Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

2 Answers

Sir: I buy a 1996 used nissan maxima few days ago, carfax cleared it as a one owner and said all is well with a 71% ratings, but today it will not start. I am a single mom and did not take a mechanic with me - could not afford to, I was laid off & veh. repo.- I was told by the used car dealer that 'I have to turn the lights on before I start the car" was this a red flag? is this bad? Thanks. Pat

If your car has a problem to start, it's got to be one of the following problems. One, check your battery and see if it has enough voltage to crank the car. Secondly, check your starter and see it turns over when your key is turned fully forward/ to clock-wise positon as you normally would to start your engine. Check your car alarm system and see it is preventing you from starting the engine. Lastly, your ignition switch could be worn and it needs to be replaced before you can start your engine.

Im thinking of buying a 2004 nissan maxima with 104k miles. what should i wacth out for

Its a good car and I wouldn't be afraid of the miles. If you can do a carfax, that should let you know if it has had any significant body damage in its history. Also, if you can find service records, if it was serviced at a nissan dealer, the records will be cashed in their database, or if you can trace ownership, thru the DMV titling division, you can find the previous owner and ask them about the car and possibly request service records. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Does the 1996 Nissian Maxium have a timing belt or timing chain?

Just about everything has a timing belt now days, because they are quite. A timing belt is a very important part of your car, it won't run without it, and in many cases if it breaks you will trash your engine in an instant. I'd change every time I change my other belts, I honestly believe that is a good rule of thumb, Your owners manual should tell you what the manufacturer recommends. I hope this helps, I do this for free, and I just want to help people.
