If you washed the engine bay theres a chance you may have got water into the spark plugs or on the distrubutor, remove dizzy cap and remove water from the underside, sum crc products work well at this. usually after the engine gets hot it will evaporate the water away, I hope you don't have an exposed air filter, this could also be wet causing starvation. sum more info would be helpful

Check ignition coil, they are known to short circuit after a wash.
Try starting engine at night or in the dark and look around coil and leads for hi voltage sparks.

Oil gauge drops low at idle


Low oil pressure at idle can be caused by an engine with worn rod or main bearings due to (usually) high mileage . This however does not mean the engine is still not serviceable as long as the oil pressure is low only at idle. The pressure should at minimum get into the normal range at anything above idle speed.Not much oil pressure is really necessary at LOW speed. At low speed, as long as there is oil getting to the bearings, even at low pressure, you are OK. In a high mileage engine the oil pressure is often low at idle simply because the oil pump is turning slowly and cannot maintain higher pressure between the larger than normal crankshaft and bearing clearances. As speed increases the pump turns faster and supplies more oil and the pressure should go higher. Low pressure as long as it is only at idle is not a problem. However at higher speeds the pressure should be in the normal range. Such a worn engine can benefit from higher viscosity (thicker) oil such as 20W-50 in above freezing weather and 10W-40 in winter. That will increase idle pressure and the thicker oil film maintains a better film between the worn parts

Upon startup engine idles rough then speeds up and returns to normal idle .After a couple of minutes the volt light comes on then no power then a complete shut down.Starts back up for a while then shuts...


OK, the volt light means that the alternator is not charging the battery. It could mean the battery is shorted out, or the battery is bad or low on charge due to an alternator not charging.

Replace the Alternator and battery as indicated by standard voltage output tests under load.

The computer in the car will not operate the engine properly on low voltage.

Fixing the charging system, may resolve the rough idle (meaning that it may be trying to relearn after data was erased by low voltage of the battery), and the speed up.


Try the charging system first, and once that is repaired, reevaluate the engine driveability and speed and idle smoothness, after it relearns.

Good luck on this repair.

2000 maxima with 147,000 miles. the A/C compressor does not want to run when idling but will run at highway speeds


Your ac pulley may be worn so the engine needs extra boost and power to run it thats why when it is in optimal power (highway-- high engine power)as opposed to idle(low engine speed) it runs. You might need it replaced.

Water vapor in your distributor cap will cause those conditions, especially after engine washing. Remove and dry the distributor cap and it should run fine aftrewards.
