Question about 1996 Nissan Altima
But when I give it gas, seems to be ok. I took it for a drive and around 55 or 60 it started to buck or hesitate on me...I checked air filter, gas filter, cleaned maf and throttle body, and took apart distributor. Spark plugs and wires are 9 months old. Someone told me to clean or replace PCV Valve, but getting conflicting info on its location. Theres nothing on the valve cover other than a hose with a wire brush in it to mass air intake. And the other location was on pass side of engine below intake mani. but I cant locate anything close to what i was told as a description to look for. I guess the question is whats next or what in your opinion could be the problem?
Sounds like you could have a vacuum leak in the intake manifold due to a faulty gasket, spray the gasket down with parts cleaner, csee if the idle smoothes out if it does you have a bad manifold gasket.
