I believe it is an air-flow problem. I have a 2001 Beetle that did the same thing & no mechanic could solve the problem until I finally succumbed and took it to the dealer. This was a free repair for me as it is a well known problem. Do not leave it unchecked as it will ruin your cat converter/exhaust system which is a costly repair.

I have a 1997 Nissan Kingcab SE 4x4 with a 2.4. Everytime it rains it wants to spit and sputter. What causes this to happen?


i would check the distributor cap for cracks, this can draw moisture when it rains, and cause a engine to do as you are saying, spit and sputter, and even cut out.

Check your spark plug wires, you may have a crack in one of the wires that is allowing moisture to enter, and water and electricity don't mix.

My 1992 Nissan Maxima is sputtering upon acceleration. It has 220,000 miles on it and it seems to mainly have this problem in first gear. And mostly happens shortly after starting the car. Ive done a basic...


92 max
I own a 92 max 370 kms runs good but one day just cuts out while doing about 30 km, I pull over i can start it no problem but when I touch the pedal to accelerate the car stalls out.

It got worse to the point of sputtering on the highway , sometimes i could keep it alive by working the pedal but others would slow down and stall out.

I have changed the fuel filter and plugs seemed to make it a bit better but still stalling. I ran it in my driveway for 10 mins on idle then it stalls out

Is this the fuel pump??
