Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima
I have a 97 maxima with 201k miles. When the car is running it sounds rough like something is rubbing. I checked all my fluids they are OK. I do smell radiator fluid and there was a small quarter sized drip on the ground on the passenger side 6 inches to the left of the tire. When I drive the car it has not ran hot or anything.
When i pop the hood and let the engine run the sound seems to come from the passenger side near the belts.
Check the tension pulley. It has an adjustment on top to set belt tension. On mine the bushing in the pulley went bad and made a rough rubbing sound. I replaced the entire unit as an assembly. Noise went away.
