Question about 1997 Nissan Pickup
This problem is very sporadic and occurs when I start my engine. When I start my engine it seems like it want to die or cut off. To combat that, I would riv the trottle, while in neutrel and the engine would shake, sputter and want to die. While in drive, first and second gear would start sputtering and want to die, but as I get up to speed it seems to be ok. This will happen in the morning before work. Later in the day, the car would go back to normal. This last time the check engine appear and then went away. This issue has happened twice, months in between. Please advise....

SOURCE: Car sputters when you accelerate
is the engine lite on? if a misfire shows, and the plugs are new, could be coil or wires. how does it idle? maybe air leak between mass air flow sensor and throttlebody.

You have an engine misfire....unless you have expertise in this area you need to see your local shop as you will damage your catalytic converter if you continue to drive. An OBD II scan tool will id the cylinder to help but knowledge here is key!!

HELLO: I WAS LOOKING AT ALL THE PROBLEMS FOLKS ARE HAVING AND I SAW YOURS AND I STOPPED DEAD IN MY TRACKS BECAUSE #1 I LOVE A CHALLENGES AND#2 I CANT BELIEVE SOME ONE WOULD CLEAN AN OX SENCER ! THEY CAN NOT BE CLEANED AND MY BIG QUESTION IS HOW IN THE WORLD DID IT GET SO DIRTY IT COULD BE THAT NOTICEABLE,THE ONLY THING THAT IS TO COME IN CONTACT WITH IT IS EXHAUST AT 1300 DEGREES? IF IT WAS THAT DIRTY THEIR IS MORE THAN EXHAUST ENTERING THE EXHAUST SYSTEM, YOUR FRIEND MAY BE RIGHT,BUT FIRST LETS TRY THIS. DOES IT BLOW WHITE SMOKE WHEN RUNNING?DO U HAVE TO PUT WATER IN IT NOW AND THEN?,ALSO HAVE SOMEONE DO A COMPRESSION TEST ON THE ENGINE AND CHECK THE SPARK PLUGS AT-THE SAME TIME TO SEE HOW THEY ARE BURNNING(SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT TO LOOK FOR) YOUR LOCAL AUTO SUPPLY STORE HAS THE SPECS FOR YOUR ENGINE (COMPRESSION FOR THE CYLINDERS)IN REPAIR MANUALS FOR YOUR TRUCK,$15-20.IF YOUR TRUCK WAS RUN AT A LONG TIME AND GOT OVER HEATED TO A CRITICAL POINT MANY THINGS MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED SO IN THIS CASE START WITH THE BIG ONE FIRST, THE MOTOR! IF IT CHECKS OUT OK DO THE PROCESS OF ELIMINATION. PLUGS WIRES NEW OX SENSERS JUST TO MENTION A. WELL HOPE I GAVE U SOME HELP!, GOOD LUCK TO U.
