Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

Car Shakes When Driving

I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima GLE that has 115,000 miles on it-I had the check engine light go off and got engine misfire a few times and reset the code after also having to change my oxygen sensor. My car started eventually to shake at times when I drive or even when stopping at a red light. I changed the spark plugs no improvement at all, I got cylinder one misfire-is that the only coil Id need to change? Would that fix my problem or not? I really hate this shaking thing, because now the check engine light also blinks!

    The car is shaking as soon as you start it and when I am not moving with the car in drive. I have been having the problem alot recently and have just recently changed the oil, transmission fluid, and a got a tune up. What could be wrong with it.

I had the shaking problem too, had the #5 coil replaced and the shaking instantly stopped.

Cylinder 1 misfire, youre going to have the head re machined, any good mechanic shop that is known for engine repair can do that, id als have your cat converter looked at, not very often but sometimes the cat can become clogged causing it to shake, my gut is leaning toward your head though, you probably have a few bad valves,

I have a 2000 nissan maxima gle 3.0 do i have to take out the engine to cjange the timong tensioner it has a rattling sound


Larry, normally engines do not have to be taken out to change timing tensioners, the bumper assy., A/C condenser,radiator,etc is removed to get access. Best if you get yourself a manual.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

It shoudn't be. Your oxygen sensors detect the oxygen in the engine. A misfire can be a few things, such as spark plugs/coils, wires, distributor cap and rotor, cam sensor, crank sensor, ecm. I would start with a tune up. If it has been more then 75,000 miles since you changed the plugs and wires, it could be that. Has it been acting up, such as hesitations, stalling when you slow down or stop?

The vibration is the engine misfiring. You need to get the codes retrieved from the computer. They are making the check engine light come on and they will tell what is happening.

Hesitation when cold, no power, sometimes runs relatively smooth. Backfires when pushing to floor. You can drive forever being gentle with gas pedal.


you have a misfire occurring is the check engine light on if so you need to do a code retrevial it may tell you which cylinder is misfiring or it may give you a po300 code which just says random cylinder misfire.if this vehicle has not been tuned and has several miles on it you would probably do well with tune up
