Having the same problem with a Nissan Pulsar 2004 model. Usually chuggs and looses power for a second or two when I have been driving for around 20 minutes, if put my foot down on the accelerator it picks up speed again. Changed the MAF sensor yesterday, but nothing else and still had problem this morning. Partner had the issue diagnosed on a nissan computer and it said MAF, but we still have the problem. PLEASE HELP ME TOO! :)
