NISSAN ALTIMA CHECK ENGINE LIGHT PROBLEM

2002 Nissan Altima • 156 miles

Altima 2002 will not rev higher than 1000 rpm and will not drive faster than 5 mph. No noise or anything preceded this happening. Car was operating normally then after light I stepped on accelerator and the car had no power. It only revved to about 1000 rpms, and drove at 5 mph. If I talk for if accelerator the car idles fine. If I step on gas it tends to 1500 that's all she does. If I step on and off accelerator it will repeat the same as above. Any thoughts? Tranny or throttle Boby issues? Thanks.

It sounds like a sensor issue. Is the check engine light on? It could be a throttle position sensor. If the check engine light is on, have the computer scanned to identify trouble codes. Most parts stores will do it for free.

Did you ever get this fixed?
