No check engine light? If so, what code? I had this happining in my 90 Cressida. It was the primary connection (12 volt) for the ignition coil. The bad connection caused it to heat up and disconnect. In my 84 Maxima, the fuel pressure regulator would not hold the correct pressure over 40mph and the engine would run out of fuel. Another regulator held too much pressure and the engine would flood when I slowed down. When it dies and you crank it, does the tach move? The signal for the tach comes off of the igniter. David
