Sounds like a coil type problem. Use multi meter to check or just replace coil with known good one and see what happens...

possible --if there is a pressure cap on it --if not then n you haven't mentioned when it over heats so here are a few answers
if it over heats all the time regardless have a compression test done--- have a flow test done on the radiator --check the radiator cap
if it over heats at lights ,in slow traffic or when the vehicle is goin slow with high rpms ( hilly work) but cools down when a road speed is achieved then replace the viscous fan hub or check operation of the electric fans
If the engine over heats but the temp gauge reads normal then bleed the air lock out of the cooling system
if it over heats at high speed then check the core fins are no falling off or there is nothing in front of the radiator preventing air flow,or check hat it is engaging overdrive,

Did you hear the one about the Terrano with a charging problem?
Just fix it by replacing the thermostat!
Seriously - check your temperature gauge does it take ages for the needle to barely get off cold? (and is the heater useless?)
The needle should get to just below half way in 2 or 3 minutes.
If the thermostat is stuck open, then the engine does not get up to temperature.
The glow plug control senses the engine temperature is cold, so the glow plugs stay on for an extended period of time (sometimes 10 to 15 minutes) - short trips particularly in winter, with more headlight driving - the alternator can't keep up with the current being drawn off and from time to time you will end up with a flat battery!
A thermostat is cheap, and easy to replace (three bolts and about a half litre of coolant - I pumped the coolant from the top of the radiator, and didn't spill a drop when the thermostat housing was removed).
Sure enough, as the engine temperature reached about 50C, the glow plugs turned off.

Are they stock injectors? Injectors can come in different Lbs. Make sure you got the right ones. And if so could be defective.

MIL on? Plugs, wires, dist cap & rotor, MAF sensor, hard to say with such a vague statement.

Seen 8 wires to radio, none orange. Are you looking for wire HOT AT ALL TIMES or HOT IN ACC OR RUN?

1987 Nissan... | Answered on May 16, 2014

If you are turning the key to the off position and it continues to run, there must be a problem in the switch-- no doubt in the steering column. You may need to buy a new lock cylinder. This is an interesting problem, and one that I have never encountered before.

Hi Ebony,here's a link,could be your fusible links,they are at your positive battery cable,check the wires for swollen or burnt,the fusible link is about 22.00 and the dealer can order you one,I have a 85 nissan 720 truck,similar to your's replaced mine,there's a wire going to starter,if bad it won't start.

Reversing battery connections results in immediate, irreversible damage. You will have to troubleshoot everything and make replacements to get your Niissan running again.
