Engine Performance problem
1996 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles
I created this problem. I replaced the valve cover gaskets which were leaking but once everything was back together. The car idle was screwed.
A bolt on the rear valve cover cracked when putting the car back together so I had my local mechanic drill it out for me. He mentioned I hadn't needed to take the throttle body off. Unsure if this is what started it.
Once I got everything back together the car started but the idle wasn't smooth in park. Once in drive the idle was obviously low. Sometimes when coasting (driving but not hitting gas) the car will just die. Doesn't chug or sputter, if just turns off.
Any ideas for me?
have the same problem?
