I HAVE A 2003 NISSAN ALTIMA. I NOTICED LATELY THAT WHEN I DRIVING MY CAR JERKS. YESTERDAY, WHEN I WAS AT THE RED LIGHT, IT SUDDENLY CUT OFF. HOWEVER, IT STARTED UP WITH NO HESITATION. BUT, WHEN I PRESSED THE GAS PEDAL IT HESITATE A LITTLE BEFORE IT TOOK OFF AND THEN SOON AAFTER THAT AT ANOTHER LIGHT IT SHUT OFF AGAIN. I NOTICED IT DIDN'T STRAT HAPPENING UNTIL I START USING MARATHON GAS. I STARTED USING CHEVRON AND I PUT A GAS TREAMENT CLEANER AND A FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER IN MY TANK. BUT THE PROBLEM STILL OCCURS AFTER A WEEK OF DRIVING THE CAR. PLEASE HEP WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW. : Cry: [b]
I am not sure if is the same problem, but I got the same simptoms, I found oil in the distributor. I cleaned and it runs fine now. I am trying to find the oil ring to replaice it but haven't found it yet.
