The cars starts fine...

The cars starts fine but when I put it in drive it stalls and loses all power. I have a 2000 Infinity Qx$

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

Oope Qx4

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your QX4 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No - I took it to my mechanic

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

He said he tried replacing the sensor but that didn't work

My mechanic said the distributor was heavily corroded so he cleaned the rust out and it seemed to run fine. I drove it to the mall and on the way back - it stalled again. No warning lights. When I stopped for a red light it stalled. I got it to start again, but then as I was driving - it seemed to hesitate a few times when I stepped on the accelerator and then stalled. It would start and I wou
l'd put it in gear and then it would stall after doing this a few times - it failed to start right away.
Also he said he changed the sensor but that didn't work either - it kept stalling.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
