PROBLEM: LACKING POWER, AND EXPERIENCING SLUGGISH ACCELERATION


Guessing here, might help to know the make/model/year/engine.
Sounds like you're running in "limp mode" because one of your sensors is either bad or simply not hooked up. Perhaps TPS (throttle position sensor) or MAF (Mass AirFlow)

I have a 98 Nissan Frontier. It wasn't running right so I unplugged the maf sensor and it ran better. I bought a new one from eBay. Replaced it and now it's running worse than before


    What Are the Symptoms of a Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor?
    • The engine stalls soon after starting.
    • The engine drags or hesitates when idle or under load.
    • The engine hesitates and jerks during acceleration.
    • The engine hiccups.
    • The engine displays unusually lean or rich idling.

Rav 4 1998 Toyota stalling when coming to a stop, turning or placed in park. Occasionally misses (jerks) when accelerating from a stop or slowing vehicle.


Did they clean the idle air control motor. I done a few. You have to use a pick or paper clip works and dig the carbon build up out of them, with using a cleaner.

Poor acceleration, but the engine is strong


your ECM/ computer may be shot. those model sentras had campaign, where the ECM box would be lined with foam to hold the computer tight, but the fumes from the glue that Nissan used to hold the foam down, would eat the computer internally and destroy it. Nissan had us pull those foams out and discard. if you still have the foams inthere, good chances are that the ECM is fried, causing issues. Question: did you use aftermarket air filter in the air box?? or Nissan filter?? Let me know. very important to use Nissan filter it this car.

When i accelerate there is hesitation and jerking? Once at a certain speed there is no jerking but if you slow down and then accelerate again it jerks/hesitates again.


It means there is a problem in the carburetor of your car . But if then so you still have to check the accelerator springs and pedal. For there are worn out or destroyed parts then replace them for good .About the carburetor.Prepare the equipment or tools to be used in servicing the carburetor .So that when carburetor will be repaired or serviced no parts will be damage or lost. Locate the carburetor. Disconnect the fuel lines , the accelerator cable and the magnetic jet from the carburetor.Dis -assemble the carburetor.Clean carburetor with carburetor cleaner.Don't forget to observe safety rules. If there are worn out parts or destroyed parts then replace them .But you the owner don't have time to do the job then go to a car shop mechanic and let them do the job.
