Engine Performance problem
2002 Nissan Sentra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 151000 miles
2002 Nissan Sentra XE
L4 - 1.8L 1809cc type QG18DE - MFI GAS DOHC
Check Engine Light - Code reports multiple misfires.
Vehicle has 151000 miles, tune up at 146,000, new plugs and Computer Diagnostices. Air Flow Meter/Sensor replaced.
For the past few weeks, the car cranks fine, but a little sputter for maybe 10 seconds or so. I use Fuel Additive abour twice a month to keep injectors, etc. Clean. After 10 seconds runs fine, normal (good) acceleration, and gas mileage still right at 30mpg.
New Computer "brain" installed by dealer when I took the car in for re-call work just before warranty expiration at 100,000 miles. So new brain only has 53,000 miles.
Q: Could the Crank Sensor be causing this? I can replace it myself, easily assesible, and not expensive.
Q: What else electrical could cause a timing issue
have the same problem?
