If it occurs as the same rpm, it's either valve chatter, caused by worn valve seals or worn piston rings, or it's your timing chain. If there's slack from a stretched/worn timing chain, it will slap at certain rpms (usually between 1700 & 2000). A qualified nissan mechanic can usually tell the difference by listening to the engine.

You hear clicking from the engine. If it increases in speed when you accelerate and decreases as you slow down, try listening for it in park. If the sound continues you need to take it to a shop. If the sound is only present when you are moving you need to have your CV joints checked.

How do I replace the mass airflow sensor on a 2004 Maxima?


The mass air flow sensor will be in the air intake going to the throttle body. Look for a 3-4" hose, trace that back to a box looking component. The sensor should be in there.

1990 maxima when I shift there is no sounds and nothing happens


If you press the accelerator, you hear the engine going up but it does not move then it is probably a trans problem.

There is a sensor on the hand brake wiring, that wont let the gear start, when no gear is engaging, that is usually cause for the problem.

2003 Maxima Rattle / Rattling 1500 to 2000 RPM


what you are hearing is a spark knock or detonation. its not going to hurt anything or cause any damage. if you want to get rid of it than run out all the fuel that you have and fill up with super and see if it changes with premium gasoline. if you look at the fuel door on the inside, it sais premium fuel recommended. also stay with NGK (nissan)spark plugs. You may also need the r/h side rocker cover. the one by the fire wall. the seals inside the cover leak oil into the spark plug hole and you will need to replace it if you find oil in the hole. let me know what you find.
