank and the brake boaster and did the ECU, Throttle resets, and cleaned the MAF and Throttle body. It didn't change anything and continued to idle rough and I also started to notice a strong exhaust smell and very black tail pipe that's usually completely clean. I had a BD programmer that I only use for the WOT, and decided to bump the RPM's up 150 and that seemed to make the truck run good again minus the strong exhaust smell and worse than usual MPG's. Truck ran fine like that for about 2 weeks and one day upon leaving the house it cranked and didn't start, tried a second time and it started. I didn't think much of it and left the house. I stopped of at the gym, came out and again it wouldn't start. It cranked but wouldn't start. I sat there trying to start it for 20 mins and then bam it started up and ran great. continued to drive it for the rest of the week with no problems and then one day a little over a week ago I left for work and it wouldn't start at all. I searched the around, swapped the ecm relays, nothing. Bought a new ecm relay, nothing. Battery is fine. Ordered a Crankshaft sensor, fuel pump, and IPDM board. Crankshaft sensor came in Friday so I changed that out first. Truck started right up after replacing that and was running perfect. Turned it on and off 3-4 times and no problems. Thought I had it figured out, went down the street to get some food. Came out truck started sputtered and stalled and will not start. It cranks great but will not start. It is really frustrating. Any ideas? IPDM board should be here this week along with the fuel pump. Dealership says my vin isn't under the recall and said only the relay goes bad not the whole board, but I thought i read the whole board can go.
