After changing the Alternator Belt on Oct.10,2009, my car 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE frequently stopped at redlight signals but I was able to restart immediately.My mechanic raised the idle running rpm but after running for about 40 miles the problem persisted.Last week he changed the sensor but that hasn't helped.He says that the computer does not indicate the problem and is not able to pinpiont where the actual defect lies.Could you please help in solving this as I am moving out of the country and trying to sell the car.Thanks.

Have you done a tune up? Tune up may be the only problem next would be fuel filter then fuel pump. With all the new additives in gas fuel filters don't last as long as they used to.

Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya! Begin by changing the fuel filter and the air filter. If that doesn't solve your problem take your Nissan to any autoparts store or shop that can put it on a scanner to see what other issues the car has. THanks for choosing fixya! Regards, Joe

2010 nissan rogue is slow accelerating when gas is pressed, VDC light comes on, what is causing this?


When VDC light is on, it means Vehicle Dynamic Control is engaged and it puts resistant on wheels to reduce slipping.
This is the reason to cause slow acceleration. If you have OBD reader, you may find out why VDC is on; otherwise, ask someone has experience on mechanic for consulting.
VDC issue needs to be resolved or you will consume more gas and wear the car faster.

Car running rough at random when accelerating and also idle drops suddenly when slowing down and often completely stalls out when I stop. Smells strongly of gasoline when it stalls/almost stalls but I


This could be a lot of things. one of the tests that you need to run is shift it into nuetral when you are stopping and see if it still drops RPM and wants to stall. This will eliminate or conclude that it is a transmission issue. If it is still doing this then it could be a vacuum leak or fuel delivery issue.

2002 Subaru Forester misses/runs poorly with slow acceleration when hot with a/c on especially after running 50-60mph on interstate. Problem is intermittant. Runs fine with excellent acceleration...


I have the same problem. But my check engine light comes on when this occurs. The car runs fine otherwise. The problem manifests when it's hot out and I've been driving for a while with the A/C on. When I stop somewhere (like the supermarket), shop, and get back in my car. It starts fine but when I put it in gear to go, it's extremely sluggish for a few seconds and the check engine light comes on. Then is runs fine but the check engine light remains on. The next day when I start it, the check engine light is not on. Also, I recently had the head gasket replaced. I took it back into the shop the first time the check engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said everything checks fine. He re-set the light saying to keep an eye on it and bring it back in if the check engine light comes back on. It ran fine for 1.5 weeks and now this problem has started to occur.

Did you find anything out dwbradway? I wish I had a solution for you but I just have the same kind of problem. Any help would be appreciated!

Problems accelerating


the engine tickover is too slow when the engine is cold its running on cold start, ie:choke,, after it warms up the engine slows down this is what is causing it to stall in gear,, get some one to hold the brakes hard on and with the engine running in gear ajust the tick over till its reving at 750 - 850 rpm the revs will go up a bit when its out of gear,, before you pick a gear to go into push the foot brake down to stop the car lurching,,,

Slow acceleration from stop and when driving (trying to pass)


I have the same car. So far no problems with the Transmision. I had the Trans oil change out every 60 K Sure sounds like you need to get the Transmision checked. Is the fault light on. I have invested ina fault code reader sure is worth it. 
Good luck.  Vilmos

Initially starts fine, runs fine, then stalls at the first stop.


This is a fuel pump issue. i would replace it and the lines as well.also, a minor tune up wouldn't hurt as well. wires plugs distributor cap points etc...
