This is generally a condition of a mis-fire, most likely in the ignition system. You may want to look in to changing your plug wires and plugs. (Also your cap and rotor if it has them and is not a Distributorless Ignition System.)

If in doubt, you may want to take your vehicle to a shop where they can perform an engine diagnostics test on it. But if these are the original ignition parts on your Xterra, it's time for a tune-up anyway. You'll thank yourself for the amount of fuel you'll save, too! :)

I hope this helps and please let me know if I can be of further assistance. :)

SOURCE: my automatic car acts like it is going to stall

Definitely sounds like a fuel problem. I'd change fuel filter and check fuel pump. If pump is running it could still be partially clogged. Try a fuel rail pressure test with a knowledgeable mechanic.

I have 2006 chevy equinov 3.4l awd.When i push on the gas it will run fine for about half a mile then it starts sputtering and sounds like backfireing and jerking and stalls out.


What is year--make--model?
How long since a tune-up?
If you think it is fuel issue, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. There are some other tests you could try, but, too much liability, I can't be responsible for your safety.

First question is always - is the check engine light on ?
Could be ignition or fuel problems such as spark plugs or coils, low fuel pressure or a failing sensor.
