This could be many things. First, start with a tune up (plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter). Another possiblity could be your fuel injectors or bad gasoline. You could try adding octane boost and fuel injector cleaner to your gas. If all else fail it's possible it could be your coil or a malfunctioning sensor.

All would be a good fix, but i am having the same problem. I recently replaced plugs, plug wires, fuel filter and air filter. The problem turned out to be a dirty mass air flow sensor. A can of cleaner for $7.00 and you will be on your way!!!!!

engine miss caused by many things,weak ignition from bad ignition coil, ignition timing off if you have high mileage engine low compression from worn burned valves.could have something minor like stopped up air filter, clogged dirty fuel injectors, through the years i have seen many things cause engine to miss.

Truck starts fine and idles ok. spits and sputters at 2000 to 2500 rpms and will not rev over 2500 rpms. i've already replaced the MAF sensor.


CLOGGED FUEL FILTER OR CLOGGED FUEL INJECTORS.WILL CAUSE SPUTTERING AND MISFIRE.LEAKING EGR VALVE WILL CAUSE ROUGH IDLING SPUTTERING.

My 2000 Nissan Frontier has sputtering problems and the tac goes crazy. changed the fuel pump, sending unit, spark plugs, cap & rotor. what could be wrong?


your tach is run by the engine computer, possible cause. also by the crankshaft position sensor, most likely cause, I would start there. some sensors will run within perimeters and be bad enough to cause a lot of problems

Sounds like the fuel relay has a poor connection. They corrode over time. Was the subject of a recall a few years ago, and may simply need to be replaced.
