Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

2 Answers

05 Altima, car will not go when the accelerator is pressed

The car will idle and go into gear but when the gas is pressed it will not go or rev. I think it might be the alternator. The battery had came on and if you hook up cables for a little while it will run right for just a little while

Is the engine bogging down? or no responce at all? i would bring the battery to the nearest discount or autozone for a free battery charge and have them test the battery first . if the battery was low or shorted it could cause the problem your having .if it just bogging after that if it runs fine for a little while i would get it to autozone to test the alternator free test aswell. a shorted battery a blown fusable link or a bad alternator could do the same thing which would use all the voltage from the battery

Does you car engine speed up when you hit the accelerator when the car is in park or nuetral? If it does then it may be computer problem. If it does not then it sounds like a accelerator cable is disconnected.

    Sounds like good advise. I am not sure what it would be worth but you may want to try putting the car in another gear besides drive and see what happens. Either way get your electrical stuff checked out. Hope is it simple fix of a battery.

If its been without the line for over a year, I Highly doubt it. Look into IAC valve. Most are installed with 2 screws, easy to adjust. Idle Air Control Valve. Look that up, for a start.

First thing to try would be different fuel. Use a fuel stabilizer and fill with good gas. see if that helps. Also, check the fuel pressure.

Engine revs but no acceleration


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

My Toyota Quantum 2.7GL idles but does not rev up. i ve changed the fuel pump and filter but still it starts, idles but does not rev up when you press the accelerator?


We do not have this model in US, but I assume it is a new model 2016-17. You throttle (and the "rev" ) is controlled by the computer. The fact that your car is idles - should mean that your computer is fine! There are two types of idle control: 1st- when you have a bypass of the throttle, which lets the throttle flop stay close while idling and let's the air into the motor through a bypass and electronically controlled idle switch. Inspect your throttle - the electronic/metal unit located on the large pipe through which the air gets into the motor: if you have a "bypass" for the air then you need to inspect your throttle body as it could be your problem.
2. most likely you do not have a bypass and your idle is controlled by your throttle body, then it is sure working fine and your only issue is that your engine computer does not know that you press the accelerator. Your gas pedal has an electrical unit on it which connects to the engine computer- inspect the connector/wires if all looks fine most likely your accelerator sensor does not work- you need to change the gas pedal unit ( I think it called accelerator sensor).
Good luck.
