Titan mpg improvements

Showing 6 out of 6 Posts
Question From wvallroy on Titan mpg improvements

just bought 2006 Nissan Titan with v8 and am looking for sugestions on improving milage.
cannot buy lots of stuff at once but am looking at cold air intake, plug in programmer, and throttle body spacers?
does anyone know what is best or where i should start? Thanks.

Response From Hammer Time

Let me save you a bunch of money right now. Forget all that stuff.

They are all just gimmicks to make the seller money and will do nothing for you. You have a computer controlled car that maintains a constant 14.7:1 air fuel ration. It is already programmed for optimum mileage and power. You just need ton keep it maintained properly including all the filters, ignition and especially the tire pressures. Change you driving habits and use less accessories is about the only way your going to improve your mileage.

Quote by Hammer Time ">>It is already programmed for optimum mileage and power."

He's right on - if they could have made the thing do better it was done already and the rest is a waste.

If you wanted better gas mileage why did you buy a large V8 truck?

Response From wvallroy

been driving small cars and trucks all my life. needed one to haul equipment, tools, and ladders. i knew what i was gettin into thank you very much.
seems like you guys know what you're talking about, thanks for the help.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

The point I/we are making is that it's really needing the fuel to do what it can do. Any car maker would be nuts to make it less than optimal as it's a dog-eat-dog competitive industry. People think there are tricks that were withheld in original engineering and it just isn't true.

There are two things you can do if it's all working properly that can make a smidge of help. Always keep tire pressure where it is suggested and I personally have no doubt that some high end synthetic motor oils like some Mobil 1 products boldly claim do help but it won't really be noticed. Always make sure oils are meeting or exceed manufacturer's recommendations!

As you said - you needed what it can do and some small car couldn't do that,

Response From wvallroy

i had been leaning towards an f150(better milage) but i got a deal i couldn't pass on the titan. i have a 97' hardbody 4 cyl that gets around 21 mpg stock and the wife has and altima, so i do like the nissans. anyways i wanted to thank you again, sorry if i sounded like a smart eleck--should re-read before posting. i had just heard of all these different products out there and had high hopes. oh well, the truck should pay for itself with usage.

How can I get more speed out of my car?

Question From ICe vox on How can I get more speed out of my car?

1995 Nissan Sentra (5-speed manual transmission)
4 Cylinder (sorry, don't know the size in liters) :(
127k Miles

Ok... I know that I don't have a muscle car or anything, but I was hoping for suggestions on how to make it accelerate faster and reach higher speeds. Right now... I can do 0 to 60 in 16 seconds, and I'm not entirely sure how fast it can go, as I've never taken it over 105. I was hoping someone could tell me if buying premium gas and/or octane boosters would help significantly, or if you had come across any other products that had helped. I appreciate any help. Thanks

Make that crackerbox as light as possible. Remove as much weight as possible, the spare tire, jack, etc. Get more air to the engine, new carb set-up, cold air intake. Replace stock exhaust with header. Want to go faster in the quarter mile, go with shorter rear tires. Want to go faster all out top end, highway, get taller rear tires.

What good is it going to do to change the height of the rear tires on a front wheel drive car?

What are you going to do with a carb setup on a fuel injected car?

Right you are. Change the height of the drive tyres.

I'm going to get rid of the fuel inj and add a couple of side draft carbs.

Response From Hammer Time

That's both crazy and against federal law.

That is a computer controlled car. You can't just ignore that and mount carburetors on it. Everything is tied together and has to remain working.

Response From fliptail

Okay, crazy thoughts. Nobody make, or is making any race cars out there.

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

There are several high performance cars 'out there' today. Sentra isn't one of them. Tire (tyre) size isn't gonna make a hoot of difference. Have you checked out the new Mustang, Challenger, Charger? Not to mention some of the exotics.

They are quite expensive compared to a used, paid for automobile to hop up.

Changing Tyre size does the same as changing gear ratio, okay, not as drastic a change but some.

