Your description is a bit confusing.  I'm not sure what the other expert suggested but based on what you have written it could obviously be several things.  A couple of things that I would look at right off the bat would be your IAC valve and your EGR valve.  Can you explain the problem a little better?  Thanks, Keith.

Here is what needs to be done, 1st run a quick test of the Electronic Contol Unit for trouble codes, test the fuel pressure, until these two tests are run u are shooting in the dark as to what the problem is, U CAN BUY A SCAN TOOL FOR DOING THESE TESTS FROM EBAY, THIS SYSTEM YOU HAVE IS CALLED "OBD 1".

Hi there,

In reality what is happening is the electrical component inside the MAF sensor becomes contaminated by air impurities. These containments imbed themselves to the electrical component that senses the air flow causing the sensor to be slightly off, but not enough to trigger the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp). Replace the MAF sensor with a new.

good luck

1991 Nissan maxima hesitates


Best guess is O2 sensor is reading too much unburned fue in the exhaust for some reason and leaning out the fuel flow to compensate. Runs when you throw more throttle at it but leans out as you try to hold steady speed. Should throw a code though.

Sounds like my 2002 nissan pathfinder is bogging down when i gas it , it runs fine but gets crappy gas miledge


needs a tuneup, definately change fuel & air filters, replace spark plugs & wires, distributor cap / rotor, change oil & filter, it would'nt hurt to replace cat conv., it restricts exhaust flow, between you & me , take it off, put a straight pipe in its place, is your inspection up to date ? you'll have a year to replace your CAT, before next inspection. just remember that. nissans this year usually need to have the timing belt replaced, nissan charges $900 + to do it. BIG DIFFERANCE ! see how it runs after tuneup, also , you may end up replacing both the cam & crank sensors down the road. I would replace the OXYGEN sensor/s as part of tuneup, it will help a great deal.

Loss of compression in #5 cylinder on my 1990 nissan maxima


I would first be sure that you have spark to that cyllinder. Pull the wire off and stick an extra spark plug in the wire. Lay it on the engine block somewhere and atart the car to see if it's sparking. If it is, you have a valve or cam problem. If it isn't check the plug, the wire, distributer, coil pack etc.

Got a 1995 nissan maxima with 179,000 that hesitates or misses.


hello, also check plug wires,distributator, cap and rotor button, you can check plug wires,at knight time, crank engine, with hood up, walk around car, look at plug wires while motor is running, see if any sparks are coming from plug wires, also if it clunks, like you said, you may have broke motor mount, transmission mount, check for air lines leaking also

Had work done on my car (36K miles on the car): oil change, new plugs, new plug wires, new dist cap, new dist rotor, fuel filter, pvc valve, and brake work. Now it runs like ****. rough running and exhaust...


Sounds like a fuel mix problem possibly the oxygen sensor. If it ran like this immediately after the new plugs, I would check to make sure all the plug wires are on the right plugs and secure. Good luck!

1991 sentra 2dr 1.6 L rough idle in park and in drive at stop


Sounds like misfire. Change spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor , fuel and air filters. Check for oil in spark plug holes. if oil found change valve cover gasket spark plug orings. they can leak oil into spark plug holes and cause misfire.

You may have a loose spark plug wire or your main spark plug rotor spinner might be bad its where all the plugs join together. Left side of maxima.
