Why does it continue to spit and sputter going uphill?


Spit and sputter can happen because of not enough fuel or air. last thing to check for fuel is the fuel pressure regulator. On the air side would be the the air filter(filthy) or catalytic converters(clogged). on the mechanical side, Could be bad rings, burnt valves. Compression test would find this.

My nissan armada is stalling and spitting and sputtering


1) spark plugs
2) Ignition coils
3) Low fuel pressure, bad Fuel filter (it's inside fuel tank with Fuel pump)
4) Low Fuel pressure, damaged fuel pump (inside fuel pump)
5) check for Fuel Pump Relay on PDMI. There are several issues with that relay. You can swap with fog light relay (its located also on PDMI) to check for damage.

Will idle but when ingage clutch and give it gas it spits and sputters and dies?


Sounds like coil packs are shot! Suggest replace and it should run great. The coil pack it what sets the fuel injectors to perform at peak proficiency on post 1990s cars because they did away with the distributor & rotor (use to be able to just turn distributor to rev it up or down "my wife use to be able to adjust the old ones".)

Check your fuel filter again. Dirt from the tank could have clogged it again.

Car started with sputtering, then started stalling when stopped, and now we can't even get it to turn on


Check you fuel pressure sounds like you might have a worn out pump.Also listen for the fuel pump when you turn the ignition switch to the on position you should here it for 2 seconds.If you don't here it then more than likely your pump is faulty.
