Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I need serious help! Not a single mechanic has been able to solve my problem! After a night of resting, when I start my 95 Maxima up, it starts up fine. As I drive and as the engine warms up, the car will start to skip. As the driving continues, I experience all of the following issues: 1. There is very little acceleration and the harder I press the gas, the RPM needle goes down and the car will threaten to shut off or it will shut off if I continue to hold it down. 2. It shuts off when I come to a complete stop at the light. 3. When I press on the gas, the engine won't pass 2,000 RPM. 4. I hear a grungy jumping noise when I press on the gas. 5. Often, when I press on the gas, the car will go, stop, go, stop, and eventually go skipping along the way. What is wrong?

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WERE RIGHT!!!!! I can not believe that after all of this time, energy, and money that it was something as simple as that! When I unplugged it, the situation didn't change. When I plugged it in though, it worked PERFECTLY! So I basically learned that either the wire has a shortage or it is not sitting on there securely. Either way, I'm going to replace that wire. Nevertheless your answer has led me to the solution! This has been a great help! I am about to talk about this website to EVERYONE! Thank you so much!!!

The mass air flow sensor is more than likely causing the problem. The mass air flow sensor is on the hose that runs from the air filter box to the fuel injection. Try to unplug the electrical connection to the mass air flow sensor and drive the car. The mass air flow sensor works like a choke. It controls the air to the engine. It sounds like your engine is not getting enough air once it is given throttle.

Is there an OBD1 readear for a 95 Nissan Maxima?

In rare cases your 1995 Maxima might use OBD2 but it is probably a OBD1. You could try an OBD1 reader but unfortunately OBD1 was not anywhere as useful for diagnostics as the OBD2.

My 95 maxima was just cuttn out on me and would go dead but usually move battery cables a little and it would crank, however we changed cable ends on battery, crank it and dtove doen the road, it went dead...

Battery went dead? If this is the case you probably have a dead short.Should pull starter possibly bad solinoid, My old Maxima had caused me similar issue, if you pull starter it usually can be tested at a local Auto parts store. In a vehicle that fails to start, the common problems are the starter solenoid and the starter motor. The starter assembly can be quickly pulled from a 1995 Nissan Maxima, and then can be further separated to replace one part of the starter assembly.The process does not require any special tools, and can be done by novice mechanics

Remove the high tension cable to the distributor from the ignition unit. Conduct a spark test. If there's no spark, try to replace the ignition coil or the igniter.

My 95 nissan maxima shifts hard from first to second then shifts good the rest of the gears

Look into issues with the throttle position sensor, i had the same problem with a 95 se. The sensor is directly responsible for shift intervals as it gives the ecm throttle position which doesnt go hand and hand with rpm. Sometimes the sensor needs adjustment, however this is not recommended if you dont have a scan tool to reset your ecm. check this page out
