Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Nissan Maxima LE 1996 stall on incline

So I have a variety of issues with my car:

1. The car stalls in 2 cases, quickly changing from reverse to drive and when stopped at a light on an incline (about 25 degrees). Check engine light.
2. Slight hesitation when driving at around 40 mph and at just under 2,000 rpms.
3. Tape deck glitched (didn't fully eject the tape) and the sound system simply stopped working.
4. Weird whining sound when steering under about 10 mph.

Other than that, when the car is moving, it's generally fine.

    When in 2 wheel drive, no problems, but in 4 wheel, the engine will hesitate at speeds of 40 mph or over? Very erratic, no consistency.

1.Could be a torq converter or a vacuum leak.2Also could be the converter or a tune up or both.3Sounds like a wire shorted behind the stereo.4It could be the power steering pump going out.

Hi, i have na auto 1995 nissan maxima, the issue is it does not respond to reverse gear and on the road it stalls when i accelerate


Does this only happen in reverse or also in first gear?
My first suspicion would be the engine idle control valve or throttle body. These can become coked over time and may require replacement or cleaning.

Car stalls when put in 'drive'


Check your air horn (big rubber boot) to the throttle body. It may have a crack on the underside and when you put it in drive and the engine torques to that side the crack opens and causes it to die.

My 1994 nissan maxima is stalling when cold. It is sweet when it has been warmed up for a while and ok in park (auto) but when you go to put in gear or reverse it stalls. The trans is also slipping out...


You will ned to get the computer "scanned" to detect what appears to be two separate problems. If the stalling was the only fault I would have said it was either the throttle positon sensor faulty or the Air flow meter / sensor. However the two may be linked. ie faulty speed sensor.

Try the Throttle Positioning Sensor. It's located on the throttle body. Make sure you get a genuine Nissan part though. I believe it's about 120 dollars at the dealer. But this fixed the issue for me.

My nissan maxima stalls


Every answer here is wrong. This has been driving people nuts for 15 years. The problem is the engine wiring harness which has a bend going past the right strut tower, Nissan had a service bulletin on this in September of 1999, Google it, it's in pdf.
