Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
My car shuts off sometimes when put in reverse. It does this usually after it has been driven. It hasn't happen in the mornings. Its weird because I can restart it, put it drive, and take off with no problem and it idles good. Now if I put it reverse after going forward it will stay running. Need some suggestions Please.
This problem is faced by many Maxima owners including me. This generally happens when the engine is cold (first time in the morning or gap of 6 hours).
I was told to get the complete transmission serviced which was proving quite costly. It worked with a simple transmission filter/screen replacement which I found out by going through automotix 1995 maxima repair which has complete repair and maintenance schedule for the 1995 Nissan Max.

Mine had a similar issue. You might try changing the ignition control module in the distributor. I changed out several parts because every place that checked it said it was good. But I decided to change it and it ran fine afterwards. It should only cost around $30 for a basic unit, unless you have a shop install it. But it does sound like its something that's on the engine and has trouble operating when it gets hot.

A VERY Recent Tune Up MUST Be Insured to Properly Diagnose this Discription, If the Vehicle Has Not Had A Recent Tune up That CAN be the Cause of Your Symptoms, If it HAS been Tuned up, then With these Symptome the Check Engine Light Should Illuminate, and If the Light is On It Must Be Checked For Codes and Fallowed up From there. If No CEL Try Changinging Fuel Filter, As This Will Cause Poor Performance Without Turning ON the CEL.

There is a relay on the rh passenger side kick panel above the automatic transmission module that is controlled by the ECU through the MAF sensor that controls your fuel to the engine so the air / fuel mixture is correct. I fixed a pathfinder one time with a similar stalling problem.

You should also check and make sure all parts of the tubing are connected between the air filter and the throttle body. If one of these comes loose it will cause your murano to run like that. This is pretty common.

This is Ron out of Vero Beach Florida. I have been doing trannys for years. The problem you described is caused (more than likely) by a seized clutch pack. Depending on the trans, and your car should be RWD with a 700r4 tranny, there are several sets of clutch packs and at least one band. Automatic transmissions rely on fluid pressure to "engage" the correct set of clutch discs, at the right time , to engage and change gears. I have seen in the past, where a customer parks his car for the evening and the next morning, no move. What happened?? More than likely, a clutch pack was on it\'s way out but cause the car was hot the plates were free, but after cooling, they can weld themselves together and actually "lock-up". In the morning you know the end result. Your tip on "moves in Nuetral" is the give away. Ron
