  1. Wow! 185 bucks for distributor or about 200 for the icm huh how does that work??
  2. Thanks a whole lot will jump on it on my day off (tues) bright and early before it gets hot
  3. So looked for that plug and no luck I noticed that today when driving its started to just die and coil was hot and and wouldent start until it cooled down so im still stumped what it could be going on with it. Its just that its too dam hott to work in cars here in az weather 110+
  4. Ok so i been putting off this coil thing off for a while now so today i did some diggin in to it and it seems to be running off one coil again the intake one even tho im running power to the other coil by bridging them, there is power and evrything just no spark, swapped both coils and still no luck i un did the wiring harness. That goes to the coils and no fried wires at all or signs of , but truck runs and idles fine just a little sluggish in takeing off so now im a little lost and probably time to do some more diggin from distbuter to wires and fuses and connections yay sounds fun
  5. Omg i think im in love with that 320 where can i get one, cool truck real nice
  6. Dam thanks i found a pertty.clean pathfinder at junkyard was about to rip off some parts
  7. Do bumpers and marker lights and fender flars interchange
  8. So i took that 10 amp fuse out and it was blown So i put in all new fuses and there is still no power and all fuses have power to that coil so im stuck again could it be the ignition module the on that goes in distbuter that is fried ?? Or is there something else i should look for??
  9. Cool thanks i will check all the fuses i kind did that day but not all of them i think im just gonna replace all of them see what happens
  10. so I was working on my 720 4x4 over weekend getting it ready for emission testing and all of a sudden on of my coils decided not to work :confused: well more like not power to it I don't recall messing with any of that stuff it just started to idle rough but ran just sluggish and no power really so I decided to jump power over from the other coil and seem to run fine but I am sure that's not the correct fix I am wondering what went wrong or what should I look for?? oh and I still took it for testing and it passed :thumbup: :thumbup: so that's good its just that now that bothering me that I had to bridge the coils need help please thanks

    oil light??

    So I've notice that when I first start my truck in mornings my oil light turns on and stays on for a while I would say for a good 10 -15 sec then goes away, it would do it before but would come off immediately and believe to be normal checked oil and is good and haven't really done anything crazy just oil change couple weeks ago should I be worried of something not running well or could just be something simple any ideas?? Oh running rotella 15 40 wonder if that the issue ?
