I own a 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8 and when I drive my car, suddenly with no warning it begins to decelerate and when I press the gas pedal nothing happens, this happens randomly from a quick run to the local store to a three hour drive home from school, what the heck is going on. It will decelerate steadily to 20 mph first and then slowly decelerate until 10 mph and then finally roll to a stop.
Do you
have the same problem?

I had a similiar problem. 2004 sentra 1.8 you be driving and just would die. Dealer had it for about two weeks changing parts after parts. Finally a tech said change the alternator even though it is reading fine. Haven't had a problem since. Threee different places checked the charging system and all said fine.
