I have a 99 Nissan Maxima GLE. It has about 80,000 miles on it. The problem is that while idle it feels as if the engine is dropping. It also sometimes does it while I'm driving (30 mph). As if its hesitating to go faster.
But basically the problem is when I'm just idle, still in drive, but waiting at a light. It just drops and sometimes it does is 5 times in a row.
The mechanic said it was the knock sensor, so I had that replaced. It was good for about a week, but now it does it again. I've read some things that a knock sensor is if you hear knocking sounds. My car does not make any knocking noises. It is silent, but the car just drops.
