SOURCE: FILLING UP THE FREON IN MY 2000 NISSAN MAXIMA SE

2000 maxima is filled with R134, not freon. You don't need retro fit kit. Get couple of cans of R134 and pump it into the low side valve /small fiting, while A/C compressor is engaged. If your compressor is not coming on, jump the low side pressure switch to make the compressor come on and than the R134 will get sucked in to your system through the low side line. The proper way to do this is to put a/c system under vaccum for 15 minutes at least and watch for leak/gauges coming/loosing vaccum. Than pump R134 into the HIGH side valve with engine OFF.

it is a cable that links you transmision to the dashboard
i am not sure what the name of the cable is
but if you hold the start position and switch the gears to neutral it will start.

SOURCE: 2005 Nissan Maxima SE Fog light replacement

jorgeva: on the driver's side to gain access, you must remove the air cleaner assembly. At that point, you can see the back of the light which has a plastic cap. Rotate this "counter clockwise" and you can pull it back from the back of the lamp housing. From there you will see how the bulb it self is plugged in, which is obvious. Unplug it. There is a "spring "like latch retainer to hold the bulb in place. Unlatch it, remove the bulb and install the new bulb.
CAUTION!!!!!!! DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS AREA OF THE NEW BULB! Only handle the rear section. Reassemble in the reverse order.
The right side will require the removal of the windshield washer tank.
I trust this will have answered your question. If you would, let me or FIXYA know if I have solved your problem......

SOURCE: How do you bleed the

To bleed the power steering system on your 2004 Nissan Maxima, fill the power steering fluid reservoir to the cold mark. Turn the ignition to the "ON" position. Repeatedly turn the wheels to the left and then to the right, hitting the furthest left and right positions. This process will bleed out any air that has entered the power steering system so that it works consistently. Continue to check the level of the power steering fluid while the engine is hot until the fluid is all gone.

2006 maxima se starts@idle ok but not much power 20 mpg


you may have a restricted catalytic converter plugging up exhaust flow and bogging down the engine. on the vq35 engine there are 2 precats located right under the exhaust manifold and it is then plumbed down the downpipe and into the main catalytic converter. i would remove the downpipe and inspect the the condition of the catalyst.

Whers the starter on my nissan maxima 2004 se


Assuming they used any sense at all when they built that motor it is transverse mounted and the starter is located on the front side where the transmission housing and motor come together. Unfortunately that means it is located partially below the exhaust manifold and you will have to remove most of the intake manifold to get at it.

The rattle that you hear is the upper timing chain tensioners, they can be changed without doing the entire timing chain job, which is really expensive and difficult.
