SOURCE: Engine Stalls while driving

I had a similar problem with my SAAB 9-5; It was the crank sensor. (I'm not sure if nissan works the same way). Crank sensor suppose to send a signal to fuel injector reporting the RPM. if it's cracked, it would report a lower voltage( less than 800 RPM) when it heats up, making the gas line think that the car is shut off. therefore, gas stops flowing to the injector causing the car to stall. That's how it works in SAAB. Lets hope that's true for Nissan. Good luck.

SOURCE: 96 NISSAN MAXIMA SHUTS OFF UPON DECELLERATION OR WHEN STOPPED

Check to see if the floor on the passanger side is wet. If so, than your A/C drain clogged up and your ECM/computer got flodded by water causing all sorts of funky stuff happening. Right next to the gas pedal is a small cover attached to the computer. It has a clip in it. Remove the clip and tug on the cover. Look at the top of the computer to see if its rusted up. Remove the other side cover also, which is on passanger side floor next to your left foot(if you sitting in passenger seat). and check other side of ECM/computer. Check the ECM for rust on top.
If ALL of that looks OK, than I would replace the switch,(since you are telling me that the key got VERY hot) that is mounted on the back of the ignition cylinder. Its a white round switch that failes after a while especially car beeing 1996, just think about how many times that ignition has been turned ON/OFF since 1996. The mechanism in the switch failes, causing starting issues and funky electrical issues.
Does the car have a remote starter installed?? Or didi it have one in the past?? I have seen companies that install them cause some damage to the harnesses on the switch that is mounted to the back of the igniton cylinder. They use "scotch locks" to connect the remote starter and after a while the connection corrode and cause problems too.
Anyways, check the computer for rust first. Than I would install that switch on back of the igniton. You can buy the switch seperately. You dont need the whole ignition assembly/switch only. Switch is pretty cheap (approx $50 ?). Try that and post results. I would feel pretty good about the switch beeing faulty. I have ssen them fail in the past and that's where your power comes into for the starter circuit.(key getting HOT, switch shorting out, making the key hot and starting the car without the key)

SOURCE: my nissan maxima stalls

My 1995 Maxima does the same thing everybody discribed: stall at low speed or at stop or traffic light, rough start... The car is running normally then the RPM drops, goes up, drops... when I push the accelerator, the car don't accelerate. 50% of the time, it's stall. Then I swear a lot ...

So, I just changed my fuel filter, but I won't go for a new fuel pomp if it didn't work for the others.

Please help me!!

Try leaving your cell phone at home and driving around. Cell phones and other devices many times will try using speaker wires as an extension of their antennae which is RF interference and therefore the sound of this crackling can go through your speaker system. This can happen at home or in a car.

I have a 96 nissan maxima and check engine light came on was told it was the knock sensor and the 02 sensor while driving the car cuts out like it stops getting fuel what could it be


Numerous issues can cause the CEL to display and there are also many reasons why the engine would stall. You need to take the cat to a competent Nissan mechanic who will scan the engine for fault codes and the diagnose the engine issues from there.Without running tests on the car no one here can give you an accurate assessment of the specific problems you have with that engine. There are no easy cheap fixes for these kinds of problems.

I would start with checking the computer for trouble codes.
Sounds like a bad connection in the dash wiring or key switch, but the trouble code might steer you in the right direction.
