Could be a lot of issues. Could be a fuel delivery issue, a sensor or coil malfunctioning, or the PCM itself. Have this diagnosed by a dealership as there are far too many possibilities on a modern car to answer a question like this without going over the vehicle thoroughly first.

shuts off while driving you say,,,,its not fuel delivery nor PCM.....I believe it oxygen sensor,,,it gradually deteriorates ,,so replace it.....if it is fuel or PCM problem your not going anywhere even during start up is a problem......O2 sensor is around 67CD....should replace it ....every 60,000km.

I have 2013 Nissan Altima that shuts off while driving…I have taken it to Nissan to repair seven times and they can’t repair it...

shutting off while driving will not be an o2 sensor as the o2 and air fuel ratio sensors are for emissions and do not affect the running of the car to the point that it'll shut off. most common reason for this is the camshaft and crankshaft sensors but could also be a fuel issue, ecm ( no pcm in this car), or even something as simple as spark plugs. is there any codes?


When the hook the car up to the scanner they say come up.
