1985 Nissan 720 Pickup King Cab 4x4 2.4L double plugged from North America
Nothing can stop this truck
I've had to do all the maintenance that the previous owner neglected. New alternator and proper plugs and wires, and a distributor. The muffler was gone at the manifold when I got it.
I love this pickup; even though it runs rough, it just won't quit. I've only had it for a month now, but it can go anywhere, even though I don't have very good tires.
When revving the engine in neutral, it sounds incredibly smooth and doesn't backfire.
Only problem I have, is getting going from a stop, it bogs, but that only slows me down for a second, and then it runs great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree. I have only had my Nissan for about 3 weeks, and the truck overall has impressed me. When I got it, the carburetor on it was the stock carburetor, so I bought a rebuild kit and rebuilt it. Ever since then the truck has given me no problems whatsoever.
There's things that the old truck needs such as shocks, starter, tie rods, ball joints, and a new valve cover probably wouldn't hurt. But overall I must say the truck is great for whatever I need. It is a going son of a gun, and only a tank could stop it.

I just recently got myself an 85 Nissan pickup; do you guys happen to know of what may be causing it to have a slight hesitation on an uphill, and on cold nights it needs to warm up before it can idle properly?

Fuel air mix too lean. Bad fuel. Vacuum leaks. Coil voltage low.

Thank you very much, I took it into a mechanic who is having the carburetor rebuilt. Do you think this will solve the problems? It should be back with me in about a week or so.

However... You can visually inspect a vehicle for many things, like looking at the plugs or seeing if you dented a tailpipe, restricting its flow. Or check the air filter if it's filthy, dead fuel, or look at the color of the exhaust, use your ears and even sense of smell, is it hard to start or keep running; on and on before you spend a dime fixing things. Vehicles need a spark, air and fuel. If you are climbing a hill, more load is on the engine. How's the fuel filter before you rebuild the carb? There are more internal issues not mentioned that can be the cause as well. Visually inspect is the best for starters.
