Question about 2006 Nissan Frontier
I think I may have water in my fuel from a recent fill up. Truck just started shutting off very frequently while driving. I was able to start it back up rather easily on day one. When it would start back up it would initially idle very rough, shutt off, start back up and idle fine. This happened about 15-20 times on day one. At the first stall out I added water remover and fuel system cleaner simultaneously. At the end of day one the vehicle would not restart, not due to battery power, just fuel issue still. It took about 4 hours on day two to restart the vehicle after having added 3 gallons of premium gas the night before at the last stall out and more water remover. I also cleaned the mass air flow sensor at this point. When the engine finally restarted and warmed up I revved it to about 4k rpm and a big black cloud blew from the exhaust. The engine idled smoothly at this point but at about 1k rpm for a extended time and not the normal 700 - 750 rpm. About 10 miles later everything was back to normal. 50 miles later the truck died out and I can't restart it to the point where it will idle smoothly and not bellow black smoke.

I had a 1995 nissan pick up with a similar problem, may want to try cleaning out or replacing the EGR valve.

sounds like you have a very dirty mass air flow meter. invest in a new one and be sure to clean the throttle body with an appropriate cleaner and tooth brush.

the gas cap can make your check engine light come on do to not enough vaccum in the take for your evap system and it could cause the vehicle to run a little funny. but highly unlikly this is your problem.if there are no trouble codes or no check engine light this could be very hard to diagnose on-line you may want to take it to a respectable mechanic and have them run an on board diagnostic test on it
