Lately when I drive some where and turn it off. Like if I go to a resturant when I come back out to start it, it acts like it doesn't want to start again. And now when I get to a stop like for a light or sign. If I don't stop for a few seconds when I hit the gas it acts like it wants to die.

And today it died on me when I slowed down in a parking lot.

Its a 1992 Nissan Sentra.

Any ideas???? Please help I need this car bad!

The check engine light isnt on. And I bought this car used a few months ago. I am not sure when the last tune up was.

see if the engine light comes on when you turn the key on also change

your gas filter and air filter pull out a spark plug and see if it is

burn out becarefull not to break a wire that happen to me lots of time

if your car has a cap and rotor look at that too and check all your

vacuum hoses make sure you dont have a leak you can use glass cleaner

to check them good luck mike

although the above posts and kinda helpfull they are not hitting the nail on the head...these cars are very proned to injector failure and tuneup issues....sounds like u might wanna take it to a shop and have it looked at..

i would agree with nick, but just because the check engine light isnt on doesnt mean something isnt wrong.
