    okay it idles beautifully and revs nicely. but when put in either reverse or drive it starts to sputter and turns off. park and neutral it runs perfect. just in drive and reverse it immediately sputters and spits for 15 seconds and stalls. Help! dont have funds for a shop.

    okay here is where i am at now with the problem. I unplugged the MAF sensor and started the truck. the truck idled perfect and when i put it in gear it didnt stall, so that led me to believe something wrong with maf. so i took it out and cleaned it with alcohol. i reinstalled and plugged in sensor. started up and idles great and put it in gear didnt die. so i drove it around the block. ran good, when i got back i cut truck off and restarted idles good. put in gear to go again and stalled. now is back stalling. bad maf maybe?

There is a relay on the rh passenger side kick panel above the automatic transmission module that is controlled by the ECU through the MAF sensor that controls your fuel to the engine so the air / fuel mixture is correct. I fixed a pathfinder one time with a similar stalling problem.
