Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima

2 Answers

1999 nissan maxima parked it now it will not start.

I have a 1999 nissan max,I am somewhat mechanically inclined and have checked all the fuses.I checked one of the plugs an it does have fire.I pulled the line off the fuel filter and fuel did come out when i turn the key to the on position.I am not sure how strong it should be when it comes out but it did shoot out like a park or school waterfountain.my question is can the fuel pump be weak or what causes the injectors to allow fuel to come through.This car will run off of ether.I got a brainbox from a junkyard and still the same thing.swithched the pressure regulator and checked the wiring to the crank position sensors and he camshaft sensor.where do I go from here.

What is the fuel pressure reading, about the computer (know as the PCM to us tech's) they very rarely fail, it is more likely u need to replace the fuel pump, so test that fuel pressure and let me know.

That sounds like a smililar problem i had. If you pull the fuel line off of the fuel filter, gas should shoot across the parking lot. Not trickle out like a water fountain. My 99 maxima did the same thing and what I found the problem was, was that the fuel line on top of the fuel pump it's self inside the gas tank and blown off. Because nissan put a stupid squeeze clamp on it instead of a screw tight clamp. Pull your the top of your sending unit off and I guarentee you it's not connected to the fuel pump. What's happening it the engine is running off of suction from the gast tank which is why it's only comming out like a water fountain. reconnect the hose back to the fuel pump and put a screw clamp on it prime the system back up and it should start.

I have a 1998 Nissan Maxima GLE, engine was replaced with a 1998 SE engine. Since then, I have been having problems starting. I get a boost and once I move the car and park it, it won't start again....


there is a problem with your iginition timing. it is most probably overly advanced. have an experienced mechanic check your ignition timing. the mechanic should check the distributor, camshaft, and crankshaft timings.

Nissan maxima 1999 temprtr increase more than half ,when increase speed ( new ladator replaced also plugs) some times shutdown


Hi,
The problem would be the radiator is somewhat already blocked. The coolant cannot flow freely to the radiator to the engine.
I would recommend that you bring your car to the nearest garage/radiator shop and have them replace or repair the said problem.Ask the mechanic also to check the thermostat valve, sometimes the valve is stuck up and did not open up freely and made the coolant passage too small for a proper circulation.
The temperature gone up during high speed means that coolant did not circulate properly!
Hope that solves your problem.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

The P0335 refers to the electrical circuit and not necessarily the sensor. Please see this article for full details - P0335.

1999 Nissan Maxima will not start.


Hello and thanks for using FixYa!

The distributor helps determine spark and injector pulse. I would have that checked as a possibility to your problem.

Thanks Jay!
