Engine cutting off

Engine Performance problem V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles

My truck keeps cutting off, it will drive fine, then the rpm will drop and the truck will cut off. Let it sit for 10 or so mins and it will start up. Drive maybe 5-15 miles and then it will do the same thing again. Tried 93 gas and I depressed the fuel value in the engine and no fuel, not a drop and no air came out.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

It sounds like you have a classic crankshaft angle sensor that is going out. Here is a guide to show you what you are in for when changing the sensor and a diagram (below) of how to change the sensor on your car.

2005 Nissan Armada V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 115, 00 miles

I have read that others have had the same question. The engine cuts out while trying to accelerate. Seems the engine is not getting fuel. Pull over and let it sit while engine off for a few minutes and then it will run fine for a little while until it happens again. I know on the 05 models that the fuel filter is inside the fuel tank. Are there known issues with this problem and is there a fix?

Car just died. Was towed home and sat for two days then ran fine for a week. Died again. Taken to mechanic they said they wiggled the fuse to fuel pump and it ran. Drove it about four miles and it died again. Taken back to shop and they say they cant fix it. It will start then die within a few seconds.

Sounds like a typical failing fuel pump, if it is a problem with the power supply this should be easy to fix, this mechanic does not sound like they want to help, or they just don't know there job, go find a mechanic ready to help, this should not be a huge problem.
