Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima
Have a nissan 1996 maxima 3.0 the motor cranks over fine but takes long time to start sometimes engine will almost stop like out of time
if i adjust the idle at the iac it starts better or sooner like within 2 cranks
i herd that the trans may need to be pulled and mateing surfaces have to be cleaned ground problem
oonly code is for the knock sensor bank 1
this has been getting worse also smells like fuel
exhaust smells gassy when started and smokes
Thoroughly clean interior of throttle body especially area where butterfly flap seats and all drillings, use aerosol carb cleaner, check air filter and spark plugs (platinum type only!). Then set idle with a consult unit or similar, engine management must be in service mode to set idle properly.
Also test coolant temp sensor it may be open circuit. If you don't know how to do this ask me.
Forget about earth if starter turns engine over at normal speed.
