Trying it again

This has been happening to me for about a month. I thought it was due to me having a minor accident. I tried to do the relearn as per the video, but no dice.
I'm going to try again today, b/c it sucks being stuck at a light w/people honking at you to go. Thanks for you post Ash!

i am having a semi related problem with my 2003 sentra spec v. a few days ago i would push the gas and nothing happens. a day later with the car still just idling, still nothing. so i towed it back to my house to work on it. started it the next morning and all it would do is turn over stutter and die, if i held the key down for a little bit longer i could force the car to start. and it would idle at about 600 rpms. today i bought a new pedal thinking it was the pedal not communicating. not the case as it would still do the same thing. so i called nissan and asked if they had a throttle body in stock and they did for 211 not a bad price. so i installed the throttle body and did all the relearn stuff and it starts just fine but surges from 1500 to 2500 and i dont know what to do anymore, i really dont want to take it to a shop. so any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated.

I was able to do this using the video but as soon as I turned the car on idle dropped and threw a 300 code and I still have a bad surge, will replace cam sensor tomorrow, and maybe crank if not fix problem. Any other thoughts?

What a pain this was. Good feeling when you finally get it. The dork in movie said the engine was a 2.4 lol, then it shows a big ass 2.5 logo. The video was very helpful along with a stopwatch.
