I have a 2002 Nissan maxima and the problem I am having is stalling out while at stops lights, while in idle and pretty much anywhere. My car gives no warning at all that it is stalling out.

I have took it in for a few diagnostic but I'm

anyone know what it could be?

Sounds like dirty/faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle plate. A bad iac will not always thro a code.

Ok. It also does not allow you to accelerate either before it stalls out. And my rpm is usually between the 0 and 1

But on the highway it runs normal? If so I would check into the iac and cleaning the throttle plate.
