    Same problem; runs better with MAF sensor unplugged, but same prob after replacing with new one. Runs fine when cold and when going down the road-just won't low idle. Any ideas?

You need to clean the mass air flow sensor wires. They get a coating of varnish on them and that leans out the fuel mixture. It is on the air cleaner tube and has 2 screws holding it in. remove the MAF sensor and clean it with carburator and a toothbrush vey gently. the 2 wires are gentle. no hard scrubbing. Reassemble. Engine will atke a few minutes to learn newly cleaned MAF. good luck.

Have 1999 nissan qust runs fine when started but if you drive very far. it starts chugging and running rough. doesnt seem to get hot. but doesnt run well at all.

First check fuel pressure with engine cold, and hot at engine side of fuel filter. There shouldn't be any difference. If you get a significant pressure drop after running engine until warmed up, replace fuel filter and check results again. If that still doesn't help your fuel pump might be on the blink. This is assuming your car is in good tune(plugs,wires).

I have a 99 nissan quest after it warms up 20 min or so, it dies and wont start for 20-30 minutes, then runs 15-20 min and does the same thing.

not sure about your vehicle but it sounds like a coil when they go bad they heat up and open so the engine will get no spark , it's a cheap try.

Plugs were shot in 1999 nissan quest ,running on 5 cyl,replaced plugs cap roter still running rough,could it be engine controll modual

I really doubt it. I wouldn't spend that much money just yet. They usually last longer then the vehicle. Sometimes they go out but you dont want to waste a few hundred bucks for nothing. Try this. Check your fuel filter and air filter. Make sure nothing is clogged in them. Check your vaccum hoses for leaks. A little leak can cause that. It could be leaking fuel injectors or just a bad connection somewhere. The only way to tell is to start checking these. If you have another question, please let me know. I am here to help you in anyway I can.

adjust the TPS, throttle position sensor.

First though, disconnect battery for 1/2 hour. Restart engine and drive for 15 miles while computer relearns changes you made. Will run rough for this period.
