I need some suggestions
Guys I have a work truck 97 nissan pickup. Had it for a lot of years without the first problem. Now I have one, and really don't know where to start. 2.4 engine.
Every now and then, last time this happened was about 6 months ago. But when leaving a traffic light the engine sputters really bad. It doesn't kill, but if you accelerate hard, and get up some speed, it feels like you are shutting off the ignition, then turning it back on. Over and over. The sound that the engine makes is the same as it would be at a speed of 50 or so, and you would shut off the engine, then turn the key back on. I believe that the engine is actually dying, then restarting because I'm rolling in gear. I know it's either electrical or fuel, but I'm not sure what to test, and because it doesn't do it all the time, if even it would show up. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have another vehicle which I will be using until this is solved, and will be using it because I go through some not so safe areas on my way to work. Just please give me a place to start. TIA.
