Running rich could be a sign of a bad coolant temperature sensor (the one that talks to the engine, not the temp sender, which talks to the dashboard). this can cause a warm stalling condition as you describe. there are several other possibilities but this one comes to mind first. if it runs ok when cold, but then does this after it warms up, then it probably is this (but not definitely)

Its probably back-firing in the intake - which means it is firing early or the fuel mixture is very lean.
This engine uses a distributor cap and rotor, so I would start there and make sure the cylinders are firing correctly.
If the ignition checks out ok, it could be a problem with the cam timing.

I have a nissan altima 95 unstable idle.when u shift to reverse mode the engine stop

Unfortunately, this is a problem with a thing called the idle step control (I.S.C.) motor. To prevent having chokes like we used to in the old days, the engine automatically adjusts the idle depending on engine temperature/load conditions. The I S C motor is the component that does this.

Sometimes if the battery dies or if there is a lto of carbon nbuildup (from unburnt fuel), this isc motor goes out of will have to take it to a mechainc where they will be able to rest the base idle settings and this adjustment as well.

2005 Nissan Altima cuts off while driving.

Dear Tajack73: Nissan had a voluntary recall campaign on the 2002,2005,2006 Altima's with the 2.5 litre engines It envolves reprogramming the ECM.
The campaign ID # RD0712 NHTSA #: 07V-527
2005 Altima Vin's 1N4AL11**5C 100003-957025
1N4AL11**5N 400000-934180

The symptom you have described fits the one they have describe in the bulletin. Check with Nissan and see if your car falls within the campaign. Let men know how you do.
