Question about 1994 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

1994 Nissan Maxima -- check engine light on; bad beating/vibration, especially at low speeds and when idling; jerky, slow acceleration

The car is slow and uneasy when accelerating, and jerks at times. I know this could be bad, but any ideas would be appreciated. Also, is there anywhere I can get an OBDI test for free (Auto Zone only does OBDII)?

SOURCE: 1994 Nissan Altima shakes while idling

Broken or worn out engine mounts will cause allot of engine vibration in drive at idle, reverse also, change all 4 the mounts, not just the 2 broken ones. As far as slow acceleration no mounts will not cause that, Have you reached the 100,000 mile recommended tune up? have you ever replaced the fuel filter, this is required every 30,000, let me know.

SOURCE: 1994 nissan maxima OBD?

the only way i know of getting the codes from your car is to find someone with a MAC or SNAPON scanner or buy a scanner from autozone and get the adapter for the obd1 to obd2 port. hope this helps you !!

SOURCE: Car stutters at startup

My car did the same thing and I went and had it checked out. They had to replace my mass air flow censor. Cost me a little over $200. The only thing is after I had it fixed, my check engine light kept coming on. They said that my fuel line was running rich because I had ran my car so long with that problem. May want to get that checked out!

1995 NISSAN MAXIMA STALLING WHEN IDLING


Is there a check engine light on? Does it run well at other speeds? A stall at idle could be from a low idle ( the idle may have to be relearned using a shop computer). You may have a vacuum leak on a hose leaning out the motor and causing a stall. I would scan test the check engine for codes if it is on and possibly give yu a basis to start

Hi my car is a nissan maxima 96 went i am driving the breke light and the battery con on and of on the dash board


This is a real warning...I presume the lights come on at idle...and go off as you accelerate...The idle speed could be low...need a tune up...the alternator belt could be slipping, and the battery is not properly charging at idle...Have your alternator checked for free before you are stranded...Many auto parts stores do this test for free...Hope this helps.

When i put on the ac ,i get a weird vibration every 5 seconds.especially if i stop on a red light.my car is 1995 maxima


at idle, your compressor will cycle on and off. this is what you are feeling, and is normal.

the cycling will become more frequent and faster if the freon level in your system is low.

1994 toyota pickup rattles at low speeds (~15-19 mph).


Check for loose heat shields the cover the exhaust. I find this is the source of many rattles. They are made of sheet metal and if they are not clip or tightened down the low vibration frequency when the car is running at slow speed will cause them the hit the exhaust pipe/ front mainfold.

Maxima - terrible vibrations in low speed


A bad tire, a loose wheel, a loose tie rod end, a bent rim, (tire balance at higher speeds), a piece of rust or whatever caught between the rim and brake rotor, or between the brake rotor and hub. Have you done anything to it prior to this starting?

I had this issue and it was one of my winter tires about to blow out, showing signs of weakness.. hopefully this helps!

My nissan maxima stalls


Every answer here is wrong. This has been driving people nuts for 15 years. The problem is the engine wiring harness which has a bend going past the right strut tower, Nissan had a service bulletin on this in September of 1999, Google it, it's in pdf.
