If you pressed the gas pedal when the car is not moving (on neutral or park) and the engine is running fine and only rough (such as sudden loss of power and jerks) while you're driving, it is your fuel filter thats clogged up.

Check for fuel and if getting fuel check for spark as it is a problem that you will have to run down disconnect your fuel supply from engine and crank if fuel pumps out then its most likely spark then you must track it down are you getting spark at plugs if not then check your cap and rotor if so check your wires it is in there somewhere I cannot give you direct answer without looking at the car.

No spark on 2002 sentra se-r replaced crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor.


heres a list, ignition components damp or damaged, worn or faulty spark plugs, broken...loose....or disconnectedwiring in starting circuit, loose distributor changing ignition timing, ignition coil loose...faulty or disconnected wires. its good your cam & crank sensors were changed, but no spark indicates coil packs not able to get spark to plugs, but spark plugs may be fouled, replace them. replace distributor cap & rotor. check fuses, there's one for the ignition switch, check it. try all this see how it does,, also, if you haven't replaced both the AIR & FUEL FILTERS , DO SO !!!!!!!! just for thought, my daughter has a sentra gxe,2002, it started losing power on the highway, we had to have nissan replace it, $900 , you may have to deal with this, sell the car ! when you get it running, if you want. although , after we did repairs, tune-up, timing belt (not chain), etc., it runs like a top, she loves it ! good car if you ask me, just keep filters new, brakes good, it will go forever !

What are all of the parts needed for a tuneup for my 95 quests


Spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and distributor rotor. If you replace all of these you would be doing what is called a major tune-up.

A regular tune-up would be just replacing the spark plugs.

You can check the integrity of the plug wires and distributor cap by spraying them with water while the engine is running. If the engine runs ruff, stall, or you see spark arcing from either the wires or the distributor cap than they will need to be replaced.

The distributor rotor always gets replaced when you replace the distributor cap.

You can also spray the coil with soapy water to see if it is leaking as well.

What parts would i need for tuning up my sentra 04 (specific)


Your car has a coil on plug ignition system. So, you would replace the spark plugs, air filter, cabin air filter and PCV Valve. There are no spark plug wires, distributor cap or rotor and the fuel filter is in the tank, not requiring replacement for the life of the vehicle.
