Try cleaning the throttle body.Check the air-gap for the pick-up coil inside the distributor assembly(use a brass feeler gauge)
Check valve clearances if needed(possible tight intake valve adj.)
Check base timing(follow instr. via under hood label)
Hope this helps.

If you have check engine light, it could be Accelerator position sensor 1, apc 2, tps1, tps,2. If you dont have MIL could be Air flow meter. Also there is actually 3 small filters in the gdi pump not 2.

I have a 2003 nissan almera can i use an air flow meter from a 2005 model

Well, in a word, maybe!
I am writing too you from the U.S.A., and it appears wee do not import that model here.
Therefore, I could not look up that part.
However, I did look up the air flow meter for American imports, and I found "it looks like you might be able to."
We use "e-bay motors" for used parts.
If you will type that in, check the "Nissan air flow meters" there, and see what you think.
Be blessed.

Air flow meter

First of all, I am not convinced the air mass sensor is defective. I am not experienced with that particular car, but with Bosch injection in general, and I believe you should be reading ohms in a dead system, not volts in a live system. I believe the resistance should vary with air flow, or there should be pulses with movement of a flap.

But yes, if the one you have used to work, then it is probably fine. Getting a newer one is likely to be backward compatible, as long as the harness is the same. It is only getting an older one that is risky.

Idle and Power Where is the fuel filter?

Fuel filter is inside the gas tank and its built into the fuel pump housing. You need to remove the back seat and get into the tank via access hole under the seat. Than you need to "split" the fuel pump assembly open and get the filter out. Reverse procedure to assemble. Those filters are rated for 105k miles. My 00 Maxima has 167K on it and it runs just fine with the original. As far as the air flow meter , its a pretty common part that fails and that's why 00 Max air flow meter costs only $100 and all others $500 or more. If you replace an air flow meter, make sure that you use a "NISSAN" air filter or YOU WILL BE replacing the air flow meter AGAIN. Also with the new air flow meter the cars ECM/Computer needs to be reprogrammed. As far as plenum gaskets leaking?? unless someone had it apart and didnt put it back together the right way, its "VERY UNLIKELY" for those gaskets to be bad. Totally bullet proof.

2003 chevy silverado runs rich with black smut in tail pipes!

You have upset the air flow meter You need to replace the air box lid.the flow of air past the airflow meter must be comsistant and surge free.the factory match the flow of air to the afm and they are like siamese twins,they are a matched pair.If you return the air box and rest of air intake to factory parts your problem will go away.Im sure these problems began to appear when you started changing parts and cutting holes.Good luck

Q45 airflow meter wiring.

That's not going to work. You can't install a air flow meter into a Pulsar from a Q45. Totally different animals. Air flow meters are car specific. I don't think its gonna work, but good luck with that.
