Question about 1996 Nissan Pathfinder
The car loses power but not to the point of shutting off. When you apply the gas, the car sputters. This is at it's worst, when running "errands" and have to start the car and drive multiple times in a short span of time. It needs to sit for awhile in order to work better....

Change your Coolant Temperature Sensor. This will fix it! I've seen a few of these. It is failing intermittently and telling the engine it's at -127 degrees Centigrade. The engine management responds by enriching the mixture dramatically to the extent that a hot engine will not start or idle. You can probably smell the fuel at the tailpipe when you can't start it.

SOUNDS LIKE THE IDLE AIR VALVE IS CARBONED UP TRY SPRAYING CARBURETOR CLEANER INTO AIR INTAKE AT THE THRUTTLE BODY WHILE HOLDING IDLE SPEED AROUND 1500 TO 1900 RPMS USUALLY AFTER SPRAYING FOR SEVERAL MINUTES ABOUT HALF A CAN THE PROBLEM WILL BE FIXED ...IF THIS DOES NO GOOD YOU MAY HAVE TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER TO HAVE THE IDLE SPEED REPROGRAMED IN THE ECM WITH THE DEALERS DIAGNOSTIC SCAN TOOL....USUALLY FOR AROUND 50 TO 60 BUCKS HOPE THIS HELPS
