Question about 1995 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Rough, chugging when driving and conking out

My 1995 Altima has been fine until this week when it starting running very rough, chugging, losing rpms while driving and conking out several times. The engine always restarted immediately. The battery, water pump, and alternator were just changed. I filled the gas tank and added STP, changed the fuel filter but it still is doing the same thing.
I'm also having trouble shifting the automatic transmission since water was spilled into the console, but this happened months ago and the car shifted fine in cooler weather but it's difficult shifting when very hot. I'm in South Florida so the weather is very hot an humid.
For now I need to find out what the problem is with the "chugging" and"conking out" during driving. I'm not driving it for now. It has 130,000 miles on it.

    Clarifying the problem:
    The car starts, but runs jerkily and conks out while I'm driving or after I restart it and change from neutral or park to drive. If that helps

    Disconnect the mass air flow sensor, if the issue goes away then that is the problem.

    You may have a fuel pump failing, test the pressure when it is running bad, also run quick test for trouble codes.

Could also be a faulty mass air flow meter, or throttle position sensor. It's hard to tell, you need to take it to a shop to be properly diagnosed.

My 1998 Volkswagen Beetle keeps dying.


With the car running rough it could cause the harsh shift but if it is staying at 5000 rpms then the ****** is about to go out on you. The rough idle sounds like a vacuum leak. If you can keep the car running at idle listen for a sucking type sound. That would indicate where the vacuum leak is.
