Why nissan xterra shuts off? driving about 50-60 mph and engine shuts off it does starts fine

It's probably in limp home mode. Check RPM dial most likely wont go past 2500-3000 RPM in any gear. This is for safety when the ECU find's almost any fault it will cut the engine to save damage. Get the ECU checked for fault's fix reset and it should run properly

Hi I have a vectra 2.2 dti when driving it its hesertion about 2500 rpm local garage said it was the egr I have put a new one on and the car is still the same

could be the cam sensor if it is the eco engine they sometimes don't throw a code up. but the rev amount is limp mode. best to change both sensors at same time cam and crank as they wear out at the same time. egr fault you will have no power and gray smoke pouring out the exhaust and bad smell of petrol.

When ever you get these waring lights it means the computer control module has sensed a fault in the systems many parts or wiring, in order to begin the diagnostics to repair the fualt the system must be scanned for fault codes. this is the number 1 first thing that must bwe done.

Car running on limp mode

  • Your MAF sensor is malfunctioning. You can try to unplug it and clean the contacts and plug it back in and see if that works. If not simply replace the MAF sensor. This is what causes limp mode in Nissan's.
  • You will probably have a P1102 code which will tell you "Traction Control Solenoid" which amounts to your MAF sensor is in range but lower than expected. Your vehicle is probably bogging out at RPM's that it normally functions fine at.
  • After you clean the contacts make sure to have Auto Zone reset the code for you. If your car goes into limp mode again just throw in a new MAF sensor and again have the computer reset at Auto zone (free).

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
