Not firing on number 4 cylinder on 94 nissan maxima

So you have a cylinder not contributing based on
removing the plug wire & no rpm change.

Is that plug wire putting out the same voltage as the rest?

Are all the wires on the correct cylinders & dist cap locations?

Are all the injector plugs also on & in the correct places?

Does that cylinder have good leak down on a test or if your
only able to test compression,how does that compare to the others?

Sounds sort of like a mechanical issue & not a very bright outlook
there, if that is the case

Driving down the highway at 70 mphs and car shut down still had power but engine shut off

Do a compression check on the motor. This sounds like the timing belt broke so if you lost compression on any cylinders then this is most likely the problem.

2003 Nissan Maxima. Problem just started on freeway this morning. Engine hesitates with loss of power four or five times. "Check Engine Soon" light blinks on dash. Codes P0306P/D(cylinder 6) and...

Number 6 is in the front on the driver's side. I would swap the coil and wire with another to see if the problem moves with the coil. If yes, replace coil. If no, check plug and run a compression test (to check for burned valve or head gasket leak). Please let me know if you have any other questions.

First check the fuse, then the power window switch, then the power window motor. More than likely it's the power window switch.

Knockin noise at the top of valve cover, no motor power ,cyl 5 6 misfiring 92 maxima

Sounds like you have a couple of failed valves. Do a compression test on cylinders 5 and 6. You will have very little compression in either cylinder if valves are broken. You will have to have your head rebuilt at least on those two cylinders and possibly piston work depending on how the valves failed.

1994 Maxima anti-theft

If the light is flashing than the anti-theft is activated. Try locking and unlocking the car with the door lock button on the drivers side. lock and unlock a minimum of three times until the light quits flashing. If the car has loaded up (smells like fuel when cranking) then pull the fuel pump fuse and hold the throttle all the way down when cranking to clear the cylinders, then replace fuse and repeat the procedure with the lock switch if the light is still flashing. It should fire right uo if the light is no longer flashing and the fuse (15 amp) is put back in.
