It's not like older cars with a distributor cap with a coil. the spark timing is done by computer and crank and cam sensors. there are separate coils per plug, and usually when the coils go bad, they lose contact when the heat expands them. but having all 6 go at the same time is a bit far fetched. i think it's the engine control computer (about $450 from autozone). but you can go to autozone or advance auto and borrow their tester and check the fault codes.

Change your Mass Air Sensor if it has not been replaced, or you can try to clean it out.

Why is my nissan maxima loosing power when driving


This sounds like you may need to change your spark plugs. I am not sure of your fuel of choice, but 93 which is a high octane should work better, and dont for get to warm the engine before driving.

How to change oil on 90 nissan maxima


Park the car on a level surface, let the engine warm up, Locate the engine-oil pan under the car, and remove the drain-plug. Put a container under the oil-pan to collect the old oil. Remove the oil-filler cap on top of engine head-cover. Remove the oil-filter by the engine block. You could grab it with one hand and turn counter-clockwise. While waiting all oil to drain out, smear some new engine oil on the new oil-filter 'o'-ring, and screw it back in place. Tighten 3/4 turn after the o-ring hits the engine surface.
Clean the drain-plug with a clean rag and tighten back in place-not over-tighten it!. Put back about 3-quarts of new engine oil through the oil-filler cap, and hand tighten the cap. Start the engine and look for leaks. After a few hours later, check the oil level. You are done!

2004 Nissan Maxima Intermittent Transmission Problem?


I don't know exactly how the nissans work with their "limp" mode for what gear it goes into and such. This sounds like the computer is sensing a problem and going into the "limp" mode. Go get the code pulled to see what is says. If it has anything saying trans slipping or ratio problem then something internal in the the trans is wrong. Also, check the trans fluid and see if its burnt ( dark brown or black).

check the battery terminals. Sounds like their loose. If they are dirty, take em off and clean em. Then when you tighten them up, put some petroleum jelly on them so they won't corride again.
