95 Maxima SE Cuts out on idle and in mid drive

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 have had the coils tested, and they seem to be fine. Thanks anyway.

    I have had similar problem but not exactly the same. My car never stalled on a stop sign or a red light. It might be one of your fuel injector going bad. You can verify that by unplugging the each electrical wire at a time to the coil and notice the difference.

    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!

    I have the same problem. The mechanic told me it is a fuel pump...i am thinking to buy it and change it myself. Any guides on changing the fuel pump?
    Thanks

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

What can it be ? My 2004 maxima se (auto 5 speed) is idling low when its warm ?


Needs carbon flush. You should take it to a place that knows how to relearn the idle as this year & model can be tricky. I have found that unpluging air flow meter then starting eng., repluging airflow,then clearing the code will set idle back to factory settings.

You are most likely leaking leaking coolant. Does white smoke come out your tailpipe? Is the floor on your passenger side wet at times?

I have a 2000 nissan maxima and the problem that i


Idle air control valves short out all the time on these models. You can ohm the motor to check it, but the down side to a shorted iac valve is that it shorts out the ecm if not repaired quickly. when the valve shorts, 12 volts is supplied directly to the ecm and burns the circuit board. The other option is the air flow meter, this is also a very common problem but typically a p0171/p0174 would be stored in self diag.

TRY cleaning your throttle plate. these get some carbon buildup and will restrict airflow at idle and can cause the computer to try and compensate for it
