Default Sentra 1.8 misfire -

Have an 02 Sentra GXE 1.8L. It's my commuter car so I need it to work. For the most part this car has been performance perfect. I've owned it for 10+ years with only a issues driving it at least 200 miles a week. One was a blown head gasket in the first 4 years I had it. That was a pretty easy job since I've done several HG's on my Jeeps and my older Camry. So, now the problem with my Sentra.

Car runs great, until it doesn't. Driving, running fine, out of the blue, it starts choking. feels like it's running out of gas. The tach fluctuates wildly. I pull over, turn it off, hook up my codes. I start it back up, rev it a few times, drive home at highway speed another 12 miles, no problem. This has happened to me twice. I've hit it with the scanner for "pending codes" and finally got P0303. Misfire cyl 3. But that code has never set as a current code.

I can't get it to replicate the symptom. I can't get it to repeat the code. Any ideas?

So is this forum closed? Abandoned? What's the deal.

This page alone has 20+ thread posts about Nissan Sentra problems where people are asking for help, advice etc. and there are like 7 (seven) total replies. That's just this ONE page. Where's the support. Lame. Bye.
