I have a 1997 Nissan pick-up 2400 12-valve and it has a problem where when going down the road the fuel cuts off and jerks. What causes this?

I've flushed out the fuel system and replaced both the fuel pump and fuel filter

Do you
have the same problem?

Are you sure it is fuel? It could be spark.

Did you have the injectors serviced?

Sparks fine and injectors are serviced. On a windy day the truck will not move could it be an air problem?

Ok, once again, how do you know it is fuel related? Was it tested? Did you have the fuel pressure checked?

It sounds like we are guessing here. We need to start at basics.
