Hey Scotty I have a 2009 Nissan versa sl 1.8 hatchback. Recently after I got an oil change and had the tensioner belt replaced because it was making my Ac sound really bad nocking and the works. It's fixed now my car is purring like it should. Except the last week I notice now once my car warms up about 20 to 30 mins of driving my car starts hiccuping while I'm stop and going or just sitting in park I feel the hesitation intermittent. It's really annoying when I at a stop light and my car starts to jerk around a tad bit while I'm driving. This problem has not gone away and my mechanic didn't have allot of ti. E to diagnosis it because he says if it doesn't trigger a error code it could be a possibility of 39 things to check and it would be costly? I bought this car and 2 years ago I put a new cat on it. My friend thinks it might need a brand new oxygen sensor downstream. I already watched your videos for my MAF those didn't improve it at all. Plz help me out I don't think my error code will ever show up and I hate driving a car that hiccups. Just point me in a direction I can follow thank you and anyone who wants to comment.
realize those are horrid cars and fall apart at that age. I would drive it till a code popped, then decide whether to fix it or ditch it
As kooky as it sounds, and before doing this fixed my annoying hesitation... please follow Scotty's most popular YouTube, then drive a few days & get back to us. Use old toothbrush/rags. While you're in there cleaning Throttle Body, clean also PCV Valve & MAF Sensor too. Use correct cleaners for the respective parts. When elected President, I'm going to 1/ Make ''America The Beautiful" our National Anthem; 2/ Outlaw flute music; and 3/ Require every car owner to practice The Scotty's video biannually. Let us know how you fare, either way:
