Q: My 2004 Nissan pathfinder stalls when I stop at a stop sign or red light or just to turn it feels as if it barely wants to go wha

asked by on

issue is stalling when I come to a stop my car makes a weird noise and feels as if it don't want it move need help asap
My car has an automatic transmission.

There are several problems which could cause this behavior. First thing - if the Check Engine Light is illuminated, get the problem codes which are set, causing the Check Engine condition.

Problems which might cause stalling without setting Check Engine include a dirty or malfunctioning idle air control valve, throttle body, or leaking air intake hoses.

To avoid any unnecessary repairs, I would recommend having your stalling problem inspected by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs. YourMechanic can dispatch a mobile, professional mechanic to your location for this repair.
