Secondly, if you turn the key to ON position, do you notice anything unusual? Does the NATS light stay on solid (red car with key symbol) or does the condensor fan come on?

Since I am in this question as well, let me help.

Your saying the engine idles normally? but upon acceleration it's running poorly?

Can you explain HOW it's running poorly? is it missing? surging? bogging? smoking?

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!
