2004 Nissan Sentra - Where to start?

My car shuts off while driving. Not the starter,battery, or crank sensor all been checked and changed.

Fuel pump? Fuel filter? Pressure regulator? Could be many things.

So who replaced those parts and what diagnostic did they do? And WHY would anyone replace a starter for a car shutting off while driving? That’s dumb, unless the starter would not crank the engine.

If you are going to fix this yourself, explain the conditions when this shut-down occurs and if the car starts up afterwards and if there are any check engine lights on and the codes. Post those here and we’ll try and help you.

I know someone who replaced the starter because the engine was idling low!!!

I think some people change the starter simply because they can.
