Why does 02 Sentra randomly stall?

Asked by PattyIce Feb 18, 2022 at 02:44 PM about the 2002 Nissan Sentra GXE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 sentra gxe and I've been having problems with it for the longest
time. Sometimes when I come to a stop after a few moments it stalls and I
have to restart the car, sometimes it happens when I'm turning or just
randomly as I drive? I suspect its a fuel issue and my Sentra actually died
recently and won't start up again, which I troubleshoot enough to think its
indeed a fuel pump issue but what do these symptoms sound like to you
guys? ill provide more Information if needed, thank you guys

Did you check the fuel pressure? Scan for trouble codes with an OBDii scanner?

The fact that the engine stalls and restarts again leads me to suspect that the problem is a just bad ignition switch.

You've had this problem for the longest time? You're way more tolerant than you should be. A fix is probably simple and you're enduring this for no reason.
