misfire, ses flashing at high speeds, no power

2361 7
I have a 2004 nissan titan with 107,000 miles on it. The truck starts good and runs fine until I try to accelerate quickly (like when passing a car or from a stop) Then It misfires and "pops" It still struggles through this and when it levels off to cruising speed it runs fine again. Also the SES light flashes when I reach 65-70 MPH. I changed the plugs and it runs better but the problems did not go away.

One, or more, of your ignition coils could be failing. This sounds exactly like what happened to my old '07 and that was the problem.

I changed the coils and idle improved for a while and was driveable at low speeds/rpms -- if i hit the throttle the engine essentially stalls -- i'[m strting to think fuel pump or bad fuel

Is there a way to drain fuel tank without removing it ??

Is there a way to check fuel pressure without buying that test rig that's talked about in some posts?


Is there a simple fuel pump test a rookie with limited skills and tools can do ?

THanks for help --

Any luck with this?
Finally got to real problem -- FUEL PUMP --the fuel pump finally died !! It died a slow lurching death and we found key points with a Matco fuel pressure guage and adapters. The pump would maintenance pressure until it was warm and under load and the pressure would drop to 0 and finally totally just died !

The guage and adapters are expensive and a PITA to rig bur once in line no further a mystery. Good pump cost $325 plus 2 hours labor

All it took was a tech that uses better diagnostic tools and skills than a Neurosurgeon

Thanks to folks who offered thoughts and clues but real solution was result of methodical approach and excellent tools
