Default Car stalls at idles and starts hard

My car started sputtering and stalling when the engine was idle or when I try to start it up sometimes. The car was driving fine and then after my catalytic converter was replaced within a couple of days it started to either stale or act as if it was about to stall when the car was at a stop light. A check engine light finally came on about a week or so later and it was supposedly the mass air flow sensor. I had the Maf replaced but it still continued to have a hard start in the mornings. The car continues to act as if it wants to stall and has stalled at traffic lights. I have had the throttle body checked and cleaned, the idle air valve checked and adjusted, checked for leaks, changed the computer, and still nothing. I trust the mechanic that is working on it and they are stumped. I need help.....anyone out there still experiencing similar problems after doing multiple things?

I see the acronyms MAF & ECM thrown around but it surely doesn't help me. What do those terms mean?

MAF = Mass airflow sensor
ECM = Engine control module

Ask your mechanic to do a fuel pressure test.

Default Stalling

My 2004 Nissan Sentra 1.8L Sedan is doing the same thing. Randomly stalls at idle, and also stalls sometimes at highway speed.

My mechanic friend hooked up my computer to his tablet, and absolutely ZERO codes came back.

I've replaced (from the auto wrecker):

The fuel pump
The ignition switch and assembly (for a broken ignition - unrelated)
The camshaft sensor

The issue hasn't resolved yet.

What should be my next thing to troubleshoot?

Possible intake air leak. Check for damage hoses.
