1995 Nissan Altima, 155000 miles
Hi, I’ve been having this problem over the last few months (winter!). Shortly after starting the car in the morning, it starts to hesitate when I accelerate. The strange thing, to me at least, is that the problem occurs the most when I’m taking a turn (it happens very rarely when I’m driving straight).
The problem goes away after driving for about 10-15 minutes. And then it doesn’t happen again until the next morning. So I figured that the car just needed to warm up properly. However, even with letting the car warm up completely to its usual engine temperature I get this problem.
Is it just an issue of letting the car warm up or is there something that I need to be checking?
From various posts on the forums and other websites, I guessing that I have to be checking the MAF, the spark plugs and then possibly the engine codes. I would greatly appreciate some direction on this problem.
Thanks in advance for any advice. By the way, great site!
