My 95 maxima wants to stalls when when I accelerate pass 30 mph, it makes a loud roaring sound like it has a vacuum leak or something.


You may be hearing the air intake - could be a leak in the intake hose to the air filter.
Is the check engine light on ?

Try spraying an aerosol oil around the intake manifold and around any vacuum lines and connections with the engine running. If you hear a change in the engine speed than you've got a vacuum leak. Thank you, Dana

I have a 2004 nissan maxima. Every time rev the


Air can get trapped in your heater core. Sometimes you can use a floor jack and raise the passenger side of the vehicle, start the car and leave it running until the coolant cycles and the fans come on then rev the engine a few times to 2500 - 3500 rpm and let up. If this won't push the air through then you may have to remove the upper heater hose while the engine is running and let the air out. Probably a little harder than it sounds. I believe there also may be a coolant bleeder at the top of the intake where the coolant flows to the radiator. Crack that open with the engine idling.
I hope this helps.

How do I change the starter in a 2000 Nissan?


you will have to remove the battery, the air intake assembly and air filter housing for access to the starter which goes into the flywheel on the transmission to the right of the motor when looking under hood from front of car. you will probably need a variety of extensions and a universal joint for your sockets will help reaching the mounting bolts easier.

Ford Escourt 1.6 Si Running Badly


I'll try, 1st let look at the air being sucked in, the area you are describing sounds like where the plug wires are. The only tube that can leak air (sucking in noise) in this area is the intake tube that goes between the intake manifold and the air filter, if this hose has a big leak it will make that sucking in sound, it will also prevent air from going through the Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF). This will cause the engine to run poorly. Check the intake hose if it is cracked, got a hole in it, then replace it. Hope this helps, let me know.

Car dies when slowing down or stopping


Disconnect the air hose going to the Idle Air contorl Valve and plug the line with a small screw.
if the problem of the idle goes away and the car runs smooth and doesn't stall at stops, it's the air control valve housing sensor, it's basicall the whole unit thats no good. If it still stalls, clean the throttle body housing and all parts in where the air gets sucked in, put a rag underneath to keep the dirt from dripping down, start the car with somebody inside the car reving up the engine to 2000rpm's to 2500rpm's, then spray in to the throttle with burst of throttle cleaner and you will see the gunk keep coming out, you may have to change your spark plugs after this is done also.

Good Luck BigWillie
