According to page 10-3 of the 2001 Nissan Maxima Owner's Manual:

FUEL RECOMMENDATION
Unleaded premium gasoline with an octane
rating of at least 91 AKI (Anti-Knock Index)
number (Research octane number 96)
If unleaded premium gasoline is not available,
unleaded regular gasoline with an
octane rating of at least 87 AKI (Research
octane number 91) can be used.
However, for maximum vehicle performance,
the use of unleaded premium gasoline
is recommended.

Engine "knock" is not just an unusual sound - but over time can cause real damage to the engine. You *should* use fuels with the recommended octane levels, but if you choose to use fuel with a lower octane level due to reduce fuel costs - do not repeatedly use fuel that causes engine knock. Find the "sweet spot" between the cost of lower octane fuel and an octane level that does not cause knocking. Expect fuel economy and performance to drop with lower octane fuels, too.

Good luck!

To manuelly open 2003 Maxima gas filler door


I'm having this problem with my 2003 nissan maxima. I keep the driver side door open and keep my hand at the edge where the fuel door hinge is, and reache the button with a screwdriver or pen, and as it press the button, I push on the fuel door panel and it comes out. I'm going to replace the fuel door sooner or later. It all looks kinda dumb at the gas station.

2001 nissan maxima gle it bogs down when i press on the gas,idles low at .5 rpm,dies when i start it i have to keep my foot on the gas,lights run dim when i come to a full stop it has 155,000 miles


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the MAF (mass air flow) sensor and the TPS (throttle position sensor). If the MAF and TPS is faulty the RPM tends to go down or goes erratic. The MAF and TPS is located at the throttle body which is secured by small screws or bolts. It is visible which can easily be seen.

Once replaced you'll be good. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My car runs fine but when I push the gas pedal in nutral It won't go past 2 rpms. When I drive the 2001 Maxima it gves me problems once I reach 50 mph


Sounds like a problem with the fuel injector or the sensors for the unit. This probably needs computer analysis for rectification.

I have a 2001 Nissan Maxima. The car starts but after awhile it stops. To keep the car running I have to keep pumping the gas. I'm wondering if the problem is witht the starter or the alternator.


Hello, the alternator nor the battery will give this issue. How many miles are on the car? Have you ever had the fuel filter changed or the fuel system serviced?
