Question about Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I am looking at a 1992 Nissan Maxima to replace the vehicle I have and my husbands uncle has it. He said that it runs great but when he put it in gear it wouldn't go. Then he shut it off for a few minutes, restarted it and it went fine. Is there a trans lock or something on the manual 5 speeds that could be going bad?

    Clutch feels normal. Is this going to be a problem leading to a new trans? Does the 92 Maxima usually have problems with 5sp? I looked and researched for an hour and could only find auto trans problems. The fluid level was normal. Actually I couldn't find many complaints at all for this year and model. Am I getting a money pit or is it worth to fix?

No trans lock. The clutch could be bad or the clutch master or slave cylinders. Check the fluid level in the clutch system resivoir. How does the clutch pedal feel? Is it firm and returning normally?

Just put new altinaitor in my 1992 Nissan Maxima and it wont stay running if you turn the Ac on . The car starts to run rough and dies

Check your iac idle air control valve they have a habit of building up carbon just at the opening where the valve seats the housing! If no signs of carbon build up then check your exhaust gas recirculation valve! Somewhere there could also be a major vacuum leak or a hose disconnected! If none of those conditions are the culprit then your ignition switch may need to be replaced but first make sure it isn't engine components! You could have not connected the wires securely and only powering the ignition control module when in the crank position of the key! I hope this helps you out!

I have a 1992 Maxima SE with 193,000 miles. The car runs great and is very reliable. However, I have a consistent leak,which I am informed is where the engine connects to the transmission. Can anyone...

Rear main seals and front transmission seals will run $400.00 to $500.00. The engine or transmission has to come out of the car.If you have this done you should also have the pan gasket replaced. about $30.00 extra. If it's the transmission seals have both the rear main and pan gasket replaced. And vise versa.

I was told by the Nissan Dealer that it was impossible to fix my 1992 Maxima. Unable to find Wiring Harness/Engine Harness. Do not have time to look for one. In addition, they initially told my car was...

you need a pot of coffee and google, just start searching and keep searching for it and you will find one somewhere. the dealer is basically being straight with you. how much do you want to spend to fix a 500 dollar car? spend a thousand dollars and get a 99 model.

If it happens only when it rains it means that water or moisture is getting under the distributor. The distributor needs to be replaced. Good Luck. Let me know how it turns out.
