Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
I have a 2000 Maxima that has a problem with running properly with a check engine light. The RPMs dip when first started cold, and it continues to do it. They would dip really low and then soar back up and it did it over and over again. The other night, I had no passing power. First try, the engine would go up to 3000 rpms and wouldn't accelerate and then, next try thecar would **** forward trying to go but couldn't raise the rpms. Following that, I took it to a back road, trying to diagnose just how bad it was and rolling at 30 mph, I put the pedal to the floor and it wouldn't accerate at all.
Now, I took it to Autozone to have the check engine light checked, and I was told it was the EGR valve. Now I haven't got it yet but can you tell me where the EGR valve is located and then what you think could be wrong?
The egr tube gets clogged up jus remove at clean it out I jus had to do this to my 2000 max

No problems with EGR valves/system on this model car. Its located under the throttle body. Your valve is electronically controled by the ECM/Computer. Pretty bullet proof setup. What is the actual code number that autozone gave you?? Let me know the code number and will take it from there.
