Check for a intake leak around the intake , spray brake cleaner around the intake if it has a leak it will idle up or burn white smoke, also could be mass air flow sensor thet are known for going bad on nissans

It don't stall all the time it only does it once in a while but before I changed the plugs it would jerk real hard like the engine was going to fall the I would take my foot off the gas and it would stall then start back up then it will be fine
