Default 2002 altima stalling

I have an 2002 4 cylinder automatic 2.5s W/ 114k miles.
Only recall i havent done is the ECM reprogramming
codes: P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)
P0725 Engine Speed input Circuit Malfunction
symtomes: cold start(mostly in the winter) it would take a couple of cranks to start.
lose of power while accelerating(more like a pause in power)
low speed cut off

is it the infamous crankshaft sensor that is the cause of all this

yeah u might want to do the recall/s first to see if that will change anything, have u changed the sparks out, have the battery checked at advance auto parts or autozone. the p0420 code is pretty hard to tell since it could be a leak in the exhaust, bad catalyc converter or a bad o2 sensor.

Service Engine Soon Light 05 Altima here is a link to a 2005 altima that has a p0725 code and u are right the crankshaft sensor needs to be replaced unless your car is good for the recall then u should do that first instead of buying it yourself.

got a P0300 code today(Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected) . that is a total of 4 codes. i hope the reprogramming of the ecm will fix all of this. havent got the chance to take it in since they said it be a few hours for them to do it.

DO NOT BUY THE AFTERMARKET SENSOR!!!!!!!!
They are using the old style sensors. You will end up with the same problems you are having now.

If you are getting the 420 code I would get yourself to a dealer and have your cat converter checked ASAP. I lost an engine on that one when the cat went and debris was sucked into the engine.

Hopefully not the case for you.

Default update

well i bought the crank sensor today and made the attempt to replace it myself today.wrong move .... a couple of the other threads Ive read trying to locate where this sensor is said you can get to it from the top of the engine, well i found out you could only access it from the bottom and its closer to the passenger side of the car, also it isn't a 10mm bolt but a 12mm. all in all i couldn't do the job because i didn't have enough clearance to even get the sensor out. its 1 thing to get your hand in there and loosen the bolt but to get the sensor out is a whole other mission. some type of vacuum line is in the way which calls for me to remove that. i will have to go at this another day. i will try to get some pictures up. if anything Ive said is incorrect please correct me!
