Do you happen to know what code is being stored?

Also, does it start right up after the stalling or does it have to cool off?

It sounds like you have a bad cam or crank sensor. If one of these stops sending the signal to the computer, it will stall and kill the engine. Since it won't always restart right away, that tells me one of these sensors is getting hot and the car has to cool before it's working again.

I would stop by a parts store and have the codes read. They do this free and this should tell you which one of these sensors should be replaced. This is a common symptom for both of the sensors, so I am sure it's one of them, just not sure which one.

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

That is wierd because sometimes it wont start even though the car sat all night
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Also if i remove air filter cover and allow straight air it stall instantly

That actually points more to a crank sensor then the cam sensor to be honest.

I am betting you have 2 codes in there. P0335 and P0725, both are for the crank sensor.

That just means the mass air flow sensor is working

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!
