Question about Nissan Maxima
Change your Coolant Temperature Sensor. This will fix it! I've seen a few of these. It is failing intermittently and telling the engine it's at -127 degrees Centigrade. The engine management responds by enriching the mixture dramatically to the extent that a hot engine will not start or idle. You can probably smell the fuel at the tailpipe when you can't start it.

Yep, funny.. I've got the same problem. Only happens when there's been a dew point overnight tho.. (in other words, condensation on the windows) and only has happened in the morning.
The way it works for me is I'll start the car, run it for a bit.. then the RPM drops below 1000 even with the gas peddle floored. I'll turn off the car wait 10 seconds then turn the car back on and then the car will run fine for about 15 seconds.. this is basically a continues loop and only happen in the morning :(.
If anyone has a fix please let me know -> --firstname.lastname@example.org--
