My 1997 Nissan Quest will start nicely and ride good for about 10 -15 minutes and then dies . All attempt to restart it will fail. If left over several hourd (5-6 hours) or overnite, it will start and runs beautifully for 10-15 minutes and then dies again. This is a reoccuring problem. Any solution to this nagging problem?

thinkin' the TPS....where man meets machine~

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

if it didn't idle well would think about an idle air control~

there is a temp sensor and an EGR temp sensor too~

cryptic as they are your diagnostic codes will reveal P1030 for example, we will look them up and tell you what to replace~...okay~?

any autoparts store will do this for free...double back right away so you don't spend any money with them but can tell US what is going on....thanks~
