This is sort of common in this car. Go to Maxima.org for details.

In my 2002 maxima, it blew a head gasket at 85k miles. 2,000 to fix. 5k miles later, it blew again. It is in the shop now getting a different engine.

If it is pinging, most peopple will tell you to put in colder plugs. I would suggest a new MAF (mass air flow sensor). They cost just over $100 and is a easy 30 minute DIY project - or you can pay a mechanic $300 to do it, or the dealer will charge you much more (as usual).

    I have a 2003 Nissan Maxima SE with bad pining at partial throttle (not WOT). I replaced the MAF and it did absolutely nothing. Also a slight correction on the MAF cost mentioned; you cannot get a good quality MAF for less than $220. Anyone with serious knowlege of this problem who can offer an expert solution out there?

Your cataylic conveter is likely on the way out They rattle before they plug up . It may take 6 month or a year before it dose but it sounds like its going .However it also could also be a loose heat sheild on it so get under it and look look for anything loose that could rattle and even if it is the cataylic conveter you still have some time before it goes

I have a Nissan Maxima 2004 3.5 SE. It makes a rattling sound from the engine when I start the it or when the engine is running but idle. I have been told this is the timing chain that needs to be...


The rattle that you hear is the upper timing chain tensioners, they can be changed without doing the entire timing chain job, which is really expensive and difficult.

Clicking noise coming from the Engine and car shakes when stoppin


Probably a disc brake pad scraping on a warped rotor as it goes around. When you apply the brakes the warped rotor causes the car to pulse or shake as the rotor goes around and applies the brake unevenly. You need a front brake job.

I have a 2003 nisan maximawhen accelerating I hear


You hear clicking from the engine. If it increases in speed when you accelerate and decreases as you slow down, try listening for it in park. If the sound continues you need to take it to a shop. If the sound is only present when you are moving you need to have your CV joints checked.

Engine will not start


That Clicking Sound is Coming from the Starter. First check the Starter Relay. It should be in a Fuse Relay Box under the Hood. If this is good, The Problem will be the Starter and will need to be Replaced. Also Check the Tension on the Belt. If the Belt is even a little loose it will not allow the Alternator to Charge the Battery and will cause a Not Start. Let me know what you find out. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help I can get! Thanks!
