I will assume that by smoke you are referring to a white in color cloud emitted from the exhaust,
which is steam as i believe what you have is a blown head gasket.
check your radiator level .
pull your oil dip stick is it white and pastie ,water in the oil??

The best test is a compression test.
Blue smoke means it's burning oil, due to worn out piston rings.
White smoke means it's mixing antifreeze and oil due to a bad head gasket or cracked head or block.

04 Nissan maxima tail lghts don't always come on right away thought maybe headlight switch not sure need help


Download 2004 Nissan Maxima Lighting System Section LT PDF Manual 190 Pages Do you know how to do electrical testing with volt ohm meter ? Do you know what a BCM is ? COMPUTER !
Control of the parking, license plate, and tail lamp operation is dependent upon the position of the lighting switch (combination switch). When the lighting switch is placed in the 1ST position, the BCM (body control module) receives input signal requesting the parking, license plate, side marker and tail lamps to illuminate. This input signal is communicated to the IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) across the CAN communication lines. The CPU (central processing unit) of the IPDM E/R controls the tail lamp relay coil. This relay, when energized, directs power to the parking, license plate, rear side marker and tail lamps, which then illuminate.
Testing starts at 134

Why is my nissan maxima loosing power when driving


This sounds like you may need to change your spark plugs. I am not sure of your fuel of choice, but 93 which is a high octane should work better, and dont for get to warm the engine before driving.

1996 nissan maxima has no dash lights and no tail lights all fuses are good


The only thing that both circuits use is the headlight switch.
I would start there checking for power on those two circuits.
The tail lights are actually parking lights so the front and back are on the same circuit.

When my nissan maxima 2005 is runnig little white smoke is coming from tail pipe


If you have never experience the white smoke before and I am under the assumption that you are the original owner, and depending on your service record of changing the oil as scheduled then the only conclusion I can come up with is the following. You have a very high mileage vehicle and there is a little oil burning. Secondly will be there is a crack in which cooling liquid is entering the engine and making that smoke like that. Good Luck!
