Question about 1985 Nissan Pulsar
Car idles but as soon as you accelerate it jolts and loses power and won't pass 2000 rpm. I've changed leads, distributor cap, put in fuel additive, cleaned the injectors. any suggestions will be most welcome.
My sons 1985 300zx non turbo did this. We were going to have his stereo system installed for Christmas when it started. He was so disappointed. I have thrown parts at my own vehicles but refused to do it on his. It would lunge at 2000 RPM and feel like the transmission was about to come out of it.
We discovered that three hose clamps were not tightened on top of the engine...may have been the air intake hoses but it fixed his car immediately. We first replaced a throttle sensor that changed nothing. A seasoned machanic could't even solve it.
