Hello my name Jay and thank you for your question.

Does this only happen when slowing down to a stop and at idle? Also how many miles on the car?

120000 miles and it happens when slow down and idle
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

This is what normally will resolve your issue. You need to clean your electronic throttle chamber with MAF sensor electrical cleaner. After you clean it, you then need to do a Idle Relearn. This will then calibrate the electronic throttle chamber so it can properly maintain base idle.

When I do the relearn will the cel light come on the the process
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

The best way to do a relearn is with a scanner. The CEL could come on indicating a P0507 which is a Idle Speed Control. Meaning it can't control base idle. That is why you need to do the idle relearn after you clean it.

doing the relearn the cel doesn't come on all the procedure online say it should blink and then go off
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 7 months ago

Let me get you the steps to do a manual relearn.. Hang on. It's a series of steps. It's tricky to do though. That is why I recommend a scanner. With a scanner you can see that the computer has accepted the relearn. When doing it manually, your hoping it too the relearn
