Customer Question

My engine doesn't like starting it takes a couple seconds to turn over and I'm having issues with loss of power while driving as well as my engine putters
JA: Does the engine spark at all? Is there a trouble code or is your "check engine light" on?
Customer: No lights at all have come on
JA: What is the model/year of your Nissan?
Customer: 2003 Nissan Sentra SER spec V
JA: Are you fixing your Sentra yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have some mechanical experience and I've cleaned out the catalytic converter as it was plugged and that was the only thing that I could think of but the same issues are still continuing
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I had a mechanic in my home town I know really well take it for a drive and he noticed half of what I notice, the issues seem more noticeable while I drive it but I don't drive any different then he does and he is looking into it we're both equally confused as to what it could be
