Recommended Posts

So my trooper has been sitting basically since December I always run high test gas and its run here and there at idle from time to time last time it ran seemed ok today while idling it seemed little choppy and giving it gas seemed to be breaking up a little kinda like a misfire I have about 1400 miles on it I plan on dumping the gas and will inspect the plugs I have ngk iridium plugs in it been there since 1200 miles know also have a fuel programmer on stage 1 factory never have changed it thoughts anyone????

very rare that we need to change plugs in them...not to say never...I would put fresh fuel,then check your fuel pressure ,if that doesnt help,disconnect the ground (or power) to your fuel controller to put back to stock...thats where I would start...Hardy

So I put 94 octane in it and Lucus injector cleaner and pulled the plugs they were black!!!!! I have never changed my fuel programmer setting always been the factory setting started it up was little ruff for a few seconds but now seems much better

the fuel controllers dont always work well right out of the box..they are designed to add fuel ..thats why I like to set them up with an o2 sensor...if you disconnect power to the controller then start it will run the joyner factory fuel map untill you power fuel controller back up

      I have a 2009 Trooper that when I first start it it runs great but after about a min it starts to cut out under acceleration but clears out when it gets revved up.  I downloaded the manual from   Joyner-usa.com   but it doesn't help much,  Mine doesn't have a OBD port on it and my son who is a mechanic said he can wire one in if we have a wiring diagram for the CPU but the wiring diagram of the CPU that is in the manual is for a 3 cylinder engine.  The manual talks about a MIL light that can flash out a code but I don't know where that is and even if I did find it they  don't tell me how to read it.  I have tried the coil and the map sensor and that didn't help I checked the TPS and it checks OK.  I emailed Joyner and all I got from them is there should be a OBD port on it and then they said they checked and found some don't have it,  No help from them. Anybody run into this problem or know were I can turn to get some help on this, even a good wiring diagram of the CPU would be a big help.
      Thanks for you help

      Hello there, I have 4 T2 troopers, 2 of them start and run like Champs, 2 of them have the issue. They will crank and crank but not start. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get them going, then they will run all day long and fire up at will every time. It's just the cold start they have a problem with. Since I have 2 that run good, I have swapped every part you can think of from the fuel system to ignition system with no success. I'm pretty stumped and am looking for any advice

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      Fuel pump runs but nothing is getting tô it. I tried putting a vacuum on the outlet hose of pump and it wouldn't pull anything. This machine sat for a year and a half unused. Is there a way to prime the lines?  What could be the cause of the fuel not getting tô the pump?
