Question about 2004 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Poor Acceleration on Start 97' Tracer

When i usually start my car and press on the gas, it barely moves, but still revs up...almost like having the car in neutral and revving the engine, but it gradually picks up speed and once i hit about 30-40mph it seems to run normal again. then sometimes it will do it again when i stop. the problem seems to be getting worse and yesterday the check engine light came on. what could my problem be?

Thanks in advance,
Ryan

Acceleration - cannot get above 40 miles per hr.


If the engine revs up while in drive and running at 40mph, your transmission is probably slipping. Try checking your transmission fluid level. If it is OK, I would get it by a garage to have them look at it to cofirm.

I don't have steady rpm between 1000 and 2000 rpm


Pros
  • The EGR valve is vital to your car's emission controls.
Cons
  • When the EGR valve goes bad, it must be replaced.
Description
  • EGR Valve = Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve.
  • The EGR valve controls formation of noxious emissions.
  • Rough idle and poor acceleration can be caused by a faulty EGR valve.

318ti M44 acceleration problem


Have someone handy to press the gas pedal for you after the engine has warmed up well; best if driven.

While you listen at the exhaust pipe, have your helper increase the revs slowly and note whether the exhaust note changes to a hiss, instead of the sound of an engine firing.

You may have a decayed catalytic convertor and when they come apart inside, they can clog mufflers and resonators (the second, smaller muffler).

I've had this happen on more than one car and when it happened on a Fiat Strada years ago, since the routing of the system was fairly straight and made of heavier gauge stainless steel, I fired two shots with a .357 magnum into the tailpipe.
Never had another problem with it.
