Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

2 Answers

My 95 Nissan Maxima 4dr. V6 automatic dies while driving down the road once it get warm or the guage is on the half way mark. It starts right up again and again. If I let it cool for an hour it will drive again for 30 minutes or til it gets warm again. I cannot drive it more than 20-30 minutes before this happens. The Elk Grove Nissan Dealer could not solve the problem. they switched out the coil with no affect. they kept it 3 days and got it to repeat the problem and the tech almost did not make it back to the shop from 25 miles away. Any advice would be appreciated. Arnold

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.
Good day

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.

2012 maxima will start, but won't idle and dies after a few seconds. Has been running perfectly until this morning.


Check the fuel lines and unions for small air leaks (smell of fuel) also check fuel filters for partial blockages P.S CHECK THE FUEL GAUGE FIRST.

My 1998 nissan maxima wants to die and acts like it running got of gas when driving ,we have just replaced the fuel pump and filter but it did not fix the problem


Hello
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)

Your catalitic convertor is plugging up. you need to replace it. Also you need to find out why it got that way. Could be bad vacuum lines. some sort of vacuum leak after the throttle body/ carb.

You did not say if automatic or manual.
I would guess DextronII if automatic, and 80w-90 hypoid gear oil if manual.

you have to eliminate several items
one at a time.
but it all comes down to three things air, fuel and fire.(spark)
disconect the gas line and see if the fuel pump is pumping at rated pressure you mayneed a gage for that, gas is dangerous be very careful dumping any amounts about, or disconect and see it squirt into a container ,again be careful. if you are confident that the streem of gas is strong. then it is not the fuel pump.
spark? The sensor for the spark plugs may be a pcm system which is a pulse hall effect sensor that sends a signal though a coil in the distributor. the steel in the coil may be getting rusty and swelling ( steel swells if it rusts ) the mettal plates in the center of the coil may be expanding and now are stretching the copper in the coil so now they are broken but just touching enough to run untill it gets to hot ( mettle expands when hot ) causing the hall effect sensor not to work propery all the time.
check the air cleaner for a proper filter to be clean.
mostly it is either fuel or spark.
