HI, i recommend a standard tune up and air filter change. i also recommend replacing the fuel filter and pump in this vehicle as well.

Just to be safe, test the operational value of every injector on this engine. you could a some faults here as well.

Applying the above adjustments and replacements will improve the performance of this vehicle dramatically.

Car stalled out and died. Cranks, but wont start all of the sudden.


On an incline that you stopped on, dont under estimate that if your low on fuel it may not be picked up by the fuel pump, or your fuel pump may have went out. If you run low on fuel often or up & down hill on low fuel will cause your fuel pump to burn out premature, they even say not to run less than a qrtr tank to be safe, but todays cost in fuel usually people wait till the last minute (gallon) which puts a strain on the fuel pump as the gas cools the motor and incline and decline in roads will mimic a low tank. What doesnt make sence is you sprayed starting fluid which should have fired for a few seconds, which brings you to spark issues, check you coil pack plugs and wires, most likely coil pack over plug and wires should still fire even if a plug or wire goes bad, but the coil pack controls the power going to the wire then plugs.

Nissan Sentra random stalls and wont start hot


Check out the catalytic converter, might be plugged up. I have seen some cars that will run fine, and like someone threw a switch the car acted like yours, no power, would not rev and died. Later when cold they would be OK for a while then just get worse and worse.
