SHUTS OFF

1997 Nissan Pathfinder

Engine Performance problem
1997 Nissan Pathfinder 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 147000 miles

my wife has a 1997 pathfinder. She states that when she is driving the car shuts off by itself while driving, then she puts it in neutral turns the key and it starts again. She says that it happens at least once a day

Hi rmanzo,

Does the engine stall only when the acccelerator is released?
Does it occur after the engine is at operating temperature or before it is fully warmed up?
What is the idling speed at initial start up and after warming up?
Is there any other issues such as hesitation, poor performance, jerking etc?
