Question about 1990 Nissan Maxima

2 Answers

1990 Nissan Stanza 2.4 Liter Engine miss. This is a used car we just bought, has 112,000 miles on it and it only happens when I put the transmission in drive or reverse. It does not happen when in park. The engine smoothes out while driving and does not seem to have any loss of power while driving under load etc. It seems to happen whether the car is cold or warmed up. The transmission shifts properly and is an automatic. What are the possible remedies? Vacuum Lines? Spark Plug Wires?

I would change the spark plugs and wires first. Please use NGK Spark Plugs, (Nissan's do not like any other brand) try that and see what happens,

I would also change the fuel filter and check the air filter to see if it us dirty.

Could just need a tune up,you could also pull of the distributor cap and look for oil intrusion, if there is you will need to replace the distributor

Transmission fluid is pour out near the back of the transmission on my automatic 2.4 liter 1990 nissan stanza. what possible problems does that tell me about?


One of your axle shaft seals or the speed sensor o-ring is leaking. Those are the only three things back there that can be leaking. Have them all checked out and replaced as needed.

97 k1500 5.7 liter vortec misses on cylinders 3 and 5 while idling. about 1500 rpm only cylinder 3 and 4 miss then at 2000 rpm only cylinder 4 and 8 miss. what could cause this?


I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now
