Question about 1995 Nissan Altima

Open Question

89 Maxima VG30E engine power transistor has zero continuity when tested per the Chilton manual and yet the car runs, just not as it should. I do not fully trust the manual and don't want to buy another power transistor without corroboration of the manual's test procedure.

1996 villager vg30e distributor won't turn, gear inside engine does not turn

You have defective camshaft drive timing belt (also runs the distributor). Pull the front cover off the engine and take a look. This is a free running engine and the broken belt will cause no damage to the engine valves in this make, it is a different story in other models like the Maxima.

Timing marks for 1993 nissan pathfinder 3.0 v6 engine

If this is the same VG30E, 3.0L engine used in the Quest and Maxima, go to the Villager Quest site and look in the engine file. It's all there. the trick to getting the timing belt on, is to have a helper so you can slide the belt on all 3 gears at once.

Ok i have a 1996 nissan maxima 3.0 i have had this problem before replaced front three plugs and it was fine now it wont start at all i replaced all the plugs and then i noticed the plugs are being flooded...

I have experienced the same issue in my Pathfinder that has the same VG30E engine. I would recommend that you change your plugs to the NGK Vgrooove Copper plugs, or go with the iridium series. If you are running anything other than that, you are not going to receive the intended spark for the engine. I took someone's recommendation and used the Bosch platinum plug, and let me tell you that was a huge mistake, I lost power, performance, and the plugs fouled out causing the engine to miss.
