Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima
The car turns off while driving. I have to shift to neutral and step on the gas at red lights so the carr won't turn up. I've replaced the fuel filter and do regular tune ups. What could the problem be?
This is a good job for a diagnostic scanner; if the error memory of your 'computer' is read out with one, you may save yourself a lot of time and aggravation.
I'm pretty sure your car is new enough to be monitoring most any part of the engine and tranny.
If you have a mechanic you trust (yeah, I know, all youse guys are honest ;-) ) they probably have one on hand and shouldn't charge more than a couple of bucks to check the car's memory and decode the resultant output. The day of the huge analyzers is waning.
You can also buy one yourself, perhaps cheaper than renting a mechanic. They are offered in several eBay stores and the prices range from $20 (very limited), to $200+ (who needs all that?). I bought mine on sale from Harbor Freight (also .com) for $40 US on sale and discounted from $60. It bears the name Centech (I think it's a house brand from above) and comes with both a book of codes and a CD which will decode the output for you.
It wanders around in our family and has saved us many hours of fingernail biting on the 9 miscellaneous vehicles we own.
