It may be throttle position sensor or camshaft sensor. Most likely the throttle sensor.

Sounds like your idle air control valve, after time they get dirty and cause low and/or rough idle. They also cause vehicle to just die when idling or taking off from a stop sign. Unforntunately they cannot just be cleaned, as this ruins the finish inside of the unit. Check your local parts store, they can be pretty expensive units to purchase; however, they are usually fairly simple to install, good luck! :)

Rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas


it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

Dies on idle speed,not all the time but some times


Yeap, I would look in the area of IAC valve. However, be carefull. If your Maxima has A/T trans, than your car is set up with ECM (computer) controled engine mounts (electronic engine mounts, which move depending on engine load) to optimize vahicles performance. Those engine mounts seize up and BURN OUT the DRIVER in your ECM (computer) for the IAC circuit, resulting in car dying at times. So, if your car has A/T trans, check your engine mounts for operation with CONSULT2 (nissan based scanner). If mounts are OK, than I would look at the IAC valve and IAVL re-learn along with closed throttle position re-learn. Good luck.
