No you shouldn't have to. Do you have a light on the dash that is on?

There is no check engine light on. The car will drive for about 25 miles then lose all power. It will stay running but no response when you press the gas pedal. You have to stop shut it off and start again.

There is a Throttle Positioning Sensor on the side of the throttle body that adjusts the fuel when you step on the gas. Also there is a module down somewhere by the gas pedal that coincides with the TPS. Either one of these could be the problem. The TPS can be checked at a Auto Zone if it were to be taken off. I'm not sure how to test the module.

Turns out that after 3 alternators finally took it to nissan dealer and had them replace it. It runs better than ever now. Stay with nissan parts instead of auto zone.
