You can have more than 1 problem. Usually the trans or ECM senses an increased strain like going up a hill and downshifts the trans to bring up RPM to maintain speed. When another unknown component compares the downshift to the programming, if it does not match it may shut off the engine.
It is possible that the programming in the car has been corrupted and needs to be refreshed with new instructions. This is a dealer service job.
If it's like the 92 Maixima it is driven electrically from a sensor on the back of the transmission. It's a round cylinder of couple of inches in
diameter and about 3.5 inches long with a couple of wires attached. Located on the trans above and to the left of the engine oil filter looking from the drivers seat. It could be this sensor or the insturment cluster could be bad.
My sincere apologies for the extremely delayed response. I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions. I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.
I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.
1. Non Turbo =VG30E. Turbo = VG30ET. In any case the Engine Cylinder numbers, Firing Order, and Distributor Connections are the same.
For the 3.0L: Firing Order: 1-2-3-4-5-6 Cylinders: (back of engine) 5--------6 3--------4 1--------2 (front of engine) Distributor:
....(back) .6......5......4 .|.......|........| V......V......V |..................| |..................| ^.......^.......^ .|........|........| 1.......2.......3
2. I am not sure what what "cam adjustments" you were looking for. I am sure you probably have taken care of that or found what you were looking for. However, in most cases the person is really asking about the Timing issue.
