SOURCE: How do I replace an egr valve on my 2000 Nissan

When you pop open the hood, look at the side of the engine on your right (driver's side). Underneath all the air intake duct that connects to your air filter is the EGR valve. It may  have a grey plastic top with an electrical connector attached to it (this top is about an inch and a half to two inches in diameter), a middle section below this that is made from a silvery metal with two rubber hoses plugged into it, and below this a bottom section with a metal pipe maybe three quarters of an inch in diameter connected to it. The metal pipe curves around and goes back behind the engine. There are two bolts that the valve is mounted on. To remove the valve, first you have to get a bunch of hoses and stuff out of the way to expose it, then disconnect the hoses and electrical connector from the valve, then disconnect the metal pipe connected to the base, then remove the two nuts on the two bolts. There is a gasket between the EGR valve and the engine which you will have to replace. It cost less than two dollars, good luck and hope this helps. WHen installing just do everything on revers. If you not sure if you can recall how the hoses goes back, take picture with your cell phone as reference.

SOURCE: How do i install body welt (molding around driver's side door)

if youre talking about the rubber that seals the door to the car when its closed, you just push that ****** on, and it slides neatly into place. its pretty straightforward. Sometimes it can be a pain to get to stay in place, but after a few days, it shoul conform to the plastic interior panels and stay in place.

is that what you were talking about?

SOURCE: I am having problems finding the idle air control

It is always attached to the intake or throttle body in the one piece either below sticking to intake or is either at the throttle and is the only one with an electric plug on to it, on the Maxima 04 I know that it is s ingle piece with the throttle body.....and is held by 4 screws and the gasket most of the times can be reused....

Good luck.

take it to an accredited auto transmission specialist shop for an exact diagnosis of the fault

2003 nissan maxima p0021 bank 2 cam timing 40 degrees advanced at idle

To review - - the intake valve solenoid valve controls the flow of oil thru the control valve to adjust valve timing.
The code means the computer "sees" the valve timing as out of range and/or not controllable.
Possible causes could be a defective or stuck solenoid valve, dirty oil causing a blockage, a faulty cam sensor or faulty crank sensor.
Other than changing the oil and filter, the components would need to be checked with a scanner that can look at live data.

Its sputtering and blowing smoke out of the tailpipe. whats the problem?

Hello! #1 question; Is the Check Engine Light (CEL) on? This means the computer has stored a fault and in order to troubleshoot the cause I'll need the code...Take the vehicle to an auto parts store and, for free, they will read the code...Send it to me...

If the CEL is not on; Pull the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve...Give it a shake...If you do not hear the little ball that lives inside rattling around; you have found the fault...Replace PCV valve...
See photo below...The PCV valve is located in the rear valve cover, just behind the throttle body

let me guess its a five speed automatic tha toperates perfectly when cold but the longer you drive and the hotter it gets the worse it performs?these unts have a very high notoriety for shift valves stiicking in valve body when hot.....slip shift shock on down shift and delayed ,harshengagement from rverse to drive etc.put a valve body in it as long as fluid is not black....brown is ok,and you will be good to go.please let me know how it comes out.
