Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

can you tell me the code #s?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
P0101 mass air flow sensor. Would this cause the car to idle roughly and shut down? When the traction control light comes on, the car will not Rev above 2500rpm. If you get above 2500 rpm, the car will shut itself down.

2011 maxima sv, code is P0101
Nissan Mechanic: Mike V., Nissan Technician replied 28 days ago

Yes, this does sound like a maf sensor issue. There is a fuel cut at 2700 rpms, when the computer can't make the right fuel mixture to match the reported air flow it will shut off the fuel injectors at about 2700 rpms. This is why you can't get on it. If you remove it, you may be able to see where it burned out. You are likely going to have to put a new one in, and I caution you to use a factory part from the dealer or you may find you have the exact same issue.

Sorry I didn't see this yesterday, but I don't work Sundays.

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