Is the check engine light on when it's running?

no warning lights at all, 39,600 miles, still under warranty.

Thanks for the info.

This sounds like a problem with the mass air flow sensor. It could be causing the issue especially at idle. Also, if the battery has gone flat or been disconnected it's possible the throttle body needs a relearn on it.

I would have the dealer take a look at the info from the maf sensor first though. It's the most likely culprit to be honest.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

What Customers are Saying:

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!
