This is a common problem on 2000 Maxima's but Nissan never recalled the ignition coils. There are 6 ignition coils, one on top of each cylinder where the wires go. The front and back are different designs. Nissan dealers will not replace just one, they will tell you all need to be replaced for about $700. You can purchase only one at any auto supply store and replace yourself if you know which one is misfiring.

2000 Maxima runs rough and is misfiring on cylinder 6


hi , if you are sure the no. 6 cylinder is misfire then change the ignition coil if you are sure but if you are going to buy a new coil better buy all 6 coils and it will last longer if not after no.6 then no.5 or 4,3, until you change all of it .....for rough runs pls flush / change ATF every 20,000 km and change engine oil every 5,000 km , change the exhaust (o2) sensor it make a lot of different , resetting your throttle sensor and speed sensor , all the above must change it with nissan oem part and it not that expensive too.

2000 Nissan mis firing,, code reader shows codes: 0430; 0305; and 1320. Assuming its bank 2 cat convertor. Is this where i should start???


430 is Oxygen sensor

0305 is misfire on cylinder 5

1320 is ignition coil.

The ignition coil is causing the misfire. That is causing rich mixture which could case the oxygen sensor issue. You need to work from the ignition issue to the sensor. The reason is if you replace the cat and the engine is running rich it will heat the cat up to the point that the car might catch fire. Oxygen sensors are also prone to fail after about 60 thousand miles.

1994 nisan maxima misfires and runs rough


Based on what you described, I would say something is blocking oil from reaching the camshafts when the issue happens.
If the lifters run dry the valves won't open.

P1320 service code on 2000 nissan maxima & #5 cylinder misfire or #6 cylinder misfire


2000 maxima are famous for having bad coils - those cost about $350 if you dealer isn't trying to rip you off (otherwise they will charge $600). I also read you can get an aftermarket coil at Autozone.

Hesitation when cold, no power, sometimes runs relatively smooth. Backfires when pushing to floor. You can drive forever being gentle with gas pedal.


you have a misfire occurring is the check engine light on if so you need to do a code retrevial it may tell you which cylinder is misfiring or it may give you a po300 code which just says random cylinder misfire.if this vehicle has not been tuned and has several miles on it you would probably do well with tune up

Misfire on #2 cylinder reading code 1320


It's possible the fuel injector went bad on that cylinder.
My maxima did the same thing until I figured out it was the fuel injector the whole time.

If it's working properly, it should make a clicking noise. Best way to test it to unplug the wire connector to the injector and put 12v to it. It should click every time you appily 12 volts. ( warning, don't take the fuel injector off the fuel rail. GAS & SPARK don't mix)

1999 Nisian Maxima and need to know what codes mean?


P1320 Ignition Signal
Signal wire from distributor
P0325 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)
O2 senor ( The one before the cat converter )
P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
The misfire detection monitor, a software strategy built into the computer, is designed to detect an engine misfire. The computer can also normally identify the specific cylinder in which the misfire has occurred. A misfire is nothing more than a lack of combustion, which can be caused by poor fuel quality or metering, low compression, lack of spark or unmetered air entering the engine. There are other possible, less obvious causes as well, such as uncommanded Exhaust Gas Recirculatin (EGR), flow. When the misfire monitor detects a misfire, it will trigger the check engine light with the specific cylinder number as the last digit in the P030X code. For instance cylinder 1 misfire is P0301, cylinder 2 is P0302 etc. In this case we have either multiple cylinders misfiring, or the computer simply can't determine the specific cylinder, and as such we are left with the P0300 in computer memory.
Possible Causes:
Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect fuel pressure

EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues
