Question about 1994 Nissan Altima
My Nissan Altima 1994 SE keeps stalling when I drive for a while and the engine tends to idle roughly or shuts off by itself, I just changed the sparks, gas and air filter, new distributor cap and rotor. Wondering what it could be, my handbrake and battery is lit on, does the alternator may affect ?
COULD HAVE FAULTY FUEL PUMP.FAULTY MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR,FAULTY EGR VALVE WILL STALL OUT ENGINE.I WOULD GET VECHICLE CODE SCAN BEFORE BUYING NEW PARTS.

Yes the alternator can send dirty ..too high...or too low a voltage to the system causing all sorts of gremlins.. test test

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold, other symptoms include stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), 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 cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
