Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

Open Question

The slip light keeps coming on while I drive and then goes off temporarily. Also it trembles sometimes when I am in first gear when I step on the gas or the break, but once it goes into second it is fine. Also when I turn my car on the first time of the day it does not want to accelarate at all. If I press the gas at all it starts trembeling. Once I come to a complete stop it's fine though and drives great. I thought it might be the air filter but I changed that, and it stopped for a while, but now it's back. I don't know if all these problems are related or not.

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Maxima Transmission Issue

Electronic throttle assembly failure, which has throttle position sensor built into it, that is a sensor for the transmission and tells the computer where the throttle is to adjust/shift if needed. I would look into the throttle assembly.

SOURCE: my 1996 sentra trembles when is on stop the motor

simple test to know if the catalytic converter is clogged. Only a clogged cat could cause this kind of issue,, so as you try to go faster the problem would get worse because the presuure would have no way out. So to test a clogged cat you unplug the oxygen sensor and put in a pressure gauge. Ask the mechanic if he did this and if the pressure was well above 3psi. For you to have issues right off the line the pressure would have to be around 15 to 30 psi as soon as he reved up the motor. Or if you unplug the 02 sensor from the exhaust and drive the car and still have the same problem then the cat is not the cause. By creating a hole before the catalytic converter this allows the pressure out and if the cat was clogged the car should run better.
Personally I suspect you need spark plugs, or spark plug wires, or possibly a coil, or you may even have a clogged injector. Your discription of the symptom sounds like an ignition issue. If it only stumbles on accel but runs smooth at higer cruising speeds I would suspect possble a vacuum leak at the intake gasket or possible a clogged injector.

My point here is before you replace a catalytiic for a drivability issue only, you have to have excessive backpressure to cuase a drivability concern. Even if a catalytic was old and worn out and did not clean up any pollutants, which is its main purpose, the car would still drive just fine. It would just polute.

How to replace gas cap

Step 1 - Determine Your Type of Gas Cap Before acquiring a new one, think about whether you need a gas cap that locks to prevent a gas thief from stealing your gas. But keep in mind, if you put one of these caps on your car, your spouse or children who put gas in your car will need the gas cap key.
Step 2 - Remove the Cap Retention Ring When you actually replace your gas cap, you may need to remove a retention ring that keeps the cap attached to your car. If you do, you can remove it simply by using a pair of needle-nose pliers. Just slip one tip of those pliers under the ring edge; then close the pliers and pull the ring off the old cap and slip it over the new cap.
Step 3 - Check the Warning Sensor Light Your car may have a sensor light that will illuminate when you change your cap. If so, drive your car a few miles to see if the light goes off. If it doesn't, see your repair mechanic to fix the problem
