There was a common issue on these vehicles involving the ground from the transmission. The negative battery cable bolts to the transmission. Over time the mating surface of the trans to the engine will corrode causing a voltage drop between the engine and trans. This throws off the 180 signal from the crank sensor and the car will do exaclty what you are describing. The absolute best fix for this is to remove the trans, clean the mating surface on the engine block and the trans, chase the trans mounting bolt threads in the engine block and bolts, apply some dielectric grease to the mounting surfaces and reinstall transmission. I know this is a big job, but many have tried to short cut it with no better results.

Try the Throttle Positioning Sensor. It's located on the throttle body. Make sure you get a genuine Nissan part though. I believe it's about 120 dollars at the dealer. But this fixed the issue for me.

The the airflow meter can shut off the car completely, it can also stop the car from reving over 2000rpm "limp mode" to save the engine from getting un-measured amounts of fuel.

1.Check for spark.
2. check to make sure ing.wires are not crossed or mixed up.
You have gas so its not the fuel pump.
3.try taping the starter with a hammer while some one you trust turns the key.If she starts up this would be a bad solinoid and you need a new starter.

I have same/similar problem.... if this problem happens off and on... runs well one day and next day is jerky-stalling then it's more than likely your airflow meter
