Look for a cracked or missing vacuum hose on the engine manifold.

SOURCE: Stalls out when braking quickly, worse with going down hill

Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.

SOURCE: Low idle and hesitation when driving

i had a similar problem, with a different car though, and it turned out that the seals in the fuel pumps had been eaten away by the ethanol in the fuel i was using. i had the fuel pumps replaced as well as the filter and switched to a different fuel that contained no ethanol and i haven't had a problem since.

SOURCE: 2004 nissan armada low idle then won't start

I had the smae problem with mine last week, it turned out to be the IPDM Independent power distribution moduel, looks like a big fuse box. I would take it to a side mechanic and have them fix it instead of going to the dealer it took like 45 mins to take the old one out and put the new one in. If you go to the dealer they are sure to charge something crazy. Hope that works for you.

sounds like might have bad fuel pump. take fuel line off see if it has pressure. the pump should come on if key is turned on without cranking it. or it can be the mass air sensor. it can't monitor the load.

hi, oil leaking down into the spark plugs causing problems, in the 4.6 the plugs go way down from the top and can get full of oil, pull one boot plug up and out inspect one at a time to see how bad the oil leak is. it needs gaskets but should be okay to go back and forth once, needs valve cover gaskets now..jm

Right oil for my car


you want to use the 5w20 for best fuel efficiency and easier cold starts especially in bc. multiweight oil has made great strides in the years past. also synthetic oil is a good alternative but you should also use the manufacturer's recommended viscosity. the thinner oil also allows better lubrication on smaller passageways.
