When my car nissan xterra is warmed the engine shut off


I have a customer with a 2000 Nissan Xterra 3.3 liter V6 with 180k miles. He stated that while driving on the highway the vehicle is fine. Once he exits the highway and drove on surface streets the engine stumbles, sputters and shuts down when he stops. The fuel pump is located under the right side rear seat. I removed the inspection cover to view the electrical connections. No problem there. I drove the vehicle for approx 20 minutes and it hesitated a little but not enough for me to come to a good conclusion. I needed the engine to heat up some more so I drove to Panda Express for lunch. I got my lunch to go, return to the vehicle and started the engine to eat while the engine idled. After my lunch was over I drove back to my customer's house. On the way God bless me with what I was searching for...the engine started to sputter. To shorten this story I replaced the distributor with a brand new assembly from AutoZone($233.65). Once I removed the factory distributor I spun it by hand and that's when I could feel that bearings were rough & worn.
Problem solved and my customer is happy.

2000 ferrarri 456 gt m-engine code was in history of maf airflow meter left side -ferrari dealer hasswitched from left to right and still has problem. Check engine lite only came on once since driving...


According to what you explain, there is some maf sensor defective or disconnected, the ferrari engine has high compression and forces the fuel to mix with the engine oil, this produces loss of oil pressure.
Check if the oil smells of fuel, check the sensor connections, also check the engine controller
