Nissan Maxima 2000 cold start problems

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.

Excessive exhaust when cold


Its cold! is it like polluting excessive? If the exhaust smoke is white its normal especially on a older car. Have you ever gone outside in real cold weather and when you breathe you can see the steam pretty much same thing. As long as the car is running the same then its more likely to be from the cold. Good idea may be to let your car thoroughly warm up before you drive off in cold weather.

My car dies in the morning if I don't immediately


DEAR,

This is due to the cold engine start.

Please get the Glow plugs checked.
they are mounted on the cylinder head, if they are blown off then it will not make the engine warm at the first start.

thanx

2000 Maxima GLE engine has trouble maintaining idle in cold temperatures 40 F and below and has been close to stalling. If engine is not warmed up, when shifting into drive, I sporadically feel little...


The intake plenum gasket is leaking! I have seen this many times before. If you can turn a wrench it will be an easy fix, otherwise take it in and have them replace the gasket. Oh, I almost forgot, the plastic intake manifold needs to be replaced as well. The inserts that holds the manifold in place come loose and that is the root cause of the problem.
