The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exceptions to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Truck runs fine for a while and then it feels like it is hesitating and the rpm gauge will fluxuate for a minute or two then back to normal off and on


This could possibly be a vacuum fault eg;air sucking some where
also check the hose from the air filter to the engine any small splits will cause the issue
Good Luck :)

RPM high n everytime i shift then car speed keeps on going fast n i dont even step onto the accelerator so i can add more speed of stay on a constant speed


You have to change your clutch kit. I just had this issue and after changing it it runs smooth again.
Just to confirm, you shift gear up, your engine roars (goes up to 4000 or more RPM) but doesn't gain speed until few seconds later after the RPM is back to normal.
If so that's the clutch plate causing the issue.

My 95 nissan is bucking and having acceleration loss. And shes so stubborn that she can't maintain the same speed. Also when she idles she fluxuates from half an rpm to 1 rpm. Does anyone know where to...


it is most likely the throttle position sensor. it could be mass airflow sensor. are there any codes? best bet get it scoped and see which sensors out of range.

Do you have a check engine light on? First thing I would do is unplug the IAC motor when the engine is warm. If the idle speed doesn't change you have a vacuum leak or a bad IAC motor. If the idle speed goes down you might have a bad TPS or IAC

Engine vibration at idle, goes away after a little acceleration, mostly when the engine is still cold..


Check the rpm gauge while running. If the RPM needle fluxuates while idling that is caused by a defective spark plug and or a spark plug wire
