Re: maxima stalls after deceleration, stalls at idle

The dealer could find nothing wrong, but I don't know if he checked the error codes on the ecu - anybody have a similar problem and solve it?
Hi I have been having same problem with 1996 nissian. My Maxima has had spark plugs,3 rear ignitions coils and crank case sensor replace by a service company. When stop or idle it will shut off without notice like if someone turn ignition off. It will start right back up may work good for a while. I was told the crank case sensor was burned and that the coils were arching. Which I now think after 3 attempts by the same company they are giving me the shaft. I then took car to a nissan dealership the checkengine light came on right before taking to them. It had never came on before. Nissian Replace a Sensor-Booster, Mass Air Flow Ctrl, and valve assembly control. They kept it for 3 days driving and testing no engine light came on. After driving from dealership 8 miles check engine light is coming on again and I am out $1000. Also my car idle seems high. Without gas pedal depress my car is going 17mph on a flat surface. In park idle is 1200rpm. What is normal? Any Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also could the be the TPS sensor causing the problem?
