I have a 1988 Nissan P/U XE 4WD with a z24i engine. Under accerlation or under no load at all it misses, hesatates, or bucks whatever you want to call it at 2750 RPMs everytime. I have a code 51 on my ECU but the manual says it is for v6 engine only. I have been told that it may be the ignitors or ignition control modules for the coils but is there a way to check them before paying out a $100 dollars each? I have fire on both coils it is just seams like there is a rev limiter kicking in at 2750 RPMs. Please help if anyone knows what the problem maybe.

disconnect the bat for 5 minutes or so.

then start truck. let warm up.

then read codes again

to check coils pull the wires off one at a time to see if they are getting spark..

both sides will spark at idle..

51 is injector circuit.

the wires leading to the inj. have a service loop of sort..

so pull the tape off to the middle of the loop.

that is where the 2 tbi wires merge into 1 wire that goes to the ecm..
it has a copper or brass crimp.

that crimp gets corroded and can lose its contact .. check it..


also check the fusible links for looseness and corrosion..

Mine did that, when the ground on the computer(along with other grounds on the truck). Once I grounded the computer to the floor, it was fine. Go Figure??
Good Luck
