O2 sensor and EVAP issues

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!!

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.

Oil leak and a Cylinder 1 misfire.


Nothing to do with fuel chemistry

As long as ANY light is on you have a problem

Are the upsteam or front O2 Sensors over 100,000 miles

Your exhaust converter is 12 to 14 years old,that's when they
just look good & do nothing inside

I got a 99 s10 that always pops an evap small leak detected code but never ran rough.Now this time the mil light came on I scaned it and its got a p0420 code and its been running rough. i know the cats...


The Cat is good,not if it is 12 years old

Only a select few last 14 years

O2 Sensors should be changed every 100,000 miles

Tune-up --- as in spark plugs?
No tune-up in my world, in the last15 to 20 years

ECM/PCM has been tuning all vehicles since 1980

An EVAP Code for a small leak or any evap issue,
obviously needs to be diagnosed & repaired within
a week,as you should with any OBD Codes,you don't
keep using the vehicle,you fix it

My car dies when it idles too long. What could


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!.

'97 Maxima GLE. Has sat for 2 months. Will start


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.

I failed the emisson's test. I have a 97 Nissan


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+.
