I have a 2002 Nissan Altima with the 3.5L engine. It has 75,000 miles. Yesterday it wouldn't start because the battery was dead. I tried charging it but it didn't help. I replaced the battery but now the car will not accelerate when you push on the gas pedal. It idles perfectly and does not throw any error codes when check by an OBDII code reader. If you accelerate within one second after it starts it will surge, idle, surge, idle and then settle into idle. After that nothing happens when you push the accelerator. Does anyone know what is wrong? Is this something I can repair or reset on the car myself? Thanks for your help.
P.S. I may have posted this already. If so, I apologize for double posting it. I donated you your forum before I submitted it and am not sure if it posted. Thanks once again.
