I think it would be a good idea to check your fuel filter....The most likely place for it to be mounted is in the engine compartment, or if not there it'll be underneath, close to the tank.....Regards Johngee

Acceleration problem


Could be a clogged fuel filter, could also be a slight crack in the throttle body gasket. get a spray bottle with water in it, set it to mist, while the vehicle idles, spray around the base of the throttle body, if it bogs down replace the throttle body gasket. Just curious, was it doing it before you changed the plugs and wires? If not make sure you have the firing order correct.

My nissan pathfinder ran out of gas now it wont start


Try looking for the fuel pump reset switch, which may be towards the back of the vehicle hidden behind a panel.

1995 Nissan pathfinder sputtering and chugging when on gas idled fine


Based on what you have stated the vehicle idles fine and when you are giving it some gas it starts to "sputter and chug". This would leave me to believe that you are not getting enough gas to the engine when it is under a load and that can be a few things, so lets start with the simplest and that would be the fuel filter, which is located under the hood on the left hand side of the engine. It is fairly large and very easy to change and it doesn't cost a lot, around 10 bucks. ( I know this as I own the same year and make of vehicle and have replaced my fuel filter due to the same thing) If for some reason that does not work, I would then buy a can of Seafoam for engines/fuel (it can be ran in either) and that will cure any clogged injectors that you may have. The last thing that I would do is test the fuel pump to see if it is supplying enough fuel to the engine. I have 232,000 on my 95 Pathfinder and the fuel pump is working just fine and is the least likely of these that will go out. My money is on the filter. Best of luck to you and let me know how it works out.

I have a 1988 Nissan Pathfinder that starts up just fine but it sputters when you press the gas to get it moving. Once you get it moving it runs just fine. Anyone that can tell me how to fix this problem I...


Sounds like the MAF sensor is acting up. Try spraying MAF sensor cleaner in it as per the directions and see if it helps. Another thing you can do is tap on the top of the MAF sensor and see if there's any change with the engine. If the engine changes the way it runs as you tap on it, replace it. Check the condition of the air filter and get some throttle body cleaner and clean the throttle body out. You'll probably find alot of carbon come out of the throttle body.

My 2001 Nissan Xterra sputtered when accelerating and then would go above 20 miles per hr. i got off the gas and it evened out then i gave it gas again and it accelerated normally. Then about 10 minutes...


Sounds like you have water in the gas. Are you in cold country? The whole country is right now. Anyway, if that is the problem, It could have easily come from the gas station, there tanks condensate too, Get a can of dry gas. If that is not it, get the code checker on there and see what it says, could be an o2 sensor, something in the air horn sensor. a bunch of things most people don't even know exist. hope this helps.

Sputters then dies


Most likely a lack of fuel, check the fuel filter first.
