I had a similar problem mine would hit a rev limiter at 3500 rpms. it would blow black sut out of the tail pipe. Ended up being mass air flow sensor/valorem sensor. almost 500.00 from nissan. fixed it though.

Car goes in reverse but won't go in drive fills like something sticking in rear


A/T tranny"drive"
are the brakes iced over.?? i can't know this. only you.

if not, ice, then tranny is sick
get help

do you have a dash tachometer? RPM?
this instrument tells you what is wrong,
1: Tacho RPM buzzes high bad tranny.
2: tacho rpm sticks at say 2000rpm not running free with right foot action that means the breaks are locked up with ice or hand brake is ON.

Engine acted like it was going to stall, then tachometer(rpm) and speedometer jumped up high, gas gauge dropped to empty level though there was half tank of gas acted like it wasn't getting gas pumped gas...


Ignition or fuel problem probably . When you turn the key to start does the engine spin ? Crank no start or nothing happens NO CRANK - NO START ?
If the engine spins an does not start an run you need to test to see what's missing Spark or fuel . Pull a spark plug wire off a spark plug an stick a screw driver in the end an hold it near ground (metal) and have someone try to start the vehicle ! Is there spark ? Spray starting fluid into the engine , does it start then ?
Videos on youtube showing how to do these tests

I have a 96 Nissan XE and it starts sputtering and spitting when it hits 2500 RPM. My Guy said he cant fix it because he doesnt have the right port plug for the obd 2.


@jgamble112, sinse it is a specific rpm, 2500, which is where the rev limiter is usually set to stop the engine when reving up, it sounds like the engine control module, or computer as it is commonly called, this is what controls the rev limitermine had smae problem, same rpm, and in gear too, its only supposed to work when in nuetral, but sometimes the computer doesnt recognize the vehicle has been shifted, hope this helps

My 99 cougar stick shift is acting up the Battery


If the alternater output drops when the rpm's increase
you may have a slipping belt. Stop at a parts store
autozone/napa/ or advance. They will put meter on it
for free. Hope this helps.
