Having problems with your Nissan Altima ?
i have a 2002 nissan altima se 4 cylinder that idles rough like it wants to cut off when you come to a stop. and every once in a while the car will cut off and it will start right back up.
here are the things that have been done to it to try to fix it,
1) a used fuel line and fuel injectors put on,
2) a new set of spark plugs,
3) checked fuel coming out of fuel filter and it was flowing strong,
any idea what could be wrong with my car
Let's start with some very basics. Run a compression test and make sure that all the cylinders are close in PSI. It sounds like you are only running on 2 1/2 - 3 cylinders(low compression). Let me know. When you are doing this, make sure all vacuum hoses are in good condition. Look underneath the car after it has ran for about 10 minutes and look for a part of the exhaust that is glowing red. A plugged catalytic converter will do this also causing excessive back pressure to the cylinders not allowing it to breath. The engine in merely an air pump... sucks in, pushes out. The more it can't push out, the less it can **** in also causing a very very lean condition. Let me know what you see.
