Engine Performance problem
1991 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 149000 miles
I am a beginner and have a few questions.
I think that the throttle cable and transmission cable pressure is in correct on my car.
I have been looking for the proper way to adjust it on the net but there is nothing around.
I have the gas pedal cable tight but the trans cable a little lose the car is better than before but I still don't it is right.
Problem number two.
I have done a tune up on the car myself and only 2 things remain oxygen sensor replace and fuel filter
I tried to pull the fuel filter off but I could not with all my strength and I'm afraid to cut the fuel wires, also the cars gets bad MPG
There is no check engine light on but I've read that an aging o2 sensor can cause this.I've cleaned everything that can be cleaned and replaced
everything that can be replaced(standard tune up).
Problem number three
Sometimes my lights dim--I think it is because I have the radio and heat on--- correct me if I'm wrong the car starts up fine.
But all in all how to go about adjusting the throttle and trans cable under the hood and what to do about MPG and the stuck fuel filter(almost like
the rubber welded on the to the metal).
have the same problem?
