I've been having issues with my vehicle. At times, the engine stalls and it cannot go above 15-20 mph, even while driving on the interstate. The steering wheel also locks up, as well. The vehicle dynamic control indicator then turns on. Luckily, I've been able to get to a safe location when this happens, but I find it alarming. I also think this defect is affecting other important components in my vehicle. It has been happening sporadically for about 2 years now.

While driving the vehicle, the accelerator pedal can suddenly become unresponsive, causing the vehicle to lose speed and the engine to slow or nearly stall. This happens frequently when driving, at all speeds from a standing stop to highway speed. This issue sounds very similar to the recall for 908,000 Nissan vehicles for accelerator pedal problems in early 2013. I think that recall needs to be expanded to Nissan models sold in the USA. I have had the car in for service at my local Nissan dealership twice for this issue so far, and the problem has not been corrected.

I was going back to work after eating lunch driving about 45 mph and engine just stalled and quite running, this happened in a work zone where they were repairing road. I tried to start car and it would not start, had to wait about 10 minutes then car started but when I started to drive, it stalled again and did it twice until I got it running long enough to get it to shell station. When we got it to the mechanic shop they said it was the crank shaft sensor and the cam sensor that has failed. They told us that Nissan cars are bad about doing this. I was in a dangerous spot with lots of traffic and road construction for this to happen and there could of been a bad accident over this but thankfully there was not. Also another problem with this car is it has delayed cranking when trying to start car in summertime when it is hot outside. I bought this car used about five years ago and was not aware of the problems people were having with it stalling out like that.

The contact owns a 2014 Nissan Sentra. The contact stated that while driving 70 mph, the engine stalled without warning. The vehicle was merged to the side of the road and failed to accelerate until the economy mode was turned off. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. The vehicle was taken to a dealer. The technician was not able to duplicate the failure. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 12,000.
While driving up a steady grade the 'service engine soon', battery, and oil lights all came on simultaneously. A few seconds later, or possibly at the same time, the engine stalled and all forward power was lost without prior warning (except for the warning lights a couple of seconds earlier). I steered to the shoulder of the road using the existing momentum. The temperature gauge had been normal up until the incident but showed an overheated engine after turning off the car and turning electricity back on (the engine would not start at this time).
Tl- the contact owns a 2005 Nissan Sentra. The contact stated while driving approximately 45 mph, the engine stalled without warning. After multiple attempts,the vehicle restarted and the "check engine" warning light illuminated. The contact had independently performed a diagnosis test and the test read a code of p0335 which indicated that the crankshaft positioning sensor had potentially caused the failure. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and informed the contact that the VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign:07v527000(engine and engine cooling). The approximate failure mileage was 127,000. Gb.
The contact owns a 2003 Nissan Sentra. While driving approximately 30 mph, the engine stalled and the check engine warning indicator illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that camshaft sensor one and two failed. The camshaft sensors were replaced, but the failure was not corrected. The manufacturer stated that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 03v455000 (engine and engine cooling). The approximate failure mileage was 70,000.

Engine stalled on the interstate while traveling at 70 mph. Stalled again about an hour later at 30 mph. Went to dealership, they were unable to reproduce the issue. Others have had similar experiences, but Nissan will not recognize engine stalls as a current issue with 2013 Nissan Sentras. However Nissan did send me one months car note for the vehicle being in the shop several times for this problem. According to Nissan there is a suggested repair involving the accelerator on these vehicles, but the company will not authorize the repair unless their technicians can reproduce the issue. After several calls to Nissan they simply say that they understand the problem I am having but the company will not authorize the repair at this time. They more or less left it to me to continue with my own research about a potential recall involving engine stalls.

Engine stalls when driving. It has also came to a low idle and nearly died at other times when slowing to a stop. There were no specific consequences to this problem as of yet. A maintenance shop blew out all airflow sensors and replaced vacuum hoses. There is a current recall on the same year model of this car, but not the correct VIN range. The dealer will not replace this item at no cost.
