Question about 1987 Nissan Maxima
Hi... My 1988 Nissan Maxima it started to surge at stop signs, and then sometimes die. So I changed the pressure regulator and the fuel temperature sensor. It helped some. Then I started having problems with the throttle switch. The car wouldn't idle. I replaced the switch with no luck. It ran worse. It ran rough, then died. No fuel getting to the fuel injectors. The pump runs, but weak. I replaced that too. The new pump runs louder than the old, no fuel delivery. Lines are not pluged (both) from the tank and return. Rechecked fuseable links and fuses, connections etc. I tried putting a little pressure in the tank to force the fuel out, some fuel came through, but not enough. Fuel system is not pressurizing.Tank is full of fuel. Was there a recall on the injectors? Car will not start. Any assistance would be great. Thanks.
Could be the Mass airflow sensor, but more than likely an obstruction just past the air mass sensor that is causing the engine to die at idle- no airflow across wires that are heated to detect the flow.Cars this old will develop obstructions in the airflow region.Also change air filter while repairing.

It might be the mass air flow sensor
