Why will a maxima just die idling or running down the road, wait a minute and start right back up every time, checked fuel, spark, comprssion, pip signal and all dtcs. Come up cat and o2 sensor, so replaced both and no change,

data logger is still showing crank and cam signal when it dies and still has fuel pressure while dead, but a minute later will start back up

Scn for codes and check fuepressure first. Fp shold be 34 psi with vacuum and 43 without unless it's a 1.8L california model which should be 51 psi with vacuum also try cleaning throttle plate on both sides with choke cleaner as well as iac hole if you have one.
