My 97 Maxima (GLE, 3.0L, Manual) was recently involved in a front end collision. I got 99% of the car fixed by myself but now i'm coming up with 2 codes, P0446 and P0132. Where is the EVAP Canister on a 97? and Which o2 sensor is for Bank 1, Sensor 2?? Thanks!!

Re: O2 sensor and EVAP issues
P0446 is Aux Emission Control
P0132 Fuel Air Metering
The Evap Canister is located in the fender well, if I am not mistaken and the B1S2 is the O2 sensor is the second O2 sensor on the left side of the engine if your looking at it from the front of the motor.

The most common problem with 2000 Maxima stalling when idling is the end of life of its mass air flow sensor. It is usually accompanied by the sporadic lost of power and increased gas consumption. You can buy the replacement sensor on the net for ~$70 and install it yourself in 5-10 min. It is also highly recommended to vacuum the sensor housing after removing the old sensor and replace the air filter as well. I did it on my 2000 Maxima GLE three weeks ago, after experiencing all the issues above for almost a year, and all problems had gone for good. Good luck!.
start witha new fuel filter and perhaps a intank additive such as heat. also look inside the air box for nests. also common. if all is clear, let it run and idle for about 10-15 minutes look underneath the vehicle and look to see if anything under there is cherry red. if not try holding the accelerator down for a few momoents and check again. if it glows, replace the catalytic converter.
P0136 indicates a bad O2 sensor. This reports poor emission performance back to the car's PCM (computer) P0325 indicates a bad "Knock" sensor which would adversely effect drivability as far as performance is concerned. Only way to fix these 2 problems is replacement of the 2 components.
That was happening to my 97 GLE as well. I wound up having to replace the alternator. Good thing I did my mechanic said it could have gone up in flames if I'd waited. I'd ask a knowlegdable mechanic or dealer first, it was $200+.
