I have a 1994 Nissan Altima. It starts and idles fine. But it dies at stopsigns. It runs fine at highway speed. I just put a new distributor and timing chain on it. Any ideas?

1 Answer


Check for proper operation of the ISC (Idle Speed Controller) or IAC (Idle Air Controller) and the EGR valve. With ISC or IAC, I would go with the unit is not "disengaging" once the auto has warmed up. With EGR I would say it is clogged due to age, (once warm it would be "operating" during low speed operation) and not opening correctly.
