94 Nissan pathfinder. Car idols good. Going down
the road  it sputters when it reaches around 2000
rmps and starts jerking like I'm playing with the
throttle. If I let off the gas a press it again all I hear
is the cold air intake humming. I've replaced fuel
pump fuel filter distributor cap plugs rotor button.
Any ideas?
