Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Sudden clutch failure

In the time it took me to drive 10 miles to work, my clutch went from seemingly normal to half as high. When I went to leave after my shift, I had to push the clutch through the floor to shift. Isn't clutch wear more gradual? I drive a 2000 Nissan Maxima.

Sounds like you have a leak .... a bad master/ slave cylinder .... that car has a hydraulic clutch system you may see oil dripping, much cheaper than a new clutch ... pumping it may help shift until it empties out entirely ... check the reservoir ...

    Replace your fan clutch, very very common problem with trailblazers and envoys. It's just coincidence that the fan clutch went out when replacing the battery.

    Drive time computer reset

    Drive cycle has to do with normal everyday type of driving. So many stops, so many miles, fast driving, slow driving. My car went thru a drive cycle in about 38 miles on my way to work. My daughters took 3 days and about 78 miles. So just drive it like normal.

    99 Sunfire Coolant keeps dumping

    You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage.
    With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.

    1993 w/rebuilt tranny wont go into 3rd.Just bought.

    So it shifts from 1st to 2nd but that is it? 3/4 clutch burned out. Check the transfer case level. If you remove the fill plug and oil pours out, the transfer case input seal is bad, the transmission oil drained back into the transfer case leaving the transmission oil level low, and then it burns out the 3/4 clutch pack. I have seen oodles of these at my shop. Very common. Someone may have added fluid to the transmission to "doctor" the problem which won't work anyway
