Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima

2 Answers

I just put a new clutch in a 1999 Nissan Maxima and now the speedometer does not work

I have never had problems with the speedometer. The mechanic says he hooked it up and is not aware of what the speedometer was doing before he installed the clutch. He doesn't accept responsibiity for the speedometer

If it was working before you got the clutch replaced, it is most probably the mechanics fault. They may have broken a wire or cable or the speedo sensor as a result of not disconnecting it before trying to remove the transmission. You need to bring it to another mechanic to find the problem to see if it was a result of the clutch removal. Then you may be able to seek retribution from your original mechanic.

SOURCE: i have a 1999 nissan maxima with code P1320

This code is a crapshoot. There are two main things it could be and they are both expensive. There could be wire breakage in the engine harness. There is a thick harness coming out of engine bulkhead on the passenger/right side and it has a slight bend to it. With the engine idling grab that bend and give it a couple of twists and yanks. If the engine stumbles or misses that is the source of your troubles. If not, you more than likely need to replace the coils. Any one of the six coils could be causing the code so I recommend replacing all six at the same time. You could buy one coil for the front bank and one for the rear and swap it between cylinders to see which coil is causing the code. This is time consuming but cheaper.

SOURCE: 2006 nissan maxima clutch problems

The problem is that the slave cylinder is right next to the front head of the engine-heat, heat and more heat!!! I put a piece of aluminum angle to curb the heat and installed a fan to blow right at the slave cylinder-PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

1999 nissan maxima speedometer

Is it high or low? Did you put new tires and rims on recently with a bigger or smaller outside diameter? If so then you need to change speedo gears.

I have a Nissan Maxima Problem with the Nissan Maxima 1997 Maxima I have a Nissan Maxima 1997 model the tyres size are P205/65R15. My question is Would Kumho 352 with rims diameter "16 fits on them?

If your wheels are 15" (you said they are) you cannot put a 16" tire on those wheels.
If the 16" ones are on wheels you need to physically check for proper clearance and offset so that they don't interfere with suspension or body parts. If the tire height on the new tires is higher than the originals it will put additional stress on the driveline and could cause problems. (it adversely affects the mechanical advantage you get from the differential gears)

I have a 1999 nissan maxima se the a/c clutch went out. Can I repalce just the clutch or do I have to replace the whole unit. I have been told both.

You can just replace the clutch, but if you dont fix the reason WHY it went out, your going to have to replace the compressor, anyhow. Its 11 years old, find out if the condenser fans are working ok. replace th ecompressor, and drier, and flush out the condensor. Have a a/c shop do it, you dont want to try it yourself, it will just cost even more.

Hello and thanks for using FixYa!

The distributor helps determine spark and injector pulse. I would have that checked as a possibility to your problem.
