Several different reasons. It could be engine control devices going bad, or something with the bearings in one or more of the accessories; A/C compressor bearings, alternator bearings, etc. You should take your car to a tune-up shop and have it checked out.AnswerIf it is a bearing, you should be able to hear it. High wirring or grinding sound. Taking off the belt and turning/wobbling by hand will tell for sure. Usually sensors with computerized cars cause them to run bad. What a scam, huh? Instead of just lighting up a light as they go bad they cause the whole system to run bad. Do the standard check for wires fallen off/broken(run at night with lights off and hood open, look for blue arcing), vacume leaks, etc. Especially if it happened all at once. Heard Auto-zone has a dianostic check but call for sure.
One of the reasons for a 2003 Nissan Sentra to run rough and stall out when it comes to stop is a bad oxygen sensor. Another cause for the running rough could also be a dirty air cleaner.
I dont have the answer, but my 92 does the same thing
1989 Nissan Sentra Wagon 5 Speed intermittently wants to die out. Unless I give it gas it will stall. It will start back up again, with the same problem until problem stops. No pattern to diagnose.
Back in 2006, my Sentra with 78K miles was stalling and was cutting out while accelerating. The Nissan dealer found that the air flow sensor was failing. The part was about $200 with $270 labor. Please note that there are also several recall campaigns and one is on the crankcase position sensor which can go out and stall your car for good. Good Luck!
Check the Park Avenue EGR valve for a clog. A clogged valve can cause a rough idle and stall at a light.
The EGR valve or the Knock Sensor could be the problem here. Repairs run about $500.00 at a shop or do it yourself for about $250.00
Coolant temperature sensor. 20 bucks or so
Check fuel and spark
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.
no it will run rough and stall out
Check your spark plugs and leads.
A faulty fuel injector can cause your Ford Windstar to run rough and feel like it's going to stall. A dirty or plugged air filter can also cause the vehicle to stall.
you have a vacumn leak.
Check for a vacuum leak
If a 1999 Ford Range starts rough and wants to stall if not given extra gas, the fuel filter might need changed. If it becomes clogged, gas can not get through.
Your spark plugs.
Possibly the Head Gasket is blown.
Answer Its your EGR valve.Had the same thing constantly happen on my '93. Its your EGR valve that's sticking. Nissan uses a plunger type valve that's when sticks stalls the car. Find the valve (looks kind of like a spinning top) and while your car is running reach under and using your fingers move the plunger. This will stall your car. Replace the valve and drive happily ever after. This fix is definitely a DIY as it only takes a wrench and or ratchet..
Have the Ecm checked At dealers ( recall )
It stalls even when warm
check pcv hose elbow for vacuum leak.
vacuum leak,map sensor
This problem is in most cars, that is when running the AC on a hot day. There is a solenoid, or a solenoid and a valve to adjust the idle when the AC compressor kicks in so the engine will not die. My suggestion is check the vacuum hoses, as there is most likely one more more that are cracked or loose causing the problem.
Your a bad driver get a license
Need a bit more info. What motor and year? Are there any other symptoms?
