We have replaced plugs, wires, distributor, fuel filter and pump, entire exhaust and convertors, intake and exhaust manifold gaskets and also checked for vaccum leaks. What would you do next? We are stumped!

    Yes the computer was reset by the Tech. When the car is in park it idles great. Within 2 months the converters have been replaced twice. The cars runs rough and stalls when it gets hot. We also replaced the coolant sensor.

    that all must have been expensive... be that as it may take the care down to autozone they will scan the codes for free and let you know what is wrong... write down the code(s) and post them here as well.

A lot of people have reported this issue with the 2001 Nissan altima. it is a design flaw and the idle rpm fluctuation is caused by a bad intake manifold gasket. the part only costs about 10 dollars but do to the 5-10 hours it takes to replace it is a very costly on the labor side

My 93 nissan sentra service two door five speed had rust and water in the fuel I replaced the pump filter and cleaned the tank why dose two of the cylinders not miss like there not firing


Pull out the spark plugs to see their condition, if they look fine check the resistance on the wires and make sure the distributor(if it has one) is fine too. Another thing too it can be a fuel injector that went bad

1998 Nissan Altima 2.4L auto trans. Code P0302(cylinder#2 misfire) When accelerating from a dead stop the engine will misfire for a second or two and then smooth out as i accelerate. At steady highway...


If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
I know the elm327 plastic 1.4 can help you reset the code....
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

For the firing order and wiring routing2_bing.gif for the 8 plug 4 cylinder engine: (Plugs on the intake manifold side are coded "I", and on the exhaust manifold side are coded "E")
