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.

I have a Toyota Fielder car,but I face a challenge each time I stop up hill and want to drive forward, the vehicle rolls backwards despite being in D-drive. What should I be doing to avoid this?


This is when you need to let the clutch out just enough to stop the backwards roll when you take your foot off the brake, then you can move to the gas pedal and when pressing the gas pedal you can release the clutch all the way to get moving. IT is a matter of practice and timing..

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).

97 dodge caravan start and stall in morning, if warm up 5-10 minutes then no driving problem. if warm up not enough the van will lose idling and stall at stop sign or when my foot is leaving the gas pedal....


The choke function is not working on a cold engine.
1 clean throttle body and IAC motor air pathways.
2. Check for engine codes, you are looking for a code that relatws to the wngine temperature sensor.

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!!
