Question about 2004 Nissan Maxima
When I start up the car the cd would skip until I come to a stop and
wait for a while. Sometimes it would never play.

I have the same issue with my 2004 maxima.The service techs said it was the timing chain tensioners .Since they are hydaulic and they powered by the oil in the car .It is recommended to purge the the engine every time the noise starts to come back. I brought some an it really freaking work because I started to run it into a tree and go buy a toyota

the rattling sounds like its the hydrolic lifters (tappets or cam followers called also) not really a hard job just a pain cause you've to strip the engine to pieces to do. Its very time consuming so unless you've some experience i'd place this in the hands of an experienced mechanic. This should also stop the smoke problem.
The engine service light is on a timer from service to service so thats nothing to do with it.
The cd player your right about it just need the lazer llens cleaned. You can buy a cd cleaner kit for cheap in any music/record store.
Hope this helps if not let me know and I'll try and find the solution

Hi, this is a common issue within car CD changers. the load motor go through lots of trauma during the life span that i usually 3 to 5 years. the load motor operates everything in the changer. it works the load tray and spinning of the disc as well. when this motor is out, the changer will be rendered useless. replacing the load motor will fix this issue or, you can just purchase a new changer and save a lot of money.

replace the coil to plug boots,If it does not help,then change the fuel filter,if this does not help,then the fuel pump is going out.

it really won't eject due to worn out "motor-plate-sub-***'y", a component of cd mechanism. have it checked to a service center near you.
