On certain vehicles overheating of the crankshaft position sensor may cause  the vehicle to shut down due to an interruption of signal to control unit.

Nissan will notify customers of affected vehicles beginning December 31, 2007. If you have not been notified, your car is randomly shutting off and feel your car falls under this recall. You should contact your local dealership. It is helpful to have your VIN Vehicle Identification Number ready when doing so.
