If the transmission is full and not slipping what you seem to be describing is a plugged catalytic converter. Are you getting good exhaust pressure when you rev the engine. Usually if you put your hand over the exhaust pipe and then rev the engine you will know if the exhaust pressure increases substantially. If not you can check by undoing the manifold bolts enough to cause the exhaust to leak at the manifold and try again. If it runs good then replace the converter.

1994 nissan runs rough when you take off.


You probably can't but if it's running rough on acceleration under load, the first suspect is a dirty fuel filter.

I have replaced the cam shift sensor 2 times now and the car will run fine for 100 miles or so and then the check engine light will come on and it will do the same thing... Run rough and stutter when...


The cam doesnt create a rough idle it will be hard to start depends on what year you have and the engine size you may be looking at replacing the ignition coils you b asically have a misfire

Engine running really rough...whine sound when it isn't.


The run rough problem is due a cyl.mis firing,it becaused buy a bad plug,plug wire,coil,or even the ing.module. the servive eng.light flashing is warning you that you have a cyl.misfire that can cause damaget to your catltic converter if you continue to drive it.with may lead to why you think you have a exhaust problem,it may be colgged.

2003 cavalier trac and engine light on


you are probably throwing code p0300 random misfire. it sounds like your ignition module which sits on the top of you engine it is silver with find and held in with 3 torx screws it controls 2 cylinders at a time so when it goes your car will be only running on 2 cylinders this can severely damage you catalytic converter. and a dealer won't cover it under the emissions warranty. the module costs around $100 so you might want to diagnose it.
