Decision you will have to make, but my Maxima has 375000 miles now. It has had a starter, maf, now looking at a fuel injector. Not bad for the mileage.

That depends completely on you. It's going to be $400-600 at most shops, but a Nissan of that generation has another 100,000 miles left easily. I'd do it. If you can do it yourself it's even better, but whether you keep it or fix it for sale, based on my experience with Nissan, it'd be a no-brainer. I'd fix it.

I have a 2004 nissan maxima that has a water coolant gasket leak. I'm trying to fix it myself but I don't see any threads explaining how.I really need help


Which gasket is it you are talking about ... a cylinder head gasket or a water pump gasket?

A cylinder head gasket replacement isn't straightfoward or cheap to do and requires a lot of technical ability and tools... In the UK a cylinder head gasket replacement would cost about £1000 - probably the same in US dollars

If it is the cylinder head gasket, try a special additive in the coolant system. The images below are generic. You will find similar products in the USA:

For radiator/block sealant have a look for something like:

However, if you're determined to replace a gasket yourself, it's a workshop manual you need.

When replacing the head gaskets on a 95 Nissan maxima dual overhead can does all the timing components need to be replaced or what all needs to be replaced


Unless it has been replaced recently, I would advise changing the crank seal, cam seals, tensioner and belt, and water pump while you are there.

How to fix water going into oil on 1995 nissan


You might have a cracked timing chain cover, blown head gasket, cracked block, or bad radiator if it has a built in oil cooler. It's hard to say without a cooling system pressure tester.

I have a 2000 Nissan Maxima and it has been leaking coolant come to find out it leaked into the oil. Now car will not start, how do I fix it? Thanks


does car turn over or is it seized-if seized might be better to look for a new ,rebuilt or bone yard motor depending on ur $$$ status---if turns over coolant gets into oil by either bad or cracked intake or intake gasket----blown head or head gasket---cracked cylinder these are the cuses that oil and coolant mix and neither is a simple fix will need to pull motor apar for repair

2003 Nissan Maxima SE 6 Speed oil in coolant overflow bottle. HELP


The big question is - is the car worth fixing to you.
If it is paid for, and you are ok with driving it for another 2 or 3 years, it may be worth fixing. If you are getting tired of driving it, maybe not.
You can find out what it is worth and then decide.
Oil in the coolant with a manual trans car usually means oil from the engine. That can be from any number of places, from a head gasket, intake gasket, a cracked head, and so on.
It may also have an engine oil cooler that runs thru the radiator that could be leaking somehow.
Oil in the coolant is not a major issue by itself, but if it is coming from a gasket or crack it will get worse and cause other major problems over time.

How do I fix a 1990 Nissan maxima head gasket?


to "fix" a head gasket requires taking off the cylinder head and associated compnents, getting the cylinder head serviced to ensure flat surface and no cracks, reaplcing the head gasket, and reassembly ensuring the proper torque of all bolts, especially head bolts........what makes you belive the head gasket requires fixing

1995 Nissan Maxima Over heating, no heat blowing, water not moving


Simple thing to test first would be to pressure check the radiator cap. Next would be to check for combustion gases in the radiator indicating a leaking head gasket.  It is an aluminum head and iron block engine and there is a possibility that antifreeze anti corrosionpackage runs out due to over age then fails due to too long in the engine it results in galvanic corrosion at the head gasket-commonly resulting in a failed head gasket.  There are other engines that are vastly more prone to this than the maxima engine.  If there is a leaking head gasket the gases could rise to the top of the system and block the water flow into the heater.  Listen for gurgling sound in the heater.
