Unfortunately this could be a trial and error problem. Could be computer module, plugs, distributors, wires fuel pump, fuel injectors, leak in intake manifold.

I got it on a scanner it pulled up egr mass air flow miss fire what could it b dont have a lot of money and need the car for work

The defect is basically this - the Mass Air Flow meter (the one that measures how much air gets inside the engine) gives bad data so the air/fuel mixture is not in the correct proportion so it doesn't light up. This is detected as a misfire.
All you need to do is to replace the MAF - you can get one cheaply from a breakers yard. And for a few $ more they will also fit it to your car. In all it will cost you about $125.

I own a 2003 Nissan Altima SE 3.5L. Recently, my car sounds like it is stuck in 2nd gear. The RPM's do not run high but the car sounds like it is racing in second gear. This is an automatic. Help?!

If your service engine soon light is on, go to autozone and have the code pulled up. Sounds like you are in limp mode (safe mode). I suspect it is your mass airflow sensor. Its easy to replace but expensive. I recommend getting one from a junk yard and installing it yourself. if you dont have any mechanical experience dont worry. As soon as you see one it will be obvious you dont need experience. It is in the middle of the big tube that connects your air filter to the throttle body. All you need is a screw driver and disconnect one electrical connector. Again, not worth buying new...they cost over $350 new but only $60 at junk yard.

If you want a quicker way to check, dissconnect the big tube from the intake manifold, in essance letting air run directly to the throttle body without going thru the air filter or mass airflow sensor. If the car runs fine with it dissconnected, its the mass airflow sensor. Buy some mass airflow sensor cleaner at an auto store (its specifically made and named mass airflow sensor cleaner). Try to clean it first...Dont touch anything inside with your finger tho.

Sorry if Im sounding like a school teacher but Im not sure of your mechanical knowledge or ability.

If not none of this works , you will have to pull up the code.

My car dies out constantly..usually when i slow down or come to a stop..i have replaced the alt. The fuel filter and back o2 sensor..i have tried gas treatments..i am stumped as to what the prob could...

I had the same problem with my 95 nissan maxima. The Mass Air Flow Sensor went out. It is located on the left side of the air filter housing and it has a pink sticker on the side of it. Try removing it and cleaning it with some Mass Air Flow solution and if that doesnt work then you might have to replace it for about $250 but most autoparts stores have to order this part and if you dont get it fixed fast enough it will cost you a starter as well.

Emmisions control light is on in my car dunno what it is and how much it will cost to get fixed my car runs good in park but when i put it in drive it cughs splatters and stops running

Could be 3 things

1 EGR valve """The EGR valve helps your car more efficiently and completely burn fuel by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn of the fuel which decreases you car's noxious emissions by prohibiting the formation of some harmful gases.""""

2 The lambda sensor needs replacing although, this does not normally cause the car to splutter.

3 The air mass sensor or air mass meter might be oplaying up, this is located on your air box you can clean them first to see if that fix's it. also check all your air pipes are not split or leaking air.

Air mass meters are also commonly referred to as air flow meters. They measure the mass of the air flowing into the engine. The air mass information is necessary to calculate and deliver the right amount of fuel to the engine, the sensor is the wired part of the system connected to the air mass meter.

My vw beetle dies after 10 minutes why!!!!!!!

A lot of things could cause it. The codes need to be pulled first. Most likely the MASS AIR FLOW METER is at fault, but without the codes it's just a guess.

2002 mits. lancer shakes and almost dies when stopped.

it could be that your air mass meter is going bad, or that you have a vacuum leak. check your air filter how dirty it is.
if it's too old or dirty replace it because it will kill your air mass meter and will cost you 10 + times more.
