Where the throttle cable meets the throttle body is a tiny set screw for idle adjustment. sometimes it gets gunked up. remove set screw and using a emory cloth sand edge of set screw. remember to mark where the set screw is before removing

My 2000 Nissan Pathfinder runs good when first starting up but as it warms up it begins to sputter when accelerating and the rpms jump, but does't get good acceleration. I've replaced the fuel...

Change your plugs and run a couple of bottles of injector cleaner through it. Sounds like you have some carbon buildup. Also check the catalytic converter for excessive back pressure. i hope this helps.

I have a 99 nissan pathfinder that won't start, it has spark and fuel. I even sprayed starting fluid and still won't start, replaced the distributor, same problem. does the crank sensor has to do...

well it takes four things for an engine to start,air, fuel ,ignition and proper timing of ignition and valvetrain . if you have spark then i presume the cams are turning , fuel injection is control by the ecm based on crank and cam inputs ( if applicable been awhile since seen a 99 nissan )
if you have spark then can assume the ecm is getting a crank sensor pulse , that leaves valve timing . any codes? check light on ?
did it die suddenly or just not start one day ? i would be app to check timing belt first make sure its lined up correctly . even if fuel injs were inop it should still start on staring fluid indicating a fuel problem, i would do a compression check also if the belt jumped it may have bent some valves if its interference engine but i dont remember, and make sure its getting air through the air intake

How do i solve a sticking accelerator on my 99 nissan pathfinder?

It will have to be lubed, but first find out what is sticking. Disconnect the cable from the pedal and work the pedal if it is free go under the hood and disconnect the other end work the throttle is it free. If the throttle and pedal are free the cable is binding or going bad. The best thing to do is replace the cable.

Squeaking at rear of s.u.v

Well you couldn't be more vague,but here's a stab. You need to remove the rear sway bar & lube the bushings with anti-sieze & re-install. That's my best guess based on like 3 words to describe the problem.

Unintended acceleration when the brakes are applied 2001 pathfinder.

Hello and my name is john and i will be helping you to day.


Occasionally your 2001 pathfinder will accelerate when the brakes are applied. And there is a very loud squealing of the tires with the lunching of the car.


Your pathfinder has a TPS sensor which is your throttle position sensor if this sensor is stuck or bad it will send a MSG to your computer saying that it's not getting enough fuel so it will compensate and cause your engine to rev unusually hi and causing your tire's to chirp also your apm's should jump while doing that you should se a big difference in your gas mileage as well.
