If this model has a disributor,remove the distibutor cap and look to see if the distributor is filled with oil<if so,you will have to replace the distibutor with a new one.The seal in the distibutor has worn out,and it is leting oil come threw.The seal is not available.I hope this helps you.

My 95 maxima every time start is very rough but when accelerate at 3000 rpm it runs very smooth it does it every time hot or cold


Could be anything from air leak(s) to fuel pressure or injector spray patterns or even the onset of valve problems.

I suggest starting with a tuneup and hope the result is good. If not the tuneup should provide clues where to look for the actual fault(s).

I did say faults because when a car has had 20 years of service and it has a problem, the problem is often a combination of more than one "nearly" fault and perhaps several that adds up to a Problem.

Runs smooth then runs rough & rough back to smooth running.


If your check engine light comes on get it checked. To me it sounds like an engine misfire probably cause by a coil pack or spark plug wire going bad. The misfire should cause the check engine light to come on maybe even flash if the misfire is bad enough

2000 Maxima runs rough and is misfiring on cylinder 6


hi , if you are sure the no. 6 cylinder is misfire then change the ignition coil if you are sure but if you are going to buy a new coil better buy all 6 coils and it will last longer if not after no.6 then no.5 or 4,3, until you change all of it .....for rough runs pls flush / change ATF every 20,000 km and change engine oil every 5,000 km , change the exhaust (o2) sensor it make a lot of different , resetting your throttle sensor and speed sensor , all the above must change it with nissan oem part and it not that expensive too.

1995 jeep gr cherokee laredo jumps when first star in morning and runs rough when ac or heat on


my guess, car unseen.
car has an A/T trans, and all A/T jump from park to drive
selection is made on a cold engine, due to the very fast idle speed.
what was the park and cold idle speed. and out door temps.
the lower out door temps, make idle speed , cold engine, even higher
but when the engine reaches 180F or more and holds, the RPM
is about 800 RPM (the FSM tells the exact amount and does vary for the unstated engine option) so at 800 the tranny don;t lurch, did it on a hot engine. so if idle speeds are wrong say so and say it with engine temps. or its all meaningless.
next :
runs rough, the engine (even parked?) is called misfire.
misfire on a good engine (full compression)
is:
1: bad spark (or never had a tune up ever) every 60k miles.
2: bad fueling. too rich, too lean (low idle) bad injectors (stuck or clogged, or wrong fuel pump pressure or bad Fuel pressure regulator)
3: bad fuel.

there is a test for each possible failure. all very simple test.
it takes $80 in gauge tools to find engine problems.

Random multiple misfire code. Cat gets glowing red hot. Sluggish lack of power/acceleration


Combining the hot cat converter and the missfire code, I would lean toward a fuel problem. Too lean or pressure too low.
If it was an ignition problem the cat would usually not be hot.
If the exhaust was stopped up, you would not usually get the multiple missfire issue. Just lack of power.
It could be a leaking EGR or other vac problem, and a dirty fuel filter too.

2000 nissan maxima misfires on cold start repaced


Try spraying an aerosol oil around the intake manifold and around any vacuum lines and connections with the engine running. If you hear a change in the engine speed than you've got a vacuum leak. Thank you, Dana
