    Same problem, very slow crank starting when engine is hot, but sometimes able to get started. However, after getting started hot, transmission feels like it disengages after driving a few minutes. (high RPM sound, slight grinding noise but car hardly moves) After car cools down, start OK and "disengage" problem does not occur.

Why is my nissan maxima loosing power when driving

This sounds like you may need to change your spark plugs. I am not sure of your fuel of choice, but 93 which is a high octane should work better, and dont for get to warm the engine before driving.

Were is the watet pump on nissan maxima 2000

It is located inside the timing cover housing, you might want to change the timing belt/chain; they tend to stretch and worned over time. at the same time if you have 100k or more since you going to be in the timing housing unit. The part is about $110 from nissan, aftermarket is about $90. the labor alone is what drives the price sky rocket. Nissan book state 7 hours to do @ $100 per hour. Your local independant mechanic may charge you less but not by much. Its an internal water pump under the timing cover what time consuming. If you plan to take the task, I recommend you go to local auto parts store and pick Haynes auto repair manuel, its worth the investment. you will need all metric sockets sets and some open/close box wrench. hope that help some

My 2000 max also revs up on its own.

Throttle position sensor or mass airflow sensor needs to be checked.

Acceleration is shady ... Gears act funny...

i would start by checking the mass air flow sensor or put a scan tool and checking live data.long trim and short trim fuel. may need a dealerfor that.
