I have a 2000 Olds intrigue it set up for about 6 years. Now it will start and run strong but struggles to drive. I have changed plugs, fuel filter, checked map sensor did coolant change,...

I don't understand runs strong, but struggles to drive? Do you mean it revs easily in nuetral or park but is sluggish accellerating in drive or in gear? Try putting air in all the tires. Also, make sure the brakes aren't seized. Jack up the car and see if the wheels spin freely to check if the brakes are engauged.

Hope it helps. Good luck.

This sound like a fuel pump problem to me. I had the same problem. It would idle and rev fine but as soon as in gear or hav load to pull it will just die or struggle to stay alive. Done a fuel pump change and problem solved.

My 2002 maxima struggles coming out of first gear could this be the fluid?

The first thing to do here is have the fluid and the filter changed if it has never been done, if that fails to correct the problem then yes it is time likely for a rebuild.

How much should i rev be4 i need to change gear

You could say, as a rough estimate, 2500-3000 RPM is probably the most you should rev the engine in a 323.
