The problem is with the cable running from the pedal in the car to the exellerator in the engin. there is only one way to fix this and that is to replace the cable. What happen is the the small stings of the cable start breaking and then get stuck inside the casing. It's only a matter of time before the cable will break.

My 94 nissan sentra doesn't run smooth over 3000 rpm or if you mash the gas pedal


I have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe that did the same thing. I changed the oil pump, new oil, and head gasket. It now has power and doesn't fall on its face when I step into the throttle hard. Hope this helps.

The buzz could be the fuel pump in the gas tank.
If it will run with the throttle open it could have an issue with the idle speed control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the intake thru the valve.

My 1994 nisan sentra, limited edition has a putt in the gas... when driving, what can i do?


A "putt in the gas"??? Do you mean that your engine is "hesitating on acceleration"? If this is what you mean, it is usually caused by either a dirty throttle body or a faulty Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). I would try cleaning the throttle body first.

I'd hazard a guess that the torque converter disengages from "lock up" when you lift your foot. This would let the engine instantly idle down, and would produce no braking effect from a closed throttle.

Try driving it (at a lower speed) in direct, rather than overdrive, and see if the same thing occurs, or if you get the expected braking effect when you lift your foot off the throttle.

  • does the engine miss? bumps is a rythmic pattern?
  • an engine miss will appear to diminish at higher rpm due to centrifical force.
  • other possible problem broken or flat motor mount.
  • is the idle rough in reverse?
  • if not
  • open hood
  • start engine
  • Left foot on brake (hard)
  • start engine
  • watch engine as you select drive
  • still holding brake with left foot / throttle gas with right foot
  • does engine dramatically move?
  • if so replace motor mount on offending side
  • if not possible engine miss or transmission problems

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.

1987 Nissan Sentra Wont Start (died after going through a puddle)


the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valves like to stick on these cars, they get fouled up with carbon and if they get stuck open, the car will not want to idle well and even stall out. they are vacumn operated and can usually be cleaned with some carb cleaner and small picks. before you clean it, try moving the diaphram up with your fingers and see if it comes back down. this will tell you if its stuck. the EGR manifold port can also become clogged solid and requires removal for cleaning.
