1997 Nissan Maxima Revs then dies.

Just the other day i was driving my 1997 Nissan Maxima when all of a sudden it starting to rev and died. I turned the car off and it started right back up. Its been driving alright for the past few days, but my car still revs when going up a hill or going over a bump?? any ideas to what it could be?

This happened to me before. You probably need to replace your mass air flow.

Car stalls when put in 'drive'

Check your air horn (big rubber boot) to the throttle body. It may have a crack on the underside and when you put it in drive and the engine torques to that side the crack opens and causes it to die.
