How do I remove the rack and pinion on a 1995 Nissan maxima with power stiring

You have to take the steering off the mounting bolts inside the dash. It will be obvious after you do. Once you remove the bolts holding it... a hammer tap may be necessary.

1995 nissan maxima

So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???

If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.

How do you get a crankshaft bolt pulley loose on 1995 mercury villager

Either use an impact wrench, or put a wrench securely on the bolt, with the other end against the frame or a block of some sort, and touch the key. It will spin the crank and loosen the bolt.

Starter is hard to find on 1992 nissan maxima se

The starter for a 92 Nissan Maxima is located in the front of the motor. In the front bottom of the motor on the driver side (right side if facing front of car).
It is cylinder like in shape with a little cylinder thing hooked to it (solenoid). There will be two or three wires hooked to it (one large wire and one little hooked to the solenoid). So, to find the starter, get on the ground, under the front of the car, look for the cylinder looking thing in the front bottom of the motor with a few wires sticking out of it. It sits almost directly below the battery...(well, directly in line of is at least a foot below the starter in distance, and probably just a bit more to the center of the car).

Change transmission instructions

this is for rear wheel drive only front wheel drives require removing axle shat and dropping tie rod end and lower ball joint to get tranny out. If you start this I will give tork setting when I know what you have as it is a lot of work to type this out.

First disconnect the battery, inside the cab pull shifter boot off and remove snap ring to remove shifter, next get a block to go under engine remove drive line bolts and be sure E-brake is set and block the wheels, next put bolts from driveline into the read differential in order so you will be able to find them next disconnect the two starter bolts from the starter and tie starter up as not to allow the starter weight to hang on the wires. Remove two bolts holding slave cylinder on let hang off the side do not lose the shaft out of slave. Next remove the transmission mount bolt out next pull four bolts out of transmission cross member, next remove 5 bolts out of bell housing now get a baggie and a couple of rubber bands and pull drive shaft slide baggie over the transmission tail shaft and put on rubber band on bag to keep from losing fluid move drive shaft out of the way. Next disconnect the Speedo cable and wiring harness the reverse switch is at the top so will have to drop the tranny down to keep from breaking wire. Once you have a gap between the transmission and engine put block under back of engine slide the transmission out let the front drop down then lift up on rear of transmission and slide the cross member out of the way. Next slide tranny out of the way next remove the 6 bolts on the clutch assembly turning each bolt 1 and a ½ turns each till clutch is loose remove the clutch pressure plate and the throw out bearing, remove flywheel take to machine shop and have surfaced, replace the clutch plate pressure plate and the throw out bearing reinstall in reverse if you see any oil leaks replace seals, also replace rear transmission seal now if you don’t it will leak next after it is back together be sure you put new fluid in the transmission and bleed the slave cylinder.

Car not starting, battery is ok, alternator good

floridaguy87: if I am understanding you correctly, you want instructions on how to remove and install the starter in your 1995 Nissan Maxima. If this is the case, HERE GOES:
1. Tools you will need for the job: #6 phillips screw driver, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm combination wrenches, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm (3/8ths drive) sockets, 6 inch (3/8ths drive) extension and a (3/8ths drive) ratchet. It's 1:oo Am and I'm not at my shop, so I can't go and look at a car to check for sure, but I'm pretty sure I've got it covered.
2. Always disconnect the Negative battery cable. Make sure you place it in a manner that will keep it from accidentally falling back and hitting the battey again.
Special note, either take a few pictures of the air cleaner with the hoses attached or label thm, mark the or come up with some sort of reference to eliminate ay questions as to what goes where when you reassemble everything. Read these instructions over fully before going to task.
3. Remove the Air cleaner assembly. You should do this leaving the hoses ans Air mass sensor on the air cleaner assembly. Disconnect the large hose at the throttle body and try to break it loose by rotating it slightly, NOT BY PULLING on it first. Always try to rotate hoses on their fittings first to break them loose before trying to pull them off. If they won't rotate, they won't pull off either!
There are other hoses connected the to hoses going to the aircleaner and the big hose which leads to the throttle body. Becareful in removing them. CAUTION!!!!!!!! The big hose which is for the Air Mass sensor, as it ages, will get dried out and can easily crack and split, so handle it with extreme care!!!!!! Note, there may be bolts inside the air cleaner housing holding it to the inner fender.
4. Once you have the aircleaner off, the starter is right there in front of you, you take the 12mm wrench and remove the nut which holds the positive battery to the starter solinoid. Be careful, rotate the nut counter clockwise. Do not apply a lot of force, you WILL crack the plastic on the solinoid. Disconnect the smaller wire which pulls off.
Some if the connectors require a little latch part to be pinched in order to release them from the part you are pulling the wire from.
5. There are only two bolts which hold the starter onto the bell housing. Usually the bolt requires a 14mm socket to remove them.
These bolts are fairly tight, so be ready to pull hard if need be,
Again, the bolts loosten up counter clock wise.
Remove the bolts and the starter will nearly or will fall out. Always break both bolts loose first and then remove the bolt which is on the side you can't see. Then remove the final bolt. In this fashion, you have better control of how and when the starter comes off.
6. Make sure you compare the parts before you install them.
Then with one bolt in hand, put the starter up in place and put the bolt in the hole you can see, threading it by hand, while supporting the starter. Once it is in a ways, you can put the other bolt in place. If you can not reach the hole with the bolt by hand, put the bolt in the socket and use the extension to reach the bolt into place. Again, therad it in as far as you can by hand. Most of the time, you can thread the bolts all the way in and all you need to do is tighten them with the ratchet. The starter will have one nut loose on the back of it, which is the same location as the one you loostened to remove the battery cable from on the old starter.
Remove the nut and the washer and place the cable end onto the solinoid in about the same position as the one you removed. Put the washer back on followed by the nut. Then us the box end of the wrench to tighten the nut up. Remember, you tighten it too much and you will break the plastic. Usually, when you tichten it, the lock washer, will flaten and it will be tight enough. You should not be able to "LIGHTLY" I stress that point, wiggle the cable up and down, it should be tight. Reconnect the smaller wire and then reassemble the everything in the reverse as you had taken it apart.
Let me know how I did.
