Question about Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I recently changed the transmission in my 1996 Nissan Maxima and since that time it has been hard to start. I have plenty of battery but it seems to bog some times when it is cranking. I have added a ground cable directly to the starter mounting bolt thinking I had a bad ground problem. This did not help. Could it be a coincidence that the starter is bad. It almost seems that it has a timing issue. Is there a sensor that controls this. The codes are PO325, knock sensor failure and PO440, evap leak.

You need to remove the trans and clean up the bell housing and trans housing. If you got this tranny from a junkyard chances are its been sitting around and has some surface corrosion on it that needs to be cleaned off. If you do this you should be good to go. Good luck.

1996 nissan maxima starts and runs great, a couple days later it wont' start, finally it will start, jumping battery does not help, but car runs great if and when it starts


I suggest that you take the starter motor to an accredited auto electrician as it indicates a dry joint problem in the armature bars
the fix is
the bars can be re-soldered
or My preference -- a new armature

1996 Nissan Maxima, 183,000 mi, car runs fine, 25 mi/gal. Lately, usually after having driven over 10 miles, car suddenly develops a miss which goes away pretty quickly. Sometimes, it simply stops running...


DID you properly gap the spark plugs?? This will cause misfires and may cause hard or no start conditions. Also inspect all your Ignition coil boots for cracks or oil. Clean them and blow any oils in the spark plug chambers!!

How do i change the transmission fluid for my manual Nissan maxima 1996?i cant seem to find any pictures or diagram on how to change it.


manual transmissions should have a drain plug on or near the bottom of the transmission and a fill plug near the top of the transmission. Remove both plugs and drain gear lube into pan. Replace drain plug. Fill with recommended fluid through top hole and then replace that plug.

1996 Nissan Maxima no 2nd gear on auto transmission?


do not flush the trans, that will make it worse.
My friend you have no second gear, you need trans rebuilt.
If you flush it now you can cause more damage.
