Hey all,

- Most importantly, where can I find a free parts directory list for a '97 Nissan Altima?
- It doesn't accelerate as well as it used to and I just noticed this within the last month (Is there anything I should check or fix ?).
- whats the best website to buy parts for a '97 Altima?
(all the websites appear to have the same inventory & price)

thanks a lot, I'm so happy I stumbled on this website.

I replied to your other thread but a good tune up should take care of the problem. I recommend The NGK V-Power plugs and Nissan cap and rotor. Don't forget to change the air filter and fuel filters as well.

have you added a muffler? have you replaced your fuel filter? how long has it been since a tune up has been done to your car? you have to let us know what you are experiencing and what you have done to your car.

yes, i recently replaced my muffler about 4months ago. can this be the cause of it? and I also had my tune up feb of last year. Does this have anything to do with the spark plugs or is it the muffler? Thanks for replying.

did yu repplace it with a factory or is it a aftermarket loud muffler?
i replaced it with a regular muffler at a local muffler shop but not with factory mufflers though. is this the cause of loss in horsepower?

well the reason i was asking was that when you put on an aftermarket muffler on it will run fine for a little while but then the muffler starts gettin louder and yu start losing backpressure and it affects your acceleration off the line. but if its 1 like you say then that should not be the problem. i think you should do a good tune up. fuel filter, pcv valve, oil change with a good synthetic oil, spark plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor button. then post back and let us know.
