Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima
First replace fuel filter and check the air filter. next if it still does it you need to clean the throttle plate using a tooth brush and top engine cleaner, you also need to teat fuel rail pressuer, if this does not fix the problem then the idle set screw needs to be adjusted. Also if you own a timing light check to see if the timing mark is jumping around, these cars tend to lose the distributor drive pin, it's a easy fix but wanted to make you aware of it. Do not adjust the idle valve till you know that that catalytic converter is ok.

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
