You've done all the disassembly necessary to clean. Wipe parts with paper towel carefully. Don't bend the metal timing disk on the camshaft sensor assy. Get canned air or electronic parts cleaner and blow out excess oil. Be sure to remove oil from the slots in the timing disk and sensor assy.

We noticed an immediate improvement and it ran fine until I got the $3 oil seal for the distrib from the dealer a few days later. My son is still running the same distrib more than a year later with no further stalling and sputtering. Lots of hard pizza delivery miles.

If funds are low, this may get you back on the road, but you'll need to replace the o-ring oil seal on the back side of the distributor or you'll need to keep cleaning the sensor assy periodically.

Try spraying out the inside of the distributor (not the cap) again with the electric parts and contact cleaner. Also when was the last time you changed the NGK spark plugs and dist. cap and rotor?

cchanged plgs and everything a couple of weeks ago and everything ran fine until last friday. changed the fuel filter than the fuel pump to find out it was in the distributor. going to put a new o-ring in as soon as I can figure out how it comes out.

changed the o-ring and got it running but after about 45 mins it started to cut out again under about 2,000 rpm, and died when turning. any ideas out there?

Try to clean out the inside of the distributor by heavily spraying with electric parts cleaner. . Do it several times and then let it dry out. Also double check the timing and the Throttle Position Sensor. I would also check the EGR valve because it sounds a little like that could be hanging up. Many times the passages get carboned up and the valve doesn't move freely. See if that makes any difference.

Can you start it up cold and it gets to a certain point in warming up and then it dies?

If you cleaned the distributor out thoroughly with the spray contact cleaner, then the only thing left is to replace the distributor with a new one. The cam position sensor could just be failing which was the case with my 240SX and why I got an otherwise excellent car for a $1000. I recommend getting a Nissan factory part no. 22100-1E420RE retail $463.81 but check with Performance Nissan in Duarte, CA they sponsors on the board and they show it as a stocking item. phone 626-357-7683.
