Question about 2000 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

I have a nissan 2000 nissan altima SE. Sometimes when I drive over a bump in the road the car jerks like it wants to stall. After going over a bump, it has shut off on me and then it happened again after I went over a bump. What can cause this?

    I've tried that. Got nothing. I've taken it to midas, they plugged it up to a hand held computer and could not find anything wrong. They test drove it. Went under the hood. Nothing. Do you have any more suggestions?

There is probably a loose electrical connection to the ignition. These types of problems are very hard to track down. My best suggestion is to open the hood and kinda smack the wiring harnesses and see if you can get the car to die. This will help identify where to loose connection is.

    There is a fuel shut off switch in case of accident. But you have to manually reset it. So it is not that. It would have to be a loose connection. Does it die every time you hit a bump? Or is it just every once in a while?

01 Nissan Altima check engine light code p0740


Classic engine miss. The cause might be a faulty injector, or more likely an issue with ignition. Start it at night in the dark and look for arcing- that is the area to start. Plug wires and ignition components.

Car jerks on freeway and engine shuts off.


It sounds like your Mass Air Flow Sensor is faulty. These sensors will normal show fault when cruising at highway speeds causing the vehicle to almost stall or stall. Replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor with a known good one and test drive the vehicle. This will most likely repair your concern.

I just had the same problem with my '02 altima SE.
Took it to Buckeye Nissan in Hilliard OH. and they had to replace the two crank sensors which.
The sensors themselves were about $44.00 a piece, but w/labor about $300.00 was the total. Hope this helps.....Now if I can just get the heater working!
