Question about 2001 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Nissan Altima that sputters when it idles to the point that it sometimes stalls out. We just had it tuned up and no change. About 6 months ago we had the fuel system cleaned out and that worked for a little while but then went right back to the sputtering. Any ideas?

It is probably your electric fuel pump. Or it could be the fuel pickup filter inside the fuel tank, Either one is a pain to fix. When you say you had fuel system cleaned, was it done by a shop with a machine that cleans the fuel rail and injectors. Or did U pour some fuel system cleaner in the tank or throttle body? Also, was the throttle body cleaned when U had the fuel system cleaned? If not this could be a problem also. email me a allan.lueb@gmail.com

Car starts hard then idles roughly for 2-3min then stalls and dies


It sounds like some thing you have done if the fault started after the tune , did you check the gap on the new plugs, check the firing order as it may be messed up . 4 cylinder 1342 6 cylinder 153624 in direction of rotation.

'96 Nissan Altima runs great when cold, but once warm, rpms go haywire, sometimes it stalls


Stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc..) and have them do a FREE OBII scan (fault scan) That will show what faults computer has been experiencing. Another question.. When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires and ALL filters especially FUEL filter? A good tune up usually cures a multitude of stalling and runability issues.

have you checked the spark plug wires? try changing those. sometimes they can get a little crack in the insulation which can cause it not to get full spark to the spark plugs

I have a 97 nissan altima that has rough idle and stalls


If you cleaned the carb after you changed the plugs using a spray, the plugs will need to be cleaned again. The debris from the carb burns off on the plugs and can gum them up.

My 1992 Nissan Maxima is sputtering upon acceleration. It has 220,000 miles on it and it seems to mainly have this problem in first gear. And mostly happens shortly after starting the car. Ive done a basic...


92 max
I own a 92 max 370 kms runs good but one day just cuts out while doing about 30 km, I pull over i can start it no problem but when I touch the pedal to accelerate the car stalls out.

It got worse to the point of sputtering on the highway , sometimes i could keep it alive by working the pedal but others would slow down and stall out.

I have changed the fuel filter and plugs seemed to make it a bit better but still stalling. I ran it in my driveway for 10 mins on idle then it stalls out

Is this the fuel pump??

you have a intake gasket that's broken. take some carb cleaner in a spray can and as the car is at idle, spray the carb cleaner at the injectors and listen for change in engine idle. spray it especially by the air intake tube/#4 cylinder. it will get nice and smooth. very common problem on a altima your year. its not a job for someone, that doesn't really work on cars. the job per "alldata" pays 6 hours. it will take a lot more, if a novice is doing the job. so to sum it up, you have a intake gasket leak, where the intake bolts to the cylinder head.

check fuel pressure. check distributor, leaks oil internally onto the signal plate, could cause rough running and stalling. check intake gasket. spray carb claener at the injectors and listen for engine noise change. if it changes, than intake gasket is gone. very common problem. has the car been tuned up??has the base idle ever been adjusted?? checked?? if so, than check items above.
