Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima
Will not idle when cold, shift into gear and motor will kill.
Engine coolant temp sensor is your most likely culprit, when engine is cold it uses the readings to set air fuel mixture, injector pulse

SOURCE: 1997 Nissan Maxima not shifting
I had the same issue, had a local place run a diag and they said it was the mass air flow sensor, dealer round 400 bucks, found a guy parting out his car got it for 50 bucks, after replacing that sensor, i was able to shift properly.

sounds like it could be the IACV or possibly the TPS does it have a check engine light if so get the codes read at a parts house like auto zone of advance auto parts. if it is the IACV they get plugged with carbon somtimes and u can clean them with carburetor cleaner or an electrical cleaner.

sounds like engine rebuild time and you need to have the transmition rebuilt too. i hope this helps. if you want to try flush the engine and fuel lines with ethenol. but if you flush the engine you will need to empty the fuel tank first. after you flush the engine full with fuel and run at idol for a couple of minutes. treat the fuel. this should help the engine to run properly whilst you wait to rebuild it. give it a service too. when you flush the engine too white smoke should be emitted from the exhaust or if you have a catilitic converter the white smoke should be reduced. hope this helps.
