Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
Posted by Anonymous on
The knock sensor reports to the ECM so that the air fuel mixture can be adjusted to stop detonation
the EVAP vents the system so that a vacuum is not allowed in the fuel system to prevent fuel flow from the tank
If the engine starts but the stops , the EVAP system is the most likely culprit for the problem
Take it to an accredited service center for a proper diagnosis and quote

Begin by replacing the knock sensor(s). The evap system code can be anything from a bad gas cap seal to a vacuum leak, to a evap solenoid to a charcoal cannister problem.

The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

Have the plastic intake manifold and gasket replaced. I have posted this fixed at least once before and have seen it numerous times.

The knock sensor is a major pain in the a..s to change I would suggest taking it to a reputable shop for a second opinion to see if they realy performed the work. Also with OBD11 (2) diagnostics if you have multiple misfires its not the wires its something else, also if you got a code for a misfire it would be specific as to which cylinder is misfiring. My best guess would be to get your coil checked.

Testimonial: "Excellent "
The description sounds like a technical Service Bulletin Nissan came out with on your car. It fits your description to a "T".
However, the codes you are getting are not what the service bulletin reports. The code they say it sets is DTC 0400 which relates to an irregular EGR operation, causing a problem where it will not maintain an idle or Will idle roughly. There is not a recall campaign on this item.
As far as misfire problems: Nissan had a service bulletin out on problem ECM's which caused this problem. Check with your local dealer. This may possibly be covered under warranty.
The reference number is NTB97-026 The bulletin was issued March,12,1997 There was no recall on this item.
Good luck to both of you.
