Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
Thought it was the catalyst converter that was blocked, but that wasn't it. it's a 3.o liter. If I try to drive it, when I put it in drive its ok until I touch the gas then it wants to choke up und wants to stall, but will run ok if I don't touch the gas.
Robert summed it pretty well. It could possibly be a clogged fuel filter.

Check the EGR valve. Your symptoms are commensurate with a failing EGR, but it could be something else just as easily. Check all your vacuum lines... there is a schematic diagram that shows the locations for each vacuum hose. Also check the air box and plenum assembly for cracks. You can't have any leaks in the vacuum system. The last two things to check are the fuel injectors and O2 sensor(s). The fuel injectors require specialist equipment to verify the spray pattern.. Bosch service centers have these. Most sensor malfunctions are recorded as faults on your vehicle's computer (called an ECM or ECU in technical jargon). You can buy an inexpensive fault code reader.... Aktions are easy to use. Follow the directions and use the chapter on Emission Controls in the Haynes Manual for your car to understand what they mean and how to repair them. You can always list another question or provide the fault codes for us to assist you with your car.
