Default RPM drops for then stalls just for moments under 30 mph

Hello fellow 6th gen'rs!!

Recently I just got my 05' Max (98k miles) serviced at the dealership in Garden City Nissan for timing chain tensioner assembly replacement and front hub bearings (oh the price hurts!); Lately, I can feel the car almost stalls when I'm driving slow usually when i'm in the traffic (below 30 mph). I noticed while that happens the RPM drops and jumps right back to where it was with in moments and the car breaks free from almost stalling to normal. All these within matter of few moment but keeps on happening. I haven't noticed this problem when driving above 40 mph. Do you have any suggestion/advice as to where to look? I really don't want to go back to the dealership just to tell me about the problem and pay steep price to them to fix it.

Thanks!!

Have you checked your MAF and O2 sensors ? I had similar problems when they stopped doing their jobs properly...MAF made it rev and jerk and the O2's caused it to stop without warning..Hope this helps !*

Thank you so much! No I haven't checked them. Did you have to replace your MAF and O2 sensors? Or just cleaning the MAF fixed it? Can i use aftermarket MAF and O2 sensors?

Yes, I replaced both of them. It came up to about$200. I got mine from rockauto, they have really great prices for our max's on the parts. Sure beats the stealership lol!

Thanks! Really appreciate your help. Is there any way to to be certain that it is indeed my MAF or O2 sensors / combination of both?

You're SES light didn't come on? My SES light came on and ran codes too MAF an o2 sensors. Bro go on YouTube, and type 6gen maxima MAF and o2. Yeah, you definitely just don't wanna start throwing money around because that I don't have a lot of lol. Keep me updated bro on your progress.

Oh man! Lol! I left out that important detail! Yeap, my SES light came on indeed but then it went off. And been on and off. Did yours came on and off as well? I know I have to change my Cat. but I'm going to wait on that cause that will definitely hurt my pocket! Lol, I found the sensors on Ebay that fits '05 Max for 20 bucks. Not sure if I wanna go for it and just try it out.

No mines stayed on, if it's not coming on anymore. Usually the car stores codes even if the SES is not on. I would suggest you try and get a hold of a good OBD reader/scanner that allows you too look up hidden codes. Don't buy that eBay **** you'll just be wasting your money. Just add $60 more dollars and get the one's from rockauto. But first make sure it's your MAF and O2 sensor.

Mine just started doing the same thing. Got a code reader and it had ti code come up. Camshaft positioner and random misfire. So i bought both front and rear camshaft sensors. Installed them and it still is misfiring and stalling out. No other codes come up. So what could the problem be?
