Question about 2002 Nissan Bluebird
Entire car (motor, electronics, air) shuts off sporadically when rolling or idling. Car worked fine yesterday when it was humid/raining. Today back to old tricks. Engine light comes on, starter turns fine but takes a few seconds to start. Crankshaft position sensor or loose connection? Can someone tell me what/where to look? Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: oxygen sensor clean up ?
The check engine soon can refer to a loose or missing fuel cap. The computer checks the tank pressure, and should see it go down when running. If the cap is the case, the light should go out after about 10 starts. The Oxygen sensor cannot be cleaned, and should be replace every 80K miles or so. Running on a degraded sensor makes your fuel mileage worse. Most Pep Boys locations can read the code and tell you the exact cause for that light.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

I discovered that its the throttle body sensor. Its not sensing the postion of the foot pedal. The throttle body has a sensor that is linked to your gas pedal via a cable. The spring that the repair man mentioned could be the issue. The sensor then communicates to the computer the position and then computer then applies fuel, the mass air sensor then will communicate to the computer and the computer will then allow more or less air to fuel ratio. So if your stomping on the gas and there is not any response, then your throttle body sensor is most likely going out.

MAke sure you replaced the right sensor and it's the proper design.(If you bought a generic part, it;s probably the wrong thing) I replaced my cam and crank sensors with the generic ones from AutoZone and they had no effect. Took it to Nissan, they replaced both at my expense, AND REPROGRAMMED THE ECU. That fixed that problem SES light hasn;t come on in 6 months....Fingers crossed

In the kit there are two sensor that look identical. The one for the crankshaft has a white paint mark on it near the bolt hole. Make sure that it is in the right location.
