Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Bonnie, You may have reached time to replace spark plugs, and spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor if equipped. It may also possibly need a fuel filter change if external. Those items would be a place to start, you may only need a basic tune-up. AJ Pierce

Donna Burmeister, Service Manager at Classic Nissan Intermittent problems should be diagnosed by a certified technician. They are hard to find at times.
