Sounds like an evap leak. Check to see if you have a vacuum hose that has come loose or is crimped. Probably somewhere close to the MAP sensor. The battery wouldn't make the car sputter. If there are any check engine lights on you could get a free diag from any Autozone to get a code or maybe they have the cure sitting on their shelf. Hope this helps.

You may be having more than one problem in my opinion. First you may have a BAD alternator and the battery went dead, however if this been going on for a while it may have damaged the cells in the battery and you may need BOTH. Before you do anything check battery connection cables for corrosion and make sure that they are secured tightly. If that all good check voltage on battery should be at least 12volts. If NOT charge battery and check car's charging system and make sure alternator works should be at least 14volts at battery terminals with vehicle running. Also from my experience with this vehicle common problems are bad intake manifold gasket, mass air flow sensor, cranks sensor/cam sensor and bad fuel pump or relay. I know its a lot of info contact if you need more help. Good Luck Thanks for using FIX YA

My 2006 Nissan Altima started skipping or a slight buck today and has off and off for a few weeks, but today when it did that, the engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said it was the crank...


My 2006 Altima used to be HORRIBLE. The engine would sometimes be hard to start. Bucked like crazy. It would stall randomly if I was stopped or driving slowly (stopping or going for a light, while slowing down during turns). After a couple calls, over a period of months, checking for recalls they finally said there was a recall on the entire engine. Thank goodness my car was still under its 100K miles. Nissan fixed it, as they should. They also claimed the crank sensors needed to be replaced & that my engine mount was cracked. We just paid for all that b/c we were finally glad to have the engine problem resolved free of charge. Loooong story short, have your local dealer check for recalls.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied


My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
