My car had that problem and now it's fixed.
I had to replace the cam censor. Don't ask me why, it was really weird.. it only started acting up when the car heated up. However, the car would eventually turn off if I didn't keep it idling with one foot on the gas and one on the break at a stop.
You can take your car to the mechanic and ask them to check the cam censor.

My 1998 200sx stopped accelerating while getting on freeway.


Could be the cable that actavates the throttle plate on the intake..
The cable comes from the gas pedel and pulls on the throttle plane in the intake manifold.. opening the plate to let air flow through to the engine. On the other side from the cable is a plastic sensor with wires attached to it this is the Throttle position sensor.. if this is disconnected or broken the computer cannot receive the single that you are pushing on the gas pedel.. very rare for the throttle position sensor to break completly.. best posibility broken cable.. open hood find cable connected to throttle body, have someone in car push pedel see if it moves. Good luck.

Car stalls and dies, will stay running if keep foot on gas pedal, it was ok until upper intake removed to replace spark plugs. i have installed new plug wires also, new upper intake gaskets, new iac valve....


sounds like a vacuum leak at the manifold. spray wd40 or simillar around manifold to check for leaks. if you find a leak, engine will flare up.

Clicking noise when accelerating


It's hard to diagnose with just the small information you have stated, but it 'sounds' like it's that Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve gasket.

In your cylinder head is a runner that brings exhaust gas up through the intake manifold.
The EGR valve is attached to the intake manifold, and the sensory part of the EGR valve sits down in the pathway of the runner.

A bad EGR valve gasket will let exhaust gasses escape, making the sound you described.

The knock sensor is threaded into the block of the engine, just below where the cylinder head sits. You will need to remove the intake plenum (upper and lower) to access this part.
