05 Altima Hesitates when starting - sometimes
hey eveyone I'm new here. I did a search but coudn't find what I was looking for.
About 2 monhts ago my 05 Altima (34k miles) started hesitating when starting. Happened everyone once in a while. Had a fuel system clean when I got my last oil change. Thought it took care of it but I was wrong.
I took it to Nissan last week and they bugged out, after market air filter, dirty cabin filter, clogged fuel injectors, blah, blah, blah. Tring to sell me the 30k tune up. However I did have them do the full fuel system cleaning and throttle body adjustement.
Car ran excellent untill today. My wife called, she has the car today, and it did the hesitation thing twice. I really don't want to go back to Nissan but when I spoke to the guy at Pep Boys he'll not look at it.
Anyone else having this problem? Anyone have any ideas as to what the problem is.
Nissan in NY looked at the starter 2 months ago and the battery's been checked, it's fine.
Also, and this could be totally seperate. When the car's stopped at a light and the A/Cs on, when the compressor kicks in it really kills the idle, never stalled, never dropped below 600+ but drops it a bit.
