Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

2000 Maxima sputters at random times.

Can this be my starter or alternator? It happens at random times, even after the car is warmed up and has been running for quite sometime.

    Has the check engine light gone on? Very unlikely a starter or alternator problem.

I have a 2004 jeep Cherokee 4.0L cars sputters at 2000 Rpms changed the spark plugs and ignition coil and also fuel filter also changed battery and alternator still has the same problem I'm stumped


If check engine or service engine light is on get the codes read. There are numerous things it could be. Randomly throwing parts at it probably won't fix it and just waste time and money.

Hi there
your problem sounds like your Alternator is playing up or your battery is shorting ,so the best thing to do is to take the car into the alto elect and they can test the alt and battery ,thats all it can be.

Sputtering


if it is a 2.2 L engine check the fuel injecters see if they are leaking or if you smell gas behind the valve cover,,,if not your next bet would be the coil pack coil; packs act up more when they are warm

Starting problems


IF its not a fuel issue as in you checked your fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injectors and pressure regulator, try having your timing belt looked at. Maybe its time to replace it. Check your crank and camshaft sensors as well.

It could be a spark plug, plug wire, or a coil. Sometimes thay break down intermittently. If it needs a tuneup, that would be the first thing to do.
