I had a very similar problem with my 1996 Nissan truck. New plugs, wires, distributor and rotor only partly solved the problem. Then I replaced the O2 sensor and the probelm disappeared completely. Had 130K miles on the truck when replaced and the O2 sensor was shot.

2 rpms? Your automobile engine probably runs around 2000 rpms. At 2 rpms the engine would stall and stop. However, many automatic transmissions jerk a little bit as they shift gears. I suspect this is what is happening to your Pathfinder.
