360 hassle - since you have a check-engine light on, and your car is an OBD2 car (96 or newer), go to AutoZone and have the ECU scanned (it's free). They'll give you the fault code(s), which you can post up here, and we can diagnose it then.

Depends on why the light was turned on. If it was a problem with an emissions component, the problem may still exist.

98 Nissan Maxima - Check Engine Light, Knock Sensor


If the car is pinging you will set a knock sensor code.'
This comes from bad gas and running lean., You really need this professionally inspected to rule out the basics. I have seen alot of nissans with the knock sensor code stored but the light is still off.
Fill up the tank with high octane chevron and some techron injector cleaner and clear the light. If it stays off for a couple days then go get it inspected. Even if the code is stored it will still pass as long as the light is still off and the monitors have run.

Wont pass nys emission inspection. check engine light wont turn off.


Have the computer scanned (see my tips and tricks section for a free way to do so - click my screenname and go to Tips and Tricks). There are either latent codes (codes which are set but are not tripping a check-engine light) or you have an issue with a readiness code.

Once the codes are scanned, post them here as a reply/comment and I can work with you on solving the issue.

1996 Nissan Maxima GXE Fail Smog Check Due To ECM System Failure


There is no way to fix this issue according to my Nissan Dealer Service Manager. The monitors will not run and therefore the vehicle will not pass smog. If you need assistance from California's SMOG authority they are called "The Referee" and you can call them at 1-800-622-7733.

P0440 Evaporative Emission Control System Malfunction P0446 Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Control Circuit Malfunction P1400 EGRC Solenoid Valve My car won't pass inspection because of...


You need a charcoal canister and vent control valve.

You also need the EGR solenoid valve (I think it the brown one).

Valve is located in the valley of the V, towards the transmission side of engine.

Do these 1st and reset light. You may have other issues but you have to start here.
