    So, I got the old lady a '88 Nissan Maxima wagon a while back for her DD. I might add, this bad bitch has era correct Rotas on it lol. Also, it is a 3.0 V6. Anyways, it ran just fine up until about last week. Now, it has a part throttle miss. Its not so bad that it seems like its gunna die, but its definitely noticable. I just checked the plugs (which all looked good) and re-gapped them but it still misses. A visual inspection didnt turn anything up, that might cause a miss. Now Im thinkin it might be a fuel issue. While its running, none of the injectors sound troubled. Could a bad fuel filter cause a part throttle miss?

    My next thought was to seafoam the tank and see if it cleared up, but I doubt that help the problem.

    Wires are fairly new. May replace them anyways, I dont like em. I think Ill go ahead and do the cap and rotor though. It looks like it got a full tune up just before I got it, but the only way to know for sure is to do it again lol.

    Ill get a pic up later tonite lol.

    Same engine as the corresponding year 300zx, which was known for it's electrical gremlins.

    Good luck.

    Lol, seems like its caused by something mechanical. But, anythings possible I guess.
