Question about 1994 Nissan Altima

Open Question

My nissan shuts off when i put it in gear. it had died on me a couple times before while driving however that was intermitent. every couple of weeks or so. but now all the time. when i first turn it on it runs fine but after a few minutes it acts up. while in park in will stay on and even accelerates as long as i do it slowly, if i push the pedal too fast it dies out. when i put in in drive SOMETIMES it stays on but as soon as i try to accelerate it completely dies out. I was going to replace the fuel pump but now i am unsure since it stays on and accelerates, and i dont wanna start throwing parts at it. IM FRUSTRATED ! ! ! !

SOURCE: Intermittent power loss after accelerating hard

Sounds like a fuel delivery problem! Try filter first (cheapest), then the pump
Hope this helps, Henry

SOURCE: Cruise Control, intermitent wipers acting up.

More then likely, the switch arm will have to be replaced, everything that contyrols your wipers and cruise are built into that left arm.

I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Nissan 300ZX Fuel problem

I had an 82 280zx and now a 90 300zx, in both cars the fuel pump relays were located in the engine compartment, in the fuse boxes, as long as you can read the covers over the fuses, they are clearly marked.
2nd no fuel at filter would either be faulty pump or relay. All that the regulator does is regulate the pressure to the injectors and keep them consistant.

SOURCE: my 1999 nissan maxima has a rough idle and some time dies at idle

It may be throttle position sensor or camshaft sensor. Most likely the throttle sensor.

I have a 1996 Nissan 200sx coupe while I was driving the car died when Itied to restartit would just turn over without starting,but whenIhold clutchin it turnsover but when you letout clutchitcatches

Need the codes read first. A lot of times it's the crank sensor. Could be a timing belt. Remove a couple bolts on the timing cover and pull it back some. It should be tight on the cam gear. If so, Hold the cover(being careful) and have some one crank the engine over, watch to see if the cam gear turns.

2006 Sportage. Why does it shut down randomly?

Many possibilities. The fact that it starts right back up does eliminate some issues though. Probably best to use a scan tool that allows real time data while driving to catch the exact failure. Could be dirty IAC or EGR. Could be wiring/connection fault. Could be signs of soon to fail fuel pump.

05 Altima dies while at low speed

Forget about the Nissan dealer and take your vehicle to one of the auto parts suppliers to have a diagnosis made, then find a competent mechanic to confirm the diagnosis and make necessary repairs.
