Try the Mass Airflow Sensor. I replaced that for similar symptoms. My crankshaft sensor went next. Both made it nearly 200K miles.

Did you use a Nissan/OEM crank sensor? Too many reports of aftermarket sensors being rejected by the finicky VQ40 'brain'.

Can you please explain this one a little further?? Electrical part of ignition?.
The ignition switch on a vehicle can wear especially if you have a lot of keys and weight on the keychain. You can have it move just enough to lose the connection needed to keep a vehicle running and it stall. I believe GM had a recall a few years back and they said to keep the other keys separate because of wear.

2007 Nissan Frontier LE - same issue. Stalls while driving. Or drops to 0 RPMs but recovers - then runs rough for a bit. Beyond frustrated - I just needed a safe and reliable vehicle. Yes, it was hot weather outside and both times had filled gas tank to the hilt. Afraid to drive on freeway or anywhere I need to be absolutely certain I'll arrive at.

Tali... Welcome to Club Frontier. Sorry to hear that you are having issues with your truck. When your truck acts up, does it trigger the Check Engine Light on the dash? If so, have you had the chance to connect an OBD II Diagnostic Scanner to the OBD II port located underneath your driver side dashboard and view the Diagnostic Trouble Codes kicked out by the OBD II Scanner?

If you haven't had the chance to, or don't own an OBD II scanner, take a drive to your local auto parts store, (O'Reilley's, Pep Boys, Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, Napa, etc.), and see if they will read the codes for you for free. Once you are able to download the codes check them against the codes listed in the Nissan Factory Service Manual - see attached link for a free download.

Once you figure out what the problem is, create a NEW Discussion / Post & we will be more than happy to help you if we can. Your problem can possibly be due to a bad crank angle or cam sensor, (or various other gremlins), due to age & regular use....your truck is over 14 years old!!

Anyhow, hope this helps....

take a look at this, the symptom is common even though its a different vehicle...
