I experienced the same phenomenon and discovered from extensive research of forums that the MAF sensor is well-known for failure and the symptom is stalling at low rpm's (below 1200). Mine would act up intermittently and I wasn't sure why the sensor wouldn't just fail altogether... (which made me think maybe it was a fuel filter problem or other...) then I discovered that a wire had been spliced onto the center wire entering the plug which plugs into the sensor. The stiff bead of solder had been flexing the strands of copper wire through normal engine vibration and torque and, over time, several strands had broken. If there had been 10-12 strands altogether, there were only 3 or so when I discovered it... and just a little fiddling around left the frayed and slightly corroded bit of wire in one hand and the plug with the other wires in the other.

It took some doing, but I eventually reattached the wire to the little scrap remaining and the stalling (which had forced me under the hood to begin with) stopped.

I don't know if this splice is a Nissan thing or if some "mechanic" felt it necessary to splice into the line so closely to the plug, but it can't hurt to check out the same on yours. If it's determined that your MAF is defective, I've heard they can be cleaned with contact cleaner (not brake or carb cleaner) before you drop the big bucks on a replacement (which is usually available every couple weeks on eBay). Also make sure your air filter is clean and your hoses aren't cracked. Clogged filter or unmetered air can cause issues as well.

Gravity itself does not slow things down (the Moon still keeps going round the Earth and the Earth still keeps going round the Sun). It's friction that slows things down. I have to say that there is likely to be more friction if there's more gravity but that's a secondary effect.

Paint keeps oxygen from reaching the iron. With no oxygen you can't have rust.

Inertia. In outer space, there is hardly anything to slow a moving body down, in the sense of friction, so a moving body keeps moving.

A parachute and solid rockets were used to slow it down as it went through the atmosphere and airbags were used to cushion the impact.

I think you mean slow down and speed up. slow down =slow, speed up=fast

It depends is your computer already slow prob. If is not slow it's probably not going to slow down but it will not slow down the internet

Cutting back on the use of electric appliances will help slow down air pollution, which will slow down global warming. SAVE THE EARTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (hey, that's what my shirt says right now! go figure!)

cars slow down because of friction and when you push the brake pedal you automatically slow down

Kind of. It's hard to explain. You will slow down, your common sense will not be as good. It does slow you down, but not by alot.

Is your car equipped with an ABS system? That keeps the vehicle from locking the brakes to prevent skidding. The brakes automatically "GRAB" on and off to slow without skidding

Cutting Speed :- Rate at which point on work circumference travels past cutting tool.It always express in feet/min.and if it is too high cutting tool breaks down rapidly and if too slow low production rate occurs. Feed :- The distance that cutting tool advances along the length of work piece for every revolution of the spindle.

There is no friction in space to slow them down.
