Need some help with my 1994 KA24DE.

Not a 240sx though (Sorry).

its my nissan truck. 12 valve with auto trans.

Its sluggish and slow. sometimes hesitates. No power climbing. good for cruising on hwy speeds and thats it. no torque. Not sure whats wrong. It has 308k miles.

Does anyone have any ideas? I did a full tune up.

wth ^ dont buy anything yet till u be more specific....might want to look over the tranny per say torque converter... if the engine runs fine... clean ur maf tho...
if ur truck is a 12 valve then its a ka24e, not a de.

the tranny needs a flush and the torque converter might be going out.

Wow. 300k miles, that's like a diesel. I didn't have a truck... I had that same problem. But I had really bad gas consumption. To get more power I got an sr and now I'm happy

Is there any oil consumption? Check your compression.
