stalling when i come to an abrupt stop
1995 Nissan Pathfinder - 3.0L V6 20,000 mi,
My car would not idle when my foot was not on the gas. This was an intermittent problem for years and the dealer replaced sparks, etc never correcting the problem. I found a mechanic that detected that it was a faulty airflow sensor and bought a salvaged part this fixed the problem.
