Pathfinder "cuts out" at 2,300 rpm

Replace your MAF, its a little pricey around $280.00 or so but this will clear the code but make sure you have the ECM reprogrammed to perform a "learning" sequence since sometimes the code will not clear even though the vehicle will run like new. This reprogramming will most likely have to be a dealer performed procedure.

Truck cuts off while driving

you might have a restricted fuel filter or a weak fuel pump. does it stall while you are trying to accelerate? when it stalls, does it shut off as if you've turned it off with the key, or does it putter out?

This could mean a lot of thing, 1.) possibly you wheel bearings could be going out. 2.) your break rotors and or brake pads could be shot. 3.) the transmission is shot but if you just had it rebuilt i can't see that being the case.

Had trouble starting the vehicle for two days on the second day when it finally started it puttered after it did start. let it set for a second to get itself going. when i put it gear kind of puttered some...

We have the same problem we changed the fuel pump and it fix the problem for about a week, the van started puttering and didn't start until the 20th try. Now we are looking at the fuel filter. What a way to spend the 4th.
