82 Maxima diesel poor acceleration


Post by Duaneclark » 8 years ago

My 82 Maxima with automatic has very poor acceleration from a full stop up to highway speeds. I can compare the acceleration with another similar car I own, so I'm sure there is some problem. My question is this;could the automatic transmission be causing this drag?, as the engine seems to run just fine. Once up to speed, it seems to do fine also. I had a GM automatic that was bad once dragging down the acceleration, and this seems similar. Thanks, Duane
