Occasional lurching and dying upon start-up or shifting into reverse or drive.


I would look at the alternator. With everything that is going wrong it all comes down to charge. It would seem that the alternator is only working part time as it is on its way out. I am guessing that as you are driving it is only charging the battery sometimes and other times it is not charging the battery causing your issues. The alternator can be checked at any parts store for free without taking it out.

sounds like a fuel problem, how many miles on vehicle? as a quick fix it would be worth using a fuel addative , you haven't said if petrol or diesel, if petrol get addative that covers the catalytic converter ,having a blocked exhaust system can cause engine to stall also get the OBD codes read as this will tell you what if any sensors/switch's are faulty

Have the engine checked for vacuum leaks, that will cause a high idle speed. As a 35 year veteran of auto repair I can tell you that engine flushs are a 100% waste of your hard earned money.

1995 Maxima idling at 400 rpms. No diagnostic code.


If a mouse chewed the wire into you may need to check all the wires. It sounds like you need to check the operation of the idle air control valve and it's wiring circuit. Good fortune!

1984 toyota pickup, 22R engine, stalls out when driving 2-8 miles


I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the rubber fuel lines being old and cracked. The hoses would warm up and fuel would squirt out of the cracks. I had to replace three fuel line hoses and it has been running great ever since. Good luck.
