Question about 2003 Nissan Maxima
My car has had a problem of quitting on me when I am at a red light or stop sign. It will restart, but then happens over and over. I had this problem fixed once, but it returned yesterday. It seems to hapen when it is hot out, rather than cold. I live in SF, which is usually pretty mild, but I am in LA and it is in the 90/100s. The car was looked at by a nissan dealer in the spring - the las time I got it fixed. I can't remember the technical terms. Have you heard of this before?

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
