Engine Performance problem
2003 Other Nissan Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 40000 miles
Hi, I was hoping you could help me, I have a nissan micra (new shape) 2003 1.0ltr engine and I am getting about 20 MPG from it. The engine management light has come on so I have had the diagnostics on it and the fault codes says the engine is running lean. Somewhat surprising considering I am only getting 20 to the gallon. There is no problem starting the car and it is running reasonably well considering the fuel consumption. Plugs are coking up and there is a very strong smell of petrol. From people I have spoken to suggestions are it could possibly be the fuel pressure valve faulty or the exhaust catalyst sensors. I am told there are 2 sensors, 1 in the catalyst and the other in the block and that of the 2 it is more likely to be the 1 in the block.
