Vehicle shuts down while driving down road and does not start backup for at least 20 minutes, could be a bad crank sensor. if bad it will start and run fine, but it will keep shutting down until fixed.

    I had a similar problem and it ended up being the ignition switch. It is a $55 part from napa or oreilly and is located in the steering column. Just take off the plasic behind the steering wheel and you'll find it. Disconnect your negative terminal on the battery first, unplug the iginition switch, take out the 2 screws and replace. 5 minute job.

My 1994 5-speed manual Pathfinder sputters and jerks when it's cold


Here are the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle, 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

Starting fine, driving fine, but dies while going down the road


Next time disconnect the negative and not the positive if it ever happens again. This happened due to the PCM needing to be reset.
