WILL NOT ACCELERATE

2001 Nissan Sentra

Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Nissan Sentra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles

my car starts good but when you press accelerator engine will cut out at around 2300 rpms. I changed the mass air flow sensor, but no improvement was noticed. You can get car to accelerate up to sixty or so but it takes quite a long time. I also checked exhaust and found no problems. It acts like there is an acceleration limiter set to kick in at 2300 RPMs. Any ideas you have would be greatly appreciated.

Hi jwhitehead1303,

Is the Check Engine Light indicating?
Have you tried to retrieve for trouble codes?
Was any repairs carried out prior to this occurring?
Was tha MAF replaced new or used?

The code indicated Mass Air Flow sensor issue. I replaced with a new sensor, but still show check engine code.

I am still getting the mass air flow sensor problem code. Is it possible to reset the ECU / ECM my self?

A scanner is the best way to reset the code.

Go to Autozone for a free scan and they can reset the codes for you.

I need to know the exact trouble code.
