Question about Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Ihave a 2000 Maxima 3.0, and I am only getting about 350 km. to the tank and at these prices it is absurd. Could the fuel injestors be dirty and need cleaning? I've tried the Lucas Brand Injector cleaner and octane booster and still no difference. How can I improve the fuel economy withought buying a new car? Can't afford a new one anyway and really like this car.If the injectors need a good manual cleaning, how do I go about getting them out of the car. I am many things but not an auto mechanic as you can probably tell already and thank you for your help.

Petrol per km


Note the odometer reading. Fill the tank completely. Drive for 500-2000 km, refilling the tank as necessary, and recording exactly how much fuel is required each time to refill. At the end of the test, refill the tank one last time - recording how much fuel it required - and note the odometer reading again.

Add up all the fuel used in the entire test, NOT including the first fillup but INCLUDING the last one. The result is the fuel consumed during this test.

Subtract your starting odometer reading from your ending odometer reading. The result is the exact number of km traveled during this test.

Divide the number of km by the number of liters (km/l) to get your average fuel efficiency.

2000 nissan maxima engine hesitation problems


Has your Nissan sat for a period of time? If so, could be dirty gas...try adding 2 bottles of Heet gas line antifreeze and injection cleaner..also as this works, be sure not to let the gas level go below 1/4 tank...If needed check air filter dirty...throttle body dirty...Hope this helps.

Intermittent fuel pressure drop, to 5 psi, on a stratus 2.4l 1996


Sounds like a bad fuel pump to me.Or dirty fuel lines/injectors/regulator.

For a xg 350 2002 car dont start, ihave no gas coming does this car have a reset for the fuel pomp. tthe car had a small impact in the front about 30 km


this car does not have a reset switch like a ford. if you know for sure that there is no fuel pumping in the fuel line then check the fuel pump fuse and relay underhood. there shouldnt be any wire in the front of the car that causes the fuel pump to stop working if the wires in front are damaged by a collision. fuel pump is in the tank but there should be an access hole under the back seat bottom cushion. the seat cushion can be a pain to get loose.

VW Polo Classic, fuel efficiency problem


Has the car been serviced recently?
If not I would suggest getting it done.Not sure if you have diesel or petrol, but oil can thicken causing more load on the motor and airfilters get blocked and can cause a rich fuel mixture.

If petrol you can take out the plugs to check if they are a light brown colour, if very dark or black you need to check and adjust carb/injection settings/filter.Need to know what engine it is really.

Hello you need is help have a nissan maxima 1992 turn on fine but when I go up to 30mph in feet as if something was stuck igyetor change a fuel filter I feet that can be a sensor thanks for your help


check fuel pressure
the fuel line in the tank that connects the pump to the fuel line may have split.
if the fuel level is low you can hear the fuel spraying in the tank.
good luck

Uses excessive fuel


Brakes could be binding or hand bake cable holding on but you think youd smell burning brakes if that was the case!What condition is the oxy sensor in ,maybe carboned up and contaminated which can tell the engine management to supply more fuel than required.is the air filter air box in good condition and air box lid securely fastened.Should be sealed from air box to throttle body If the air filter is clogged and dirty that can lead to excess fuel consumption.Have you installed any injector cleaner in the fuel tank.cleans up dirty injectors thst can cause excess fuel consumption.
