My '05 xterra starts and idles, but will not accelerate.

Customer Question

My '05 xterra starts and idles, but will not accelerate. Also, gauges all work during start up, but quit working directly after ignition and the idle drop down just a little. No fuses are blown. Any ideas?

Hi there,

Is the check engine light on when it's running? What happens if you try to accelerate in park or neutral?
I mean does the engine race?