Response From Hammer Time

It's pretty obvious that you may be out of touch with modern computer controlled cars. Most of them have ABS brake systems now and you can't just change the tire size on a couple of tires.

As I understand it, tyre size shouldn't matter, the system senses loss of rotation or lock up and relieves pressure to that brake

Response From Hammer Time

No, your wrong. Tire size has everything to do with it. ABS reads wheel speeds and compares them to each other. A smaller tire will turn at a different speed.

Response From fliptail

Like a set of worn tyres and a set of new tyres on the same automobile?

Response From fliptail

From About.com:

ABS Brakes and the Facts

The ABS is a four-wheel system that prevents wheel lock-up by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop.

Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) operate as follows:

  1. When the brakes are applied, fluid is forced from the brake master cylinder outlet ports to the HCU inlet ports. This pressure is transmitted through four normally open solenoid valves contained inside the HCU, then through the outlet ports of the HCU to each wheel.
  2. The primary (rear) circuit of the brake master cylinder feeds the front brakes.
  3. The secondary (front) circuit of the brake master cylinder feeds the rear brakes.
  4. If the anti-lock brake control module senses a wheel is about to lock, based on anti-lock brake sensor data, it closes the normally open solenoid valve for that circuit. This prevents any more fluid from entering that circuit.
  5. The anti-lock brake control module then looks at the anti-lock brake sensor signal from the affected wheel again.
  6. If that wheel is still decelerating, it opens the solenoid valve for that circuit.
  7. Once the affected wheel comes back up to speed, the anti-lock brake control module returns the solenoid valves to their normal condition allowing fluid flow to the affected brake.

I don't believe tyre height come into play in any of this.

Response From Hammer Time

OK, look, I've had enough. I'm not here to debate with people giving advice about things they know nothing about. I guarantee you that tire size has a major effect on the operation of ABS systems.
In the future, please only give advice on subjects that you actually have experience in.

end of debate

Response From fliptail

Fair enough. Cheers!

P.S. I worked on Anti-skid brake systems in the Aerospace industry long before technology evolved to allow them in automobiles.

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Fliptail;
Gotta add my two cents worth; If we are talking four wheel ABS, different tire sizes in front and rear WILL make a difference, as the circumference of the two sizes will be different, causing the wheel speed sensors to get conflicting info. Can't vision anyone taking issue with that. If it's a four wheel or all wheel drive vehicle, you are going to experience transfer case issues with different size tires. Improper tire size will affect transmission shifting as it will change VSS readings to the PCM. So, now days, it's best to just leave things alone. That was actually three cents worth. Sorry.
With that said, putting LARGE tires in the back and small tires in the front will make your car go faster as it's always going downhill.

Well, automobiles do go faster down hill. Tires, I knew that. Old habits are hard to change.

Yep, I missed that

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Sorry but I don't think a post like that belongs on this forum. You don't even know the engine size and want to make a regular car do things it was never intended to do - talk about unsafe!

There are no additives or even plain use of premium fuel that will make much difference if any....

All "crank, no start" conditions are approached in the same way. Every engine requires certain functions to be able to run. Some of these functions rely on specific components to work and some components are part of more than one function so it is important to see the whole picture to be able to conclude anything about what may have failed.

Every engine requires spark, fuel and compression to run. That's what we have to look for.

These are the basics that need to be tested and will give us the info required to isolate a cause.

1) Test for spark at the plug end of the wire using a spark tester. If none found, check for power supply on the + terminal of the coil with the key on.


2) Test for injector pulse using a small bulb called a noid light. If none found, check for power supply at one side of the injector with the key on.


3) Use a fuel pressure gauge to test for correct fuel pressure, also noticing if the pressure holds when key is shut off.


4) Perform a complete compression test and record the results. All cylinders should be over 120lbs in most cases and all be within 10% of each other.


Once you have determined which of these functions has dropped out,
you will know which system is having the problem.
