Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
I have a 1996 Nissan Maxima GLE that has 207000 loving miles on it. This past week she has begun to hesitate when accelerating from a full stop and yesterday stalled at a stoplight for no apparent reason. No engine warning light. No funny sounds. Still runs fine 80% of the time. Only seems to happen after the engine is warmed up. Recently moved to an extremely hot, dusty, climate (Phoenix, AZ) and rarely used the A/C before here. Any suggestions? Heading to the shop tomorrow, but don't know of any good ones. Are there any online resources that can help me locate a good one that won't rip me off?
Have you tried checking the air flow meter? we had the same problem with our 2000 maxima

Had the same problem--found a very loose clamp on vacuum line. I believe it was accidently loosened as it sits right next to clamp from the top fuel line coming from the fuel filter. The filter was changed a couple thousand miles ago. It was right where the top fuel hose from the filter attached to the engine. With the clamps sitting together--it may have been loosened while changing the filter.

Maxima in 1996 didn't really have a problem with the air flow meters. I would see if the computer on top is clean. Se if you can get any water from the heater box/A/C box. There is a drain tube, that clogges up and water will leak onto your ECM/computer, flooding it. Ckeck your floor on passenger side right by the fire wall. Make sure that is dry. Let me know what you find.
