Starts but runs ruff then dies

Hi Glean, Sounds as if you have a problem with the fuel pump or possibly the air flow sensor. Take the vehicle for a scan and if no fault codes show up suspect the pump. Regards John

Let's start by two advil. That is a lot of parts and a lot of money. Have you checked the compression in your engine? That would cause it to run rough. I would also scan the engine for a vaccum leak. Check the throttle body and manifold for leaks as well. Everything else, you have already did.

2000 Nissan Maxima dipping RPM's and no acceleration

No problems with EGR valves/system on this model car. Its located under the throttle body. Your valve is electronically controled by the ECM/Computer. Pretty bullet proof setup. What is the actual code number that autozone gave you?? Let me know the code number and will take it from there.

EGR question on 1995 maxima 3.0l v-6

you don't have to pull off the intake manifold. take the egr off and clean the port is all. then the code has to be cleared.the egr is on the right side of intake(closest to the firewall. you can use a small wire brush or old toothbrush to do this. also check the wires and plug and if you egr valve has a vaccum line make sure it's not plugged loose or missing. use a lil bit of carb cleaner to clean port. replace egr and clear the code a scan tool will clear this code. please rate this thanks
