Hello, I"m Brandon - Nissan tech.

It sounds like a bad throttle position sensor.

Can you scan the vehicle's computer using an OBD2 scanner? It will give me an idea what is really wrong with the car.

The scanner on amazon cost about $20-60. When you have the code please come back here and I will help you out.

Please rate me positive, thank you!

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
