My 95 Nissan Maxima has trouble starting in cold have to press on gas to get it to start

I suspect you may not have enough fuel pressure.Fuel injection requires very high pressure to start car and by pumping the gas pedal the car is flooding itself and that let's it start.

i would suggest you contact a dealer and tell them what happened they may tell you to bring it in and that may be a good idea when it comes to these computerized vehicles it's not always a good idea to disconnect the positive cable to check to see if the alternator is faulty it may have caused another problem doing so. The best way to check for a charge is with a machine that detects the charging system is operational

We purchased a 1998 Saab 900 SE Turbo for my son. Within 6 weeks, the engine went. The engine was replaced. 4-5 months later, all the warning lights were on. The car still started and did run. The SAAB...


I'm sad to hear that you're having so much trouble with the car :(

Your problem is (almost certainly) not related to the alternator or the starter.
Your engine seems to lack fuel, air or spark, either due to a clogged hose/valve somewhere or a quirky electrical connection/relay.

Have you made sure that the fuel pump is supplying sufficient pressure when the problem is present?
Can you hear the pump when turning on the ignition?
If the pump (and its relay) seems ok you should make sure you have spark when the problem is present. If there's no spark the problem should be easily traced, probably to a intermittently faulty sensor or a faulty coil.
If both fuel and spark check out ok there is probably something wrong with the air supply when attempting a warm-start.

The things mentioned above are things you can check out yourself without high costs or special tools (you'll need a multimeter if you want to check voltages, but that's a cheap tool that might come in handy).

Oh and the car also has a check valve to keep pressure in the fuel lines. These valves can cause problems similar to yours, so you might want to check it out.

Good luck mate!

1991 nissan maxima/ only occasionally during cold will not start

If it happens only when it rains it means that water or moisture is getting under the distributor. The distributor needs to be replaced. Good Luck. Let me know how it turns out.
