Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

2 Answers

Power loss at 80mph

I have a 2000 maxima and I am getting a power loss. If I am at full throttle the engine pulsates between gear shifts. If I come off the gas and reapply it will stop and start accelerating again until it reaches the next gear and it happens again. Now once I reach 80 mph the power cut out and I have to let it slow to about 65 then I can resume driving. 80 being the maximum speed. What is the problem. Thanks

Fuel problem or the ECM and or chip has a 80mph limiter. Or your really winding out the engine, in which case, by the time you read this it will be too late.

Engine judders at constant throttle opening at any speed & in any gear


Could be the torque converter in the transmission for an automatic transmission. Manual transmission will only do this when shifting gears, mostly the lower gears. This would be the clutch plate wearing out.

I have a suzuki jimny 2002 and get check engine light on and code P1600 an P0763 and when the switch is on i hear the relay on the TCM. can you suggest?


P0763 - Shift Solenoid C Electrical
Possible causes- Faulty shift solenoid C valve
- Shift solenoid C valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid C valve circuit is open or shorted
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
When is the code detected?The P0763 code is detected when the gear required by the ECM does not match the actual gear when vehicle is driven.Symptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Transmission will not shift gears.P0763 Description Shift solenoid valve C is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position.

The speedometer reads 70-80mph while in park but the rpms are around 2000. when put into gear it drops back to 0 mph. is that a cluster problem or a speed sensor?


it is problem with speedo sensor coz if it is problem with cluster then when you putting gear it should not get drop, while shifting gear that sensor getting some vibrations so it shows some deflections . replace sensor and solve your problem, thanks.

2000 Nissan Maxima sounds like its not shifting into 3rd gear


What do you mean by loud... Loud where??? If noise is from engine, make sure that the mechanical fan clutch is not "locked" (it's supposed to freewheel when cold... if it does not, it will "roar" when driving.
