Customer Question
While at highway speeds...

While at highway speeds on interstates, I am experiencing engine surges in my 2011 Nissan Cube (14,000 driven miles) I do not have the same problem at lower speeds (city driving conditions).

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

14,500 miles - automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cube yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have all standard maintenance performed at the Nissan dealership

Hi, I'm Ron a real expert to assist you with this.

Let's start with getting the codes read for a better direction and also have the fuel pressure tested while driving it so we can see if it is dropping off. Keep me posted of these results please.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

when I search online I see numerous references to engine surging problems with cubes. Before going to an authorized dealer, I am seeking guidance on what the problem could be in order to be better informed. Can you help me with some experienced guidance concerning this problem?
Nissan Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 6 months ago

Yes, I already mentioned to you the tests that need to be performed. We wouldn't want to start making guesses at this that most likely won't fix it.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now
and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me

My goal is to assist you in the repair of your vehicle by
supplying you with well educated information. I may not
always have the exact fix you wanted to hear, but my job is
to get you on the right track, which I always do. I can’t hear,
see, smell or touch your vehicle from where I’m at, so your
understanding of that is greatly appreciated. There are no
magical answers, but I do my best to guide you in the right
direction.
