Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
Took 1995 above model in last week to have it repaired for the engine shaking whenever car was started. Shaking would go away after 3 minutes and not shake rest of day unless it was parked for over 1 hour.
Repair shop fixed the shaking, but charged me $897 for replacing rack & pinion. I told them I never had power steering problems at all, and they should of called me before starting repair. Oh, new garage says there was a leaking gasket by the steering column that was spraying rich fuel with a hissing noise and old garage fixed that plus 2 belts they had broken.
New garage thinks all I had was a gasket that was leaking and had no pressure when starting.
Help, I'm going to report the old garage to Better Business.
I'm wondering if your injectors are leaking. If they are, and the car sits for a period of time like you're saying, fuel would puddle up and the car would run extremely rich until the excess puddled fuel burned off. Did you (or do you) notice black smoke from the tailpipe during the time the car is running really rough? Take a look and see - rev the engine if you need to, and see if you see some. It'd take a few minutes to burn off, and once it did, as long as the rest of the car is working right, you'd run normally. If you shut the car off for a short time (ie, getting gas, renting a movie) the car likely wouldn't sit long enough for enough fuel to puddle up for the condition to recur. If you park it overnight, that's plenty of time for the injectors to leak enough fuel for the car to run rough on startup.
No guarantee of course, but that's what sounds like a worthwhile investigation to me.
