Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
I have a maxima QX SE 95 model, the problem is that when it idles, the needle drops to 500RPM, then cuts out, when I get to a stop light it cuts out when i need to drive off, when the gas pedal is pushed it chug's, like a fuel blockage, also a a small pop comes out of the exhaust, like a fire cracker. I have changed the throttle position sensor, spark plugs, fuel filter, fuel cleaner, air filter, I also ajusted the idle control, but didn't make a difference. When it cuts out, it will take a while to start, when it does start the smell of raw fuel and smoke comes out of the exaust. I have to really rev high to push the engine, so it doesn't cut out, but the revs are not smooth, the only way to describe it would be lumpy sound. Also when you let your foot off the gas, it makes that non-smooth sound, like it wants to cut out, sometimes it does. This happens more on rainy days, but less often on clear days. Doesn't like a drop in temp. I know this is lengthy, but I have tried everything, can someone please help? Thankyou.
I am having the same problem with a Maxima 1995, I have tested each coil for resistance and conductivity, they all seem OK. Just changed the fuel filter. Have cleaned the Mass Air Flow sensor with spray cleaner twice, The screws which hold down the fuel injectors seem to be 'frozen', so I haven't been able to take them off yet. I'm going crazy. I get the gas smell, but I haven't seen any exhaust smoke!
I have been thinking of the fuel pressure regulator, or maybe the fuel pump, but I'd expect the problem to be more constant if these parts were at fault. I can't get anyone to read the Codes for me. The check engine light stays on!

PROBABLE THE COIL

SOUNDS LIKE THE FUEL INJECTORS ARE BAD WHICH UNFORTUNATELY ARE EXPENSIVE. YOU COULD POSSIBLY GET SOME USED INJECTORS FROM A JUNK YARD FOR CHEAPER.
