Replace the EGR valve.Its at the top/back of the engine.Also get the vacuum lines checked.If there is a vacuum leak then this can be the other possibility. Other possibility is TPS (Throttle position sensor).Throttle positioning sensor its located on the intake area (look where the throttle cable hooks to the engine). Also a faulty Idle Air Control motor (IAC) could cause the problem as you mentioned that it sometimes shuts off.
Once this is done, if the problem still exists, we can see if any codes are stored and go from there. Get car scanned at diagnosis center to get error codes, at diagnosis center you will receive the error code. As per the error code it will detect the exact faulty part in the car due to which the problem is occurring. For more help: --- at www.autozone.com it’s absolutely free to get car scanned.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

My 1994 Nissan Quest engine starts up properly and idles when cold. After the engine has been running for a while the idle is a little off every time I stop at a light or when it gets to about 1500 rpm....


Looks like you have a wire harness problem check your harness around the engine and see if there is any broken or making contact specially with the exhaust manifold also check you crank sensor and your fuel pump, because something is getting overheating.
Good luck.

Truck shuts off when going at slow speeds


Check the IAC VALVE,idle air control. It might be dirty and sticking,clean throttle body with intake cleaner make sure to spray in all openings in throttle body. If that doesn't work replace IAC VALVE. If you replace IAC VALVE make sure you clean opening good when IAC VALVE is out.

Have someone listen at the gas cap for the fuel pump humm when you first start the motor and keep listening if it stops hummimg. The piump may wok when there is low pressure in line and stop after build up of pressure.
