    How is the spark quality?



    Have you checked to see if the timing belt is broken? Remove the distributor cap and see if the rotor turns when the engine in cranked. If not, the belt is probably snapped.

2000 nissan maxima won't fire when trying to start. it turns over but won't fire. it started once and ran but won't start again


sounds like it might be flooded. Try and remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block that is just in front of your left knee. While it is out crank the car and see if it wants to start and hold down the gas pedal all the way and then relase it and back and forth and once you get it to run have the fuse ready in your hand and in front of the spot to install it. and then keep the rpm's up with the gas pedal until the smoke clears out behind the car.

Distributor cap. Take off and see if the metal leads have corrosion. It is what connects your spark plug wires. Usually have to replace this a couple times a year!

My nissan maxima will not start


Check timing belt. Shoot a timing light down at your crank. If the timing mark jumps around bad, your belt has slipped.

Suddenly my 1998 nissan maxima is not starting


You need to see if it has spark at the plugs. If it does then I suspect a clogged fuel filter or a problem with your fuel pump.

1995 Nissan Maxima starting problem


You may need a new ECM/computer. This model car is known for water leaking into the ECM from your air box. The drain hole in the bottom of the box gets clogged and after a while, your ECM gets flooded, because the water has no place to go, but onto your ECM, frying vitale circuits. Check your passenger side floor by the feet to see if its wet.
