Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Acceleration is shady ... Gears act funny...

I have 2000 NISSAN MAXIMA SE (5 spd manual w/ 158,200 miles)... When first started after hours of not driving, first gear is extremely shady and needs warming upon before it can be engaged smoothly and the RPM's climb just fine, but 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th are very concerning... Flooring the gas pedal in these gears does NOT respond as it should (used to). The car drives faster in these gears when I barely apply pressure to the gas as opposed to flooring it... when I do floor it, it feels VERY odd... PLEASE someone help me as I have already put A LOT of money into car repairs. Thank you.

I would start by checking the mass air flow sensor or put a scan tool and checking live data.long trim and short trim fuel. may need a dealerfor that.

Somtimes its hard to srart and sluggisg 2000 maxima


If U haven't replaced the spark plug with that many miles I would start there. If that doesn't help U may have a bad coil pack with every spark plug has one, its what U first see when going to replace your plugs on top of manifold. Or it may be the fuel filter/sending unit.

Hope this is helpful

When hitting passing gear no acceleration feels like it is trying


Proably one of your Coils has gone out. This generally happens with this car aroung 60,000 miles. These are coil on plug coils, which means you have 6. Nissan will want to replace all for $600+. Check this out for more details
