    drove 25 minutes perfect.

    refueled and continued on. 5 minutes later the car stalled and would not restart. 10 minutes later it started and continued perfectly. No indication, no codes. 3.5SE 76K miles

    I have the same thing occurring. I had the crank sensor replaced and the check engine light continued to come on. I took it back to the repair shop where they informed me that it is probably the idle air control valve. Check to see if your car is idling higher or lower than usual. I now have to take it to a Nissan dealership, because they can program it. My repairman said there is a service bulletin on this problem. Hope this helps.

Why my car turns off while driving?

When it doesn't start does it not turn over or does it not fire? When you are driving does it sputter and quit or just suddenly stop running? Does it make a difference what speed you are going? Does it happen after a certain period of time? Does it quit when going over bumps? When it quits will it start right away, or wait a little bit or get it towed home because you don't know when it's going to start again? Do you still have a carburator or throttle body? These questions would help to narrow down what could be causing your problem.

My 2003 pt cruiser wont start sometimes if i start it drive for a 1/2 hour then shut it off come back in 5 to 10 min it will not start but it will turn over. I will wait then shift into neutral and back to...

Is the check engine light on? Try spraying carb. cleaner in FI. and start. If it starts and runs until fluid is dry, might be fuel pump. If engine light on and has been for awhile, could be cat. converter stopped up and engine can't breathe so it shuts it off.

I am losing oil and it is not on the ground. Altima 2003. sounds like maybe the lifters

This is a common problem with the 2002 and 2003 2.5 engine
You have a problem vehicle, what is happening is the oil is escaping through the piston valves and into the cat, converter
this will eventually pulverize your converter , supposedly you
can stop this from happening with a repair . google "excessive oil consumtion nissan 2003" at quite a few pages will come up

2003 Altima shuts off while stopped at red light

If you have a Service Engine Soon light on, then having the computer scanned for codes would be recommended. The code could indicate what the problem may be. The most common is cam and crank sensors.

I would have it checked to verify.

Thanks Jay!
