My 2004 Nissan Sentra 1.8 has odd acceleration power

5

Asked by Mar 12, 2015 at 06:55 PM about the 2004 Nissan Sentra 1.8

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It is slow to accelerate. Seems like there is no power, around 20 and 30 MPH it is high RPMs. 40 MPH it seems normal. I haven't been able to get it to 65 MPH on the highway. This started while I was drive to Reno from Salt Lake just after Christmas and I think I put E85 instead of 87. Then I just couldn't get it over 65 MPH. tried topping off the oil might have over filled (it was shooting out whitish blue smoke for a few minutes before I drained the oil) it but drained it and refilled as soon as possible. Drove it around and kept filling up the gas when I could but nothing seems to work. I also found the tension pulley for the serpentine belt was about to fall off last week.
