Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The knock sensor will not cause stalling. It will not even turn on the Service Engine Soon light. Is the Service Engine Soon light on when the truck is running?

no, the light is not on ever, auto zone told me the code
could a bad mass meter boot leaking be a problem?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
3 month ago I had a relay switch above the gas tank replaced, wire was courroaded, also changed spark plugs and wires and new distributor cap 2 months ago. All was ok until last week

What do you think could cause truck to stall when stopping or in low idle?

If there is no other code, there is a few things it could be...

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

When the truck stalls, does it stall like it ran out of gas, or like someone turned of the ignition?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
like not getting enough gas, the rmp goes below 1000, if I keep my foot on gas and brake when stopped, I can sometimes keep going.

The Mass Air Flow Sensor is most common cause when there is no codes and stalling issues. I would also check the Air intake Duct for any rips. Un-metered air can also cause it to stall as well.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

Other than the MAF sensor. The distributor is the other thing that can cause stalling with out throwing codes some times. It's going to be one of the 3 things though.

When it comes to electrical parts, I strongly recommend you get them from the dealer. After Market electrical parts never work right.
