2002 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE Shuts off while driving

Asked by Sep 27, 2012 at 08:40 PM about the 2002 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Nissan 3.5 SE. While driving the car just shuts off. It has been starting back and I normally don't drive further than 10 miles at one time. It is doing this nearly every time I drive it now normally after 10-20 min of drivetime. The crankshaft sensor that was supposed to be replaced per recall was done in 2008. I've had the same thing happen with cars in the past and it was twice an oxygen sensor. Can it be diagnosed?

Can you explain in detail what you mean by it shuts down? Does it start running rough first? Or does it just die? Do you have lights, radio, etc? How long before it allows you to restart it?

that's about what my 06 is doing, but the drive times have been a little longer, mine died easy, barley noticed it died, but again both times *thankfully* it happened as I was parking.
