Question about 1994 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Sputtering between 1000-2000 rpms

I have a 1994 Nissan Maxima, SOHC, close to 154,000 miles. I have an ongoing issue where the car sputters when accelerating, often having difficulty going from 1100-2000 rpms. Then the rpms jump from about 1500/1600 to 2000 rpms. Normally this occurs if I attempt to floor the fuel pedal. If I gently accelerate, it still does it but less frequently. I have recently had the transmission rebuilt (about 1 year ago). I have also replaced the MASS air flow sensor. There is adequate fluid in the transmission. I have had a tune up less than 20,000 miles ago.

Can anyone give me a clue?
Any help is appreciated.

Car is sputtering at high rpms and have a new turn up on it


Check the gap between the prong and contact of the spark plugs. Your local parts store can look up the gap measurement and should have a gap tool you can buy for really cheap, sounds like that may be the issue.

When I take off it sputters, up to 40 to 60 mph it sputters, what is that ? I just bought this '97 Nissan Maxima, it runs real good except that problem. We've tried putting injector fluid in it, it works...


This could be water in the gas lines or, you may have wire and plug issues as well. I would take this car in for a full scale tune up. make sure they check the distributor points as well. Changing the fuel pump wouldn't hurt at all.
