Ok, I am definitely having a problem here. Lastnight, my car began to stutter. What I mean by this is a very similar feeling to the "stop and go" you get when the clutch dies. But, I don't think it's the clutch. It seems to grab fine. So, what else would cause this? I have an appointment for a tune up with the dealer. But, that is in two weeks. This cannot wait that long. The car accelerates, but is pretty much shaking as it goes. This scares me.

Mine did that when I put cheap autozone wires on it. I took it to the stealership and they had it for 5 days and could not figure it our. (this was Grubbs nissan)
turns out one of my wires has gone bad.

my wires kept popping up on me, it was after i changed the spark plugs, lost a lot of power, i tightened the plugs more and they stopped popping out. my car stuttered when they popped up only at low rpms tho!

One time with my last car, I dropped the clutch to get a lil spin outta first.. it was a corolla, I wasn't expecting much, but when I let the clutch out it lurched forward with hardly any power. I was like oh ****.. please not another head gasket(went through 3). Turned out to be that a spark plug wire popped off. Pretty weird. What causes it to do that?

Well, I figured I'd go with the easy stuff first. I replaced the wires, seems to be running fine since. Hopefully that was the only prob. Thanks for your advice.

WhiteSER: I've had that happen twice b4 also. I have no idea why it happens, the only thing I could think of is that the silicone boots just don't hold well enuf at times.

I once had El Cheapo wires on my NX. The wires were arching on the block causing power loss. The Nissan dealer said you either have to buy racing wires or factory ones. The cheap ones can't always handle the heat generated from this engine, and if they do, they don't last. Every part I have replaced in my car has been genuine Nissan.
