Best Answer

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.

Why would a 91 Nissan Sentra 4-cylinder STD stall occasionally when coming to a stop?

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..

Why would a Nissan Sentra stall when idling at a stop light?

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.
