Question unexplained loss of power

gday all

just had my ute go in for warrenty. went to overtake a truck and all of a sudden the engine dies. still running just no power. no lights or codes came up either. pulled over turned the car off and back on again a couple of times until it went back to normal. did this to my wife about 2weeks ago at traffic lights.

nissan looked at it when it went in for its 40k service and they cant explain it. so its back in again today.

anyone had this happen or know what may have caused it?

Suction control valve. Pop the fuel a little to let tank pressure out. The problem won't happen again.

That sounds exactly like what was happening to Beergutz. We looked at his compared to mine, and his fuel rail was running about 2,000KPa higher than mine and boost was a fraction higher too.

That was resolved by loosening the fuel cap. I don't know if it's a faulty/blocked valve in the fuel cap or something else - but if it happens again, loosen your fuel cap and try it again.

Check the MAF sensor, Maitland Nissan have 14 of them doing it at the moment, no codes, lights, nothing but one guy has got his to throw a code to the MAF.

Got to love technology :)
