Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Cylinder skip The car cranks, but continues to miss a cylinder. Will not fire on all six cylinders. The mechanic thought we had it tracked down to being the chip. But the one we ordered didn't seem to crank the maxima. Something about needing a 920, 923, ??? Any suggestions. Shouldn't I be able to order the right part with a VIN number?

First, purchase a Haynes Manual for the specifics on your vehicle and a digital volt/ohm meter. Follow the instructions in the book on checking the ohm resistance on the coils to make sure all of them are in good working order. If one is out of range change only that one. On the distributor it is the same story in checking output for the signal to the computer. Only replace it if it is defective. But, the P1320 is pretty specific and that really points to the distributor. That is only from my experience... This would also make the random/multiple cylinder misfire.

I would say its the coil. A crank or cam sensor could cause one cylinder to miss, or go completely dead, but I doubt it would affect two cylinders. And you would get a code for either sensor.

Check compression on that cylinder. All the items you replaced could have been tested to see if they where working correctly. If they where than there was no need replace them and the next logical step would be to check for a mechanical failure rather than an electrical or engine management failure. In other words if the engine is not solid mechanically than there is no reason to replace electrical parts to try and solve the issue.

While drviing down freeway today the 2.5 ltr engine died and will crank but will not start. one month ago it was backfireing in intake and dieing on freeway and i thought i had bad gasoline it fixit


you need three main conponents for the engine to run,fuel,spark,compression . first have someone to crank the motor and put the spark plug lead of the plug and hold it near the block and if there is spark it will jump a inch or so, check the fuel filter , hold the fuel line clear of electirical and heat, crank engine , fuel will flow, when engine is running but running rough as a miss fire disconnect plug lead one at a time till you find missing cylinder

Motor is miss firing p3o3 changer ecu after few mins mis fires is my crank position sensor not reading the third cylinder for some reason i did a motor swap ran new motor 3 or 4 hours had miss shift...


your crank position sensor does not read individual cylinders, only the position of the crank shaft. make sure the plugs and wires are good, check the spark coming from the coil, make sure there are no vacuum leaks at intake manifold, check timing, then do a leak down test to make sure you don't have a bent or damaged valve in the cylinder head.

remove the plug from the #1 cylinder, and install it into the #2 cylinder , and put plug from # 2 clyinder in to #1 plug hole, connect plug wires, and start up vehichle, and if computer shows misfire on # 2 cylinder , then you have a bad plug, possibly porcelin insulator could have a hair line crack in it, hope that this information has helped you.
