You'll have to figure
out if it is a fuel or ignition problem. Is
the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.
The problem you describe didn't mention whether you have an automatic shifting transmission or a standard transmission in the vehicle. If it is a standard transmission their could be a broken gear spline which would prevent it from moving properly internally. Have you had a transmission shop look at it yet? Now if it is a automatic transmission it could be a band problem with the band in the 3 rd gear range either locked up or slipping. Again, it is difficult to diagnose either w/o knowing really what is goin on inside the transmission. You have to have it removed and opened in order to examine exactly the mechanical parts. Is the transmission fluid full, the only way to check this is with the engine running and the car in park, or neutral. Talk with an AAMCO shop if you have one in your neighborhood.
Hi! Few things can cause the car to sputter. As a first of course of action I strongly suggest that you have your car scanned to know the fault and the fix. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!
Yes. Have him purchase a Haines or Chiltons Manual at Auto Zone or similar store. I have changed 2 alternators on my 95 Altima in my time and I am not an expert mechanic. Also check out:

Merely slipped it off the old alternator pulley and then slip the new alternator onto the old belt and then tightened/adjust the belt as needed when done. Good luck.
