sputtering while driving, very little acceleration

Asked by Mar 11, 2015 at 06:15 PM about the 1996 Nissan Sentra GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a '96 sentry gxe. When I go to accelerate my engine will start to sputter, or when I'm
driving the engine will do the same and I cant accellerate, I'll slow down and a few
minutes later the engine will catch and I can pick up speed? What is it and what can I do
to fix this

I just baught the car a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure when the last tune up was nor the last fuel filter and the engine light isn't on i was waiting till my next check to take care of it but it looks like I can't wait.

I get that for sure. If it were me I would probably put a fuel filter on and have the computer scanned for free at AutoZone or someplace.

rockauto.com has filters for less than 14 bucks. There will be some shipping, so maybe AutoZone or Napa or a local store will have one around that price.
