Question about 2003 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Hi i have a nissan 350jm 2003, when i drive the car it takes off but after a few seconds it loses power as if im going from 255hp to 100hp, the car doesnt splutter of shake, the same happens in park or neutral, the first couple of revs you give it are sharp and powerful, then if you put ur foot down to rev again its rams up slowly?, just feels like a 3.5l turned into a 2.0l? i can hear the fuel pump working and removed it, it seems to be clean, no kinks in the fuel line aswell. auto electrician plugged in to computer and no resulting issues. Can anyone help me? the car still drives well. the mechanic couldnt find anything. thanks, mike

Did you check the throttle positioning sensor? This is an often easily overlooked solution that many mechanics don't think of immediately because its so simple I guess it is easily forgotten.

Nissan Sentra 2000 model. Thick White smoke coming out of exhaust

Is the car runnig little rough on cold start up in themorning for few seconds?? Because I have done quite a few headgaskets on QG18 Sentra aka 1.8 liter nissan sentra. here is the test. Fill up your overflow bottle to the full mark and check the coolant level in about 5 days.(drive it normally as if nothing is going on) If the level is down, your head gasket is gone. How about the check engine light , is it on?? post results.
