1991 nissan maxima long crank then putts for 6-8 seconds then die

1991 nissan maxima long crank then barely putts for 6-8 seconds then dies. If during the putt putting I touch the throttle pedal it dies. when I first got this car (in this condition) it had quit on the highway and the owner replaced the distributor, cap, wires and plugs, It did not help. It was then able to start and it would build up to a good idle but you had to feather the throttle lightly to get the car to drive without stalling it. I pulled the fuel hose off at the filter and there is good fuel pressure. I cleaned the throttle position sensor (contacts corrosion) but this did not help. What could be the problem?

Why is it very hard to start, has no power, will barely move, then dies?


Lack of information,dear. Perhaps fuel pump (need to check pressure not less than 2.5 at idle),need to scan it for trouble codes(perhaps one of crank sensors),first check visually for all pipes and hoses for no leak.

P0440 engine stopped


That code is an emissions cannister leak and is not related to the engine failure. IT is most likely the crank shaft sensor that is bad.

I have a 2005 nissan maxima, while i was driving it died on me. Then a loud knocking noise from a rod started, now the car will barely run. How much to fix it?


to machine the crank and get another rod --set of big end and mains-- probably a rebore-- pistons --rings --labour Time off road- It will be cheaper to fit a reconditioned short motor so check around for one from an accredited engine remanufacturer.

1991 Nissan maxima hesitates


Best guess is O2 sensor is reading too much unburned fue in the exhaust for some reason and leaning out the fuel flow to compensate. Runs when you throw more throttle at it but leans out as you try to hold steady speed. Should throw a code though.

1991 maxima crank, putts for 6 seconds, touch accelerator it dies


1st thing to do is try cleaning the inside of the MAF sensor and having the ECT sensor tested, that controls cold enrichment, it does the same thing as a choke, sounds like you have a lean run issue. You might also consider getting the fuel injectors professionally cleaned, it can make a real difference.
