Question about 2004 Nissan Murano
Sometimes when driving the car will lose power,and even shut off.
Hi Anthony, Sounds to me as if you possibly have a problem with fuel delivery? When did you last have the vehicle serviced? Have a diagnostic scan carried out in the event that a sensor is giving problems. Regards John

SOUNDS LIKE THE IDLE AIR VALVE IS CARBONED UP TRY SPRAYING CARBURETOR CLEANER INTO AIR INTAKE AT THE THRUTTLE BODY WHILE HOLDING IDLE SPEED AROUND 1500 TO 1900 RPMS USUALLY AFTER SPRAYING FOR SEVERAL MINUTES ABOUT HALF A CAN THE PROBLEM WILL BE FIXED ...IF THIS DOES NO GOOD YOU MAY HAVE TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER TO HAVE THE IDLE SPEED REPROGRAMED IN THE ECM WITH THE DEALERS DIAGNOSTIC SCAN TOOL....USUALLY FOR AROUND 50 TO 60 BUCKS HOPE THIS HELPS

I had similar problems after getting my ECU replaced.
later i got a letter from nissan saying it was the wrong program they flashed on the ECU (think it was a maxima ECU they flashed into my sentra)
it only seemed to do it right after my car warmed up while i was slowing down (for a stop) but never cut out when i was at a complete stop.
you can call nissan to see if there are any recalls or updates for your ECU program (they should be free if there is)
if that does not work, or it cuts off while accelerating, try checking your fuel/air ratio, spark plugs, air filter, and fuel injectors. (a fuel filter can even cause cut-outs as well if it's seriously clogged, but it's usually hard to start as well)
kinda sounds like heat problems, check to make sure your temp gauge is working and see if this helps...
- when it cuts out on you, turn key all the way off, then turn it back to full on (but don't crank) this should let you rad. fan run without cranking your car. if this causes the wait time to be shorter before you can crank it again (less than an hour) then it's most likely a temp gauge, water pump, hose or even a belt.

I had this problem once with a Jeep Wagoneer Limited. The combustion principle is most simple. You have fuel and you have spark. Since you are getting emission failures because of unburned fuel, I would start with the spark.
Most modern cars don't use points anylonger, but an electronic computer circuit to generate the spark. These can be very temperature sensitive. In my case, whenever the car would get warm, it quite and left me stranded, 20 minutes later, it would cool enough and run again as if nothing had happened.
I would try locating the spark amplifier under the hood and get a replacement. This is likely to solve the problem.
Hope this has helped.
