There was a common issue on these vehicles involving the ground from the transmission. The negative battery cable bolts to the transmission. Over time the mating surface of the trans to the engine will corrode causing a voltage drop between the engine and trans. This throws off the 180 signal from the crank sensor and the car will do exaclty what you are describing. The absolute best fix for this is to remove the trans, clean the mating surface on the engine block and the trans, chase the trans mounting bolt threads in the engine block and bolts, apply some dielectric grease to the mounting surfaces and reinstall transmission. I know this is a big job, but many have tried to short cut it with no better results.

I have a 2005 Maxima and my BF ran it out of gas and sine then my car starts but wont stay unningeven after adding fuel. We have changed the MAF sensor also all 6 spark plugs. It still doesnt want to

Change the fuel filter then see if it will start.If it doesn't the you will need to check the fuel pressure if its not within the specs (CHILTON AUTO MANUAL) then replace the fuel pump.

Car runs great but suddlenly loses power or goes off. I replaced fuel pump and filter. Hard to tell if its electrical or a fuel system problem. Injectors, spark plugs look ok.

Have someone look at your MAF air flow sensor. It is a known problem on that generation Maxima and causes sudden loss of power and stalls.

1999 Nissan Maxima wont turn over. It cranks, but wont start. It isnt the battery cause its new. My friend said it may be an electrical problem or fuel pump. How can i determine if i am getting a spark? My...

Need three (3) things for an Internal Combustion Engine to run, FUEL, COMPRESSION, & IGNITION. To check spark, pull a plug wire and connect to a spark plug that is sitting on a metal (grounded) surface and crank the engine over. You should see a spark on the plug. If there's no spark present you have narrowed it down to an Ignition Problem, but there's still a mulitude of potential problems that'd cause that. Fuel injected engines do require much more fuel pressue than carb'd engines, so that may need to be checked (external fuel pressure gage) if there is a spark present.

DID you properly gap the spark plugs?? This will cause misfires and may cause hard or no start conditions. Also inspect all your Ignition coil boots for cracks or oil. Clean them and blow any oils in the spark plug chambers!!

Car turning off

Hi, first thing I'd check would be the fuel filter to make sure it's not restricted, then maybe sparkplugs etc, hope this gets you going :)

My nissan maxima will not start

Check timing belt. Shoot a timing light down at your crank. If the timing mark jumps around bad, your belt has slipped.

Suddenly my 1998 nissan maxima is not starting

You need to see if it has spark at the plugs. If it does then I suspect a clogged fuel filter or a problem with your fuel pump.
