Skipping & stalling

I have a 1994 nissan pathfinder v6 3000 i just had it tuned up, the fuel pump is alright, the fuel filter is alright, but engine light is on when i drive the car it start to skip and stall could it be the engine light on, cosing the problem. thank you very much Still need a solution for this problemI have a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder, gas engine, automiatic transmission 4 x 4. About a month and a half ago was driving up the mountain and the car simply quit. Got it to the mechanic. We replaced spark plugs, replaced air fil\ter, replaced fuel filter, replaced electronic fuel pump.
Even had it put on a diagnostic machine. No faults found. That worked for about a month.

Now same problem again. Car starts fine idles smooth. But once I start driving it stalls and wont start for about three minutes. If I wait about three minutes it will start again. It will stall at any given speed. No special warning lights come on it simply stops running.

I have no idea what to do.

It was a coil wire in one of the cylinders (nissan has ignition coils instead of the old plug wires) and this will fix the misfire if in fact that is what it is. To tell if you are misfiring, does the car idle smoothly? Does it misfire and kind of shake while driving where only pushing the gas peddel takes the problem away? Does the car feel like it may stall? Have it checked as if you don't and it continues it could burn out the catalytic converters and those are expensive on the nissan as there are multiples.

It could be a problem with your fuel pressure regulator. I am not familiar with a pathfinder, but it should be located on or near the fuel injector rail on top of the engine. These are typically controlled by a vacuum line.

Hello,
When the MAF on most vehicles reach a point of preventing the engine from starting, you can usually just unplug it and the engine will start. If that doesn't work-
You may want to try having the O2 sensor, ( Oxygen sensor ), checked. It works with other components of the emission system and can cause similar symptoms as the MAF, including preventing the engine from starting.

Ecu computer doesn't show codes but engine stalls when accelator is pressed


if there are no codes and the engine is stalling when applying the gas then you either have a bad fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. i recommend first replacing the fuel filter it is a cheap and easy fix. good luck
