I would check all your hoses from the gas tank to the engine and if it in the breather if could be that your not burning the fuel and it sending it in the intake instead try spark plugs and wires maybe distributer cap and rotor and if it is still in the intake i see of you injector are sealed right

92 maxima jerking an sputtering does not stall what could this be

It could be one or a combination of a few things. 1.) There could be moisture in the gas. 2.) A bad fuel filter. 3.) If you seem to lose power as you're driving, it could be your converter. I would check the fuel filter first.

Turns over well but is slow to fire off sometime. Can smell gas fumes inside the car as well as the outside. No black smoke from ehaust and no fuel leaks.

if you smell gas YOU DO have a fuel leak.... make sure your gas cap is good and or tight, also might want to look at your fuel pressure regulator.. the fuel system is pretty simple... let me know!

Smell raw gas

You have a gas leak somewhere of the tank vent system is leaking or blocked. You need to follow the fuel pipes and vent pipes to find the problem. Some Nissans did have problems with their vent systems, but whatever you do proceed with caution and watch what light source you use.

My 1995 Nissan Maxima wont start. I smell gas.

Sounds like a bad fuel pump, check if the smell comes under the rear wheels and also check for a loud humming noise when the key is turned to on. Those are signs of a bad fuel pump.
