Trade it in.the amount you will spend straighting the frame,on top of part's and labour to do motor work is about the same as car is worth.

How can I disable the abs brakes on a 2006 Nissan maxima


I do not have any first hand experience with the Nissan Maxima but have pulled a 60 amp fuse in the box under the hood on Chevy trucks. Here is what I found on the web which may be helpful to you. First the link and then the text:
http://x.nissanhelp.com/forums/maxima/9112-06-maxima-abs-issue.html

The problem is corrosion in the rear hubs is causing the sensors to be pushed out of alignment with the sensor ring. DO NOT continue to drive the car with this problem. It will burn out the abs controller. That part costs $1300.00. First thing you should do is open the hood of the vehicle and follow the wire for the right front abs sensor. You will see a plug above where the motor mount connects to the passenger inner fender area. Unplug that connector. It will disable the abs system so the pump will stop running.

If you are mechanically inclined you could repair this. The rear hubs need to be removed and cleaned. Also the plastic cap behind the hub needs to be modified. After removing the hub you will be able to remove the plastic cap behind it. You will see a hole in the cap where the sensor goes through it. Cut the top portion of the cap so the hole looks like a U and reinstall it. Clean the corrosion around the bearing mating surfaces and reinstall the rest of the parts. Do this for both rear wheels. Be sure to reconnect the front sensor after the repairs are made. You will need to have the codes cleared after repairing. __________________

Timing chain 96 maxima broke


Check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing chain. Replacement for a Nissan Maxima is 60,000 miles.2 Locate the timing chain. Replace it if the automatic chain adjuster (also known as the tensioner) is damaged or worn.3 Release the pressure in the fuel system, drain the cooling system and disengage the negative battery cable. 4 Undo the upper radiator hose, engine drive belts, power steering pulley and pump with bracket, air duct, passenger front wheel and engine side and undercovers, front exhaust pipe, cylinder head front mounting bracket and head cover, rocker cover, distributor and distributor cap and spark plugs.5 Take off the intake manifold support and move the No. 1 piston at "Top Dead Center" (TDC) of the compression stroke.6 Disconnect the cylinder head front cover, water pump pulley, thermostat housing, upper and lower tensioner and slack side timing chain guide, idler sprocket bolt, camshaft sprocket bolts, sprockets, mounting caps and camshafts. 7 Disengage the cylinder head with the manifolds, idler sprocket shaft, upper timing chain, center crossmember, oil pan and strainer assembly, crankshaft pulley, engine front mount and bracket and the front timing cover. Remove the oil seal and unfasten the timing chain cover, idler and crankshaft sprockets and the oil pump drive spacer. 8 Unfasten the timing chain guide. install Your Timing Chain 1 Grease the oil seal lip with engine oil and place it in the front cover. Verify that the No. 1 piston is at "Top Dead Center" (TDC) of the compression stroke. 2 Reconnect the crankshaft sprocket (marks should point toward the engine's front), oil pump drive spacer and timing chain guide and the lower timing chain. Line up all mating marks.3 Hook up the crankshaft sprocket and pulley, lower timing chain, front cover assembly, engine mount and front mounting bracket, oil strainer and pan assembly and center crossmember.4 Reattach the upper timing chain, idler sprocket (to the back side), cylinder head assembly, idler sprocket bolt and exhaust and intake camshafts. Place the intake camshaft knock pin at 9 o'clock and the exhaust pin at noon. Connect the camshaft bearing caps and distributor brackets and secure all mounting bolts.5 Eliminate any old material from the pan and cylinder block mounting surfaces. Rub on a 3.5 to 4.5mm bead of liquid gasket over the oil pan and cylinder block.6 Attach the upper timing chain to the idler sprockets and secure the cylinder head bolts.7 Refill the cooling system. Hook up the negative battery cable and any other disconnected items. Start the engine and look for leaks.

Overheats when idoling, but not while moving


possibilities include: fan clutch, water pump going out, missing fan shroud or baffles in front end, clogged radiator fins or a/c condensor may need cleaned. Possibly stuck thermostat, low coolant level , and this can be caused by faulty radiator cap. Hope this helps!

See if you have a leak in any of your coolant tubes. If no leaks, you may have a bad thermostat that is stuck closed and needs to be replaced asap.
