Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

Idle and Power Where is the fuel filter?

Our 2000 Maxima stalls while idling when cold. When accelerating at 80-100km/h it lags. Thinking it is the fuel filter. But can't find it. Where is it?

    We have the same problem. Brought it to the dealer and had them replace the mass air flow sensor. From everything we read online, we knew this wouldn't fix the problem. Everything about this car is a mystery--read many stories like ours online. People have replaced this and that with no results. Now our dealership thinks it might be a vacuum leak in the plenum (?).

Fuel filter is inside the gas tank and its built into the fuel pump housing. You need to remove the back seat and get into the tank via access hole under the seat. Than you need to "split" the fuel pump assembly open and get the filter out. Reverse procedure to assemble. Those filters are rated for 105k miles. My 00 Maxima has 167K on it and it runs just fine with the original. As far as the air flow meter , its a pretty common part that fails and that's why 00 Max air flow meter costs only $100 and all others $500 or more. If you replace an air flow meter, make sure that you use a "NISSAN" air filter or YOU WILL BE replacing the air flow meter AGAIN. Also with the new air flow meter the cars ECM/Computer needs to be reprogrammed. As far as plenum gaskets leaking?? unless someone had it apart and didnt put it back together the right way, its "VERY UNLIKELY" for those gaskets to be bad. Totally bullet proof.

It surges at idle and stumblesunder mild


I want u to clean the air intake valve and idle speed control valve, follow the procedure below.

Here are the common cause of surges, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

let me know in a few days if this helps.

Car dies when slowing down or stopping


Disconnect the air hose going to the Idle Air contorl Valve and plug the line with a small screw.
if the problem of the idle goes away and the car runs smooth and doesn't stall at stops, it's the air control valve housing sensor, it's basicall the whole unit thats no good. If it still stalls, clean the throttle body housing and all parts in where the air gets sucked in, put a rag underneath to keep the dirt from dripping down, start the car with somebody inside the car reving up the engine to 2000rpm's to 2500rpm's, then spray in to the throttle with burst of throttle cleaner and you will see the gunk keep coming out, you may have to change your spark plugs after this is done also.

Good Luck BigWillie
