My 3.8 olds silhouette keeps bogging and stalling took it to shop said it was egr put a new one on kept doing same thing took it back said it was air flow sensor put that on keeps doing same thing bogging...

Just took our 3.8 olds silhouette in for almost the same thing...first they changed and greased all the coils, yet it kept doing the puttering, soft bucking, and sputtering thing with just a bit of shifting would come up and then no codes would come up, so they changed out the is riding somewhat smoother, yet still has a little sputtering and even died once or twice but always starts right back up...they found a crack in the radiator that was leaking coolant on to the throttle positon sensor (TPS) , which now with the new computer in it, that is the only code coming our plans are to get a new throttle position sensor (TPS) and replace it ourselves, because we have already paid the mechanics shop $491.53 for the repairs stated above...but we have to replace the radiator before putting in a new sensor or it will get fouled up too! I am hoping the TPS replacement will finally cure my green space shuttle! I also hope this helps your predicament too!

Try cleaning the throttle body (throttle body cleanner ONLY). Uncover the TB (engine off) & inspect the butterfly by moving the throttle by hand, if the underside & down inside the TB has a bunch of carbon (black soot) that could hamper with the idle! Also, check the fuel pressure @ the rail, under 60 psi could cause bad idle. Air filter clean? Did you make SURE that the terminals under the spider injector wiring harness has NO pins bent over during connection?! Also could check the throttle possition sensor & the mass air flow sensor if need be.

Engine sputtering, engine skips at low speeds, emission light on

Is the service engine light on? If so, check with you local auto parts store....most will scan the code free or loan you a scanner in their parking lot.

2005 Nissan sentra puttering.

It may not turn off the check engine light, sometimes those have to be reset. The issue of the car sputtering could have many causes. I would first check to see if you have loose plug wires or cracked wires. Check for cracks by putting the car in a dark area and looking at the engine while it runs. If you see sparks coming from the wires, it's time for a change. If that cures it, stop there. If not, move on to the plugs and check them out.
