Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

1996 nissan maxima jolts and loss of power Car turns on fine at first, I drive for a while and then the car starts to jolt like gas is trying to get to the carborator but can. It then starts jolting alot, then the horsepower goes to 0 and the car shuts off, showing the battery and oil light. It takes me a few times to get the car running again, will do that jolting thing for a while then it goes back to driving normal. I took it to a mechanic and he stated that when he read the codes it came up as 5 different things that be wrong or it could be something small as a dirty part or something minor. I drive a lot far so I dont want this to happen again.

Engine stops while trying to park, car jolts when going 35+ mph.


Try replacing the sparkplug wires. These are all common symptoms of bad sparkplug wire on a DIS ignition system. I would also suggest changing the fuel filter. I tell all my coustomers to replace their fuel filter at every 3'rd oil change i.e. 80 to 90K. hope this helps:)

When the car gets low on gas while driving it all of a sudden jolts and slows down almost like it is stalling then jolts again back to normal. It does this everytime it gets towards empty.


thats very normal. its because the very little amount of gas in your tank is sliding around the whole time while your driving,,,,,,therefore your gas isn't being picked up by the fuel pump properly.

I had the same issue that has evolved into the car starting and idling for 2-3 seconds then stalling. After doing this five times it won't turn over at all. All the dash lights are on but no turn over. After the car sits for appoximately 15-30 minutes, it starts and runs fine for 3-4 weeks then does it again. I was told this is due to the camshaft and crank position sensors needing replaced.

Corolla kicks/jolts when shifting gears.


I am trying to understand your problem. Check engine mounts. Have a driver in the car, hood open. Start car, foot on brakes, shift from park to reverse and back again. Shift through all gears, look for unusual engine movements around engine mounts area. Left foot on brakes, press gas in drive and reverse;watch for excessive engine movements. Be careful as you perform these steps. You may also want to check drive axles. Keep me updated.
