hey all, so ive already been doing searches on this particular problem for the last week or so and thought that i would be ok just by doing that. i have replaced a number or parts to no prevail.
another bad acceleration problem.. heres my story .
(this first section is all leading up to the problems, read if you'd like , may have something to do with my current problem)
car was running great, i was driving it daily, and somewhat hard on some nights. my power steering pump had been out for a while which wasnt a huge probem to me but got annoying. i went out to a drift day and was running my car pretty hard throughout the day, but it was runing great the whole time, i even drove it another 100 miles after to get home, wth no problems. the next day i went in and replaced my P/S pump and belts and fluid. during that procedure i removed the airfilter and took the cap off the rotor to give myself room (did not take out the distributor). finished all that up and went for a spin.. car felt great no power loss P/S was working awesome. a few miles from home my belt blew off. got out , unmangled it and noticed that one ply had been torn i thought it was from it being loose but i then noticed that my crank pulley was not factory and ony had 2 grooves instead of three. using my resources i cut the belt down to 2 plys so it would work. got back in the car and drove it home, with no problems.**So heres where things started going really wrong.**The next night i went to go drivng with some friends, as we were heading out my car felt as if it was loosing power and was getting worse with the more gas i gave it, i figured that it was just because of my janky belt so i got out and checked it, i tightened it a little but it wasnt off by much, we start driving again and it its doing the same thing , (great i tightened it too much, i hought) so i pull over and mess with it some more, get back in and its still doing the same thing. so i decide to call it a night and start heading back home. i went to merge onto the freeway but was only able to give it about 10% gas without it wanting to die out and sputter and bog (as if a misfire) i pull over ..again pop the hood realizing that its beyond the belts. check all the wires, they were all tight checked all my cennections, all good. (im stumped) I get back in the car and onto the freeway again. after letting it sit for a min it felt as if it had a tad bit more power but not much. i was babying it the whole way barely giving it 15% throttle and it was getting worse and worse the further i went. by the time i got onto my road and to the first hill i was unable to give it any gas at all, anything id give it would make it want bog down and sputter more and more but it never died, i had to park the car down the road and walked. next day i went to my car , started it right up and drove it right up the hill, still had accel problems but made it. its as if the hotter it get the worse it runs.
sorry about the lenght of this but i woudnt beable to give all the details with out... please stay with me.
so in the daylight i go over everything.. i noticed my wiring harness going through the passenger side fender had dropped down and was rubbing on the tire, exposing a few wires, i imediately fix that. doesnt help..next i notice a few connectors the are bad about 3 or 4 of them. including my o2 sensore wire. i had another harness so instead of trying to splice the 02 and everything else i just threw in my other Engine harness. along with that i replaced *TPS , *temp sensor, *swapped the MAF, *new cat, *plugs, wires, coil, the rotor and contacts looked good so i didnt replace, *knock sensor, *fuel pump, *fuel filter and re-did the timing.
my car is still running like crap hasnt gotten any better, what else could possibly be wrong? please any help would much appreciated.
its a 93 dual cam. intake, altima intake cams, butterfly restrictor valves removed.
