with a new fuel pump and pfr, new fuel filter and no distributor, i can start my 2000sentra but if i try to accelerate it wants to sputter/die. eventually it will clean out but it wont exceed 4000 rpm

Asked by Dec 08, 2013 at 03:11 PM about the 2000 Nissan Sentra XE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

it idles fine no vibration to indicate a miss, but if i give it gas it sputters and takes a few
minutes to catch up and then runs fairly well at the higher r cleans out when returned to
idle. it is coiled not dist, no vacuum leaks. starts very easy but just seems like it has
too much fuel pressure. i put clamp on line going to the fuel regulator and car smooths
out during the idle but once the pedal is pushed it starts puttering
puzzled and annoyed....any answers as to why this is happening
