2000 maxima wont start after changing MAF, the parts store run a diagnostic and it was the MAF, it ran but wouldnt idle Ive put two new MAF and all it does is turn over but wont start

It is not the maf. What is the actual trouble code in the computer? The parts store guys are not mechanics, but they'll sell you lots of parts before your car is working again.

Code 0400 on 2000 maxima, says EGR valve, can it be cleaned or do i need to replace to get check engine light off?

it can be cleaned but if you take it to a shop they will say they want to replace it with a new one. do your research on your local shops to be sure they will clean it.

Maxima 1995 30g auto v6 3000 engine cranking but not starting starter motor ok ring gear ok could it be a fuse or relay


Do not replace anything, until you have your vehicle's diagnostic codes (OBD) read.

It's possible the crank or camshaft sensor faulty, but your on board diagnostic computer will identify the likely cause.

Your local dealership (or authorised agent who has proper scan tool) will be able to read the codes for you and will not take more than 15 mins.

Hi, I have, 2001 Nissan Maxima. Get check engine lite. Car now has 60k miles. Local mechanic had already replaced two O2 sensors 9 months ago. I don't know what the codes were at that time. Check Engine...

renew the O2 sensors to start with and just hope that its a bad sensor on this bank they can break down prematurely .Luck of the draw their when buying new parts iam afraid your not the only one to buy new parts and have them go early .

Engine light has been turned off repeatedly by local mechanic but keeps coming back on. Car has 142,000 miles and needs to be inspected, but won't pass inspection with engine light on

Check Lights have been on vehicles for 25 to 30 years.
You don't clear or turn off,until you retrieve codes and repair the issues that set the lamp.
Your vehicle isn't being diagnosed and repaired

My 2000 Nissan Maxima, from time to time, only runs on 5 cylinders. When it malfuntions, the "TCS Off" and "Slip" lights come on as well as the Service Engine Soon light. My son has replaced the coils....

identify thru computer which cylinder is the culprete then check for injector winding problems, bad grounds , have your local tech check for t.s.b. on this problem? also have you replaced the plugs?

What causes a car not accelerate properly

I know common issues for the the 2000 Maximawas the Mass Air Flow sensor and the coils. I think both of them triggered a Service Engine Soon light.

My 2002 Maxima has had no issues yet (only 70k miles, unlike the 180k on the 2000).
