Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

My 2000 Nissan Maxima is dying right after I start it. I have to press on the gas for it to stay on. My check engine light is on and I previously had the spark plugs, wires and coils replaced and was told the light was for either my catalytic converter or my O2 sensor. I fixed the converter and replaced all three of the O2 sensors. What could the problem be?

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!
