You need to stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc..) and have them do an OBII scan (fault scan) They do this free. They will pull codes and it will identify what's causing your miss issues.

Your vehicle has a bad misfire that could damage the catalytic converter. That's why the service engine soon light flashes . If you drive it like that it will damage the cat. Have towed to the repair shop . Flashing Check Engine Light CarMD

Frm beginning of 2004 nissan maxima ABS problem to present want threw car wash ABS and Brake lites came on on the dash. checked rear sensors 1 worn so replaced sensor and hub assemble and did the recall...

can you do me a favor just unplug the abs module lead, and check that part first then get back to me on here. it is very rare that an abs sensor fails. its always down to the wiring plugs. and a car wash will throw the water in the engine bay, not like road water and any seal that are weak or cracked will be the first problem. plus engine dieing is a good sing the abs unit is not working at all. bad part is if the unit is not completely damaged. if the engine starts without the abs plugged in. but will not when its plugged in. can be a problem with the abs control unit board.

Have the trouble codes read and they will tell you what is wrong and needs to be fixed on your car. Most larger auto parts store will scan the codes for free and give you a printout of what's wrong.

Engine dies at random...Highway and idle.

do not think vacuum hose is teh issue. When ws last time you replaced fuel and air filter? Couls also be failing fuel pump, so need to check output pressure. If check engine light comes on may be in air polution control system. Need to pull code and see what circuit is causing the fault code. Sometimes an auto zone will read code for free.
