Question about 2003 Nissan Pathfinder
When I accelerate the engine goes up to about 4000 RPMs but does not speed up like it should at that RPM level. I have tried different things like taking the OD off...but that really makes no difference. It is acting like it is not firing on all cylinders. Or maybe a plug or two is bad? Any help would be great.
2003 Nissan Pathfinder SE
Last oil change was 4 months ago
I have had same problem I took off the gas cap and then put it back on and it seemed to fix the problem.

I recently experienced the same scenario. No matter how much gas I gave it, I could not get the speed past 70 mph and engine was at 4000 rpms. At the first opportunity we stopped about 30 miles later, no gas stations on the highway. Oil was ok, added fuel injector cleaner, and filled the tank. Almost immediately we were at 70 mph and the 3000 rpms.
Our Pathfinder has 110k miles and the original owner. In the past noticed similar experiences going up hills.
Where do you live? We’re in CA. Wondering if a recall is in sight!
