Does the check engine light flash or come on or is it more of a bogging when you try to accelerate?

more of a bogging
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

No check engine light on at that time?

it might flash for a second or 2
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 10 months ago

Ok

Couple things would cause this.

Most commonly would be the mass air flow sensor. Usually that won't always turn the light on and the truck will have a lot of issues under heavy acceleration. Most often it won't get past about 2500-3000 rpms and then drop right off.

Secondly could be one of the ignition coils failing. Now normally they will turn the light on and sometimes cause a flashing check engine light. Usually that will leave a code stored for a specific cylinder.

If the light is flashing then I would imagine it is a coil and a misfire more then the maf sensor. If you can get a code reader on it, it will tell you which one is failing. This makes sense as well with more moisture in the air. Just like an old wire setup, the spark isn't getting to the spark plug.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
