Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Nissan maxima I really need some help. I have posted here before about my 99 maxima and it still has problems. The starter went out and we replaced it. After it was replaced it was hard to start. Since then I have replaced the iat sensor. Checked the fuel pump (psi is 42) had the bat and alt checked they are good. good spark and no bad plugs. no vacuum leaks. We took it to a shop and they said that it was the starter but the starter is new. They all said that the car wouldn't start at all and it started up with no problems. But now we are bad to hard start. Cold start it can take up to 5 mins. once it is warm it starts better but still not right. The check engine light doesn't come on after I got it back from the shop the check engine light was on and it said something about the iat sensor reset it since it is new and haven't had the check engine light on again. Please help if there is anyone that knows what is wrong. A shop can't even figure it out. It is possible my ecm needs replaced or maybe the fuel pump. I just don't know what to do and am running out of funds to get it fixed.

    what about the coolant temperature sensor?

    Try resetting the computer completely, Disconnect the negative battery cable for a few minutes to let the computer clear. Does the new starter seem to spin as fast as the original?

My 95 maxima was just cuttn out on me and would go dead but usually move battery cables a little and it would crank, however we changed cable ends on battery, crank it and dtove doen the road, it went dead...

Battery went dead? If this is the case you probably have a dead short.Should pull starter possibly bad solinoid, My old Maxima had caused me similar issue, if you pull starter it usually can be tested at a local Auto parts store. In a vehicle that fails to start, the common problems are the starter solenoid and the starter motor. The starter assembly can be quickly pulled from a 1995 Nissan Maxima, and then can be further separated to replace one part of the starter assembly.The process does not require any special tools, and can be done by novice mechanics

I have had my 1996 nissan maxima for a few days and i moved it out of the drive way for my girlfriend to leave and when i went out there about 15 minutes later it wouldnt start. the battery is fine, what...

Sounds like a starter that has given up the ghost to me. However, I would still test the battery and check all of the cable connections before replacing the starter. (Unless you have performed a proper load test on the battery, you really do not know that it is any good.)

Sounds like your solinoid is bad on your startermotor. Replace with known good starter. If you want to check it out then pull the startermotor take it to your local auto parts store and they can verify it.

99 nissan maxima trys to start but does not turn over when starting car with key. but it starts every time when roll started (poping clutch)? i have had three highly recomended mechanics look at it and put...

Sometimes changing a starter can be trickier than you think. Different manufacturers supply "multi-car", for lack of a better word, starters. The same starter is used on different makes and models and they aren't always perfect. What can happen (I see it all the time) is that the nose cone of the starter doesn't insert into the bell housing right and needs to be shimmed to line it up on the flywheel correctly. It can be a tedious trial and error process getting your shim thickness just right. 1 mm of difference can either put too much pressure on the starter shaft for it to turn smoothly or that same mm, on the other end of the spectrum, will keep you from getting positive contact to your flywheel. If your control module, starter, ignition switch (check there too), and engine are all good then this is VERY likely to be your problem. If not, attach a comment to let me know and I'll help you figure that ****** out! I have to question a mechanic who would let you dump $3000 without KNOWING that you needed too. All of the parts that you replaced could have been tested first and saved you a lot of money. Don't go back there.
