Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima
Please help me find a solution to this mystery.
How do you explain my car just dying on the freeway while going 80 mph. 'I had slowed down to reach for something in the passenger side and tried to gas it again and could'nt reach speed limit due to lack of acceleration. There was no smoke coming from the car what so-ever. My car totally just shut down and I could'nt understand why. Just to make this clear, I just recently had an oil change and the mechanic would've told me if there was a problem and it was priority to fix. But I left the shop in good condition. A few days later I had a friend replace my speakers. He had installed front and rear speakers. The sound of the rear speakers didn't seem so clear. A few days later I had the following problem with my car just shutting down while driving. Not once had this happended to me before nor recently.
Could it possibly be the grounding of my speakers or my engine? Still yet no one could relate to me nor have a logical explanation to convince me to believe that it was just random. Could there have been a remoteless cut off switch installed to shut down the fuel pump and the electrical system? I'm saying nothing happens for no reason. My car is now in the shop being taken apart from the engine. I had a good car and a good engine. My car must've been tampered with some kind of device installed for this all to happen. Please help me answer this problem with a explantion with a solution to clear the possibilities of assumptions. Please please please please HELP ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU.
Well yes things happen to cars all the time for no apparent reason. the speakers have nothing to do with the car running at all. as far as the engine, well it could be a number of problems. 1. fuel pump of fuel pump relay. 2. bad coil pack(no spark). 3. any number of sensors could have gone bad. and i don't think that someone put any type of device on your car to shut it down. sorry
