SOURCE: Fuel Pressue 1987 Nissan maxima

1st I hope you are taking the fuel pressure from the correct side of the system. The correct side will be the side coming from the fuel filter and before the fuel pressure regulator. At a normal idle, the pressure should be roughly 30-33 psi. When you crack the throttle rapidly, a sudden vacuum drop will cause the diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator to shift causing the fuel pressure to jump sharply. Usually to 45 or 50 psi. You can check the maximum fuel pressure by dead heading the pump. This can be done by simply pinching off the return hose to the fuel tank. At an idle, the maximum fuel pressure the pump will put out will be displayed. You will also notice a slight jump in rpm's because it cause the fuel mixture to fatten up before the ECM can respond to changing the pulse width based off of the o2 sensor.
I hope my answer was satisfactory.

SOURCE: Were is the fuel pump located?

The fuel pump IS located in the fuel tank. It is easily accessed in this particuar model, under the rear seat. If you have an arm reat in the middle of the rear seat, you'll need to go in through the trunk. Remove the cover from the the far back, between the back of the rear seat and the trunk space. Remove approximately 4 to 6 screws in the center piece of cardboard that attaches the armrest and rearseat to the cross menber of seperating trunk from seat.
From the back seat, grab the top of the back rest of rear seat, PULL HARD forward on left and right sides . This should disconnect the top. Then, on left + right-sides, toward the lower cushon, there will be a bolt, remove them.
Then pull up the bottom cushion.
In the middle of the floor you have left, where the bottom cushion once was, you will find the top of the fuel pump access. From the top there is a cable that goes toward the driverside, follow it to the connector which should be cover by a small piece of foam. Remember to diconnect the pump before attempting to service or replace it.

SOURCE: How do you fix the water pump on a 1997 nissan

The water pump is located behind the timing chain cover. There are two black plates on the front cover. The one near the front of the car has the water pump behind it. The other one has the timing chain tensioner behind it. First you must drain the coolant. Then support engine and remove engine mount. Then remove drive belts. Then remove the two black plates. Push the tensioner in and lock it with a paper clip. Then remove the two bolts holding the tensioner and remove tensioner. Then remove the water pump bolts. Rotate engine crankshaft the take tension off of water pump (about 20 degrees). Then install two bolts into water pump threaded flange (M8). Tighten M8 evenly as water pump will come without damaging it. Check for corrosion. Then replace with new one. Make sure you use new "O" rings. Lubricate with engine oil. Put the original three bolts back in the water pump. Then install timing chain tensioner and black covers. Replace belts and engine mounts. Add coolant and pressure test system.

Would not gaping the spark plugs properly cause fuel to come out of the tailpipe?


Possible, but it would be a rough engine spin.
Check the fuel level in the carb, or the fuel pressure from the pump as well.

What is this gas smell coming though my vents of my 2009 maxima


This is not good, could be a fuel leak [ fuel rail, gas line etc] which could result in a fire.. Also could be the canister for the gas tank venting system..either way you need to get it to a garage asap

1991 Nissan maxima hesitates


Best guess is O2 sensor is reading too much unburned fue in the exhaust for some reason and leaning out the fuel flow to compensate. Runs when you throw more throttle at it but leans out as you try to hold steady speed. Should throw a code though.

2000 nissan maxima engine hesitation problems


Has your Nissan sat for a period of time? If so, could be dirty gas...try adding 2 bottles of Heet gas line antifreeze and injection cleaner..also as this works, be sure not to let the gas level go below 1/4 tank...If needed check air filter dirty...throttle body dirty...Hope this helps.
