Hi!!

Check

Air Filter
Fuel Filter
Vacuum Hoses for leaks, broken or loose fittings
IAC Sensor (remove sensor, clean housing and sensor, use a rag wet with carb. cleaner do not apply cleaner directly to the sensor or housing) to clean the housing use a flat screw driver and wrap the rag around it. Do not use excesive force, and make sure not to scratch the housing walls.
Check TPS make sure is not sticking, remove and clean using same procedure as for IAC sensor.

TPS - Trottle Position Sensor
IAC - Intake Air Control Selenoid

1 Check for vacuum leaks, 2 Check the EGR valve, on mine the large nut on the metal pipe had come loose. 3 Clean and re-gap (or replace) spark plugs seemed to help. Mine (2004) needed new EGR valve to fix.

P0300: SOMETIMES rough idle, shake a lot OR less power above 50mph then got this code


Spark plugs in your car are good for 100,000 miles. try changing fuel filter and add a can of B&G 44K fuel additive. This stuff is the best on the market and only available at dealerships. It conditions fuel pump and injectors, also absorbs water in fuel (methanol). Try this first, your car is too new for any other problems. this should help drivability and fuel mileage. If Nissan does not have B&G, I know Toyota does. Also stay with 91 octane fuel. Check oil and coolant often. do not risk overheating in traffic, watch your gauges......

No check engine light on until it stalls out. While driving around town and approaching stop sign/light, sometimes car will stall out. I also notice that my fuel gauge dips down about 1/4 tank and then...


You didn't say how much fuel is in the tank when this happens. Some of these old GM cars will starve for fuel if the tank is near empty and you are braking or stopping with the car facing downhill. It could be rust or scale in the fuel tank clogging the screen around the fuel pump inlet. Sometimes, putting cleaner in the tank of an older car will only cause more debris to loosen up from the inside of the tank and make the problem worse. If the problem gets worse, I would guess tht a new fuel pump/sloat assembly is in order. You may have to have the tank removed and cleaned or replacedd with a new one to prevent the problem from reocurring.

Car stalls


when cars idle super low this ussually mean that you fuel filter is clogged.........change the fuel filter.......and if that does not help.....check the air filter.......if dirty change it.......and if that still does not help......check the o2 sensor......and if that does not work......"when was the last time you had a tune up on your car"?

you might need new plugs...........also try runing a fuel injector cleaner....sometimes it is because the injec are dirty......
