Help! various issues with car
I have been doing lot of research and can't seem to find an exact answer if there is one out there to my issues.
Background- 2002 Altima SE 3.5 about 70K on it. (I barely drive since in NYC)
The old issue. I got a check engine light (2 months ago) and the car shut off on me while on the road. My mechanic checked it out and the codes were for the Cam sensor and the Knock sensor. Both cams and knock sensor changed and no more SES light.
The new issue. The other day I went to a dr. appoinment and the car did not want to start. It was not the battery as the lights and everything electrical worked and the car was cranking just not turning over. I called for road service and while I waited I did the procedure to check the engine but no codes so thats a good thing. I even hooked up my jumper in case it was the battery but nothing. After about 10 minutes I try to start and it did. As I was driving home on the highway I went to accelerate and the car seemed to be jerking at around 3K rpm so I let off the gas a bit and the jerking went away.
Now I read a lot of posts and threads and found some people having the starting issues and other the jerking but not really both and neither had real cause to the issue.
If you have had similar issue please let me know what you have done to resolve. Hope its not going to cost a lot because if not then time to trade in.
