Nissan Maxima stalling/poor acceleration from stoplight

I have a 1996 Nissan Maxima GLE that has 207000 loving miles on it. This past week she has begun to hesitate when accelerating from a full stop and yesterday stalled at a stoplight for no apparent reason. No engine warning light. No funny sounds. Still runs fine 80% of the time. Only seems to happen after the engine is warmed up. Recently moved to an extremely hot, dusty, climate (Phoenix, AZ) and rarely used the A/C before here. Any suggestions? Heading to the shop tomorrow, but don't know of any good ones. Are there any online resources that can help me locate a good one that won't rip me off?

Had the same problem--found a very loose clamp on vacuum line. I believe it was accidently loosened as it sits right next to clamp from the top fuel line coming from the fuel filter. The filter was changed a couple thousand miles ago. It was right where the top fuel hose from the filter attached to the engine. With the clamps sitting together--it may have been loosened while changing the filter.

Maxima in 1996 didn't really have a problem with the air flow meters. I would see if the computer on top is clean. Se if you can get any water from the heater box/A/C box. There is a drain tube, that clogges up and water will leak onto your ECM/computer, flooding it. Ckeck your floor on passenger side right by the fire wall. Make sure that is dry. Let me know what you find.

What kind of oil I should use for a 98 nissan maxima gle

depending on how many miles you have on it.

usually 10W30 for cars around that year. (if you fill it with thinner oil the engine might make clicking sounds, and thicker oil might clog up the engine)
