SOURCE: 1990 nissan maxima trunk release switch

Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.
Cheers..

SOURCE: exhast leak 1990 nissan maxima just need gasket

you most likely have broken studs in your cylinder heads. those studs hold the manifold to the head, buut after a while they will break and you have to extract them from the head. not something for novice to be doin, since you may have to be doing some drilling and tapping and if you drill in the wrong manner/way, you can drill into the water jacket, which will create a coolant leak, which can only be fixed by head replacement. i have doone dozens of those manifolds and drilled 100ts of studs.

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.

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

Would it be worth to fix a 95 nissan maxima with a cracked head gasket and 97 thousand miles on it


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.

1990 Nisan Maxima threw all 3 serp. belts-crankshaft pulley went bad. Replaced all of these and then it started to rough idle (head gasket leak?) installed stop leak (ceramic) and it starts well one time...


there is a good possibility that your engine may have ingested some of that antifreeze and if it did thats one of the reasons why your engine idle is rough the reason why its hard to start is becaus the anti freeze is being compressed by the pistons when you start the engine check the tailpipe for white smoke or an antifreeze smell As far as the stop leak its sometimes a temporary fix for a bigger problem .Check your antifreeze level (when it cools down).for a low fluid level
