Question about 2003 Nissan Pathfinder
I have a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder, and the engine turns off while I'm driving.
This is a problem I've had for the last week or so.. Haven't taken it in to the mech. yet.
Luckily the car hasn't turn off while moving... But only when I'm stopped at a light or something after stepping on the brakes. The engine hiccups and the next thing I know, car turns off with the "engine service soon" light illuminating.
If I put the car (obviously) back to "Park" and turn the key in the ignition my car has EVERY TIME turned back on, but lately it turns off more suddenly!
Please help me out
Check for a loose ground cable connection and inspect the distributor and inside the cap for excessive wear or signs of issues like leaks or metal shavings.

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

have your mechanic take a special hadr look at the cam pos sensor. we have seen this problem alot out of those vehicles and this seems to fix them without replacing the trans.

The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. Just in-case, check the engine oil level.
There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.
