It sounds as if some moisture is inside the sparkplug boots that fit onto spark plugs.Remove them and dry out or use a water dispersant spray like wd40 on these and along the leads to distributor cap.This distributor cap may need to be removed also to check for moisture if it still runs foul.Once all dry the engine may take a few minutes for the plugs to clean up and run smooth again.I hope this helps you,if not get back to me with your findings.

    i changed the sparkplug wires and distributor cap and rotor

    There will have to be a moisture related fault somewhere,have you got the plug leads back on in the correct order,if this is out it will do as you described.I will post the layout and sequence shortly,but is usually 1-4-3-2 anti clockwise.The 1 is usually marked on the cap.#1 cylinder is the one closest to the cambelt cover.

Why want my 2002 Nissan Altima want rev over 2500 RMP?


It sounds like you have a problem with the AWU. Accelerator Working Unit, a fancy term for the gas petal. If it is not getting the proper voltage to the ECM it will default to a RPM like you are geting, 2000-2500 rpm. Find one from a junkyard and try it out. I would not shake anything that will just cause other issues.

Had transmission rebuilt on my 2003 honda odyssey car drove back to naples fl from miami its the next day and the car wont start hit gas and nothing


If it isnt turning over you may just have a bad battery connection or ground.They may have taken your starter out when they rebuilt the trans and maybe a wire is loose or came off.

Sounds like maybe a motor mount may have broken,if you
open the hood and put the car in drive ,then neutral then reverse
the engine should only "rock" about an inch or so,if it really jumps
that is the problem.

Change all the filters (fuel and air). check and see if all your spark plugs are firing or just change them. if it is fuel injected make sure your injectors are working. Hope something there helps get it running good.
