Question about 2005 Nissan Maxima

Engine stops when braking and car slows down or when waiting at a traffic light; after the engine stops, the brake light and check engine lights are on the dashboard; also the sign showing a dripping canister is on on the dashboard; after turning the ignition of it sometimes restarts right away, other times it restarts after several tries. Any idea what could the problem be?

Look in the owners manual for the explaination of the "dripping cannister" icon. May be low oil or water symbol.

check for a vacuum leak to the brake booster as it appears that the fuel/air mixture is going too lean to keep the engine running.

Steering wheel vibrates when Im stopped at a light


You may have front brake rotors which are slightly warped. The ABS only comes into play under very hard brakeing conditions. Typically you may also feel a slight pulse in the brake pedal as you slow down.That would be my best guess.If you have a vibration when you are stopped, that may be a motor mount issue. Either the front and/or rear mount may be weak.They are designed to isolate small engine vibrations you might feel when the car is at a stand still The motor mounts are designed to isolate small engine vibrations at a stand still at idle as well as limit the amount of travel the engine can make under a load. As a car gets older, the rubber which is what the mounts are made of get harder and often collapse slightly and can cause your condition because they are no longer plyable.Maybe this might shed some light on your problem. Good luck.

My car stops verry often especially when i reduce the speed to the traffic light.Could be the fuell filter?or the petrol got dirt in it.


I suspect a vacuum leak -probably in the brake booster-which is making the engine run lean and cut out. Try coasting up to the lights with out your foot on the brake and see if it cuts out when you apply the brake to stop. Run fault codes to check for a sensor fault.

I have a 2000 Volvo s80 turbo, I think I may have two troubles here, first when im driving in traffic the car is starting to die when I'm slowing down, if my foot is not completely on the brake...


Check for vacuum leaks. Also make sure any air intake boots are on tightly. If not, this could give faulty readings to the MAF.

Is an engine light on? If so, get the codes pulled free at an auto parts store.

ABS seems to kick back on brake peddle at slow speeds


low speed activation of abs[will not set off code ] can also do brake studder without touching brake usually does it under 5 mph the problem is one of the sensors is dirty or has some corrosion on it ===chevy back in 2000 did a partial recall on the tahoe for the same problem the fix was to remove the sensor and clean it if the corrosion was to bad than sensor was replaced === the problem with no code is u dont know which sensor is causing problem u would need to remove both and check them

No brake lights on 95 Suburban


Bad or borken wire harness in the steering coloum. check power to brake switch, should have power on one side, if not check the fuse if fuse is good and you have no power then your turn signal switch or harness is bad.

Brakes


Don't wait until the last moment to put your brakes on. When you know you're going to have to stop, get off the gas and LIGHTLY, apply the brakes to start the slow down process. Putting a lot of pressure on the brakes to stop a vehicle causes them to wear out. I normally get about 80,000 from a set of brakes. I've been driving this way since 1970.
