Question about 1996 Nissan Quest
This happens only randomly every several months...usually during a long trip.
Engine dies and I'm sitting beside the road. Does not show overheating or check engine light......After 5 - 10 minutes, it will start again and run fine. I've had computer check, fuel pump, air filter replaced....no indications anything wrong. Maybe some sensor or computer is shutting it down??? Thanks for your help
Sonds like a sensor putting out an error code to shut it down ( like a fatal error code) Prolonged vibrations and heat can make cam sensors, maf, o2 senosr do craz ythings which will actuate a govener and stall your car...could also be you fuel pump causually telling you that "hey im bout to die".I dealership can run a stress test (if you will) to check the longivity of the pump...
Good luck hope this helps :)

I'm almost sure it's a fuel pump problem, I already had the same headache with a '96 villager, fixed after 3 fuel pump replacements, it sounds strange to replace 3 OEM fuel pumps in 4 months, but remember electric parts can die anytime, just to be sure, next time you go on a long trip, have a full gasoline can with you, when it happens just put the extra gas in your tank, this will cool down the furl pump if the van starts right away, I'm sure it's an overheated fuel pump, replace it. PS remember defective fuel pumps will never send an error code to your computer.

I have the exact thing except this doesnt happen on long trips.... have already had the fuel pump and lines replaced TWICE. it acts sluggish like "ahh do I have to drive" then drives fine... other times it actually sputters and dies like I turned off the key mid ride. takes 1/2+hr of waiting for it to turn back on like nothing was wrong... THEN this morning... I drove to class and got in and it wouldnt do anything. radio and lights go on... but i turn it to start it and nothing.. one click as I do it right in front of me and nothing more. never had problems starting it.. just with it stalling for no reason.... is there a recall on the fuel pump we can take advantage of????
