Oil in the distributor.
you have a vacumn leak.
Numerous things could cause the Nissan Altima to stall. One such thing is the idle control valve, also the exhaust system could cause the engine to stall.
Your spark plugs.
2001 missan altima emgine runs stall at a traffic light but engine does not cut off.
Have the Ecm checked At dealers ( recall )
If it's stalling while driving, it could be the problem with either the crankshaft positioning sensor or mass air flow sensor. Check to see if you have a check engine light on. If so, you need to retrieve the code from auto parts store. Only then you will be able to find out the actual problem.
I am having the same problem with a 1998 Nissan Altima. The engine runs fine at idle. When you press the gas the car stalls out. I'm down to replacing the gas pump in hopes of fixing this problem.
I am currently going thru the same thing. It is either the throttle plate or the recall that during engine movement causes the throttle-cable housing to pull out of its guide.
NicoClub.com has a forum post concerning this issue. In that post it does detail this condition as something other drivers have experienced, but it lends more towards aging components than to faulty engineering.

MAF or a bad spark plug, dirty fuel filters ... maybe needs a tune up
A 1998 Altima may stall at 2500 rpm's over a bad spark plug or plug wires.
Your a bad driver get a license
For starters change the fuel filter
replace the hose or gasket the is leaking, you can spray carb cleaner around the eng whil runnig to locate the leak the eng will try to stall
it can be if you keep driving your car like that. could end up buying a new engine.. it could be a crack cylinder FIX ASAP!!
Need to replace the ingnetion module in the distributor.
probably you have problem with fuel pump
There are several reasons an engine may stall while driving, here are three.The fuel tank is empty and the engine is starved of fuel.Not enough power to climb a hill causing a stall.Faulty or damp electronics on a petrol engine can also cause a stall.
If any vehicle stalls while driving it should be seen by a mechanic soon. It can be the a issues with the computer, ignition, or fuel.
It could be the fuel pump gone bad or the fuel filter is plugged. Ed
The engine in that is the 2.4 Ltr OHV. A drop in rpm and stalling could be a vacuum leak, fuel pressure regulator or clogged fuel filter. Also a bad or leaking PVC valve will cause those symptoms. I restore a clot of these and they are great cars.
Any number of things. Take the car and have it checked by a Tune-up shop.
Because you can't drive a stick, and its a hard carto drive stickin and first is geared lower.
