Question about 1998 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

1998 Nissan Altima is stalling at red lights and stops

Car runs fine when it is cold. But as the day progresses, it stalls in stop and go traffic and at red lights. The check engine light is also on. I have given it a full tune-up, replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump, and had a loose screw tightened on the distributor. I also ran fuel injector cleaner through the engine but that seemed to make it worse. Runs fine maintaining speed.

Most likely solution is probably idle sensor.

I would check your intake gasket. Get your self ome carb cleaner in a spray form/can and perfrom this test. Run the car and spray the carb cleaner on your intake gasket which is right by your injectors. So pretty nuch spray it at the injector rail and listen fot change in idle, If the idle changes, the intake gasket is torn and you are running lean, because of a vaccum leak. Common problem on your model car. Perform test and let me know what you find.

Why is my 1998 nissan altima keep shutting off at stop light?


Does it lunge forward a couple times when stopping? (Acts like a standard that the clutch wasn't pushed in while trying to stop). If so There is a solenoid inside the transmission that may cause this. If not second guess may be that you have a vacuum leak somewhere. Does your engine run rough? Or High idle?

Car stalls at traffic lights and stop signs


There is a plastic tube that goes between the PCV valve and the intake manifold. Inspect the rubber elbow ends of this tube very carefully, they deteriorate and cause a vacuum leak that causes stalling. Sometimes you can hear them hissing while the engine is running. This is a very common problem.
