Question about 1998 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I have a 98 maxima 3.0 automatic it seems when you try to step on the gas it has no power and takes a long time to get up to speed. also in traffic or low speeds, or going up ridge it seems like it wants to go into passing gear it jerks back in forth. also same problem when it sifts into 3rd gear it makes a loud noise and you can feel it.

You may need to have your transmission fluid drained and changed the filter. If that doesnt work, you may need additional tranny work.

2000 Nissan Maxima Overheating


Hi. Your radiator fan motor may be seized. Should ingage between 95-100 degrees when you parked on idle after achieving full working temp. If it doesn't, check fuse first and than relay responsible for cooling fan( you can find cavity in your owner manual. Let me know. The reason you car is ok while driving is the air going thru your radiator. When you stoped or parked for longer time with no speed there is nothing to cool your radiator. Fix it asap or eventually will cause engine over hit and seize.

Regulator problems


clean the air filter and oxygen sensor located in the duct leading to the air filter. buy a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner from autozone. if that doesnt work then completely replace the mass air flow sensor , if that still doesnt work try replacing the oxygen sensor. also try putting seafoam. in your gas tank from autozone itll clean out your injectors.and if your still having problems stalling and not restarting then it could be your timing belt and you might need a whole new engine, i had to put a whole new engine in mine becuase the timing was off.
