SOURCE: 1996 nissan altima engine stalls when going uphill

If you recently replaced the battery, you may need to reset the idle air control valve setting. This is done by removing the NEGATIVE battery wire from the battery while the vehicle is HOT. Then you must wait several hours for the vehicle engine to become cold. Next, once could, reconnect the negative cable. Start the vehicle, place your foot on the brake and imediately put the vehicle in drive. Stay in that situation until the vehicle engine bcomes hot to normal temperature range. This will be known by hearing the radiator cooling fan turning on. You must NOT use the airconditioner during this cause it will be on during the event. Once accomlplished place in park and allow the engine to cool, engine off. This resets the engine computer to tell the idle/load speed control valve to add air and resuling in additional fuel to the engine under various torque loads.

It sounds like the alternator may be bad it may have started to seize that would explain the rubber smell it burnt the drive belt, when the alternator goes bad the car runs off the battery but only until the battery runs down then the car will sputter and lose power. Have the alternator output voltage checked and the battery charged, replace the alternator if when running and with all accesories on headlights,wipers,fan motor, etc the alternator is not outputting at least 13 volts. also do this check after the battery has been charged and check out.

Possible fuel pump. When they get warmed up is when they start acting up. If you can get it checked when it does this ,it would tell you for sure. These run on a very specific pressure and they go 1/2 lb under they are done.

1999 Nissan Altima problem... Today my car had a strange scent. Possibly rubber burning. The next thing my car started sputtering and cutting out. When I pulled off the road, It would not start but seemed...

This could be any number of things, check all of your belts and make sure they are there. Do a visual inspection of the wires under the hood and make sure none look burned. The last thing to check would be the timing belt on the car under the cover behind the rest of the belts. If this has stripped the car could have jumped time and will not let the car run and could cause more damage the more you try to run it.
