Adjust your idle control valve (there is a setscrew under the rubber cap- you'll see it) also check the ignition system (distributor cap, coil, wires) fuel and air filters should be changed if not (replace every 2 years or so)

Can you give me steps on how to remove the cylinder heads on 91 nissan maxima 3.0 GEE dual overhead cam plz...thanks

Don't attempt it. It is not for the DIYer. There are very detailed procedures to follow and getting the timing right is is tricky. If you do attempt it buy a good manual and follow it closely.

1994 Nissan Maxima timing belt intact. Distributor rotor not spinning. What could be the cause?

Use no. 27 ring spanner to check if your pulley on the crank drives. Suspect your right cam shaft is either seized or broken.

How can i tell if my 1994 nissan maxima is single or dual cam?

Pretty easy to tell even without taking the valve cover off.
If it is a dual cam, then the spark plugs are lined up right down the middle, between the 2 cams.
Which is optimal.
If it is a single cam, the plugs have to be off to one side, on an angle.
Which is not as good.

My 2002 Nissan Maxima hesitates to start

if vehicle hesitates to start do you mean long cranking time (posible fuel pump) or no crank at all then suddenly starts then it is possible starter solenoid (notorious) - complete starter assembly needs replacement.
