Not Camaro problems but Nissan problems...

Help please guys?
I bought a nissan armada in OKC on the 16th of APR and on sunday I start to head home from OKC to my home and the Armada breaks down. Stalling at road speeds and jerking and jolting sounds like a few backfires, etc, etc. I think I have a clogged catylitic converter cuz there is no codes. No DTC's nuthin. So I drive it around a little and it still does it. I have all the local mechs flabbered. They have no idea what is wrong. I tell them I think its a fuel pump and one of the cat convertors are clogged.
They keep telling me they cant fix it because theres no codes popping. Well d mechs noadays have to have codes to fix a vehicle?

Can someone give me some advice on here please?
THanks again guys,
Harley

Re: not Camaro problems but Nissan problems...

Just a swag here. (Silly wild *** guess). Sounds like it is losing electrical power. Could there be a ground loose? Is the power cutting off in the vehicle. Could be a fuel pump problem. Gets hot cuts off. How many miles are on it? Does it idle smooth? Excessive fuel consumption? Make sure the engine is ok, fuel in the oil, water, etc.. Sounds like to me an ignition prob, but it would kick a code... IDK, when you fix it, let us know...

swag here too--i would guess ign also--i dont what type ign system is on nissan-i dont think its converter-a way of testing that is put a vacuam gauge on it-hit wide open throttle -vacuam will drop to zero and start coming up and if it drops to zero and does not start coming up -its a exhaust restriction--also taking off throttle body off and cleaning with carb cleaner -installing new gasket may fix ur problem just a swag

Sound to me like the air flow meter is faulty, they don't always throw codes, or the intake air boot is split allowing unmetered air to enter the intake manifold downstream of the air flow meter. Also have the fuel pressure tested. I've also seen faulty camshaft and crankshaft sensors cause stalling with out setting any codes.

Wow! just because there are no codes doesn't mean it can't be fixed. It makes it more difficult yes, but if they are worth 2 cents they should be able to look at data streams and do some simple tests to narrow down the issues, it just takes know how. Bring it to me i like a challenge! lol I would love to help on this one but it sounds like something you would have to get into to really get to the root of it. Would probably just be swingin for the fences on the internet but here goes. Fuel pressure is always a good start. Would say also check bat. and charging system. This would be a good time to check for AC ripple in the alternator but im guessing u dont have access to scope. Umm lets see O2 sensor readings as well as fuel trims, map and maf sensor reading, relative compression test( again would have to have access to scope and ac clamp). tps readings, temp sensor readings. Your plugged cat concern should show up in the combination of the maf, and upstream and down streeam O2 sensors, you could also do an exhaust back pressure test. Smoke test to check for vacuum leaks, which would be indicated in O2 readings and fuel trims. Thats what i can think of off the top of my head. The answer is there u might just have to find a good tech that knows where to look.

NEVER argue with a stupid person. They bring you down to their level, and then beat you with experience.
