In the process of servicing they might have skipped checking the fuel pump and the nozzle that supplies gasoline. If this contains some dirt then it would not supply needed gasoline for the machine to work well. This could also be caused by an electrical fault from the plugs or electrical coil. Unless you have the technical know how i would ecommend you send it back to the repair shop. But if you could send specific details of make and model i could give you detailed steps to attempt fixing the machine. Hope this is helpful?

    Hello there yes i did... this indicates there is some dirt in the ran well for about 6 minutes cos the dirt in the system has settled down but once you start running it the dirt comes up again and disrupts the system. Try this little trick leave the machine idle for about 24 hours take out the fuel tank empty the fuel into a gallon, wash the tank and put in fresh fuel and run the system..let me know what happens after that. Hoping to hear something positive.

    2001 Nissan start jerking on hway, died, putt putted home. Now starts dies out and backfires.

    Make sure timing belt ( if equipped has not jumped/skipped teeth ). If ok suspect system running too lean ( not enough fuel ). You need to check for proper fuel pressure. Possible restricted fuel filter or defective fuel pump. Also there are a few sensors the vehicle relies on for fuel delivery that may have to be tested as well.

    My timing belt and water pump for Honda Accord 1990 was replaced and used the car for 2- 3 weeks. After driving about 15 minutes, entering the freeway, my car slowed down but the engine still running....

    If you have never changed that distributor on your 1990 Accord, I would suspect it. Check for spark while cranking. The sensors inside the distributor would usually heat up, after 15-20 minutes of running, and would then die out, until the car is cooled off for a while. Look into that distributor.
