Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

Looses power and shuts off

After my truck runs and warms up if I let off of the accelerator to slow down or stop it shuts off when I restart it the truck begins jerking and sputtering what would cause this. The service engine code for the MAF sensor comes up but occasionally code 105 and 110 come up. I can clear the code and sometimes different codes come up not the same ones each time. Can someone explain and help me with this problem?

I had a similar problem. I changed the distributor cap myself for less than $20 and it fixed the problem.

Backfiring and looses power when i accelerate


When you shut the car off for one minute and restart the engine. How long before the symptoms reappear? My first two guesses would be to check out the EGR valve and the fuel filter. Please write back with more specific information. The more information, the better. I don't know what tools and test equipment you have. Depending on what you write back, find, or fix. You may need to run more tests to narrow down the search. What year is your Rodeo? Can you have the codes read? The codes can be very helpful in diagnosing the problem. Good luck.

Loss of power to renault megane diesel 1.9 dti


biggest cause of loss of power on this model is the accelerator pedal module ,what happens is the car runs ok then just loses power stop and turn it off then restart and it runs ok again for a while ,time between slow downs can vary depending driving conditions.

Rough idle


Sounds like a automatic choke sticking....Take the air duct loose from carb..While accelerating engine spray bottle throttle spray in.....as the car tries to die...stop spraying...Repeat 3 or 4 times.....It will clean your injectors. Runs alot better...Remember....bottle throttle spray...not carborator spray

Problems accelerating


the engine tickover is too slow when the engine is cold its running on cold start, ie:choke,, after it warms up the engine slows down this is what is causing it to stall in gear,, get some one to hold the brakes hard on and with the engine running in gear ajust the tick over till its reving at 750 - 850 rpm the revs will go up a bit when its out of gear,, before you pick a gear to go into push the foot brake down to stop the car lurching,,,

I have a 1999 civic ex auto. when i first start the car and drive it run fine for about 5 mins then the car slows down and wont accelerate at all. from a dead stop it take about 10 sec to get up to 20 mph....


try moving the shifter to first and then second gear, until you get to drive. if one fails to switch then it can be a transmision problem. when that happens also try shutting of the car and restarting it and see if it continues to do the same thing. this might be because the trans is warm and does not shift properly, also the result being you need a knew trasnmision.

Momentarily Sluggish Acceleration


Are you loosing power to the ecu when the car is shut down? most cars with an ECU that controls timing, fuel, or boost can be forced to relearn the car if the ECU looses power (called a "limp" mode). I'd look into this. Also are you getting any check engine lights? considering the description of the problem, this would help to diagnose. Try getting the car started and running normally, then turn the car off but do not kill the power to the car, just stop the motor from running...Fire the engine back up and try to give the car a good stomp on the gas and see if you get the same sluggish problems...my 2 cents... Good luck future auto DIY's

Initially starts fine, runs fine, then stalls at the first stop.


This is a fuel pump issue. i would replace it and the lines as well.also, a minor tune up wouldn't hurt as well. wires plugs distributor cap points etc...
