    I originally had problems starting the engine. After about 5 cranks, it would usually start. When the car would start, it runs like new without any hesitation or misfires. Now, the engine turns over, but it will not start at all.

You may have a problem with the check valve in the fuel pump, if this valve is defective the gas drains back to the fuel tank and causes long crank times, you can test this by hooking up a fuel pressure guage at the fuel injector fuel supply line on the top of the engine, run the engine for a moment and quickly record the pressure when you shut down, that pressure reading should not drop more than 5 PSI overnight, if the check valve is bad the pressure will most likely start to drop right away, but do the over night test anyway. If this is the problem you will need to replace the fuel pump in the gas tank.

first check radiator level if it is full and the heater is working good make sure temp gauge is functioning c orrectly it is most likely the coolant temp sensor but if this is a high milage vehicle and you have owned long time and never changed i would also replace thermostat and check plug to temp sensor forr good conections and good wires

1995 Nissan Maxima, 103,000 miles. Only starts in the cold


Looks like you're not alone. Doing some research and it would appear to be a common problem. It's a process of elimination:
  • Change fuel filter; a bad fuel filter will produce the symptoms you're experiencing
  • if the fuel filter doesn't cure your problem (i think it will) you may have a clogged fuel injector; this is less likely than the fuel filter but still possible. There are some good fuel system cleaners out there that work pretty well
I hope this helps you out and best of luck to you!

95 maxima O2 sensor


90% of the time its not the o2 sensor thats bad,they hardly ever go out, its something else making it come up on the codes, save yourself some money dont change it , if you insist on changing it , start the car let it come to full operating temp , the o2 will loosen right up BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET BURNED!
