Yeah, I pulled the one off the X already and am taking it with. Besides, they need it or I pay the core charge. I'm getting it from Advanced Auto Parts, I saw a recommendation that their remanufactured parts have a better success rate than Auto Zone.

I sure hope this is actually the culprit. I'll know soon.

Cheers,
Dave

Well, it's a little hard to be optimistic, but (knock on wood) I just got back from a 2 hour test drive after replacing the MAF sensor and it ran fantastic. No stalling, sputtering, hesitating, or any of the issues, and much zippier overall. I took it on the highway and also in town, stop and go with a lot of turns, went to a few stores, etc... So far so good!!

When I replaced the sensor I also took off the housing and cleaned the screen, and also replaced the air filter (which wasn't horrible but figured I might as well).

I still can't believe the dealer wanted $850.00 for that part and I got a remanufactured one for $135.00.

Once again, I want to say thanks to this site and to dennis for all the help. If it turns out that this was the answer (which so far seems to be) you guys saved me piles of money, time, and frustration!!!!!

I am experiencing the same issues that you had Nerfball. I am going to give this MAF sensor option a go and see how it works out for me because the last couple months have been extra rough on the MPG's! I expect the drop in winter because it does get cold in Thunder Bay but last winter my mileage was much better.

Just finished reading this thread, and I gotta say I know how u feel. Just spent $9000 on an 02 with supercharger, had it 3 mos and it started dying on me. The KS code was the first thing I went after too, but have since found out that prob 60+% of Nissans will show this code, and no, it doesn't activate the dash light. Apparently is can be as simple as a bad tank of gas. The SC engines require hi-octane fuel and there's just no getting around it. Anyway, after much frustration I ended up taking it to the shop and after the diagnostic found out I am getting a new clutch. $1500+ ouch. Boy was I off base!
Anyway, my point is it's prob not the ks. Hopefully you've got it fixed it now...
Post up and let us know how it goes, the guys (and girls) on this site are amazing, so knowledgable and always willing to offer help to us noobs!
here's the link to my thread if u wanna know what's happened with my X

that is all symptoms of a bad distributor but they usually dont last this long when the symptoms show, if it acts up again pull the plug for the MAF while its running, if no change its bad if it changes idle or dies its fine, after that i would check the spark plu for age and wear and check to see if your getting proper spark at the distributor cap and check the rotor (thing under cap) for wear and all metal contact in cap for wear. then check your wires and fuel filter.
