Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima
If its not turning the engine over then it's probably the solenoid stopped working , u will still hear the starter turning but it wont engage the fly wheel and will not start the car

This is common for this model, also alternators and drive pulley bearings/belt... solution is to replace!

Tips for a great answer:
First check the starter relay fuse. Replace it even if the fuse looks good.
If it still does not start, jump the starter's two heavy solenoid terminals with a screwdriver. FOR YOUR SAFETY THE CAR MUST BE IN NEUTRAL OR PARK WHEN YOU DO THIS because the starter should jump and turn now! The ground is the problem if it turns.
If it still only clicks the solenoid may be faulty. Replace this if you did not get a new solenoid with the starter.
