    I removed and replaced the wirings one at a time. They are not the standard spark plug wires. They are electrical wires that plug into the coil which, plugs directly onto the spark plug.

    It could very well be water in the gas because it does'nt miss noticeably in neutral or park and runs good at times when driving.



    Thanks Guys I do appreciate ya!

Check spark plug wire connection are firm and proper.  If all good have friend start vehicle foot on brake, and one foot on the accelerator holding the engine  revs to 2000 or so.  spray a mist of water on the ignition wires.  IF miss gets worse then wires are the cause.

Merely obvious first... was there a miss before you changed the plugs as you may have put the spark plug cables in the wrong order... a mistake in side by side cylinders wouldn't be that obvious at idle.

Second... buy a bottle or two of gas line antifreeze... well buy a few as it's winter time. add one now and the next time you fill up.... if the spark plug order is correct.... it could possibly be water in the fuel it happens and the gas line antifreeze is actually alchohol... it soaks up the water.

Something mechanical, ignition, or fuel.
It can run rough under a load such as in gear and ok in neutral with no load. Have you checked the plugs and dist cap ?

Got a 1995 nissan maxima with 179,000 that hesitates or misses.


hello, also check plug wires,distributator, cap and rotor button, you can check plug wires,at knight time, crank engine, with hood up, walk around car, look at plug wires while motor is running, see if any sparks are coming from plug wires, also if it clunks, like you said, you may have broke motor mount, transmission mount, check for air lines leaking also

I have a 1995 maxima with hickup or hesitation


It sounds like a clogged catalytic converter. If you can unbolt it; try unbolted it and see how it runs. Also try unplugging the sparkplug wire one at a time and see if the shaking gets worse or stays the same. When you pull a spark plug wire and the car stops shaking then that cylinder isn't firing. Watch out though, you'll get a nasty shock if you do it without insulated pliers. It could be a stuck valve or bad ignition.
