My daughter just bought a 2008 Nissan 2.5 with 199,000 miles

Customer Question

Hey Roy. My daughter just bought a 2008 Nissan 2.5 with 199,000 miles on it. Minutes ago just blocks from our home we pulled away from a light. The engine bucked and then started missing and then no acceleration (service engine soon light came on). We pulled into a parking lot and the engine would always be at idle (not rough anymore). It would not respond to the accelerator either in gear or in neutral. We drifted into a parking spot and turned the engine off. Restarted the engine and it ran fine for 3 blocks then pretty much the same problem. With the car towed back to our space the engine starts but won't go into any gear.
So here I am looking around to see what I can learn.
Thanks so much - My name is***** and we are in Ypsilanti Michigan (adjacent to Ann Arbor).
