I hear a grinding noise when I attempt to start my maxima


Sounds like the starter is not meshing with the flywheel. New starter or new ring gear- maybe both if it's been going on for a while. Good luck!!

Put new starter in 96 nisson a week ago now its real hard starting (grinding,not catching) i can get it to start but something wrong does it need to be shimed thank you


If it is making the noise I think it is, the problem is with the flywheel. The teeth on the flywheel wear out and when the starter goes to engage, it doesn't quite fully engage into the flywheel teeth and a makes a loud, sharp grinding noise, like you tried to start a running engine. What you can do is remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel. Make a mark, paint dot or crayon, and turn the flywheel with a screwdriver. If there are damaged teeth, and I suspect there are, they will be very evident. If that is the case, you will need to replace the starter (new starter will likely be damaged from your efforts to start your vehicle) and flywheel.

95 Nissan Maxima with fuel injection issue.


Could be battery, starter or coolant sensor.

It is hard to understand / get across engine noises with words so difficult to diagnose over the net but try to push start the car and let me know if it starts ok with a push. Also, maybe try a jump start, preferably using a circuit protector if you have one.
Let me know results of the above.

How do I change the starter in a 2000 Nissan?


you will have to remove the battery, the air intake assembly and air filter housing for access to the starter which goes into the flywheel on the transmission to the right of the motor when looking under hood from front of car. you will probably need a variety of extensions and a universal joint for your sockets will help reaching the mounting bolts easier.
