    I have a 1994 Nissan Quest van with the same problem. When coming to an abrupt stop, while climbing or descending hills or when making sharp turns, the vehicle shuts off. I place the car in neutral and most times, it starts right up. I have changed the distributor cap, plugs and wiring with no success.

Why does my car shut down while driving?


There might be a problem with the alternator, specifically the diode trio that is inside the alternator. Have your charging system checked. You can do it yourself if you have a voltmeter. Start car and check voltage across the battery terminals. You should get 14.5 volts or higher.

Car shuts off going down road


Honestly, it could be several things. For some reason the car could be losing power to the injectors, fuel pump or the ignition system. If you can get a mechanic to check it out, have him drive it down hill, because its probably the only way to figure it out for sure

My 97 maxima shuts off while driving only sometimes. completely unpredictable but only when in gear. three mechanics have not been able to figure it out. i do notice that its more prevalent when the engine...


i would be looking at the ignition switch it self. not the piece where you put your key, but the piece that is the electrical portion of the switch, which is on the back of the ignition switch assembly. you dp not need to replace the whole ignition switch assembly (mechanical part). you need the electrical switch only, which runs about $50. i would start there.

While driving all the dash lights (airbag,seatbelt,every warning light flashed) and the speed odometer and tach jumps back and forth for a second and everything went back to normal. The truck never missed...


I am not positive about my answer but I figured I would give my feedback anyways. It is possible that your alternator might be going out. In my experience, I had a '95 Maxima where, as I was driving, the battery and brake light would come on for a second and then it would turn off. A couple of days later, I needed a jump start. After driving down the road and after the car shuts off on me again (even after the jump), I realized that I needed a new alternator. Sure enough, the alternator solved the problem.

Engine Losses Power


It could be the TTC switch or the EGR valve it needs to go to a shop to see for sure.

Truck cuts off while driving down the road.


Replace the TFI module. Ford back in 1986 thur 1993 had problems like the one you wrote about. TFI module gets hot and shuts car or truck off then when it cools sometmies starts and sometimes not.
