Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

The car will not hold rpm.

I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima, and recently all of a sudden the service engine light came on and the rmp droped to 0 and the car died out. So basically as soon as i let go of the gas pedal the car dies out. If i keep th pedal pressed it runs good. Any suggestions to what could be the problem and how much it would cost , or if any cheaper means of getting it fixed. Thanks alot for the help

If you check engine light is on the computer has a code to show what sensor is having issues or perhaps is broken.

If you can keep the car running by staying on the gas pedal its most likely a broken throttle position sensor or a broken idle air control.

Throttle position sensors *(TPS for short) are high wear since they are mechanically changing position everytime you move the gas pedal. The idle air control is less likely but still a possiblity.

Find an autoparts store that will read your on board diagnostic code *(called OBD 2 for short) for free and see if the code is something that just requires a new part.

TPS for a Nissan Maxima is 130-150 bucks! So doing this cheap is not going to be easy! The idle air control is over 200 bucks! Yipes!

Good luck with your repair and be careful!

Nissan Maxima 1996 Engine oil turns milky white


Sounds like you may have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. There are test that can be done to check this the easiest and cheapest method I use is drope a few dropes of oil from your engine on something hot like the exhaust if it boils there is good indication there is coolant in your oil as the flash point of coolant is a lower temperature than oil

My maxima will not go past 20 mph and my rpm keeps going down to 0 the more i press the gas


Is it getting gas, will it rev in park? I'd have fuel pressure tested, or maybe try to get to an autozone, or Pep Boys and have free trouble code scan performed to see if anything comes up to point you in the right direction. Has it been regularly serviced? Did it just happen suddenly? No check engine lights or similar on at dash?

the dash voltage egulator probably went bad. First,check the battery & make sure you have 12 volts,not running. Check it again running & you should see about 14.5 volts. If that's good,I'd replace the guage assembly.
