First check your battery! The electronics for the fuel system can be affected if the current isn't correct. You can also check the fuel control module....94 & 95 models are notorious for having problems with them. Check the fuel pressure regulator...the distributor....spark plug wires....ignition module....fuel pump. I hope this helps. Good luck!

My car is stalling when idling and sputtering when driving like it is losing power


Try some gas line anti freeze (methle hydrate) It will dissipate water which may have been at the bottom of the tank. If he put regular gas and you put super, add octane boost. and drive for half hour and it will clear.

Sputtering and stalling


Have the fuel pressure tested, running out of gas will destroy the fuel tank moumted fuel pump or cause it to run slow with the resulting loss of power.

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??

Idles irradictly when in drive saab 900s 1995


It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. A good way to check for a leak is to take a squirt bottle with water in it, and with the engine COLD and the engine at idle, spray some water around where the intake mainifold and the head meet. If the idle changes you found your leak, also spray any vacume hoses. Stay away from the alternater.
