Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
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?
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.
