Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
When this issue happened did the car bog down and loose power almost like it ran out of gas?
Also do you have a Service Engine Soon light on when the car is running?
Jumping like a Rev limiter?
Rev limiter the Rpm's would kind of bounce up and down like it can't go any faster.
I have a thought, but would just like to verify what you felt.
ok.. How handy are you? I have something I would like you to try. I encountered something exactly like this with my good friends Sentra when I was bring it to work to do some stuff for him.
Let me know.
What kind of Hill? Is it a Mountain or a hill?
Let me explain. My buddy when I was bringing his car to my job all of a sudden would not accelerate properly and was loosing power if I applied the gas to hard. What happened was he had a cheap air filter from one of those quick lube oil change places. These filters weather poorly and a bug actually passed through the filter and got on the MAF sensor heated element. So all I needed to do is use a can of CRC MAF sensor cleaner to clean the MAF sensor and that resolved the issue as well as put a factory air filter in of course.
This maybe something you would either want to try or have done. This part is very sensitive so if your not that handy, you may not want to try this. But I would recommend you try this first and see if it helps.

sorry, in case you don't under stand. The MAF ( Mass Air Flow ) sensor is what meters the air going into the engine so the computer can add the proper amount of fuel to the air mixture. A bug getting stuck on the headed element disrupts the air flow reading and throws off the mixture so the car won't accelerate properly and will jerk if the gas is applied to hard.
That is just a basic break down of what I said.
If it happens again, don't attempt to drive it and have car brought to your mechanic. Just make sure he cleans the MAF sensor. If he needs to replace it, make sure you get one from the dealer! Don't allow him to get it after market.

That is rare. If there is no codes, and you can communicate with the computer, I highly doubt it's a computer issue.
Did he check the air and fuel trim readings to see if there is a imbalance of air and fuel? That is the first thing you normally would check when there is no codes
That is where the scanner connects to the car
That won't cause the car to shut off, but if there is something wrong with the axle, it should be addressed.
I would have them do a Idle Relearn and make sure the air filter is good and clean.
