Is this diesel or petrol? Cars nowadays are getting complicated and harder to fix. Check with your fuel system first and if you haven't change your fuel filter for a long time replace it. It might be your car is starving on fuel due to dirty fuel and blocked fuel filter. Check your air filter as well it might be clogged with dirt and dust restricting air going to the intake manifold. Do that first and if still the same problem after that get back to me.

I drive a Nissan 1400 bakkie (not a champ) i drives good and then starts jerking and wants to die as soon i i give petrol it sounds like its smothering


hi, personally ..i love that bakkie. Ok you changed points condensor, petrol filter! please check.. When it cuts out 1. if the ignition coil is not hot, if so thats your problem.2. also on the carb... over the needle and seat there is a tiny filter... somtimes gets blocked. 3. also check when it stolls if the fuel pump is not hot or pull the outlet fuel from the pump
and crank the engine... note if fuel comes out sufficiently.

Started running bad when I turned on the heater


misfire can be caused by a few things. weak spark, low fuel pressure, to much fuel, vaccum leak. a simple check on this engine is to remove vaccum line from fuel pressure regulator, on fuel rail, driver side of engine. if you crank engine, and fuel leaks out vaccum port on regulator, its ruptured and causing rich fuel mixture. try that and let me know.

I have a 99 oldsmobile silhouette van - we have changed the plugs, o2 sensor, had the njectors cleaned, and the car runs bad.... if you press on the gas the RPM go down - it is like it is smothering.. Went...


Look under your distributor cap. It should be clean have good metal contacts. Also look at the rotor button right under that. It should have a nice shiny metal contact. This spins under your distributor and fires your spark plugs. Wipe it with your finger or a rag and drive. If that was it...replace the cap and rotor.

Sounds like a plugged exhaust system to me... check the tailpipe... try to smother it with your hand while wearing a oven mitten. You should feel pressure building up... check the feel of the pressure with another vehicle. Mufflers do come apart inside and pieces get stuck in the tail pipe forcing the engine to idle or even just stall out... In this case you are fortunate to get 10mph. Good luck....
