Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
My Maxima 2000 starts well in warm weather or when it is warmed up. But, in cold weather it starts but does not stay on. I have to try to start it four or five times and even then it is rough going until it warms up.
I saw that a couple of other people have posted similar problems but was not sure of the answer to these questions. One person had suggested changing the plastic manifold and the gasket. I am not sure where these are? Can someone provide more detail on what causes this behavior and how to fix it?
Is it an idle speed control problem?

Take a look at your gausett brackets, by the front exhaust tube. 2 sheet metal lookig brackets, each held up by 2 screws each. Those gausetts brake and cause a rattle, Common problem on a MAxima your year. Nissan has a TSB for replacement of these brackets.

We are having the same problem. We are right now changing the crankshaft position sensor along with the intake and manifold gaskets.
