I have a 2000 frontier with about 103k on it. I recently replaced the distributer, and the cap and rotor, It was running good, then I noticed today It had a little stumble at idle, and when I start moving and stepped on the gas it felt like it was struggling to excelerate. It wasnt missing, it just felt like it wasn't revving up fast. any ideas?

just make sure you have your distrib rotated to the proper degree. like the teeth are in the right place on the distrib are in the right place but you can manually advance or retard the timing. just loosen the bolt on the distrib holder and start the truck and rotate the distrib so the rpm's increase a little. that should help.

I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the distributer, I did it at the end of summer, and it was running fine, this problem just started yesterday. I'm gonna try cleaning the MAF and if that dosn't do anything, I'm gonna chang the plug wires, and see if that helps

Have you ever had your timing belt replaced? I not it could have jumbed time by either stripping off a tooth or from to much slack in the belt.Usually teeth get stripped off on startup's.We had one in the shop last week that had 4 teeth in roll stripped off and still running.

I just did the timing belt, my buddy 's a nissan tech, he did the timing belt, and when he was finished we took it for a ride , and it still felt sluggish so he scanned it and it tured up the knock sesor code
