engine idle rough

Asked by Feb 07, 2015 at 09:33 PM about the 2002 Nissan Sentra GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when my engine is idling in park, it is fairly smooth. when i put the car in drive, the engine
alternates from smooth to rough. seems to have a skip similiar to a plug wire skip but
isn't. recently had camshaft sensor and crankshaft sensors replaced because of codes
and just recently had #3 coil  replaced because of code. Right now check engine light is
not on and car cranks great and runs great except for random skipping. I have the 1.8.
