Yesterday i realized that my oil light comes on when i floor the brakes. I can just be idling at a stop light and press down all the way on the brake pedal and make the oil light flicker and stay on, until i release the breaks, I called nissan and they had no clue and the "pro nissan expert" will be in on monday so he suggested taking it down to him on monday. Also Im cleaning out my throttle body today or tomarrow, I found an actual throttle body cleaner so that was cool, so I just take off the big intake tube, spray a bunch of that stuff in there with my gas pedal floored while the car is off, then scrub it with my wife's toothbrush(hahaha) then fire up the engine until the white smoke stops flying out of my muffler?

I just did my throttle body today. I used the Gumout Throttle body cleaner. I start out by spraying a whole bunch in there and used the toothbrush as much as I could but it hard to see down the throttle body.
So I followed the cans instructions, turn the car on and rev'd it for 10 sec while spraying cleaner into the TB. Then waiting ten seconds and repeating the process until the can ran out. My Cat did get real hot and made some weird noises but the car runs great now and I hope it won't stall in the morning anymore.

Ahh, come on, dont be lazy, take the Throttle body off and clean it. It will get a better clean that way. It took me maybe an hour from start to finish doing it that way.

LOL, my car used to stall in the mornings too. Doesnt that suck! I had done an extensive tune-up and that did not fix it. So I took out my EGR and BPT and "wala". Symptom cured.

It looks like it would take me about a month to remove the throttle body from my "high port" 91' Sentra.

Ack! No. leave the throttle plate closed with the engine off and spray just a little bit. Use those white shop towels. Clean the top outside the throttle plate, then spray the cloth and hold the throttle plate open. Clean the top where the plate closes and behind their, then clean the actual throttle plate. Repeat for the bottom half. The actual order isn't important, but that is how I do it. Using a white shop towel really helps you see when you have it clean. I bought a pack of ten for a couple dollars and am still using just one towel for cleaning the throttle body.
Use as little spray as possible. That stuff can affect all the idle control stuff inside the intake manifold.

thanks for the help with the throttle body cleaning, I'll probably use the white towels cause ive got tons of those and my wife didn't like the whole cleaning my car with her toothbrush idea. anybody have any clue about the oil light thing?
