Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
As you had mentioned the fault truly lies in the basic fact that the car gets a fault when it is warm. So before we drvie around if you leave the car to idle , Does the fault occur? If so then we can solve it without much of a strain.
1. Let the car reach the temp for the fault to surface, Now check at this time the spark, the intensity of the spark, if not on the coil. Use a towel wrapped with ICE around the coil and see if the engine powers fine. If so the coil is short for sure. But if the sparks are good then we go to the next option
2. The fuel.: check the fuel filter, fuel pump. make sure that the pump when heated up is reducing pressure and stopping fuel supply. This can happen as the fuel gets lighter. Use the same principle of cooling the pump. If you have a result then the pump for sure is faulty.
I noted that the serrvice tech took the car for a long trial. So I am not sure if the fault occurs when driving? Also does the engine heat up too much or is it in the limit. If not check the radiator pressure cap, the radiator for blocks, water pump or loose fan belts.
The last part could be the electronics, If the spark is irregular or not switching well then there is a high possiblity of a fault over here. Please checck all the cylinders for firing on the plugs to confirm if the cut off is sudden and not irregular.
But the fault must be checked with the fault on to confirm.
I hope this advice helps you to find this annoying failure.

Hi, first, check the fuel pressure to make sure the fuel pump is working. It could be the pump or the relay. If you have sufficient pressure you probably need to look at the distributor for oil on the optics. Now, you did not say if the check engine light was on? If it is on go to Autozone or Checker and get the code read for free and email me back.

The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)
