My1996 Nissan maxima dies when I slow down to stop it also jerks sometimes


Check your pcv valve located on valve cover towards firewall. Pull it out and disconnect and shake it, if u don't hear the valve moving around change it.

1991 nissan maxima the car will run fine and just cut out i also noticed the tachometer will sometimes go 4000 rpms while stepping on gas pedal but the engine is missing and bairly running also i noticed...


Are you sure what you found is the temperature sensor? It sounds like it could be a faulty camshaft position sensor. That would explain the erratic idle and rpm spike. Will aslo cause the engine to skip because of the irregular signal being sent back to the ecm.

Why would the rpm for my 1997 Nissan Maxima go down to 550 when the car is in the idle position? The RPM's of my car go down to 550 when the car is at a stop light.


I don't really know where they should be in idle on your car, but if you don't apply your gas pedal, the RPM's should be low. My 18 wheelers RPM's are down to 500 in idle position and go up to 2300 when I step on my "diesel" pedal. If in neutral or park and you step on the gas...do your RPM's go up? If yes, all should be okay.

The car will not hold rpm.


If you check engine light is on the computer has a code to show what sensor is having issues or perhaps is broken.

If you can keep the car running by staying on the gas pedal its most likely a broken throttle position sensor or a broken idle air control.

Throttle position sensors *(TPS for short) are high wear since they are mechanically changing position everytime you move the gas pedal. The idle air control is less likely but still a possiblity.

Find an autoparts store that will read your on board diagnostic code *(called OBD 2 for short) for free and see if the code is something that just requires a new part.

TPS for a Nissan Maxima is 130-150 bucks! So doing this cheap is not going to be easy! The idle air control is over 200 bucks! Yipes!

Good luck with your repair and be careful!
