You will have to see it. There are dentist type mirrors available in auto parts strore that will allow for you to see it, PLEASE do this when the engine is relatively cool. e.g. start-up. The coolant generally travels straight down, although this is not always the case it is a good indication as to the locatioon of the leak. It is impossible for the coolant to leak from between the block and pan. It appears so as the coolant travels along the rim of the oil pan on its way to the ground. If you can get a thin cardboard strips in there you can tell where the wet starts and stops

Yes, it will probably get messed up!! You might have already damaged the engine when you started it the first time. Re-check your cam and crank timing marks. Make sure they're EXACTLY lined up.
If in doubt, pay a mechanic to fix it!

Sounds like the lens of the laser needs to be cleaned and easiest way is to buy a cd player cleaner but you can take the player apart and clean that lens with a Qtip and some rubbing alcohol.

try taking the thermostat out, see if it still gets hot, if its a vg30 engine, there could be trapped air in the system, there is a bleeder valve on one of the heater hoses, passenger side, right at the firewall

There is no way to fix this issue according to my Nissan Dealer Service Manager. The monitors will not run and therefore the vehicle will not pass smog. If you need assistance from California's SMOG authority they are called "The Referee" and you can call them at 1-800-622-7733.

Buy a used BCM from a auto salvage yard . $20 buck's , Or buy a reman one .then have the dealer program it . Rather then guessing an replacing part's ( receiver ) They have a factory scan tool , do you ? They can view data inputs to the BCM ,can you ? They can tell if the module is communicating ,can you . They have factory service repair information ,do you ? Just because you don't like their price . These people have reman auto control module's

Sounds like a fuel issue if you have run it dry, maybe a blocked fuel filter, or maybe it needs new spark plugs, check the air filter as well.

code p 0500 is the VSS ( vehicle speed sensor)
code p 0600 is the CAN bus--malfunction
code p 1447 is the EVAP system
the car is 21 years old and there will be more problems that what you have been told about
The price that you would expect to pay is junk yard value and anything else would be a bottomless money pit for you

Check your fuses first.

Did you change the fuel filter. The fuel additive you used will not get the water out of an old fuel filter. Excessive water in the fuel could cause the misfire. The Maxima is probably due for timing belt due to age. Missing teeth on the timing belt will result in timing walk. The knock sensor is probably getting pre ignition signals. Look at the belt and get the fuel clean and go from there. (Do an OBDII Scan)
