More than likely, the culprit will be one of the ignition coils located on top of your spark plug. each plug has it's own coil and can be changed individually. Be prepared to change out multiple coils, especially if it's hard to get to it. You won't want to replace another one later when you already had access. You can expect to pay anywhere from $80 - $150 for one coil. While your at it, you may as well get some spark plugs and replace those too. No sense having to take everything apart again to fix a worn or faulty plug!

SOURCE: FILLING UP THE FREON IN MY 2000 NISSAN MAXIMA SE

2000 maxima is filled with R134, not freon. You don't need retro fit kit. Get couple of cans of R134 and pump it into the low side valve /small fiting, while A/C compressor is engaged. If your compressor is not coming on, jump the low side pressure switch to make the compressor come on and than the R134 will get sucked in to your system through the low side line. The proper way to do this is to put a/c system under vaccum for 15 minutes at least and watch for leak/gauges coming/loosing vaccum. Than pump R134 into the HIGH side valve with engine OFF.

it would not hurt to check rear tire wear due to misalignment
cupped tires will cause a faulty bearing type noise or humming.

SOURCE: error code P0340

lionelloopho: P0340 is a Cylinder signal not getting to the ECM, momentarily while the engine is being cranked.
According to Nissan's diagnostic chart, the recommend checking the following: Harness connectors for the cam positioning sensor,
The sensor it self, The starter, for excessive draw.
The battery for weakness.
Nissan did have a service bulletin out on hard cranking problems.
The symptoms include difficult starting ans spark knock (very sharp rattling sound)
The bulletin reference number is: NTB95-090 You can check with Nissan because the solution warrants the replacement of the ECM.
You may have to tell a little white lie and tell them you have been living with the problem for quite a while because no one has been able to solve the problem and you have just now heard of this bulletin.
Good Luck and let me know how you make out, I'm pretty sure this is the solution.

SOURCE: Car: Nissan Maxima SE 1997 tachometer broken

the dash voltage egulator probably went bad. First,check the battery & make sure you have 12 volts,not running. Check it again running & you should see about 14.5 volts. If that's good,I'd replace the guage assembly.

I would check that spark plug, and have that coil checked or replaced. Also check for any vacuum hose leaks in the area of the cylinder.

The most likely problem is with the signals the pcm is getting from the crankshaft or camhaft position sensors. The problem could be the sensor itself, the tone ring that spins next to the sensor, or the wiring. Inspect the wiring and connectors, tone rings, and sensor installation carefully. If visual looks good, there are some tests you can run at the link below.

1999 nissan maxima bad fuel smell and fuel coming out tailpipe


Hello Anonymous,

Were I you... (my best guess)
I would be looking for a BLOCKED EXHAUST...

(in my opinion)
probably the number one REASON AUTOZONE
sells so many (pointless) OXYGEN SENSORS...

Those new OXYGEN SENSORS Pretty much
complain as well as the old ones did...

The logical equivalent of buying a NEW
THERMOMETER
... because you have a fever.

Check out the whole system costs on AMAZON,
eBay & rockauto... BEFORE waltzing into any
exhaust shop...

Catalog:
http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/nissan,1999,maxima,3.0l+v6,1356780,exhaust+&+emission

Catalytic converters ($$) C.A.R.B. Compliant available
1999 NISSAN MAXIMA 3 0L V6 Catalytic Converter RockAuto

C.A.R.B. specific details (2 day ship'n, About $280)
More Information for DAVICO 169750

Exhaust shop should be able to test...
(OXYGEN SENSORS... save your $$$$ = nah)
Hope this helps

Engine misfiring, 2000 Nissan Maxima 3.0 engine


Misfire.
You will need to get the car plugged with a diagnostic computer to see what is engine is saying.
It could be number of things. it could have blocked one of your fuel injector which is causing the car to misfire.

Thanks

Posible throttle assembly/throttle actuator failure. This car has an electronic throttle, not cable operated. We have seen some issues with those and the car will do exactly what you are descibing. Revs up to about 2500 and goes only 10mph. Just a tip.
