Dumb Nissan truck

Ok. This kid who go's to my school has a nissan pickup 4x4 with a straight four and a five speed. I really don't care, but why does his truck move foward when it's started?

dont know why...but Im not sure it makes the truck dumb. I had a 89 Nissan SEV6 pickup...I have to say it was the overall best vehicle Ive ever owned.never owned anything as reliable.

Yeah, my dad has a 86 pre hard body nissan pickup. He's put it through normal truck duties regularly, but also has did his best to keep it in shape, besides a couple times getting a/c work done on it, it also has been extremely reliable. It has over 200k on the odometer and is still running like it did back when he bought it brand new.

I'd say the clutch needs adjusting if its doing it while in gear with clutch pressed in...
If that doesnt help uhhh id say your needa take the tranny out, n get the pressureplate off and see why the clutch disc is engaging.

Have a good one dude.

I called it dumb because I don't like import cars. Unless they are of German or Italian make. I'm not into sports cars, but those are the only imports I like. Yeah I assume that he is pressing the clutch in all the way, unless HE is dumb. It has a straight four in it. So adding a 2 1/2" dual exhaust on it with a cherry bomb turbo made it sound like, well, an import car!

as stated, clutch isn't fully disengaging.

on another note, you cannot call a car "dumb" because you don't like it. i don't like bronco's, is it dumb? actually, i don't like ford in general, all ford is dumb! do you know how fast my *** would be kicked if i had that attitude? everybody has there own style, who are we to tell them its dumb?
i'm off my soapbox now

I imagine that the "dumb" Nissan has a hydraulic clutch. Check the fluid in the reservoir............................probably not disengaging the clutch all the way.

BTW...Broncos are ugly..........................kidding.

I just use the word "dumb" a lot. I think it did have a hydraulic clutch in it. I say Nissans are dumb, just like mj lover said that fords were dumb. It's all opinion.
