Nissan maxima 1994 rough idle

Start with one bottle of yellow HEET dry gas to rule out moisture in fuel tank.
Check your battery age tag. Most battery can last up to 48 months.
An aged/old battery will cause sign problem to ECU.
Next item to check is idle air control motor.
Engine on and all electrical off
Next turn on ALL electrical items at the same time.
high beams,radio,A/C,fan at full blast
An IAC that can not raise the idle will cause the problem you are encountering.

Please start with HEET and rule out aged battery first.
IAC is expensive component to replace.

2001 Nissan Maxima- runs rough, stalls when idle

Timing belt could have skipped a tooth.

Horrible vacuum leak could have started. Listen for suction noises when you raise the hood.

Someone could have poured sugar in your tank.

You could have put diesel in your tank instead of gas.

Could be a bad MAP sensor, TPS sensor, etc.

Need more details to be precise.
