Nissan Pathfinder Engine Stall and/or No Start Condition

(15 reports)

The distributor shaft bearing can become rusty, and seize causing the engine to stall or not start. The failed distributor will commonly require replacement.

during the 80's in the day my car stalls. i have to pull over and wait a couple or more minutes and it will start again. But i can drive a while and it will stall again. i replaced fuel filter and it still happens. I just happened earlier when i was idling for 3 minutes.
