Whne it makes a grinding noise it will be an indication it's going bad but it could be the fly wheel and woul have to look at the teeth to make sure that the flywheel is ok, if could be the bendix going bad but you can take it to a auto partsstore to have it teste and they cna give yo a better ideal and not costing anything.

The starter motor on my 2007 Maxima SE started making a funny knocking sound, and at the same time the fuel gauge quit working... Help!

I don't see how those could be related. Are you sure it is the starter motor and not the engine making the noise? You might want a mechanic to listen and determine that. It could be a worn out starter, I suppose. You would have to pull it off to test if it is bad. You could then put jumper cables on it from your battery-the negative (ground) would go on the starter case, while the positive would go to the small wire hook-up on the starter solenoid. If starter is good, it will spin and the end piece will push out while it is spinning. If the cables cause it to buck and knock, then you know it needs replacing. That is a home test, you could also take the starter to a parts store and have it tested for free (on a machine).

I don't know about the fuel gauge. It is not related to the starter or engine noise. Usually, a non-working fuel gauge is the gauge itself, or more often the sender unit in the tank. Or even rarer to find a wiring problem from the instrument panel to the gas tank. Good luck.

How do I change the starter in a 2000 Nissan?

you will have to remove the battery, the air intake assembly and air filter housing for access to the starter which goes into the flywheel on the transmission to the right of the motor when looking under hood from front of car. you will probably need a variety of extensions and a universal joint for your sockets will help reaching the mounting bolts easier.

2000 Nissan Maxima will not start. Got home from work and stop at the mail boxes and when I tired to start the car it would not turn over. It clicks once and nothing happens. The interior, dash, and head...

HI there .... by the sounds of what you are saying, you have a bad starter. One way to find out for sure is if you can get at the starter, tap it with a hammer and then try starting or have someone try to start the car while you are tapping on the starter. if the car starts then you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out

Can a cam sensor cause a hard start

Yes, cam sensor can cause a hard starting condition, but not that common on a 2000 maxima. I haven't replaced single one on a 2000 Max and I have one also (maxima that is) . Never had any problem with cam or crank sensors. I think that your problem is somewhere else, like IAC valve circuit. Just a tip. Its kinda hard to diagnose something over the computer, without Consult2 (Nissan scanner) beeing hooked up to the car and seeing what the car is doing while cranking for my self.
