Question about 1996 Nissan Altima
Nissan Altima 5 speed. Was teaching daughter to drive , car bucked pretty good in 1st gear and died. Car wouldnt start after that. Next day car starts but very rough idle and when you step on gas the car dies. Car ran fine prior to this. Any ideas what happened?
It'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

She might have slipped a tooth on the timing belt/pully combo. Seems like a timing/valve train problem. The very rough 1st gear start could have done it--how many miles were on the timing belt? A fatigued timing belt will slip, and one or two teeth will knock the valve train and ignition out of whack.

Engine stalls or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. 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
