Go to Advance Auto have them run the check engine codes on the OBD and they will be able to narrow it down better for you. They should do it for free. My best guess is a Mass Airflow Sensor.

If there are more than 75,000 miles on the vehicle then this is most likely your best bet. If that does not fix the problem it could be actual fuel injector failure.

I have a 1998 Chevy K1500 with a 350 and it runs rough from time to time and has a mis fire on #6


Looks like you covered just about everything outside the engine.
Since it has 225k on the engine, its possible the valves are carboned up or burned to where one of the intake valves fail to close some times.
You might try a compression test or use a vac gauge when it is running rough. If the problem was not happening before you changed the plugs, you could have bought some defective ones.

You might want to look at that injector for that cylinder.I worked on a GMC Jimmy that did the same thing and I also changed all the sensors come to find out that my injectors and the spider assembly needed to be changed.

Where are the spark plugs located?


i would suggest that you change all of the plugs. if i remember correctly cyl # 3 is the middle one in the front.if not its the middle one in the back (sorry its been a while since ive worked on a maxima)

2005 honda accord, rough idle and malfunction light on. Problem with idle will clear but light stays on. Car has 147,000 miles. I went to clean off the engine and the problem started. Car will start...


I would take it to a local Auto Zone, or Advance Auto, they can run it through the diagnostic computer and see what codes are tripping, most likely it's going to be for a cylinder mis-fire, i would try making sure all the plugs are good, and check and see if all the plug wires are secured tightly.

No check engine light on runs rough while in gear


Plug Mis-firing (firing-but not adequately) no light and no fire.
Causes: Spark plug bad, spark plug wire leaking.
If you can pull the spark plugs - and you find that one of them is wet or very dirty - compared to the others....the you have the wire/plug source identified.

2000 Nissan Sentra rough idle


a rough idle/high idle is indicative of a malfunctioning TPS(throttle position sensor) this is located on the throttle body ,is attached with (2) screws/bolts to the throttle body housing right off the butterfly shaft. it has either 2 wire or 4 wire plug. the replacement part can be purchased at locale auto parts store. I would also agree that a full service and tuneup be done. this will help with performance and will increase the fuel efficiency. please rate this...thanks
