Bringing a 2002 X trail back into service after 2 years of storage


Hi , I am a fan of this forum. Thanks to all those who those who placed solutions to help me solve Exy problems I experienced in the past. As a new member, this is my first post, I am wondering if I could get some answers to a hassle I have with bringing our 2002 X Trail auto. back into service after 2 years of storage in our shed.
Throughout the storage time, I had the car on a trickle charge and every one to two months I started the engine to reach operating temperature and drove it several times up and down our driveway. Each time the car started first time and idled smoothly at the recommended revs.
Just recently, to get it ready for registration etc. after checking oil , coolant and fluid levels I started the car . As before, it fired first time and idled and I drove it about 4 km to and from the inspection station without drama. With full rego and a top up of UL 95 I drove about 30 km no probs. On the return journey, after stopping the engine briefly, it misfired on starting and idled roughly.
Soon after the car resumed a normal idle and we drove home. After some hours I started the car and again it misfired and idled roughly, unburnt fuel came out of the exhaust.
The car has done 250,000 km. At about 195,000 the cam and crank sensors were replaced. The Nissan call back oxygen sensor was replaced at about 135,000.
I am wondering, from reading the forum, if the ECU should be reset.? Does the X Trail fuel management system need time to reset?, or are the sensors suspect?
Thanks

To me this sounds like an injector problem, probably clogged after the 250,000kms.
Get them thoroughly cleaned and see how it goes.

Thanks Kev for your thoughts. After some diagnostic work with a mechanic friend today; aren't they the best friends to have!!; he diagnosed a blown head gasket as the main culprit, though your thoughts about the injectors is I think spot on. Now I guess now I shall troll the forum treasures to get the good oil on renewing an exy head gasket. I am guessing at that time it would be best to renew the timing chain, water pump etc. Is this correct?
If the price for the parts and head servicing is not prohibitive, I have wielded a spanner or to , sometimes in anger at various cars over the years, maybe the repair is justified considering the mileage. Hmm!, never touched an exy head though.
Thanks
Tony

If you are handy with a spanner and thinking of doing the timing chain, tensioner, water pump, etc then have a good read of this thread first...]T30 engine rebuild

If I had to do a head gasket with a 250,000km engine I think I'd be doing the full rebuild provided the rest of the Xtrail was worth the effort emoticon
