I've recently came across a problem with my truck. Yesterday I was driving in my neighborhood and all of a sudden my trucks motor begins to choke itself when i accelerated from a stop. It died about 20 feet past the stop sign. All the lights on the cluster turned on and I stopped the truck and tried to start it again. First attempt it would run for a second then kill itself. The second time its started up but in a limp mode, seemed to misfire and was pumping exhaust/gas smell through my a/c vents. Its seems like since the dealership ripped the motor out an replaced the timing chain in it a few months ago its been giving me problems. Its done similiar things before with the brakes failing or my line blowing up, transmission failing. I dont know whats going ive tried looking at it, but without a computer to read it i cant do squat. If anyone knows any idea on whats goin with my truck plz help i just paid it off and all these problems have started to occur.

Any chance they got a harness bound up and shorting out on something?

Dang that sucks. Have you checked the fuel line and filter? Sounds to me that the fuel is not getting to the motor. Have another dealer look at the truck and see if you can cross determine what the F=== is going on. Your dealer A seems to have missed some steps in correcting the problem. I have a nissan dealer 5 miles a way and I will not go them. I would rather drive 45 miles to get the job done right. I hope you get this all worked out and check the LEMON LAW's in your state and take full advantage of your rights as a truck owner. Nissans are very reliable and many do not have problems as yours does
