Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Engine stops while driving

The engine can stall whether foot is on gas pedal or not. On flat straight or on downhill doesn't seem to matter. I have 91,000 miles on my 1996 Maxima. Anyone know a reason.

Car stalls when foot off gas pedel does not hold idle


these trucks are equipped with an idle speed control motor. What you're describing sounds like that part has stopped working. The part is designed to maintain idle when gas pedal is released. Now if you hear an audible hissing noise under the hood, then theres a vacuum leak which can cause the same problem, but it sounds like the idle control motor. Good luck.

Car will not accelerate when gas pushed


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Code p0740 on 2001 grande cherokee laredo v6 auto


That is a torque converter traction control clutch failure. A test to see if the TCC is failing is to drive at steady highway speed (straight, flat and lite foot pressure on gas pedal) and lightly tap brake pedal. Not enough to slow the car just enough to turn on the brake light. This should cause the engine rpm to rise by 200-300 rpm. If it doesn't then the TCC is probably bad. The really bad news is a trans rebuild will run you anywhere from 2200 to 3900. Find a reputable trans shop and have them do a more definitive troubleshooting and they will be able to give a closer price.

TH Magna stalling in idle after battery replacement


Hi - what was the solution??

Ive just had exactly this problem. Got new battery today then no idle. The car starts fine and runs for abourt 1 second then instantly dies. Its fine if you keep your foot on the throttle. Unfortunately if you are going downhill as soon as you place your foot on the brake the engine dies and the steering fails - then the brakes!!!

I seem to remember having idle problems the last time I replaced the battery. but not as severe.

Any how I got home after nearly crashing with starting the engine 20 times. Then with the engine off I pressed the throttle right to the floor and released.- and then restarted. That seemed to work for some reason ??? The Idle is now 100% ok although still a bit rough. But at least does't stall.
I cant see why doing anything to the throttle pedal/cable should affect the idle to be killed.?? even if the cable snapped it should still idle.
NB about 10% of the starts the idle actually idled ok for a few minutes before failing again

Any thoughts greatfully received

I now darent go out!!
