Hello. My Nissan Quest can start and drive normal, but when it time to shut off the engine the ignition turn off but it felt very loose and engine keep running. My question is how to take the steering wheel off to get to the ignition linkage.

I worked on a '93 Quest last year. Couldn't find out why it wouldn't start. It was the distributor shaft not held onto its rotating gear. The roll pin had come out of the gear on the end of the distributor shaft. When the distributor cap was off, the rotor was turning with the shaft while the engine was cranking. So I thought that was okay. But when I put my finger on the rotor and it stopped turning, that is when I found out the problem. It's a stretch, but maybe the techs missed it. Take the cap off, and if you can spin the rotor either way just by hand, the distributor gear has come loose.
Looks like they really covered a lot. I suppose next they will you to replace the ecu. Good luck.
does it do it all the time or when you first start it after it sat for a period of time, if sat a long time something is draining your battery, comething with the charging system or a bad relay that does not shut off
CAUTION: Parking brake control should be applied. Depress the parking brake pedal, and warm the engine to the normal operating temperature.
Turn off all electrical loads.
Start the engine and rev it to 2000-3000 rpm two or three times and allow the engine to return to the idle.
Check the idle speed. The idle speed should be between 700-800 rpm in PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N) position.
NOTE: Make sure that the timing pointer is pointing to the 15° Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on the crankshaft pulley. Each notch on the crankshaft pulley represents 5 degrees. Check the ignition timing with a timing light.
If the marks are not aligned, loosen the distributor bolt and turn the distributor to make the adjustment. The ignition timing should be between 13°-17° BTDC.
Had the same problem with 1999 Quest - turns out that the distributor was going until it finally died. It stuttered andf kept shutting off when driven about 20 miles or so. Would start normally when cooled and off again when hot. But yours could be a different problem; not sure.
