Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder V6, it stalls while idling and take a long time to get it started again. Once its running, the idle is smooth and will run for maybe 5 min and shuts off. It was hooked up to a diagnostic computer and read no code, as if everything was fine. But this is the 4 time it has stalled in 2 days, sometimes it will start after 6 or 7 cranks, sometimes not at all. Thank You for your help

Sounds like it could be a weak or failing fuel pump.Change fuel filter and see if that helps.

SOURCE: 2006 Envoy stalling when idels and won't stay running

Clean your Throttle body and pay attention to the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve passageway to try to clean the IAC. A dirty or faulty IAC will cause your engine to stall at idle, the job of the IAC is to open the passage way through the throttle body to regulate the amount of air to enter the engine to keep it from stalling when the Envoy is at idle.

Start with the simple and clean the throttle body and inspect any loose or damaged wire leads to the throttle body. Replace or repair any signs of damage.

Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.

let it idle for a while so the water can boil or evaporate out of where it got in. The warm engine will speed the process.

You'll need to change the distributor, as the distributor shaft oil seal has gone bad. Without sufficient spark, you'll have no power. Don't forget a new cap/rotor.

96 chevy s10 v6 stalls after i start it up


This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

I have a 99 pathfinder v6 and when i start it it idles fine but when i put into gear the engine dies...


You may have a dirty throtlebody or a bad idle air control valve, start by cleaning throtlebody with an old tooth brush and some cleaner for the throtlebody then if it still stalls replace the idle air control valve. you can also have the computer scanned for codes the computer will store a code when the engine doesnt run wwithin specs, for example there may be a code for the idle air valve. you can go to any auto part store and they will scan the computer at no charge.

Changed mass air sensor still stalling 1997 nissan pathfinder


As a factory Nissan trained Technician with dealership experience - it can be many things, but it sounds alot like a mis-adjusted or faulty TPS, and/or a faulty IAC(Idle air control) valve - I'd try the TPS and set to appx. .50 vdc (.47/.49) Volts DC and if that isn't it, I'd definitely look to the idle air control valve ( allows for air bypass - sometimes called bypass air control valve). May then need base timing and idle set at shop with OBDII ignition disabling option, for seting timing and idle, otherwise computer won't allow proper setting...then if connector to IAC is OK - should be just fine...

My V6 1992 PATHFINDER IDLES RICH AND SURGES AT IDLE.


You need to Replace your Gas Cap. The Seal is worn and it is allowing Air to get inside the Fuel tank Causing your Rough Idle.
