    best would be a trip to your local dealership to give the car a full diagnostics, so you dont run round in circles, they should be able to identify if it is one or more problems.
    from there you can then decide if the fuel system needs a clean out or what other problem has caused this.

My radio and windshield wipers go out on 98 Maxima

I have the same problem with a 2000 Mitsubishi. My mechanic can't figure it out. I do find that the wipers and radio come back on when I jiggle the key. A friend told me that he had the same problem with a Nissan and the problem was in a switch in the ignition.

Every 30,000 miles you need an air filter, every 60,000 a fuel filter, every 100,000 spark plugs. That's it.
