Missfiring after a auto to manual conversion


Recommended Posts

So every since the conversion if have a miss-fire. It seems to happen in the rev range of 1100-2500.

The car was sitting for a few months during the conversion.

1. Changed the plugs

2. Coil packs are brand new

3. Unplugged coils one by one, they all display similar behaviour  

4. Sprayed all over vacuum hoses etc with brake cleaner, can't hear anything change

5. Vacuum tested when running, looks normal.

6. Unplugged the O2 sensor, no change. ecutalk is seeing voltage. 

7. Swapped CAS with another good one

8. Resistance check the coil loom

9. The battery was disconnected for weeks during the conversion, so the ECU has been reset.

I have a consult (ecutalk), but I don't really know what to look for, other than error codes, which there are none.

I am running out of ideas.

PS It is a N/A

Usually with all the skylines I’ve owned issues at 2500rpm always seemed to be related to the air flow meter. Usually when the AFM is dead it limits your revs to 2500. Your one might be dirty as f**k inside it, or you may be even using the wrong one. So clean it with contact cleaner or afm cleaner. Just make sure one side of the afm has the mesh on it though, because removing that also causes problems. Also check the afm wiring, it might be loose or come off.

I would also clean the inside of the boost solenoid.

Thanks. I will clean it and check the wiring. But I have not changed it during the conversion. I think it is OG. I wish I had a boost solenoid. NA.

It does rev right out. It is just missing a bit and feels like a vibration in the lower revs.

Cleaned the AFM and throttle body.

Still no change.

I am starting to wonder if the flywheel or pressure plate is out of balance and what I am feeling is a vibration.  It does increase with revs and there is a small vibration on the clutch pedal in the high revs.

    • Something about these RBs just makes for huge headaches when it comes to dropping bolts. My very first interaction with the car was changing the plugs out to see if it would cure a misfire. I immediately dropped one of the coilpack cover bolts down the intake side of the engine. I called it a total loss and ordered a set of replacement bolts just to have, but I found the original bolt months later jammed in one of the ITBs, right in a little gap between the intake runners and a reinforcing bridge in the part.
    • Ended up getting a getrag for a resonable price in the end but considering what they are selling for now I am probably going to put it on the market now. How's everyone's PPG sequential's going still?
    • For a while I'd be living with a mysterious oil leak from vaguely behind the timing covers. After a drive there would be a small puddle under the car. If I ran the valley cover oil would collect under in the coilpacks especially around #1 and #2. If I ran no valley cover there would be a fine mist over most of the engine bay. Everything pointed to bad front main or cam seals as it was impossible to initially see the source as the timing belt would pull everything around. I tried several times in a day replacing the seals thinking that the issue was one of the front main or cam seals. I went as far as using genuine nissan goo around the corners of the cam seals etc. But still the issue remained. This was how it was for longer than I care to admit but with a large sump capacity and limited use it wasn't a big issue. Finally I found the issue, The VCT gear thing itself was leaking and after speaking to a few people who are highly knowledgeable in RBs the consensus was "huh thats a new one."   Anyway incase this is your issue too i post the following run through: remove the upper timing cover and replace the CAS using the small spacers from in the upper timing cover. Oil behind the VCT timing gear on the timing backing plate. But not behind the backing black on the head around the seals.   Oil inside the VCT gear   VCT oil gear pressed in seal. Apparently there is an o-ring behind the seal. it was able to rotate independent of the rest of it   a test i did to point me in this direction was holding some paper against the backing plate and shining a bright light on the paper to watch the oil spray pattern     More info in the video showing the tests and the rotating of a bad vs good gear. Also voice reveal lol   right after I confirmed the issue was fixed i dropped one of the little CAS spacers down into guts of it. Thankfully I had an inspection camera and a magnet so did not need to remove the timing belt for what would have been the 20th time!
    • Damn they're tasty!!  I love the satin kind of finish it comes up as.  
    • Did you do the powder coating? They look great.
