Question about 1994 Nissan Maxima

Uneven oe irregular idle speed when warm

My 1994 Nissan Maxima has begun to have an uneven or irregular lope condition once it has warmed up. I have replaced the EGR valve and tried several other sensors to no avail. I found a vacume line that appears to be connected to a charcoal filter of some type but does not have another end to connect to. I do not have any service information on the car and have not been able to locate a book at any of the local auto parts places.

If the car has the original PCV valve, it's overdue for replacement. If not, PCV valves are inexpensive and easy to replace, therefore you can give it a try. However, a faulty valve and accompanying vacuum issues will usually cause a rolling, or somewhat rough idle. Once tested and eliminated or replaced, if you still have a low idle condition continue reading.

The Idle Air Control motor (inside the throttle body) controls idle using a variety of inputs through the Powertrain Control Module. Rough idle and stalling most often occur when the idle speed drops below normal rpm. This can be caused by an issue with any one of the inputs which control idle through the PCM or a problem with the Idle Air Control motor. Let me know how things work out for you on this. Good luck.

1999 nissan maxima idles rough when engine warms up and more prominent during summer months. no service warning light indicates the condition.what could be the cause?


May need to have the engine coolant temp sensor checked. It normally does not set a fault code but does send signal for fuel control until the engine warms up enough to enter closed loop fuel control.

What can it be ? My 2004 maxima se (auto 5 speed) is idling low when its warm ?


Needs carbon flush. You should take it to a place that knows how to relearn the idle as this year & model can be tricky. I have found that unpluging air flow meter then starting eng., repluging airflow,then clearing the code will set idle back to factory settings.

Possible TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) issue. The TPS controls idling speeds under all conditions. Although the truck may idle fine when cold, once warm, if you are encountering sputtering or stalling, the TPS could be the culprit. Other possibilities could be fouled spark plugs,bad wires, or a bad distributor cap.

1986 Nissan King Cab pick up. Runs good when giving gas, but cuts off at an idol. Have replaced Altenator.


Based on the information provided, it sounds like a bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). The TPS controls your idling speed under all conditions. When a TPS goes bad, you will usually notice the vehicle will idle when the engine is cold but once warm or with the AC on, it will sputter or stall.

2002 Jeep Liberty - 3.7 Liter - Engine has begun to die when rpm is at or near idle. Such as pulling into a parking place or stopped at traffic light. More frequent after engine has warmed. Once engine...


I would start with cleaning the throttle bore and plate. Then clean the Idle Air Control valve, IAC, as this is the device that controls idle speed. Use a can of spray carb cleaner and an old toothbrush. Trouble with the IAC would make sense if you can keep the engine going by holding down the gas pedal a bit.
Use the carb cleaner to check for vacuum leaks at hose connections and elbows. run engine and spray short bursts at hoses and listen for idle speed changes.
And lastly if problem is still there check MAP sensor.

My nissan maxima will not warm up inside when it is started and left to idle. will warm up if drove.


this is because your vehical is heated by hot coolant flowing through a small radiator the blower motor blows air through this and out your vents and gives u heat but unless you drive your vehical the coolant will not build heat for quite a period of time there for your interior will not warm up as quick
