Question about 2002 Nissan Altima
I have a 2002 Nissan Altama 2.5 S. When I start it with out giving it gas it will stall. If I give it a little gas it will start with no problem it will idle a little ruff a first. if I let it run for a little and give it a little gas it will be fine after a while. I took it to a couple of mechanics and hooked it up to a computer and no codes should up. what could it be.
Sounds to me like you need a new head gasket. top off your coolant overflow bottle. run vehicle as if nothing was happening and in few days check level of coolant in the bottle. OR you can check the cylinders for coolant intrussion by removing all 4 spark plugs in the morning after you use the car the day before. You will most likely find coolant down there. (check to see if the pistons are nice and clean on top / washed by the coolant) I have done a few and have seen a few beeing replaced for the same symptom. RUNS ROUGH FOR FEW SECONDS AFTER START UP. Thats the coolant in cylinder washing the plug down, resulting in misfire until the coolant burnes of inside the cylinder, that's when the car will run OK. Let me know what you find.

Your coolant temp. sensor may be on it's way out so it won't set a code right away.Try changeing it and see.It shouldn't be expensive
