A range of problems starting with something as simple as a nasty injector.

Sounds like an injector problem.
Many owners with vehicles which came with injectors DO NOT look after the proper
maintenance of them
My brother-in-laws 2001 had this problem which dissipated after he ran a 1/2 tank full of hi test and a couple of cans of injector cleaner.
DON'T DO THE FOLLOWING; Germany many garages (private garages) would add a liter (quart) of Diesel to the Regular petrol to run through the system - which I tried on a sluggish 1989 Porsche 911 Carera.

I also replaced the Digital Motor Electronics fuel injectors with a set of Lucas' Porsche did the same as your Nissan

A simple hook up to a computerized analyzer should get to the cause in 10.8 secs flat.

Have you inspected the catalytic converter for blockage? The other issue could be fuel pressure...the fuel regulator could be defective. Hope this helps.

I took front coils on 2000 Nissan maxima and #6 didnt fire like 2 an 4

Take the number 2 and put it in place of 6. If that 6 fire then your solution is a new coil. If it still doesnt fire you have a control issue and the pcm will need to be addressed

This happened to me before. You probably need to replace your mass air flow.

My nissan maxima 2000 does not have any power

Change the fuel filter first, but it sounds just like a plugged catalytic converter. You could remove the pre cat O2 sensor and try driving it. It would be very noisy but if it goes better, you know you have a restriction behind it and it's time for a new cat.
