Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
I have a 2000 nissan maxima, with traction control.
Long story short.
It blew its transmission and I had the transmission replaced.
It started fine at first.. Then it had some trouble starting, then it wouldn't start at all. It just clicked, so I had the starter replaced.
After the starter replacement, it would crank, but not start.
MOST OF THE TIME.
One out of 15 times, it would start and run fine.
Next step, I took it to another mechanic, they couldn't figure it out and sent me to the dealer to get a diagnostic.
I got the diagnostic and the dealer reported a problem with ECM and the IAC (air intake control).
I went and bought a new ECM and IAC and returned it to the mechanic with the instructions.
They put in the ECM and it still wouldn't start.
Then they replaced the cam angle sensor and the crank angle sensor.
Still no dice.
The mechanic is mystified and cant figure out what is going on because according to their diagnostic tool, everything is fine.
He has not put in the new AIC yet (actually, it's the whole throttle body assembly)..
I'm not sure if I want to pay him to try, if that wont solve the problem. I'm down almost 4 grand on this car now.. It would **** to lose that.
Any ideas? Should I cut my loses and give up?
Fire your mechanic its just a bad relay. most likely the fuel pump relay or a ground wire is loose. now pay me
