How does removing the MAF sensor "fix" the problem? MAF is THE most important sensor for the engine to run, while it may be your problem there should be an MIL on. Get the code for a clue to your problem

SOURCE: 2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S, Check Engine Light Problem.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

SOURCE: When I try to accelerate my car has no power!

There could be a couple of reasons. Yes a tune up would be nice. But my not fix the problem. If you are not losing acceleration on straight away but on hill, then it could be the torqe converter. Also have your MASS airflow sensor checked and air filter.

Also check your fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Get a fuel gauge and look for a port on the fuel rail for a port that looks like the valve on the tire. Screw it in and crank the car. You will have to call the part store to find out what pressure it is supposed to be. If there is low or eratic pressure the its the filter or pump

Dear Tajack73: Nissan had a voluntary recall campaign on the 2002,2005,2006 Altima's with the 2.5 litre engines It envolves reprogramming the ECM.
The campaign ID # RD0712 NHTSA #: 07V-527

SOURCE: 000 NISSAN Xterra -- after warming up, loses RPM by 500-1000..... have replaced ignition wires and distributor, checked mass air flow sensor and OK.....

I had a problem on my Nissan Xterra 2000. Symptons sound similar. In my case, it ran fine for a while and then suddenly the engine starts to stumble and lose output. At one point it did not even have enough HP to move. Irregular idling too. Thought it was water in my fuel. Bought water remover from the store and added to gas tank. Problem did not go away. Instead, "Service Engine Soon" light came on. Had to have it towed to the dealer as there was no way the engine could keep up with traffic. Dealer replaced the "Crank Position Sensor" today. Parts $33.00, Labor: $300 (about 3 hrs worth of work). Seems to work fine now but I will wait and see. Dealer also stated that Distributor bearing appears to be noisy and will need to be replaced sooner or later. I will wait for it to go before I fix that.

SOURCE: My 2003 Nissan Altima won't accelerate.

The accelerator is a potentiometer connected to a pedel and the wires go directly to the ECM. If the AWU( accelerator Working Unit) was bad the engine would run constant at 1800-200 rpm. Do any codes come up? I will do some more research and repost.

    • Possible causes
    • Faulty mass air flow sensor
      - Intake air leaks
      - Dirty mass air flow sensor
      - Dirty mass air filter
      - Mass air flow sensor harness is open or shorted
      - Mass air flow sensor circuit poor electrical connection
    • Before replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor.

    01 Nissan Altima cuts off at red lights

    Hi Nichelle, Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. If the engine sounds smooth and is running well, I do not believe you need an new engine. What is more likely is a defective fuel pump or fuel regulator. A very common fault on Nissans is the mass air flow sensor, which sounds as if it is the problem with your vehicle. Regards John

    I have a 2001 nissan altima and sometimes my car wont go over 60mph would that b gas filter issue or mass air flow sensor

    If the gas filter is due, I would replace it as a matter of course. The mass air flow sensor is a possibility...try leaving the mass air flow sensor wire harness unplugged to see if the car runs better. If it does, probably it is bad. However, I would also check the exhaust for a restriction (eg. cat converter could be plugging up), one way to check that is to hook a vacuum gauge to the engine to see if you get normal values. (vacuum should hold steady @ about 20 Hg with engine at 2500-3000 RPM, with no fluttering or drop-off). Also, ensure that all your vacuum hoses are good, and that there are no vacuum leaks (leaks will make a hissing noise).

    Changed the starter in my nissan and now the engine light came on. Dose the maf sensor need to be replaced with the starter?

    What would draw you to the Mass air flow sensor? Is there a code for it? If there is no code then most likely one of the wires on the starter may not be completely tight. Occasionally this will cause the check engine light may come on.

    Car jerks on freeway and engine shuts off.

    It sounds like your Mass Air Flow Sensor is faulty. These sensors will normal show fault when cruising at highway speeds causing the vehicle to almost stall or stall. Replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor with a known good one and test drive the vehicle. This will most likely repair your concern.
