Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

2002 Nissan Maxima SE. It pings under a light load and tends to be both at lower speeds and now even on the freeway when there is a light load. When accelerating it's not a problem. I am not getting any errors on the computer either--no trouble lights or codes. I have tried different plugs and wires and still nothing. I have tried a higher octane fuel and still no change.

Your knock sensors might have gone bad, allowing the engine to ping. The knock sensors would usually retart the timing, to stop that pinging. They don't illuminate the check engine light when they go bad, but the code will be stored in the ecm if they're bad. Have your engine codes read to see if that's the problem.

Just replaced valve covers on Nissan Maxima 2002 due to misfire. Now it smokes and burns oil every start? What's should I do .


If is is only smoking when you first start it up. Most likely the valve guide seals, oil is leaking into the cylinders and smoking when you start it up.

Why did my VDC, slip, ABS and brake lights come on all at the same time while driving? 2005 maxima se


Hi there,

You should first of all check the fuse for the abs under the hood. If that is ok, then get ready to fork out a couple of thousand dollars to fix it. It is probably the abs actuator, due to a speed sensor malfunction. Both will need to be replaced. Don't bother calling Nissan, they will not help with this issue.

Getting a ping on my '02 Maxima between 1800 and 2000 rpm. light to med load. I am using 93 octane gas. Timimg was recently retarded 2 deg at dealer but not much help. Analyzer showed no sensor faults....


Hello , does the pinging only happen when the car is at normal running temp , or anytime you press the accelerator? What temp is the car operating at? It may be running to hot or to lean as well. It may have a valve timing issue cause by a faulty sensor. Quinn , Arizona
