Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima
My Nissan takes some time ( About 20 seconds ) to build up speed. It accelerates very gradually. How can i make it more sensitive to the accelerator. I want it to be sharp.
Try changing the spark plugs and spark plug wires and change the fuel filter if it hasn't been changed in a while.
