Stalls out when braking quickly, worse with going down hill

95 nissan pathfinder. Starts up fine, idles fine, drives fine. I can slow down ok, but if I bring it to a stop too quickly it stalls out. It is worse going down a hill.

Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.

    I think I am having this problem as well. I just replaced the rear main seal and had to repair the crankshaft on my 01 frontier v6 3.3 VG33E. I lost a lot of transmission fluid and had to top off a lot to get back to the proper level I have a feeling I might've messed something up with the torque converter now. I've also noticed that I have a significant loss of power when I try to accelercate from a stop (feels like its slipping on first gear and then second kicks in and the whole truck jumps forward rather than a smooth start)

That happened to me too. But I was almost out of gas. Just a thought.

My 1994 5-speed manual Pathfinder sputters and jerks when it's cold


Here are the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and/or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving

Nissan pathfinder cutting out


I read somewhere that the problem was related to the sensor in the brake pedal, when it goes bad it confuses the computer, no input to indicate that the brake was applied, so it basically goes into limp mode, press the accelerator all the way to the floor and you get only gradual acceleration.

My 1993 Nissan Pathfinder's Chronic 'Back Pain'


I would think the exhaust converter is an issue,IF it
is more than 12 or 14 years old

Passing an emission test & having a complete honey
comb inside are two different things

You could do a cylinder leak down test

I would say it probably is carboned up, if it is the
original engine,thus doesn't like hills

Valve train wear most likely

I popped a brake line on my 1995 Nissan Pathfinder, unfortunately it's in a VERY expensive parking garage with ceilings so low it can't be towed out. Will the parking brake still work so I ca


Yes parking brake will still work. It is mechanical with a wire going from pedal/handle that when pulled squeezes the brake shoes round the rotor. Just go real slow and you should be alright. Hope this helped you.

1999 nissan pathfinder jerks and stall when slowing down or at red light


YOU might find its due to the Auto Matic gear box as when you slow down at the lights or brake hard to stop the auto box should brake free at about 600rpm as to allow the car to stop but the engine to keep idling,but the drive bands in the gearbox and the pump which operate them are not braking free so its like, in a Manual g/box driving and stopping but leaving the clutch pedal and not pushing it in so the car stalls,
SO you may find that the next time you are driving it and come to the lights just try putting it in NEUTRAL gear before you stop and try, if it ok then get the g/box serviced . RON

Nissan Sentra random stalls and wont start hot


Check out the catalytic converter, might be plugged up. I have seen some cars that will run fine, and like someone threw a switch the car acted like yours, no power, would not rev and died. Later when cold they would be OK for a while then just get worse and worse.

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...
