If you have changed tire size ,this would be the cause,and a dealer would have to calibrate to fix the problem,if the tires have not be altered,then the reluctor in the transmission would be the cause,the transmission has to be gone into to fix the problem

You could have anything from a vacuum leak, idle speed solenoid, TPS. Get the ECM scanned, emissions test, by a second reputable tech. If u get the same answer (which I doubt) then go to the dealer. Or go straight to the dealer, Whichever is best for u. Good luck

My 96 nissan sentra shuts down at times in idle at stop light, allready installed new plugs roter and plug wires

Disconnect the air ducting between the air filter box and the throttle. Clean your throttle body interior with a cloth and plenty of carb choke spray (WD40 is good too). Idling is controlled by the engine's computer and the Idle Air Control Valve IACV . This device allows air passed the closed throttle plate when the engine is at idle. Locate the inlet port in front of the throttle plate in the inside wall of the throttle body. Locate the IACV on the outside of the throttle and remove it. Give it and associated passageways a really good clean. Make sure the valve and valve seat are free of crud. Re-assemble and this should cure the problem

The OBD-II system will reset the monitors or "flags" after about 30 miles of driving, and if the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Light) or "check engine light" has not come back on after that time it will be ready for an emission test.
